As I said earlier, good DL can avoid getting cut block with solid technique and effort. TAHt can be easily corrected. Playing high though, is a lack of fitness and discipline. Going to have to watch for that when I get there.
I am still on DB's and a ton of these guys are good, but a bunch need to be a FS at the next level. Way too many tall, 4.5+, stiff hipped CB's on the back end of the draft. The small school guys are getting scouted way better like Alford and BW Webb and getting put higher initially.
I like Brandon Williams, I have been beating that drum for quiet some time. I don't think he's a first round pick, especially with some of the bigger school guys getting majority of the recognition. But.. some of the safeties we are looking at are in that same 2-3 round range.
Jenkins is deff not getting up and making a play, but I think he can refine his technique and work on leverage. I would assume we stay in our two gap scheme, so I would like a disruptive two gap player. Jenkins could fit that mold, Short could fit in, though he may be better in a traditional 4-3.. Williams is by far my favorite, he's a combo of those two players.. But why take him in the first if he's there in the second? I'm curious if we do take 2 safeties in the draft or if we envision Thomas as a FS..? Where do you think Thomas is a better fit?
Also can you shed some light on Will Davis for me.. CB Utah State.
