A few DE/EDGE/LB's for day 2 & 3 of the draft.

  • I'm looking at day 2/3 of the draft DE/EDGE/LB prospects, I see that DE-Anthony Nelson (Iowa) is now
    entering the draft and he's one that I haven't heard much talk about, perhaps because he was a junior.
    He seems to be regarded as a mid-round type pick, likely late round 3 thru late round 4 area. I haven't
    seen any film yet but he has a couple of factors going for him, Size & length & some "fairly" good stats.

    ---DE-Anthony Nelson, Iowa, 6-7/271 (exact size, length & speed TBD at combine)
    2018: 13-games, 45-tkls, 23-solo, 13.5-TFL's, 9.5-Sacks, 1-PBU, 6-QBH,
    2017: 13-games, 41-tkls, 21-solo, 9.5-TFL,7.5-sacks, 4-PBU, 7-QBH, 2-FF, 1-BK
    2015: 13-games, 33-tkls, 15-solo, 8.0-TFL, 6.0-sacks, 1-PBU, 3-QBH, 2-FF
    Career: 39-games, 119-tkls, 69-solo, 31-TFL's, 23-sacks, 6-PBU, 16-QBH, 4-FF, 1-BK

    Another EDGE type I've just started digging into, he would seem to have LEO size, but his speed and agility #'s will be better known after the combine, has some pretty impressive stats but I need further study.

    ---DE-Ben Banogu, TCU, 6-4/249
    2018: 13-games, 57-tkls, 43-solo, 18.0-TFL, 8.5-Sacks, 8-QBH, 2-FF, 1-FR (for TD)
    2017: 14-games, 49-tkls, 29-solo, 16.5-TFL, 8.5-sacks, 1-PBU, 7-QBH, 3-FF
    2016: 13-games, 45-tkls, 25-solo, 14.5-TFL, 5.0-sacks, 2-PBU, 5-QBH, 2-FF
    Career: 40-games, 151-tkls, 97-solo, 49-TFL, 22-sacks, 11-PBU, 14-QBH, 7-FF, 1-FR (for TD)

    Some "SMALLER" DE/LB/EDGE from smaller (FBS) schools that have excellent 2018 stats, positions to be determined, likely LB, death backer or pass rush specialists - Probable later round/UDFA picks. I'm not sure why these guys don't get a little more ink, they are small school guys and undersized, I guess.

    This first guy put up some "amazing" #'s, small school or not, why isn't he ever mentioned? The Rodney Dangerfield of this pre-season, so far. What else can this kid do to get noticed more?

    ---DE/OLB-Sutton Smith, No. Illinois, 6-1/237 (Note: Played DE, will surely move to LB/rover in NFL.)
    2018: 14-games, 61-tkls, 43-solo, 26.5-TFL, 15.0-Sacks, 1-PBU, 9-QBH, 4-FF, 1-FR (for 83-yd TD), 2-BK
    Also had 2 punt returns for 51-yds & 1-TD. (Unusual, speaks to athletic abilities, shiftyness & versatility?)
    ****--------> #1 in FBS in TFL's, & tied for #1 in FBS in Sacks,
    2017: 13-games, 63-tkls, 43-solo, 29.5-TFL, 14.0-sacks, 3-PBU, 8-QBH, 3-FF, 2-FR (for 2-TD's)
    ****-------->#1 in FBS in TFL's, & #3 in FBS in sacks.
    2016: 12-games (as backup) 15-tkls, 6-solo, 2-TFL, 1-sack, 3-QBH
    Career: 39-games, 139-tkls, 92-solo, 58-TFL's, 30-sacks, 4-PBU, 20-QBH, 7-FF, 3-FR (for 3 TD's), 2-BK

    ---DE/OLB-Nate Harvey, E. Carolina, 6-1/225,
    2018: 12-games, 63-tkls, 42-solo, 25.5-TFL's, 14.5-Sacks, 4-QBH, 2-FF
    .....#2 in FBS in TFL's. #3 in FBS in Sacks, Note: Played DE, will surely have to move to LB in NFL.
    speed & agility =?

    ---OLB-E. J. EJiya, N. Texas, 6-3/231 (Might be interesting for Seahawks if he has some speed.)
    2018: 13-games, 121-tkls, 60-solo, 25.0-TFL's, 9.0-Sacks, 11-QBH, 1-FF, 1-BK
    .....#3 in FBS in TFL's. Stats show that he is a busy guy & makes plays. speed & agility =??

    ---OLB/SS-Chase Hansen, Utah, 6-3/230, May have potential as a LB - or maybe back to SS ala: Kam?
    2018: 13-games, 114-tkls, 70-solo, 22.0-TFL, 5,0-Sacks, 4-PBU, 1-QBH, 2-INT (1 for TD)
    .....#5 in FBS in TFL's. Has played SS & rover, should also be good in pass coverage, speed & agility =???

    I LOVE Chase Hansen from Utah. Looks to have really good instincts and takes nice angles. His speed looks solid and he is always around the ball...the guy can tackle.

  • What about Isaiah Buggs from Ala. Had 10 sacks and is strong enough to play inside.

    Is 6'5" and 290 to big for you?

    No. But 30" arms isn't going to cut it. Pete covets long arms at DL.

    Not going to happen.

    EDIT:

    Haven't see him listed. But keep tabs on LJ Collier (5T TCU). Late bloomer that has grown from 205 lb DE to 275 lb DE. Team mate of Ben Banogu already listed. Collier has a very Michael Bennett vibe to me as an inside/outside speed player.

  • A projected late round/UDFA SLEEPER Mike-LB from Central Michigan (MAC) that may be of some interest to the Seahawks = LB-Malik Fountain, 6-2/230, est. 4.77/40. His small school stats are pretty impressive. He averaged 12.92 tackles per game last year with 153 total tackles (among the FBS leaders). Only question is what will he time in the 40? His flaws all seem to be fairly coachable aspects of technique. A fast 10-yd. split & a faster 40 time are hopefully anticipated at his pro-day. IF, he balls out in workout performances, he could be a true sleeper. See scouting report: https://www.nfldraftdiamonds.com/2018/1 ... -michigan/

  • 230 is way too light to be a Leo.

    Pete is looking for a 250 pounder or more with explosive speed and length of 34 inches
