He may even be better to bulk up and play at DT where height isn't as important and where he'd be very fast for the position. Since we need a DT and a DE, he'd be a good pickup and should be a 2nd or 3rd rounder. at DT he'd have time to adjusst ince we've got a decent 1/2 right now, and if he's instant impact or a good situational pass rusher, we've got a spot for immediate contribution there.
215? definitely 265 as posted above

He may only be 265 but have you ever seen the legs on that guy. I would agree that he needs to be around 285 to hold up in the NFL.

I agree. I don't think Tapp will be that great of a DE. He reminds a lot like David Pollack coming out of UGA last year. Could play end, but would be much better at the OLB position.

I really thought Corey Moore would have made it in the NFL. God that guy was fast. He and Tapp have got to be similar to Dwight Freeney's size, right?

Re: Darryl Tapp

You'd think people would figure out that Freeney spins EVERY TIME.

Re: Darryl Tapp

Figuring it out and stopping it are two different things.

in order to play OLB tapp would have to be a very fast DE, but he's about average speed. He's not very good in coverage either, so he'll either figure out DE or bulk up and move inside.

Re: Darryl Tapp

First off, Daryll Tapp is not a punk. Unless he has a lot of people fooled. Anybody following Big East/ACC football the last few years knows that Tapp is one of the quietest, hardest working players in the conference. Second, this year he was a finalist for the Lott trophy - an award based on personal character as well as excellence on the playing field. He also was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks award, which recognizes the top defensive lineman. Tapp has those intangible features we refer to as heart, determination, passion and pride. He wants to be the best. He pushes himself beyond what number crunching analyst convince themselves of what he should be capable of doing. Having said all that, I think coming out of college Corey Moore was better but since he got shot in the leg early in his career well never know what he was capable of.

I over heard a guy after VT's bowl game call Beemer and VT players a bunch punk's. So I asked him which college team he followed and he said UVA. Then I asked about the UVa player who choped block the BC player after the play was blown dead and only was hit with a one game suspension. He did not have much to say after that. Alot of people like to attack VT because they are jealous of how much they have achieved over the past ten years. As for Tapp I think he will make it in the NFL but he will need to add some pounds to take the every day beating. I'm intrested in seeing what happens with Nimo. He has the speed and talent but his size may be what holds him back. He just kins of reminds me of Rock.

Re: Darryl Tapp

The knock on a lot of guys coming into the NFL, especially at DE is that they are undersized. I think it's important to remember that these guys' bodies are still going through a physical maturation process. The weight will come in just a few short years. The point is knid of moot though because I don't think he'll be available in the second round. His merits are too noteworthy for teams to pass on him. I see him as a top 25 pick.

Perhaps I am biased as a UVa alum, but I agree. The DUI came BEFORE the Bowl game with Louisville and yet somehow they couldn't find it within themselves to kick him off the team before they won one more game with him.

I kind of place Tapp in the same category with Corey Moore (drafted by the Ravens, never replicated college success in NFL), but maybe that is because they both went to VA Tech. I have not seen him play enough, or heard enough from the draft "experts" to pass judgement on him, but remember that Dwight Freeny was also an undersized DE from the Big East (well I guess Tech is now in the ACC) who has done alright for himself. Of course, if Tapp goes out and runs a 4.4 a la Freeny he will be long gone by the time the Skins pick.

Biases aside, if you watched the VA Tech v. Miami and Tech v. Louisville games you HAVE to question the discipline of the team. They did not come across as very mature athletes or young men. Of course, this is a Redskins board so perhaps these are discussions for another venue.

Re: Darryl Tapp

remember we're closer to VA tech so we've seen more of them than other players, but i don't think tapp will go top 25 cause of his size and weight (there's other, better hgt/wgt guys with good production that'll be taken first). I think he's also closer to 4.8 than 4.4, but if he does run a 4.4 there's absolutely no way we get him. Judging from previous reports that's unlikely though.

first of all, it wasnt DUI, it was driving with revoked license. 2nd, they didnt get the court information until after the bowl game.
