First, "I collect LB's, I like them and think that you can't have enough of them"
Second, "all the RB's in the league are the same behind a bad OLine"
The second quote could be said of LB's and DLines as well. I think Te'o will be a really good player if he has a solid DLine in front of him. He takes good angles and is a sure tackler. If he has to face two OLineman every play he will be ineffective (just like every other LB in the league)
out of position. His last 2 years he played his position very well, so he isn't athletic any more? I don't see it. He is a very good athlete.
I thought Eifert blocked fine. He wasn't Mike Ditka, but he blocked fine. Kelly split him out to get mismatches. It wasn't Eifert who did that.
and it hurt him a bit in pass coverage. I think he slimmed down this year and played much better against the pass. I am interested in seeing how he does in the agility/speed drills at the combine.
I think Eifert is an excellent prospect and that there are a few other big dudes that can run at TE in this draft. This is an excellent draft at that position.
in previous years?
Garbage scouting. How does a scout really know if Tyler Eifert likes to play football. And why would that even matter?
Nate Silver on line one ...
word for word. Most of the stuff I've seen gives Eifert credit for much improved blocking. I'm sure that there were some mixed opinions about Te'o. He got a lot of credit for what was great team defense. But Te'o was pretty good about sharing it. He said at one point that Nix deserved a tremendous amount of credit for keeping offensive linemen off of Te'o.
And as dumb now as they were then
Not exactly rocket science insights
90% of which is crap planted to drive players values down so their team can get him.
so their teams can scoop them up.
However, if you read the scout comments on the so-called top 18, you'll see that they find something wrong with practically every player. I think they doing CYA in case the player doesn't pan out. I have read a lot of these comments over the years and the general "Yea, but" comments haven't changed much. (They did drool over Andrew Luck.)
football" (have you watched him play?) he may not like football, but he'd be happier playing wide receiver, which evidently, is less like playing football. maybe everyone should express their joy by dancing like ray lewis.
Te'o is immature. Huh?!
Eifert only plays football because he's good at it. Huh?!
Motta isn't as good as Harrison Smith, but he's more trustworthy than GA's Rambo. Huh?!
There isn't even any anecdotal evidence, just baseless statememts
from a distance. It's not only impossible, but it's the fast road to stupid.
I hope Eifert torches his ass.
