Swancutt is around 260, and he shared Pac 10 defenisve player of the year honors with Shaun Cody of USC. When you look at his size you'd think he'd be a perfect OLB in a 3-4. An undersized DE who's got great pass rushing abilities. However, to be a 3-4 OLB you need the abililty to cover TEs, RBs, etc from time to time. Since he didn't play LB any during the game its tough to judge whether or not he'd be a good OLB. I haven't seen enough of him at OSU to make a determination just yet, but once he hits the combines we'll have a better idea of his speed and agility.

1) David Baas: I had some questions on this guy coming into today's game. He didn't have an impressive Shrine Game, so it was great seeing this guy get another chance. Baas looked very good, he always seem to overpower his guy at the line. Looked good in pass coverage as well--He seemed to continue his block what ever the DT did, whether is be bull-rushing, spinning, ripping, swimming, he was able to handle it. Also did a great job of getting out and blocking on screens. One problem though was that for the last 6 minutes of the 1st Half he played against a Bama DT that was a career back-up.

2) Alex Holmes: This guy came in as the #2 TE in this draft, and made a strong case to come in and possibly be a late 1st round pick. He runs great routes, is fast coming off the line, has some prutty good hands and was a target for the North QB all game. I didn't see him run block much, which I wanted to see.

3) Marcus Spears: When I first saw Spears I thought naw this guy can be that skinny, but boy that kid is a beast. He is very fast coming off the outside and has a motor for either finding the QB or the RB. Only thing I saw wrong was he was a little over agressive, he missed a sack on one play because he was TOO fast coming off the edge, and took a bad angle on a running play that cost the South an extra 5 yards.

Some other guys who turned heads but we won't have to worry about: Charlie Frye, Jason Campbell, Swancutt (could this guy play DE in the 3-4? Is a small DT.......might be a "tweener") Darren Sproles (he is a 4th round pick, maybe a KR for us?) Mike Nugent: I want Nugent to be a Texan, I like this kid a lot and could be the next Vinateri. DRAFT HIM NOW.
I hope you meant Alex smith from stanford...Alex Holmes from USC is slow and short even though he has decents hands. Smith is closer to the modern pass catching TE.

Holmes had a pretty good game receiving, but I don't think he was the 2nd rated TE available in the draft. At least he wasn't the 2nd rated TE on any position ranking I've seen. Most have Smith, Cross, and Dreesen ahead of him. I still wouldn't mind seeing the Texans get him with one of their 2nd day picks, but that would likely mean Joppru isn't progressing well in his recovery.

spears has really imporved his stock this week. he had a slow start but really came alive at the end of the year. i don't know how many times he came up with a big sack at the end of the game when the game was on the line. kiper said that he should be a early first rounder (1-15) after this week, so maybe if we do go d-line then i think he is our man. he is around 294 and reports are that he doesn't have the much fat on him, so he probably could a few pounds if he had to. also gruden tried him at lb this week and he was suppose to play basketball at LSU, so that just shows you what kind of althete he is.

I hope he hasn't improved it too much, but we might have to hustle to get him @ 13 in the first round. I'm not saying he's the second coming of Julius Peppers, but for a 290 pounder guy who is so fit ( obviously very low on body fat), quick and just very athletic, the comparison comes to mind. And if he is in fact > 290, he is big enough and athletic enough to play DT or DE in
the NFL. Weak draft including weak for defensive lineman this year, he may
vanish from the Board very quickly once the draft begins in April.

if thats true than that will leave another good defensive player for us, so if he is gone than it isn't that big of a deal.

The Cowboys have tiny LBs. Can they go to 3-4 with tiny LBs ? They need alot to bad we have their 3rd round pick. I'd give it back for Roy Williams.

Logically, a team converting from 4-3 to 3-4 would need LBs and not DLineman, and vice versa.
