  1. Past hour
  2. "Tight hips"? Noooooooo!
  3. well, they needed a corner, so......no complaints good speed, good versatility we already have a great KR tho not sure why he is being listed as a S
  4. Only one at 251. They dealt the other to move up in the 6th.
  5. He's a floor cleaner AND a dessert topping!
  6. Well, there's their KR.
  7. A three-way player for the Cougars, Wilson made an impact as a running back, cornerback, and kick returner. In fact, he was the only player in the nation in 2015 to score multiple touchdowns on offense (two rushing touchdowns), defense (interception return, fumble return, with 58 tackles, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles), and special teams (two kickoff returns). Wilson started eight games at cornerback the previous year (33 tackles, one break-up) after playing on special teams as a redshirt freshman, making five tackles and returning a blocked field goal 78 yards for a score. He finished his UH career with a second-team All-American Athletic Conference season despite missing three games due to injury (43 tackles, one INT, five pass breakups, 5-52 receiving, 4-6 rushing, 512 kick return yards). ANALYSIS STRENGTHS Was the talk of the pro day running 4.36 with a vertical jump of 41 inches, broad jump of 11-feet-1 and 24 bench reps. Versatility could be a selling point. Could be targeted as cornerback, safety or running back. Limited reps as a runner, but looked good. Uses functional jump cut to avoid trouble. Tough runner who can power through angle tackles. Runs with good knee bend and stays behind his pads. Willing to sink and deliver a blow at the finish. Has controlled stride and foot quickness to string together cuts. Offers value as kick returner and in kick coverage. His 100-yard "kick-six" return for a touchdown created huge momentum shift in Houston's week one upset win over Oklahoma. WEAKNESSES Hip tightness limited his ability to make plays on the ball as a cornerback and create average elusiveness in tight quarters as a running back. Will have to find a set position in the pros. As a running back, needs to improve his vision and decisiveness between the tackles. Needs to run with better patience and control. Balance was a little inconsistent in space. Used primarily on swing passes. Will need to expand route-running and prove he can protect to garner third down reps. DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 4-5 SOURCES TELL US "Looks like everyone is woke on Brandon now. I was hoping he would have pulled a hammy (hamstring) so he couldn't work out and I could have kept him off the radar. You don't jump 41 (inches) and run 4.3 and stay off of radars." - NFC national scout NFL COMPARISON Orleans Darkwa BOTTOM LINE Explosive athlete who could be considered on either side of the ball as a defensive back or a running back. Wilson doesn't have as many flashes on tape at cornerback as he does at running back, but his he was primarily a fill-in at running back in a few games over the last two years due to injury. If Wilson transitions to running back, he will be a developmental prospect who could make a roster sooner over later thanks to his kick return potential.
  8. Traded up! For a safety! L. O. L.
  9. They need to do something in case the Ced experiment ends early again this year.
  10. Yup. They screwed up this year by not keeping at least one of Whit or KZ, same way they botched it with Jones and Sanu the year before. All we can do is hope some of the oline guys step up. I'm cautiously optimistic about Fisher. Hopefully Westerman lives up to the hype. Moobs can play, it's just staying healthy that's an issue. No faith in Ced though. I wouldn't be surprised to see them add another vet, a la Richmond Webb back in 01.
  11. So looking at this draft, the bengals screwed up big time in FA. They should have paid Whit and Zietler to stay, if they are going to draft the guys they did this weekend. I would feel so much better about this team, with those two guys here, and not paying guys like Laffel to stay. So all this talent on this team with an O-Line that can't protect worth a shit, or open up running holes will do our new stars no good! Disappointing FA Bengals I wish you would learn how to do that for once!
  12. Teams possibility. Who knows though. Could get into an NFL strength program for a year or two and become an NFL player. Which is what they're looking for at this point, potential.
  13. I agree, but thats as positive as I can get. Sadly, that makes this pick my favorite of this horrendously bad draft
  14. Somebody who can kick touchbacks wow have not seen that in a long time
  15. I can dig it. Nugent's kickoffs sucked.
  16. Today
  17. Not terrible.
  18. Don't think they've taken a corner yet....
  19. They did don't you remember Andre Smith, in fact you might find him sitting next to Eifert, Ross, Dennard, you know all those guys that have boo boos!
  20. OVERVIEW Evans followed in his father's footsteps as an all-conference player for the Sooners; Scott was a three-time all-conference defensive tackle for Oklahoma in the late 1980's. Jordan earned his own All-Big 12 honors the past two seasons, starting with a second-team effort in 2015 despite missing two games due to injury. (83 tackles, five for loss, sack, four pass break-ups). He was a second-team pick in his senior year, as well, leading the Sooners with 98 tackles and four interceptions (also had 10 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and eight pass break-ups). Evans started all 13 games as a sophomore, making 93 stops, 6.5 for loss, and two pass break-ups, one year after contributing in eight games in 2013 (12 tackles, missed five with an injury). ANALYSIS STRENGTHS Carries prototypical NFL frame for the position with low body fat and good length. Flexible and athletic. Productive tackler. Able to turn the corner sharply and track down running backs looking to burst between the tackles. Plus reactive quickness for sudden lateral explosion as a tackler. Has the twitch-trigger to fire downhilll and make plays. Carries outstanding play speed and has the potential to range around the field if kept clean. Fluid cover man in space in man or zone. Possesses ball skills and physical tools to play all three downs. Had twelve passes defensed this season including four interceptions. WEAKNESSES Finesse player. Scouts say he turns down too many opportunities to bang when it is in front of him. Often at the mercy of blockers. Needs to play stronger to maintain control of the rep in run support. Struggles to leverage his gap. Inconsistent angles to the football takes him out of some plays. Needs to be a more squared, physical finisher as a tackler. Allowed too many missed and broken tackles this season. DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 5-6 BOTTOM LINE Productive, three-year starter who will garner attention as a height, weight, speed prospect especially after his strong pro day workout. Evans may lack the physical nature to hold up inside so he may have to find his way as a backup outside linebacker. Evans has enough traits and talent to become an eventual starter if he can play with better toughness and consistency. -Lance Zierlein
  21. We seem to be collecting short arms wasnt westerman (sp?) the same deal last year
  22. OHoping they snag underrated corner from Minnesota, Jalen Myrick. Guy has great speed and ability.
  23. Gimme one of those shiny late-round safeties Marvin likes.
  24. Still need a OT and a LB or two, plus a CB
  25. I am pretty certain that PFF has him rated as the thirty THIRD best OC in the league
  26. too little, too late Like the versatility. Backup linemen like this need to be versatile
