Your boy Colledge VS Kiwanuka?

Interesting indeed.

Interesting indeed.


I know I can't wait, man! If Colledge shuts him down, we're going to have to burn a first rounder to pick him up!

TheChampion
12-19-2005, 06:11 PM
yeah, if your Colledge you have got to be smiling about that. if he does well against Mathias Kiwanuka int hat game, his stock willl rise drastically, possibly into top 15 being the second OT taken in the draft. at this point i see him as a 2nd round pick. who could somehow sneak into the 3rd round as the draft is loaded with tackles

ChampBronco
12-19-2005, 08:21 PM
What about the Fort Worth Bowl? Go Jayhawks! The player to watch out for in that game is Nick Reid, the Big 12 defensive player of the year and leader in tackles.

Howard sat this season out. He won't be playing in the Sun Bowl.

Not that I think there's any chance Denver will draft him, but QB Brett Basanez is also worth watching. I expect him to get drafted late and make whichever team takes him very happy.
Hell, he's not even at Northwestern anymore. He transferred to ASU.

Minnesota vs. Virginia

Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl
December 30th, 12:00 pm

Who to watch:

Minnesota-

Laurence Maroney, RB #22
Greg Eslinger, C #61
Jared Ellerson, WR #83

Virginia-

D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT #66
Ahmad Brooks, ILB #34
Wali Lundy, RB #33

...........

I am sure I have missed several players, so I look forward to input. Just please, for the love of God, don't quote this whole thing back in your response!

This game really intrigues me. I am very surprised you did not highlight Maroney's name. How can a guy who is such an explosive, gamebreaking player not be wanted in Denver? He already runs in the SAME system we use in Denver. Draft status for Maroney has been up and down from the top 10 at some points all the way to the early 2nd, so we definitely have a shot at getting him.

You may ask, "Do we need him?" I would say yes. In fact, of all the realistic possible offensive picks in the first round, I would say he and Vernon Davis are the only two I really want (D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be awesome in our system as well, but he is a pipedream).

Denver's offense is good, but it is really comprised entirely of blue collar players. All have their strengths, but no one requires double teaming, special gameplanning, spying, bracketing, etc. Basically, no one is a gamebreaker like Maroney is shaping up to be. He could fit right in as the 3rd running back, can already return kickoffs well, and would catch on fast considering he already understands a zone blocking scheme.

Other players I think should be mentioned:

Minnesota OG Mark Setterstrom - A very good OG that has played at a high level in a zone blocking scheme.

Minnesota DT Anthony Montgomery - An intriguing 4-3 NT prospect that has hovered in the 3rd to 4th round region.

Virginia LB Kai Parham - How can you put Ahmad Brooks on the list without mentioning Parham. While Brooks was injured for much of the year Parham took the leader role on the Cavs defense. He finished with 9 sacks from a MLB spot, and he has earned the nickname "The Hammer" by the way he tackles. So while you are watching Brooks, don't take your eye off #44 next to him.

Is he enrolled there yet? I wasn't sure because he still shows up in our directory.
Yeah. Players are required to sit out at their new school for a year when they transfer, and Howard has the (mis)fortune of simultaneously rehabbing during his year off. I'm not exactly sure why he transferred, though.

Hey MUG, can you post dates and times for those bowl games? Got to know when to watch them.

And as far as Maroney goes, I guess I will make his name in bold but I really doubt he's going to last until the 20th pick! LOL! You never know, though, I guess.

Also please note that I don't watch college football at all...and 99% of these guys I have never seen play. So, that's how I can put Ahmad Brooks in and not the other guy...because I didn't know he existed 'til now. I'm hoping that by catching the bowl games and knowing who to watch, I will be more familiar with the players.

I will make the adjustments mentioned by you guys, keep the input flowing! MUG if you don't mind I will incorporate your games into the master list.

I couldn't agree more with your assessment on running back. I know a lot of people will still not understand nor agree with that thought, but whether it is Maroney, D. Williams or L. White I do not care. But I feel like it really is time we added a playmaking spark to the offense and all three would bring that. We need someone who can rise above the system, even though the system is a great one.

That is my perfect first round for the Broncos. If one of the RB's (White, Williams or Maroney) falls to the Broncos pick, then a d-lineman with the 2nd first round pick. (Wroten, Bunkley, G. Adams, Q. Moses, McClover, Mahelona, etc.) If we got that combo of star RB and d-line, I think it would be a very successful 1st rounf for both sides of the ball.

It really matters little if you have watched the college players or not, chances are, even if you have, your opinion is probably not going to be more correct then an expert evaluation site like Scout.com or Mel Kiper Jr.

I watch a few games, just to see particular players, but I'm like you for the majority, I base alot of my opinions off what the experts tell me.

What I do though is subscribe to a lot of sites, get a lot of evalutations, compare/contrast, look at combine numbers and senior bowl reports, look at NFL team needs, and then figure out on my own who is worth what. That generally works pretty well. Also, researching background info really helps as well, such as wrestling histories for defensive linemen (leverage), religion/family info, etc... Character and intangibles really help make it easier to project a prospect.


Anyway,

New Orleans is tonight
GMAC is Dec. 21st
Fort Worth is the 23rd
Hawaii is the 24th


Finally, Jordan Palmer isn't coming out this season, they just list all draft prospects regardless of year and where they would likely go.

i stole this but hear ya go....

12/20 - WYNDHAM NEW ORLEANS BOWL - Arkansas State vs. Southern Miss – 5 pm PST ESPN

SO.MISS. - Kevis Coley, Sr. ILB, 6-1 228, Moved from strong-side linebacker to the middle linebacker position to take advantage of his run-stopping ability ... it worked – he finished the season leading the team with 145 tackles, 13 TFLs, 5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles… Coley, the 2005 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year, earned first team All-Conference USA honors this season… a very productive ILB…..

Watch List: George Batiste, Jr., ROG, 6-5 310, a 2 yr starter - big, physical and has great tools ... was named to the 2005 C-USA All-Conference team…


12/21 - GMAC BOWL - UTEP vs. Toledo - 5 pm PST ESPN

UTEP - Jeremy Jones, Jr., WLB, 121 tackles, 13.5 TFLs, 3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 PBU and 4 forced fumbles… with Jones, Jose Garcia, LOG, 6-2 315 and Josh House LOT, 6-4 295 also made All-Conference…

TOLEDO - Omar Jacobs at Bowling Green got most of the press, but Toledo QB Bruce Gradkowski was named co-winner (Western Michigan WR Greg Jennings) of the 2005 Vern Smith MVP Award by the MAC... When I saw Toledo play Bowling Green, it was clear in my mind who was the better QB, and apparently the league thought so too…


12/22 - PIONEER PURE VISION LAS VEGAS BOWL - BYU vs. California - 5 pm PST ESPN

If you want offensive line help, perhaps this is your game…

BYU - Jake Kuresa, Jr., ROT, 6-4, 339, started in 10 of the Cougars' 11 games at right tackle and has played guard ... led BYU in take-downs ... led the team with fewest sacks allowed ... anchored an offensive line that provided pass protection for the nation's seventh-ranked offense, averaging 306.3 yards per game ... through the first 10 games of the season, led the Cougars with 74 knock-downs ... averaging one knock-down every 9.4 plays… preseason candidate for the 2005 Outland Trophy ...

CAL - Marvin Philip, C, 6-2 305, has been named, for the second consecutive year, to the Dave Rimington Trophy (top center)... man, this guy looks like Jr. Seau…

Ryan O'Callaghan, ROT, 6-7 360, a true behemoth, and front-line player with a big, bruising style of play in the trenches ... just what you want on the right side… wow, 2-time PAC-10 all-conference… time to watch this guy…

And my #3 CB, Daymeion Hughes, RCB, 6-2 185, also PAC-10 All- Conference... I really liked Hughes, he ranks third in the Pac-10 for INTs: 4 for 141 yards, including a pick six... He also recorded 59 tackles (45 solo) and accrued 12 pass break-ups and was named mid-season All-American by SI.com… I wonder if he’ll declare…

Started off looking good, then faded. The other QB, Grabowski or whatever, was very impressive.

Mat'hir Uth Gan,

Although you say a lot of great things I have to disagree with your comment below.

"Washington Redskins Watch: 9 - 6. (We should of kept that pick)"

From NFL Draft Blitz:

What makes this draft so good?
By: Tyler Shannon
12/27/05

Over the next few months, all you will hear about is how much talent is in this draft. The truth is, it may be the best draft in decades. Starting with quarterbacks you have last year’s Heisman trophy winner and the leader of a team that could soon be 3-time National Champions. And by-the-way, Matt Leinart was more productive this season. You have what should be the two most physically gifted offensive threats since Michael Vick and they happen to play the two most important offensive positions.

Vince Young is the Texas Longhorns. Without him they are maybe a top 20 team. Young may not be as fast as Vick but he’s stronger and a better passer. Both things can easily make him more dangerous then Vick, not to mention Young’s decision making and understanding of defenses is better then Vick’s was when he came out.

Then there is Reggie Bush, who may easily be the best running back to come out of college, maybe even the best ever. With his physical tools and his vision, watching Reggie play is like eating Christmas dinner, it’s amazing no matter where you are. I am always very skeptical about how a productive college running back will perform in the NFL, but this time I know Bush will put on a show. But let’s not forget the terrific talent in the RB class behind Bush. Williams, Maroney, Drew, and White all should be first round picks and behind them aren’t exactly a bunch of substitute teachers.

Don't forget about A.J. Hawk who may be the best LB since Urlacher. His instincts and intensity are simply scary. Mario Williams should be the best DE prospect since Julius Peppers began reeking havoc on NFL o-lines, but Mathias Kiwanuka won’t be far back on most draft boards. Defensive backs Jimmy Williams and Michael Huff are as gifted physically as they are mentally and should quickly shore up problems in your favorite teams defensive secondary. Mercedes Lewis is that TE that every quarterback dreams of. He can block well and is a huge target and threat in the passing game. Finally on the offensive line, D’Brickashaw Ferguson is a top 5 talent who not only has the physical tools, but he seems to get better every year. His ability to protect the pass will make one team’s QB very very thankful. The scariest part about this draft is I’ve just named 14 players that would probably go in the top 5 of any other draft and a lot of the guys right behind this group aren’t far behind. April’s draft weekend is going to be a hoot and next season in the NFL should be very fun to watch.

Dude, that is his signature and has nothing to do with this thread. Take it somewhere else.

Dear lord, I forgot to add Elvis Dumervil to the Louisville game, LOL! My bad, fixed it.

That sig opinion is based completely on Mike Patterson and the fact we likely won't be able to obtain an equivalent calibur DT in this draft whereas if we would have kept our pick, we could have drafted him last draft. That is all.
