Work Out Warrior?

Not necessarily.

He's been hyped up by our coaches for two years as the best athlete on the team, but he's had a lot of nit-picky injuries.

Like the Article says, i think he could be an elite STer and developmental guy in the NFL his rookie year and then see if he can turn out to be something mroe.

You already know this kid you just didn't know you did.


Tarpinian was slated to be a three year starter at one point but got nicked up and has battled injuries throughout his college career. His medical report is critical but he should be able to hook on in the NFL and play some special teams at least. He took a lot of criticism for getting outrun by Brandon Saine in the 2009 Ohio State game but he is rumored to have been playing on a F'ed up MCL. Also has four years being academic all big ten as an accounting major.

This kid has been on my short list of prospects to potentially add to the rankings for a while now. I remember taking some positive notes on him during the season.

Love that clip because it was a clean, ( non headshot), vicious hit to the midsection and still rocked the hell out of that KR!!!

Interesting to see if he can get past his injury bug and be something at the next level.

Cameron Wake had a similar career at Penn State, set back by injuries.

Scott, where do you project him?

Kaepernick isn't a 'sleeper', but I think he has the potential to be one of the bigger successes at QB in this draft.

He's kind of off the radar with this endless Newton/Locker/Gabbert/Mallett debate, but when the dust settles on draft day, I think some team will have just drafted their QB of the future in CK.

I like the kid but one thing the NFL absolutely does not need is another LB with long hair...It's starting to look like a "Winger" concert

Awesome rationale.
