DT Sylvester Williams- UNC
There are several big name DT's in this draft who are first round locks (Star/Floyd/Richardson) so naturally Sylvester Williams has not been able to solidify his place as a round 1 DT, but from what I've seen he is not far off from those 3 big names.
- Very quick first step, he has good athleticism for his size (313 LBS)
- Underrated strength, can push the pile.
- Strong anchor VS the run, can hold a double team.
- His swim move is one of the best I've seen, was unblockable in some cases.
- Needs to show more pass rush moves. Has the strength for an effective bull rush, didn't utilize it.
- Could over rely on his athleticism, try to run around blockers and took himself out of plays.
- Had a tendency to play high too often.
- Motor isn't a concern to me, but his endurance is. Wore down towards end of games.
DE Corey Lemonier-Auburn
There is a plethora of athletic pass rushers at the top of this years draft, that a guy like Lemonier, who had his struggles often during his senior season, could be pushed down some boards in favor of other prospects when it comes to day 1 on draft day. But that does not mean he is not talented, and I see him as one of the top 6 pass rushers in this years class.
- Has the arm length to easily disengage from blockers when rushing the passer.
- Great motor, stays with rush with good tenacity throughout entire duration of play.
- Has a decent get off, but is an effective rusher more due to his agility, several rush moves, and lateral quickness.
- Flexibility and ability to bend the edge are a big concern.
- Snap awareness is inconsistent at best,
- Doesn't have a very good build, not much of an anchor.
From what I saw of Lemonier, he is best when put in space and is able to pin his ears back and rush the passer. He has the size, and speed of a typical LEO but his lack of flexibility is a major concern, as he may be unable to bend the edge. But if the Jaguars do not take a LEO end in the 1st, I expect them to strongly consider Lemonier if he is there at #33 .
OT D.J. Fluker- Alabama
Fluker is known for being a mountain of a man, and a mauler but his pass protection skills leave a lot to be desired. Nonetheless, the Jaguars have a hole at RT, and There is a good chance Fluker falls to the 2nd round due to his ability to only play RT.
- He knows how to use his strength, and combined with his size he is a terrific run blocker. Dominates more times than not.
- He is a very physical blocker, who has the ability to be able to sustain his blocks.
- Length, wide base make him tough to move, has a terrific anchor. Better athlete than given credit for.
- Has heavy feet, and can be beaten frequently by speed rushers.
- Lacks the ability to redirect himself in pass pro, can be beaten to the inside.
- Poor job of mirroring pass rushers.
CB-Darius Slay - Mississippi St.
Darius Slay has garnered a lot of attention leading up to the NFL draft, including a terrific performance at the NFL combine. He is a physical specimen at 6'1" with elite speed (4.36 40 time) and is said to be possbily even better than his counterpart Johnathan Banks.
- Is effective in press coverage; A must for the Jaguars scheme.
- Has good ball skills, shows great instincts.
- Is able to disrupt opposing WR's routes well, great use of hands. Good attacking style.
- Is a willing run defender, effectively works across blocks in run support.
- Sometimes gets caught looking into the backfield, can be fooled by play action,
- Can be a too overly aggressive at times.
