Anybody have any thoughts on Baccari Rambo
 
I really liked him at Georgia! Georgia played an attacking 3-4 Defense and he played very well against the run and pass in the SEC.

I watched a couple of the georgia games this year and I like Rambo......if for no other reason than for good conversation.

But to answer your post, I think he would be a good late round pick up if he is still on the board, but he isn't really tall enough to convert to CB, and we have more pressing needs at DE and LB to take him any earlier than like the 5th or 6th round, and I have seen some draft boards with him going in the second or third.

Isn't Rambo projected as a third round pick? If we had or get a 2nd round I can see taking him in the third. We have more pressing needs for our 1st/3rd round selections, mainly O-Line & LB. That's the way I see it anyway...

+1. Yeah, pretty solid in 2012 and I love his ballhawking ability.. something we desperately need in the secondary.

I was really thinking Rambo would be valuable if we didn't get Vacarro in the first round. I watched the kid make plays all over the field. Besides I can't resist the feeling that SP is gonna make a move on Austin in the first round.

Quote:

STRENGTHS: Looks the part. Has a well-developed, evenly proportioned frame well suited to the position.

Intuitive defender who reads the quarterback's eyes well and gets a jump on the ball in coverage. Shows good burst to the ball due to above average acceleration and straight-line speed. Times his leaps/contact with receivers nicely, showing good body control and hand-eye coordination to play physically without drawing the flag.


Locates the ball and has very good ball skills. Possesses soft hands to pluck the ball away from this frame as well as the ability to track it over his shoulder.

Highly aggressive tackler. Looks to lower the boom on unsuspecting receivers crossing the middle. Lowers his shoulder into ball-carriers, though he sees what he's hitting, not lowering his head and spearing the opponent and drawing the flag.


Generally takes good angles to the ball and plays a key role in Georgia's defense as the last line of defense. Made Georgia's secondary calls for at least the last two seasons. Played free safety at Georgia but possesses the size and physicality to play either of the traditional safety roles in the NFL.


WEAKNESSES: Has a tendency to lead with his shoulder rather than wrapping up fully as a tackler, leading to some slip-ups. Generally gauges pursuit angles well but can get caught up in the trash when he gets too aggressive, leading to some cut-back opportunities for backs with vision, burst to exploit.


Does not possess the elite recovery speed that his 16 career interceptions might indicate and is, in fact, a bit of a gambler.


Has twice failed drug tests while at Georgia and was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season due to his most recent violation.

COMPARES TO: Dashon Goldson, FS, San Francisco 49ers: Like the 49ers' standout free safety, Rambo has a tendency to make splashy plays as a pass thief and intimidating hitter but is prone to an occasional breakdown. If he can tighten up his game (and his off-field decision-making) Rambo has the talent to earn Pro Bowl consideration, just as Goldson has done for the 49ers.

I like what I'm reading for the most part. The drug issues will keep us from drfating him tho.
