was listening to the dave dameshek podcast (if you don't listen check it out, highly entertaining and informative) and daniel jeremiah from the nfl network was on. he had a few interesting comments about scouting in general and i connected the dots to how it could impact us.
1) he said for offensive lineman don't get caught up with the athleticism. the most important things that will translate to success in the nfl is whether an o-lineman is a) smart, b) tough and c) has a strong anchor/strong.
2) he mentioned that you can draft guards all day long in the 3rd, 4th and 5th rounds.
3) easily the hardest position to scout is safety. the reason is you could watch five tapes and get absolutely nothing from them because college offenses are so different from the nfl and it's impossible to see if their skill can translate to the pro game because they are so removed from the action.
with this said it makes me pause a bit about warmack/cooper in the first round if they fall to #16 because of his insight and fisher's resistance to drafting o-lineman in the first round. and gives me a little trepidation about vaccaro in the first as well.
