    Yes, depending on the other options available. He stresses defenses vertically and in red zone. Incomplete player, maybe, but his blocking isn't poor enough to keep him off the field, and his strengths/roles are well defined.

    Fant at 21, Butler at 56 and then a Mecole Hardman later (I’m thinking he can contribute immediately as a returner) would be interesting. Maybe pick up Max Scharping and Khalen Saunders or to round out the top 101.

    It might be worth tracking Miami defensive pre-draft contacts. A few similar names to our own contact list.

    I decided to do a quick scan of the Texans, Lions, Dolphins and Titans defensive pre-draft contacts because I think we’re all of a type. There’s a lot of defensive names that we’ve had contact with that appear on all, or most of the others. But some names that are on all, or most, of their contacts and not on ours are:

    LJ Collier
    Charles Omenihu - Actually I think we might have met with him at the combine
    Chase Winovich
    Maxx Crosby
    Terrill Hanks
    Sione Takitaki

    Don’t discount these names, they’re clearly considered scheme appropriate.

    You've already got them both listed, I believe:

    Oh ok thanks. Terez Hall looks to be a second contact however because the previous one was a pro day contact. So that’s two second late contacts. That is interesting for both.

    Love the flashes, for sure. His tape and testing suggest an explosive linebacker (39" vert) but he sprained his Achilles during his 40 so he only managed a 4.9, which doesn't match the speed that shows up on the field. He's only about 230, though, so it's tough to imagine the Patriots drafting him earlier than, say, 134.

    He’s supposed to lack instincts if I remember his scouting report but there was a stage in the 2017 season where he ranked second in the sEC as a linebacker according to pff to only Roquan Smith. As a day 3 pick he sounds very interesting. A 39.5 vert for a linebacker is pretty special.

    Takitaki should be given some really serious consideration as a PTP.

    Found another visit and it’s an interesting one.



    1. This is a second contact. Nick Caserio was at the Toledo pro day
    2. He’s considered by the some the best route-runner in the draft. I’ve heard Antonio Brown comps for him (play style, not suggesting he’s as good)
    3. Poor athletically though.
    4. PFF love him.

    One key thing to note, Johnson returns punts and kickoffs.

    Love Johnson. Seems to play faster than his timed speed as he gets in and out of his breaks so quickly. Would love him in the 4th

    Not sure if I brought up Tak but all are definitely PTP & mentioned in my thread. Love Winny, really fun tape. Hopefully Gary acquires some of his gifts as he progresses.

    Johnson is rated the 12th overall WR by NFLDraftScout.com with a 3rd round rating.
    5'10 4/8", 183 lbs, 1.59 10 yard split, 4.53 - 40, 33.5 in vertical, 10'03 broad, 4.45 shuttle and a 7.09 3-cone.

    The shuttle is horrible, but the 3 cone isn't bad.

    If he plays faster than his numbers, then it's a good thing and could be a valuable day 2/3 pick.

    Those are all combine numbers.. Supposedly only did the vertical at his pro-day..
