Default Mr. Steeler what are your scouts saying now?

How about this. Why dont you go in the draft discussion thread and set up a poll that asks everyone where they think Woodley will go. I'm starting to think that you are Lamarr Woodley or something with the way you are repping him. He didn't do well at all at the Senior bowl practices (which I watched and listened to the scouts talk about) and he didn't participate in the combine (which I again watched and listen to the scouts). This has severely hurt his draft stock. In fact, if you look at some of the websites you posted, you could see this. Go to woodleys profile and look at the latest news point. It says his stock is slipping. Get over it.

Our second pick. well thats 15 + 32 into the next round... that would be Pick #47.. Woodley is a stretch to stay in the top 60.. thats practically round 3.. then he's being drafted on His season stats alone..

He's now rated as the 13th DE and a 2-star prospect. the only other notable DE in that category? Daniel Bazuin.

4.71 that he stumbled on. 38.5 inch vertical. 29 reps. So, you still say he's intimidated and won't be better than a 4th round pick?

He had a good pro day? Lets give him a crown.

Also, you do have a very good point, he has solid #'s, that means he'll be a great pro.

Negatives: Can be neutralized by double-team blocking, as he struggles to hold his ground vs. the larger blockers...Because of all the position moves, he has not had time to develop solid read/react ability and plays more on instincts...Needs more than several reps to retain plays and might struggle in a complicated system (best when freelancing)... Might have the size and experience at linebacker, but even when playing that position, he was pulled in obvious passing situations (struggles getting good depth in his drops)...Has a great motor, but will sometimes get too out of control and over-pursue...Even with his strength, he can get washed out of the play when trying to work through the trash...Lacks ideal height and bulk to play in a base defense, but has the speed to cause problems playing wide off the edge...Has good lateral range, but looks sluggish opening his hips through transition.

Compares To: DARRYL TAPP-Seattle...Some might compare him to the Colts' Dwight Freeney or Robert Mathis, but Woodley is not as fast as Freeney and has better tackling form and strength than Mathis. Like Seattle found out with Tapp later in the 2006 season, if you keep Woodley on the edge, his burst and hand strength are going to enable him to wreak havoc in the backfield. While he has experience as a linebacker, he lacks the loose hips, pass drop agility and read/react skills to play there. In a Cover-2 system out on a nine-tech rather than facing a seven-technique blocker, he could be a terror.
Hmm.

No, no, no. You said he wasn't better than a 4th round pick. So is he a 4th round pick. I said no BEFORE his Pro Day. What do you say now?

Quote:
Pros: Nice mix of size, speed, and power that has allowed him to play both LB and DE in college, at 62 270 he will be able to bull rush his way to the QB similar to Shawne Merriman and should stand strong against the run. Loves to disrupt plays in the offensive backfield.

Cons: Will need to show the athleticism and speed to be effective in coverage during his work outs or he might not be as highly sought after as an OLB in the 3-4 , may need to drop some weight in order to do so.
We can all show drat profiles. And his 4.71 forty and 4.42 short shuttle(Gaines Adams had a 4.36) shows the kind of speed to be effective n coverage.

Woodley also weighed in at 265lbs, put up 29 reps and had an amazing 38.5 vertical.


I'm skeptical, but if he's legit, he'd be worth a 2nd/3rd round look.
Huh? Make up your mind. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, ect...

?

Did I say take him in the 2nd or 3rd? I said he would be worth a look in the 2nd or 3rd... I personally don't like him to day two?

Why must you follow me around and try to call me on everything? Did your mom tighten the diaper too tight? I mean seriously, are you stalking me? You have nothing better to do than get on here, try to call me out.

Why don't you do some thinking, read some scouting reports and add something intelligent to the conversation?

All your currently and have been doing is wasting everyones time.
