Re: Insider Profile: Manuel White Jr.

Still can't believe we didn't take a DE with the talent that is on the board. Good pick though, would have rather got Neighmiah Broughton from the Citadel though.

Re: Extra Pick

Another pick that will take some creative (read: blindly optimistic) thinking to be at peace with.

Re: Insider Profile: Manuel White Jr.

Doesnt' Gibbs run a two tightend set? Is he going to switch to H-Back?

The logic of this pick escapes me. "an intriguing developmental FB prospect" we you have other needs???

Re: Extra Pick

we still have gaping holes at TE and pass rushing DE, and no hight at WR...I also think we could still get some good people at MLB, perhaps Ahmad Brooks. In a way, this draft reminds me of last years. I was pretty pissed that we didn't take Winslow...but look how great a pick Taylor turned out to be. Still, here's my predictions at the next three rounds: 5th round-running back, 6th round-left tackle, 7th round-quarterback...they don't make sense so they must be whats going to happen

Re: Extra Pick

DE, LB, and WR.

Not sure what order, but I think these will be our next picks.

Re: Extra Pick

Rock is a special teams guy at this point.

I'm thinking we may see some two back sets next year, perhaps a lead FB for Portis?

White isn't a great blocker right now, but he's got potential to improve on his technique and nice size.

Profile: Robert McCune, ILB Louisville

I like this pick, Williams should be able to mold him


Strengths: Has an exceptional combination of size, strength and straight-line speed. Is powerful at the POA and shows the ability to take on blocks in the phone booth if he plays with better technique. Has great range and closing burst versus the run. Is an explosive tackler that closes quickly and shows very good short area power. Fills hard versus the run. Has great speed when he gets a clear lane to the quarterback as a blitzer. Also has adequate range in zone coverage and the speed to run with most backs downfield.

Weaknesses: Is still not as fundamentally sound as he needs to be. He plays too high at times and needs to show better leverage and consistency when it comes to taking on blocks in the phone booth. He must also learn to use his hands better to shed. At times he will take too long to diagnose a play. He gets away with it at the C-USA level because of his speed but he needs to make quicker reads and react faster. Too many arm tackles. Needs to do a better job of breaking down and wrapping up. He has elite speed but his hips are a little bit stiff and he doesn't have great man-to-man cover skills. He has potential in zone coverage but he needs to take fewer false steps versus play-action. He does a good job of knocking passes down in his zone, but his ball skills are below average.

Overall: McCune redshirted in 2000 and saw action only as a backup from 2001-'02 before taking over as Louisville's fulltime starting middle linebacker as a junior in 2003, when he finished with 143 total tackles, five TFL and four sacks. He started all 12 games (ILB and OLB) as a senior in 2004 and led the team with 115 total tackles, including four for loss, two sacks and one interception. A member of the National Guard; spent six months in Kuwait and a full year in Korea. He will be a 26-year old rookie in the NFL. McCune was much improved as a senior and his upside is extremely intriguing because of his rare combination of size (6-0, 245), strength (33 reps of 225-pound bench press) and speed (4.50). However, McCune is a much more attractive prospect when watching him work out in shorts than he is when studying him in pads on film. He has great top-end speed for his size but he plays stiff and he has lots of limitations in terms of his range versus the run and in coverage, as a result. Furthermore, he still lacks ideal technique and recognition skills, which leads to inconsistent play. In our opinion, McCune is worth the gamble in the fourth-to-fifth round range of the upcoming draft but anywhere earlier than that would be a classic case of getting caught up in McCune as a "workout warrior", not a football player.

Sounds raw but has potential.

Sounds like a good character guy, served in the military.

Definitely needs work.

Newberry

Newberry-POSITIVES Moves well latterally and has good instincts, keys and diagoneses quickly. Very good range to play ot the sideline, natural athlete and will fly to the ball. plays fast and has a passion for the game. TIme blitzes nicely. Can sift through traffic and makes a lot of plays in backsie pursuit. Great body contral and change of direction. best in coverage and shows good enough cover skills to make a switch to strong safety. reliable tackler. very smart. NEGATIVES production dropped as a senior, undersized, stuggles taking on blocks, marginal strength. Gives ground to run around blocks at times and takes himself out of plays. limited power and explosiveness on contract. Gets knocked around at point of attack. Does not use his hands well to shed. ....................

Overall not bad.......Williams can mold him and needs time in weight room to add strength________________
