People said left and right we’d see “reaches” and “drops” due to lack of info and face to face time. People fall in love with DJ or Kipers big board and that becomes gospel. It’s worse when (guilty of it too) we all build our rankings off of there’s. It’s an echo chamber. The thing is surprise me with it they picked Leatherwood over Darrisaw. So then I looked on the nfl network scouting report and this is what I found on what scouts thought of Darrisaw overall: Athletically gifted left tackle prospect with the natural talent to be as good as he wants to be. Darrisaw plays with plus body control. He has the initial quickness and smooth agility to get to any and all blocks in the run game. The tape shows a player who's able to make jaw-dropping cutoffs on the backside but who gives half-hearted effort securing down blocks and squeezing down to help protect the B-gap. He's flexible and loose in pass pro, with the foot quickness and hand strength to punch and close up shop on would-be edge rushers. His mirror can get a little lazy at times, and he will definitely need to do a better job of finishing his blocks. The low-burn field demeanor leads to inconsistencies in play, but the athletic traits and talent as a true left tackle should create first-round demand as a higher-ceiling, lower-floor prospect. i’m pretty sure this had to do with why we passed on Darrisaw. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
