Any thought that we consider a corner first 2 rounds considering that our top 2 guys are UFA's and Keenan Lewis can't even beat out Anthony Madison to get on the field in the dime?

I do however, the 1st round corners are all underclassmen and will not be in todays game.

Danny Watkins from Baylor is an interesting prospect. I would like to see what he does in the game.

He really is and I would say he would be worth our 2nd rounder, but he will be 27 years old this summer. Couldnt take him before the 3rd I think.

I thought I read that Patrick, CB from Louisville had an ACL injury during the week. If so that sucks for him because I thought he was showing well. Could be a late round steal if true.

CBs Shareece Wright from USC and Curtis Brown from Texas. together they have completely shut down the North receivers in the first half.

other guys that have looked really good are DEs Cameron Jordan, Ryan Kerrigan, Christian Ballard and Sam Acho, OLB Von Miller, OT Derreck Sherrod, NT Ian Williams, WR Leonard Hankerson and OG Danny Watkins.

not so good...OTs DeMarcus Love and Anthony Castonzo.

I think Taylor looked good. He probably will be the top NT taken in the draft.

Troubled at Penn Sate, Taylor thrives at Baylor

January 27, 2011|By Jeff McLane, Inquirer Staff Writer

MOBILE, Ala. - Phil Taylor shed more than just weight when he left Penn State.

The Baylor defensive tackle left behind his Maryland buddies and the trouble they often seemed to get in together.

Unfettered from both, Taylor blossomed in Waco, Texas, over the last two-plus years and has become a legitimate draft prospect. His combination of size (6-foot-4, 337 pounds) and quickness off the ball impressed NFL scouts during Senior Bowl practices this week.

The Eagles, always in the market for defensive line help, were one of those teams. Whether he fits into their plans come draft day in late April is anyone's guess. But the league-wide interest shows just how far Taylor has come since August 2008, when Penn State coach Joe Paterno kicked him off the team.

"I just moved on with it," Taylor said, "and made the best out of a second chance."

Taylor, of Clifton, Md., was part of Penn State's decorated 2006 recruiting class. Many of those freshmen came from the fertile ground of Maryland and had forged relationships in that close-knit football community.

While that may have seemed like a good reason to attend Penn State, the decision backfired on Taylor and several of his classmates.

"When you get a whole lot of buddies that have been playing high school all together for four years and then come up to Penn State, you're going to get in trouble," Phil Taylor Sr. said. "So they're running all together and they're acting crazy."

In October 2007, about a dozen football players were involved in a brawl at the campus student center. Taylor was among several Lions who were arrested. He pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct misdemeanor.

Taylor hardly played the rest of his sophomore season and was put on probation by Paterno the next spring. Unable to use the team's workout facilities, Taylor said he started to pack on extra pounds.

The weight gain was the least of his problems, however. That summer, Taylor and fellow defensive tackle Chris Baker were involved in a minor pool party fracas. The incident occurred right around the time that ESPN's Outside the Lines chronicled the Penn State football program's troubles with the law.

Just days after the program was televised, Taylor and Baker were booted off the team. Baker enrolled at Division I-A Hampton, but Taylor opted for Baylor, where former Penn State defensive backs coach Brian Norwood was the defensive coordinator.

Taylor had to sit out a year.

All I know is love was getting WORKED and I'm very intrigued by Watkins even with his age. He doesn't have a lot of miles on his frame so could be a James Harrison kind of guy with minimal wear and tear. I think he only has 4 years of football experience, seems like a great guy off the field and is a nasty man on it. Mayock was jocking him pretty good too and I think Mayock and his analysis is the best there is from a college football stand point. I'm a big Mayock fan.

I will say I love Mayock a ton but these rankings he has are way early....he will change them alot. He has a ton of film work to do to catch up to those who have been watching all year.
