    This defensive end class is too talented to ignore. Two more guys I was just looking at the other day that kind of blew me away were Quanterus Smith of Western Kentucky and Walter Stewart of Cincinnati. Incidentally, what the hell do they put in the water at Cincinnati. They keep producing these unusually explosive defensive linemen.

    Stewart has sticks of dynamite in his ankles and Smith is just brutal and relentless with good use of hands as a pass rusher, and the ability to be an every down defensive end.

    What I like about Terrance Williams is he's a true perimeter specialist. He's got the speed and RAC ability to do some damage from the slot, but he seems less comfortable there and it seems to me like a higher percentage of his drops come from his work there. But on the perimeter, what I like is that in that Art Briles system with his insanely wide WR splits, this compresses the space that Terrance Williams has to win on the outside. He's got a smaller highway between the coverage and the sideline, but he seems perfectly comfortable with using every inch of the field available to him and negotiating the sideline. He's got the size/speed to where you'd really better watch out if you're trying to single cover him deep on a streak. But he also gets open for comebacks and out breaking routes.

    With the wide splits in Briles' offense I tend to think of the slot players as the ones that benefit a little more as the splits give them almost a CFL field to work with. Those are just my thoughts on the matter.

    Quanterus Smith really is a terrific player. I've talked about him for a while going back to my underrated Seniors thread. I watched him beat us for 3 sacks in Bryant Denny because we couldn't block him. He's one of those players that I make it a point to go back and watch every week.

    Willie Taggert is one of the most underrated coaches in college football, and I see within his players on both sides of the ball. Western Kentucky is the most fundamentally sound football team in the Sun-Belt conference, and one of the 10 best coached teams in the entire country week in and week out. Coach Taggert will get a big head coaching job when he wants it.

    If I were an SEC team like Kentucky that needs a good, solid developer of talent and a good recruiter, Taggert would be at the top. Kentucky would play a competitive brand of SEC football under a guy like Taggert.

    Hoops is this a weak QB class? Not saying the Dolphins are in the market, I'm just asking about it's relative strength compared to previous classes.

    To me it appears that way at the top, because I know a lot of you have your reservations about Geno Smith, & I think Matt Barkley has probably underwhelmed compared to most people's expectations. I'm also not sure how crazy you guy's are about Tyler Wilson & Tyler Bray.

    You could throw Logan Thomas & Landry Jones in there as well I guess.

    found me an offensive tackle that i really like in the event we let jake long walk after the season...jake matthews of texas a & m looks like a perfect fit for our offense and a plug and play right tackle...he's got plus feet good athleticism and movement skills can get to the 2nd level and make solid sustained contact...i see a very aware tackle when he combo blocks initially on the inside he has the awareness and feet to come off and pick up delayed edge rushers no problem...really good looking player...sits down well in pass pro...able to recover and anchor rarely off balance...i think people are sleeping on this kid...

    1st round grade for me...someone i think is gonna rise come draft eval time...and someone i bet mike sherman is gonna vouge for if jake exits...i'd like to get him high round 2 but i don't know that you can wait off what i see...

    his teammate joeckels a stud also but we're not sniffing that given where we are gonna finish...i see prototype left tackle stuff there...big fan of both these tackles
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    k states arthur brown is an undersized instinctual mike backer that i view as terrific depth and potential starter down the line should dansby exit...only a 43 fit due to his size might be 6 ft might be 230 lbs brown has the instincts first and foremost you look for...reads his keys very well looks like a student of the game to me his diagnosis and tracking of the ball abilities are high end...shoots gaps in run support a very dependable tackler and packs a punch can run and find work can sift through traffic and make plays on the ball good speed can cover down the seam and underneath and limits rac i don't quite have him as explosive a prospect as i did nebraskas lavonte david last year despite the similar size but i see arthur brown as a terrific selection with one of those 3rd round picks and a steal if his size dropped him any further...frankly only reason i think he gets to the 3rd round is size...most 34 teams will not have him on their board as a base lb as a result

    arthur brown is a player i would pound the table for with a 3rd round pick as a 43 mike backer and depth player...make no mistake about it...this team needs better quality lb depth...

    miss st cb jonathon banks possesses fantastic length and rediculous vine like arms and the best ball skills in the entire draft class at the position...i see some serious awareness with this kid...man or zone he looks very comfortable...at times it looks like he's peeking in the backfield a little too much and relying on his acceleration and long stride to recover but the ball skills and the way he plays the man and the ball are undeniable...i see some pretty good feet and he looks like while tackling is not gonna be a real strength he's a willing tackler and has some nastiness to him...

    this is the one cb for me that i'd have to think long and hard about with our top pick if he got to me...i'm gonna be watching this kid closely at the combine to see what kind of long speed he has and at that length how much stiffness there is in his hips...i'm not seeing much change of direction looks pretty good love the feet love the length absolutely love the awareness and ball skills...

    his teammate at safety nickoe whitley is a stick of damn dynamite...enforcer right there...looks like though at times he'll just drop his head and look for the kill shot and miss in space though...but cannot deny that guys a physical force...hips look pretty fluid also to me

    bama miss st is a must watch next week fellas...
