They still need a safety

Mike Iupati

 

Iupati was named one of three finalists for the 2009 Outland Trophy, alongside Russell Okung of Oklahoma State and eventual winner, Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska. Since the inception of the award in 1946, only major college players were bestowed that honor. The last time a non-BCS school featured a player who was even a finalist for the award was in 1992 -- offensive tackle Willie Roaf of Louisiana Tech.
Iupati is no stranger to the media that covered the Western Athletic Conference, though.


The two-time winner of Idaho's Wayne Anderson Coaches Award, he was recently selected to the WAC's All-Decade Team. He was the only active player chosen to that unit.


The left offensive guard led the major colleges with a blocking consistency grade of 90.38% in 2009, as he went on to solidify his "pedigree" with an excellent week of displaying his skills vs. the more publicized linemen during practices leading up to the Senior Bowl. He was just the eleventh player in school history to play in that prestigious all-star classic, and the first since 2000. Based on reports from every pro team, he certainly made a lasting impression.


"Mike's performance this season has established himself as potentially the best offensive guard in the upcoming NFL draft," Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale said. "Anyone who watched him play this year knows that he was clearly a difference maker for the Vandals."

How bad was the 49ers line? Having Bryant and Crabtree lined up for the next 10 years is potentially an all-time great pairing based on draft rank. Of course, I think this is a really shitty year for WR's so who the fuck knows?

Got him!

 

Pouncey started 39-of-41 games in which he appeared at Florida, providing excellent pass protection while using his explosion off the snap to regularly attack second-level defenders. His consistency and dominance at the line of scrimmage helped him become the first player in school history to capture the Rimington Trophy, given annually to the nation's best center.


One of the toughest offensive linemen in the collegiate game, it was fitting that he recorded one of his best blocking efforts in his final appearance for the Gators, despite being in obvious pain. Prior to the 2010 Sugar Bowl, Pouncey spent five-plus hours at a local hospital because of kidney stones. He received a CT scan which showed no kidney obstruction, got some IV fluid and suited up. He would hold the Cincinnati defensive line to no tackles, record seven knockdowns that included two touchdown-resulting blocks and graded 94 percent for blocking consistency.

If Iupati and Davis work out the Niners line is set for next 6-8 seasons.

Make a wish foundation announcing the Steelers pick is choice.

Sean Weatherspoon from Missouri goes to the Falcons

 

Read & React: Good instincts and reaction speed -- knows the game and plays very fast. Reads plays quickly. Easily identifies screen and bootleg and takes away the open check-down receiver in the flat. A bit overzealous against the run. Will take false steps, bite on play-action and run past the ball in the backfield.


Run defense: Very good chase defender who comes downhill in a hurry, especially if the play goes east-west. Scrapes down the line and finds the opening to attack the running back. Physical but tries to avoid linemen in traffic, picking his way through to the ball. Spies the quarterback to prevent long runs on scrambles, and will beat them to the corner from the middle. Usually takes the right chase angle, but is quick enough to recover if the ballcarrier cuts back. Will take on fullback and lineman blocks inside, but does not have the size or punch needed to regularly disengage. Also has troubles getting off run blocks from larger receivers.


Pass defense: Recognizes routes in zone coverage, and is quick enough to lay a lick on receivers coming into his area. Gets deep in his drop and covers a lot of ground. Good enough change-of-direction agility in space to stick with receivers on the edge and run with backs and tight ends over the middle. Runs down the seam with almost any receiver. Natural athlete with very good hand-eye coordination for the interception or pass breakup. Uses quickness and hands to avoid cut blocks by receivers in space. Will face matchup difficulties against taller, faster tight ends at the next level.


Tackling: Wraps up elusive ballcarriers in space. Can line them up for the explosive tackle if given the chance. Pounds receivers coming over the middle, using his shoulder to lay them out. Will overpursue plays or hit a hole before the runner has reached it, opening a cutback lane. Relies on hitting with his shoulder, which will be an issue at the next level. Undisciplined breaking down in space, allowing elusive runners to go around him.


Pass Rush/Blitz: Effective blitzer who finds a hole and explodes through it. Quick enough to elude fullbacks in the hole to get to the quarterback. Can close quickly on quarterbacks and puts on major hits. Works through blocks from tight ends on the edge and linemen or running backs inside to rush the passer. Times jumps to knock down passes on his way to the quarterback.

Houston Texans select Kareem Kackson, DB, Alabama.

 

Read & React: Good route recognition. Reads the body lean of his opponent and has the athleticism to react accordingly. He anticipates the path of the ball and extends to reach around a receiver to break up passes. Reads run quickly and attacks the run on the perimeter.


Man Coverage: Good bump-and-run corner. Provides a good, physical pop at the line of scrimmage and keeps his hand on the receiver downfield to control. Good use of body to push the receiver outside, using the sideline to help cut off the space in which the quarterback can throw the ball. Allows too much separation on deep routes and has stiffness in his hips when suddenly changing direction. Face guards at this level, but won't be allowed to do so in the NFL.


Zone Coverage: Good awareness for zone coverage. A bit high in his backpedal and has some stiffness in his hips, but trusts his eyes and locates the football quickly. Savvy, physical player. Likes to use his hands to re-route the receiver. Has quick feet and a good burst out of his breaks to close.


Closing/Recovery: Lacks an elite second gear to recover if beaten initially, but has an impressive burst downhill to close on the ball. Plants his foot and drives, showing good body control to adjust around the receiver and get his hands on the ball. Times his leaps well and has an explosive vertical. Good hand-eye coordination and ball skills to extend and pluck outside of his frame.


Run Support: Aggressive to the line of scrimmage to help against the run, protecting the edge and forcing the back to cut back inside. Fights through the receiver's block and has the agility to elude bigger blockers in tight quarters. Good vision and effort to cut through the trash in pursuit. Takes good angles in pursuit.


Tackling: Strong wrap-up tackler. Brings his hips through and can be a big hitter on the boundary. Willing to face up bigger ballcarriers. Will lead with his shoulder when he sees the receiver in a vulnerable position. Good strength for the drag-down tackle when trailing the receiver across the middle.

*Reports said Ravens were hot on this guy.

You'd know better than I.

I'm hoping the Giants score either Kimble or Lee later in the 2nd to shore up the LB core. Fuck! They need some LB's something fierce.

Isn't nice not having to listen to Michael Irvin screaming during the picks??!!

I think this is his second year out, but Gruden is alot better with Young.
