vernon gholston II
I see around some mocks having us take him, some people say he compares with Terrell Suggs. Will he make it to us and is he a good player that would fit here??
vernon gholston II
You guys are making my first mock draft look pretty bad.
Houston is a lot more agile and quick than Gholston is, and has better developed pass rush skills.
From what I have read about the Senior Bowl week practices, Allen Baiiey seems like a Gholston doppleganger.
I don't get the Gholston comparisons. Houston has played both with his hand in the ground and this year as a stand up 3-4 backer. He does not appear to be the athlete that that Gholston is either. He looks like he is a 4.75 guy. He has a quick jump but that is all that I seen. But i only seen him 4 or 5 times and only twice playing standing up.
I don't think he is a top 20 guy but in that 20-40 range. With Miller, Qinnn, and Aldon Smith ranked above him he could drop to 30 for the jets. Some teams may also have Beal ranked above him.
ditto for Colin McCarthy and Marcus Van Dyke and even Len Hankerson to an extent....
Where do you see Hankerson and Van Dyke going in the draft? I think both could be starters in the NFL.
i really did not like van dyke coming into the season off the film but seeing him the last two weeks i said, "huh- not bad...not bad at all"..
McCarthy looked good on specials and attacked the ball real well but he must not have a lot of speed. On way play in particular he was in chase mode and looked like he was going backwards compared to who he was running after.
Vernon Gholston tackled Chris Johnson down the field to save a TD!Bailey has definitely dropped but there's a lot there to like....its' not because of lack of effort- he ran down a RB from 30 yards on Wednesday-
Gholston also played DE/LB in college, and it was a big part of how he was marketed. The amount of times I heard that this guy played the "elephant position" or something in college...I hope he's not as good an athlete because I'd really like to avoid drafting him.I don't get the Gholston comparisons.

Allen Bailey isn't afraid of contact, so he has that going for him....
just finished a boatload of UGA film and confirmed what i thought about Houston....recommendations if anyone has the availability...
UGA vs GT/UCF:
Houston primarily stood up over tackle as a 3-4 OLB and looked awful...hesitant, slow to react and worse yet- little to poor pursuit speed chasing the action...no skill in coverage and did not rush the passer well...
UGA vs UK:
Lined up in a three point stance and was unstoppable- numerous sacks, forced fumbles and created general mayhem..problem is he looks very small- short and thin compared to the o-linemen...
