Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

INDIANAPOLIS -- As the NFL Combine enters its final day, the top prospects from the defensive side of the ball took to the RCA Dome. There was plenty of buzz about some exciting performances while others were not as fortunate.

Risers
Gaines Adams/DE/Clemson: Of all the defensive linemen who took to the field Monday morning, Adams stole the show. Running both 40s in the low 4.7-second range, Adams displayed his unlimited athleticism for scouts. Not only did Adams stand out during the defensive line drills, but he also looked great when running through a battery of linebacker drills. Adams presently ranks as the No. 1 defender in the draft.

STOCK GOING UP.

Sliders
Alan Branch/DT/Michigan: Branch ran relatively well in the 40, clocking under 5.10-seconds after weighing in at 324 pounds. He looked sluggish and sloppy during the drilling portion of the workout leading many to believe he is in poor shape.

STOCK GOING DOWN.

Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

If anyone projected to go in the 1st round moves up or down more than 5 spots because of the Combine, then the scouts are dumber than I thought.

Not sure about 5 spots ? However, I could easily see Branch going past #10 Anderson #7,8? Adams might go before we're up to the plate, 5th or better.

If Adams goes higher than 5, I'll be elated. That would mean that either Russell, Thomas, Johnson, or Peterson would be left when we pick. That means trade bait.

that doesnt make any sense cause he got 33 reps on the bench and he was great in the drills for his size and will be a top 10 pick so what are you talking about?

That's an interesting comment because Dwayne Bowe who was projected to be a mid first round pick, now he might have fallen out of the first round. That's kind of insane to me. He shows up all season and then runs a mediocre 40 time and his play means very little. Whatever.

Seriously, that's pretty lame if you ask me. The combine and sick fascinations with 40-times seems to explain why guys like Trung Canidate are picked in the 1st round.

What part don't you understand? The scouts were there you weren't. Pretty clear what I'm talking about....... It will be a total suprise if Branch makes it inside the top 10.

Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

I have a gut feeling that they need to stay away from Adams. I would rather sign Branch. Signing Branch would clog up the middle immediately and I think that Grif would have a huge year. Plus, the description of Branch is that he can play some D-end as well. Think about that. A bull rush from a 6-5 330 pounder!

I agree. I hate the fact that I'm falling for the Combine hype machine. Adams is getting rave reviews, Branch isn't. I have (had?) my heart set on Branch but, man, it looks like he has some sort of motivational issues. Maybe he's just a laid back kinda guy who knows when the time is right to put it all on the table.

you have got to be kidding what alan branch were you watching and i wasnt there but i saw it so to say you would be suprised to see him make it into the top 10 is kinda shocking cause he could easily go number 5 to the cards before we even get a chance to pick him

Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

This is the one I was watching, the same one the scouts and REDSKINS COACHING staff witnessed, the STAND out DE of the day:
Gaines Adams/DE/Clemson: Of all the defensive linemen who took to the field Monday morning, Adams stole the show. Running both 40s in the low 4.7-second range, Adams displayed his unlimited athleticism for scouts. Not only did Adams stand out during the defensive line drills, but he also looked great when running through a battery of linebacker drills. Adams presently ranks as the No. 1 defender in the draft.


I would like to think Branch was putting everything he had on the line, being he went to the combine?

He had the same problems in college, lack of motivation it shows in his stats?

i know adams stole the show BUT brancj will not drop out of the top 10 and "scouts" the same "scouts" that said take ryan leaf ahead of peyton ricky williams over the edge and the same "scouts" that said heath shuler and danny wurefuel would be huge

Re: Gaines Adams: Dream Come True, being a REDSKIN

I think that Joe Gibbs summed it up when he said that Redskins football is about running the ball and stopping the run.

In my opinion a 330 pound monster from the big 10 goes a long way towards stopping the run.

Who would the offense double team? Griffin or Branch? Doubling one of them up frees up the ends and linebackers. If they can get Rocky coming from the edge, look out!
