Re: Brandon Albert

he seems to do a lot well, needs a little work on the small things... i wonder if he can pull like that in the NFL though. I mean, dockery did it, but he's not going to pull like randy thomas does. he can bulldoze though.

I don't know, in terms of the actual pull itself, I think he does a better job of getting in position then Thomas does, but on the bulldozer point I agree with you. If anything Albert just doesn't look real aggressive.

Also gotta repost the videos since the thread ended up a new page I'll also use this post to throw in cliff notes.

Re: Brandon Albert

Miami Game:
0:03 - Good job on the pull, but is late getting to defender forcing the play a few more yards outside and preventing the RB from running North-South
0:17 - Does a good job timing screen but doesn't hit anyone
0:24 - Does a good job driving defender away from the play
0:33 - Does an excellent job on the pull and getting in the way of the defender but doesn't finish
0:58 - Excellent job on the pull, creates a running lane, doesn't finish block
1:04 - Does a good job of opening a lane and taking #54 out of the play
1:10 - EXCELLENT JOB of pulling and then turning up inside and finishing the blcok
1:30 - Does a good job getting off the ball and driving defender away from the play
1:40 - Great job on the pull, finishes off defender and pushes him out of bounds
1:50 - Good job of getting downfield on screen but has trouble engaging the defender in space
2:00 - Great pull and does a good job of walling defender off making it possible for runner to get upfield
2:10 - Does a great job pulling but DOESN'T FINISH. As a result defender makes a play for a loss
2:25 - Nice job getting in position on the bootleg, drives defender past QB
2:38 - Great pull and does a good job creating a running lane, TOUCHDOWN
2:58 - Great pull, but forgets to finish
3:08 - Fires off the ball and pushes defender 6-7 yards off the LOS
3:16 - Misses defender on pull leads to TFL
3:24 - Excellent job walling off defender and creating a running lane
3:33 - Reaches on pass pro, saved by QB's quick release
3:40 - Overshoots on pull
3:50 - Nice job on pull, DOESN'T FINISH
4:11- Nice pull butagain doesn't finishand ends up getting driven into the backfield

Due to the lack of pass plays I can only assume that scouts love his ability as a pass blocker. However after watching this "film" it's obvious that he needs a lot of work in the run game especially when it comes to finishing.

Re: Brandon Albert

Ross Tucker did say that most Guards are pretty similar with regards to the running game.

Of course if they plan to use him at tackle over time, this is certainly something they should consider.

Re: Brandon Albert

seems like a stretch for a top 10 pick. i think his value is around #20, and hopefully he'll be around then.

Branden Albert

I keep reading that the Skins are interested in Albert (and who wouldn't be) but what's the likelihood of him being there at #21, or even making it out of the top 10??

Re: Branden Albert

I dont see him making it to 21 but I wouldnt be so eager to draft him. I would rather get a DE or DT in the first round.

Re: Branden Albert

Most every ranking or Mock has him going before #21, I would be shocked if he falls. However, if he does we could probably make a trade with someone wanting to come up to get him. He's a great talent, but I think we can get Rachal or Scheuning (sp?) in the 3rd. Our needs at DL & CB outweigh the need at Guard.

IMO we should go with Merling, or one of the top CBs (McKelvin, DRC, Jenkins, so-so on Talib). I'm assuming Dorsey, Ellis will be gone.

If none of the above are available, look to trade down. If we have to make the pick go Jackson, DE, USC or Balmer, DT, UNC.

I know, pretty fluent huh? Oh wait no wasn't I suppose to call Matty the other d-bag. Or should I have said that Branden Albert was a 3rd round pick and it would be stupid to project him into the top 10. I don't know they have a pretty complicated language over there.

Re: Branden Albert

Anyway back to topic. Right now the most likely places for Albert are New England at 7, Baltimore at 8, KC at 5, Chicago at 14, Houston at 18, and of course Washington at 21.
