PLAYERS RE-SIGNED

Jason Peters, OT[paycut]
Derek Landri, DT/DE; 1 year
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB; 5 year, 40M deal


NFL DRAFT

1.6// Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
WalterFootball.com wrote:
The NFL is always in need of franchise left tackles who can be relied on to protect quarterbacks - who are vital starters. Joeckel is a prospect who could fit that demand. Assuming he stays healthy, he will enter the NFL with three or four years of starting experience. The junior is a well-rounded blocker who has been prepared well for the next level.




2.6 // Eric Reid, S, Louisiana State
WalterFootball.com wrote:
There is a lot for NFL talent evaluators to like about Reid. He is extremely well-rounded as a run defender and in pass defense. Reid has good instincts that allow him to fly around the field and get in position to make plays. He should only be quicker as he gains a better understanding of offenses.

Reid definitely has the size and strength to be the eighth man in the box. He has good power to grab a hold of backs and put them to the ground. Overall, Reid moves well enough to avoid getting washed out of plays. His tackling technique is extremely sound. Reid covers a good amount of ground in pass defense. He takes good angles to cover up receivers running deep down the field while showing nice athleticism and body control to make plays on the ball.




3.6 // Da'Rick Rodgers, WR, Tennessee Tech
WalterFootball.com wrote:
Rogers has fabulous concentration with great hands. He makes sure to secure the ball even though he knows he's about to take a big hit. His toughness is also displayed in his physicality. Regularly you see Rogers deliver a blow to the defensive backs when he is running with the ball. Rogers finishes his runs well and is dangerous with the ball in his hands. The ability to rack up some yards after the catch is undeniable.




4.6 // Kwame Geathers, DT, Georgia
nfldraftscout.com wrote:
Georgia has two strong NGs to plug the middle and help stop the run in John Jenkins (351 pounds) and Kwame Geathers (350 pounds). That's given Georgia's linebackers room to roam and make tackles. Georgia ranks third in the SEC in run defense, allowing just 103.4 yards per game on 3.3 yards per carry.




4.28 // Traded to the Seattle Seahawks for Matt Flynn, QB.

Remixxxxxxx wrote:
We have a staff in place that knows what Matt Flynn is capable of and they believe he could be a potential long term solution at Quarterback for us. He and Foles will battle it out in training camp




4.30 // Brandon Jenkins, DE/LB, Florida State
WalterFootball.com wrote:
Jenkins is a speed-edge rusher coming around the corner who has a nice repertoire of moves to throw at offensive tackles. He is an excellent athlete and could fit well in a NFL 3-4 defense as an edge rusher. The biggest negative about Jenkins is that he could be more physical at times. It would be better if he added more muscle to hold his ground at the point of attack in the ground game.




5.6 // Rashard Hall, S, Clemson
tigernet.com wrote:
Big, rangy safety prospect who leads the team in his senior season in interceptions. Very good tackler who combines size and speed, as well as playmaking ability. Following up a junior season where he had 86 tackles and two interceptions, and really burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2009 where he had six interceptions and 55 tackles. Hasn’t exactly followed up that kind of production in terms of interceptions, but has been a very consistent performer in the Clemson secondary




6.6 // Jake Knott, O/ILB, Iowa State
nfldraftscout.com wrote:
Jake Knott, Iowa State: The play Knott made to seal Iowa State's 9-6 win at Iowa on Saturday (see video below) showed off the type of athleticism that will earn him a spot playing on Sundays. If the Big 12 defensive player of the week doesn't make it to the NFL, he should always have a job in Ames. "Jake Knott made that kind of play in a series that will have him go down in history," coach Paul Rhoads told the Ames Tribune. Knott and fellow linebacker A.J. Klein have helped the Cyclones open the season 2-0 despite the fact that they've been underdogs in both games.





6.25 // Johnny Adams, CB, Michigan State



7.15 // Patrick Lewis, C, Texas A&M
nfldraftscout.com wrote:
With 38 consecutive starts under his belt, Lewis, from Reserve, La., is the most experienced player on either side of football as the Aggies enter the Southeastern Conference under first-year Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin. Lewis was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection the past three seasons - as a guard in 2009 and 2010 and as a center in 2011.

Thats the only thing I bothered to read. But it looks like this is a decent mock.

Looks awful.


Switching to a 3-4 is dumb. We would go into next season without a single real 3-4 linebacker?

What is a "real 3-4 LB"? /Looks at Daryl Washington, Patrick Willis, Navarro Bowman, Lawrence Timmons, Sean Lee and Bruce Carter

I think Kendricks, Graham and Curry all fit well into a 3-4.

We;ve seen demeco already fail in a 3-4.


trent cole and brandon graham have no business in one.


Mychal kendricks is more of a 4-3 will than a ILB in a 3-4.



That defense would suck.

Trent Cole would be average, but Brandon Graham belongs in a 3-4 defense.

It wouldn't be worse then what we have now. It's part of a rebuilding process, your units aren't going to be very good.

We saw DeMeco coming off a significant achilles injury play average in a 3-4 defense.

And Mychal Kendricks played in a 3-4 in college and he was damn good at it.

I don't think graham and curry are good enough athletes to be good 3-4 OLBs.


Kendricks just kind of sucks in general. He has been pretty horrible this year.

Well you could not switch to a 3-4 and play to your better veterans strengths? I mean that only makes sense.

I've seen much worse from rookie LBs thrust into starting duty from day one. I wouldn't say he sucks, but that's just IMO.

I like the draft, it's similar to what I've been thinking about lately.

The coaches hired is nice, not a huge fan of switching to 3-4, but if we get a good HC/DC that wants it, I'm okay with it.

Not a huge fan of the Matt Flynn trade though. He couldn't beat out Russell Wilson and Joe Philbin didn't want him in Miami.

When Green Bay started the 3-4 switch the had a similar lineup to this; as does Indy this year, and it's work fine for both unit. I think you're just blindly hating on a 3-4 defense at this point.

The only "veterans" we have would be Trent Cole and DeMeco Ryans at this point. So it actually doesn't make sense to play to 2 out of 11 players "strengths".
