Welcome To The Combine

Good read. I've always enjoyed Manock's analysis and insight.

Mike Mayock on 2015 NFL draft prospects, scouting combine storylines | The MMQB with Peter King

Mayock likes comparing players he’s seeing now to players he’s seen in the past. NFL Network has cataloged all players at the combine since 2003, and when an apt comparison surfaces from something Mayock sees or from the composite workout of a player, that comparison will be illustrated on air.


A few comparisons Mayock sees now, before the workouts:
Defensive tackle Leonard Williams, USC :: Richard Seymour.

Nose tackle Danny Shelton, Washington :: Haloti Ngata.

Safety/linebacker/running back Shaq Thompson, Washington :: Deone Bucannon.

Outside linebacker Dante Fowler, Florida :: Justin Houston.

Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett, Miami :: Mike Wallace.

Re: Welcome To The Combine

Just once I'd like to see one of these guys compare one of the picks to an absolute bust, lmao

Re: Welcome To The Combine

Good read. Mayock and Gil Brandt are the two guys I like to read when it comes to the combine and the draft.

Mayock called out a couple potential busts in the article.

Safety/linebacker/running back Shaq Thompson, Washington :: Deone Bucannon.
This guy has versatility written all over him. A few on this board wanted the ball hawking safety Deone last year (myself included). Maybe we snag Shaq this time around.

Like this:

Thompson actually could be one of those hybrid safety/linebackers that Todd Bowles used with such great impact in Arizona last year—strong safety on first down, a nickel linebacker rushing some and covering some on second and third downs.
MUCH needed on our defense.

Re: Welcome To The Combine

I can't put my finger on why but this year I just don't care about the combine or the draft, I hope that changes before it shows up but who knows

Re: Welcome To The Combine

Nah its not that, I think its a mixture of the Saints not firing the 3 Stooges (Vitt, Johnson, McMahon), Payton's lack of fire this last season and oh yeah the big guy next to me in my avatar
