Day Two

Back to Day One.


Derrick Brown- 6-5, 325, #5,



11/2016: A&M doubled him on 8 of the first 10 plays on the opening drive. He plays a lot of NT, and DT on 2-man fronts. He is the guy that run teams have to deal with first. His job is really to absorb the doubles, but he still makes plays and garners stats. When he isn’t double he gets to the QB, and the QB doesn’t recover quickly when he hits them.
Nice job splitting the double in the rush, when he gets a chance. He gets angled out of the play to easy sometimes, but then can throw the OG to the ground. He has to move to the ball better. Nice rip right up the gut.
He is a scary sight when he stunts outside and the ORT doesn’t pick him up. Nice job timing leap to knock the knock the ball down. He is relentless on the field. 

2017: Starter at defensive tackle … 56 tackles for season ... 6 tackles, sack, 1.5 TFL against Georgia Southern … sack, 2 TFL at Clemson … 3 solo tackles, PBU vs. Mercer … 3 tackles vs. Mississippi State … 6 tackles, 2 TFL vs. Ole Miss … 6 tackles at LSU … forced a fumble, 7-yard sack and 2 tackles at Arkansas … team-best 7 tackles at Texas A&M … 4 tackles, sack vs. Georgia … 5 tackles, TFL vs. ULM … forced an Alabama fumble … 4 tackles, TFL in SEC championship ... blocked a UCF field goal attempt in the Peach Bowl ... SEC Academic Honor Roll and Academic Top Tiger ... SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council for football.



*Trevon Diggs- 6-2, 199, #7



12/2017: He is garnering a lot of attention from the NFL. People seem to think he is going to jump. He really looks the part, and is an extraordinary athlete. The injury could hurt him. He broke his foot. But if he gets back before the Playoffs, he will be a 1st Round pick. I would be chocked if he declares. But stranger things have happened.

**Quinnen Williams- 6-4, 295, Rs-Soph, #92 



02/2018: He is a Redshirt Soph, who is highly unlikely to declare for the Draft this year. However, he has been Alabama's best DL so far this season. He has been harassing QBs relentlessly. He is the player I thought Raekwon Williams was going to be this season.

Sophomore (2018): Powerful defensive lineman who redshirted in his first season at UA ... gained valuable experience on special teams and in a rotational role on the defensive line as a redshirt sophomore before working his way into the starting nose guard spot this season ... totaled 8.5 tackles for loss (-30 yards), good for second on UA, and leads the Tide with nine quarterback hurries to go with a safety and one pass breakup ... added 33 tackles and 1.5 sacks (-8 yards) to his 2018 line ... named a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award, presented annually to the nation’s top defensive player ... 

earned Midseason Second Team All-America recognition from the Associated Press ... selected as the Bednarik Award Player of the Week for his efforts against Missouri ... named SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week for his play in Orlando against Louisville ... selected as one of the defensive players of the week by the Alabama coaches for his efforts against Louisville, Arkansas State, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee. Louisville: Dominant force up front in his first career start ... tied for the team lead in tackles with six, 3.5 of which went for a loss (-12 yards), and added a quarterback pressure and one pass breakup ... set career-high marks in tackles and tackles for loss ... helped limit the Cardinal rushing attack to only 16 yards on the ground ... selected as the SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week and added defensive player of the week honors from the UA coaches for his play in Orlando. Arkansas State: Totaled two tackles and a quarterback pressure against the Red Wolves ... earned defensive player of the week recognition along with his fellow starters on the defensive line following the home opener. Ole Miss: Led the Tide defense in tackles with six, including half a tackle for loss (-2 yards) ... added one quarterback pressure to his totals.



Mitch Hyatt-, 6-5, 305, #75



08/2018: He rebinds me of Matt Light. Which has been a flaw in thinking of many Pats fans. Light was a freak at OLT. Guys his size and athleticism are not natural OLTs. Comparing him to Light is really a negative. He has a chance to be an OLT, but a Day Two chance. Coming back for his senior season could move him up from Day Two Day One. 

He made a good decision staying in school. "The thing I like about these guys, they wanted to know why they weren’t rated as a top-10 pick," Swinney said about Hyatt, Bryant, and Ferrell. "And I got them the information, and they’re like, 'All right.' They didn’t get mad, they were like, 'I’m fixing to go work on that and get better.'" Bryant and Ferrell also need to turn their elite athleticism into stats. 
He is effect moving to either side to block in the run game. Terrific sealing the DE outside with leverage and his arms. Doesn't have the longest arms, which will hurt him more in the NFL. Very similar size as Light. Plays with good intensity, but not the manic intensity of Light that let him play OLT for 11 seasons. 

All three Juniors made good decision staying in school. "It really wasn’t hard for me; I just didn’t feel like I was ready," Hyatt said about staying in school. "I didn’t think I was physically prepared and just wanted to make the most of my college experience. and really just develop physically and mentally. It really wasn’t that hard of a decision for me to come back and finish up my education and get better." He will go higher in the 2019 Draft than he would have in the 2018 draft.
Moves into the DE low, and likes to try and shove and push him up. When it works the DE is done. Nice job sliding outside to pick up the blitzing OLB. He will square up in pass pro sometimes, and can get beat outside. He doesn't always kickslide moving backwards. Blocks down with some great power sometimes. 

07/2018: Vs Alabama: Great job turning and sealing the DE outside on runs away. His feet look more consistent this year. When he looses the hand fight, he looses the edge. Very nice power going low on short yardage. He might be an OLG in the NFL. Tough to not see Light when you watch him. Needs to improve footwork in kickslide. When eh seals the big D-end outside, it is tough for the DE to get back into the play. 

"Just take the coaching," Hyatt said. "When you come out here, they’re throwing a lot at you. You’re new to a lot of it and you really just have to take it all in and absorb it and try not to get frustrated whenever they’re coaching you. It can be hard, but you’ve just got to keep going with it."

He will slide inside too much sometimes and give the rush to the DE. He played very well in the Champ Game. Hand was able to rag doll him a few times, but he still held onto his shirt. He does get off balance against great speed sometimes, but can hang on for dear life just long enough to save his QB. Nice job absorbing the impact of the big D-End and still holding on.

07/2018: Vs FLA ST: Nice balance. If you can't get him off balance you can't beat him. He is so good at sitting low in his kickslide, with arms extended, and keeping his quick feet moving. Great job sealing the DE outside on inside runs. Great job absorbing the big punch, and not losing any position. Plays on the edge of out of control a lot, like Light. When he looses control of his feet he looses his balance. 

07/2018: Vs Louisville: He has a nice quick twitch back right off the snap to protect the edge. Nice awareness. He can slide inside to grab the DE; Then reach and punch the LB twisting behind the DE to the outside and stop him (amazing;). He can play with some nasty, and cut a DE to the ground. Nice job with leverage and position. Nice quick hands in double jab into DE chest. Nice and smooth pulling forward to 2nd level to hit an LB. Nice job consistently turning the OLB outside. He can take a misstep, and still shove the speedy OLB past the QB. 

07/2018: Vs NC ST: He knows when to turn and bail, and shove the elite D-end past the QB. Nice kickslide verse speed. He has good technique sliding out and up field. He is terrific pulling to the left and taking out the D-end on the opposite side of the line. Smart and aware. He can jam the DE inside with one hand, and still slide outside and pick up the blitzing DB. Terrific job hopping inside, and sealing the DE outside on inside runs. He has some nice quick feet. Knows how to use his hands. Great technician.

Dalton Risner- 6-5, 308, #71



11/2017: He has some interesting quicks off the snap. Nice long arms. Plays ORT, so how does he go in the First? Great job stepping inside and stuffing the 5-Tech. WVU stopped rushing his lane in the 2nd half. Nice job catching the DE rushing up field, and driving him back on the run inside. He has some power to his game.

He will have to show that he can play OLT at the Senior Bowl if he wants to go in the 1st. He has all the traits to play OLT in the NFL. But he still has to prove it. Great long arms. Smooth sliding backwards. He really looks the part, and has shown he can play the part on the right side. I have absolutely no doubt he is an NFL OT. He has to prove to me that he can play OLT at the SB. It will be a huge opportunity for him.

9.7 ORT


*Julian Love- 5-11, 193, #27


Notre Dame

09/2018: He can get a little mixed up in the zone, but still make the play in coverage. Plays Off a lot. He has some twitch inside. He looks like he has the physical talent to play CB in the NFL. Plays Off a little too much for my taste. Is he hiding speed, or is it scheme? He can be taken out of run game, because he is busy shadowing the WR, which I kind of like. 

He can line up on the Slot guy, and is quick enough to burst outside at the snap and take the X. He can really give the WR a big hit when the ball arrives, to try and knock it out. Plays his zone position well. Elite feet moving backwards. He can sky up and knock down the back shoulder fade in the Endzone, over the bigger WR (Stanford 2017, but then he gave up the TD on a terribly under thrown ball, which he couldn't get to or see).  

He has that knack for arriving as the ball arrives. He can get pushed back by the big blocker, and hold his feet as he stays in front of the RB. Then dive into the RB off the blocker and make the tackle. He is a tough little fighter. Takes on the blocking WR well. Not a great run defender. You are not going to get a lot of tackles from him. 

Tape: He has that great knack for arriving as the ball arrives (:08). He got into great position, and then dived out and knocked the ball down (:14). He is not going to give a lot in run defense (:28). He was a hair slow on the quick Out (:35). But he is still there an instant after the ball arrives.

He can obviously play on both sides (:56). But he plays mostly on the QB's right. He can turn and run with most WRs (1:04). Great look at the snap in his hips as he turns outside. Then the suddenness in a little quick burst forward after (1:14). Then he gets in the WR's hip pocket and stays there.

He is strong, and he is smart. He can stack and shed the WR, and make the tackle when the RB runs right at him (1:25). But he is not going to charge into the pile, or blockers, to make the tackle (1:32). Great feet and speed moving backwards (1:41). Great understanding of position, and reads the WR as well as anyone I've seen. He keeps his feet moving, and arrives as the ball arrives (2:05). Watch the great stop and burst forward (2:14). Then his head is up and he is tracking the ball. I'd like to see him try and catch it once in a while. But extending his inside hand knocking it down works too. 



*Ryan Finley- 6-4, 210, #15 , 6th-year Senior



11/2016: I don't know who what when or where the Pats will take a QB in this Draft, but I know they will. So I thought I'd start off with Finley. Who has two essential qualities: the ability to take a big hit and complete the next pass, and the ability to come through in the clutch. 

He is a fifth year Graduate transfer with another year of eligibility left. "I really haven't heard much actual information about that, Finley said about his Draft prospects. "I’ve tried to focus on the season and when that happens, it happens." So he could still stay in school, though he did get his Masters this year. 

Nice timing on slants. Stares down his first option too much sometimes. He does a great job seeing the play is over, and charging forward for whatever he can get. "I'm excited about the opportunity either way, to leave for the NFL or to come back," Finley said. "To finish my senior year, I heard somebody say it's a champagne problem. So I'm excited about the opportunity I have." Smart and poised in the collapsing pocket. 

He garnered 3,200 yards and 16 TDs, while completing 63.9% of his passes and only 6 INTs. "It’s probably going to kill me to watch the film," Finley said after he completed 80% of his passes for 341-yards and 3 TDs against Marshall. "There are a lot of plays, personally I wish I could have back." Perfectionist who is never happy with his performance.  

Takes to hard coaching. "He’s hard on himself because I’m so hard on him," Drinkwitz said. "He missed the first three throws. He needs to make those throws, and he knows it. But he did rebound really well." He always seems too. 

He will toss the option a little late sometimes. "Ryan is playing the same way he has the last three games," NC ST HC Dave Doeren said. "He’s managing the offense. He’s giving his receivers a chance. He’s not making mistakes with the ball and hurting our team. [He's throwing] very accurate, throws catchable balls, very intelligent. He’s having a heck of a year." Very nice feet in the pocket. 

When he leans to a side he will loose a little control. When he rushes it he can lose his mechanics and accuracy. He can really throw a great touch pass down the sideline to his outside WR. He keeps the ball a little too much on option runs. Knows when to throw it away. He does a great job throwing the high pass to his tall WR, so the little CB can't touch it. 

He has some serious clutch in him. "I think it’s just all up to that player and what they feel," Finley said. "Whether they want to come back or whether they don’t. Whether they feel they have more to prove at this level or not. I don’t know. We’ll have to cross that bridge when it’s over." He comes through in the 4th quarter when his team needs him. 

He can make the great throw with a blitzer coming straight up the gut to kill him, and he knows he is going to get hurt. Nice accurate thrower over the middle on the 3rd level. He has a great arm. When he is hot he looks like the best QB in the Draft. He can take the big hit and complete the next pass. 

AS A RS - JUNIOR (2017): Named to the Academic All-ACC team for his performance last season. He earned a 3.889 GPA while pursuing a Master’s degree in liberal arts. After one season at NC State, ranks 15th in school history in career passing yards (3,059), tied for 14th in touchdowns (18). Has also posted the third-best career completion percentage (.604) in school history.
AS A RS - SOPHOMORE (2016): Threw for 3,059 yards in 2016, the sixth-best mark in school history. 18 TD passes in 2016 tied as the 11th-best single-season mark in school history. Led the the nation completion percentage through the first few games.  No NC State QB had more attempts as a starter before throwing his first INT (139). Led the Wolfpack to two scores in the win over William & Mary while posting the best completion pct. (.809) for an NC State QB in his debut as a starter. Transferred from Boise State in the summer of 2016 after earning his degree in three years. Was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.
AS A SOPHOMORE (2015): Appeared in three games before suffering a season-ending ankle injury against Idaho State. Went 46-for-70 for 485 yards and a touchdown with four interceptions. In first career start vs. Washington, went 16-for-26 for 129 yards and an INT. Threw his first touchdown pass of the season at BYU, going 25-for-38 for a career-best 297 yards.
AS A RS - FRESHMAN (2014): Appeared in five games, completing 12-of-27 for 161 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT. Came off the bench in the third quarter at Air Force, going 12-for-25 for 161 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Saw action at Wyoming, did not attempt a pass but rushed 2-15 yards.

9.6 QB


  Joe Jackson, , 6-5, 255, #99 



12/2017: He is a great athlete who really looks the part. But doesn’t always play the part. They have him in a bit of a conservative defense. He stacks and sheds a lot. I think he would be better in the NFL if he allowed to just go upfield more. He needs to affect the game more.

He has good size, and he is great at using his hands to shed the OLT, but he slows just a little too much when he does. He does find the ball though. He tends to be the second or third guy there. My question is can he find the ball without that hesitation he has at first. Can he be a burst up field guy that can find the ball as well. 

2018 (Junior): Started season opener against LSU (Sept. 2) and finished with three tackles and one PBU...Had one tackle and 0.5 TFLs in start vs. Savannah State (Sept. 8)...Started and finished with 1.5 TFLs and three total tackles in win at Toledo (Sept. 15)...Posted 2.0 tackles for loss (six yards), 1.5 sacks and four total tackles in start vs. FIU (Sept. 22)...Recorded five tackles (three tackles) and 6-yard sack in start vs. North Carolina (Sept. 27)...Tied career high with 2.0 sacks and finished with 2.5 TFLs and four total tackles in start vs. Florida State (Oct. 6)...Started and had seven total tackles and 1.5 TFLs at Virginia (Oct. 13)...Made eighth straight start of season at Boston College (Oct. 26), finishing with three tackles and 0.5 TFLs.



*Beau Benzschawel- 6-6, 317,  #66



11/2018: Good job pulling behind the OC, and knocking the DT down. Great playing at arms length in pass pro. They love to run behind this guy. For a team with five alleged all-Americans it is Ben they want to run behind. 

I love how he consistently moves forward in run game. He is so squat and low that he plays with great natural leverage. Nice job grabbing shirt inside the numbers, and holding on. He can grab the DT in the rush, and torque him to the ground with power from the hips. He is strong as an Ox. 

2018 Preseason: Second-team All-America (Sporting News), Outland Trophy watch list.
2017: First-team All-America (Sports Illlustrated), third-team All-America (AP), first-team All-Big Ten (consensus).
2016: Second-team All-Big Ten (coaches), third-team All-Big Ten (media).
Career: Has started 36 consecutive games, including last 30 at right guard.

9.7 OG


David Edwards- 6-7, 315, #79 



11/2017A strange thing happen on the way to have five 1st round picks on the Wisconsin O-line. None of them have looked like a 1st Round picks early in the season. Benzschawel  has played the best, and he is an ORG. It is very tough for a team to take an ORG in the 1st .

He still is ending up on the ground too much. Winovich threw him to the ground on the first three plays against Michigan. He seems to end up on the ground more than he does at the end of the play, but he mostly holds on and keeps his man out of the play.

2018 Preseason: Second-team All-America (Sporting News), Outland Trophy watch list.
2017: First-team All-America (AFCA), second-team All-America (FWAA, Walter Camp),
third-team All-America (AP), second-team All-Big Ten (consensus), Academic All-Big Ten
Notable: Former high school quarterback began career at UW as a tight end before moving to offensive line prior to start of training camp in 2016.
Career: Has played on 26 career games, starting 19 at right tackle.



*Anfernee Jennings- 6-3, 262, #33



09/2018: When he is lined up at OLB: he can take on the TE, make the FB miss, and grab the RB trying to get outside. He always seemed to be pushing the TE back on the edge, and then slicing inside and grabbing or hitting the RB as he slashed inside of him. I love how he kept going, even when the RB got by him. He will turn and chase, and grab the RB from behind and help his DLs bring him down.

"He had a fantastic game [against Clemson in playoffs]," Saban said. "I think everybody was responsible for this victory because everybody took ownership for it. Everybody took ownership for their role, whether it was a kickoff cover team or the defense. But Anfernee Jennings certainly played an outstanding game."
He can stack and shed the ORT at the point, and grab the RB's feet behind the LOS. He has a great straight arm jam with his inside arm that can turn the blocker. He does not let RBs get outside of him on the Edge. Nice job holding the point, and sending the RB inside. 

He miss the Champ Game after he hurt his knee against Clemson. "He has a sprained knee," Saban said. "We don’t know what his status will be for the next game." 
He will line up on either side standing up and with his hand in the dirt. When he put his hand down, he got doubled a lot. He needs to be a little slipperier in 2018 in the rush. Nice hand fighter on the edge, but he has to shed a little quicker. Explosive up field burst in the rush set him apart for me. He needs another move off speed to power in the rush. 

"We basically have Anfernee and Christian Miller, who have been starters around here," Saban said. "Past that, we have Ben Davis and two freshmen. That's basically what we have. If we had more inside linebackers, Josh McMillon could play the position. But I'm not sure we could afford to move him. So we're very thin at those two positions right now."

He does a great job not letting blockers grab his shirt. He is exceptional at using his hands to keep OLs hands off his shirt. When they let him explode off the snap, he is three yards into the backfield before the other DLs can shed a block. Terrific inside move on stunt. He has to turn talent into production this year.

*Will Greer- 6-2, 214, RS-Sr, #7



10/2018: He has great balance in the pocket. He trusts his line, and let’s his WRs get open, and throws to them over the middle, on time. Love when he three steps, plants the back foot, and throws. Nice job leading his WR away from the CB, and make him reach out for the ball or it is incomplete. 

He has such has great knack for throwing the ball on the opposite side of the body as the DB. That is my number one trait. I’m not saying he is Stafford, but he reminds me of him, He is similar in size and build. At this point he is my Number two QB.
He has played a lot of college football. He transferred from FLA, so you know he has a high recruit. He actually started six games as a Redshirt Freshman and played well. But then he tested positive for drugs and was banned from the team.
He sobered up, and transferred to WVU. "He's not a guy who's going to wow you with his athleticism," a scout said. "But he will probably be a solid starter." He plays in that wacky spread offense.
He didn’t want to leave FLA, but found a home in WVU. "The place I'm in now is great," Grier said- "It makes a lot more sense." He stands out to me, because he said he tries to copy everything that Brady does, so we know he is smart. 
2016 (r-So.): Sat out to fulfill NCAA transfer requirements.
2015 (r-Fr. : Florida: Played in six games and started five
Completed 106-of-161 passes for 1,204 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Long completion of 77 yards. Season-high 283 yards against Tennessee. Threw for 200 or more yards in three games and 250 or more yards in two. Finished with 20 or more completions in three games. Completed multiple touchdown passes in four games
Had 36 carries for 116 yards and two touchdowns with a long of 38 yards. Threw for 271 yards on 24-of-29 passing and four touchdowns in win against Ole Miss. Completed 20-of-33 passes for 208 yards against Missouri. Had 283 yards on 23-of-42 passing and two touchdowns against Tennessee with a long of 63 yards. 
2014 (Fr.) – Florida: Did not see any game action and redshirted. 

Enrolled in January.

9.6 QB


*David Montgomery- 5-11, 219, #32


Iowa ST

07/2018: Played in a shotgun offense. Runs a nice pattern through the line, and breaks out with some nice quicks. He will line up in the slot when they go Empty. He can give a great chip to the D-end, and then slide outside to the flat. Shows his size in pass pro. He will chip on the DT as well. He will hit the blitzing ILB in pass pro, then slip off and be wide open over the middle. Regularly goes out in pattern after he chips. Doesn't stay in to block completely very much, but chips and goes a ton. 

"He was probably as good as we’ve seen (as a prospect). Yet he was the guy who was sprinting from drill to drill, almost daring me, 'how could you not offer me a scholarship?' To see those traits," Iowa ST HC Campbell said. "The football piece was fun to watch. But the attitude, the character, the mental fortitude, that was palpable to watch and that was what really separated him so much in that camp. It was really impressive."

More smooth than twitchy. Nice one cuts. He likes to jab his foot forward, and then change direction quickly and smoothly. Makes guys miss a yard or two or five away with that move all game. Runs through arm tackles. Excellent vision and runs with his head up, and makes moves on defenders yards away from him. Deceptive speed outside, and does a great job cutting back behind his blockers.

"I think with how physical I am, they forget how swift and full of finesse I am as well,” Montgomery said a little self-centeredly. "I can run through people. But I can shake people too. I like having that extra dimension for myself."

Very shifty in the backfield.  Plays faster than he looks. Smart runner who know how to set up his blockers, and cut behind their blocks. Nice straight arm on ILB blitzing into him. Strong guy who runs with great natural strength. Not easy to bring down, because he also has some great COD. Great size. Nice jab inside before he bounces it outside to trick the DLs.

9.7 RB


Jaquan Johnson- 5-10, 190, #4



12/2017: Phenomenal talent. But he is undersized. He will not be a SS in the NFL. He seems to have the range to play FS. He can really move on the field. So much of his Draft status will be speed, and how he can cover Slots or TEs. A lot of guys like him more than I do. But he ain’t a 1st. He should be a solid Day Two guy. 

They do line him up as a Cover One FS. They will also line him up in the Slot to cover the big TE. He can give them a big bum, but will also get beat off the bump by a TE like Sweeney. He does have some good recovery speed on bump and runs in the slot. He will also line up behind the LB, like a Sam or Will. They play him a lot like the way the Pats play Chung. They move him all over the D. He seems to line up in a different spot every play. Nice blitzer up the middle. Give signals in secondary. 
2018 (Senior): Started season opener against LSU (Sept. 2) and finished with game-high 11 total tackles (three solo)...Started and had four total tackles in win over Savannah State (Sept. 8)...Added first blocked field goal of career vs. Tigers to help Miami preserve shutout in second half...Posted seven tackles (four solo) in start at Toledo (Sept. 15)...Missed games vs. FIU (Sept. 22) and North Carolina (Sept. 27) due to injury...Returned to field in win against Florida State (Oct. 6), starting and totaling team-high 10 tackles...Tied for team lead and career high with 12 total tackles (four solo) in start at Virginia (Oct. 13).
2017 (Junior): Started all 13 games and was among Miami's top defensive performers...Led team with 96 total tackles (54 solo) and added 3.0 tackles for loss and one sack...Tied for team lead with four interceptions and totaled 57 interception return yards...Added four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries...Earned ACC Defensive Back of the Week three times...Walter Camp Player of the Year semifinalist.



Trey Adams- 6-8, 327, #72



09/2018: He did not play against Auburn in the first game of the season. He is going to have to drop if he can't get on the field. 

07/2018: Vs Cal: Nice job shadowing the DE with his hands and feet. Nice adjustment when he lines up wide to pick up OLB. When the OLB doesn't blitz, he slams into the 5-Tech with some nice force. He is so smooth in pass pro that it is tough to see him get in trouble very often. Excellent technique. Nice job shoving OLB inside, and then sliding outside to pick up the blitzing DB. He can make it look easy sometimes. Great blocking down on the DT.

"I'm not too worried about the NFL right now," Adams said. "I'm just worried about this team, worried about making the o-line better. I'm worried about tomorrow's practice. I'm worried about, 'What am I eating for dinner?'"

07/2018: Vs Oregon: Nice power and balance. He has the feet, but he plays a little high, and can lose leverage sometimes. When he get low in the run game, he can power the D-end back five yards. He stones the bigger D-ends at the line like they are stuck in quicksand. He has some suddenness bursting back in pass pro. When he gets low, he can impact the edge guy with some serious power. He can get beat by the outside speed on a blitzing OLB.

"We're real good friends. We're similar in mindset. Similar in what we do off the field. We both like the outdoors, we like to have fun" Adams said about ORT McGary. "I think he's a great counterpart to me. We're similar body types, similar players. So it's been fun to grow with him, fun to work out with him. Great guy." 

07/2018: Vs Penn ST: When he gets his hands on a rusher they are done. Nice balance with arms up moving backwards. He will miss on the backside, when he tries to shove the DE and doesn't move his feet. Great job moving his feet when he locks onto the rusher. He can miss his initial hit on runs to his side, and then step inside and recover with a great shove on the D-end. 

07/2018: Vs Rutgers: He likes to move forward into rushers a little more than I like. "Obviously, there's no substitute for experience. You've got to have some," Huskies OL coach Sam Huff said about Adams and McGary. "Size is one thing. But when you have guys who can move like that, it's very impressive." He snaps over to the DT as quick as anyone I've seen when the DE stunts inside behind him. He zone blocks angry sometimes.

2016 Second-Team All-America (Football Writers)
2016 ESPN Mid-Season All-America First Team

Lukas Denis- 5-11, 185, #21



07/2018: Denis is CB sized, and has to add weight. He has top character that cannot be questioned. He flies up fast once he reads run. He is not shy in the run game. Not afraid of running into traffic and pileups in run game. He has that knack for the turnover. He will dive at the WR who catches the ball in front of him. He can punch the ball out, while diving, when he sees it in his hand. 

Do you know who led the NCAA in INTs. That's wrong. It was Denis. He has terrific hands catching tipped balls. He plays the slot corner in 3-wide sets. He can get beat on the double move. Might not be a Corner. Covers the inside post from the slot better. He can play the deep Cover One Safety on 3rd and long, and get all the way across the field, and forward, and make a play on the WR.  
Great ball skills and anticipation at FS. He has better ball skills than a lot of the WR's he played against. He played a lot of Cover One and Cover Two. He was a true Free Safety at BC. He plays a lot of Cover One. His ability to get sideline to sideline helps BC be very aggressive up front. He gets left alone out in no man's land a lot. Very underrated player. He has great hands stepping in front of receivers to snag the ball. 

Nice feet moving backward. He is small, but can still charge into the backfield and find the RB for the TFL. He will fall for the playaction when he lines up inside like Chung playing LB. Excellent job reading the QB's eyes, and getting to either side to follow them. Very good tackler in traffic.

He has some nice twitch to stay in the way of the WR over the top. He is a good tackler, who can bring down the bigger guys. Nice job jumping in front of the big WR, and smacking the ball down. He is a physical tackler on the edge. He stepped in front of so many WR's last season to steal the ball that it was amazing. Size should keep him out of 1st, but if he shows he can cover better in the slot, he could slip into the First. 
2017 (JUNIOR): Walter Camp Football Foundation Second Team All-American … All-ACC second team selection … tied for second nationally with seven interceptions … led BC and ranked 17th nationally with 10 pass breakups … tied for third on the team with 83 tackles … made the move from cornerback to free safety after the 2016 season … first career start in the win at Northern Illinois (9/1/17), finishing with four tackles and second career interception … six tackles and a forced fumble against Wake Forest (9/9/17) … totaled a then-career-high seven tackles and an interception against Notre Dame (9/16/17) … best performance of his career at No. 2 Clemson (9/23/17), totaling a career-high 13 tackles (also a game-high) along with his third interception of the season and a forced fumble … career-high two interceptions in the victory over Central Michigan (9/30/17) … also contributed six tackles and a pass breakup in the win over the Chips … 10-tackle performance against No. 16 Virginia Tech (10/7/17) … six tackles and two pass breakups in BC’s 45-42 victory at Louisville (10/14/17) … led BC with seven tackles and one pass breakup in the 41-10 win at Virginia (10/21/17) … seven tackles in BC’s 35-3 win over Florida State (10/27/17) … five tackles vs. No. 23 NC State (11/11/17) … sixth interception of the season and two pass breakups in the win over UConn (11/18/17) … seventh interception of the year and six tackles in the 42-14 victory at Syracuse (11/25/17).

He was the best sideline to sideline Cover One Safety in College last year. Watch this. He slides over to the seam (on the opposite side of the throw). When the slot guy goes in motion (:01). He played a lot of Cover One, but he also lined up in the Slot as the third Corner (:25). He is usually a sure tackler. He played the option perfect, but slipped off the tackle (:38). He is not always great as the 3rd Corner (:45). However, he has good coverage here against the big WR. The QB made a good throw, but Denis stopped right after he caught it.

Cover Two. He played over the inside WR. Then burst back when he saw the outside WR go deep (1:20). He finally shed the bigger blocker and made the tackle (2:08). He is usually a great sure tackler.

He has the smarts, understands the defense better than anyone else, and is rarely out of position (1:31). He protected the outside so Winbush couldn't get the sideline. Then stepped inside to help with the tackle (2:08). He got a good jam on the Slot guy (2:30). Then he burst back into the zone to cover the WR crossing. 

This is such a great look at him playing the Cover Three Zone (3:10). Then it is only a matter of time. The way he plays his position it is only a matter of time before he picks one off (3:27). That is how you play Cover One Safety, with one eye on the QB (3:39). He has elite awareness in coverage, and the hands of a WR (though he does tend to body catch interceptions;). 

Okay, I wasn't going to do this. But watch this coverage. HE IS IN THE OPPOSITE SLOT. He gets all the way through traffic to stop the TD. That is great coverage (5:04). He is in coverage on the slot guy on the opposite side. Watch the speed he has to make the play (5:25). Back in the slot, he stepped up. Then he read it, and made the tackle in the hole (5:43). That is pretty could press coverage for a FS, even if it was a run (6:01). Okay, I'm not gonna do the whole game. I just wanted to do some quick Tapes so you could get a feel for their game. 




Brian Burns- 6-5, 235, # 99



09/2018: Great initial burst. He uses his hands well to slap his way past the ORT. Nice inside shoulder shove that he uses to change directions. He has some speed down field chasing the ball carrier. He has the physical traits teams want. Plays hard. Hustles after QB, and changes direction with some twitch to go after the RB. 

Not a warrior against the run. He charges upfield most plays. He can hold the point on the TE, and keep the TE at bay with his long arms. When he uses his hands in run defense, he can hold the point. Very nice spin move inside to QB. Nice quick swim over the ORT. He caused a fumble against Clemson by bursting into the backfield and hitting the QB and RB at the hand off. Very impressive blast off.

He has a shot in the 1st if he can improve off last season. He has that knack for finding the quarterback, even on keepers. Nice lateral quicks while fighting off blockers. I like how he used his long arms to push off, and then burst laterally after the ball. He will drop into coverage as a FLA ST OLB. Needs to add weight. 

Rushes from both sides. "In some ways, his get off and his bend reminds me of Myles Garrett," FSU D-ends Coach Snyder said. "That’s the only guy I’ve been around that can do what Brian can do rushing the quarterback." Like to put his hand down on strongside, and stand up in weak side. 
2017: Started all 13 games at defensive end, totaling 48 tackles, including 13.5 for loss with 4.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two blocked punts…tied for first in the ACC and third nationally with two blocked kicks…turned in six tackles, 2.5 for loss and one blocked punt vs. North Carolina State…against No. 13 Miami, totaled four tackles and one blocked punt…was the most dominant force on the field at No. 4 Clemson, totaling a season high with seven tackles, 4.5 for loss with 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery…became first player in school history with two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in the same game…continued his dominant stretch at rival Florida, finishing with five tackles, 2.5 for loss and 1.5 sacks…in the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl against Southern Mississippi, posted three tackles, 1.5 for loss, one quarterback hurry and one pass breakup…in his last five games totaled 9.5 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks.
2016: Led all freshmen nationally with 9.5 sacks…his sack mark ranked No. 25 overall in the country and seventh in the ACC…one of the nation’s top first-year players, captured freshman All-America honors from FWAA, ESPN and USA Today…played in all 13 games at defensive end and as a rush linebacker…finished with nearly half of his tackles (10.5 of 24) coming behind the line of scrimmage…his 9.5 sacks were the most by an FSU freshman since 1977…tallied more than one sack four times – no FSU freshman had accomplished that feat in a single game since 2006…collected ACC Rookie of the Week honors following a dominant performance at Syracuse…tormented the Orange to the tune of five tackles, 2.5 sacks and a blocked punt…totaled five tackles, including three TFLs, two sacks and a forced fumble in his first extensive action of the season against Charleston Southern…made two sacks and had three total stops at USF…had a sack on Deshaun Watson versus No. 3 Clemson…made three tackles at NC State…tallied two tackles, including a half-sack, versus Boston College…had 1.5 sacks and four total tackles against No. 13 Florida… helped the Seminoles finish No. 1 in the nation in sacks per game (3.92) and No. 2 in overall sacks (51.0).

9.6 Edge


Deebo Samuel- 6', 210, #1


South Carolina

11/2019:He looked a little small to me, which could hurt him in the Draft. But 6-foot 200-210 pounds would be a great size for him in the Draft. Great instincts. He can block for the QB running, and then suddenly catch the ball over his head as the QB suddenly whipped it at him. One of the toughest WRs I have ever seen. 
If he is really 6’, 200 than he is a 1st round pick. Great speed, quickness, and explosion on the field. He is really their only threat in the passing game, and he constantly produces for SC. Usually has great hands, but he will let the fast ball get through his hands sometimes. He plays a lot in the slot, inside, and over the middle. He is Edelman tough going over the middle taking hits from LBs and holding on.
