Bruce Campbell should go #1 based on name alone.
All this physical amazement is just added flash.

Genetics helps him, but Campbell Sr. was a basketball player. Played mostly overseas too I think. I had to look him up cause I didn't recognize the name... -_-"

9. Brooks Reed, Arizona, DE: Reed is another under-the-radar recruit who has shone. The 6-3, 260-pounder notched eight sacks last season in his first year as a starter for the Cats, who relied on his exceptional explosiveness and burst. Reed power-cleans 450, squats more than 600 and ran a 4.62 40-yard dash this spring. The only thing the Zona sports info people figured he was missing was a great nickname. They're touting the long-haired Reed as "Mr. Freeze," in part because of his initial B.R. as in never mind. Pac-10 offensive coaches probably have other names for him.

I don't get it... :(


Really cool that the list has mostly defensive players and OL's. Didn't know the Baylor QB almost made the Olympic Track and Field team, so that's cool for an offensive player.

Feldman is the man, I love his stuff. There is some serious athleticism in that group but I'm suprised to see no Carlos Dunlap. I want Allen Bailey to be a Patriot because he is an absolute monster. He would be a project, but he has the ability to play as a 3-4 DE or LB. His best fit is probaby in a 4-3 though.

Allen Bailey is probably a 300 lb. 5-tech. He weighs a LEAN 290 right now as he's been trying to keep his weight down. He's the definition of scheme-diverse though. He'd fit great on the Patriots, and should be right in their draft range in '10/11.

I am loving the Allen Bailey hype. If he plays up to his potential, he's arguably a better prospect than Dunlap.

He'd look good in Sexy Rexy's 3-4.

I can't believe I just called the new coach Sexy Rexy. Or that I wrote these sentences rather than erase it.

And while I realize he was "just" an HM...but people really need to realize just how much of a beast Brandon Graham is.

He was referring to Bruce Campbell the actor, maybe the biggest bad ass of all time.

from espn's big east blog

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/bigeast/0-4-298/Allen--Murphy--Devine-among-other-Big-East-workout-warriors.html

You know that Noel Devine is fast. Freakishly fast. But did you have any idea how strong the Mountaineers' running back is?

According to West Virginia's numbers, the 5-foot-7, 175-pound Devine can power clean 300 pounds, squat 500 and bench 435. Those numbers are better than some of the team's offensive linemen. He also posted a 38-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot-7 inch broad jump and ran the pro agility drill in a microscopic 4.04 seconds.

in this years combine he would have been:

4th in rbs in vertical (1st was d. brown at 41.5")
2nd in rbs in broad jump (1st was beanie at 10'8")
1st in 20 yd shuttle (1st was branden ore at 4.08 sec)

When he enters the NFL, Bruce Campbell will become one of my favorite players just on damn principle. "This...is my BOOMSTICK!"

Oh what a shock, Taylor #1. Like a star going supernova, we must force ourselves to simultaneously admire both his terrifying power and tear inducing beauty. :D

Robert Griffin is a beast. I would love to see what he could do in a pro-style system.

Nobody has mentioned Dekota Watson but he is a great player in addition to being a freak athlete, great attitude and played through multiple injuries last year. He could project to SS at the next level but I think he can definitely play WLB, he's a playmaker and look for him to have a strong year.

If he can't play safety in college what makes you think he will in the NFL?

I never said he can't play safety in college, he just doesn't because he plays LB. I said some people might project him to safety in the NFL because he's a bit light.

Griffin could revolutionize the game. A QB that's accurate, runs a 4.3, and wears a visor? That's just scary potential.

He is at the best track school in america for quarter milers. Baylor has had more all-americans in the quarter than any other school by far. 7 of the top 10 times I believe in 400m history. He ran the 400 hurdles and won the big 12 as a HS Senior age wise.

being in the spread will prob hurt him though

but yeah, 1st round pick. not #1 like vick, but that's probably because of vick lol.

He is not Mike Vick. Only thing they have in common is speed and skin color. He throws a lot better than Vick and has more character.

i didn't say he was like vick. they're just alike in the fact that they are probably the fastest players on the field at qb and that's why vick was #1 pick. but because vick didn't turn into this elite qb (not really a bust, he had success), i don't see another team drafting a qb that early because of that factor anymore.

let's see how he does the next two years, a lot of freshman look like they're the next big thing after one year. people are even tabbing julio jones the next calvin johnson. c'mon...

A lot of draft sites have Allen Bailey going in the 2nd day. I thought this to be really weird. Sites like draft scout doesnt even have him as a DT. They have him as a DE.

NFL DRAFT SCOUT has him ranked 14th a his position, while walterfootball doesnt have him at all.

I just pm'ed him on no Allen Bailey or Deunta Williams.

Another thing that makes Bailey a freak: How many people can you name at 289 lbs and 7% body fat?

Allen Bailey sounds like he could add to the beastliness of this UT class...maybe even challenge McCoy and Suh for the top spot with a really good junior season?

This years DT class is so deep, I think it would be a mistake to declare after his junior season when he could potentially be #1 overall in two seasons.

A DT #1 overall? That would require a number of things beyond his control coming together in his favor (bad class, certain players refusing to sign/negotiate, etc.). That said, if he has a really ridiculous season (say, 8-10 sacks, 18-20 TFLs and constant doubles), with his measurables, it'd be hard not to have him as the #1 DT in the class. I know how unlikely a season like that is, but you know his triangle numbers will have scouts drooling, and combined with a season like that, teams would be putting him on at least equal footing with McCoy and Suh.
