Here he is against Texas A&Mhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGBBKibXTrs
Against 1st round talent and they still double him up.
SaintHawk29 I don’t see how "He really struggles at setting the edge on outside running plays, and can get absolutely destroyed in the power run game."
Constantly doubled and still doesn't lose much ground and even still gets pressure and penetration with regularity, he most certainly could use some sealing skills and gap integrity. Let me rephrase that yes he gets beat due to being undisiplined, No he doesn't get owned in power running.
PeHawk read where I saw "Raw as Hell". I also don't see beast in there either. He definitely has a lot to learn about leverage his footwork could use coaching, like I said he is raw. I will however point out he only has been playing football for 3 years. I do agree that he is not a tenacious pursuer and doesn't deliver devastating hits. Not saying spend a 1st rounder on him in fact I've stated there are only 4 players worth 1st round think 2009 draft

This class is so weak IMO we may see a guard go in the top 5. Now JS/PC will most likely find 5 1st round draft choices in this draft and we will all scratch our heads again going how in the hell do they find these guys. Barkley and Smith might be the only QB's to go in the first round and I would not take smith as a QB, I wouldn't have taken Cam Newton either and that seems to be a fairly good pick so shows what I know. We might not see a RB go until late in the second. I think this is a D heavy draft with tons of value and depth but nearly no superstars kinda like 2009, where of the 12 Probowlers in the draft 5 are lineman, 2 are LB, 3 WR, 1 RB, 1 SS
I would say maybe 2 remotely have a shot at the hall. Of the first 3 rounds 17 are contributing starters. anyway I think this will be a draft like that. The NFL will build Hype and a lot of teams will end up with Arron Curry.
So since I dont think there are many worth it he is a good as any unless hopkins is available. I am just saying there is a ton to work with there and his physical attributes make him worth a pick to me. I'll say it again if he can consistently beat double and triple teams he can beat a tackle or a guard.
