  • Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn (JR)

    No idea how he doesn't have a thread yet. Leads the SEC and sacks and tackles for loss. Tall, explosive. If he stays for his SR year he may be the best DT in the country next year.

    I like him a lot. In fact, I really like watching Auburn's defense. I think Fairley is a fringe 1st rounder right now, and keeps moving up. He's scheme diversive and I wouldn't be surprised to see a 3-4 team grab him fairly early. I currently rank him 39th overall.

    Something that is refreshing to see from him is his motor. So many of the top DL prospects lately have questionable motors or reputations of taking plays off. Fairly is full tilt every play.

        His motor this year has been good. But his work ethic is something scouts have questioned. I havent seen it yet.

        He is almost as great of a prospect as Antoine Cason.
        my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
        <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
        <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
        <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

          I remember that Auburn vs MSST on Thursday night. He quite simply, took over the game.

                I was actually going to make this thread earlier today. Fairley has been the most dominant D-Lineman in college football this season. His first step and explosiveness are second to none in college football. He has impressive power and actually uses his hands well to disengage. I'm not sure there is a more talented DT in college football. The impression I got from things I've read is that his coaches is they felt that if he put it together and brought it consistently, he would be a dominant force - and he certainly has been that this year. If he can continue to play at this level, I see no reason why he can't be a top 15 pick this year.

                  I see no reason to think of him as a top 15 pick, but he's a legit talent. It's a good thing to see Cameron Heyward getting some competition.

                  Hopefully in a few weeks one of these is made for Christian Ballard.

                    Why not?

                    Is his lack of size, athleticism, explosiveness, production or level of competition that's holding him back? Or is it the fact the he has outplayed every DT in the country?

                      Has a shot of being drafted higher than Clayborn, he'll be a fast riser as the season goes along and through the post-season draft process.

                      But from the small amount I've seen of Fairley, I've been very impressed.
                      Once again, a small sampling.

                          Oh because I'm not locking anybody into anything right now...He and Ballard are still my favorite 3-4 DE prospects in this draft.

                            Well you just locked him as not a top 15 pick

                              I have 6 DL in my Top 15. Dareus, Heyward, Quinn, Clayborn, Fairley and D. Bowers. Can prob put A. Smith (If he declares) in there too to make it 7. Are there any OL you have rated ahead of those 7? I don't. Strange year. There are some other pretty good ones too like; C.Ballard, C.Jordan,A. Bailey and D. Nevis. Double-digit 1st rounders by DL? Sure looks that way.
