I would LOVE to get Godfrey!!!!!..I had stated before that he would be the most versatile Steeler DB since Carnell Lake

If it happens I think he may end up being a Safety like Lake, not really a starting CB. Here is a scouting report excerpt from nfl.com.


There are some concerns about his transition -- Godfrey isn't as fast on the field as his timed speed -- which could result in his being moved back to safety in the NFL, at least initially. There are some concerns, but Godfrey's physicality and raw athleticism will result in an early-round selection despite the fact that he remains a bit unpolished.

Rare combination of size and speed. ... Well-built athlete who has the physique of a safety and track star speed. ... Versatile, having played his first two seasons at safety before making the transition to cornerback for his junior and senior seasons. ... Flashed ability previously in his career, but enjoyed a breakout senior campaign. ... Rare pure speed. ... Significant improvement as a senior in terms of technique, play recognition and creating turnovers. ... Physical defender. ... Reliable open-field tackler who aggressively supports the run from his cornerback position.

As a 3 round pick he would be a steal...look for him to rise up the boards. We could use a Safety who is strong on run support but also has speed. He could also play Cb in the nickel and would be a very good special teamer....!!!:thumbsup:

G'day guys. I have been away for 8 days and in that time loads of potential picks have come in for visits.

Its amazing how many are guys that we have all been throwing around.

Godfrey would be awesome at FS and nickel CB. I say bring him on.

Other visitors that I have had an eye on include Moore, Langford and my sleeper Ryan Torain (keep an eye out for him come day 2 or UDFA if we are really lucky).

Good to be back with my draft cap on.

Godfrey would be nice... I guess his speed is the concern which is the reson he may play safety. As much as I like a new CB, (NOT CRAZY about the ones we have... IMHO Ike was a BIG waste of a contract...) I still would like to see two strong safeties.

His speed isnt going to be a problem...he just ran a 4.38 at his pro-day! Some have him as a safety because he played there until his last two years of college. However, that being said...some draft experts are saying that when he completely gets comfortable with the CB position, his ceiling is off the charts.

Steelers | Peterson receiving interest from team
Sun, 30 Mar 2008 09:36:31 -0700

Josh Buchanan, of NFLDraftBible.com, reports Northwest Missouri State TE Michael Peterson is receiving interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers after his Pro Day performance.

http://www.kffl.com/team/30/nfl

What is interesting is that Nfldraftscout.com has him listed as a fullback.
This is more the role I would also see him playing in.

Name: Mike Peterson
College: Northwest Missouri State Number: 89
Height: 6-2 Weight: 247
Position: FB Pos2: TE/H-back
Class/Draft Year: rSr/2008
40 Time: 4.59 40 Low: 4.54 40 High: 4.67
Projected Round: Stock:
Rated number 11 out of 95 FB's 409 / 2539 TOTAL

02/05/08 - Texas vs. The Nation Review: TE Mike Peterson (NW Missouri State)- Very productive as a moving tight end in college, Peterson showed good athleticism and strength running through arm tackles and tightroping the sidelines on a fantastic effort during the game.

01/31/08 - Texas vs. The Nation - Texas Team Wednesday Practice: Showed more fluidity and quickness in short routes today. He won't be a downfield presence, though, and didn't show much of a vertical trying to get to a ball over his head. Caught some balls away from the body and others in his chest. Does not show much pop in his blocking, but may be flexible enough to do so on the run.

4.43 or 4.38 ......not much difference. You could lose that much time on a bad start....Its why again, I dont put too much stock in 40 times.

His scouting report on nfl.com says he has sprinter speed, but sometimes doesnt look like it on the field. That is what concerns me is he can be fast in a straight line, but doesnt play with "football speed" well enough.

Maybe its just that he wasnt comfortable yet at corner.

Thats my understanding....I have read that with coaching he may be a steal outside of the first round

well running a 4.38 and a 4.43 does actually make a lot of diff in a skilled pos... that could be the difference in the millions u make.. i mean some players at the skill pos. were soly drafted on there 40 time, b/c they knew that player can keep up with any one or run away from anyone

Chad Johnson ran a 4.45.

Not sure if WR is classed as a "skill pos." or if that stopwatch speed hampered his ability to run away from anyone?....Drafting sombody primarily based on their 40 time is just wrong and the only ones that do it are us fans:thmbdown:

Texasteel
03-31-2008, 02:39 PM
Where I agree that the 40 time should not be the only thing you look at, maybe not even the main think, the difference between 4.43 and 4.38 is about 1/2 a step, and that is all a good WR needs.

The important thing about Godfrey, is he coachable. Most of the kids that come out of Iowa are coachable.

Now, keep in mind that I have been an Iowa fan all my life, and have been hoping to get a hawkeye on the Steelers for years. That may shade my opinion a little.

.

I agree entirely with you Texas Hawkeye..Steel.

That 1/2 a step is something a guy can pickup from going to a pre combine training camp and learning how to start properly. My wife was a regional track champion at 400m and I know the benefit of how technique can improve your start and accel phase.....and subsequent time.

No CB or WR gets in a sprinters stance to play the game and that's why its more important to see how these guys play in games instead of relying on the stopwatch and 5/100th of a second.

I hope you get your Hawkeye on the squad and its a good pick. I liked Fred Russell a lot, but he's no Ronnie Harmon:wink02:

El-Gonzo Jackson
03-31-2008, 03:10 PM
the difference between 4.43 and 4.38 is about 1/2 a step, .

MAN!!!!! you are good!!!

I did the math and based on a speed of 21 mph....0.05 seconds works out to 1.54 ft, or just a shade over 18 inches, so the difference is basically half a step!!


(a 9.2 second 100m equates to 24.3 mph and a 3.64- 40, so I went with the more conservative average of 21 mph)

Bottom line, I care more about my football players being able to tackle, block, change direction etc. than outrun a guy by 18 inches over a 40 yard sprint from a track start.

03-31-2008, 07:01 PM

Not that long, but then again I can calculate the distance from the upper deck of the stadium to ground level by dropping a beer and using only the time it takes to get there and the 4th quadratic equation. Its simple physics:coffee:

:sofunny:...look like Tarzan...play like Jane.

I would say that straight line speed does come into play with certain positions...but NOT at the expense of production. Idealy you would want a productive player with great measurables.

Troy Williamson and Ryan Leaf are a good examples of players that measure well but were unproductive.

Virginia Linebacker Kai Parham was a good example of a player that was ultra-productive in college but didnt have the measurables to play in the pros.

Saw some video of Bryan Smith last night on NFL network and the kid looked explosive.

Sure it was at McNeese St and not big competition, but he was just exploding off the ball and dipping his shoulder around the linemen, then at the QB like a heat seeking missile. Mayock had him as a 4th or 5th round guy that would play OLB. Here is his profile.
