    Positives:
    Good athlete... Very good speed... Explosive... Solid pass rusher... Good initial burst... Good bend on the corner... Lanky... Long arms... Active hands... Solid hand technique... Will affect passing lanes when he cannot reach the quarterback... Good balance and body control... Makes plays in the backfield... Good closing speed... Solid lateral mobility... Makes plays down the line of scrimmage... Locates the ball quickly... Tackles well... Plays low... Solid drops in coverage... Loose hips... Redirects and recovers well when he out-runs the play... Team leader... Aggressive... Plays smart... Durable, has not missed a game in two seasons... In the same mold as former Central Arkansas defensive ends Jacob Ford (Titans) and Larry Hart (Jaguars).

    Negatives: Not real strong... Can be engulfed by larger blockers... Can be pushed around... Lacks the power to split double teams... Does not get off blocks especially quick... Loses ground at the point of attack... Needs a clear path to the quarterback to be successful... Tends to run around blocks, struggles to face them head on... Can be run at... Needs to improve maintaining containment... Can be slow to diagnose and read plays, not the most instinctive player... Has played in a down position and will need to adjust to standing upright... Is strictly a 3-4 OLB prospect at this point, would need to add considerable muscle mass to get looks as a defensive end... Any additional bulk might impact his speed... Lack of competition playing at the FCS level.

    I wonder if he has a chance to make 53 roster.

    Of all the OLB/DE that we passed up....would any one hazzard a guess which one(s) will have more than 10 sacks?

    Probably not. That is what most late round kids do... they are drafted to add a name to the mix in camp ... competition that is all. He will probably be real hungry when he gets there and fly around try his tukus off, and it could have a beneficial effect on the camp. Then when everyone is counted .... he will be released because he isn't as fast, strong, well balanced, or football smart as a professional football player needs to be in order to be competitive.

    The sad part is that it doesn't look like an impressive highligt reel at all ... and it was against players that are only a small notch above highschool talent levels. I truly wonder what made this kid stand out over even backups from bigger schools... cause I don't see it.

    I'm starting to detect a note of sarcasm here ZB....

    Markell is a odd pick. I think Romeus is still out there, as is Thomas Keiser. Wouldn't of they been better selections this late?....

    Like I said, odd draft. I do like Cannon if he clears medical. That is a steal in round 5. I've seen him rated by many scouts as the 4th best Guard, with RT size.

    FACT 1 The defense was not good enough in 2010.

    FACT 2 The defense rankded LAST on stopping 3rd Down Conversion

    FACT 3 This draft did nothing to improve the Defence. Sorry, Ras-I is not going to beat out Bodden.

    FACT 4 TB is going to have to have another MVP season to cover up the D's deficiencies.

    Cliffy Mathews from S. Carolina would be a nice 7th R for Pats - OLB pass rusher

    They were good enough to go 14-2. Just heard Bruschi say about BB's drafting, When you've got 3 sbs in your back pocket and you're coming off a 14-2 season with the #1 seed and you have a young team you can do whatever you want. Then Jaws said, 8 players they've drafted since 2008 are on other teams.

    And yet more ignorance from a poster that knows nothing. Ras wasn't picked to "beat out" Bodden this year. It is typical for it to take 2-3 yrs to figure out the corner position in the NFL. McCourtey is an exception, not the rule. Ras was picked to hopefully take over for Bodden in 2 years while he learns the ropes in the interim.

    Why the heck do people think that every pick is to be an impact player in their first year? Could it be they don't really understand the game of football?

    mbeaulieu07  and FAUCETMAN:

    I'd be interested in a new thread by you guys with a final draft analysis along with potential FA possibilities to fll some holes. I'm sure others would look forward to the thread as well.

    GB went 11-5 and won the Super Bowl ... Frankly the 14-2 don't matter when you lose your only playoff game at home BADLY to the 11-5 Jests.

     New England Patriots 

    7th round - final stretch! Some notable Pats 7th rd picks: Julian Edelman, Matt Cassel, Tully Banta-Cain, David Givens & Patrick Pass

    Without a ton of research, I bet NE having 8 picks since 2008 go to other teams isn't anything more than the average. Most of those picks are from rounds 3 through 7 which are mostly crap shoot picks anyways. Those picks can usually go either way.

    Great point!

    Just because a player goes undrafted doesn't mean he won't succeed. Twenty-three - 23! - undrafted free agents were in this year's Pro Bowl.

    Patriots are one pick away from their final scheduled pick.

    knowing them, they'll probably trade the 7th round pick for a future pick

    He's going to be catnip for Cannon and Solder to swat around on the practice squad.
