I dont know why we dont have a one stop NFL draft talk discussion thread, so here it is. Lookin at OGs and OTs tryin to find a way that we can get by with addressing the pick in the 3rd or 4th. Rank Player Pos. Pos. Rank School Class Ht. Wt. Proj. Round 66 Kelechi Osemele OG 6 Iowa State rSr 6-6 333 2-3 Almost liked this guy enuff to suggest him, he does have a cool Nigerian name. He has the arms and hands for a great offensive lineman, but I dont like what the bio on him has to say about his ability to pull: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1243444/kelechi-osemele Overview Osemele's surname means "ancient warrior" in the language of his Nigerian ancestors, and any player who has to had match him with up over the past three years will tell you he tries to live up to that name every snap. His rare combination of size, strength, and absolute aggression make him an NFL offensive line coach's dream. His size and athleticism earned him the team's scout player of the year in his redshirt 2007 season. He played in every game of his redshirt freshman season, starting five contests (four at left guard, one at right tackle). Coaches moved him to left tackle in the spring of 2009, and he pretty well enough to garner second-team All-Big 12 honors from the Associated Press that season, as well as honorable-mention all-conference accolades from league coaches and media as a junior. Osemele's mean disposition on the field will probably cause most teams to project him inside at the next level. Teams using a power-blocking scheme, however, may select him very high in the draft to play tackle, thinking they can coach him up on pass protection technique to improve his ability to stay with NFL speed rushers. Analysis Pass blocking: Aggressive pass blocker with NFL-caliber length and thick frame. Plays with a wide base and locks onto rush ends with very strong hands. Few college defenders can bull rush against his strong anchor or get around his long arms to reach the quarterback. His pass pro technique needs work, however, and he stands up after the snap, lateral quickness is inconsistent, crosses his feet, and gets off balance too easily, giving up the corner against fast ends. Lacks recovery speed to prevent secondary rush if beaten in inside lane. Susceptible to holding calls when reaching or being a bit overaggressive. Run blocking: Possesses a guard build, with a little extra girth in the middle, and is bulldozer as a run blocker inside. Uses strong upper body to latch onto and control any defender getting into his path. Finishes blocks. Agile enough to down-black the tackle then reach a linebacker waiting in the box. Will even jump towards a second target if he sees back coming through the hole. Need to work on getting low in short-yardage situations. Inconsistent cut blocker, more effective when getting down to prevent backside pursuit in run game rather than bringing down rushers on quick passes. Pulling/trapping: Owns short-area quickness to trap, and will negate targets in that role, but is most effective when staying in tight quarters or moving straight-ahead off the snap. Would be limited to hitting first target and could get in running back's way if asked to pull. Initial Quickness: Gets his massive frame moving more quickly than anticipated off the snap. Good explosion from three-point stance. Jumps inside to wall off defenders from inside lanes and is effective taking out tackle's shoulder on zone-blocking plays. Downfield: Lacks great foot speed to adjust to smaller defenders but gives good effort to get to second level or further. Attacks targets and attempts to sustain instead of just punching. Bends at the waist, overextends while holding block in space but is generally effective due to his size and strong hands. Intangibles: Plays with legitimate nastiness, gets after it on every play and will through the whistle if challenged. Smart player who called out blitzes, has changed positions in college, and works hard to improve every year. Combine Invite:Yes Height:6064 Weight:333 40 Yrd Dash:5.36 20 Yrd Dash: 10 Yrd Dash: 225 Lb. Bench Reps:32 Vertical Jump:26 1/2 Broad Jump:08'08" 20 Yrd Shuttle:4.87 3-Cone Drill:7.91 Invited to 2012 NFL Combine as OT He has incredible reach (35??-inch arms and an 85??-inch wingspan) and massive hands (10 3/8 inches) that make him hard to escape. Not sold on him, but makes me think we can get away with finding a OG/T prospect that isnt one of the top 8. And I guess this thread will die off pretty soon, since im gonna be without a inet connection for a while. Feel free to keep this alive and talk about whoever you like to take and where/why.
