Default Ryan Clady takes 1st step turning Pro

Ryan Clady has submitted paperwork to determine his draft Status-

http://www.idahostatesman.com/boises...ry/232616.html

I had projected him 7th while ESPN thinks 8th surely high enough this becomes a no-brainer. probably "out of reach" for the Texans to secure his services but then you just never know for sure about these things alot can change in four months

Hard to say. I have not put out my rankings as of yet (and wont for quite a while) but it depends on who else jumps in and the order of the picks. If the Texans lose out, they could be somewhere between 6-10. If they win a couple they could be around 12-16. It is hard to say what can happen now since there are several games left to be played.

If you chant "Clady, do an Okoye!" it might help.

Well the only reason they wouldn't take the guy if he fell that far is if something we don't know a bout is working behind the scenes. Probably be off the board by the time we pick. Posted on the other thread, Oher is considering going back now.

seems to me we might have to look for an LT much later in the draft.

Default Re: Ryan Clady takes 1st step turning Pro

It will be intersting to see how this LT class grades out. Clady is a talent, very athletic but would need to be coached up in the NFL to start day one @ LT. I think its very smart for him to come out early. Bose State system is not in the Pro Style & he's not learning against quality competition in the WAC. Sam Baker on the other hand is NFL ready coming from a Pro Style offense, starting LT four years @ USC against the best compeition in the country. no matter how talented thats a huge advantage over someone like Clady.

I'd prefer to have someone who could come in straight away and be an improvement over Salaam.

In saying that however Spencer handled himself pretty well as a rookie, even though he wasn't considered 'ready' if I remember correctly.

I have to watch the USC game again. My girlfriend called before she had to go to work and then I fell asleep because I still had this pounding behind my eyes at halftime.

I'm not sure if he was 100% recovered. got beat twice by LB stunts, no big deal otherwise dominated the line. USC rushed for a season high 344 on the ground & 289 in the air.

I think Baker solves the LT problem for 10 years. If he works hard in the weight room he could be an all-pro. He wasn't perfect today but I thought he played well enough to justify the 18th pick.

The thing that worries me about Clady is Daryn College also out of Boise .

He was a 2nd rd. pick in 2006 who's having a hard time playing guard .

Default Re: Ryan Clady takes 1st step turning Pro

In his bowl game it appeared to me that Clady needs to be taught/work on technique. He did not use his hands well, seemed to lack a punch. On a play he was beaten on, had he just put a hand on the guy early he would have had a chance to move the guy. This is coachable.

2nd, he appears to need to hit the weight room. Seemed soft and weak. This can said about 95% of the college OL prospects.

Yes he has quick feet, but he is raw. Very raw. And I do not see him fitting the Chiefs style of offense.

Of the GBN list I would be happy Clady, Baker, Boone, Otah with our 1st rounder. Williams would be worth a 3rd rounder.

Arguably MTSU's best offensive player, Dunbar is a two-time All-Sun Belt selection and among the Blue Raiders' best offensive linemen of the last decade.

Dunbar has started a team-high 30 consecutive games, with his streak beginning Nov. 5, 2005 in a win over Arkansas State.

Dunbar should be MTSU's best pro prospect of the departing class. He is 6-foot-5, 320 pounds and has a team-best 635-pound squat lift in the Blue Raiders' weight training program.
