Combine Update with Psychic GPS

Listen up organic walking masses, it’s combine time.  Combine time is as good as it gets to an electronic device like myself who loves crunching numbers.  After two days what jumps out to this electronic device?

MasterGPS2

Day 1 lets u see some of the biggest guys in football: the Offensive Line and the Tight Ends.  Nothing says hide your McNuggets like watching a 350 pound man running the 40. This year’s offensive line class does not feature the number of athletic offensive linemen as last year.  But there are still many very good prospects.  Jake Fisher the Oregon Tackle had one of the fastest 40 times of the day.  He may have convinced some NFL Front Offices that he can play right tackle and left tackle at the pro level.  Electronic Success!

You don’t care about the 40 times of the offensive linemen though do you?  You want them to be able to juggle SUVs.  Well maybe Ereck Flowers can do that, he had the highest Bench Press score of the day with 37 reps!  Flowers is no daisy.

The sweetheart of the offensive line on Day 1 was Ali Marpet who ran the fastest 40 time among the OL. Who is Ali Marpet?  He went to a Division III school called Hobart, and while Hobart sounds like a school for Wizards in a Harry Potter novel, its actually a very old school in Geneva, New York.  Here’s a little tidbit you won’t find on NFL.com:  Hobart is an all men’s school and William Smith College is an all women’s school.  But the two schools are basically combined and referred to sometimes as Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  I hear Marpet held his own in the Senior Bowl.  I can’t find a lot of game film on this small school secret, but I did find this photo of Marpet the Wizard from the Hobart School of Magic.

Enough about the chubbies.  What about the tight ends?  Electronic Meh, its not a great class and it showed in the catching drills, although I though Nick O’Leary looked good in the catching drills.  Maxx Williams and Clive Walford, two of the top TEs in this class both had among the top 40 times and the top vertical jumps.  I think Williams could have run a faster 40 if he lost the extra “X” in his first name, which is probably why he is considered the best tight end in the class.

Day 2 included running backs, quarterbacks and wide receivers.  Add another name to the tight end class, Devin Funchess who ran with the receivers but had a slowest time in the 40 with a 4.70 time.  That time may conclude the debate as to whether he is a tight end or a wide receiver.  Who had a fast time?  Well, no one beat Chris Johnson’s time, but Philip Dorsett did post a 4.33 and Kevin White ran an amazing 4.35 but some guy from UAB, JJ Nelson had the fastest time at 4.29, which is a great way for the UAB Football Program to end.

PDorestt s1funchess-9

 Its not all about the 40, people just love that drill.  Another drill worth discussing for receivers is the vertical jump.  Both Jaelen Strong and Sammie Coates posted top 5 vertical jumps and pretty fast 40 times as well.  But some guy named Chris Conley from Georgia had the top vertical and broad jump.  He had a great day and a lot of scouts are going to be taking a closer look at him after his performance on Saturday.

JaleenStrong2Sammie CoatesThe Running Backs also ran on Saturday.  Todd Gurley is still recovering from his season ending injury, so we didn’t get to see him do anything at the combine.  No running back ran under a 4.40 but there were definitely several highly touted prospects that ran between 4.40 and 4.60 including:  Melvin Gordon, Duke Johnson, Jay Ajayi and Ameer Abdullah.  But two big backs stood out to me:  David Johnson and Karlos Williams.  Both ran well.  David Johnson is a really interesting back, he catches the ball really well.

Karlos Williams David Johnson

And then there were the QBs.  Blah Blah Blah, something about who will go first, Winston or Mariota?  They both threw the ball and ran all the drills.  Blah Blah Blah QBs…

Winston mariota

Dolphins fans don’t care about that drama.  We have our guy!

    Nice info and write Pig. I’m sorry to hear that the TE class is “meh.” It’s like the Wizard of OZ…..some day we’ll end up with our own Gronk, complete with a brain.

  3. Silly Tim says:

    Offer Clay a fair contract because there will be a market for him. Make him feel valuable and if he likes it in Miami/South Florida, he will re-sign. The guy is a cool cat, humble, has gratitude for the people who gave him a chance and helped him improve, and he always talked highly about Tannehiil and his progress despite the group that still can’t admit it. LOL

    Polian, Simms, coaches, teammates, other pundits, fans etc. – all see Tanny’s progress and upside. Then there is a faction that just can’t give him props for anything. They will all be wrong at the end of the… day. 😉

  4. D says:

    Nick Marshall looked pretty good skill wise. I really think he may turn out to be a good safety. 6’1 220 4.5 speed 37.5 inch vert. 224 broad jump. That’s pretty fucking good numbers.

  5. D says:

    Oh and Mr Tim. Trey Burton was a good UDFA pickup for the eagles. I was joking about them being smarter than us but I can promise ya he is closest thing to clay we could a had. It went with my statement before that that Clay would be hard to replace through draft this year. Last year we could have gotten Burton and this year would have a guy who closest resembles clays skills. Allbo was saying I’m not M13 who will not let up on man crushes. We didn’t rake him and I’m not asking us to trade for him or anything silly. See above I just think he and clay are almost identical.

  7. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ hide your Mcnuggets!

    One of my best friends went to Hobart, and Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers) was the keynote speaker at his graduation

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I never heard of that school

      It’s on the finger lakes

      Wtf are the finger lakes???

    • Silly Tim says:

      Did he say: wouldn’t it be nice, to be a neighbor? LOL

      • Mike E. says:

        Not sure Tim, I wasn’t there. My friend became kind of a dick when he went to college. We were friends since we were like 5 years old. He came home with a college friend and we met them in the Village in NYC, a bunch of friends that we were all very close friends, and he introduced us to his college buddy as his elementary school friends. We were best friends up until he went to college, and he basically referred to us as classmates.

  8. Silly Tim says:

    The Fingering Lake or Fingered by the Lake? Which is the better band name? LOL

  9. Silly Tim says:

    D, I’ll take your Burton and raise you a Clay. I win! LOL

    We really need to re-sign Clay, he’s a fan favorite and one of the best players on the team. To me that has a lot of value. Call me crazy.

  10. Mike E. says:

    For some reason, I was expecting Duke Johnson to be faster.

  11. Mike E. says:

    David Cobb, runs really hard, but 4.81? That will knock him down some for sure.

  12. Silly Tim says:

    Clay is 4.76. Zach ran in the 4.8s. Some guys have football speed.

    Landry is 4.5/6 which is similar to McDuffie. Same kind of player in a different era. Some guys get open and catch the ball and have return skills. They know how to track the ball and run.

    Wallace, Landry, Clay, Hartline and Miller were our bread and butter offense lead by Tanny baby. LOL

    Build on that, don’t rip it apart. Upgrade the projection with more explosiveness and toughness. Get better, don’t just change for the sake of it.

    I get being down on Wallace, but I think he’ll be back.

    • stangerx says:

      The one part I’m buying into is a wideout, perhaps more for potential than polish, to groom for a year. Maybe in the 2nd-4th. Heck, back when Joe P was there they got one almost every year regardless of apparent need.

    I really like Bill Polian, but there are really a couple of errors in that article. He’s insinuating that Odrick is a stout run stopper, and we’re looking for a pass rushing DT to put along side of him. Uh-uh, that’s wrong. Odrick is below average against the run. We need a space eater who can eat up blocks. The other error, of course as you know, is Philbin. lol

  26. naplesfan2010 says:

    I really like Stephone Anthony as a fast cover MLB who really brings the wood when he hits. I believe he will be a better pro than he was in college, although he certainly did fine there.

    So my neighbor’s snow plower got stuck in her driveway. I spent nearly an hour helping him shovel his truck out. You would think he would offer to plow my driveway as a thank you. Another hour plus later I am just getting done with snowblowing shoveling out.

    • Rockphin says:

      I hate that shit! People are so self centered. I was moving one week end on a Sunday And my buddy was renovating his patio on a Saturday Before. He wanted to put down tile on his patio and chip up all the Chattahoochee So I spent 5 hours on a chipping hammer jacking up all his Chattahoochee And the next day he told me he was too sore to help me move.

      • Ken says:

        Yep. I hate that stuff. I did it to help my neighbor who is very nice but the snow plower who is her brother in law was a dick.

      • Rockphin says:

        I DID ALL THE BACK BREAKING LABOR!! the following year he moved and ask me to help. I told him sorry I’ve got something to do that weekend I don’t know what it is yet but it’s better than helping you move….
        His wife looked at me and looked at him and laughed and said good for you Martin.( his wife had come to help me move the year before, but he didn’t)

  34. getterdone says:

    Naples, I’m also high on Stephone Anthony as a MLB for us, but what did he run in the 40? As a cover LB, I’m a lil afraid of his speed….but like you said, hopefully he’ll play quick @ football speed once in the NFL.

  35. Rockphin says:

    I know that you all know this already. Zach Thomas was not the biggest strongest fastest Linebacker we have had. He was supposedly too small and too slow. But the guy had a knack for diagnosing a play and being in the right spot at the right time. He was great because he would anticipate And be moving THE RIGHT Direction At the snap of the ball And he was relentless. The hardest part of taking somebody in the draft is finding that guy, Who has the will to be great, In spite of his physical limitations. I hope we continue to get guys like Landry Who have it.

  36. Ken says:

    Rock:
    I used to help my older brother move a few times years ago. I hated that. He would do shit it was basically my other brother and I doing all the work. I remember once while my other brother and I were moving a heavy sofa and we scraped a little bit of the wall and he was going all apeshit on us. My other brother and I were like F this we are done. and stopped helping. He then got a lot nicer to us;

    Ken, Rock

    I can totally relate to you guys with your “selfish” people stories. I have an older colleague I work with that we socialize with occasionally, usually when all of my coworkers get together. One fall (like 4 years ago), he asked me if I could help him take all of his outside furniture inside, he has an attic in his garage, which is up this really narrow staircase. He had all kinds of tables chairs, and what nots that myself and wife brought all the way around his house, and then dragged up that narrow staircase to his attic. When were done, he asked if we wouldn’t mind helping his neighbor, and they had a shit-ton of stuff to do. I had left my sweatshirt at my friends house, so i asked him if he could bring it by to my house. He said, “Well, I’m not going to be around your are anytime soon, can’t you come and pick it up?” I said can you at least bring it to the Freehold store (which is 5 minutes from his house), he said he’s not going to be passing it, so no.

    I said OK Bob, now I’m fucking pissed man. I said you bring that fucking sweatshirt to my fucking house tomorrow you selfish prick, or don’t ever fucking ask me to do another thing for you, EVER!!!!!. He brought the sweatshirt over the next day.

    • Silly Tim says:

      Unfortunately I don’t think people like that even realize their level of douche bag.

      • Mike E. says:

        He kinda does. He likes to push the envelope to see what he could get away with. He just pulled a stunt a few weeks ago. Long story short, his friend for like 40 years retired from our company a few weeks ago, and my company doesn’t do squat for our employees, so one of of my coworkers asked Bob if he was doing anything for Larry’s retirement. He kinda wavered, because he didn’t really want to, but then he felt guilty, so he decided to do it. He originally decided we’d go to this Mexican chain restaurant Escondidos for drinks, but then everyone said we should make it dinner, and he relented. Our boss came late, and when the checks came (we were all splitting apps, which BTW, he decided what HE wanted and ordered them), but would get separate checks for dinner and drinks. He and his wife were drinking Johnny Walker Black at about $15 per drink, and they had about 6 or 7, and when my boss came, he switched his check with his, kind of jokingly, but also strategically, and he ended up paying like a $30 check, while my boss spent about $100, and everyone else spent between $60-120$. My coworker Pat (female – not androgynous) blasted Bob, because she paid like $120, and how dare he pull that shit! He ended giving everyone else between $10-$40 per couple back after that. He’s especially selfish and douchey when it comes to money.

      • steveccnv says:

        There’s always one in the crowd Mike. At a work Christmas party several yrs ago the lady collecting the money had about $50 extra dollars and kept it for herself, which isn’t uncommon for her. She’s actually a camping friend of my moms. We went on the camping trip a couple of times for 4th of July. There were 4 families involved so each family would get food for a certain meal, this lady would bring her grown up kids and their friends, then bring food for breakfast.

  44. Mike E. says:

    How about Vic Beasley? Tearin’ up the combine! Thing is, he’s more of a DE prospect, pass rusher and not sure he’d be good as a 4-3 OLB.

    • Silly Tim says:

      I didn’t realize he’s 6-3 245. He has 3-4 OLB written all over him. He’s not big enough to be a DE and his skill set is more of a rush guy than 4-3 play in space OLB.

  45. Silly Tim says:

    I don’t think the top LBs are clear cut 1st rounders. They’re all on the small side and I don’t see MLB in any of them except for McKinney who I don’t think is good in coverage. I’d go in another direction at #14.

    I’m thinking if we don’t have a shot at one of the top big WRs, we go OL or DT at #14.

    Only if we add significant cap space, you know who could step right in and help at ILB or OLB, David Harris (Jets). That dude is a good LB and he can play anywhere.

  49. Silly Tim says:

    Mike E, when you all go out to dinner, you order what you want and everyone splits the bill. That’s the easiest way even if a few people order crazy shit. The idea is to order what you want and don’t look back, not nitpick well I only had a salad and two drinks. Fuck you! LOL

    • Mike E. says:

      Well, that’s what most of us said, but it couldn’t have worked that way, because some people just came for a short time, some people didn’t eat, and that fuckface Bob would have probably drank 2 bottles of JWB knowing we were going to split everything. lol

  50. Silly Tim says:

    Mike E, you enjoying the hint of spring weather today in the 40s? I was out in just a sweatshirt. It really helped melt a lot of the crap from yesterday. Can’t believe it will be 15-20 tomorrow. Ugh!!!

    • Mike E. says:

      I haven’t stepped outside yet. I think my DirecTV dish froze, but it thawed out this morning. We had no TV last night. I hope it melts the snow in my driveway, but I doubt it.

      • Silly Tim says:

        We had to get the main layer off and now it’s totally clear and just wet with runoff. It being sunny and mid 40s was the key.

  51. The Flying Pig says:

    Kendrick’s and Jordan Hicks ran pretty good 40 times
    McKinney wasn’t bad either at 4.69

    Perryman was over 4.8
    Which is good as far as I know
    I hope his size and lack of speed drop him to mid 2nd where we can snag him

  52. Brian in NY says:

    Did I miss anything over the past week?

  53. Mike E. says:

    Paul Dawson running a 4.9 is a downer. Not good. That will drop him, but I was watching him, he looks slow in the drills.

    • Mike E. says:

      They do say he has great instincts though, and sometimes, that’s more important than 2-3 tenths of a second in the 40

  54. finfanrob says:

    tim giving up pickles is about as likely as mike e giving up married men

  55. finfanrob says:

    Perryman was over 4.8
    Which is good as far as I know
    I hope his size and lack of speed drop him to mid 2nd where we can snag him

    lol that is so funny. basically you are saying ‘i hope he sucks enough so we can draft him’

  56. rgs322 says:

    After the first 3 days, I’m even more certain about drafting DL/OL early.

    • Silly Tim says:

      Yep! If there isn’t one of those top big playmaking WRs available, I see DL/OL too. DL is deeper than originally thought. There are some good stout DL in the draft 1st round. They always go early too, and OTs.

  57. Silly Tim says:

    Piggy, I wouldn’t take Perryman in the 1st is all I meant. It doesn’t mean he won’t a good LB in the NFL. Zach Thomas went 5th round because he was 5-11 225 4.8+. You get good players on football skills later. You don’t take questions at #14.

  58. finfanrob says:

    You don’t take questions at #14.

    nope, you trade up and take them at #3

    • Silly Tim says:

      Physically Jordan is elite in all phases. You can’t keep ignoring his shoulder injury and transgressions.

      If he doesn’t become an impact player in 2015 the bust flag will be at full mast.

  59. finfanrob says:

    tim

    just joking around. at the time every thought jordan was going to have brady for lunch and it was a great move. that is why i dont get into the draft like everyone else. talk about false hopes

    • Silly Tim says:

      Well, we all knew he had shoulder surgery and he would be questionable. Why Ireland thought he would help us now I have no idea, and I wasn’t against Jordan’s talent and upside. But his 3rd year is the moment for him. No more development. Time to make a bigger impact.

      I’m tired of the coaches being blamed for his setbacks. It’s time for Jordan to be who he and others think he can be. It’s not about position. Right, 6-6 250+ should never be an edge guy, he should run around in space and chase smaller, quicker dudes. I don’t get it but we’ll see.

  60. finfanrob says:

    tim

    in my mind it is simple, it is a result of lack of talent. from the front office down to the coaching staff and players. it isnt one thing it is a combination of all three

      It’s about talent. We have some really good and some decent players. Who’s great?

      Some here want to trade down, I’d rather trade up and land specific talents you have a plan for. We have to make the playoffs this year. You can’t lose your last two at 8-6 in 2013 and then lose the last 3 of 4 at 7-5 in 2014. That’s not acceptable.

      That’s what Philbin has to overcome. How do I win late in the year? He can get them in the hunt, can he finish?

    It’s about talent

    that is what i just said, but it about talent in coaching and front office too. not just on the field.

    how well did the talents of one of the toughest/best running backs in the league help out seattle.

  62. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I agree. I think we go either d-line or o-line with the 1st pick. probably d-line

    Wyo

    I find every draft I do, even if I really like it, feels like I needed to get a better player at either OT, DT, CB, or LB. I think it’s very hard to satisfy all of those things with one pick in each RD. Actually, it’s probably impossible.

    Tim/ffr,
    Good conversation. As has been mentioned many times. The drafting of players is simply a crapshoot….pretty much for everyone….professionals and fanatics. Professionals have more info and such, but they still miss a lot. I think some guys around here actually have a good eye for certain things too. But, it’s still a lot of luck because you simply can’t plan for everything that happens AFTER you draft them.

    Jordan has elite physical talent. Can the coaches…and Jordan….figure out how to get the most out of it?

  67. wyoming85 says:

    Randy
    so what is your take on the DT’s so far?
    Any worth getting excited about?

  68. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Wyo – So true man, so true!

  69. Mike E. says:

    Steve

    I’m sure just about everyone knows someone just like that. It’s like their purpose is to get over on other people.

  70. Mike E. says:

    Stephone Anthony looks like a guy who would be a good fit for us, especially if we can’t get Perryman or Kendricks, or maybe even better that those guys. He’s got the size and speed, and he’s a good tackler

    • The Flying Pig says:

      He’s a good tackler

      Not so good in coverage

      But none of the prospects other than Kendrick’s are really good in coverage

  71. Mike E. says:

    Your score is: 6040 (GRADE: A)

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 14: Kevin White, WR, West Virginia (A)
    Round 2 Pick 15: Cameron Erving, OT/OG, Florida State (A-)
    Round 3 Pick 14: Gabe Wright, DT, Auburn (A)
    Round 4 Pick 15: Durrell Eskridge, FS/SS, Syracuse (B+)
    Round 5 Pick 14: Charles Gaines, CB, Louisville (A-)
    Round 6 Pick 15: Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas (A)
    Round 7 Pick 15: Karlos Williams, RB, Florida State (A)

  72. D says:

    Piggy, Kendricks isn’t that good in coverage either. Dawson has been the best I have seen on video coverage wise and he is about 60/40 good to not so good. McKinney vhas been said to be bad at it but he isn’t too far off where I feel Dawson is and has better size to match up with TEs
