    Nice hype!
    That's funny D -- I'd almost prefer all black players except for Kicker/Punter/QB/TE and LB is a toss up for me.

    Any WR/Oline/Dline/CB/S/RB should be black for me. I make exceptions for beasts like Columbo though. I love his attitude.

      I'm right with you there. Race plays a factor in genes, so that's my logic.

      As a Hawaii football fan, I'm the same with the Warriors... and that's what they do... they recruit Polynesians at FB, OL, DL, LB...even S. But at the skilled positions, that require speed, they go to the mainland to get Black players.... RB, WR, CB, LB. Our QBs... guess what color? White. It's been the best formula and best kept secret. Nobody will outright say it, but that's what they do.

        Belichick, Parcells, Coughlin and Shanahan might disagree over OL.

          I know this. I love Shanny's ZBS. His system made any RB look good.

            Just stopping in for my yearly promotion of an lllinois State player.

            This year- Tom Nelson, S, 6-0 200 lbs., 40 time- 4.40 (at Northwestern's pro-day)



            Strengths: Is an athletic safety who was a highly productive four-year starter at Illinois State. Is very smart and has great instincts, which helped him consistently be around the ball and make a lot of plays. Is quick and fast, giving him good range against the pass. Reads the QB well, breaks quickly and can get out to the sideline to help in over-the-top coverage. Has the hands to make tough interceptions when he is in position. Does a good job of planting, driving and closing quickly on passes in front of him; gets there in time to make the tackle right after the catch. Comes up quickly in run support; will fight to get to the ball carrier and is a willing tackler. Is a good punt and kick returner and played on all the special-teams coverage units in college.

            Weaknesses: Is not huge and must become more physical against the run. Must improve at tackling bigger ball carriers. Is inconsistent in his ball skills and often does not break up passes when he is in position. Is not an elite athlete and will have trouble covering the top-level tight ends; also will struggle to cover slot receivers.

            Bottom line: Nelson is an underrated safety who has not received a lot of publicity, but he has many of the tools to become a starter in the NFL. His combination of intelligence, instincts, toughness and better-than-expected athleticism make him a versatile defender who is consistently around the ball and making a lot of plays. Nelson won't be drafted as highly as we have him rated, but in time he will prove to be a quality starting safety. He reminds us of the Jets' Jim Leonhard, who came into his own during the 2008 season with Baltimore. Additionally, Nelson will be an impact special teams player as a rookie.

              So go ahead... Hype someone up! Post pics, videos, stats, personal analysis/opinions... the WORKS! :p
              Remember this? It's back for 2009!!!

                Haha! Good work. What the hell happened to Pegues?

                Some guys I was hyping in the 2009 draft:

                (Players I'm convinced I was right about)


                Jairus Byrd (How wonderful would it be to have this guy at FS now? UGH)

                Chris Wells (If he stays reasonably healthy he'll be a top 5 RB in no time IMO)

                Hakeem Nicks (GODDAMMIT JERRUH YOU LET THE GIANTS GET THE NEXT IRVIN AND WE HAVE ROY WILLIAMS INSTEAD AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH)

                Brandon Pettigrew (but who didn't like him?)

                Michael Oher (see Pettigrew)

                Kory Sheets (I know he's done nothing but I'm entirely confident this kid will be a starter, and a good one)

                (players it looks like I was wrong about)

                Brian Robiskie (WTF Rob? It is early though)
                DeAngelo Smith (Relative to his 5th round pick status...but still. He was just horrible)
                Mike Mickens (Relative to his 7th round pick status...I still can't believe him and Smith. WTF, guys?)



                (jury's out)


                Louis Delmas
                Connor Barwin (Guy is an incredible athlete, that's for sure)
                David Veikune
                Rashad Johnson
                Travis Beckum (though I said he should move to WR)
                Jason Phillips
                Jarrett Dillard
                Scott McKillop
                James Davis

                Also, I thought LeSean McCoy would be a turd. He's been good so far.



                2010 edition coming soon.

                  Did you really want us to take Wells, Sheets and Pettigrew? I didn't value RB and TE that high.

                  Interesting that you were hyping Veikune. Go Hawaii!

                    I wasn't saying we should draft them, I just thought they'd be good players. I wanted us to draft Byrd and Nicks.

                    And dude, Sherrod Martin is playing well for the Panthers. 3 INTs and might be a starting FS for them soon.

                      That's cool. I thought we had a chance getting him. Haven't really followed guys.

                        Might as well put the guys I like also.

                        Players who I loved before the draft and I'm convinced I'm right about them

                        1. Beanie Wells RB
                        2. Percy Harvin WR
                        3. Kenny Britt WR
                        4. Mark Sanchez QB
                        5. Jairus Byrd FS
                        6. Josh Freeman QB ( I like more than Stafford but not as much as Sanchez)
                        7. Austin Collie WR
                        8. Brandon Gibson WR
                        9. Brandon Pettigrew TE
                        10. Sammie Stroughter WR

                        Guys I'm wrong about
                        1. Jermey Maclin (to an extent) I still don't think he'll be worth a 1st round pick but so far he's been solid
                        2. Brian Orakpo
                        3. James Laurinitis
                        4. DHB has looked pretty bad so far but it certainly doesn't help catching passes from Gradkowski and Russell.
                        5. Sean Smtih ( He looks like he's going to be a player)

                        Guys I like who the jury is out on

                        1. Larry English
                        2. Ron Brace
                        3. Scott McKillop
                        4. Stephen McGee

                        • I was really wrong about Harvin, didn't think it'd carry over. I didn't care for last years draft at all. This year has to be one of the best we've seen in a while.

                            2009 ALL-BIG 12 SECOND TEAM (COACHES): KR/PR


                            - Leads all active FBS players and holds the Big 12 and OSU record with four career kickoff returns for touchdowns.
                            - 2008 All-America kick returner as selected by Sportsline.com.
                            - 3rd nationally and first in the Big 12 with 29.83 yards per kick return in 2008.
                            - OSU record holder with 2,155 career kickoff return yards.
                            - Big 12 record holder with two kickoff returns in a season.




                            "If you haven’t heard of him yet, Perrish Cox will soon become a household name in draft circles. At 6-0, 198, he’s unlike many corners that have come out in recent years. His athletic ability and lockdown ability really make him a legit 1st round possible cornerback.

                            The main match-up I followed closely for Cox is when the Cowboys matched up against Georgia. Cox was opposite SEC 1st teamer AJ Green, and really managed to shut him down when Cox was in the game. He has long arms and outstanding ball skills to knock the ball away on red-zone fades and deep balls. A really under rated skills for a cornerback that Cox possesses is that he can not only read the quarterback for play indicators, but can use the receivers to tell exactly when the ball will arrive or where the route is going. He can really match-up man to man with bigger receivers because of his size, and rarely needs to be taken out of the game, outside of injury.

                            Cox also is a great tackler. He is great in open field and an either lay a big hit to a receiver, or trip up a running back with great consistency. Because of that skill and his great play in zone, a Cover 2 scheme could be an option at the NFL level. He has had a few off-the field issues in the past and doesn’t have great recovery speed, so those two things may result in him fading on draft boards.

                            Cox, who is as close as you’ll find in college football to a lockdown cornerback, also is one of the best return men in the country. A versatile athlete, Cox will definitely begin his assault draft boards very soon, and if you haven’t watched the Antonio Cromartie clone in Cox, I advise that you watch Cox work against some of the top receivers in the country."

                            OVERVIEW

                            It did not take long for Cox to make an impact on the field for the Cowboys after a U.S. Army All-American prep career in Waco. He returned the opening kickoff of the 2006 season for a touchdown - as a true freshman - becoming the first 'Poke to do that since Barry Sanders in his 1988 Heisman season.

                            Although Cox's punt (12.1-yard avg. on 41 returns, one touchdown in 2006-'07) and kickoff (25.0 avg. on 86 returns, four touchdowns from 2006-'08) return skills are formidable, teams are more intrigued by his potential as a shutdown corner on the edge. He has the size and ball skills to go along with the speed obvious with the ball in his hands.

                            He was granted honorable mention All-Big 12 notice by league coaches in 2008 after putting together his second consecutive season (including 21 consecutive starts) with two interceptions and eight pass breakups. Another excellent campaign on defense and special teams - with some improvement in his ball skills and physicality - could find Cox being selected in the draft's first round.

                            ANALYSIS

                            Read & React: Recognizes routes (and whether he's the primary read) by receiver's body language. Keeps his eye on swing pass in the flat in zone coverage. Reads receiver screens, avoids the block and closes to make the play near or behind the line. A step slow attacking the ball in his zone or to chase plays.

                            Man Coverage: Should flourish as a press cover corner at the next level. Smooth hip transition from backpedal to run down sideline. Best in press coverage, using his length and size to neutralize the receiver, but could be more consistent getting his hands on jersey at the line. Keeps contact with receiver downfield to prevent separation. Often forces quarterback to look in another direction. Will lose his balance and footing on double moves.

                            Zone Coverage: Smooth pedal for his height and usually stays low. Maintains cushion for a few steps. Changes direction easily with receiver. Makes contact with receiver to knock him off his route before letting him go to the safety. Keeps eyes in the backfield in zone to make play on short throws or runs.

                            Closing/Recovery: Good arm length to knock away passes after recovering. Must learn to read receivers' eyes and turn for the ball in man. Can accelerate to the ball when it's in front of him, but has only adequate recovery speed if beaten off the line or on double moves. Only average hands for the interception, and will drop very catchable passes.

                            Run Support: Willing in run support, displaying the toughness to get after a ball carrier. Maintains outside leverage to keep running backs from getting the corner. Despite his height and well-developed upper body and leg builds, does not get off downfield blocks from larger receivers very well. Uses his speed to run around blocks on receiver screens.

                            Tackling: Closes on receivers well when playing off, and will wrap the legs or waist to secure the tackle immediately after the catch. Has the strength to lift receivers off the ground and plant them if in position. Drops his head when tackling in the open field, however, missing if the receiver has any elusiveness.

                            Intangibles: No major character concerns. Starting to take on a leadership role in the secondary. Good work ethic in the weight room, although it does not always translate on the field. Has three children. Solid kick returner with NFL size and speed but must improve his vision to find open lanes. Needs work on his blocking when in tandem return formation.

Additionally, he held Texas' Jordan Shipley well below his season averages by limiting the Longhorn star to six catches for 64 yards and no touchdowns.

                            • Lamarr Houston - Texas Longhorn DT 6'2" 300 lbs.

                              My thoughts: Lamarr Houston was a highly touted player coming out of Colorado Springs. He started his career at DE and played well as a freshman and very well as a sophomore for the Horns. He was asked to bulk up and move inside for his junior year. He trained as a boxer during the 2008 off-season in order to improve his inside techniques. After a slow transition his junior year, he exploded for the Horns as a senior, finishing with 28 QB pressures and 8.0 sacks.



                              July 2, 2009 - The rest of the Big 12 should consider themselves warned. Lamarr Houston is finally feeling comfortable at defensive tackle. After playing defensive end earlier in his college career, Houston moved inside last season to help fill a hole for Texas. A foot injury and his new surroundings kept him from really ever thriving at the new position last season. (ESPNís Tim Griffin)

                              Arguably Houston was the most impressive Longhorn on defense during the BCS Championship game. Although Kindle had the sacks to show for it, Houstonís consistent pressure and run stuffing plays held the Alabama offense in check.

                              PD: 4
                              FR: 2
                              Sacks: 8.0
                              28 QB Pressures


                              Lamarr Houston is currently projected by several draft expert entities to be taken in the 2-3 round range.

                              I see him moving back to DE in a 3-4 scheme. Would love the chance to take him. He is strong enough to take on the run but elusive enough to put much needed pressure from our DE position.
