Best Team Fit for Top 6 Quarterbacks

April 21, 2013 in Draft Reports, Uncategorized

1. Geno Smith- Best fit Jacksonville Jaguars

-Geno Smith is a smart athletic quarterback with a good arm and strong accuracy. He really is the best quarterback to start right away from this draft making him a perfect fit in Jacksonville. The Jaguars lack a true starting option and with a brand new coaching staff in place, they are more apt to tailor their offense around a quarterback's strengths other than the other way around. Head Coach Gus Bradley saw up close and personal what a dual threat rookie quarterback like Geno Smith could do, when he was the defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks last season, as Russell Wilson had a breakout season. Smith offers a great blend of arm talent and athletic ability which could make him an intriguing fit. New offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is coming from the college game, which favors the spread attack. He also spent his last two NFL stops under offensive coaches (Darren Bevell in Seattle and Mike Shanahan in Denver) who like quarterbacks with the mobility to roll out and buy time in the pocket as well as being of more of a run focused mindset. Given the Jaguars weakness along the offensive line, they too will likely look to move the pocket and utilize shotgun to buy time for their quarterback, two other areas that are a strength for Geno Smith.

2. Mike Glennon- Best fit Arizona Cardinals

-Under Bruce Arians last year the Colts were among the league leaders in downfield passing, and that is likely to be what the Cardinals are looking for from their passing game going forward. That is where Glennon fits in, as no quarterback in this draft is more tailor-made for a downfield passing attack than Glennon. He stands tall in the pocket, has a big arm, and fits best in a system that will allow him to challenge defenses vertically. He needs a system that won't ask him to be mobile and will allow him to spend much of his time in the shotgun formation. Given the Cardinals weaker offensive line and the mindset of their Head Coach Bruce Arians and Offensive Assistant Tom Moore, Arizona is likely to feature a lot of shotgun formations.

3. E.J. Manuel- Best fit Philadelphia Eagles

-Manuel offers a ton of potential, and has a great combination of size, speed and arm strength. He needs an innovative system that will allow him to utilize his mobility and his ability to make plays while scrambling. Manuel also could use a system with quick passing and a run heavy focus. That is basically new Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly to a T. Kelly loves to spread the field, run the football and have a mobile quarterback. Manuel is a guy the Eagles can draft to be their future and really build their offense around.

4. Ryan Nassib- Best fit Buffalo Bills

-This one isn't really much of a surprise as both Nassib's college head coach and offensive coordinator are the Bills new head coach and offensive coordinator. The Bills staff can easily structure their offense to Nassib's strengths and just their general philosophy to be a run first team makes Nassib a great fit. Nassib is tough has some familiarity playing in the North East (even with his home games being indoors). He may not start right away even with the coaches knowing him, but he's got good potential for the Bills in the future.

5. Matt Barkley-Best Fit New York Jets

-Matt Barkley is a smart quarterback with good leadership skills and a strong work ethic. For a team in the middle of a major overhaul like the Jets that is exactly the type of quarterback they should be grooming. With the Jets moving to a West Coast Offense, Barkley would fit in well given his lack of a big arm. Barkley needs to work on some of his timing and anticipation, but has the potential to be good in that area. The biggest thing holding him back from being drafted by the Jets is the sticker shock that New York fans would feel drafting another USC quarterback after the Mark Sanchez debacle. Barkley though should be confused with Sanchez as he's shown himself to be a stronger worker and leader, which gives him a better chance of succeeding.

6. Tyler Wilson- Oakland Raiders

-The Raiders could use a young quarterback to develop behind Matt Flynn, and Wilson could be a fit. The Raiders coaching staff saw him up close Senior Bowl week (though they coached the other team), Wilson has a good arm and can challenge teams vertically as well as throw a lot of quick passes. New offensive coordinator Greg Olson, has shown a willingness to stretch the field in the past when he was the offensive coordinator in Tampa. Wilson dealt with a lot of controversy at Arkansas and while it definitely affected him, he battled through it, something he could have to deal with on a rebuilding Oakland team. He's also one of the tougher quarterbacks in the pocket who is not afraid to take a hit, which could help him given some of the Raiders offensive line woes.

Senior Bowl Preview: Who and What to Watch

January 26, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl

The first thing to remember when watching the Senior Bowl game today is that this is just a very small portion of the scouting process. The practices, the interviews, and even the weigh-in all play a much bigger role than their performance in the game in evaluating a player this week.

This is due to two main reasons: 1. the sample size in the game is extremely small, quarter backs may be lucky for 10-12 attempts in this game, compared to practice when they were throwing the ball probably 50-60 times (at least). 2. the game is more restrictive in terms of what you can do from a defensive perspective, where as in practice you had guys blitzing more or playing press coverage making things much more difficult. Now that is not to say that you can't watch this game from a draft perspective to gain some insight, but don't focus on the results.

Two years ago Jake Locker had better "numbers" than Collin Kaepernick, but if you watched the game and saw that Locker got a lot of "yards" from the screen game and Kaepernick's interception wasn't his fault. Scouts watch these games based on what actually happens in the play not what the play results in. A quarterback who throws a perfect pass but is intercepted because it bounced off the receivers hands, is going to be viewed far more favorably than a quarterback who throws a seven yard slant that the receiver runs for 80 yards for the score with.

Saying all of that there are still some great stories and players to watch:

South quarterbacks and receivers versus the North defensive backs:

The corners and safeties on the North squad have been far better this week than the South squad so this could be a wake up call for some of the South's top signal callers and receivers. Any time you see Terrence Williams or Quinton Patton lined up versus Jordan Poyer and Desmond Trufant it should be a fun battle to watch.

North Offensive Line versus the South Defensive Line:

The lineman battling in practice.

The lineman battling in practice.

Eric Fisher, Kyle Long, Justin Pugh and company could have their hands full with Ezekial Ansah, Malliciah Goodman, Montori Hughes and John Jenkins. It should lead to some really good match-ups and it will be interesting to see who gets the better of it.

Return Men, who can get the job done:

Both squads feature a number of receivers, running backs and defensive backs who will look to increase their value in the return game. A lot of focus will be on North receiver Denard Robinson, but expect a couple of other guys to look even better. RB Kenjon Barner and WR Marquise Goodwin from the North are two to watch, while on the South team look for DB Robert Alford and DB B.W. Webb to shine.

5 Players to Watch South Roster:

QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas:

Wilson has had a big week so far and it would be nice for him to cap it off with a strong game. He's shown a nice accurate pass and has been better than expected with his footwork. Wilson has worked his way up into the 2nd round range and could continue to see his stock rise.

RB Stepfan Taylor, Stanford:

Has arguably had the best week of any player on the South squad and I'd expect him to keep it up today. Running backs are one position that can get a pretty fair look in these games (rule changes don't impact them as much), so it should be an intriguing test. He's shown great burst and vision throughout the week and I'd expect a big game for him.

Taylor cutting through the line at practice.

Taylor cutting through the line at practice.

WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech:

Patton wasn't as heralded as some other receivers down here this week, but he really was on par or better than the majority of them. Look for him to be a favorite target of the South quarterbacks this game.

OL Larry Warford, Kentucky:

Warford really showed well in practice versus the likely first round pick John Jenkins all week and has one more chance to wow scouts. I expect him to have a big day against a pretty formidable North defensive line.

DL Montori Hughes, Tennessee Martin:

Every time you watched him this week you came away more and more impressed, I would expect that to continue in this game. He's a big physical kid, with great power and quickness.

5 Players to Watch North Roster:

WR Marquise Goodwin, Texas:

Not a high profile guy coming into this week, but he showed excellent speed. Expect him to fly around the field and come up with some big plays.

OL Eric Fisher, Central Michigan:

Kyle Long and Eric Fisher of North offensive line.

Kyle Long and Eric Fisher of North offensive line.

Just a tremendous all-around week for him, look for him to continue his dominance and to cement a top 15 pick status after this game.

DB Desmond Trufant, Washington:

He had a big week with a lot of highlight plays, will really like to see him versus Patton and Williams and what instincts he shows on the field.

DB T.J. McDonald, USC:

Really had a quiet, but strong week, showing nice coverage and decision making. I'd expect a big hit or two something that he really couldn't showcase in practice.

DL Margus Hunt, SMU:

One of my personal favorites, he had an up-and-down week, but the potential is there. I could see him making a flashy play or two, and don't be surprised if it is a blocked FG/extra point.

Senior Bowl Rising and Falling: South Team

January 26, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl

Rising:

QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas:

-Wilson proved to be the South's top QB this week by showing poise and awareness in the pocket, while also displaying a strong, accurate arm. In addition, he had nice footwork and touch on his throws.

RB Stepfan Taylor, Stanford:

-Taylor showed both good burst and vision this week in both the running and passing game. He didn't show any weaknesses in his game this week, and Senior Bowl week has helped him rise up draft boards.

WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech:

-Patton may not be the most physical receiver in Mobile, but was very fluid, had nice awareness, strong hands and showed excellent quickness. While most scouts thought Terrance Williams was the #1 receiver on the South team, Patton made sure people took notice of him and is drawing more attention.

TE Mychal Rivera, Tennessee:

-Rivera may not wow you in any one area of his game, but caught the ball well this week and shown he has an upside.

OL Brian Schwenke, Cal:

-Schwenke showed a lot of nice traits this week that you look for in a lineman: technically sound, good anchor, nice feet, a little movement to block out in space. Solid lineman and had a good week in Mobile.

DL Montari Hughes, Tennessee Martin:

-Temporarily sidelined with an injury, Hughes still came back to practice and proved himself. At 6'4" 328, he's a force out there and it showed. He was in the backfield quite a bit and really finished plays well. Really impressed by his work ethic and dedication.

DB B.W. Webb, William & Mary:

-A small school standout that had a nice week.  An all-around good defensive back that showed the ability to reroute receivers and not be fooled by double moves.

Falling:

QB Landry Jones, Oklahoma:

-Jones came to Mobile with a lot to prove to scouts, and fell short of proving he could play well from under center and make progressions. His deep ball is pretty, but rarely on target. He excelled more in the short passing game, but if the 1st or 2nd read wasn't there, he was in trouble.

OT Oday Aboushi, UVA:

-There were high hopes for Aboushi this week, but he seemed to struggle overall and looks to be falling down draft boards. Hopefully he plays better in game action Saturday.

LB Chase Thomas, Stanford:

-I was able to interview Thomas this week and liked his enthusiasm. Unfortunately his play this week didn't match and wasn't as high as most expected.

DB Bacarri Rambo, Georgia:

-Rambo had a poor week, as he would look good in individual drills, but struggle when going up against the receivers  He was biting on the double move and really struggling in coverage all week.

DB Robert Lester, Alabama:

-Lester was a bit of a disappointment this week as he was inconsistent and while he didn't necessarily struggle in any one area. He didn't show dominance either.

Senior Bowl South Team Practice Report Day 2 Led by Lane Johnson

January 23, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl

North Practice Report

Notes on Day 2 (Tuesday's) South Practice:

Quarterbacks:

Tyler Wilson, Arkansas:

Wilson followed up a good day with an even better day today. He missed on a couple passes in the early going during 1-on-1's, but he really picked it up after that. He showed really good touch, and I really liked his footwork and the way the ball came out of his hand.

E.J. Manuel, FSU:

Manuel has been very up-and-down. He'll complete 2 or 3 really tough throws, then miss on some easier ones. Love his size and ability to move around the pocket, but accuracy and decision making are more questionable. He does have a really nice deep ball, but was a hair off on a number of his throws down the field. That could just be working with unfamiliar receivers.

Landry Jones, Oklahoma:

In the early going Jones threw perhaps the best pass thrown by any of the six quarterbacks today, unfortunately he didn't come close to repeating that throughout the rest of practice. On quick/short throws he's really good and gets the ball out quickly. But when dropping back from under center or making progressions he struggles.

Running backs:

Stepfan Taylor, Stanford:

Taylor has had back-to-back tremendous practices and has not really shown any weaknesses to his game. The worst you can say about him is he doesn't have elite speed, but few backs who weigh 216 lbs do. He's strong, he's physical, he's showing excellent vision. I love how decisive he is in finding his hole and exploding through it. Really love the burst, the hands, and his cutting ability. He's very much putting on a show and is pushing his way into the 2nd day.

Tight End:

Mychal Rivera, Tennessee:

Jim Schwartz coaches South team in practice.

Jim Schwartz coaches South team in practice.

He hasn't stood out, but he's quietly having a nice week. He catches the ball well, shows some burst. For a smaller tight end he's done okay blocking. Doesn't excel in any one area, but shows some upside.

Michael Williams, Alabama:

Another really good day, for such a big tight end he sure seems to be catching the ball well and getting open. He won't challenge you vertically, but he's not a blocking (still his strong suit) tight end only.

Vance McDonald, Rice:

McDonald didn't have a very good day dropping a couple passes throughout the day. On just about every drop the ball was placed right in the strike zone, which should make that an automatic catch. He did redeem himself some with his blocking and route running, but the drops will hurt him.

Wide Receiver:

Terrence Williams, Baylor:

Didn't have as great of a day, but was still very impressive. He is the fastest and most explosive receiver on this roster, and is at his best when asked to get vertical. Reminds me some of Mike Wallace. A couple reps he was beaten or re-routed too easily, but overall a strong day.

Conner Vernon, Duke:

Had a really nice day, and with Ryan Swope out definitely showed he can be the sure-handed slot receiver that works the middle of the field and eats the zone alive. Vernon had a number of really nice catches and was very fluid in his route running.

Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech:

Had a great second day, showed really nice strong hands, snatching the ball away from defenders on a couple of reps. He showed good speed and was not easily pressed at all.

Offensive Line:

Brian Schwenke, Cal:

Good solid day for Schwenke, showed a lot of nice traits that you look for in a lineman: technically sound, good anchor, nice feet, a little movement to block out in space. He also looks to be a hard worker and seems to get good feedback from the coaches.

Lane Johnson, Oklahoma:

Johnson had another great day, really stonewalled a number of defenders. Shows really nice feet and a good punch. I think he's still better against the pass than against the run.

Larry Warford, Kentucky:

Great day of practice, rarely see him give an inch of ground and in the run game really gets on the defense. I like the way he gets to the second level for a guy his size. He is looking like a day one starter for some team and a top 75 pick.

Defensive Line:

John Jenkins, Georgia:

Jenkins had a great day, the only offensive lineman that did anything against him was Warford, other than that he dominated the line of scrimmage. Loved to see his hustle getting down the line on stretch plays. Also saw him chasing from behind on a short pass, he wasn't conceding even though it was a wide receiver and he had a 5 yard head start. Coaches (and they should) will love that kind of heart.

Montari Hughes, Tennessee Martin:

Hughes was out yesterday due to injury and was even told by his reps that he shouldn't risk it, but he went out there today and had a huge practice. At 6'4" 328, he's a force out there and it showed. He was in the backfield quite a bit and really finished plays well. Really impressed by his work ethic and dedication.

Lavar Edwards, LSU:

Shows some edge rushing ability, but needs to get more consistent, Also he overpursued on a couple of run plays.

Defensive Backs:

Leon McFadden, San Diego State:

Not as strong as yesterday, but still a really nice practice.

B.W. Webb, William & Mary:

Great all-around practice, did a really nice job throughout. Rerouted receivers, stayed on them despite double moves. He also looked good when lined up off man and was able to react to the ball.

Shawn Williams, Georgia:

Non-descript day, didn't really stand out, but wasn't beaten that much either.

Bacarri Rambo, Georgia:

Another poor day, he struggled in coverage. Biting on a double move and just slow to move to the ball. His pursuit was off both against the pass and run. Yet once again he showed all the proper tools in the position drills.

J.J. Wilcox, Georgia Southern:

Still struggled some in the drills, but looked better in the 1-on-1's and team scrimmage.Obvious that he's still one of the more raw players out there, but was tighter in coverage today and showed better reaction time.

Senior Bowl Practice Report: Day One South Team Led by Tyler Wilson

January 22, 2013 in 2013 Senior Bowl

Here is a look at the South team's first practice today, including what players helped their stock and who struggled in the early going. The South team is coached by the Detroit Lions staff headed by Coach Jim Schwartz. Players were hit helmets and shells so full contract wasn't allowed. Here is the North team practice report

Quarterbacks:

Landry Jones, Oklahoma:

Is Landry Jones stock falling?

Is Landry Jones stock falling?

-Jones didn't help himself earlier in the day at the weigh-in, coming under 6'4" and not having any outstanding measurable, and then had a poor overall performance in practice. He struggled with his footwork coming from under center and didn't look too comfortable throwing intermediate or longer routes. He has a nice deep ball, but it was rarely on target. He was much more precise on shorter quick passes, but got uncomfortable quick when his first or second read weren't there.

E.J. Manuel, FSU:

-Manuel had a really strong day overall, he showed good mobility in the pocket to buy time and still deliver a strike on the move. His footwork wasn't perfect, but it wasn't bad and allowed him to throw a number of strong accurate throws down the field. A couple times in 7-on-7's and team drills he made some poor decisions or was inaccurate with his throw, but he had a very good practice overall. He's still a work in progress, but the potential is very much there for him to have an impact at the next level.

Tyler Wilson, Arkansas:

Wilson probably had the best day of any of the signal callers. He did throw a bad interception late during team drills, but that was really his only blemish of the day. He showed good poise and awareness in the pocket and displayed a strong accurate arm on a number of throws down field. Overall he did a really good job of placing the ball in the strike zone of his receiver and away from defenders. Wilson definitely opened some eyes with this practice and if he keeps it up this week could move up some draft boards.

Running backs:

Stephan Taylor, Stanford:

Taylor had some concerns about speed coming into the draft process, but showed good burst today, both in rushing and receiving. He might not be the fastest running back, but it didn't appear to be a liability for him either. He showed good vision finding his hole and finding it quickly. I really liked his decisiveness, which is an underrated trait for the next level. Taylor was also really impressive catching the ball as well, he was good in space and ran crisp routes getting separation from the defender.

Andre Ellington, Clemson:

He had an up and down day, but he did show  nice speed and quickness. Also made some really nice plays in space. He had a couple poor plays where he slipped when he tried to make a cut or ran into the pile instead of hitting the hole, but overall it was solid.

Tight End:

Vance McDonald, Rice:

McDonald is an underrated tight end, but had a really strong day that could start pushing him up draft boards. He did everything well today. He ran good solid routes getting separation from both safeties and linebackers. He caught everything that he got his hands on and displayed nice speed. He also did well as a blocker in team drills, showing nice two-way ability.

Michael Williams, Alabama:

Williams isn't the fastest tight end you will every see, but that doesn't mean you can ignore him in the passing game. Linebackers struggled all day to cover him as he used his big frame to shield them from the ball, and displayed nice strong hands. Williams really excelled in the blocking game though as he was essentially a 6th offensive linemen out there. He swallowed up both defensive ends and linebackers with ease.

Wide Receiver:

Ryan Swope, Texas A&M:

Early on Swope had a strong practice showing nice quickness and getting in and out of his breaks. Latter in 1-on-1's and 7-on-7's he struggled on a couple reps dropping two easy catches, one time really drawing the ire of the coaching staff. He also struggled to get any deep separation, and looked most comfortable on quicker routes.

Quinton Patton, LA Tech:

Patton had a really strong day, he was very fluid and showed nice short area quickness. He also showed nice awareness and strong hands. Patton did struggle on some deeper routes as he wasn't able to separate,  and got out muscled a couple of times. He will need to show that he can be more physical, and it will be something to watch going forward.

Terrance Williams, Baylor:

Had by far the best practice of any receiver. Only guy who was consistently able to get behind the coverage and gain separation throughout the practice. He made a number of highly acrobatic catches and tracked the ball well on long passes. Williams looks to be the whole package and will definitely be someone to watch going forward.

Offensive Line:

Larry Warford, Kentucky:

Warford had the best all-around day by any offensive lineman, he was quick off the ball and showed a good anchor, rarely letting anyone push him back or control the point of attack. He also showed surprising quickness for his size and handled speed well.

Dallas Thomas, Tennessee:

Thomas played both guard and tackle in practice and handled his own at both positions. He didn't have the best anchor and didn't finish guys off, but he showed quick feet and re-routed a number of defenders keeping the pocket generally clean. A couple times he did get beat, but overall it was a pretty solid practice.

Lane Johnson, Oklahoma:

Really thought he had a great all-around practice, he lined up at both tackle spots and really showed quick feet and a nice sound base. He anchored well and didn't allow much penetration. He wasn't as good versus the run, but it was by no means a bad showing.

OT Oday Aboushi, OL Garrrett Gilkey and OL Xavier Nixon all looked solid or better as well.

Defensive Line:

Ezekial Ansah, BYU:

Up-and-down practice, looked very quick in individual drills and and 1-on-1's, but struggled some in team drills he didn't win as many battles as you'd hope. Showed some natural bust and edge ability, but needs to get more wins with that talent level.

John Jenkins, Georgia:

Jenkins was a monster in middle, nearly impossible to block 1-on-1, and  disrupting a number of plays with his penetration. He plays with excellent leverage, and despite his size he's very quick off the ball getting into defender's pads.

Malliciah Goodman, Clemson:

Goodman was very impressive today, got off the line quick and was perhaps the 2nd toughest defensive lineman to block after Jenkins. He showed a good ability to rush the quarterback and nice recognition against the run.

Defensive Backs:

Sanders Commings, Georgia:

Commings is thought to be more of a corner, but after today's practice he may be viewed more of a free safety prospect. He was not fluid in flipping his hips, and really struggled when asked to run with receivers. He did some nice things when he played off in a zone and the play was in front of him, but other than that it was not a strong day.

Robert Lester, Alabama:

Lester looked good early on in practice in both individual and 1-on-1 drills, but disappeared or struggled later. He didn't struggle particularly in any one area, but he didn't show dominance either. He was pretty inconsistent in the team drills, with one rep showing nice recognition and back peddle and then the next rep missing his assignment. Overall solid day, but not spectacular.

Bacarri Rambo, Georgia:

Rambo looked flawless in the individual position drills setting the bench mark everyone else was compared to, but he all but disappeared once he started going up against receivers/tight ends. He still made a play or two, but overall he was late recognizing a number of passes, and took bad angles to the ball. Given how he started and his overall hype it was a poor overall showing.

J.J. Wilcox, Georgia Southern:

It quickly became apparent that Wilcox has just one year at safety under his belt. While he flashes big play ability he looked simply lost out there at times. He really struggled in the positional drills, especially with his ability to flip his hips and his back peddle. While there is some legitimate promise there, he's very much a developmental prospect.

Leon McFadden, San Diego State:

McFadden had the best all-around showing today among defensive backs. He was very fluid in the drills, displaying good speed and quickness. He really excelled when faced with receivers. He showed physicality and great reaction time, and was constantly the toughest draw for a particular receiver.
