Here's my Jeremiah Attaochu scouting report.

Quote:
Jeremiah Attaochu [OLB/DE; Georgia Tech]

Height:
Weight:
Forty:
NFL Comparison: Von Miller [OLB; Denver Broncos]
Games Scouted: Virginia Tech, Georgia

Strengths: At the Senior Bowl, Attaochu weighed in at 6'3", 252 with nearly 33" long arms which is the near ideal size for a 34 OLB. While he might be able to add more weight to his frame to put his hand on the ground, he's already got the size you'd like for out of a stand up pass rusher. He's got a terrific first step, and strong snap anticipation. Explodes out of his stance. Strong hand useage and does a good job keeping the offensive lineman from putting his hand on his body. Jeremiah does a good job anticipating snap counts, and fires out of his stance. Has experience from the two point snap as well as the three point snap but he's shown a real keen ability out of the two point snap. Does a good job setting up his speed rush by coming back inside, but not particularly strong using his hands doing so. The ability (and more importantly willingness) to do both of these doesn't allow the offensive tackle to line up and be comfortable at any point. He does a great job following the play and does a good job chasing down the ball carrier. Because Attaochu played as 43 OLB, he's got the heads up on most converted pass rushers where he's shown a comfort dropping into zone coverage. Not great in man coverage, but not a liability either.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have a wide arrange of pass rush moves, often relies too much on his speed rush. Needs to work with good coaching to find himself a counter move or two. Could stand to get stronger, and as a result his bull rush isn't nearly as effective as you'd like to see. While he does a good job of keeping his pad level, he's very inconsistent with dipping his shoulder when going by a blocker. Doesn't have great balance, but not a liability either. Could stand to improve on it. While he's improved in his taking on blockers and then shedding them, he needs to continue to get stronger and that should help him shed blockers. Because of his speed and snap count anticipation, he can be a bit prone to overrunning the ball carrier and put him out of position. Not a real great run defender at this point, but he's made enough strides where it gives you enough imagination what he could be with a year or two in the weight room.

Summary: Jeremiah Attaochu hasn't gotten the recognition he deserves, but after his strong start to the Senior Bowl and pending his results at the combine he could easily vault himself into top 20 consideration. Attaochu relies mostly on his speed pass rush, and as a result he's going to get docked because of it because he doesn't have a ton of array in pass rush moves. He's a bit raw, and many will compare him to Bruce Irvin coming out of college but I have a bit higher hopes for Attaochu and think he could be one of the best stand up pass rushers. Unlike most pass rushers converting to a 34 outside linebacker, he's got experience dropping back into coverage from his experience. Jeremiah Attaochu had a big win at the Senior Bowl already by measuring in at 6'3", 252 so he's already starting to see his stock going in the right direction. And should he test as well as I project him to at the combine, he'll be right into the top 20 mix.


I'd LOVE to have him in Green Bay.

FS JONATHAN DOWLING, WESTERN KENTUCKY

6’3” – 198 lbs. – 4.50e

he has been clocked as fast as 4.42 seconds in the 40

STATISTICAL PROFILE:

2010: University of Florida
2011: Redshirt (Transfer to Western Kentucky)
2012: 68 – 2.5 – 0.0, 2 FF, 7 PD, 6 INT (1 TD), 1 BK
2013: 67 – 1.0 – 0.0, 1 QBH, 6 FF, 7 PD, 3 INT

OVERVIEW:

Spent one year at Florida, but was dismissed for reportedly clashing with the coaching staff and skipping classes. Sat out the 2011 season due to transfer rules, then was named an All-Sun-Belt First Team selection in 2012 after starting eleven games. Also made the first team in 2013, starting twelve games.

POSITIVES:

• Possesses outstanding height and length for a pro safety, with adequate weight as well.
• Earned first-team all-conference honors in both of his seasons with the Hilltoppers.
• Athleticism allows him to cover impressive range in zone, cover opposing slot receivers.
• Has fluid hips, allowing him to remain with receivers when deployed in man coverage.
• Capable of making big hits on unsuspecting receivers, fairly aggressive in this regard.
• Exhibits soft hands to make interceptions, generally times his plays on the ball well.
• Managed to force eight fumbles over the past two seasons, including six times in 2013.
• Confident player who plays with a swagger, seems to relish assuming an enforcer role.
• Also did some work on special-teams coverage units, plus blocked a kick back in 2012.

NEGATIVES:

• Dismissal from Florida in 2010 is a major red flag which teams must closely investigate.
• Must learn to wrap ballcarriers rather than attempting to go low, leading with shoulder.
• Takes some sharp pursuit angles, causing him to end up out of position to make a stop.
• Poor tackling technique/parlous angles makes him unreliable as a last line of defense.
• Lack of ideal strength/bulk allows opponents to shrug off some of the hits he attempts.
• Hasn’t done much work in the box; thin build will likely prevent him from playing there.

SUMMARY:

Dowling opted to forego his senior season after two productive campaigns at Western Kentucky in which he demonstrated a knack for forcing turnovers, whether by making interceptions or stripping ballcarriers. His rare height and length, combined with solid speed and fluid hips, make him an interesting gamble as a developmental center-fielder, although at this point his disregard for tackling technique and his aggressive angles in pursuit are significant flaws given that free safeties are considered a team’s last line of defense. Previous issues at Florida leading to his dismissal from the team, which reportedly included clashes with position coach Chuck Heater and poor attendance in school, mean teams will have to conduct considerable research into his character, particularly his ability to handle hard coaching, something which Dowling identified as a point of contention between himself and Heater. The most deleterious flaws in Dowling’s game can be eliminated, but whether or not he will respond well to instruction remains to be seen.

Scouting Report

http://withthefirstpick.com/2013/12/03/2014-nfl-draft-scouting-report-deone-bucannon-fs-washington-state/

Deone Bucannon is my man crush in this years draft. He is listed as a SS but I believe he can play FS in the NFL as well. I think he is exactly what we need out of our safeties. He is physical, and not shy of contact (unlike MD Jennings), has soft hands, good cover skills, and he forces turnovers. He can also play on special teams. The only knock on him that I have is he is inconsistent with his tackling, he isn't terrible but he can improve in this area. With improved tackling technique to go long with his coverage skills I think Bucannon can become the back end presence we have been missing since Nick Collins was forced from the game.


Sorry, dude. Already got dibs on him(see previous page). Nice to know I'm not the only one crushing on him...

I might be going out on a limb here...but Deone Bucannon kinda reminds me of Eric Berry(with not-so-elite ballskills). Shocked

S/CB Antone Exum - Virginia Tech
6'1 220
4.5 40
4th-5th round projection.
Had some ankle and knee injuries or could have been day 2 pick.
Looked like a bigger more physical Nick Collins before the injury.

Walters:

Antone Exum, CB/S, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-1. Weight: 224.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2013): 3-4.

12/21/13: Exum has played in just two games this season. He only started playing again late in 2013 and recorded three tackles. An ankle injury caused him to miss multiple games late in the year.

8/17/13: Exum has split time at corner and safety during his collegiate career. He had a strong 2012 season playing cornerback and was a Second-Team All-ACC selection. Exum led Virginia Tech with five interceptions while also recording 16 passes broken up, two forced fumbles and 48 tackles. He played safety for the Hokies the year before and recorded 89 tackles with 10 passes batted, one interception and two forced fumbles.

After an ACL tear this year, Exum is expected to miss some time in the early portion of the season. Still, Virginia Tech and Exum are hopeful that he will play in 2013. Exum is a versatile player who could be used as hybrid safety/corner in the NFL.

Personal: Has already graduated with a degree in finance. Son of Barbara and Antone Exum, Sr.
