He still can't read a defense. I expect him to be a UDFA and bounce around 90 man rosters for a few years.

With that said, your post above is absolutely correct. This guy is the poster child for why you don't overrate the importance of workouts.
Gil Bryant says this is another one of "his" guys, but he's beginning to lose credibility with me when his relationships with these guys are revealed. Same when it was revealed Kiper was regularly speaking with/consulting Jimmy Clausen.

Quote:
Two years ago, when St. Louis owned the second overall pick in the draft, it was able to convince Washington to give up that year’s No. 6 overall pick, that year’s No. 39 overall pick, and Washington’s 2013 and 2014 first-round picks. That 2014 first-round pick turned out to give the Rams the No. 2 overall pick again this year, and St. Louis would love to get another package of picks in another trade.
Quote:
But it’s not going to happen. Rams coach Jeff Fisher acknowledged that if the Rams do trade down, no team is going to give up anything close to what the Rams got in that 2014 trade because there’s no prospect as alluring as Robert Griffin III.

Overall it's becoming more and more clear that if the Texans stay in the #1 spot the selection will be a defensive player. It's looking increasingly unlikely that a QB will go with the #1 pick. -- Adam Schefter on ESPN

Hope its Mack if they pull the trigger on a defensive player.

Chris Trapasso ‏@ChrisTrapasso

Though he's under 6'4", he has very long arms. Tough to slot him in NFL. IMO, he can play LT or RT but stud OG potential. Think Jahri Evans.

Thomas' pass pro wasn't outstanding. He waits for rushers to get into his body & can whiff though he wins a decent amount of edge battles.

He's a knee bender who wins with leverage/pure strength at POA & is spatially aware & athletic enough to typically hit 2nd-level targets.

This might already be out there, but Clemson's Brandon Thomas is a downright mauler vs. the run. Technically sound too.
Quote:
That'd work. MT @NFLDraftTracker: I'd slot him as ILB hammer in a 3-4. Not 250+ type but he plays w/ that kind of power, can drop into zones

I think Zumwalt's more of a pure MLB in the NFL than a WLB. He tracks crossers, gets good depth in coverage and can run with *some* TEs.

He can be slow to read/react & he plays upright. Plus he's always looking for the huge hit, but there's a lot of Kiko Alonso to his game.

...Jordan Zumwalt is a bully at 6'4" and around 235. Sheds well. Dropped in coverage often. Downhill wrecking ball with good range.

Couple notes on a few prospects from my film-watching session today...

Seantrel Henderson allegedly quit his Pro Day today halfway through the workout. No explanation as of why just yet.

Still though, this guy has been an absolute headcase since high school and is unlikely to do anything at the next level. People will still love him for his measureables though and he's still sure to get drafted.

Anyone who states they know where the texans are leaning is lying. Even scheffter whom is really accurate don't have a clue. All u have to do is remember the 06 draft.

Yikes. I wonder if God told him that he didn't need to finish the workout like that guy at the combine.

We could draft Clowney, McCullers, Henderson, Archer as the all-measurables draft.

Any other outliers we need to include?

There's nothing wrong with measureables when guys produce. Clowney and Archer produced in college. It's when guys don't produce when you need to check yourself.

Quote:
“If we decide to draft this guy, we’re not just going to play him at one position,” head coach Bill O’Brien told fans and suite holders. “We may start him off at one position but use him in a lot of different ways. He’s a unique talent but again, that’s if we draft him.” This ‘if’ seems to be a matter of internal debate, as word out of Houston seems to suggest that they’re trying to trade down.

Source: Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas tore his ACL during a private workout last week with the New Orleans Saints

Quote:
Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a private workout last week with the New Orleans Saints, according to a league source.

Thomas will undergo surgery soon to repair the damage following a serious knee injury a month out from the NFL draft.

Thomas excelled during the Senior Bowl, drawing praise from NFL scouts at his technique and aggressiveness as he finished off blocks and displayed a nasty streak.

Thomas was drawing second-round and third-round grades from draft analysts prior to the injury and was regarded as a rising draft prospect.

Thomas is still expected to do well in the draft, but obviously the timing of the injury will affect his draft stock.
