  1. After watching the highlight vid, i think he'd be a BEAST in our D!
  2. I think both these guys would be great in our secondary... CB - Phillip Gaines FS - Terrance Brooks (please mute, song is terrible)
  3. Can Bailey or Bucannon play FS? from what i've read, they're both listed as SS. Thought we needed more FS help? Love the rest of the picks though!
  4. Wouldnt be mad at all if the draft goes this way for us. I especially love the first 3 picks!
  5. Nice late round prospect. I'd love for us to grab him with one of our late round picks. Paired with Demario Davis, they'd make a hell of a tandem!
  6. A 5th & three 6th round picks...hopefully we'll be able to use these to either trade up or draft some late round gems! Hope the scouting dept. is doing their due dilligence
  7. Interesting stuff from Kristian Dyer at the Metro: “The Jets have been doing their due diligence on the pick and seem very open to moving out of No. 9,” a league source with knowledge of the situation told Metro. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to comment on personnel situations. “There doesn’t seem to be anyone at that spot in the draft who can necessarily help them any more than later in the round. This isn’t a top-heavy draft, especially in the first round, but it is relatively deep. The Jets seem open to the idea of moving out.”
  8. He looks good on tape, could add about 5 - 10lbs. though. But I wouldn't mind taking him in the 3rd or 4th. And he blew up the combine...http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1544657-breaking-down-the-combines-most-explosive-linebacker-jamie-collins
  9. Overview Originally, the athletic Collins decided to sign with Auburn, but changed his mind to stay in his home state after unknown quantity Gene Chizik took over as the Tigers’ head coach in December 2008. Even though he missed out on the 2010 BCS championship season because of that decision, his career with the Golden Eagles predicts a NFL future in the path of former lean Southern Miss linebackers Michael Boley and Gerald McRath. Collins was a high school quarterback who led his team to back-to-back state championship games in his sophomore (when his Franklin County (Miss.) squad got the win) and junior seasons. After arriving in Hattiesburg, coaches’ conversion of Collins paid immediate dividends; playing as a reserve in all 13 games, he accumulated 48 tackles (three for loss, two sacks). During his sophomore year, he moved from safety to linebacker due to a mid-season injury. He started seven games, playing in every contest, garnering honorable mention All-Conference USA honors with 76 tackles (three for loss, 2.5 sacks), intercepting two passes and breaking up two others. He was again put on the honorable mention squad for his work starting all 14 games in 2011, in which he totaled 98 tackles (19.5 for loss), 6.5 sacks, and eight pass break-ups. As a senior, Collins tallied 92 tackles (20 for loss), 10 sacks, four forced fumbles, and five passes broken up. This excellent senior year earned him first-team All-Conference USA honors. Analysis Strengths Presents a long, lean frame that NFL teams look for in a stand-up pass rusher. Quick feet and long strides help him close on quarterbacks, move down the line to crash on runs, as well as give him the short-area agility to move in coverage with slot receivers for short periods despite his height and length. Short area quickness, and the ability to redirect in an instant. Power hands at times. Capable of shedding in either direction to contain or fill a gap. Knows to knock receivers at the line and crossers off their routes with his strong arm extension. Has the length to wrap up ballcarriers trying to avoid him in the backfield, as well as grab backs running away from him. Weaknesses Lacks sand in his pants and upper-body strength to be an every-down defensive end against NFL tackles, and gets consistently pushed back by double teams. Inconsistent coming off the snap quickly, at times looking like he can beat tackles with a strong first step but being among the last moving on other plays. Motor runs cold, don't pursue plays well. Loses track off his position in zone coverage. Can be eluded in space by quicker ballcarriers or in the backfield by mobile quarterbacks. Must speed up his hands to win battles against pro linemen, slow to disengage. NFL Comparison Clark Haggans Bottom Line A tall lean end/linebacker hybrid for Southern Miss, Collins racked up 20 tackles for loss (and 10 sacks) for the Golden Eagles during his first-team All-Conference USA senior season. Though he’s not an elite pass rush talent and is still growing into his frame, he presents scouts with surprising agility for his size and the length to be an effective 3-4 ‘backer capable of doing a bit of everything, with untapped potential as a mid-round pick.
  10. Overview As five-star outside linebacker recruit, Jenkins was first-team all-state in Maryland. Highly sought after, Jenkins chose Florida over Notre Dame, Penn State, USC and Stanford. Jenkins was named the Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year in both 2007 and 2008. As a senior, he traveled to Los Angeles as one of five national finalists for the Watkins Award, awarded annually to the “Premier African-American Male Scholar Athlete”. Jenkins took a redshirt in his first year in 2009, as he only appeared in two games and made just two tackles. In 2010, Jenkins appeared in all 13 games, and registered 11 starts. He spent time at middle linebacker and weak-side linebacker. On the season, he totaled 76 tackles (4.5 for loss), two sacks, and one interception. In 2011, Jenkins started 12 games (he missed one due to injury). He recorded 75 tackles (6 for loss), two sacks, six pass breakups, and one interception, which he returned for a touchdown. Jenkins dealt with injuries his redshirt junior season, which limited him to just nine games. His medical issues included a lingering tweaked hamstring, and surgeries on his right foot and hand. Jenkins had 29 tackles (5 for loss), two sacks, one interception, and one punt block. Analysis Strengths Showcases good speed, moves well from sideline to sideline. Good burst. Athletic. Works well in pursit, able to track ball carriers and then make tackles. Possessing good blitzing ability. Best trait is his ability to cover. Can run with backs and tight ends. Easily flips hips, and turns his head to find the football. Weaknesses Does not possess ideal size or length. Not very strong at the point. Will get latched onto blockers when the get inside his frame. Needs to use his hands better and be more aggressive in shedding blocks. Medical concerns. NFL Comparison Nick Roach Bottom Line When healthy, Jenkins is a dynamic athlete who possesses great value with his ability to cover. However, he's had a hard time staying healthy, and struggles when run at
  11. Overview Sometimes it takes until a player’s senior season before he gets a chance to realize his potential -- as McCray will tell you. A four-star prospect from Ocala, Florida, he had three tackles in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl after putting up over 200 tackles and 20 sacks in his junior and senior seasons in high school. But it took until his senior year to become a full-time starter, mostly due to an injury to talented sophomore Ronald Powell, before he could be healthy enough to saty on the field. Despite this delay, scouts have seen enough of his raw size and athleticism to consider him a potential contributor at the next level. McCray played in eight games on special teams in 2008, making five tackles on the season. He only played three games the following year, again being credited with five stops as a reserve before receiving a medical redshirt. McCray got in 10 games as a reserve in 2010 (six tackles, one for loss) and nine in 2011 (five starts, 24 tackles, 7.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks, three pass break-ups), but missed seven games over those two seasons due to shoulder and ankle maladies. As a senior, McCray recorded 25 tackles (4.5 for loss), three sacks, and an interception. Analysis Strengths Versatile defender who rushes the passer from either side of the line, with his hand down or standing up. Solid get-off from a hand-down position, can stay low and has excellent flexibility to turn the corner, length to wrap up quarterbacks and separate the ball on impact. Also wins B-gap by coming off low and strong. Uses his length to get leverage when bull-rushing or facing double teams on the edge despite his slight build. Powerful hands that result in a jolt on contact. Works hard through blocks to reach the quarterback if the ball stays in the pocket. Hustles to chase plays across the line and downfield. Stays on his feet through cut blocks, uses his hands to keep balance. Agile enough to drop into a zone. Shows hands for the easy interception. Weaknesses Has an injury history, also rotated out of games regularly; must prove stamina to be an every-down player. Lean defender who can be knocked off his path as a pass rusher by a strong punch. Relies on outside rush too often, needs counter moves to take advantage of inside lane. Struggles to get off blocks when leaning into his man on the edge. Must prove he has the agility and bend to move with receivers outside in coverage. NFL Comparison Bryan Thomas Bottom Line One particular game of note for McCray this season came against Texas A&M and Luke Joeckel, where McCray's powerful hands and strength gave Joeckel noticable issues. McCray has missed nearly two seasons of games due to injuries. But when healthy, the former four-star high school recruit flashes enough strength, length and athleticism to be a mid-round pick capable of contributing as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 system.
  12. IMO there aren't that any Top 10 "impact" offense players that will be available to us when we pick, other than Joeckel and he'll be long gone. Everyone else is a Top 20 or later. I can't see us reaching for a QB or RB with our pick, nor should we. Without a doubt I think we go defense and if not then trade down, but I do like Ansah, if he can drop 10 lbs. with his athleticism and Rex's coaching, I think we have a dominant presence at OLB.
