2012's Hardest Hitters
 
Which prospects dish out the biggest shots? I'm talking any position. Running backs who run over linebackers and safeties, linebackers and safeties who stop offensive players in their tracks, offensive lineman who routinely put other 300-lb men on their asses, defensive linemen who do the same. Videos welcome.

'Taze obviously comes to mind. Plays pretty often just STOP when they get to him/he gets to them him.

Head-hunters or just hard tacklers? Michael Johnson and Bradham are hard hitters , but they don't necessarily head-hunt.

TACKLE 02-11-2012 10:28 PM

Taze, Hightower, Ronnell, Bradham and I'd throw Kirkpatrick and Barron in there as non-LB's.

I'm not talking about guys who send players flying through the air missing a cleat or a helmet just because they got caught not paying attention; I'm talking about guys who straight-up, one-on-one hit a guy as hard as they can and have the strength, size, and violence, basically, to win most of those particular battles. "See-you-in-the-hole" style. The crazy mofos.

Hi! New guy over here.
If you are looking for someone on the offensive side of the ball, then David DeCastro is your guy. I mean the guy just dominates at the point of attack totally controling defensive tackles, hits the second level with autority and is the best pulling guard i have seen at the collegiate level.
The best prospect at his position in a long, long time.

Doug Martin from Boise State RB I think will be a tough noise to noise Running back the league like a Frank Gore type back.

Vontaze Burfict.

If you're looking for somebody that plays with shear nastiness, will hit you square in the teeth, and legitimately frighten opposing teams, it's him.

Markelle Martin has to be on this list.

LSU S Brandon Taylor laid a ridiculous hit on Vick Ballard in the Senior Bowl tues practice. I don't know if that was more Vick than Brandon but still notable. South Carolina S Antonio allen a later or undrafted guy but also laid the wood.

100% agreed, best OG prospect in years, has the potential to be perennial All-Pro.

I'm gunna throw Amini Silatolu in here, I know he is a D2 guys but he has a nasty streak and a MEAN initial punch. Will be interesting to see how this translates to the NFL

OregonDucks 02-12-2012 03:57 PM

Eddie PLeasent can lay a knockin'.

I agree with this.

A real shame he was hurt and couldn't play in the Senior Bowl - but a real mauler.
