LOL at comments thread with posters going crazy over a 6th round comp.

AB? Hell, let's go for Brady.

Randy Gregory apparently was wise enough to test positive for weed at the Combine.  For the millionth time, the weed isn't the issue, but intelligence, commitment, and how the league will test him are.  With the questionable commitment to weight training, I would not be surprised if he suffers a substantial drop.  As noted, not a great 3-4 fit, and this just pushes him farther down the list.

Hehe.

"I blame myself," Gregory told NFL.com in revealing the positive test. "And I know it sounds cliché, but there's really no one else I can blame."

Interesting stat from my daily calendar:

At 185.2 yards per game, the Steelers had the NFL's best passing defense (yards~wise, obv) in 2012.

Only two short years later, Pittsburgh finished the 2014 season near the bottom in this category with a 253.1 yards per game average.

Also, for comparison purposes, the Seahags led the league in 2014 with a 185.6 average.

Fix the secondary...damnit.

DHB re-signs.  Hopefully they'll draft a WR at some point and go with those 5 (AB, MB, MW, DHB and rook) or maybe they'll move the runt from RB to 5th WR. 

Would be nice to have a 3rd TE with promise behind Heath (Spaeth is what he is)

So maybe this offseason Jarbust is actually going to learn how to lift a weight.

Unfortunately, you can't teach quickness and speed.

Also there is this from Tomlin:

On the impact of young LBs Jarvis Jones, Ryan Shazier, Vince Williams and Sean Spence working out with James Harrison during the offseason in Phoenix: “I think it’s immeasurable. I think James is coming to realize he’s playing alongside a generation of guys who grew up watching him, and for them to get the opportunity to get behind the curtain, if you will, and see how he puts it together, how he prepares, how he gets himself physically and mentally ready to do it, to do it alongside him is really special.”

So maybe this offseason Jarbust is actually going to learn how to lift a weight.

Combine pic.  He's added a good bit of muscle while in college.

6'3", 267#, 4.62 40, 25 x 225#, 39" VJ, 10'7" BJ.  *Best at combine among DEs in: 40 time, VJ, BJ, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle.

As a senior, had 61 tackles, including 11.5 TFL, and 6 sacks. 

Jarvis:

6'2", 245#, 4.88 40, 20 x 225#, 30.5" VJ, 9'3" BJ.

As a junior, had 85 tackles, including 24.5 TFL, and 14.5 sacks.

Lamarr:

6'1", 266#, 4.74 40, 29 x 225#, 38.5" VJ, 9'9" BJ.

As a senior, had 36 tackles, including 16.5 TFL, and 12 sacks.

Comparison of the 3:  Woodley and Owamagbe both came out as DEs, whereas Jarvis was a true OLB.  That may account for some of Jarvis's gaudier stats, because when you look at his measurable they're flat out embarrassing compared to the other 2.  In that, Owamagbe has the edge on Lamarr.  Owamagbe's stats are not going to wow anyone, but I could see him being more productive as a pro, especially as a 3-4 OLB.  Teach him technique and let him anchor across from Jones, and hope that Jones shows some growth this year. 


Analysis

Strengths


Absolute Greek God with the pads off. Shredded physique with very little body fat. Strong at the point of attack. Plays with desired anchor and strong lower body. Run defender who can close down creases. Gets off ball with good pad level and has potential to convert speed to power. Hands are violent and active. Relentless and competitive. Never gives up on a pass rush. Expected to be a core special-teams talent. Can play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker.

Weaknesses

Not skilled as a pass rusher. Won't win around the edge often and must prove he can counter back inside. Has dealt with two surgeries on his hip and missed all of 2013 because of it. Lateral agility is limited. Range in pursuit in question. Could be mismatched if forced to cover in space. More unit fit than talented player.

Sources Tell Us

"He's not Courtney Upshaw, but he could be used kind of like that. I can see him playing in both 4-3 or 3-4, but he can't be counted on as a pass rusher and you have to know that he will be limited to just being a run stopper." -- AFC national scout

NFL Comparison
 
Sam Acho

Bottom Line
 
Odighizuwa has some scheme versatility, but he's not necessarily a versatile player. Some scouts believe that he could open some eyes with his straight-line speed in his workout, but his marginal pass-rush skills and average athleticism could stunt his draft stock.

34 picks earlier, now they're in Antonio Brown territory!
