I dont see him being an impact player though. That is not a bad thing, but just something to keep in mind.
2) I also like grabbing an edge rusher. However, I worry about Jordan's length in converting to OLB. 6'7" is a lot of length, and I dont think he has the elite athleticism to help him overcome it. I think he will look awkward in the NFL coming off the edge. I would not hate the pick, but it would make me nervous.
3) Hyde is a great pick. No complaints.
3) I dont know a lot about Bailey, but Arkansas has looked like crap in the very little that I have seen. Furthermore, I would think that an OT would be taken before an OG, since we have Jones and Brooks waiting in the wings.
4) Davis is a good pick as well. Athletic as hell.
5) Stoneburner is definitely a Hernandez type TE. He wont ever be an overpowering blocker, but he will stretch the seams with the best of them.
5) I really, really like Jackson. Again, I worry that he wont declare this year. As a smaller school prospect, leaving school early if you are not a top couple round lock is gutsy.
6) As much as I like Jackson, I dislike Armstrong. It is only a 6th, but I dont think he has a place on the team, especially at SS. However, if, as wolf suggested, he adds 10-20 lbs and moves to ILB, then he could be interesting as a ST and package player. He has a lot of talent.
7) BPA is always good.
Nice work! I would be happy with this draft.
Here is som good info on Dion Jordan from 2007 where he was a WR. Interesting read that might answer some of your concerns. http://hsarizona.scout.com/2/642743.html
At 6'6 220 pounds and running sub 4.6 in the forty, Jordan has the ability to play a variety of positions at the next level. He plays mainly wideout for the Wolves and he shows great hands. He is willing to go across the middle and make tough grabs and is a receiver that catches with his hands rather then with his body. He can create serious matchup problems with his height at the next level.
Jordan's frame is such that he could easily hold another 30 pounds and make the move to tightend. He shows a rare trait among high school wide receivers and that is the ability and willingness to block. He uses his body to not only shield defenders but he will put a DB on their backside. Some may question is ability to block at the next level
Another little known bit of info: http://www.azcentral.com/sports/coll...regon-bcs.html
One of the cars at the house ran out of gas and Jordan watched as his friends tried to siphon some from another car using a vacuum cleaner.
They stopped for a while but left the vacuum on and walked out of the garage. Jordon looked over. Someone should turn that off, he thought.
He walked into the garage, alone, and flipped the vacuum's "off" switch. It released a spark, which triggered a flash fire that leaped onto Jordan.
