Why can't they just use the position abbreviations we are all used to? "WO?" C'mon man...

And what the hell is a "DC?" I'm assuming CB...so why can't they just say CB?

Nick Sukay listed at LB, interesting. Was originally a LB recruit, probably too slow to legitimately play S in the NFL anyway.

ben heenan, og, saskatchewan. huge kid pretty athletic. grew up playing against him in hockey and football. excited to see how he performs in the shrine game. will be the #1 pick in the CFL draft most likely (but thats way irrelevant)

Really? Well that's annoying. In a country so obsessed with football, I'm quite surprised that no network wants to cover this.

This is why I shouldn't do two things at once. I was talking NFLPA Game on twitter (which hasn't been on TV)

Shrine Game is, it will be on the NFL Network. 4 PM, Saturday the 21st

Sorry BB.

Sukay was recruited mostly as a safety, though some looked at him as a WR.

It'lll be nice to see if Brandon Lindsey impresses. Todd Graham's defense had Lindsey rushing from 3-man front much of the season. The majority of the pass rush came from smaller LB/S hybrids like Todd Thomas.

What I saw was that Graham didn't want Lindsey in coverage AT ALL. Not sure if that means that he can't, or that he wasn't given opportunity.

Not having Jabaal Sheard opposite him really hurt production. That being said, Graham probably would've had Sheard sitting the bench or playing out of position, just as Lindsey did.

Buzz today is about a lot of the small school guys actually, I'll be interested to see how the week goes.

Tauren Poole also looking good by most accords

Amazing how different people see things, the nature of scouting. I've read that Dan Persa, BJ Coleman, and Chandler Harnish have all looked like the best QB there from different sources. The Cunningham and Jenkins were both impressive and disappointing. Always have to be sure to read a lot of opinions as there always seem to be consensus opinions and those are the players you really want to bump.

By all accounts, Fresno State WR Devon Wylie, Tennessee Tech WR Tim Benford, Coastal Carolina CB Josh Norman, and Miami (OH) OG Brandon Brooks were all big-time day 1 winners.

Tauren Poole is the worst running back ever. Not an exaggeration.

Des Wynn hass been killing it in practice so far from what I've read. It sounds like he's probably making himself some money.

Coleman is intriguing to me...I don't know much about him but from what I have read he looks the part and has a rocket arm. Interesting developmental guy I suppose...should be an interesting one to watch.

His numbers don't look pretty, but was it the O-line or him?

One of "my guys" in this draft. I saw and inordinate amount of Rutgers games for some reason the last 2 years, and Wynn has always struck me as a guy that's going to be a steal. He's played LG for Rutgers, but has the measurables of a LT. I think he needs some coaching, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him start at either position within a couple years.

The o-line deserves some blame but he's still awful. Zero patience. Tries to break everything outside even though he's slow as hell. Poor vision. Trips over himself all the time when he is in the open field.

For those who missed it, we had about a fifteen minute discussion on the East / West Shrine Game with Joe Everett of RookieDraft.com, who is down there covering it.

Mike Mayock, who is attending the practices, said today, that the 2 prospects at the East-West shrine game that most impressed him in practice were DaJohn Harris DT USC and Tyrone Crawford DE Boise St. Both showed potential 2nd or 3rd round talent.
Crawford was up to 284 and showing no ill effects for the weight gain and looked solid as a 3-4 DE.

How has Brandon Lindsey looked? I've always been higher than most on him, I think he is a 3rd/4th rounder....

Norman has been in the mid rounds on my board since October. Scouts have been buzzing big time on him. He gave up some plays against Georgia but made some plays too. He was a shut down guy in most of their games and when he gave up passes closed really well on them. At 6003, 203 pounds they expect him to run in the 4.4s and test well at the Combine. He needs some coaching and has some character questions but some have him as high as the 2nd round while I think most rank him as a 4th round guy.

Says to have looked lethargic and is only a pass rusher. Sucks that my fellow Western Pennsylvanian might go in the later rounds.

He's just not a fit in the 4-3. From what I've heard, he's looked just fine covering in the flat and for underneath routes. This was just a bad situation for him.

RaiderNation
01-19-2012, 07:51 PM
I've always thought of Lindsey as a OLB in the 3-4, and if he looks good in coverage with the sacks #'s he has put up the last 2 seasons he could get a look early on. Can't wait to see his combine stats....

I watched Coleman tape last night (and am seeing him today) and his footwork is very good so I don't know why he said that...

What do you think the toughest team an east-west shrine team could beat? I would say in the area of Houston, Cincinnati, Southern Mississippi.

He has a very solid arm, but not sure the latter will match up at the NFL level.
