Nice job boys!
Seems the consensus is, Graham was an absolute beast out there. I think the one play I did catch was him owning Ciron Black (atleast I think it was Ciron Black, LT, had and LSU looking helmet) for a sack. His play this week is going a long way towards challenging BB's height premium on 3-4 OLB's. He could be utilized in a more pass rush only type role similar to Elvis Dumervil until he develops some zone coverage skills. Did anyone see if he was asked top operate in space/drop into coverage yesterday?
Also good news on Odrick/Williams, I think both are certainly options for NE high in this draft, Williams as a versatile, potential replacement for Wilfork if he's not on the roster next year and Odrick as the ideal fit as a big, tall, nasty 3-4 DE that can do it all.
Did they by chance talk about Cooper and his ability (or lack there of) to beat his man at the line vs. press/man coverage and create seperation in space?
Too bad there is no more feedback on Rolle, I was really interested to see how he played. I'll have to check the regular draft sites to see what the scouts said.
Faucet, I hear you on Blount. I'm just so high on the thought of NE bringing in pure character "football players" to help change the overall culture and mentality of the locker room, that Blount goes against my beliefs. Then again, we're talking about kids here, I'm sure a lot of these guys get into a scrape every now and again, most just don't throw haymakers on national television, ha.
A lot of us share your thought process, unfortunately, I think a lot of NFL teams do too, which could make it hard to trade down this year.
