  • Dunlap declaring

    saw it on espn just now

    Fine decision, whether it be this year or next, this guy was going to be a 1st Round pick based off of upside. Disgusted by the lack of leverage, explosiveness, and power he plays with... but perhaps a coach will come along that can unlock his potential and get his athleticism translating to the field. Average->Solid player with the physical tools and experience at a high level of competition. Hopefully not in the Top 10-15 discussion, but a fine risk after that. A 4-3 end, not buying much value in the 3-4.

      If he falls to the 3rd round like in the forum mock, someone may be very happy. If someone burns a top 20 pick on him...well, notsomuch...

        I think thats entirely possible, him slipping to the 3rd round. The questions about his desire were enough to make him a 2nd rounder and then he got the crazy DUI.

        3rd round seems about right.
        I want a sig.

          If he can answer the character concerns following the DUI then he'll be looking at the bottom of round one. JPP is being touted as a potential top 10 pick and his physical skills and statistics are on par or less than Dunlap's and JPP went up against lower compeitition. I'm not a big fan of either one but coaches think they can maximize any player's potential and they'll be willing to take the risk for the reward of the player's potential.

            You can say what you want about the guy, but production has never been his biggest issue.

              Basically a Calais Campbell clone. Like Campbell, it will take a few years of development before he's ready to be a solid contributor in the pros, whether it's in a 4-3 or 3-4. All of it depends on how willing he is to shore up his defense against the run, because he's stupid if he thinks his value is as a pure pass rusher.

                I just want to kidnap him and stick him in a 3-4 somewhere.

                  He should have stayed.

                    If you do though, it'll be a couple of years before he's ready to really contribute in the 3-4. He isn't that strong for his size yet and doesn't play with leverage against the run. Plus, he's not done filling out his frame. I assume he'll be easily over 300 lbs by the time he reaches his prime (again, this is as a 3-4 end).

                      I think he's more explosive than Campbell who ran about a 5 flat at the comine. Dunlap should excel there.

                        Honestly, that's good news for the Gators. They get a headache off thier roster and will just replace him with a new 5 star DE like Ronald Powell. I hate UF.

                          He couldn't have done anything to really improve his stock. What goes up, must come down....

                            I see a spot for him in the end of round one. Passrushers are always in high demand, and the guy has semi good production and great measurables.
