Kid is a flat out stud! So is Ray Graham and David Bass looks impressive too. Watch the game Saturday on NFL Network. I say East team wins by 2 TDs

Keith Elias + Latimer from the Program = Mike Catapano

"There’s a ton of coaching going on with the DL group and some of these guys are really responding in drill work. They too are a part of why the offenses are struggling so much. I have been mightily impressed by the attitudes and work ethic of two small school players #91/DAVID BASS/Missouri Western State & #77/MIKE CAPATANO/Princeton. CAPATANO is hustling his butt off and getting results from his effort. What has caught my eye with him is a reverse spin move to the inside on his pass-rush technique. That’s something you don’t see real often except in the most accomplished of pass rush specialists such as a DWIGHT FREENEY. CAPATANO has already made a believer out of me in two days with his size, strength, attitude and skills. This kid should get Drafted by Round 4 and has eventual starting potential"

Boston Globe and Bleacher Report reporting on Mike Catapano proving to scouts he has makings of NFL starter. Good value pick here guys....alot of talk about him and this kid David Bass. Small school guys who are schooling FBS guys in practice. The angle on Catapano being a local guy with childhood dream of playing for the Jets one day is intriguing. Not sold on this year's top round 1 type pass rushers....getting this kid in rounds 4 or 5 might not be such a bad idea. Boston Globe is reporting on him. lets get him before the Pats get him and use him against us. Also this Ray Graham guy sounds interesting

There's good in there. A&M does happen to own the two best offensive tackles in college football.

He did fill out the line with a sack, a TFL, a hurry, a PD, and three tackles.

yeah but alot of time he just stops rushing. what's that about? JMO if Barkavious Mingo was named Joe Smith we wouldn't hear as much about him. Sam Montgomery has more career sacks, 20 pounds heavier and goes higher, again that's JMO. (btw how good does Eric Reid look in these clips? easy late 1st rounder)

Mingo looks more like a late 1/early 2 to me. nothing wrong with targeting him on the flippity flop. 9 is too high. Jarvis Jones has a trick back but at least he dominated.

I like Jarvis Jones but for some reason my biggest thought watching this game is "wow, Eddie Lacy is a ****ing beast!!!"

By the way...I hate to say I told ya so but....

According to Russ Lande of the National Football Post: Out of the top 5 who raised their draft stock so far in the practice evaluations, out of the 100 or so players there Princeton's Mike Catapano is numero uno


1. Mike Catapano, DE, Princeton (6033, 270 and 4.85): "After dominating the Ivy League, Catapano came to Tampa needing to prove he could be as productive against better competition and he definitely did that. Quick off the ball, Catapano displayed strong and aggressive use of hands to jolt and defeat pass blocks with surprising ease. Able to consistently beat the offensive tackle around the corner and inside allowed him to regularly pressure the quarterback in every drill. Not only productive rushing the passer, his ability to defeat run blocks allowed him to make plays against the run at him and away. His strong week of practice has put Catapano in position to be a third round pick if he continues to perform well the rest of the spring."

http://www.nationalf...-Practices.html

So can we all take a look at him Sat at 4pm? If he gets a sack or two maybe we should consider convincing our team to give a hometown boy with a childhood dream a shot.

Hes a predator and we need one

If this guy is flying up draft boards like this, I think it becomes less and less likely that he'll be a Jet - especially if the Jets take a pass rusher in the first round. I could see them taking a second one later in the draft, but probably not as high as the third round. Too many other holes on the roster.

The other potential question with Catapano in particular is will he be able to make the transition to OLB? The Jets need pass rush help, but -full time- they're in serious need of OLB help, and you'd really hope to fill both those needs at once.

Now it's entirely possible that new GM won't really take Rex's defense under consideration, and just go after the best players at every pick. It's a strategy I prefer, and maybe the best chance for this kid to fulfill his sad childhood dream to become a NYJ.

it's so obvious that the Jets want a pass rusher in the 1st round but my question is if Demontre, Jarvis Jones, and either Werner or Montgomery are gone by 9, do the Jets take the 4th best pass rusher in the top 10? The WR or OG value is better (and the offense is in terrible shape). I'd be cool with Keenan Allen or Chance Warmack instead. And that leaves the door open for pass rushers later.

the key to this is how many quarterbacks go before 9. It might be 2, but it also might be 0. this question about geno smith at 1 is a good one. For example he passed on the Senior Bowl where the Chiefs coach one of the teams. Would think he'd want to at least show up for a day to show off for Andy reid and company.

I like the idea of Chance Warmack at #9 ....everything starts up front

Also a thought is if Catapano's current projections hold up and we have too many other needs to fill with our 3rd round pick (and i think we gave our 4th for Tebow no?) and he isn't around by 5th, 6th round what about David Bass if he is still around? Seems both of these guys have a knack for getting the QB. Also I do like Jarvis Jones..if he falls to #9 it might make sense to grab him. We need something

We shouldn't let the Dolphins get this guy. Its bad luck and will come back to haunt us. I have read a lot of stuff on this kid and have done research...he's legit. Both on the season and last week. (Catapano killed it at EW Shrine Practice). If not then tell me who is worth a 1st round pick?....Sorry but not overly impressed with anyone at Senior Bowl. Datone Jones looks good but thats about it. No pass rusher i see worth a 1st round pick. Anybody been watching Senior Bowl Practice? If you think I'm wrong then tell me who stands out and is worth a 1st round pick. This kid in the 3rd or possibly 4th is a better value.

He is however being recruited as a 4-3 DE but this guy gets after the QB and in serious way....Jarad Allen is a 4-3 DE but if we had a chance to get him why wouldn't we? Allen played in Shrine game and went in later rounds. Just saying. Besides Jarvis Jones or Moore from TA&M) I'm not all that impressed with the top pass rushing LBs this year. and to take one at #9 who's name isn't Jarvis Jones or Domontre Moore will be a mistake in my opinion. If those 2 aren't left at #9 then we should use for another need. I'm not into 1st round draft picks on DE or LB who can't get more than 6 sacks a year. Have picked too many of those. Who was the last pass rusher we had who had 10 sacks? Well this kid had 12 sacks in only 10 games this year. Something to consider.

I agree with this....I would say Jones and Moore are the only pass rushers worth a top 10 pick. What do you think of Terrance Williams as a possible #9 pick? Think he could still be there in 2nd round?
