Default Scouting The Russell Athletic Bowl


28 DEC, 5:30 PM, ESPN

v.

RUTGERS

JAWAN JAMISON/ RB

Compact RB that rushed for 1054 yards and 4 TDs. Also a threat out of the backfield 27 catches, 322 yards, 2 TDs. When Jamison was healthy Rutgers was 8-1 and on its way to a BCS bowl, sprains his ankle against navy, only carries the ball 28 times in the final 3 games while Rutgers goes 1-2.

KHASEEM GREENE/ OLB

Greene is a personal favorite. 2 time Big East Defensive Player of the Year. Finished the year with 125 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 2 INTs, 5 PDs, and led the nation with 6 FFs. Converted Safety that is the prototypical size of the new wave LB (6’1”, 230). Strong bloodline, brother (Ray Graham) plays RB for Pitt.

VT

BRUCE TAYLOR/ ILB

Perfect sized ILB for a 4-3 D (6’2”, 244). Season ending foot injury in 2011 may hurt draft status, but definitely a big-time talent. Finished 2012 with 66 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Leader on the field.

MARCUS DAVIS/ WR

Big bodied receiver (6’4”, 232). 47 catches for 891 yards don’t jump off the page; however, you must keep in mind VT has a tight end playing QB. We have a surplus of slot receivers, Davis is not that type. A receiver that will only lineup on the out side.

Wonder if Marcus Davis has worked on his blocking at all?

P.S. Thomas' knee was totally down while he still had the ball.

Nice catch by David. Not a catch in the NFL, but shows potential.

And Greene is impressive as always.

Brown wouldn't be a bad 3rd rounder. Greene is a full round better IMO.

Arthur Brown will be one of the best value picks of the draft. A solid NFL starter in the near future, hopefully for Cincy.

How about the big WR for Rutgers, Coleman? 6-3 235, not fast, but big and good hands.

Rutgers undersized NT Scott Vallone #94 has more career starts than anyone in the Big East right now. Try hard guy with tweener size. Late round material but he will give you everything he's got.

Bruce Taylor has been really impressive.

And if the Va Tech CBs could catch this would be a much different game.

Greene has been as advertised. Although I think his TD should have been a safety.

Maybe a late-round pick to be used in redzone/short-yardage situations? I wouldn't mind it.

Hosley dropped a few picks in the Sugar Bowl last year. Luckily Michigan won one they did not deserve.

Jamison has been a major disappointment.

Greene has been business as usual; if he is there at 2A, would be a great pick

Taylor has been the emotional leader as advertised

Davis has been the best O player for VT

Not many teams draft 230lbs LBs in the first. If he puts on 10 pounds and maintains his speed he will be alright. If he can't pack anymore onto that frame a lot of teams will be concerned about his size. He looks pretty thick already.

I think he's thick enough as it is.

Definitely for real.

Any 6'1" 230lbs LBs you know of drafted in the first round? I looked some up. Lawrence Timmons, Jon Beason, Jonathan Vilma,TKO were not the biggest.

A LB is fighting an uphill battle when HBs outweigh them.

You have to be a real special player to make size not matter in the NFL. I don't know many LBs who win battles in which they are giving up 100lbs to an OL.

I'm just saying. He was a safety. And if it turns out Rutgers has been playing the old roster trick and listing a guy bigger than he really is...

How much did Ray Lewis weigh coming out of Miami? Not making a talent level comparison, but they are about the same height. Although Greene could turn out to be shorter at the combine.

Edit: Lewis was 240
