Wisconsin vs. Purdue
15:00 1st - Struggles in space ... seems a little heavy footed and lacks some athleticism
13:25 1st - Excellent push in the run game ... shows solid strength ... still on
ground too much (at end of play - but I see this consistently)
12:19 1st - Bends at waist too much ... a little heavy legged ... good job
11:47 1st - Needs to do a better job with knee bend ... excellent push in run
game and shows upper body strength
11:18 1st - Good 2nd level block ... nice straight line speed (just lacks smoothness - a little stiff) ...
7:14 1st (on own 2-yd line) - Excellent footwork on this play and great technique
... halfway through he gets top heavy and bends at waist, but then adjusts
6:24 1st - Excellent push in run game ... does a good job of pumping feet ... Good strength
... DT (Mike Neal) out of play
4:24 1st - Gets way too top heavy ... poor footwork and gets off balance
3:43 1st - Very good push in run game again ... Solid job staying low and using
leverage vs. Neal
1:42 1st - Solid footwork but gets too high ... Lacks knee/ankle flexion ... Clearly
at this point I know he isn't a natural knee bender - not sure if he is capable of this
:59 1st - Nice kick step ... gets too top heavy and goes to ground when Kerrigan puts on spin move ... lacks athleticism, agility, coordination, etc. ... Gives up 0.5 sack
9:52 2nd - Relies on size and strength too much ... bad hand placement and doesn't get extension ... On ground and has trouble keeping feet underneath him
11:55 3rd - Pancake block ... uses size and strength to devour DE ... really nice run block
9:53 3rd - Gets too top heavy and bends at waist ... on ground again
15:00 4th - Poor hand placement and lets Kerrigan get inside body ... poor job of cutting
off horn and gets beat ... would have given up sack had QB not thrown ball a second early
... Kerrigan simply got under Carimi's pads and beat him to the QB using strength and technique ... Carimi got too high here ... this is the type of play that convinces me Carimi
can't play LT in NFL
2nd 9:02 - Excellent job going over the middle and hanging onto football after BIG hit that
put him on his back ... Lacked some acceleration over the middle on crossing route
10:51 3rd - Great diving catch over the middle on a post route ... Terrific concentration
and doesn't let ball hit ground
@dawg66 I realize that but look at the success Elliott had this season in Dallas he's been an MVP Candidate and done a lot of the heavy lifting for that potent Dallas offence and Fournette has just as much if not more talent than Elliott. Note: This draft does not reflect what I believe the teams will do it is what I think is the best move to "change the franchise" per se
I remember you said ravens need RB last year. You tried point at ozzie for being Alabama lover but lnow what's funny? Most people from ravens, want to draft EE, not henry. Walt, tell me how you feel when you're wrong and look like idiot?
