Do you think Marvin Austin could play 3-4 DE? The JJ Watt and Aaron Kampman comparison seems strange, doesn't watt have 30 lbs or so on Kampman?

Austin's best fit might be in the 3-4, with the power he already has. Look for him to go in the 4th-5th

Watt does have the size over Kampman but they are similar players. Both effective in both rushing the passer and stopping the run. Both are not sack artists, but have high motors that really help Watt be a high pick

what do people see in DeAndre Mcdaniel????

Ahmad Black is superior in every single thing. Not to mention Jerron Johnson...

Big, hits hard, very productive two time First Team All-ACC... Like Rahim Moore he was much better last year than this season seeing as he made more big plays in coverage/fewer mistakes. Still was a good player this year for Clemson and has very high upside. I see him as a Late 2nd-Mid 3rd Rounder, though a good performance at the Combine could push him up a bit due to a weak class.

Very productive, but I've yet to see a safety get beat this year more then him. Every Clemson game I saw that dude was getting ROASTED deep 2,3 even 4 times a game. He was brutal this year.

Moore was still good this year. His INTs are down because teams flat out avoided him, not cause he got beat, although he did a little. Not nearly as much as McDaniel.

I take it you never watched a Michigan game.

meant a draftable safety.

But yes, they are atrocious aswell. Although I think that one SS (the white boy) has a little something.

I would call others crazy for ranking any of the other 3 QB's crazy as well. All have problems but I think Newton's ceiling is the highest of the QB's

If you are talking about Kovacs, he is not getting drafted.

I think Black and McDaniel are close right now, but Black could get the notch over him with a solid comine. Running in the 4.4's would be great for him.

Jerron Johnson is a guy I can see making a impact early in the NFL at FS
