It has been a strange class. It is really hard to differentiate this group. Studied a lot from the 30000 ft level and two handfuls of players in depth. Lots of factors make this one difficult. The Gil Brandt piece sums it up well. You gave 13 to 17 true first round guys and then 50 to 60 evenly bunched.
Who don’t I like… Key I wouldn’t have him on my board, Harold Landry he’s too small watch ND film tells the story, Vita Vea he is run stopping 2 down player can’t gain weight and be effective already gasses , and Hernandez he’s not Mike Iupati.
Who do I like…Marcus Davenport I don’t think they will draft him though, Fitzpatrick, James they would have to move up for either of these guys and use them creatively, Nelson they can’t get high enough to draft him, the ND tackle too, Edmonds, R. Smith could turn out to be the Best player of the defensive class.
Go back for the Vander Esch fans and watch the Virginia tape. Watch the ND tape of both Lorenzo Carter from Georgia and Harold Landry BC. Finally Pete at the GBPG has done a couple of great pieces recently on Edge and DB, freaks me out something is out of whack as hold freaking similar opinions to the NFC scouts he is talking to. Just doesn’t happen much…Harold Landry is not Vic Beasley…
