  • Calais Campbell

    The guys a freak 6'8" 285lbs but i was wandering how good he really is, is he fast, can he get to the QB, can he over power defenders and will he fit better in the 4-3 or 3-4?

    He runs a 4.6-4.7 in the mold of Julius Peppers. A 4-3 guy. Productive. Not strong enough (IMO) to play inside like Mario Williams.

      I agree with your analysis. He's best suited as a pure 4-3 DE. Though he does has the frame to Bulk up. He looks pretty thin for a guy who is 280. If he can get in the 290-295 range for the combine and still keep his speed he could be scary.

      Here's a highlight video of him I found. It's not the best video but you still get the idea.

          He will be next year's #1 draft pick if the team picking #1 already has a franchise RB...such as Washington.

          I would be shocked to see him fall out of the top 3 next season.

            It doesn't take much for anyone to fall out of the top 3. Calais could have sprained his ankle in pee wee football and he would fall out of the top 3. Scouts know everything, and more.

                    Because noone wants to watch Ken Phillips tackle people for 10 minutes.. and Campbell is mostly based on pro potential rather than college performance.

                      Well he did have 10 sacks, 20 tkl and 80 tackles last year.

                      That is correct comahan

                        how is that different from watching anyone else tackle people for 10 min... besides a lto of films are like 3-5 min long... and like DG said... 10 1/2 sacks is production... although maybe that 1/2 a sack is decieving? he didnt hustle and get 11....

                          As shocked as when Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn, and Adrian Peterson fell out of the top 3 in their respective draft years? As much as I like Campbell (and I like him a lot) he hasn't done enough to show me that he is a lock for the top 3 next year. I'd actually be willing to be that when most scouts and draft sites come out with their preseason 2008 draft previews, Campbell isn't a top 3 prospect in most of them. Again, I like Campbell a lot. However, I think too many people are jumping the gun on the kid looking for the next Peppers or Williams.

                            he is the next peppers and don't you forget it

                            and the reason there isn't any tape on him is because Miami didn't get any National TV time last year besides the FSU game and the brawl
