2012 Draft - Prospect Scouting

As briefly discussed in the prospects we're looking forward to thread, I'm going to set up this thread just for resources so people can do their own scouting. Will come in very handy for those following the draft, doing mock drafts (especially if there's another Mock Draft game like the one eagle eye set up last year).

Game tape videos are very specific - it's not just highlights, it's every snap from the game that the player in question was on the field for so if you're posting up a prospect, please don't use highlight compilation videos. I'll post the first random prospect in the next post, you'll see what I mean and what this thread should consist of

Quarterbacks
Robert Griffin III
Matt Barkley

Running Backs
Montee Ball
Trent Richardson

Wide Receivers
Justin Blackmon
Kendall Wright
Mohamed Sanu

Offensive Linemen

Tight Ends

Defensive Linemen
Nick Perry
Quinton Coples

Linebackers
Vontaze Burfict
Luke Kuechly

Cornerbacks

Safeties

Robert Griffin III

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 220lbs

Passing - CMP - ATT - YDS - CMP% - TD - INT - YPA - RAT

2008: 160/267 - 2091 - 59.9 - 15 - 3 - 7.83 - 142.0
2009: 45/69 - 481 - 65.2 - 4 - 0 - 6.97 - 142.9*

2010: 149 - 635 - 8 - 4.3
2011: 161 - 644 - 9 - 4.0

* - Injured his ACL after 3 games

Analysis

Robert Griffin III is one of the most dynamic, electrifying playmakers in college football. He can tear you apart in the short game, dissecting defences with slants, screens and comebacks or use his cannon of an arm to beat you deep or take off on a run and use his lightning speed to burn you. He can do almost anything on a football field and more. His deep ball is one of the most beautiful things you will ever see, inch perfect each time. His pocket presence and poise stand out to you as he evades 2 or 3 defenders, steps up in pocket and takes the hit to make the pass. And he's not just some dumb athlete playing quarterback. He's very smart on the field taking what the defence gives him, adjusting his game to exploit it. Very smart off the field too, completed his degree in 2 years and considered attending law school. His leadership, passion and will to win has taken Baylor from a nobody school into the rankings and put them on the map. Without him they struggle to win a game. He's not a running quarterback who can throw, he's a pocket passer with the ability to break a big run. Track star off the field. This is a guy you want as the face of your franchise.

Unfortunately, he's not completely perfect. His intermediate accuracy isn't very good and can be improved. Although he's a good 6'2, 220 his frame is thin. Question marks over his durability in the NFL. Plays out of spread system although has taken a few snaps under center.

If I had the No.1 Overall pick I would draft Griffin, yes over Luck. His potential is crazy. In a few years time, he could be the best QB in the NFL.

Mohamed Sanu
Wide Receiver, Rutgers University 

Class: Junior 
Age: 22
Height: 6'2''
Weight: 218 lbs

Receiving

2009: 51 receptions for 639 yards (12.5 average) and 3 touchdowns. 
2010: 44 receptions for 418 yards (9.5 average) ans 2 touchdowns 
2011: 109 receptions for 1144 yards (10.5 average) and 7 touchdowns 

Rushing

2009: 62 attempts for 346 yards (5.6 average) and 5 touchdowns 
2010: 59 attempts for 309 yards (5.2 average) and 4 touchdowns 
2011: 4 attempts for -2 yards (-0.5 average) and 0 touchdowns

Analysis

Mohamed Sanu is extremely versatile and a very exciting player. He can catch, run, pass and even punt. He's got very good hands and runs solid routes. A great athlete with good speed. He can line up anywhere and succeed. He's got a mean, nasty streak. A dominating run blocker who wants to hit the defender more than they want to tackle him. He is a bigger, more physical Percy Harvin.

Vs. Ohio 24/9/11



Vs. Navy 15/10/11



Vs. Louisville 21/10/11

Ok I suppose I have to put up this one as I've been ragging on about him for over two years now.

Michael Floyd

Wide Receiver, Notre Dame

Age: 22
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 224lbs

Y---Rec Yds - Y/R TDs
2008 48 719 - 15.0 7
2009 44 795 - 18.1 9
2010 79 1025 13.0 12
2011 95 1106 11.6 8


Pros
Floyd is very strong and has great hands which allows him to take a ball at its highest point even when battling defenders. He is a very good run blocker, something I'm sure he picked up during 3 years under Charlie Weis. He is an intelligent route runner. He has picked up a good burst off his cuts this year which is something that would have been a weakness in the past.

Cons
Off the field issues and all drink related. He doesn't appear extremely fast. Injuries were a problem in his first two seasons and missed final two games in 2010. Only missed one in 2011 with a hamstring strain.

Analysis
I've always thought and still do that he can be an elite receiver in the NFL. He is just so tough and his hands are as good as I've seen. I don't think he will burn you down the sidelines with speed but he will catch the ball against any corner and his route running is so good that he is almost impossible to shut down. He can play in any of the receiver positions. I seen an interview with him where he said that he looks at smaller guys who have made it in the NFL to learn from. That for me is very smart for a big man and in the videos you'll see a move that Wes Welker makes in traffic when he catches a ball facing his QB which Floyd has clearly worked on.
Obvously his off the field issues are a concern but I think he has grown up a lot this year. They banned him from the football team after a misdemeanor DUI in March and he didn't get reinstated by Kelly until August. I think he realised just how important it was to sort himself out when that happened. I'll finish with a bit of trivia which is that he holds almost every school record for receiving in Notre Dame which, when you consider how successful the Fighting Irish have been down the years and what QBs have come out of there, is an incredible achievement. Michael Floyd is my binkie in the 2012 draft.

So yeah this thread needs a good old resurrecting as no doubt it ll be good form of insight into the different prospects. Any chance we could get this stickyed up until the draft is finished? Would make referencing prospects quite easy. Anyway enough talk lets look at some prospects!





Name: Brock Osweiler
School: Arizona
Height: 6ft 8
Weight: 109 Kgs

CAREER STATS
SEASON CMP ATT YDS CMP% YPA LNG TD INT SACK RAT
2011 326 516 4036 63.2 7.82 60 26 13 28 140.5
2010 62 109 797 56.9 7.31 78 5 0 7 133.4
2009 24 55 249 43.6 4.53 27 2 2 6 86.4

Pros
Great Size and Arm Strength. Fits a Joe Flacco comparison in measurable. Quick Delivery and Accurate Pocket passer. Has some mobility though it is not his strength.


Cons
Operated mostly out of the shotgun in a spread like offence. Questions about his footwork. Decision making has not been tested tends to be a first read and throw QB. Tends to force plays that aren't there.

Draft Status
Needs a very good combine to demonstrate his footwork and ability to throw from under centre. Big questions relating to how he would work in a NFL offence. Scouts will love his measurable s but may question his decision making. Regarded as a sleeper by some analysts who predict he could go as high as the first round but more then likely will be a low 2nd to 5th round guy.
