Dang, Arian Foster/Larry Johnson. That dude sounds like a stud.

Have you watched him?

Anderson is the best back in the draft probably goes top 20 if he’s healthy. 

It’s just gonna depend on how healthy he is

I have not. I'm not a big college football guy and the Steelers don't really have a need at RB so I don't generally look at them.

DeForest Buckner

6-7 291, 34 3/8”, 11 3/4”

5.05 40, 1.77 10 split, 21 reps (pro day), 32” Vert, 116” Broad, 7.51 3 Cone, 4.47 Short Shuttle

Jerry Tillery

6-6 295, 34 1/4”, 10 5/8”

4.93 40, 1.69 10 split, 23 reps, 32” Vert, 115” Broad, 7.45 3 Cone, 4.33 Short Shuttle

I've got to disagree with you and @BleedTheClock about Tillery's physicality. He flashes more angriness and power than Buckner did at Oregon.

Buckner's always been more or less a big finesse DE. He's gotten a lot more technically sound as a pro with his anchor and handwork and has had success, but he's never really been nasty. Tillery plays like a DT ..at times rag-dolling guys, anchoring with leverage, and does what you'd expect a NT to do. He's just unbalanced too often and gets high in pursuit. But the physicality is certainly there.

I think it's a fair comp between the two but Buckner was a smoother athlete; basically an edge DE that was big enough to play inside. Tillery is more a true interior guy, and plays with more explosiveness but also much less consistent body control than Buckner.

Anyone have decent comps for some of the edge guys like

Charles Omenihu

Jaylon Ferguson

Anthony Miller

Zach Allen

Joe Jackson

Oshane Ximines

Charles Omenihu - longer Lawrence Guy

Jaylon Ferguson - smaller William Gholston

Zach Allen - Derek Wolfe

I don't know who Anthony Miller is and haven't gotten to all the edge guys yet.

Jaylon Ferguson = Preston Smith (but I think Ferguson does more with his potential)

Zach Allen = Brett Keisel

Keisel is a name i haven’t heard in a while! Good one! 

 

Also didnt realize how long Ferguson actually is. Preston Smith hasn’t really put it all together yet but I definitely see where you’re coming from there.
