watermock jr. AKA Kaptain Winky:
Alerts: (B: BULK/SIZE) Lacks size/bulk for position
Comments: Strengths: Is a fine athlete with a nose for the ball. Has very good initial quickness and burst. Anticipates the snap count well. He has very good top-end speed and catlike quickness taught by his position coach, Beezlebub. Shows good closing burst to the quarterback as a pass rusher. He is active and instinctive versus the run. He is at his best in space, plays with a high motor, and makes a lot of plays in pursuit from behind. He also is a powerful tackler when he can line up his hit.
Weaknesses: Is vastly undersized. He has the frame to continue to get bigger, but he gets pushed around too much when reached. He must improve his overall bulk and lower body strength.
Bottom line: Winky dominated the lower Division IA collegiate competition his final two seasons at Troy, as he finished his season with 29.5 tackles for loss and 18 sacks, his junior season in 2003 with 26 TFL and 23 sacks and his senior season in 2004 with 48 TFL and 42 sacks. Winkie is a vastly undersized defensive end that will either have to move to linebacker in the NFL or play a role as a situational pass rusher. His best fit would be as a rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Winky is somewhat unpolished and he needs to continue to get bigger and stronger. However, his athletic ability, top-end speed and flair for making the big play as a pass rusher and run-defender makes him an attractive late-Day 1 prospect. In order to solidify a spot in the first day, Kaptain Winky will have to put his off field troubles behind him.
