Default DT's at the Senior Bowl

Haven't heard any buzz about this guy, but sounds like he is doing well at the Senior Bowl

Baylor DT Phil Taylor continues to impress; hes an immovable object at almost 340 pounds. They even triple teamed him in scrimmage on passing plays, but he was still throwing people around including undersized Florida State OG Rodney Hudson. Taylor shows surprising agility for his size and certainly isnt this year's Mount Cody; Taylor looks like hell be a full time player for some 4-3 scheme. Meanwhile, Hudson generally continually compensated for his lack of height and bulk with tenacity and technique and may ultimately project to C at the next level.

Also Cedric Thornton is a guy I've never heard of...any one know anything about these guys?

Another surprise was Southern Arkansas DT Cedric Thornton who was almost unblockable. He ate up Auburn OT Lee Ziemba who had moved inside to OG. Thornton looked quick and agile with great balance and speed in drill work. And while Ziemba struggled inside at OG, Georgia G/T Clint Boling fared no better moving outside to OT for a while.

Denver definitely needs playmakers along the defensive line. I'm surprised they peg him as a 4-3 because of his size. Because so many teams have changed to a 3-4, he's likely to go higher, because of that. It is interesting that the notable player he was "throwing around" in the report was an undersized guard. I'm not knocking him, I just think that's funny.

Stanford DT Sione Fua may have been the story of the day. He was close to dominant inside with great, functional strength and above average quickness. He also got great leverage by staying low as he either penetrates or stones the line-of-scrimmage versus opponents‘ run blocking. Fua came to Mobile looking to show NFL teams that he can play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme and so far appears to be doing it.

Taylor was getting praise for using his hands in the pass rush drills. The thing on those you have to remember is they don't have to think about run or pass so the D-linemen are teeing off.

This kid from Stanford is killin it I guess

SIONE FUA/DT/#92 is the best inside DL on the NORTH roster. He is strong and tough, but he also shows nice athleticism and very good use of the leverage advantage he has at 6’2 against most of the OL he faces. I still think he is best suited or a 3-4 NT slot, but he has enough quicks to function in a 4-3. When not getting pocket pressure he absolutely stones the line-of-scrimmage so that the lB corps can get to the ball. He is helping his DRAFT stock greatly so far.

And he is a polite, bright young man. I spent a half-hour at dinner Monday night just chatting. He claims no resentment from the STANFORD team at the departure of HC HARBAUGH to the 49‘ers. he told me that HARBAUGH had told the team he would never leave them for another college job (sorry MICHIGAN) but his dream was to coach in the NFL.

I would love to get a BIG kris jenkins/bj raji type linemen like phil taylor if we can get him in the second. It would be awesome if we could grab peterson with the second, and taylor,and kerrigan (if we trade orton for second rounder). That would instantly improve our d. Our d-line would be doom,talyor,bannan,ayers with thomas,vickerson rotating a dt and kerrigan rotating in at DE. Would be pretty awesome!

Speaking of Kerrigan, he looksa great also:

RYAN KERRIGAN is a quick-twitch player who uses his quickness to get past blockers before they can get their hands solidly on them. he is also a relentless chaser of the ball and/or the QB. His overall size and game remind me a great deal of JARED ALLEN. But because he played in the Big Ten i think he’s more ready for the pro game than ALLEN was at first. He plays smart, but also like his hair is on fire under that helmet.

Fua is a stud. I don't get why most draft sites have him going after Taylor & Powe @ NT. And if Fox/Allen really are going to run a hybrid 34/43 he's a better fit at 310. Taylor's weight is a big red flag.

I've watched a few Stanford games this year and you hear Fua's name called out a lot. He's a player.

Yeah that guys is going to be a good player. In all four years he has had at least 7 sacks and his numbers rose each year. He will be a 10 year starter with consistency at least 7 sacks a season. He would be a real steal in the second round.

Notes on Taylor from the weigh in: "Carries size REAL well. Big man! Not flabby at all."

Long time fan of Taylor, Fua reminds me WAY too much of former "also looks great doing drills" Somoan lineman with nearly identical measurables and lack of production: Isaac Sopoaga.

Say yes to Taylor, let some other retards bust on Fua in the 4th round.

I read somewhere that Paea was injured during practices here, torn miniscus or something like that, how long of a recovery does that present? Any chance he would drop into the second?

Taylor was being thought of as a 3rd round pick just a short time ago. He seems like a NT in the 3-4 and there aren't many of those. It will be interesting to see what where he ultimately goes.

Phil talyor reminds me of Shaun Rogers. I tell ya honestly I would rather grab him instead of farley or dareus and trade back and grab some picks then pick peterson. Just imagine this defense
DE- Doom, Kerrigan
DT- Taylor, Bannan
Reserves- Thomas, Ayers, Vickerson, Hunter
OLB- Williams, FA
MLB-Matthews
Reserves- Mays, Haggins
CB-Peterson, Cox
FS-Champ(ball hawk ie Sharper with the saints)
SS-Dawkins(in the box ie Roman Harper with the saints)
Reserves- Mcbeth, Syd, FA cb, draft pick S

A huge NT like Taylor will not last till the 3rd round they are too hard to find and don't come around too often if he's there with our early 2nd I would be surprised

If he does, can we afford to risk it anyway? It's very unfortunate for that guy, as he was moving towards the up the board.

I think the dreaded torn miniscus is pretty common. Now if a guy's been scoped to having Stinky type knees, it's another issue. I'm looking forward to Paea at the combine. He's a workout warrior, so does he have any upside left and is he strong-big/fast enough to be dominant at the next level.
