Re: 2012 NFL Draft (Day 2)


Leribeus returned for his senior campaign after being academically ineligible as a junior, and was the same scrappy, reliable inside blocker that he has been throughout his career. He has the size and technique inside to play early at the next level or be a reliable backup, which gives him fifth-round value as a guard or potential center.


STRENGTHS Leribeus is a very good scheme and overall run blocker in SMU's offense. He is quick off the ball with his first step and almost always gets his hands on blocks early. He is an active player who will fight to sustain his blocks downfield. He shows good effort and motor to stay with the play and is just as effective when working in space as a puller. Some small issues with his footwork and athletic ability show up when he tries to work to the second level, but overall he almost always finds a way to block his man.

WEAKNESSES Leribeus is a bit slow and struggles athletically. This could be a problem at the next level, as he isn't a very strong or explosive blocker. He would be better served to work within a zone blocking scheme where he isn't expected to fully move defenders.

Yes, we passed up on some talent at skill positions BUT when you bring in a rookie quarterback into the NFC east you better be able to protect him right away. I don't know the player yet but I like the position we picked.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft (Day 2)

Shanny and Allen have surprised me with some unknowns so far so I'll give it a chance.

Is it me, or has ESPN started completely ignoring the actual picks as soon as the 3rd starts. As much as I appreciate a 20 minute circle jerk about Russel Wilson -- do your job and announce picks, as they happen, along with a quick blurb about each player.
Best. Player. Available.

He was expected to go undrafted and we take him in the 3rd?

I like the pick, given our midround picks last year, I trust the FO. I guess J Brown is healthy though?

Re: 2012 NFL Draft (Day 2)

CBS Sports gave him a 3rd round grade, and rated him the 5th G in the draft

Re: 2012 NFL Draft (Day 2)

ESPN's player card has him graded at a 54, with "below average" or "average" marks in 6 out of the 8 categories they grade.

I don't see any reason why we couldn't have waited until at least the 5th round for this guy. Why not Xebrie Sanders from FSU?

No kidding! Bleep Bruce Allen. I'm sure LeRibeus will be a big help on the practice squad when RGIII is getting drilled by Demarcus Ware.
