Texas vs. Nebraska
1st - 9:58 - Displays good agility and change of direction ... nice tackle and instincts
Pretty invisible in first half ... not very physical
1st - 9:25 - Terrific coverage on fade route ...
doesn't open hips up too early ... shows ability to turn and run ... looks back for football ...
average ball skills here and might have been able to break up pass
2nd - 10:09 - LOVE this play from Amukamara ... rest of defenses misses tackles, Amukamara shows great speed and chases down WR from behind to save TD ... love his competitiveness here
1st - 7:33 - Reads and reacts well here ... nice tackle
1st - 6:49 - Poor technique (hand use) at LOS and gets pushed off by WR ... too long legged in stance
1st - 6:49 - Blown assignment - rest of defense in man doverage, but Williams goes to zone ... sloppy with technique as well if he was hypothetically suposed to be in zone
1st - 3:22 - Way too high and slow in backpedal
1st - 2:23 - Good job getting off block to make tackle
2nd - 15:00 - Blown assignnment
Willing in run support ... but not a very physical hitter
1st - 6:33 - Outstanding coverage and notches pass breakup ... press man - Shows elite agility with his ability to stop and go .. very good footwork and isn't fazed by double move ... great instincts
2nd - 4:48 - Off man ... nice break on the ball and gets PBU
1st - 2:53 - Fails to get off 1v1 block ... bad hand use - not phsyical enough
@TER not sure if the Vikes would look past his face punch video after the AP suspension .... PR issues weigh big into teams draft choices...I also agree with Mr. Bitter that he has came off as arrogant and no remorse...even with them settling out of court recently.... He could have killed that girl no matter how anyone spins it...she wasn't a threat and he would do it again IMHO
I am doing a draft as a Vikings fan so no real horse in the first round. I will pick who I think fits the team and who they need. I avoided trades in this mock but there will defiantely be 2 or 3 at least as teams see guys falling. I drafted in a manner where I thought the Browns were not dumb and I also started about 2 and a half weeks before the draft and did not go back if rankings changed or new info came ie the whole 49ers having no idea who they are drafting. I can nto wait for the draft and hopefully the Browns do not screw it up once again for Hue Jackson's sake as look I have Trubisky slipping to 33 as one of the top QBs possibly could
