2 Terrelle Pryor
65 Justin Boren
97 Cameron Heyward

1st - 8:50 - Very good footwork from Pryor - miles ahead of where it was a year
ago ... nice touch and accuracy in dropping over the zone
1st - 8:23 - Terrible accuracy and ball thrown way too hard ... lacks some awareness as a passer here
1st - 7:40 - Great footwork and presence at beginning of 5-step drop, but lacks
balance at end of throw
1st - 1:34 - Very nice footwork and balance on this throw ... solid accuracy
for TD pass on post route
2nd - 12:36 - Throws VERY dangerous pass with safety over the top - should have been an INT here. Too much air under pass - should have been a bullett in the seam
not a ball with a lot of air
1st - 13:12 - Overwhelmed at POA by double team
1st - 12:34 - Good job getting leverage and shedding LG
1st - 10:17 - Nice power at POA and uses hands powerfully here ... Marshall
making effort to dbl team Heyward
1st - 7:22 - Nice pop at POA again ... shows good strength in shedding LG
1st - 6:07 - In great position to make TFL, but completely misses tackle ... shows
average athleticism and body control here
1st - 5:40 - Gets good power, stays low on bullrush
1st - 1:17 - Doesn't show a burst or great agility here when RB bounces it outside
1st - 0:12 - Uses size and strength to set the edge
2nd - 9:20 - Nice first step, but lacks flexibility/athleticism to dip shoulder
and run the arc
2nd - 2:59 - Shows tremendous motor and effort on this play ... good strength, solid quickness to get around OL and forces QB hurry which leads to INT
2nd - 1:28 - Protects legs on chop blocks, makes HUGE hit on RB
1st - 13:12 - Good instincts, reaction on pitch ... excellent speed in
1st - 12:34 - Nice instincts, quick-twitch athlete, good C.O.D., active
1st - 10:17 - Shows very good athleticism and footwork in coverage ... nice
awareness and recognizes slant over middle
1st - 10:13 - Shows outstanding speed and instincts on this screen pass (incomplete)
1st - 6:52 - gets easily blocked by TE
1st - 5:40 - Good instincts, reads QBs eyes and delivers huge hit to RB
on circle route
2nd - 10:39 - Struggles mightly in taking on block
2nd - 9:20 - Runs around block as opposed to taking it head on and trying to shed ... gives too much space to RB and gets big run
@Mark C. I was going to point out to Walter that people can actually travel and most people attending games don't live within walking distance of the stadiums. A 4 or 5 hour drive to go see a game is absolutely nothing. It's only 8 regular season home games each season after all.
Here we are a little over a month away from the big draft. Last year at this time the big trades were happening. Fantasy Football junkie so I love the draft. Had a few thoughts on the top 6 players from the 2016 draft ( was cool how they actually panned out ) so I thought I`d do it again this year. Went with 12 players this year.
Most intriguing ?? Watson-Trubisky-Mahomes & Kizer... Once again , just like last year, the QB position has the most questions and interest.
Safest picks? Garrett-Thomas-Adams & Barnett all look nfl ready.
Most athletic? Peppers-Samuel-Melifonwu & Ross... (GARRETT)
Just wow on how deep this draft class is.
I believe there are no franchise QB's in this draft, possible for teams to trade into the lower 1st round to grab a QB. Defense is deep, especially in the secondary and that makes this draft a crapshoot.
