Penn State vs. Michigan State
99 Jerel Worthy
8 Kirk Cousins
43 Eric Gordon
53 Greg Jones
83 Charlie Gantt
Royster - solid speed but can turn edge...runs w/ high pad level
needs to run with more aggressv.
Gantt - good blocker
Jones - solid speed to close...doesn't look elite so far
Run blitz in A-gap, works through trash for excellent TFL ...
cat-like athleticism...very good agility and speed
Cousins: very good arm strength...ropes the football...solid accuracy
Honestly Walt, with the exception of the Malcolm Smith deal, the 49ers have done a really good job in free agency, there is nothing wrong either the Kerley or Mitchell deals. I think they were right in line for who the players are. Denver offered Mitchell a deal worth slightly less. As a diehard 49er fan, a B is more in line with the correct grade.
