Agreed. He looks good on gamefilm and delivered at the combine - would be a solid pickup in the 1st for the Jets. Man wish we had a 2nd round pick as well so we could pick up one of the excellent DL prospects that will be available then
I think my Wilkerson is becoming my favorite DL in this draft, even over Heyward. Both of those guys could change this D IMO...I wish Cam Jordan didn't destroy this draft process so thoroughly...
Even with the strong 40 Ballard at 6'4 283 is kind of disappointing...I remember when I first heard of him and Googled him he was 6'6 295...then he started shrinking...Heyward managed to have this not happen to him as he came in with the very respectable 6'5 295.
You have to remember he is not auditioning just for 3-4 teams, The jets and the pats can ask him to put 10-15 lbs on , the maybe he runs a 4.8 or so.
7th round, may not get drafted at all....tough to watch and sad to say....ran in the 4.9's and can't move laterally...
Geezus....thats tough to read as a BC grad. Just love the guy and he was an awesome player before he got sick.
Blinded a bit by my homerism, but I gotta think he can get it together and be a contributer somehow. Wanted to compare his speed issue to Spikes last year, but i just looked and even the "slow" spikes ran 4.76.
If he is there in the 7th, I hope we pull the trigger...even as a character guy and special teamer.
It looks like these guys have 1st round grades from some experts.
Obviously not all will go in the 1st and the top 6-7 are pretty much a lock to go top 20.
Which will be "over drafted" like Alualu last year? I feel like after missing a whole season and then coming out and blowing up the Shrine Game/Combine, someone will take Marvin Austin early.
Who will fall and be available at 30? I'd like to see JJ Watt still there when the Jets pick.
