kid with a big arm and better mobility than it appears.
Brandstarter made some very good throws and, at times, looked
like a future NFL starter. He also had moments where he
overthrew receivers and looked like he could be a coach-killer
(teasing with good tools, but not putting it all
together). Net-net, based on what I saw he is worth a shot
on day two of the draft as a player who could be a later
in with poor stats and little fanfare but was said to have
looked surprising good in practices. He followed that up
with a solid game. Hoyer showed quick feet, a quick
release and good accuracy.
was another player who was said to have played well in the
practices leading up to the game. In the game he was
uneven, but showed good mobility and made some nice
throws. He also had a couple of balls batted down at the
line of scrimmage.
was the best runner in the game. He has good size (listed
at 5'11", 220), was quick and made good, sharp cuts.
He ran tough between the tackles and had good bounce to the
outside. He has good feet and you have to love a back that
can move the chains to run out the clock at the end of a game
when the box is stacked. I am really looking forward to
this kids' workout.
looked fast, and was quick to the hole with a good burst. He
may not be an every-down back, but he could be a contributor who
makes big plays. Once again I need to see his times since
he did this in the Shrine Game, not the Senior Bowl.
had some nice runs and some not so nice runs. Overall, he
looked like a potential change-of-pace/third down back who can
catch, run to daylight and even showed some toughness running up
the middle. Sutton also looked good returning kicks.
this kid! He made plays both as a receiver and as a punt
returner. He made some tough catches, including going up
high to grab one (important since he is listed at
5'8"). Thomas gets open, makes catches and makes
plays. What's not to like.
another undersized receiver, showed he could get open and make
catches. One catch he made was one of the best grabs in
the game. He didn't look good during one punt return.
didn't have a lot of catchable balls, but he looked very good on
the few he caught. He went down low to make a nice catch
on one throw and got good YAC on another catch. Dillard
also looked good on a punt return.
the buzz begin. Pascoe could be a real sleeper in the
draft. He made an incredible catch downfield and showed he
could block. It's early in the process, but he could be a
day two steal who turns into a top starter. I need to do
more research, but I have a feeling ....
this for an unusual post? Johnson makes this list because
he looked very good blocking in the run game. I hope he's
at the Combine so I can see him catch.
had a very good game both in pass protection and blocking in the
East ran very well and more often than not, a good block by
Thomas was part of the reason for the good run. He played
a very, very good game.
was billed by McShay as one of the top players in the game and
he didn't disappoint. He was solid protecting against the
pass and blocking in the run game.
looked like a beast at times blocking in the run game.
showed good quickness. He played the run well and batted
down a pass.
was one of the few players to get any pressure on the
passer. He also made a couple of plays against the run.
looked good in spots against the run both on plays at him and in
played a good game. He was consistently tough versus the
was all over the field. He made tackles versus the run,
he made tackles on special teams, he made tackles against screen
passes. He made plays when run at, he made plays in
pursuit. He played a great game.
looked like a tough kid, blowing up plays and making good
tackles against the run.
looked good playing the run.
is a big kid with good strength. He was a force against
the run, especially in short yardage and goal line
situations. I will need to see his workout numbers before
I can assess how well he will transfer his skills to the NFL.
had the best game of all the defensive backs in the game.
He played the run very well, was good in pursuit, had a pass
defense, and made a tackle on special teams. He has the
look of a solid NFL strong safety; he is a sure tackler who is
quick to the ball.
had one shinning moment where he made a great play on the ball
to get an interception.
an unusual game of fairly nondescript defensive back play,
Fletcher had some good moments both against the run and the pass.
had some good moments in pass coverage.
made a 49-yard field goal with ease, and had a number of
kickoffs that reached the end zone. This kid has a
