Simple premise..........
Pick a prospect and post everything you can find on them.

This is the time of year so many of us are on this particular site for.

Draft season.

We have a ton of mocks* and I was thinking a thread like this would go perfect with them and the draft talk thread.

A lot of us are here to talk the draft and find out about possible future Packers. What better way to learn about a prospect than to have as much information as possible about them?

I think the people here could make this an amazing reference point for the other people here who want as much information as possible on prospects to help form opinions.

If it takes off I'd update the OP with an alphabetical list of the prospects and where they are located in the thread for easy "navigation".

*I'd love for everyone who does a mock to do this for one prospect in their mock. It would make for a huge "database" and make each mocker find at least one prospect that hasn't been in other mocks.

Let's make this happen.

Right now, my #1 draft crush is Jordan Matthews.

I'm not going to bother posting youtube vids though.

It's more to the point that I generally don't find youtube videos at all useful. They generally don't put the bad plays in there.

HaHa Clinton-Dix - Free Safety - Alabama - 12-21-1992

Right now my #1 safety is Clinton-Dix but he is not what he was hyped to be. He isn't the next Nick Collins. Clinton-Dix is solid but I don't see the real eye popping special plays. At times he seems to lack physicality, will miss the occasional tackle in space, doesn't have great tackling form and sometimes it looks like he takes a play or two off.

The things I did like, I like his man coverage skills the best of the safeties I have watched so far. He can turn and locate the ball in man coverage and has the ability to make a play on the ball in man coverage/when back is turned to the ball. He can play the deep half and can read the QB's eyes. He has shown the ability to tackle in space, although he has also missed tackles and taken poor angles. Seems smart and well coached. He also does flash some physicality at times but not real often.

All said and done, I'm not sure HaHa is one of the best 21 players in this draft, but if he is sitting there at 21 for Green Bay I am totally fine with us "reaching" for a need and taking HaHa. I think he will be a very nice safety for a number of years.

Quote:
STRENGTHS: Solidly-built frame with above average toughness and body strength. Good build-up speed with smooth quickness and body control. Strong cuts and controlled momentum down the field - very good catch-and-go receiver. Good depth and lean in his routes and won't slow down in his breaks - good patience and plays off defenders to create some room to work.
Above average hands-catcher with quick reflexes and ball skills to pluck fastballs away from his body. Strong hands and very good in contested situations - uses his body and arms to out-muscle defenders. Excellent hand-eye coordination. Nice job catching the ball in stride with a little wiggle after the catch - deceiving moves, balance and toughness and not an easy guy to tackle. Fearless and resilient pass-catcher over the middle and in traffic - very determined.

Always looking for someone to block. Led LSU in catches and receiving scores the past two seasons. Good special teams coverage experience.

WEAKNESSES: Good size and speed, but limited in both areas. Only average height and length for the position. Takes a few moments to get up to his top-end speed and can be slowed in his routes by physical defenders - will struggle at times vs. press. Not naturally explosive and takes a few moments to gear down - doesn't show the burst to consistently separate with his quickness.

Will get his feet tied up at times in his patterns and has room to tighten his footwork. Strong hands, but he'll have his share of focus drops.

COMPARES TO: Eric Decker, Denver Broncos - Landry is more reliable with his hands and isn't quite as tall, but he projects similar to Decker with their movements, body control and toughness after the catch.

--Dane Brugler (1/8/14)


Looks to me to have a high football IQ.

Seems very comfortable in the slot finding the soft spots in the zone with ease. Would be Rodgers best friend if he gets open for those short read that frequently.

If you watch the youtube video above, check out what he does at 3:28 in, I think that is just a brainy move and you really don't see many guys doing something like that. Very very impressed by that.

He is physical. Boxes out well for position when catchings, runs very hard after the catch, not as shifty as some of our guys breaking tackles, but likes lowering his shoulder. Blocks well both in line and on the edge. Lots of plays where he motions in as a wing back and helps block the edge.

Beautiful hands, has several highlight catches in his career. Draft scout has him listed at 4.49.

That's why you watch game cuts and not highlight videos. Confused

Jordan Zumwalt | ILB/SLB | UCLA

Strengths: Decent athlete playing linebacker with a physical presence. Even in Senior Bowl practices the coaches had to ask him to tone it down a bit. He is quick getting in his drop in short zone coverage and actually excels covering the short field. He sniffs out the run quickly and has no wasted motion when reacting.
Weaknesses: While Zumwalt brings that physical presence to anyone's defense, he does throw his hat around too much. He will be penalized in the NFL quite often if he keeps it up(not to mention the fines). He also lacks awareness in coverage when in deeper coverage and needs to work on route anticipation. When I watched him I didn't see him play much man coverage down the field so the question remains if he can cover TE's.

@ the Senior Bowl...

Mon: Had several nice plays throughout the day. Stomped on a tight end during blocking drills then showed a lot of discipline throughout the rest of the day.
Tues: Had a “WOW” sort of day. Dominant during blitz drills, showed a lot of skill in pursuit and held his own in coverage. Just a lot to like about his game.
Wed: Not as effective as yesterday yet played well in all areas. Leaves Senior Bowl practice as a winner.


Has two games on draftbreakdown.

Aaron Donald

Born: May 23, 1991 (age 22)
Height: 6' 0" (1.83 m)
Weight: 284 lbs (129 kg)
Current team: Pittsburgh Panthers football (#97 / Defensive lineman)



Put me on the Aaron Donald man-crush bandwagon. I would LOVE to grab him in the second, but there isnt a chance he lasts. If we sign a FA Safety, miss out on Mack and Mosley (which we will) I would seriously consider taking him at 21. He is like a Mike Daniels clone with more explosiveness. Size is the only thing thats keeping him out of the top 10 IMO. Been watching his tapes over and over again....I WANT HIM!


Senior Bowl
Quote:
Donald, a smallish defensive tackle who swept every major defensive honor in college football this past season, authored a Fisher-like moment in the North practice when Donald pancaked Baylor guard Cyril Richardson, a man five inches taller and 50 pounds heavier than Donald.


Quote:
The top defensive lineman of the day was Aaron Donald (DL Pittsburgh), who can probably play either 3-Tech in a 4-3 defense or 5-Tech in a 3-4 defense at the next level. At times, he was unstoppable against both single- and double-teams.
