What's with these Ivy League QB fetishes that you have? My taste is soured by the only Ivy League QB I know... Jason Garrett...

My dad was a Dartmouth guy, my grandfather and grandmother both went to Harvard. I went to school in the Boston area, and have a bunch of friends at Hahvahd. They're also one of the only teams I get to see play live each year.

The only other Ivy League QB I know (other than Garrett and Fitzpatrick) who has made a name for himself in the NFL is Jay Fiedler, who had moderate success for a couple of seasons. And Garrett wasn't terrible as a backup(in fact, I think he was pretty effective, although he never was going to be a starter...

On another note, I just wanted to gloat that a graduate of tiny Middlebury College, total enrollment 2200, a DIII program (where I go) is now the Ravens kickoff specialist and distance kicker. I mention this because he is the only Midd grad playing pro sports right now and I feel the need to gloat.

With all those connections you should have made something useful of yourself and went to school there.

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.

Might be a homer pick, but for me I am hyping Jasper Brinkley





He arrived from a JUCO in 2006 for USC and immediately solidified his starting spot at MLB for the next three years. His first year he led the team in tackles with 107, more than twice as many as the next defender on the list. Also 79% of those tackles were solo (84 solos). Was made a consensus first team All-Conference selection (a great honor in the SEC).

In 2007 he dominated the first few games before being sidelined for the rest of the year by a knee injury sustained playing against LSU.

Returned in 2008 and despite being held out of plays on third downs, still had 65 tackles, 42 of which were solos. Was one of the best run defenders I've seen and although he wasn't a third down player this year, he definitely can still be in the future now that is knee is completely healed.

Now he is back in shape after the injury, going from 265 lbs during the season this year, to 252 lbs for the combine and regaining his speed posting a 4.72 40, better than both Rey Maualuga and James Laurinaitis, who are also considered to be 3 down LB's.

He fits great in the 3-4 as an ILB with his tremendous size and willingness to take on OL and punish ballcarriers.

Here he drives Tim Tebow back, not an easy feat:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bipvpIfNgJo

And here he lays the wood on Micheal Henig of MSU and makes the great solo open field tackle:

Sorry, I don't know how to embed youtube videos or I would

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.

Click to listen to music while you read this! :)

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... ;)

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.

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

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.

I was just saying the leadership aspect wouldn't really play apart in dallas aside from getting him drafted.

I don't see him as someone who will unseat Sensabaugh....and if thats the case I don't wanna waste a 2nd on him...if Sensabaugh needs to be upgraded the 2010 draft class should be the best one in recent memory....I'd rather wait and play with what we have at safety. Use a 4th round pick on a special teams safety that you think has the potential to start and let them battle it out.

I didnt say he would unseat Sensabaugh this year. But you could gradually ease him in there. Get the training wheels off and by year 2, he's ready to take over. Depth is a major issue too...you have a much better chance at hitting with a 2nd rounder than a 4th rounder. We could use quality safety depth, and a guy like Rashad would be great. He is one of those amazingly hard workers who has turned himself into a very good player...and there is a greal deal of potential there.

We all know we can go in a number of directions...just throwing it out there. Safety in round 2 is still a very good possibility.

I agree with the possibility that S is still an option. Never know how the board is gonna shake out. Sensy definitely hasn't resolved any answers yet.

If I'm looking for someone to ease into the position Johnson isn't my guy. Untapped potential I don't see it...he is what he is imo. I'm sure he is a hard worker...but that only gets you so far in the NFL. I'd rather take someone with a bit more upside and that needs a little more tooling.

Thus I like to wait into the 4th and pick up a Bruton/Pegues/McBath...these guys all have more upside and could turn out to be better NFL players than Johnson.
