DT Jimmy Staten
Staten had a rough day. He found himself pushed to the ground in pass rush drills repeatedly. He is not getting a ton of reps, and appears to be way down on the depth chart.
FB Kiero Small
Small did not block well in the 1v1 pass rush drills today. If he is not going to be a great pass blocker, his chances of making the team are very small, even if he is a good lead blocker.
So far, WR Kevin Norwood has looked like the biggest draft day steal, followed by DL Cassius Marsh. Kevin Pierre-Louis has had some solid moments, flashing his athleticism, along with speedy WR Paul Richardson and OL Justin Britt.
Here is how I would current rank these draft selections:
1. WR Kevin Norwood (4th Round, 123 overall)- Deadly on jump balls with great hands and catching radius.
2. DL Cassius Marsh (4th Round, 108 overall)- Versatility to play inside or outside, solid arsenal of pass rushing moves.
3. WR Paul Richardson (2nd Round, 45 overall)- Elite second gear to stretch the field but not elite in jump ball situations or escaping the jam.
4. Kevin Pierre-Louis (4th Round, 132 overall)- Schneider seems to have nailed all three moves in the Fourth Round. KPL's athleticism appears to be a perfect fit with this LB corps.
5, OL Justin Britt (2nd Round, 64 overall)- Struggles in pass protection but has a powerful base that makes him a weapon in the running game. His best position may eventually be inside at guard.
All five of these players have looked like strong choices. The next four players have not done much yet.
