Draft'r'us




 I just have to say with it being this early in the draft talk its hard to find analysis of players. So the next best thing I went out and found tapes of big hits or game changing abilities and if I couldn't find those  I will just post pictures. If anyone has any good sites for downloading chiefs game or any football games that would be much appreciated. Two birds at once

PS To save space of a lot of video I linked them

Now to the jump:

Round 1 | Taylor Mays | USC
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 230 | Position:SS

Taylor mays video
I know a lot of you are sold on eric berry but my feelings on him is he will be a great CB not saftey and right now we need safeties not cornerbacks.

(ww.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1117496)

  • Read & React: Good key-and-diagnose skills. Aggressive in run support, but disciplined and rarely out of position. Understands his role as the last line of defense and takes good angles to minimize big gains by opponents.
  • Man Coverage: Faster in a straight line than he is quick in a short area. Struggles laterally and loses a step in his transition due to tight hips. Rare recovery speed and such a rangy defender he can blanket most deep receivers.
  • Zone Coverage: Controlled aggression in coverage makes him well suited play in a zone scheme. Sees the action and reacts quickly. Loses a step in transition, but accelerates smoothly. Good change-of-direction skills. Reliable open-field tackler.
  • Closing/Recovery: Rare straight-line speed for a man his size. Reads the action quickly and has great burst to close. Times his leaps well and uses his long arms to bat away passes. Would rather go for the big hit than compete for the ball. Has just four career interceptions -- three as a freshman -- despite 38 career starts.
  • Run Support: Has played deep in a zone scheme in the past, but flashes outstanding ability in run support. Good key-and-diagnose skills. Can elude blocks, but is willing to take them on and can discard due to his upper-body strength and long arms. Big hitter who runs downhill toward the line of scrimmage.
  • Tackling: Reliable open-field tackler. Breaks down well to make the secure stop. Explosive hitter who loves to intimidate opponents. Lowers his shoulder into the ballcarrier and can separate the football from the man. Leads with his shoulder on many of his biggest hits, failing to wrap up securely.
  • Intangibles: Physically imposing athlete with good overall musculature. Freakish combination of size and straight-line speed. Carroll has publicly characterized Mays as USC's fastest player; has reportedly timed in the 4.2s at 230 pounds. Good bloodlines. Father, Stafford Mays, was a defensive lineman in the NFL (St. Louis Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings) from 1980-1988.

Round 2 | T.J. Ward | Oregon
Height: 5-11 | Weight: 201 | Position:FS

ward 1, ward 2, ward 3, ward4
The biggest surprise here was not finding analyst on him. I could find some comments saying he was out of position a couple times but he is getting better at that what I have to say watch his video his hits are remarkable.

Round 2  |  J.D. Walton | Baylor
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 305 | Position:C  unless Stefen Wisniewski penn state 6'3 302 comes out

(http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1114124)

  • Pass blocking: Quick set after the snap, getting hands into the tackle's jersey. Works hard to keep contact with nose tackle, maintaining his anchor against bigger, stronger defenders. Keeps his feet moving and arms punching to assist on double-teams. Adept on shotgun (which Baylor uses often) and direct snaps. Will lean into his man, making him lose his balance and body control on occasion.
  • Run blocking: Short arms make it difficult to sustain against defensive tackles with above-average length. Strong on double-teams, getting leverage to maintain big hole/passing lane inside. Works hard throughout the play, and agitates his defender even when on the ground. Gets low in goal-line and short-yardage situations to take out his man.
  • Pulling/trapping: Best in close quarters. Adequate footwork to get the correct angles when on the move. Not overly quick or smooth as a runner, his feet get caught up in trash inside. Lacks agility to adjust to oncoming defenders, although he manages to stop them, anyway, using strength and will.
  • Initial Quickness: Good pop off the snap when run blocking and in pass pro, though Baylor doesn't drive block very often. Adjusts to late line shifts, uses angles to his advantage. Must improve his ability to cut block on quick throws.
  • Downfield: Not especially agile at the second level. Effective at taking out inside-out defenders, however, by using any available part of his body. Will usually find a second man after coming off a double but won't dominate him. Plays through the whistle, and will take out a man if he's not playing aware.
  • Intangibles: Typical mauler inside, giving everything he has on every play. Leader of the offensive line. Just the type of tough, intelligent, durable pivot man NFL teams like.

Round 3 | Montario Hardesty | Tennessee
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 212 | Position:RB

hardesty 1, hardesty 2

(http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=57298&draftyear=2010&genpos=RB)

  • Paced 2008 Vols with six touchdowns, all rushing ... Second on team with 76 rushing attempts ...

Round 4 | D’Anthony Smith | Louisiana tech
Height: 6-2 | Weight: 300 | Position:DT
smith 1, Go to the 1:41 mark on the next one smith 2

(http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1125777)

  • Pass rush: Good initial quickness to pressure the pocket, but lacks a variety of pass-rush moves and relies predominately on his bull rush. Cerebral defender who keeps his head on a swivel and reacts well to the screen and draw plays. Keeps his eyes on the quarterback and does a nice job of getting his hands up in the air to deflect passes when he can't get pressure.
  • Run defense: Short, stumpy defender who plays with good pad level and leg drive to hold up in the running game. Active feet and good lateral agility to slide down the line and make the tackle at or near the line of scrimmage.
  • Explosion: Good initial quickness off the snap. Flashes the burst to attack gaps and collapse the pocket from the interior. Violent hands to disengage from blocks. Flashes some pop as a tackler. Will leap at the ballcarrier and knock them violently into the ground.
  • Strength: Good leg drive and use of leverage for the bull rush. Good upper-body strength to violently rip away from blocks.
  • Tackling: Recognizes the cutback and has the flexibility and balance to protect his knees by sprawling and pushing off his hands to get past the blocker. Good strength to slide off blocks and make the tackle as backs run by. Shows some lateral agility and balance to break down in close quarters.
  • Intangibles: Remains a work in progress. Has been able to get by with just his size and athletic ability at this level. Doesn't play with the nastiness you'd expect from a defensive tackle. Might lack the intensity and self motivation to maximize his talent. Experienced in the 4-3 (under-tackle) and as the nose in a three-man front when the Bulldogs went to nickel. Durable. Started 32 consecutive games entering 2009. Ascending talent with upside worthy of development.

Round 5 | Jared Veldheer | Hillsdale 
Height: 6-8 | Weight: 321| Postion: OT

 

veldheer

  • Highly athletic, big-bodied tackle that has started all 33 games of his career. Very raw in pass and run blocking technique but has ideal physical tools to work with. Has adequate footwork but lacks foot quickness as he struggles with inside speed rush. Bends very well and shows adequate use of the hands. Could move onto the draft board with improvement in footwork, ability to handle the speed rush, and improved technique.

Round 5 | Sergio Render | Virginia tech
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 319 | Position:OG
5:43 number 70 render

(http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/profile_display.cfm?prospect_id=2162)

  • Off-season shoulder surgery has not slowed down Sergio Render. Ever since he stepped foot on Virginia Tech's campus, Render has been starting at one of the offensive guard spots. During his freshman campaign he earned the starting right guard job and he has never given it up, although he has moved to the left guard spot for his senior season.Redshirted as a true freshman.
  • Heading into the 2009 season Render was considered by most as the nation's top offensive guard. His size and versatility are a big bonus.
  • At 6-3 and 319 pounds, Render is a big guard who has turned into a great leader on the line. The Hokies had some questions about their ground game heading into the 2009 season after projected starter Darren Evans went down with an ACL injury. All the Hokies had to turn to were inexperienced players. Redshirt freshman Ryan Williams is easily the Atlantic Coast Conference's top rusher six weeks into the 2009 season and Williams has Render to largely thank for that success

But his potential as you can see in the next links is amazing. Just get his anger under control this would be a shock if he didn't get drafted.
