Johnson, Daryl, LSU discussed on The College Draft with Ross Tucker


Big kid, probably the best natural thrower of any other quarterbacks here to me if he comes down here, and they had a it was a long night of meetings last night. A lot of these NFL teams met with these players long into the night last night to me, Cornelius if he went into interviews and show that he's got what it takes mentally to be a backup quarterback. I think he's gonna make it. I think he could get. Drafted. I I was pretty pressed with what he showed physically. And again, this guy was only a one year starter. He was backing up. Mason Rudolph throughout the course of his career. Let's get then to the running back position where there's some some other notable names here on the east. You got tied Johnson. The speed kid from Maryland, Marcus young from UMass Jordan hilas from Virginia. Daryl will fork the army full-back, they call him the Sherman tank. I called a couple of his games this year. He's just got a hilarious body type. He's like have nine to thirty five me. And he's like a dump truck out there. You got the kid from Nebraska, the kid for Mellish shoe? And then Darren Hall junior from Pitt. It's interesting because there was clearly a drop off. I thought at running back at LSU. I mean, you had four net you had guys. And then you know, the kid this year. It was just kind of. Okay. Yeah. Percent doesn't allow you in any physical way. From like a dynamic athletic ability standpoint, he's not overly powerful. He does have some tower. But he's more of that backup running back. I think the role that he played throughout the course of most of his career at LSU is really the role that will play here in the NFL. I think he could be a nice backup. He's a really good special teamer. He's a really good blocker. And pass protection. Does a lot of the little things while he's definitely a dirty work kind of player to me the three guys that stand out from this group. Overall would be percent the guy my number one guy down here is divine a zippo from from Nebraska. I mean, another kid who's got definite power. He played in the two thirties throughout the course of his career. I was told that he came down here in the low to twenties. So I by fischel, heightened weights haven't come down. I just I spoke with somebody yesterday who said he came here in in the low to twenty s so zig Bo as a guy I'm excited to see continue to practice here, you typically don't see much from running backs during all star game weeks to practice that you really have to wait until the game to see what they can do in live contact drills. But zig bows guides me if there's anybody that could be starter at this game. I think it's him and I would throw tie Johnson from Maryland in there as well. You mentioned he's got that speed to burn. He was a kick returner at the college level. He showed the ability to work in pass protection as well. To me. I think you can you can carve out a role for a guy like that in the league. So let's get to wide receiver. And there's a lot of them on the east got DeMarcus lodge for Mississippi State, Terry Godwin from Georgia Terry right from Purdue Jamal Custos from Syracuse Ryan Davis from Auburn more. Most notably. We'll we'll split up east and west for wide receivers since there's so many of them most notably Jesper horse dead from the undefeated, Princeton Tigers total stud. I will say know. I don't I don't know how he did yesterday. Or what you think of him?.

Coming up next
