Trying to catch up on some posts I wanted to make a few weeks ago.
I watched the East-West Shrine game and there was little to report for anybody interested in the draft. Generally speaking, it was a dull game and little happened worth mentioning.
Anyway here's some notes I took (not much):
-Ali Villanueva, TE (Army) just looks like an amazing target in the Red Zone. I remember his height being a problem for the Midshipmen in the Army/Navy game.
-O'Brian Schofield, DE/OLB (Wisconsin) made a nice play on a ball for an INT, could be a decent pick up as a 3-4 OLB
-Blair White, WR (Michigan St.) looks like he could be a solid possession receiver. Nice route runner, gets good separation.
-Pat Paschall, RB (North Dakota St.) decent cut, pass catcher
-Andre Dixon, RB (Connecticut) 1 cut back, durabilty
- John Skelton, QB (Fordham) Amazing release, "Laser Arm"!!!!, looks inconsistent at times. Todd McShay (calling the game in the booth) says that there are concerns about his work ethic ala JaMarcus Russel.
-Keenan McCardell was the WR coach for the West team, it wouldn't surprise me if some WRs or DBs that played in the game get signed by the Skins as late round draft picks or UDFAs. It's nice to have a guy on the inside to scout a few players.
Looks like most of these players will be drafted at best in day three of this years draft.
