Poe is an interesting prospect, to say the least. With the great combine, he likely improved his draft position. However, it is wide open as to where he may go. Carolina or St. Louis could be interested in him in the top-10. Philadelphia or the New York Jets could want him in the middle of the round while Pittsburgh or Denver could take him late in the first round. From what it looks like, Poe could be the very definition of someone who goes too high and does not pan out or gets drafted low and excels at the professional level.

While Poe impressed scouts at the Scouting Combine, he has not really impressed scouts on the football field during gameplay. Memphis plays in Conference-USA, which is not a conference known for its football talent. Despite this, Poe had a relatively small stat line during his three years at Memphis. In 2011 Poe had 33 tackles overall with eight tackles for loss. He also only had one sack and two forced fumbles.In the past, he has also received a reputation of taking plays off. While he may not play every down at the professional level, he is going to have to give it everything he has when he is on the field.

In conclusion. Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane has midget arms and he will get dominated at the NFL level even more than he did in Conferance USA.
