Re: 2012 NFL Draft (Day 2)

Josh LeRibeus

Biography: Broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore in 2009. Academically ineligible during the 2010 campaign.

Positives: Tough, explosive blocker who's effective in motion. Gets his hands into defenders, keeps his feet moving and turns opponents off the line. Displays solid overall body strength, plays with good quickness and keeps his head on a swivel. Recognizes stunts or twists thrown by opponents and plays with awareness. Anchors at the point of attack and does not give up an inch to defenders. Fluid moving across the line of scrimmage, quick out to the second level and out-positions linebackers from the action.

Negatives: Occasionally late getting his hands into defenders. Lacks classic height for an interior blocker.

Analysis: LeRibus returned to form in 2011 and made scouts take notice with his exceptional play. He's a solid prospect with the ability to line up for a number of offensive systems in the NFL and could eventually develop into a starter.

Projection: 7-FA

I refrain from criticizing the players themselves, as you said, they definitely know more than us but one thing that even a novice can question is the logic behind taking a guy with a high rnd pick that would have been available later. The fact that the guy ate himself off his team for a year tells me he would have still been there in the later rounds. I really hope this guy works out. With all the high round picks we traded away for Griffin we definitely needed to land a future starter with this pick. Hopefully we did that.

He's not Trent Williams athletically but he does have very good footwork and a decent bench press - 225 29 reps (Trent Williams had 23 reps at his combine). I think he will be fine.

Wish I knew where you guys get your crystal balls from. Who's to say for sure he would be there in the 5th? How do you know what the Skins draft board looks like?

I didn't know you got academically ineligible for eating too much.

Aldrick will take the league by storm next year. Lookout DBs. He's why Dallas traded up for Claiborne.

3rd round is not the place to put hopes on ANYONE being a sure starter. Simply because you want or need something doesn't mean you'll get it. And it was academic ineligibility.

Dan Shonka just tweeted me that he thinks LeRibeus is tough but has a lot to learn.
