Tyrann Mathieu does look good. May worth 3rd pick. If no concern, probably worth 2nd pick I think.

Spikes is 260 pounds and is an elite run stuffer...something Teo isn't. Spikes also has the same problem Teo has in coverage....he's just not fast enough.

Quote:
According to ProFootballFocus (subscription-only), Spikes grades out cumulatively as just the 29th-ranked ILB in pass coverage, which frankly sounds about right.

Brandon Spikes is rated 21st out of 53 ILBs in coverage by PFF for ILBs taking >25% of team snaps in 2012. He was worse in the postseason.

I've met him. I wouldn't touch him. And it's not because he's shorter than me.

Default Re: NFL Combine

Xavier Rhodes from Florida State ran a 4.41 unofficial at 6'1", 210 lbs (33 3/4" long arms). He also posted a 40.5" vertical. He is a man coverage guy that really does have the potential to be a lockdown cornerback. Deion commented that he seemed to kind of "chill" some in games when things weren't really coming at him or he wasn't being challenged, and I agree, so he will need to work on that. He is my favorite player from Florida State and has been a starter for three years. At home games, I would watch him ALOT when the defense was on the field. One of the problems he will have with scouts and coaches is that he didn't improve alot from his Sophomore to Junior year. He was basically the same player. He has the potential to be a lockdown corner, but he isn't quite there yet. Overall, I think he fits the Texans quite well but would need to be our first rounder if we were to get him.

Don't think he's resolved his off field issues -- personal opinion. Add to that he had all this off time to train/workout and he does 4 reps on the bench.

Default Re: NFL Combine

I posted this in the interview thread, but decided it needs to be here too. Hamilton advocates can get excited now.

More Houston interviewees per Walter Football.

Anthony Amos, WR, Middle Tennessee State (EW)
Will Davis#, DB, Utah State (SR)
Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas (COM)
Gerald Hodges, LB, Penn State (EW)
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (COM) (INT)
Eric Kush, OL, California PA (EW)
Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut (EW)
Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame (COM)
Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida (EW)

Link.

Edit: I just saw that these were from separate events, as indicated in the key below:

SR - Senior Bowl meeting.
EW - East-West Shrine meeting.
COM - Combine meeting.
INT - Interested.
VINT - Very Interested.
* - indicates more than one meeting.
# - indicates meeting set up outside of the 2013 Senior Bowl or the 2013 East-West Shrine Game

I think Darrius Slay just made himself a lot of money today:

Quote:
Slay posted an official time of 4.36 seconds in his second 40 run to finish with the fastest time on the day. Slay came to the combine slated as a middle-round selection, but his speedy performance should help him move up boards with the 2013 NFL Draft less than two months away.

I've got my eye on 2 OT's in the 3rd rd. Fragel and Quessenberry are both tough athletic RT's who would be perfect fits in the ZBS.
I really like Fragel...

I've always loved Florida State for some reason ever since I was a kid. Maybe because Warrick Dunn was such a badass. I hope they get back to winning titles soon. Jimbo seems like the guy to get them there.

If he gives up play calling duties to an offensive coordinator, perhaps. At this point, I do not like his play calling. He is one hell of a recruiter though.

Do you think he's anymore of a risk then D. Rodgers(WR)? They bother seem to be coming clean & taking responsibility for their actions.

In all honesty, my issue w/ Mathieu is that horrible 4 reps of 225lbs.

Don't know anything about him.

Personally, I lean more to Mr. McNair's thinking of avoiding problem children. Perhaps one on each side might give a team an edge, but I'd personally choose guys I'd want to be shoulder-to-shoulder with in a war. Cap is tight, rosters still seem pretty small, and this is business.

But, every young man has a chance to change his ways and how he behaves. I don't like the idea of dismissing people altogether. I've seen many men of all ages make fundamental changes in how they think and what they do. Gotta have hope.

I'm getting off topic -- looking forward to reviewing today's Combine participants in depth. Some good S prospects in there.
