Jeremiah Attaochu 6032 252 4.60 ain't a bad thing

Attaochu ran his 40-yard dash times in the late 4.5, early 4.6 range with a 37.5-inch vertical jump,
4.64 short shuttle
7.28 three cone drill.
1.55 10-yard split would have ranked him tops among all linebackers at the combine.

Watching video clips of him sure he can rush a passer but what impresses me is his play down the line of scrimmage when the play is away from him. back side run support is there. Now getting through the was on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage is unreal for a guy this tall. then the adjustment angles as he works his way through the wash are solid to cut off a play. that to me was his strongest talent. reminded me of another former yellow jacket that wore the black and gold. Pat Swilling. the only hole i see in the kids game is coverage skills. then again he probably was not asked to do much of that

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

What I like about Attaochu is that he is a three-down linebacker, and that's why, regardless of rankings, he's a first round selection and a perfect fit for the Saints...

At the Senior Bowl he lined up in multiple positions (MLB, WLB, SLB, DE) and coaches raved how well he listened, trusted them, and progressed...

They were surprised to see him cover running backs out of the backfield as well as he did...

I'm banging the drum for him as the 27th pick if Philly doesn't grab him first...

really you like the kid? never picked up on that

the only area of concern is dropping into coverage. i do not think he has done much of it so it is a coaching issue only.

he is looking to be a spoiler in the media ranking as a player picked in round 1 they missed. then again i think the media read each others reviews and then write there own. very few actually spend a saturday watching games. much less reviewing tapes.

I was not kidding he looked like Swilling the way he moved through traffic. I was amazed. he is probably the only player i have seen this year look that good going through the wash on both sides of the ball.

your man crush might have some serious substance to it.

You definitely on with the group think modal...

I think Fin, Lee and Rubgy were all right in that it's great discussing mock drafts as you get to see, reflect on other's opininons on the team, draft needs, prospects, best fits...

When I go online and research, one of the things I look for in the scripts is the source of basis of the opinions; and you're right that many of them are just regurgitating others material...

But when you read an article that mentions something not seen in other reports whether contrary, or slightly askew, you remember the writer and you google their name and a prospects name and sometimes, you hit gold...

But Attaochu is trending, I hope right to No. 27 where we pick...

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

i do have a problem i admit it and only has gotten worse with dual screen and pip and advancements in remote controls. DVDR is the greatest thing since sliced bread
Playoffs? i gotta get use to using regular season now when talking about it. still like the old bowl system better. traditionalist that i am

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

27
ILB C.J. MOSLEY
ALABAMA
Seems to be dropping in plenty of mocks and its a slight weak spot in the team. Good in coverage and knows how to tackle.Litle scared of his long term health but even if he only lasted the length of his rookie deal he would prove excellent value.

58
WR DONTE MONCRIEF
MISSISSIPPI

Not many of the WR in the draft has more upside.A 21 year old rookie with decent size and skills with plenty of scope for improvemnt.

91
C WESTON RICHBURG
COLORADO STATE

Best centre left on the board.

126
CB AARON COLVIN
OKLAHOMA
(I think he is too good a CB to miss.The injury is a concern but there is enough depth especially with Bailey that if he sits out the year on IR he will have plenty of time to rehab and learn his role before pushing for a start next year.Somebody is going to take the risk


167
RB JERICK MCKINNON
GEORGIA SOUTHERN

Only Thomas and Robinson are contracted beyond this year. Another like Colvin who is could be too good to miss out on. Needs work but could get snaps behind the starters this year and hopefully be ready for the start of 2015.

169
G JON HALAPIO
FLORIDA
Depth and potential

202
WR KEVIN NORWOOD
ALABAMA

Size and speed,would be higher had he played for a more pass oriented team

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

202 WR KEVIN NORWOOD ALABAMA

I like this draft...

Nitpicking:
  • Still don't like taking a Centre that high, but at 91 and it being Richburg, could live with that...
  • Inside Linebacker is not a slight weakness, it was EXPOSED by the other kids in Seattle; Mosley's health, treadwear is a concern...
  • You're right in that Colvin could come in get healthy and build up strength, but taken that high, but I like him for a fifth or sixth and will try that in my mock attack?!?
  • Just Don't like Halapio - I think better, versatile options will be available, like Carolina's Russell Bodine or Vandy's Wes Johnson...
  • Would love to snag Norwood in the latter rounds, but I don't think he'll be there past round 4 or alot of team or going to be sorry...

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

If Norwood goes i would look at the likes of

Mike Davis, WR, Texas
Height: 6-0. Weight: 197.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2014): 3-5.
3/29/14: In 2013, Davis played well for Texas with 51 receptions for 727 yards and eight touchdowns. He could have produced more in his Longhorns career if they had had better quarterback play. As a junior, Davis recorded 57 receptions for 939 yards and seven scores. He put up some production as a sophomore (45-609) and freshman (47-478). Davis has some size and speed to his game. He played in the Senior Bowl, but didn't really impress. Davis didn't run at the Combine.

Cody Hoffman, WR, BYU
Height: 6-4. Weight: 223.
40 Time: 4.65.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: The senior missed the 2013 opener with a hamstring injury. Hoffman recorded 57 receptions for 894 yards and five touchdowns for the year. He hurt his draft stock by landing a one-game suspension, but had impressive games against Wisconsin (7-113) and Washington (12-167). In those games, Hoffman flashed some nice run-after-the-catch ability. He didn't run well at the Combine, so that hurts his ability to rise.

8/3/13: Hoffman was one of the most productive receivers in the nation in 2012, despite inconsistent quarterback play. He caught 100 passes for 1,248 yards with 11 touchdowns. Hoffman had some huge games against weak competition. He was held in check by Boise State and cornerback Jamar Taylor, catching just three balls for 21 yards.

Hoffman had solid production as a sophomore with 61 receptions for 943 yards and 10 touchdowns. He hauled in 42 catches for 527 yards and four scores in 2010.

Hoffman is a big receiver who uses his size well. He is a serious weapon in the red zone as he runs good routes and has excellent hands. However, the big question about Hoffman is if he has enough speed to get separation from NFL defensive backs.

Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh
Height: 6-3. Weight: 198.
40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: Street had an impressive start to the 2013 as he ripped off some big plays against a talented Florida State secondary. The senior totaled six receptions for 141 yards. He beat double coverage on a few throws and showed some run-after-the-catch ability. Street maintained a strong level of play throughout the season with 51 receptions for 854 yards and seven touchdowns. The biggest question mark with him is if he has the speed to get open in the NFL, but he had a solid 40 at the Combine.

8/3/13: Street has been a solid contributor for Pittsburgh the past few seasons. He was second on the team in yards in 2012 and led the Panthers in receptions with 73. The junior totaled 975 yards and five touchdowns. Street had 53 catches for 754 yards and two touchdowns in 2011. He had 25 catches for 318 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman. Street is a big receiver, but he may lack the speed for the NFL.

Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane
Height: 6-0. Weight: 199.
40 Time: 4.64.
Projected Round (2014): 5-7.
3/29/14: In 2013, Grant had 77 receptions for 1,039 yards and nine touchdowns. He ran slower than expected at the Combine.

8/3/13: Grant had a huge junior season with 76 receptions for 1,149 yards and six touchdowns. He lost the 2011 season to a sports hernia. Grant hauled in 33 receptions for 515 yards and four touchdowns in 2010. He needs another big season to help his draft stock.

Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 219.
40 Time: 4.42.
Projected Round (2014): 6-FA.
3/29/14: It isn't easy for small-school players to get invites to the Senior Bowl, especially at the skill positions. Offensive and defensive linemen have more luck getting invited to Mobile, Alabama, but the skill position players are less likely to get invites. Janis was able to buck the trend and participated in the most high-profile all-star game. At the Senior Bowl, he was solid but unimpressive.

Janis was one of the top receivers in the nation in Division II over the past few seasons. In 2013, he totaled 83 receptions for 1,572 yards and 14 touchdowns. Janis has good size for the NFL.


Alex Neutz, WR, Buffalo
Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2014): 7-FA.
3/29/14: Neutz played well in 2013 with 61 receptions for 1,024 yards and 12 touchdowns. Early in the season, the senior was impressive against Ohio State (9-98-1) and Baylor (6-197-1). Neutz totaled 65 catches for 1,015 yards with 11 touchdowns in 2012. He has good size but lacks speed. Neutz didn't work out at the Combine.

Matt Hazel, WR, Coastal Carolina
Height: 6-1. Weight: 198.
40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: Of all the players at the East-West Shrine, Hazel probably helped himself the most. He really impressed scouts, and they compared Hazel to Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts in his ability to make plays. Hazel definitely helped himself. At his size, he showed nice quickness and route-running for a big receiver.

Hazel had 70 receptions for 990 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013. He had a quality Combine performance, too.


Some really interesting receivers that are going to go in the 6/7/UFA area
