Hopefully he can stay healthy and put pressure on cannon..
the 340 pound monster. Might be Wilson.
I think Ben Bredesen #74 from Michigan looks pretty good as an OG prospect. He's athletic, sticks with his blocks, looks like he has good quickness for pulling and can get to the second level.
he does not have a lot of lateral mobility or quickness. But going forward, he is a beast.
For the or sake of comparison as I watch on YouTube, which prospects do you think have good lateral mobility and quickness?
Check out Nick Harris, Hunt, Wirfs, Hennessey, Cushenberry
quinten Nelson from Notre Dane a few years back is the gold standard.
2020 NFL Scouting Combine winners/losers: OL
Tristan Wirfs, OL, Iowa
Hakeem Adeniji, OL, Kansas
Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
Austin Jackson, OT, USC
Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky
2020 NFL Scouting Combine winners/losers: Tristan Wirfs shines
Wirfs workout was incredible. Thought maybe there was an outside shot but that sailed with the combine. He can stand on his combine and just cheer his teammates on at his proday now.
Yep, his get-off as reflected by his 10-yard split is especially smooth...and those thighs...insane...
Mekhi Becton running a 5.11 40 at 6'6 360 is also one of the most impressive feats I have ever seen at the combine...He's the anti-Orlando Brown Jr...
Others who I think made themselves some money today include Boise State LT Ezra Cleveland,
USC LT Austin Jackson & UConn's own Matthew Peart, who might have to be a RT in the pros...
I do not have Becton or jelks on my draft board for tackles, because I think they are guards.
I have 100 percent faith that, if he is healthy, cajuste will become our starting right tackle after cannon gets hurt again.
As for drafting a tackle, I think we take a Third round flier of Adams of Washington or a seventh round flier on heck from North Carolina.
I have no idea about Cajuste? I think he is a figment of my imagination, I know they drafted him last year but I can’t be sure? Never seen him except in his draft video at his house. Not sure why some think he can just step in and play without any footage or links to his progress?
I'd take Lloyd Cushenberry in the first. Probably my top interior OL.
I was really hoping Ezra Cleveland would stay under the radar, but I think the cat is out of the bag. If you didn't know, he played with turf toe all season. He didn't practice during the weeks and toughed it out on gamedays. He was extremely limited in his mobility and his ability to anchor because of the injury. Now that he is healthy, he is starting to show his true ability. I think there is a real possibility he goes late round one or early round 2 and has a chance to be just as good as the top 4 guys everyone is talking about.
Yes he's at the top of the IOL list
A guy like Ruiz as a plug-and-play replacement for Thuney or possibly Andrews if he's not healthy?
Makes some sense to me.
A 6'7", 365 lb Guard? With 35" arms? Becton should be given every opportunity to succeed at RT before he has to move inside.
I agree with Patriot Missle, Yawndy Cachoo is really just a figment of our imagination.
I wouldn't touch Adams until the second half of Day 3.
Thuney imo although he probably could make a go at any IOL tbh. Very talented. Has a little bit of everything. Obviously versatile but his talent is legit. Possible he's an impact player all along those spots. Not just someone filling in. Powerful going forward but he can really take and play with that power on the move.
I don't understand it either? Tremendous quicks and length. Ridiculous power. Biggest issues imo are improving his hands and weight but he's more than solid already.
Agreed on Adams.
We really could use Scar for another year. Esp if we land one of the big tackles like Wirfs or Becton.
