  • Vernon Gholston

    I've seen him listed as 6-4, 260. And thanks to last week he has about 10 sacks.

    If this kid declares, picks up 5 or 10 pounds and works out well, couldn't he be a factor in the Long vs. Campbell conversations?

    hes far too athletic to be used as just a 4-3 DE. he can do it all, and kinda reminds me of adalius thomas or terrell suggs in that he can play in both schemes and be switched from 4-3 DE or 3-4 LB in different schemes. very versatile, and that helps his value.

        Willie McGinest 2.0. He is truly an animal, and if he comes out will most certainly be the top tweeener possibly challenge Campbell as the #2 DE.

        He is obviously a terrific pass rusher, but is also damn good against the run. I have got to see him in person a few times and he completely dominates his side of the LOS. His hips are a kind of stiff though, so he definitely needs to play in a role similar to Merriman/Willie Mac/Vrabel. In other words, he is a legit SOLB prospect for the 34.

        I would say he is top 15 right now, and may be able to creep in around the top 12 or so if his workouts go as planned.

          The best DE/OLB prospect since Ware/Merriman. I like him more than I did Wimbley as a prospect.

            I think Crable is better. Room to grow, better speed and more fluid.

                As above, good post.

                  He'll declare and Ohio St will have 3 first rounders from there defense. Gholston will get picked in the top 15. His athletic ability will be too much for teams who are looking for an impact rush LB to pass up.

                    IMO he has leap frogged Quentin Groves in the rankings. I could definitly see a team like the Cards pick him up.

                      Was terrible today, overpursued, easily blocked and didnt make the big plays you'd expect from a 1st rounder, to be fair he had plenty of help from his defensive teammates.

                        yaa, normally he stands out whenever i watch him. today he was just another player, unless he made some big plays when i was grabbin lunch.

                          i think he will stick around but if he declares i cant see him lasting past 12 or 13. He would probably end up breaking into the top 10 even with a nice workout. He really is a freak of nature athletically in addition to his football skills.
