    I love Brinkley, he is a great football player...but, I dont think he's right for this team. He's probably not going to be a 3 down LB right out of the gates. His coverage ability is just bad. As simple as that. He's pretty stiff/robotic in coverage...as for run defense and pass rush ability, he gives you a helluva lot but again, that may not be what we're looking for. He's pretty much Bradie James...we need someone who can play some nickel LB for us, in place of Brooking if possible. Then that player could hopefully be groomed into something more and be ready to take over when Keith departs. So yeah, I love Jasper and love his potential but, as for the actual fit here...it's not that good.

    It's nice to have another SCAR/Cowboys fan...a rare breed. :D

      Sure is, I know a few Clemson and Cowboys fans, but it's nice to have a South Carolina and cowboys fan.

      Anyways, we'll have to agree to disagree. I think someone is going to land him and he will be one of the better LBs to come out of this draft. His knee is only going to become stronger and someone is going to coach him up to be a better pass defender.

      However, I'd really like to see us land Norwood as a pass rusher for next year. He's my favorite gamecock.

        Dont get me wrong...I think Jasper is going to make a team very happy but, he doesnt really fit our need at ILB. We're going to need someone who is decent to good in coverage, right now. The fact that Brooking may have to play 3 downs along side James is scary.

          Brinkley reminds me of Jeremiah Trotter. Brings a lot of passion to the game and is good going forward and sidewards, but backwards is an area that could use work.

            Darcel McBath, 6-0, 198 pounds
            Safety, Texas Tech


            Transcribed by Jeff Schudel NHBrowns@sbcglobal.net


            Q: What kind of safety are you going to be in the NFL?

            A: A ball-hawking safety. Make plays on balls. Thatís the kind of safety Iím going to be.




            Q: You had seven interceptions as a senior. You must have pretty good hands.

            A: Over the years Iíve developed my hands. I see the ball coming in, I catch it.
            I dropped only one in my career.




            Q: There seems to be quite a disparity in predraft reports about where you rank among safeties.

            A: A lot of people have asked me about that the last few days. Itís part of the process.
            Iíll try to show my skills here. Hopefully theyíll go back and look at the film and I
            can get a little more pub and theyíll move me up a little bit. Iím trying to improve
            my stock here at the combine.


            Q: You have a reputation of being a good special teams player.

            A: Throughout my career Iíve played everything. Iíll do anything they ask of me.




            Q: Are you a hard-hitting safety?

            A: I hit hard. You have to let everybody feel it sometimes.



            Q: Have you always played football?

            A: I started in Pee-Wee. I stopped when I got to high school and started up again
            as a junior. Then I earned a scholarship, went to college, had a successful career and here I am now.


            Q: What made you skip your first two years in high school?

            A: I was a basketball guy. I had basketball fever. I played AAU basketball. Ii didnít
            have time for football. I played basketball year round.




            Q: What do you hope to accomplish here at the combine?

            A: I want to show how athletic I am. Teams want to see my range, how fast I can run,
            how high I can jump Ė my measureables.




            Q: How did your time at Tech prepare you for the NFL?

            A: I played some of the best receivers in the country. Passing on almost every down,
            I think Iíll be prepared in that aspect. Iíll definitely be ready to defend the pass.

            I got the best of (Crabtree) most of the time.






            Q: What are your coverage skills like?

            A: I have good cover skills. I was a corner before I moved to free safety. Iíve used
            them over the years. As a safety I moved down to cover the inside receivers.



            Q: When did you make that move?

            A: my sophomore year, so I was a safety for three years.




            Q: Are those low rankings a chip on your shoulder?

            A: I think you always should have a chip on your shoulder. Even if they say good
            things about you, turn it into a negative. Unfortunately, I have a lot negative things
            said about me. I feel I have some things to prove, and Iíll prove them.

            I know what Iím capable of. My film shows what Iím capable of. Anybody who wants to go
            watch the film, go watch it. I stand behind it. I think Iím a great player. I think Iím
            the best free safety here. Iíll have time to prove it if I get in the league. Iím going
            to compete this week and show what I can do.



            Q: Did anyone tell you where you might be drafted?

            A: Iíve heard everywhere from third to fifth. It depends on what I do here.

            Here's a guy I really like because I think he can play either safety spot and we wouldn't need to use our 2nd rounder or 3rd rounder to address Safety. A local product of the state who has faced A LOT of passing in the Big 12 since their adaption of more spread passing offenses. A converted corner with good size and adequate speed. I think he's got some of the better instincts in this Safety class and he's flying under the radar right now. Wish I had more video to show you, but it's limited... he is underrated afterall... ;)

              On another note your dreaming...you don't bring in a backup to develop when you have Kitna....I think "if"...and thats a big if...you role the dice on a guy who has the chance to gain a return in the next three years...maybe someone falls and we've addressed our needs...but adding a ivy league backup to play third string makes no sense...guy would be PS at best.
              I'm really hyping him because I think he's a guy who no one has heard of...not because I think he'd be a great pick for us.

              As far as going to an Ivy League school...I looked, and realized I would be happier here, both during my collegiate years and in the long run. Middlebury may not have the prestige of Harvard, Dartmouth or Yale, but employers know who we are.

                D he is a nice safety prospect...but I'd rather go Pegues/Bruton personally.

                  Yeah, I dunno about that... but... he's had absolutely no mention here and I thought I'd give him some love. I think he's better than most people think. Not saying he's the best of the best or anything. I'd be happy if we spend our 2nd and 3rd rounders on another position and then grabbed him in the 4th.

                  Round 4: WR Brandon Tate

                  Round 4: S Darcel McBath

                  :D Ye-yah!

                    I read a scouts comment that said he was a 5th round prospect with a ability to go slightly earlier...so I think your about perfect on the position to land him...I just happen to like Pegeus and Bruton more...as the have more of a NFL body and could contribute better on coverage units.

                        None reported...but it would definitely make sense...and fans here have been talking about him. Brace seems like dallas's #1 priority in the draft tho.

                          Mayock has a hard on for Mcbath. I think he's still his 5th safety our something along those line.

                            I am aboard the Brinkley hype. I have been hoping he ends up in Cincinnati for a long time. For Dallas, I really like Rashad Johnson. He is a leader which the defense really needs.

                              Between Hamlin/Ware/James/Newman this defense has enough leaders imo.

                              Johnson isn't going to be a leader of anything...and now that we brought in Gerald it just doesn't make a ton of sense to add a player like him unless you think he is the best value on the board and is going to be a good player.

                                It still makes a lot sense, actually. Sensabaugh has a troubled past, is only signed on for one year, and may be facing a suspension to start off the year. Safety isnt as glaring a need anymore but, it's still pretty big and could def. be targeted with that 2nd round pick, even if you think there may be better players on the board. There is no depth and there is no guarantee that Scandrick is actually moving to that "star" position. ILB, S, O-Line probably make the most sense now in the 2nd.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
