Day 3. Rounds 4-7

Recommended Posts

Here is hoping Tyrell Crosby, Ot with good strenth and quick feet is drafted, & or Bradly Boseman, center, (since no Bama players have been selected, shocking) taking a chance on Anthonio Calloway, best prospect wide out even with the pot issues..

 

Maurice Hurst, because of a great deal at this point, everyone loves a big defensive tackle.

 

Need a power back for short yardage, Bo Scarborough, Bama is a good pick..

 

Just to name a few....

The nephew of former college All-American and NFL Pro Bowl left tackle Bryant McKinnie didn't make an immediate impact with the Tide due to the team's depth at the position. He redshirted in 2013, and played in just one game the following year. Averett was going to compete for playing time as a sophomore, but biceps and elbow injuries before the season squashed that hope. He also suffered a broken finger before the playoff semifinal against Michigan State, allowing him to play in just six games as a special teamer. Averett finally got his shot in 2016, starting 13 games and playing in all 15 (48 tackles, three for loss, sack, eight pass breakups). He was picked on regularly but used his toughness to stick with plays. Averett was the team's defensive MVP in their national semifinal win over Washington (eight tackles, sack, forced fumble). He was a starter all 14 games of his senior season, posting 48 stops, four for loss, an interception, and eight pass breakups in 2017. Averett has the athleticism for the position, posting the top long jump mark in high school nationally as a junior (25 feet, two inches) and winning New Jersey state titles in the 55-meter dash and high jump. He got a chance at receiver before his sophomore year, but cornerback is his home for now, and in the future.

Young has had a rough go of things at times in his life. He lived with a friend during his childhood because his mother, a single parent, had troubles paying the rent. Then, during his sophomore season with the Bruins, he battled through the death of his grandmother and a cancer diagnosis for his father. Now, NFL scouts are giving him high marks for his on-field performance, especially after a first-team All-Pac-12 senior year where he led UCLA with 110 tackles, 8.5 for loss, one sack, and three passes deflected. Young had a strong junior season, as well, and coaches voted him second-team all-conference for his efforts. He started all 12 games in 2016, making 90 tackles, 8.5 for loss, with five sacks, three passes defensed, and three fumble recoveries. The previous year, Young started 12 of 13 games, posting 69 stops, five for loss, and two forced fumbles. He even started six games as a true freshman, playing all 13 contests and recording 35 stops. Young was a highly sought-after four-star recruit (ranked a top 10 linebacker prospect nationally) coming out of the New Orleans area.

Round 7/PFA
NFL Comparison
D.J. Alexander
Overview
Young is a lean, run-around WILL linebacker who has the speed to pursue plays all over the field, but may lack the consistency and play demeanor needed to find many NFL reps. He will run well at the combine and should offer special teams help if given the chance. Young's speed and athletic ability could land him on a roster, but he may be looking over his shoulder every offseason.
Strengths
Angular, tapered build
Off to the races when the ball flows wide
Smooth athlete with plus flexibility and agility
Has the quickness to play ahead of blocks
Able to read basic keys and follow them to the running lane
Has stalking speed and pace once he gets locked in on the running back
Rangy linebacker who can stay on the field for all three downs
Has the feet to cover backs out of the backfield
Able to drop and shade passing lanes
Should become an immediate special teams contributor

Scott was recruited by Maryland and Kentucky out of Rock Hill High School in South Carolina, but he was a non-qualifier academically. So he enrolled at Ellsworth Community College for three years, redshirting in 2013 and finishing his career there as an all-conference performer in 2015 (45 receptions, 668 yards, nine touchdowns). Scott joined NMSU in 2016, leading the team with five touchdown catches (23 receptions, 283 yards). Scouts got to see his full game in 2017, as did Sun Belt coaches, who voted him first-team all-conference because he accumulated 1,079 yards and nine scores on 76 receptions. His one-handed touchdown catch against Arizona State was one of the best plays of the season, showing scouts how he can combine his athleticism and strong hands.

Rounds 5-6
NFL Comparison
Kenny Golladay
Overview
Ascending prospect with rare height and length for the position. Scott saw both his production and confidence explode in 2017 and consistently found ways to win once the ball was in the air. Scott doesn't have the quickness to win underneath, but he does use stride length and hand fighting to create space for himself as a downfield threat. With experience outside and from the slot, Scott will be an intriguing prospect with backup wideout potential.
Strengths
Wiry frame with long arms and plus ball skills
Extremely competitive when ball is in the air
Extended catch radius and well-timed leaps make jump balls a likely loss for cornerbacks
Showed off ball skills and catch radius with jaw-dropping, one-handed touchdown catch against Arizona State
Plays stronger than lanky frame would indicate
Route contact does not disrupt him
Uses physicality at top of the route and down the field to create wider throwing windows for quarterbacks
Smart with route adjustments and works open for scrambling quarterbacks
Ball tracker with a feel for subtle hand work for late separation
Focus sharpens as the ball gets closer
Gets safeties leaning with quality head-fakes at his route stems on posts

Doesn't have foot quickness to avoid getting hung up by athletic press corners

Is slow to accelerate, bypass and stack cornerbacks when he gets a clean, outside release

Upright route-runner

Has prolonged gear down when getting into breaks and lacks sharpness coming out of them

Corners read his out-breaking routes easily and close them out

Missing a second gear to gain vertical separation over the top of cornerbacks

Very average play speed

Needs to prove he can secure the ball through direct contact at the catch-point

Stalk blocker who can be flung aside

Yep, this latest pick makes sense, Harbs guy all the way....

 

He's also had issues resulting in multiple suspensions over the past four years, two arrests in 2016 for possession of alcohol and presenting a fake ID at a club. Lasley was also suspended for three games in 2017....

 

 

Lasley has good size, great athleticism and is tremendously explosive. He also has one of the worst drop rates that you will find for a receiver over the last two years. He has home-run potential on the field and suspension issues off of it.

Jordan Lasley, wr UCLA...

He's no good if he can't catch. As for off the field issues.....makes no sense to bring this guy in unless he's seriously shown that he's learned from this and changed.

 

Strengths
Good size and great speed
Instant jets off snap to torment cornerbacks who crowd and miss with their punch
Devours coverage cushions
Gets to top speed quickly and creates early vertical separation
Seamless ability to change route angles
Schoolyard athleticism with smoothness of movement in all directions
Excellent bend to sink and explode out of breaks and give quarterbacks an open target
Aggressive working back to the throw when needed
Capable on all three levels
Stacker and tracker
Puts cornerbacks on his hip while focusing to bring the deep ball in
Has "to the house" catch and run potential
Uses strong stiff-arm to deny tacklers
Averaged 8.8 yards after catch in 2017

In his first year as a starter, all Elliott did was earn unanimous first-team All-American and All-Big 12 honors, as well as being named a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award that is presented to the nation's top defensive back. He tried for fourth nationally with six interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. The 12-game starter also totaled 63 tackles, 8.5 for loss, nine pass breakups, and three forced fumbles. Elliott started one game of 12 played as a sophomore, compiling 30 tackles, three for loss, an interception, and four pass breakups. In 2015, the former Under Armour All-American and all-state defensive back from Texas played in seven games on defense and special teams (13 tackles, two interceptions, one pass breakups, one forced fumble) despite missing time with an injury.

Analysis

Draft Projection
Rounds 4-5
Overview
Elliott has good size and is a physical defender who will need to play near the line of scrimmage to take advantage of his aggressiveness and minimize his athletic limitations. Scouts say he loves the game including the work that goes into it so he has a good shot of sticking on a roster as a backup strong safety with immediate coverage ability on kickoffs and punts. His draft stock will be tied heavily to his Combine workout.
Strengths
Well-built with NFL-caliber frame and good overall arm length
Good football intelligence
Quarterback of the secondary who works hard on the tape and gets his defense lined up
Plays with downhill mindset
Quality trigger after diagnosing hitch throws or running plays
Often activated as an additional linebacker
Had 8.5 tackles for loss in 2017
Embraces physicality of the position
Won't pass up a chance to make a statement with a big hit
Forced three fumbles in 2017
Decent tackle finisher for being tight-hipped
Had six interceptions this year and nine total over just 26 games

yer Bio
After two years of playing basketball for the Seahawks, Senat approached the football coaches about joining the team. His height and athleticism led them to accept, potentially as a tight end prospect. But he agreed to play right tackle after coaches saw his ability there. Senat started all 11 games in both 2016 and 2017 at that spot, showing off raw ability that could be harnessed at the next level. He was an occasional starter (22 times in 104 games) in four years on the hoops team at Wagner, averaging about two points and three rebounds per game.

Analysis
By Lance Zierlein
NFL Analyst
Draft Projection
Round 7/PFA
Overview
Senat lacks bulk but looks the part in the uniform if he could add functional mass. Unfortunately, he looks better than he plays at this point and needs a great deal of technique work as both a run blocker and pass protector. Senat is a project who might be able to find a spot on a practice squad while he works on getting bigger and better.
Strengths
Athletic, long-limbed frame with tapered waist and room for additional muscle and mass
Possesses very good reactive athleticism with ability to make sudden adjustments to moving targets
Good quickness in pass slides
Hands stayed tucked and punch-ready
Can make fluid transitions from block to block on work-ups
Runs feet through wash down blocks and down blocks
Weaknesses
Lacks necessary mass and muscle
Will have to eat and live in the weight room for a year or two
Ducks head and bends at waist when attempting to drop pad level
Fails to gain leverage at point of attack
Needs to get stronger
Can't keep blocks centered
Plays too far forward with weight and allows smaller men to play around him too quickly
Hand strength is below average
Punch timing and accuracy are off
Has trouble anchoring up against power
