Colts | Team could pursue Meadows
Fri, 28 Jul 2006 22:00:38 -0700

Tom James, of the Terre Haute (Ind.) Tribune-Star, reports the Indianapolis Colts may pursue free agent OL Adam Meadows (Panthers) now that they have reportedly released OL Makoa Freitas.

ANALYSIS
Positives: Big-boned blocker with a thick chest, legs and thighs … Has developed a very aggressive demeanor, showing strong leg drive to explode off the snap, engage defenders and sustain his blocks … Has good lateral agility moving in the short area … Displays proper arm extension, shuffling his feet and keeping his leg base wide to maintain balance setting up in pass protection … Active with his hands, using them well to create separation and lock out the defender … Has above average strength, showing the ability to uncoil on contact … Displays the leg base and stance to deliver a solid initial punch coming off the snap.
Negatives: Does not sink his hips properly to get a good anchor in drive blocking and will lose his balance when trying to contain multiple defenders … Struggles to make upfield adjustments on the linebacker, thanks largely to a lack of natural foot agility … Plays too high coming out of his stance, preventing him from gaining momentum … Not an effective trap blocker due to difficulties with his mobility and adjustment skills on the hoof … Too straight-legged in his stance, causing defenders to yank and tug on him while getting their hands into his chest … Shorter than ideal to play tackle and his inline blocking skills may be better suited for guard at the pro level

Cowboys | Team releases Horne
Mon, 31 Jul 2006 16:52:55 -0700

Calvin Watkins, of The Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys LB J.J. Horne has been released from the team.

J.J. Horne Grade: 3.26
Position: OLB
Class: Sr
School: Pittsburgh
Conference: Big East
Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 230
40 Time: 4.62
Grading System


BIO: Posted 52/4.5/1 as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Also intercepted two passes and broke up four more.

POSITIVES: Converted defensive back starting to hit his stride at linebacker. Alert, showed improved instincts last season and was constantly around the action. Fast to the flanks and covers a lot of area in pass coverage. Fires up the field in run defense and wraps up tackling.

NEGATIVES: Lacks playing strength and can be blocked from the action by opposing tight ends or fullbacks.

ANALYSIS: A prospect with a good degree of upside potential, Horne is a solid developmental player for the weak side linebacker position.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round

Colts | Robinson waived
Mon, 31 Jul 2006 18:39:58 -0700

John Oehser, of Colts.com, reports the Indianapolis Colts waived LB Dale Robinson Monday, July 31.


Dale Robinson Grade: 3.37
Position: ILB
Class: Sr
School: Arizona State
Conference: Pacific-10
Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 231
40 Time: 4.88
Grading System


BIO: Transferred to Arizona State in 2004 and was awarded All-Conference honors the following two seasons. Was named Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year last year after totaling 115/15/4. Started twelve games as a junior and posted 93/13/4.5.

POSITIVES: Versatile linebacker who plays bigger and faster than his size/speed numbers. Fires up the field in run defense, wraps up ball carriers and brings them down on initial contact. Solid change of direction. Instinctive, quickly picks up assignments and is relentless in pursuit of the ball handler.

NEGATIVES: Does not get great depth on drops. Lacks speed to the flanks.

ANALYSIS: Consistently improving the past two seasons, Robinson has potential on the inside of a 34 defense while also offering possibilities at outside linebacker for a conventional scheme.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round

Bills Cut Veteran Lb PoseyPrint this article | Email this article

August 7, 2006

By SportsTicker


ROCHESTER, New York (Ticker) - Jeff Posey started 47 games over the last three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. But the veteran linebacker didn't even make the team this season.

Posey was released by the Bills on Monday, five days before their preseason opener.

New Bills coach Dick Jauron likely will use Angelo Crowell or Mario Haggan at strongside linebacker after cutting Posey. Crowell showed he was capable of being a starter last season, filling in at middle linebacker when Takeo Spikes suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

Posey, who turns 31 next Monday, recorded 68 tackles and three sacks last season.

A nine-year veteran, Posey signed as a free agent with the Bills in February 2003. He set career highs with 71 tackles and eight sacks in 2002 with Houston.

okay he could be a great backup.

Cowboys | Parham released
Mon, 7 Aug 2006 14:34:18 -0700

Todd Archer, of the Dallas Morning News, reports the Dallas Cowboys released LB Kai Parham Monday, Aug. 7

Kai Parham
Height: 6-3
Weight: 255
40 Speed: 5.02*
Position: Inside Linebacker
College: Virginia
Final Grade: F 5.0


GM JR Scouting LLC Grading Scale/Key



SUMMARY
Parham was a huge disappointment when he was graded because he had such a tremendous reputation in the media. In the six games he got charted, he was very productive in one (Minnesota), productive in two (Florida State and Miami) and unproductive in three (Akron, Duke and Maryland). He is a well built linebacker who definitely looks the part on the 'Hoof', but he lacks the foot quickness, explosiveness and playing speed to make plays consistently in the NFL. He is definitely tough enough and has the natural strength to be a force at the point of attack vs. blockers and as a strong and physical tackler. He is the type of linebacker that is all too easy to find -- tough, smart and highly competitive, but limited by quickness and speed. Overall, Parham will probably be drafted late because of his reputation, but his lack of quickness, athleticism and playing speed is going to make it hard for him to stick in the NFL. His best chance of sticking is to play inside linebacker for a team that plays the 3-4 defense.



STRONG POINTS
Parham is a well built linebacker with the natural strength to stack the point of attack vs.the lead blocker in the hole to clog up the inside run. He has shown the ability to jolt the blocker with punch, stays free and makes tackles on inside run. He has good instincts and usually gets started toward the ball quickly and when he has a clear path to the ball he can chase down ball carriers in pursuit between the offensive tackles. He sniffs out the screen pass well and gets outside to make the tackle right after the catch better than expected. He can cover tight ends/running backs on short routes in man-to-man and looks surprisingly smooth dropping off ball into zone coverage.



WEAKNESSES
Parham is limited athletically by his lack of explosiveness and playing speed. While he can chase down some plays between the offensive tackles, he lacks the play speed to make impact plays in pursuit and most of his tackles away are made downfield. He is stiff in the hips and struggles to adjust and tackle well out in space. While he can cover tight ends/running backs decently on short routes, he lacks the acceleration and speed to stay with them down the field. He does not protect his legs from low/cut blocks well and struggles to move through traffic quickly. Despite good instincts, his aggressiveness causes him to bite on play-action and miss-direction plays too often.


MLB this is a guy who needs just a little time. Over aggressive can be controled.

Cowboys | Team releases Mroz
Mon, 7 Aug 2006 10:07:45 -0700

Jaime Aron, of the Associated Press, reports the Dallas Cowboys have released QB Jeff Mroz
Jeff Mroz Grade: 3.13
Position: QB
Class: Sr
School: Yale
Conference: Ivy League
Ht., Wt.: 6-4, 225
40 Time: 4.94
Grading System


BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after passing numbers of 59.3%/2484/22/14. Played primarily with the scout team before last year.

POSITIVES: Large pocket passer with an NFL arm. Patient, zips the ball into targets or gets rid of passes with a flick of the wrist. Sees the field, finds the open wideout and puts touch on throws. Puts deep passes in front of receivers and lets them run to the ball.

NEGATIVES: Has an elongated motion which slows the release of the ball. Must improve his pass placement and downfield accuracy. Tends to direct passes. Immobile and cannot escape the rush.

ANALYSIS: An intelligent quarterback with the ability to power the ball into receivers, Mroz offers a good degree of upside potential and is a solid developmental prospect.

This is my guy for the practice or nfl europe. Needs time but is more than good enough to be a second stringer in for years to come. Just needs time.

Redskins | M. Brown released
Wed, 9 Aug 2006 16:11:04 -0700

ESPN.com reports the Washington Redskins have released rookie free agent DL Manaia Brown.

Manaia Brown
Brigham Young DT 6-4 310 /

Brown has ideal size for the inside of the defensive line. He is agile with good explosion off the line and has the muscle and quick hands to outmaneuver blockers. He has also shown an outstanding 35-inch vertical jump, creating havoc in passing lanes. However, Brown has not been the presence on the defense one might think because he has a tendency to disappear and lose intensity. He will have to convince scouts that he will play every down.

49ers | Dixon waived
Mon, 21 Aug 2006 19:50:07 -0700

SF49ers.com reports the San Francisco 49ers have waived rookie LB David Dixon.

6-2/235
AGILITY NOTES

Campus: 4.42 in the 40-yard dash...465-pound bench press...44-inch vertical jump...49-inch triple jump.

ANALYSIS

Positives: Has a well-built frame with thick bone structure, broad shoulders, muscular arms, big hands, good bubble and good-sized legs, thighs and calves...Is a strong presence on defense who needs to be accounted for on every play...Plays alert and is quick to read and react, making proper body adjustments on the move...Flashes outstanding strength at the point of attack and can fill the rush lanes with authority...
Has very good stack/tackle ability vs. the inside run...Does a very good job of using his hands to control the blocker, easily adjusting and reacting to the plays in front of him...
Flashes the hand strength to play off blocks...Has the outstanding speed, leverage and range to reach the outside, doing a nice job of avoiding blocks in attempts to shut down the cutback lanes...Can turn and run with good change of direction agility and is a hard hitter who explodes behind his tackles...Has the vision, awareness and turning ability to stay with tight ends and backs in pass routes...Effective when planting and driving out of his breaks, flying to the ball instantly, showing the hip flexibility and control to stay tight on the hip of the receiver...Has the natural hands to reach and pluck the ball away from the body's frame...Has a great initial burst on returns, showing the ability to twist and adjust in attempts to squeeze through tight quarters to gain valid yardage on kickoffs... Has outstanding leaping ability and timing to knock down kicks at the line of scrimmage.

Negatives: Struggles in the classroom, forcing him to sit out the 2005 season due to academic ineligibility...Good at using his hands to fend off blocks, but needs to use his punch with more consistency to shock and jolt the opponent...Makes plays in front of him, but will bite on play-action and fakes when he eyes the backfield too long...Has the speed to cover in one-on-one situations, but must improve his timing picking up switch-offs when working in the zone.

Dixon is a well-built athlete with tremendous quickness and leaping ability. He is a raw talent, but plays with great ball anticipation skills, showing urgency while performing until the whistle. He has a solid frame with powerful upper body strength and loose hips to turn and run on the ball coming out of his breaks.

Dixon plays with very good field vision and natural instincts. He times his leaps to get to the ball at its high point, showing natural hands for the interception. He is also a standout kick blocker, having batted away ten kicks in two seasons. He also has proven to be a dangerous open field runner on kickoff returns.

Dixon has the hand punch to shock and jolt blockers, but needs to use it with more consistency. He is very effective at getting an edge on the blocker, using quick rip and swim moves to rip off the block and generate strong backside pursuit. He has that outstanding speed needed to run sideline-to-sideline and a motor that never quits.

He is a hard, punishing tackler who will strike and wrap with explosiveness. He has the loose hips and feet to come out of his breaks and stay on the hip of the receiver in man coverage. He will bite a bit on play-action when he peeks into the backfield too long, but has the recovery speed to get back into the play.

Dixon plays with good confidence and is not afraid to mix it up in the trenches, but also comes with glowing praise from both coaching staffs due to his work ethic. He might not have the major college experience of A.J. Hawk, but one look at his production and athletic agility tests scores and you can see that someone will unearth a tremendous, but raw talent with a blank slate to mold within.

practice squad guy. but great upside
