Second to last pick
Do we need a tackle at all? Couldn't we at least take a chance on whatever NT is left?
Who? I gotta get off computer for a while. I'll check on our superstar to be selected next--later.
Never know when Duane's going to overtrain again...
Actually, depending on the CBA rules, we might end up losing Rashad Butler. This isn't a bad pick.
If we lose Butler I like the pick. If not, I would have preferred a different position. I am neutral on this pick as well.
No impression. Filling up the depth chart.
As a 7th rounder... I like the pick. If for nothing more than depth at OT.
Will most likely start off on practice squad as a project. Not a bad pick if he works out. Appears to be an athletic big man but very RAW.
Profootball weekly report:
Positives: Very good straight-line speed can lock on and steer defenders out of the hole. Can anchor and hold ground in pass protection. Appeared athletic moving through positional drills at the Combine. Works hard, plays hard and is motivated to succeed.
Negatives: Straight-linish and tight-hipped is not quick into blocks and struggles adjusting to movement. Can be outmaneuvered on the second level. Does not strike with authority in his hands. Can do a better job sustaining. Has faced marginal competition and is not battle-tested. Is raw and still learning the game.
Summary: Raw, junior-college transfer with intriguing athletic ability to be groomed as a developmental zone blocker.
NFL projection: Late draftable pick.
man i wanted mr irrelevant. those guys are fun to watch to see how they actually do.
I remember drafting him in the mock draft, here is some more info on the guy:
I dont understand this post? We still have Mr. Irrelevant, in approximately 35 picks.
oh ok u meant second to last pick we get my bad, i quit watching the draft after the 3rd round, my bad. hey atleast we get one more pick, my fav pick at that
Looks like good value, and insurance if Butler goes, or Brown goes down.
**Best Stephen A. Smith impression** - HOWEVA!
Would have liked Deunta Williams or DeAndre McDaniel to help out at safety.
I'm at work is he a tackle or guard. I think it's good because
Roller skates Eric Winston sucks now. I hope he losses his Job to this kid
Dude only did 24 reps on the bench press. Kinda weak. Probably camp fodder.
He's listed as a tackle.
Here is a video about Newton. VIDEO
As an aside, look at 55-57 seconds on the video and see if anything bothers you.
Negatives remind me of Winston.
