Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

Paea is a can't miss, day one starter. Let's forget all about the free agent NT's this guy just jumped to the top of my wish list.

I get him before I get Farley or whatever his name is.

A taste of Mallett:
NFL Videos: Mallett interview

He just seems not very charming or a great orator or anything, but he threw the ball around really well today.

I heard it was 6 halves. Which I guess would equal 3 reps if we are being kind.

Why? Because he can bench press a lot? 49 reps @ 225 is silly strong to be sure, but that doesn't make him a can't miss, day one starter.

You say he just jumped to the top of your wish list. Be honest- was he even anywhere near your list before today? He's not even 300 lbs and probably the 4th or 5th DT out available.

Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

The no one asked me combine QB notes:

1st group:

Speed Out x3 (Left/Right) -5 step no hitch and throw: 3 big-2 quick open hips/rocker step throw:Locker (L) 3 good ones (R) 3 good ones
Mallett (L) 3 good ones (R) 2 good ones
Dalton (R) 3 good ones
Kaep (R) 2 good ones
Jerrod Johnson (R) 2 good ones

Slants x3 (Left) 3 quick and throwMallett 3 very good ones
Locker 2 good ones
Dalton 3 good ones

Go Route 7 step w/ hitch 3 big 4 quick-small 1 hitch
Kaep +2 launched 1 on a line
Locker +3 (completed all the 3) but didn't uncork any underthrew one and threw a perfect one
Mallett +3 didn't complete any IIRC but freakin launched all 3 of his
Dalton +3 completed all 3
QB #4 (Enderle?)= 2 good ones

Group 2:

Speed Out x3 (Left/Right) -5 step no hitch and throw: 3 big-2 quick open hips/rocker step throw:
Stanzi (R) 3 good ones (L) 3 good ones -throwing to a spot not worried about the completions
Ponder (R) 1good one (L) 2 good ones*
Newton (R) 1 good one*
Portis (R) 3 good ones (L) 3 completions**
Tyrod (R) 3 good ones but was throwing very under control

*Ponder and Newton were hitching (taking an extra step or waiting) at the top of their drops and it threw off their rhythm.
I think the wanted to complete the pass rather then just throw it to the spot and were waiting on there WRs where as Stanzi just ripped it on time on target if the WR was there or not.
Newton seemed very deliberate in his drop like he was thinking about it, which is probably b/c he is thinking about it: executing a 5 step drop rhythm throw is new to him.

**Portis drop back was off rhythm but his throws were on time his footwork reminded me of Cutler bad footwork good throw.

Poster Corner (Right side) 3 big 4 quick-small hitch and throw
Stanzi 3 good ones
Newton 2 good ones
Portis 3 good ones
Tyrod 2 good ones
Tolzien(sp?) 3 good ones

Sounds to me like Dalton is sneaking up, he would be my pick.

I agree that it's quite premature to consider him some kind of can't miss prospect just because he was able to throw 225lbs up 49 times. Hell yeah it's impressive, but that doesn't make him the top dog.

Now he may not be the #1 DT in the draft, but I think he may now be the best NT in the draft if he gains more weight or 3-4 DE. He happens to be 6'1" 303lbs.

edit:
Just checked out the scouting reports on him at Sporting News and NFL.com and he's getting rave reviews so maybe there is something to him being a beast. Let's just not get Mamula'ed

Where? In the first round? Second? No way in the first and at this point it would be a reach in the second. We have too many other needs to reach on a kid like Dalton even as talented as some think he is.

Most of the stuff I've seen has him at around 295lbs. Not that that's small, but it's way short of the dominant NT/DTs in the league.

Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

I'll go with this assessment of his height/weight:
NFL Events: Combine Player Profiles - Stephen Paea

Was kinda surprised to see DaRel Scott ran a 4.34. Pretty impressive.

Yeah Scott's 40 was impressive.

As for Paea, 303, 295, whatever. How much does Raji weigh? Haloti Ngata? Just saying.

I think Paea could be a solid player, but I just don't see him as a "can't miss, day 1 starter."

You don't like Nick Fairley? You should look at more film of him, then. I think you might change your mind about him. I think he'll be an outstanding NFL player.

I think that a NT needs more bulk than Paea can carry. We'd be more likely to draft Phil Taylor at that position. The 40-45 lb. difference between the two of them is significant for a NT.

I think that Scott is underrated. I suppose that is due to the perception that he has a fumbling problem. Tiki Barber fumbled alot, too, but Tom Coughlin helped him to fix the problem. I think Scott could be cured also.

If he wasn't seen as a fumbler, then what would his image be? I think it would be as a "home run hitter". If this guy gets through a hole cleanly, he's gone. He proved that in college. Also, he catches the ball well and he usually does something good with it after the catch. He has good size, as well, to go with his blazing speed. I think he could be a very good 3rd Down Back in the NFL.

By the way, it would be a shame if we don't get a 3rd Down Back in the 2011 Draft. Kendall Hunter, Demarco Murray, Shane Vereen, and Scott are all good prospects for that role, IMO. We need more draft picks!
