In response to dreighver's comment:
I was watching highlight tape of Logan Ryan, the CB we drafted from Rutgers. I liked what I saw, and he certainly appears to be a Patriot type of DB.
But something that stood out to me... the two other guys I noticed standing out, making hits, and flying around the ball, were Kasim Green (went to the Bears, I believe), and Harmon (that safety no one seems to like... already).
Who knows how Harmon will develop, but I really like what I see. The guy is listed at 6'0", 195 lb. But the guy has tree-trunks for legs and big arms... looks close to 6'0"/6'1", 215 lb.
Adrian Wilson can groom this guy, teach him the ropes, and when Adrian hangs up the cleats in 3 seasons, Harmon can step in at starting SS, and Tavon Wilson can fill the 'big nickel' role, and take away your best TE.
I loved the Ryan pick... prototype BB CB... very good COD, versatile, tough, smart, tackles wel, gets his hands on a ton of footballs (30 PBU, 7 INT's the past two season) and should excel in zone coverage.
Harmon was 6-0 196 at his Pro-Day, but the kid is lean/cut as most of it is muscle. Def moves well, rangy kid and physical based on the tape that I've seen.
Mbeaulieu07 great predraft work! Liked reading your posts alot. Very informative. My only disagreement is your thought about Ryan as "a proptotype BB CB" CB's lately have not been a strength of BB. He might be what Belichick likes to draft but is that really a good thing??? He drafted McCourtey as a #1 cornerback and he's been so inconsistent at corner that he had to be ultimately switched to safety in favor of a rookie cornerback last year. I'm pretty sure Belichick didn't draft McCourtey in the 1st round with intentions to be switched to a safety. Not to mention the many other draft busts in the past 10 years.
Happy to contribute... though I'm gonna be a bit depressed next wee without consistet draft talk, haha.
It's a fair question, though my point is, he has the skill set to be successful in BB's predominantly zone scheme... whether or not he takes advantage of the opporunity is up to him. I won't lump him in with other failures until he fails.
