  • Draftguys TV is Back! - Knox, Joseph, Parson and more!

    Draftguys TV is back for its second season! Last year we profiled players like Gary Guyton and Eric Foster, who went from undrafted free agent to NFL starters. This year we're excited to be breaking down the games of the players who deserve more love once again.

    Our first batch of episodes includes:

    Frantz Joseph, LB, Florida Atlantic -
    http://draftguys.com/index.php/artic...rida_atlantic/

    TJ Lang, OL, Eastern Michigan
    http://draftguys.com/index.php/artic...tern_michigan/

    Johnny Knox, WR, Abilene Christian (Mr 4.34)
    http://draftguys.com/index.php/artic...ene_christian/

    Mark Parson, CB, Ohio
    http://draftguys.com/index.php/artic...n_-_cb_-_ohio/

    Clinton McDonald, DT, Memphis
    http://draftguys.com/index.php/artic..._dt_-_memphis/

    I'll be dropping in to discuss our class of 2009 periodically as new episodes launch. We'd love to hear feedback on the show and what YOU think about our guys, as this is the best draft forum anywhere on the internet. Please tell your draft-savvy friends about draftguys TV. You can always find the newest episodes at http://draftguys.com/index.php/articles/dgtv . Thanks to Scott Wright for placing our profiles on his player profile pages and letting us engage this great community in discussions about our show.

      I'm also glad, you guys don't know how hard it is to find a good video of Bernard Scott. I was looking today during class on youtube and couldn't find one solid one on Knox or Scott.

      His vision, balance, acceleration, speed in pads, receiving ability out of the backfield or even in the slot, and just pure natural talent is as good as almost any runner in this draft. You have to wonder what could have been at a D-IA school without the five arrests. I know you love him and I have to agree with you, the guy's got some serious talent. He's a NFL-caliber guy, there is no doubt about that. He could realistically succeed in any scheme, but could truly shock people in the right situation (perhaps mid-late round to a team that uses a Zone Blocking Scheme.)

      Also, just watched the video on Mark Parson. I am a student at Ohio University so I have gotten a good look at Parson. Great analysis. Parson has the ability to be a very solid nickel back in a zone defense, perhaps a 3-4 team that plays him off the ball and allows him to take some risks. Still, you must remember, Parson isn't the biggest guy, nor is he the strongest guy. I would not say he is a liability against the run, but in run-support he is largely raw. He also had a tough time at OU with inconsistent hands, though it would appear from your report that he has improved any shown solid hands in recent weeks.

      I agree that he is being overlooked in many draft circles and he remains a sleeper to watch closely. I think the earliest (would take an impressive Pro Day on March 12) would be the Mid 4th for Mark, where a team such as the Jets, Chargers, or Patriots could fall in love there. Right now though, I see Parson in the Mid 5th-Early 7th. I'll be in attendance in two-three weeks at their Pro Day and I'll see how he tests/times and what type of team seems to be looking closely.

      - I am also very interested in Clinton McDonald who also doesn't get much hype around these parts. He is on my draft board in the Late 5th-Mid 7th range, but a solid post-season could have him shooting a bit higher than that similar to former teammate CB Brandon McDonald.

      - T.J. Lang is another underrated player that could end up at either OT or Left Guard at the next level. He, right now, is in the Mid 4th-Mid 5th range in my opinion with the potential to move up with a good Pro Day. A true Combine snub along with Parson, McDonald, Joseph, and of course, Devin Moore.

        Good stuff. I was watching Joseph's video yesterday.
        Are you guys doing one on Western Illinois' Jason Williams? I think he has a chance to be a steal for a 4-3 team, or at least a good special teams player.

          <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
          <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
          <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

            We've been working on Scott's profile this week - Knox is out and you should be able to find it on youtube (watch in high quality) - although his stuff gets mixed in with Johnny Knoxville when you search.

            We love the talent of both of these guys, they are definitely NFL material.

              Williams had a few plays that stood out in Houston and he is close to the cut line right now. We plan on making 50 player profiles, and right now, he's probably not in that group, but if time allows, we'll make more. I can tell you that he covered ground quickly and looked very instinctive in the West practices.

                    Watching that video of Frantz Joseph makes me want him a whole bunch as a Pittsburgh Steeler.

                      Did you get the chance to talk to Bernard personally? Or have you heard from any NFL personnel about their feelings about Scott? I am trying to get a feel for how serious he has dedicated himself to making football a career and leaving his past in the past. I know he has not gotten in any recent trouble, but that could just mean he's doing a better job not getting caught doing anything wrong. Any ideas there?
