    Here a clip of A-Dub from the Texas vs. Nebraska Big 12 Championship game.

    Sorry man, but I didn't see any great physicality in that highlight. He made a couple tackles, but none were real strong aggressive tackles, and I didn't once see him get physical with a WR.

    Yea, I was going to say that a hit on a special teams play doesn't affect how he plays as a corner which is what is most important as far Williams's physicality(or perceived lack thereof).

    Keep in mind that tackling NFL players is harder than bringing down a Colorado return man who happens to be standing still.

    Hate! Hate! Hate!

    A lot of hatred coming from this scout. Diabolical.

    I agree with a lot of it (Baldwin stiffness, Kerrigan stiffness, Liuget monster, Taylor monster, Austin talented, Pouncey not as strong as his brother). And Paea doesn't play like a NT - he's more of a penetrator than anchor.

    What I don't understand is how Brandon Harris is a 2nd-3rd round pick??? Size?
    +1 with everything here...I do question whether Baldwin's got the best hands but it's not unbelievable....and the Harris thing is weird...I like him better than that...we've seen top CB prospects fall before though...remember Moore and Smith a couple years ago....

    It just shows the guy doesn't know hat he is talking about. Franklin after his post season, is strictly an OG prospect ande doesn't come close to having the feet the other top OT's in the draft does.

    I think that was supposed to be somewhat of a sidenote. So he does'nt have to bulk to be anything but a UT, and he isn't a NT. Or at least, thats how i read it.

    Austin Pettis is not amused at talk of Baldwin having the best hands in the draft.
    Vanden Bosch is a pretty good comparison for Kerrigan. Both high motor guys who might not have the best size, strength or speed.
    For Solder, 6'9 might be too tall. Since he's not a natural knee bender, it would be easy for outside linebackers to get leverage on him. He also doesn't have the best technique yet.

    I love Jonathan Baldwin, but 'best hands in draft'???

    Over the top praise IMO. At best you could only say he has 'some of the best hands', or ' equal to' the other top prospects coming out.

    How does Baldwin have better hands than AJ Green?? That would be like saying Baldwin NEVER DROPPED A PASS. Ever. Even when the ball wasn't thrown directly to him.

    I love to hear what scouts think about prospects because of the added insight the can give usually informed by sharing notes with other professional insiders, but man sometimes they sound really off on guys.

    Solder could bust because he IMO lacks an instinctive feel for playing OT, like Robert Gallery, another guy who had the tools to be elite but couldn't figure it out at the pro level.

    I think that this was transcribed from an interview so there are some grammar issues.

    I just do not see Paea as a NT, bench press is great, but a NT is built from the legs.
