Excellent site for videos of the top prospects

I'll post links to some prospects that interest us

Jerod Mayo

One thing I noticed during this video was his ability to get to the quarterback. Definitely a great blitzer.

Curtis Lofton
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2008/video/?c=Player&p=215788&s=3030307
I don't think he is actually a great cover 2 guy. Doesn't have great speed. More of a down hill type.

Jordan Dizon
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2008/video/?c=Player&p=215787&s=3031142
Highly productive. Smaller size. Good closing speed. Great intangibles

Derrick Harvey

Seems like his best move is just running around the blocker, but I don't know.

Rashard Mendenhall

hmm a couple things i noticed...In the video it said Mayo lacked height..yet they listed him at 6"3...and I didnt realize how small Harvey is...HE looks to me like a 3-4 type player.

I don't think Lofton is as slow as everyone says he is. He ran a slow 40 time, but on game clips, he looks pretty fast. He'd fit in well on our team for sure.

i dont rly like the idea of lofton as our MLB i dont feel he fits and i think he would fail in this system. Right now i think mayo would be perfect for us.

Mendenhall is freakin' amazing. Mayo looks great but 15's too early and second round he won't be there. Didn't see Lofton yet, but from what I hear. Harvey looks solid.

Mayo looks like he tackles too high, if he doesnt fix that he's gonna get run over next year. I wish the vido would have shown how he does taking on blockers, but he definately can penetrate and get to the QB and has the speed to make plays all over the field. That being said he might be best as a WLB, but still he should be able to play MLB effectively.
