Oh those Pesky Belusian Gopher Flies! Like any good intergalactic agent – I shoot a photon missile directly at a planet. I know its not the most creative way to destroy a planet…but I love watching the way the planet explodes.
Except mid air…out of nowhere a Gopher Fly grabs the missile and takes it away before it makes contact. Light years away I see an explosion in the direction the fly went.
That must be what a pick six feels like.
Then days later…I found out that one of the Alpha Alien’s favorite vacation moons has exploded after it was hit by MY MISSILE!
And who gets blamed for that!
I don’t even know what those pests are…are they a rodent or an insect…
kinda reminds of some of the prospects I can’t place
Su’a Cravens is a fascinating prospect. In his freshmen year Cravens played Safety for USC, then USC switched him to Linebacker.
At both positions he excelled at USC.
So which is he in the NFL?
Well, I’ve seen him called the next Troy Polamalu.
And I think he fits the mold of a safety.
But not everyone agrees. In fact I’m hearing a lot of NFL scouts are projecting him at Linebacker in the NFL. Which surprises me. But what do I know – I’m not even from your miserable planet.
Could it be that Cravens fits the mold of the new NFL pass covering linebacker? Seems like this sort of Linebacker is more and more what the NFL wants out of the position in a pass happy NFL.
Cravens may not be the best coverage linebacker in the draft this year, that honor probably goes to his instate rival Myles Jack. But Cravens is one of the best available this year and one of the best I can remember.
But that is not the only thing Cravens did at USC. Cravens had over 200 tackles in 3 years at USC. He forced 4 fumbles and had over 10 sacks in the last two years while playing linebacker. So this guy is pretty versatile and makes impact plays.
But how about those 9 career interceptions NFL scouts? Don’t tell me that is not a safety I see in the field!
Well, scouts counter that by mentioning Cravens’ lack of speed. In fact he is not expected to run a very fast 40 yard dash at the combine.
But then again, if Cravens runs a fast 40, I wonder if the Cravens at safety talk picks up?
I expect Cravens to be picked int he first two rounds of the NFL draft. There is even some talk he may go in the first round, but it’s too early to know.
What I do know is that Su’a Cravens reminds me of one of the pesky Belusian Gopher Flies. That son of a bitch will pick it off and take it back for a touchdown! That’s his alien weapon of destruction!
