My hope with this post is to get a few unique opinions on who prospects you are particularly high on or particularly dislike. Just one request – no first round prospects…. I’ve heard enough about Floyd, Reiff, Martin, Kirkpatrick etc for the time being…. I want to focus on people that won’t be first round picks.
Inspiration for this post comes from Nepenthe88 who made a strong argument for Patrick Walker (WR-Northern Colorado) http://www.buffalorumblings.com/2012/3/26/2904456/guess-who-a-mystery-wr-game-for-those-in-the-know.
I’ll start us off:
Like: Shea McClellin (LB) – he could go as high as round two so he’s certainly not totally under the radar but I really like him and want to see what other Rumblers think. Great motor and burst, has been a productive pass rusher and has a nose for the ball. He’s the kind of guy that I think would really benefit from a strong defensive line the Bills have. He’d make a big linebacker (6-3, 258) but I think he’s fast an agile enough that he could play SLB.
Alfonzo Dennard (CB)– a feisty corner that can jam and mirror receivers well, especially underneath. I really like him as a nickel corner and covering the slot receiver but I think his upside is more than that. I also like his ability as a playmaker – he has good burst and hands.
Dislike: Kirk Cousins (QB)– I don’t see any NFL potential in him. He has some strengths but I think his inability to handle pressure is a fatal flaw. Its only going to get worse when the game speeds up in the NFL. As a developmental Qb I’d much prefer BJ Coleman.
Nate Potter (OT)– Another guy that has some legitimate strengths, but has a fatal flaw. He doesn’t show enough strength and gets manhandled too often whether from a powerful edge rush or a bull rush. I don’t see him standing up to NFL DE’s.
