    Hi all,
    With college games getting closer and closer I was trying to think of a way that we could all utilize each other to do some scouting for next years draft.
    I plan on DVRing as many games as possible, but being in the midwest I am limited to the games I get and the amount of DVR space my wife will allow me to use up.
    I though it would be a fun idea if each of us picked a game or 2 or people could request games/players that they would like to scout and then give weekly reviews of those players games.
    For me, I probably would come on here on thursday or something and list out what games I can get and then I would ask you guys which players and games you would like me to watch and I would do those particular games.
    Is anyone else interested in doing something like this?

    Very much so...

    But I don't know of any way to get ahold of any "Coach's Tape" or "All 22 Tape" if that's what it's called...And any analysis based on what we can see on TeleVision is, frankly, about as reliable as that of those clowns at FootBall Focus. :eek:

    If you or anyone has any insight as to how to get ahold of this elusive Tape, I would be VERY gratefull to know it...

    This is always a lot of fun. I try to watch as many college games as possible during the year, and while television isn't the best for football scouting, it's more than adequate for my purposes.

    You see, I know less about football than I would like. I am a movement artist, however, and I understand bio-mechanics pretty well. Instead of breaking down scheme, then, I do my best to analyze the quality of a player's coordination and body control, explosion, and overall athleticism. If I then see the requisite attention to detail (playing within the scheme, etc), along with the right size and mindset, then I flag the player as a Patriots type prospect.

    I'm quite comfortable choosing players that will do well at the next level, whether with the Patriots or with someone else. The one year I did fantasy football, I chose an all-rookie team. My friends laughed at me, but I ended up with a winning season. :D My way certainly isn't foolproof, but it does bring a completely different perspective to the table. It's just one resource, and I hope some of you find it useful.

    Unfortunately, no I do not know how to get a hold of "22 tape" except maybe for the Iowa State Cyclones, and even that will be hit or miss depending on what my friend on the staff can get.
    I was just going to use old fashion TV.

    If you keep two eyes on Jake Bequette for us that would be great.

    I don't remember his name...all I know is that he is white and is a DE for the Hogs. I watched the Sugar Bowl game and I was kinda impressed with him. Think he played 4-3 LDE. Not sure if he is a senior though.

    This is going to be awesome!
    I figure I will put up what games I can get that week on thursday and let people pick which 2 or 3 games or players they would like me to watch. That way it helps me get to know some of these guys that I might not have on my radar.

    Yeah that's Bequette. He's one of the better DE's in the SEC...he is a senior and four year starter. There should be several players drafted off of this team with so many seniors

    He definately got outshined by cameron heyward in that game though...he destroyed us

    I'll give my .02. I will go to 4-5 PSU games. Nice home sked this year; Alabama, Nebraska and Iowa. I always DVR and rewatch the games too. And, don't tell anyone. Even though I went to PSU. I've been a Sooners fan since I was a kid. I loved the wishbone and rb's they used to have; Pruitt, Washington, Sims, etc. I still follow them closely. And for those draftniks. On Stoops weekly show. On Fox Sports Southwest he shows the whole 22 film. Very nice. Usually Wed or Thursday afternoon. I'll post when I see a sked. Also, with us going to a 4-3. Maybe some of their front 7 def. players will fit our scheme better. I'm thinking Travis Lewis their olb.

    The Alabama secondary has to be the best in college football this season. SS Baron and FS Lester and CB Kirkpatrick are all studs. Add to that NT Chapman, ILB Higtower, ILB/OLB Upshaw, and OG Barrett Jones and there is a ton of talent on that team that is playing our pre 2011 defense.

    We still will have a lot of 2 gap principles I believe. Wouldn't discount any Bama players yet. You still covering the SEC? If so, I look forward to your first hand reports. I'm anxious to see South Carolina this year.

    PSU has a couple of guys who could be on our rader. A DT who's a senior. Devon Still. Kind of similiar to J. Odrick. Not sure if you think that's good/bad. A couple of lb's on the way. Michael Mauti is a 4th year junior who is very fast. Not ready for this draft imo. Another junior is Gerald Hodges a former HS All American safety who outgrew the position and is up to 240 and playing olb. And, maybe the best of the bunch is Khari Fortt a soph. olb from Connecticut.

    The scary thing is alabama fans think the other CB Menzie could end up being better than kirkpatrick. Not looking foward to playing them this year

    I will be at all the MSU games (Youngstown State, Florida Atlantic, Central Michigan, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Indiana). But I highly doubt I'll be in any condition to scout players.

    I will be going to all the UConn games this year. Also I watch a ton of OSU, LSU, and basically all SEC games. I will definitely give my opinions of players I see on here.

    What did you think of Stevan Ridley as an LSU player?
    What players will you be particularly looking forward to seeing this year? Any that you feel fit the "Patriots" mold?
