Default Scouting The Pinstripe Bowl


DEC 29, 3:15 PM, ESPN


v.

WVU

STEADMAN BAILEY/ WR


While fellow Wide Out Tavon Austin grabs all the headlines. Steadman actually has the better tools to be more than just a gadget player at the next level. 5'10, 195 lbs with 4.4.Speed. 106 catches for over 1500 yards and NOBODY finds the End Zone more than Steadman (23). Draws comparison to the good Steve Smith

SYRACUSE

SHAMARKO THOMAS/ SS



SS in the Earl Thomas mold (5'10, 210). Hits like a truck and leads his team with 84 tackles. Throw in 3 FF and 2 INTs. Ran a 4.26 40 at Syracuse Junior Pro Day. Has motivation to succeed. Lost both parents within a 9 month period during his Sophomore year and has become the de facto parent of his 5 younger siblings.

I'd like to have both of those guys. Bailey would be a nice upgrade over Baby Hawk and Thomas would be a nice mid to late round pick.

I like Thomas alot. Most of his highlight reel shows him attacking the LOS like a fiend! Great stuff, but how is he in coverage?

Also, Bailey ought to be a no brainer. No offense to Marvin Jones, but Bailey has that "IT" factor that you can't teach.

Thanks for posting this.

Even though not for us, Geno Smith and Ryan Nassib are two good reasons to watch.

Who had the brilliant idea to play a bowl game in New York City?

Thomas sometimes is a little too agressive against the pass.Needs to learn to be a little more disciplined in coverage, he does that and he could become a pro bowl calibur player.

RB Jerome Smith for Syracuse is looking good for his size.

Hard to evaluate RB talent against WVU because their defense is just awful. Oh and I say that as a huge WVU fan.
