Hmmm a CB. You know I do remember hearing that Keenan Lewis was considered as a possible safety so maybe that's a plan.

Butler has good size and straight line speed for the position but lacks great change of direction in coverage and lateral quickness in pure man schemes. He isn’t a physical tackler and needs to use his hands better to separate from blockers. Butler understands angles and how to leverage the ball but consistency is lacking. He needs to become more comfortable tracking the ball to make plays as a pass defender. Butler is a better athlete than football player but has the tools to develop into a solid NFL defender. He is a bit of a project and may contribute early as a rolled up corner in two deep coverage’s as well as special teams.

Sylvester has been a highly productive player for the Utah defense over the past three seasons. He has a good frame to gain additional bulk and this should help his overall game at the next level. Sylvester is a high energy defender that has excellent instincts and is rarely out of position. He has some trouble taking on large lineman between the tackles and is best when covered up. Sylvester does a nice job maintaining leverage with proper angles and hand use to work through traffic. He has better range than his timed speed would indicate and gets to the pile often outside the hashes. Stevenson has excellent quickness, balance and agility in coverage but needs to improve his ability when in a blitz mode. Sylvester is an excellent collegiate football player that should eventually start in the NFL.

We drafted two OLB's, and one ILB. Harrison is on his last legs, so one of those two OLB's has to step up soon. The other OLB will at the very least provide depth. So we'll have two starters and a backup at OLB including Woodley. So what? And then one more at ILB.

Dwyer is a big, powerful ball carrier that has had a lot of production at Georgia Tech but some of the numbers could be inflated due to the style of offense the Yellow Jackets run. The triple option tends to put ball carriers in wide open run lanes that won’t always be available to the pro style attack. He is a one-cut ball carrier that will stick his foot in the ground and hit the seam at full speed. He shows good balance on contact, runs through his share of arm tackles and shows surprising speed for his size. He is the kind of back that most teams are looking for as a featured ball carrier but will need some work on the passing game as far as blocking or running routes out of the backfield

Johnson stunned that Dwyer hasn’t been picked
1:22 pm April 24, 2010, by Doug Roberson

That Jonathan Dwyer has yet to be drafted stuns Paul Johnson, his former coach at Georgia Tech.

At one time projected to be a first-round pick when he announced in January he was leaving school after three seasons, Dwyer remains available as the draft churns through the fifth round.

Twelve running backs have been selected ahead of him at this point.

“Someone is going to get a heck of a football player,” Johnson said after Saturday’s T-Day game at Bobby Dodd Stadium. “If there are 90 guys better than him I haven’t seen them.

“It’s unbelievable.”

After rushing for 1,395 yards as a sophomore to earn ACC player of the year honors, he rushed for 1,395 more as a junior last season in helping the Yellow Jackets win the ACC.

When he announced he was turning pro, draft analysts questioned Dwyer’s weight, ability to catch the ball, blocking and pass-catching skills. He played at around 240 pounds in Tech’s spread-option, where he wasn’t asked to pass-block or catch, though he did snag a few passes, notably against FSU and against Iowa in the Orange Bowl

A toe injury sustained in the bowl game hampered his training for the NFL Combine, where he ran a relatively slow 40 time and weighed 227 pounds, seven pounds more than his target weight. But the toe healed and a slimmer Dwyer bounced back at Tech’s pro day a month later to run a 4.52, seven-thousandths faster than his time at the combine and within the top-10 times posted in Indianapolis.

Analysts also wondered whether Dwyer could transition from lining up close to the line of scrimmage, as he did in Tech’s spread-option, to the deeper start required in a pro-style offense. Dwyer pointed out after Tech’s pro day that he was used in that formation during his freshman season at Tech when Chan Gailey was coach.

Dwyer would be the fourth Yellow Jacket taken in this year’s draft, following defensive end Derrick Morgan to Tennessee with the 16th pick, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to Denver with the 22nd pick, and safety Mhttp://blogs.ajc.com/georgia-tech-sports/2010/04/24/johnson-stunned-that-dwyer-hasnt-been-picked/?cxntfid=blogs_georgia_tech_sportsorgan Burnett to Green Bay in the third round (71st overall) on Friday.

I'm liking the picks of Scott and Dwyer. Scott is the insurance in case we cant sign Colon longer term and he could be the RT of the future. Dwyer brings that big back in that is a change from the quick feet of Mendenhall and will get some carries.

Even Sylvester is a nice addition to the ILB depth that will have to make a name playing special teams to get on the roster.

Now, I am hoping for either Kurt Coleman or Barry Church at S.

Georgia Tech RB Jonathan Dwyer and USC tight end Anthony McCoy failed NFL Scouting Combine drug tests, according to Fox Sports.

This may sound worse than it actually is for both prospects. Dwyer's positive test was reportedly "triggered by a prescription medication that Dwyer has NFL clearance to use for a pre-existing condition." It's not expected to affect his draft status. McCoy tested positive for marijuana, something that is nothing new for potential draft picks.

I'm liking the picks of Scott and Dwyer. Scott is the insurance in case we cant sign Colon longer term and he could be the RT of the future. Dwyer brings that big back in that is a change from the quick feet of Mendenhall and will get some carries.

Even Sylvester is a nice addition to the ILB depth that will have to make a name playing special teams to get on the roster.

Now, I am hoping for either Kurt Coleman or Barry Church at S.

Do you think we could get Church or Coleman in the 7th?

I honestly thought Coleman's stock was rising and he was gonna be in the 4th round. Same with Church in maybe the 5th....the kid is a tweener between S and OLB at 220lbs, but a 4-time all MAC player has gotta be a player.

I'd personally like to see Church as a backup SS prospect.

Antonio Brown

Biography: Three-year starter who's won All-Conference honors since his freshman season and was twice named MAC Special Teams Player of the Year. Junior receiving totals included a team leading 110/1198/9. Also averaged 13.5 yards on 20 punt returns, adding two scores and 22.1 yards on 35 kick returns with another touchdown. Sophomore receiving totals included 93/998/7 after 102/1003/6 as a freshman. Averaged 20.5 yards on 20 punt returns in 2008 and 26.2 yards on 40 kick returns in 2007.

Positives: Explosive skill player who always produces whenever the ball is in his hands. Consistent hand catcher at receiver who nicely settles into the open spot on the field and works to make himself an available target. Gets vertical and adjusts or contorts in midair to grab the errant pass. Displays good eye/hand coordination, skill running after the reception and plays with a large degree of intelligence. Tough and battles opponents to come away with the ball. Shows a burst of speed and keeps his feet moving on contact. Elusive return specialist displaying the ability to avoid opponents, find the open lanes and quickly get through them.

Negatives: Lacks the size to be a true number one receiver. Never presented himself as a vertical threat on a consistent basis and Central Michigan.

Analysis: Brown has been one of our favorite receivers the past three years and terrific college player who consistently produces on the field. He lacks classic size for the next level yet will be an asset to a team as a third receiver and return specialist.

Projection: 4-5

You know, they didn't ignore the OL, we got a couple potentially good back-up(future starters?) at OLB. We got a starting CB back, and some more depth. We got a couple speedy type WR's with good hands. And we got a RB that many thought could be a first round pick a few months ago. When you look at it overall, with the draft and the trade, it doesn't look too bad.

Hotrodder07
04-24-2010, 04:47 PM
Don't really know much about this guy. NFL.com says:

Worthington was a productive three-year starter for the Buckeyes defense. He has excellent size and strength with average athleticism. He is more of a run-stopper than a pass rusher but does show an effective bull rush off the edge. He has good natural power to anchor and leverages well with a strong initial punch at the line of scrimmage. He understands angles and how to restrict running lanes but doesn't have great range in pursuit. He plays hard and shows toughness in the trenches, but he needs an expanded pass rush packages to contribute more in this phase of the game. Worthington has limitations but could provide versatility along the defensive line.

I'm still a bit puzzled by Chris Scott over Kyle Calloway.....but either way its depth at OT. Maybe we can pick up a S as an UDFA like Coleman or Church. I dont know if Mundy and Allen are the answers there for depth. All in all, a good draft.

Word from my buddy in Georgia is this guy is an absolute stud. And if he can keep his weight under control, he will be the perfect compliment to Mendenhall. A good kid, high character and good grades. Scored around 10 TDs as a true freshman running a pro-set style offense. Bottom line, by him dropping to the sixth round, we got a steal.

Best Special teams draft we've had in years. Overall I would give them a B, getting Mcfadden for a 5th rd pick was huge. He may not be a star, but he plays well within our system. Pouncey was another great 1st rd pick for us, the RB was also a vey good pick for us in that round. In my mock I had us taking a RB in the 6th, did'nt think Dwyer would be here.

Yeah, I remember that draft being a bit surprising that they went WR Sanders in the 3rd round, when I thought Corey Wooten would be our DE of the future or Navarro Bowman could add to the LB corps.

Then, with aging safeties and weak pass rush I was hoping for either Kurt Coleman FS or George Selvie DE/OLB. I hadn't even seen AB play and I don't think the Steelers had until they went to work out Dan LeFevour at Central Michigan. I think they did OK without my help. :hatsoff:

If I were here for this thread id probably be just as stumped as everyone else. Glad that pick was made.

I think it's funny that the could have drafted Al Woods, Arthur Moats, and Blount. That would have saved some time :chuckle:

Yeah.

I remember wanting Blount instead of Dwyer anyways. I also noticed Al Woods a year or 2 earlier when looking at Tyson Jackson of LSU. Still thought Corey Wooten would be a solid 5-tech.

I think I realistically wanted :
RD1 Bulaga
RD2 an ILB Lee, Spikes or Angerer
RD3 Wooten
RD4 Perrish Cox or Kam Chancellor
RD5 Matt Tennant C
Rd 6 Blount

We'd still be waiting to see Kam Chancellor play at SS.

Yeah. But Seattle wouldn't have won a Super Bowl. So that's a huge positive right there.

Bulaga has turned out to be a pretty good player. I wanted to see the Steelers pick him up too, though I'm a Hawkeye homer admittedly.

I wanted Pouncey, and I got him.

I wanted Na'Varro Bowman.

And, as much as I harp on him currently, back then, I wanted Cam Thomas.

NOTE: I loved & still think that Emmanual Sanders was a good pick. It didn't work out, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a good pick. If he hadn't gotten injured in XLV, I think that it's an entirely different outcome. Speaking of injuries, that was his downfall (which allowed AB to seize playing time away from Sanders).

At least you can admit you are a homer. I just thought that OT was more important than C at that point in the draft. Steelers have made it work with guys like Legursky, Velasco, Wallace at center, but still struggle with the Tackle position at times.

So the Cam Thomas hate is because you were jilted... :toofunny:

I've never been a fan of addressing WR when you have so many other holes. You can have a good WR on the field, but it does no good if you don't have a line to keep your QB upright to throw the ball to the WR?

A buddy of mine wanted Bulaga, which would would have been my 1-a. The reason that I wanted Pouncey a little more, was because I was tired of seeing Justin Hartwig allowing Ngata to smack BB in the face.

Re: Cam Thomas
Indeed. I hold a grudge like no other. LOL

Re: WR vs. OT
Agreed. It all starts with the O-line, but that that point in time, I thought that Colon would be a decent RT, or at worst, a decent RG.

I was tired of watching our LT's get abused, so wanted Bulaga with the plan that he could play LT.

Colon was a good RT or RG until injuries.
