Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Ok so Lombardi's second mock draft has us picking up Aldon Smith. I like that idea or Prince Amukamara. Or even Julio Jones

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Yeah, I looked him up after seeing his name on this thread and I have to say no thanks. Seemed like he got by to much on being big and fast. In college you can overpower people, in the NFL you need to be Brian Orakpo to even think about getting away with it. Unlike Orakpo though, his Smith kid plays high (no not 420 high).

Quote:
Tall. Plays too high at times and needs to learn to better protect his lower body. A lot stronger in upper body than lower. Struggles to anchor at the point of attack versus bigger offensive tackles. Will get up the field and disrupt in the backfield. Shows adequate discipline with contain. Can make plays versus the run in pursuit but backside effort is a bit inconsistent.
Ayers seems like the best fit that will be available when we pick at 10. Quinn might be better but theres a chance he might be to slow to handle coverage assignments.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Smith has a lot of potential but id rather have miller or Quinn. Ayers is a good option also

Norwood definitely! Sproles has shown to be more valuable on return duty than RB...we already have a midget returner (who is faster).

Huge Mizzou fan. I had the chance to see Aldon a few times this year. One thing that is obvious with him is his natural speed. It's not that same kind of muscle explosiveness we see from Orakpo, but he's FAST. He'll almost certainly play 3-4 OLB in the NFL and the best comparison I could give would be Shaun Phillips. Similar build, but don't expect him to be THAT effective.

The truth is if you expect Aldon Smith to potentially be the best OLB in the draft, you'd be crazy. He's at best the 4th ranked OLB in my opinion.


Robert Quinn, Von Miller, and Ryan Kerrigan would all fit our style better.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Quinn is a hybrid LB/DE similar to Orakpo, he is regarded as a top 3 Rusher

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

But the character issues. I don't wanna deal with some guy who parties till 4 in the morning and gets into major trouble.

His ability to go through blockers and get into the backfield is top class.

His bull rush personally reminds me a lot of Orakpo. If he develops a counter move or two he'll be unstoppable.

Not character issues. He and his family accepted money and gifts from an agent, and initially Quinn didn't admit to it. But then did and admitted he was just scared of the repercussion and trying to protect his family. He's a good kid, who's been through a lot.

His suspension reminds me in many ways of Jeremy Jarmon....what are the plans for him by the way

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Quinn IMO is not worth being selected #10. Not because of character but because he's too big 2 play Will or in a 3-4. He'll be a slightly above average DE in the NFL. Reminds me of a young Phillip Dainels.

To me Quinn is an Orakpo clone. If anything a guy that can move like him at his size and play the will is a huge luxury. From what I've seen he uses that same bull rush that frequently gets Orakpo held. In his last season he had 11 sacks along with 19 TFL (which is counted separately). That is not your traditional anchor left end/Daniels prototype.

Also his "character" issues are vastly overstated. It's sad that a guy like Cam Newton gets to play all season but someone like Quinn is suspended for the entire season.

Quote:
Intangibles - 1 -Very humble about his abilities. Dedicated and passionate about the game. Recipient of ACC's Brian Piccolo Award in 2007 as league's most courageous player.
The real concerns about Quinn are as follows:
1. How is he in coverage?
2. How will he respond to a new level of competition after a year off at his previous level?
3. Is his Brain Tumor still benign?

His ability to rush the passer and make plays in the back field on the other hand should be unquestioned.
