        Nice post on Brandon Tate D! I saw him play a few times at UNC and liked him. He could be another one of those guys that ends up being a steal.

          1:40 mark... Tell me this is not vintage TO. Takes the pass on a short slant, breaks the tackle like TO, and runs down the sideline with no shoe. Even the body coordination, movement is very TO like.

          Lol this was pretty sick though, he shook Kenny Phillips in a stand still position with one shoe on and blew right past him and Phillips is a great athlete...That's very impressive to see that type of explosion, so the Tar Heels were rocking Tate and Nicks at WR? No wonder they were good for a change.

            Wow. I was not that familiar with this kid. I think we need to think about PR while filling our needs; this kid would be a good fit. And having him back there with Felix on KR would be solid. I like him a lot.

              I'm sitting here all excited and crap about hyping up Tate...

              Then I read this???

              http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/s...e=NFLHeadlines

              "Jerry Jones says drafting wide receiver not Cowboys' priority"

              Now I'm just trying to find the good in this....

              1. We won't be drafting a WR early at least... and Tate is a 4th-5th round prospect. So that's good.

              and 2. "The good news with our team right now is we can go about any direction we want to in the draft and pick the best player."

              That means if the BPA is a WR, it might be Tate! :D

                Yeah PR would be absolutely solved. He's such a weapon in the offense. He can be used on reverses, hand offs, and he's a knock out deep threat artist. Garrett could get really creative with a guy like this. We've been telling each other that we need a guy who can stretch the field since Terry Glenn left town. The Zampese offense calls for a guy like this. We had one in Alvin Harper in the 90's... but Tate has the potential to be even better. If not for that ACL injury... we'd be talking about a first rounder. We tend to hit our 4th round picks when we grab guys who fall for one reason or the other... I'm hoping Tate is our pick with one of our 2 4ths.

                  He can be a very good reciever too, isn't just a PR, he can be coached up and be a very good wideout but will also have to improve his route running while it is still very raw

                      Ok, my turn.

                      Chris Pizzotti, QB, Harvard



                      Pizzotti may have played in Division 1-AA (FCS), but he was a man among boys in the Ivy League. Pizzotti's competition may have been sub-par, but so were his teammates, at least by NFL standards. He has the smarts, accuracy, and decision-making skills to be a quality NFL quarterback, although he may never get a chance to be a full-time starter. To me, he has Ryan Fitzpatrick/Jason Garrett written all over him.

                      Strengths: Accuracy is very good...Decision-making is excellent as he threw just 4 interceptions to 17 touchdowns as a Senior...Excellent height at 6' 5"...Decent mobility and ability to pick up yardage on the ground (ran 4.83 40 yard time despite having food poisoning a week before)...Can throw on the run...Shows nice touch lofting the ball into holes in zone...Has that essential "moxie" trait quarterbacks need...Team leader and captain with excellent intangibles

                      Weaknesses: Arm strength is questionable, as I saw him underthrow a couple of deep balls...Level of competition will have to be questioned...Not great when facing pressure...

                      In the end, I can't see Pizzotti being much more than a late-round pick because of his low ceiling, but I still think he can be an effective career backup in the NFL, much in the mold of Jason Garrett. I could see Pizzotti coming in and very capably being able to manage a game, as well as be an effective teammate and study partner while on the sidelines and in the film room. I'm not sure that he's as good a prospect as Ryan Fitzpatrick was 4 years ago, but he should make an NFL roster somewhere, although I'm not sure that Dallas is the spot.

                      Here's the video of Harvard's game against Lehigh University...particularly note the TD throw at the 1 minute mark, beating double coverage:

                      http://www.gocrimson.com/newMediaPla...DB_OEM_ID=9000

                      Harvard also has an interesting prospect in Desmond Bryant, a height-weight-speed guy (6' 6", 288, with a 4.92 time in the 40; he also threw up 35 BP reps) who could play as a 3-4 DE...led Harvard with 8 QB hurries in 2008...another guy to consider as a late-round pick/ UDFA.

                        What's with these Ivy League QB fetishes that you have? My taste is soured by the only Ivy League QB I know... Jason Garrett...

                          My dad was a Dartmouth guy, my grandfather and grandmother both went to Harvard. I went to school in the Boston area, and have a bunch of friends at Hahvahd. They're also one of the only teams I get to see play live each year.

                          The only other Ivy League QB I know (other than Garrett and Fitzpatrick) who has made a name for himself in the NFL is Jay Fiedler, who had moderate success for a couple of seasons. And Garrett wasn't terrible as a backup(in fact, I think he was pretty effective, although he never was going to be a starter...

                          On another note, I just wanted to gloat that a graduate of tiny Middlebury College, total enrollment 2200, a DIII program (where I go) is now the Ravens kickoff specialist and distance kicker. I mention this because he is the only Midd grad playing pro sports right now and I feel the need to gloat.

                            With all those connections you should have made something useful of yourself and went to school there.

                            On another note your dreaming...you don't bring in a backup to develop when you have Kitna....I think "if"...and thats a big if...you role the dice on a guy who has the chance to gain a return in the next three years...maybe someone falls and we've addressed our needs...but adding a ivy league backup to play third string makes no sense...guy would be PS at best.

                              Might be a homer pick, but for me I am hyping Jasper Brinkley





                              He arrived from a JUCO in 2006 for USC and immediately solidified his starting spot at MLB for the next three years. His first year he led the team in tackles with 107, more than twice as many as the next defender on the list. Also 79% of those tackles were solo (84 solos). Was made a consensus first team All-Conference selection (a great honor in the SEC).

                              In 2007 he dominated the first few games before being sidelined for the rest of the year by a knee injury sustained playing against LSU.

                              Returned in 2008 and despite being held out of plays on third downs, still had 65 tackles, 42 of which were solos. Was one of the best run defenders I've seen and although he wasn't a third down player this year, he definitely can still be in the future now that is knee is completely healed.

                              Now he is back in shape after the injury, going from 265 lbs during the season this year, to 252 lbs for the combine and regaining his speed posting a 4.72 40, better than both Rey Maualuga and James Laurinaitis, who are also considered to be 3 down LB's.

                              He fits great in the 3-4 as an ILB with his tremendous size and willingness to take on OL and punish ballcarriers.

                              Here he drives Tim Tebow back, not an easy feat:
                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bipvpIfNgJo

                              And here he lays the wood on Micheal Henig of MSU and makes the great solo open field tackle:

                                I like the looks of brinkley, too.
