    ROUND 6

    #188


    BARRY CHURCH SS TOLEDO
    6'1" 222lbs
    4.69 40-Yard
    19 Bench reps
    36" Vertical
    10'01" Broad
    6.65 3-Cone
    33 1/4" Arm Length
    9 3/8" Hands

    Conference- MID AMERICAN

    Steelers put Church through his drills at Toledo's Pro Day. Good size, but a bit slow in his 40. His 3-Cone suggests he can move well with agility however. Solid contributor.

    Read & React: Among his better areas. Reads the play and is efficient in closing to the line of scrimmage against the run or playing back in coverage. Toledo coaching staff moved up closer to the line of scrimmage because of his rare instincts.

    Man Coverage: An area of concern. Too stiff in the hips and too slow to drop down to cover slot receivers in the NFL. Lacks the range to cover sideline to sideline as a free safety. Good use of hands to re-route the tight end and has better quickness than you'd expect because of his instincts.

    Zone Coverage: An effective zone coverage defender due to his good diagnostic skills and effective but to close. Heady defender that keeps his eyes on the quarterback. Has a sense of the action around him. Good burst to close on underneath routes. A reliable open-field tackler.

    Closing/Recovery: Doesn't possess great straight-line speed to recover or the agility to turn and run with NFL-caliber receivers, but makes up for it with instincts and a sudden burst to close. Competes for the ball, showing better timing and long arms than true explosiveness in his vertical. Though he has nine career interceptions, is inconsistent in catching passes. Dropped too many interceptions.

    Run Support: Among his best assets. Has good size and valuable experience playing at the line of scrimmage. Whether lining up deep or near the line, is comfortable sorting through trash. Protects his legs well from the cut block and isn't afraid to get mixed up with tight ends and even offensive linemen. Tracks the ball well and takes good angles in pursuit. Reliable open-field tackler that can bring the wood as a hitter.

    Tackling: Doesn't possess the speed most teams want in their last line of defense, but ranks among the position's better, more secure open-field tacklers. Keeps eyes up and remains balanced when making contact with the ballcarrier, driving through with his hips to consistently stop the offensive player in his tracks. Isn't a truly explosive hitter, but generates good momentum and has the size and strength to make impressive, physical stops.

    Intangibles: Good student who is well-liked by fans, coaches and players alike. Directs the team on the field and showed great durability by starting every game for four years.

    I really like Ghee...fast, physical and I think can be a very good #2 for us.

    ROUND 7

    #225


    ADRIAN TRACY OLB WILLIAM & MARY
    6'3" 248lbs
    4.76 40-Yard
    20 Bench Reps
    35 1/2" Vertical
    9'02" Broad
    7.08 3-Cone
    33 1/2" Arm Length
    9 1/2" Hands

    Conference- COLONIAL

    Tomlin adds a player from his old stomping ground. Tracy is an athletic player suited to the 3-4 OLB position. A bit of a playmaker. On a team short of depth at OLB, Tacy would have a shot of sticking.

    Read & React: Needs to improve his backfield awareness, will lose the ball and get taken away from the play by misdirection. Lacks elite reaction time, but will close on the ball quickly when he finds it.

    Run defense: Held up well against strong-side tackles at defensive end, but found it hard to disengage. Does use his hands and upper-body strength well to get off tight end blocks on the edge and fight through trash to reach the ball. Willing to take on fullback blocks in the hole, stays low and delivers a blow but lowers his head and shoulder at times instead of keeping his head up. Needs to defeat cut blocks more regularly.

    Pass defense: Fluid and quick dropping at the correct angle. Has the quickness to attack plays in his zone. Good chaser to the ball in space to help out teammates. Good length and vertical to affect passing lanes when coming off the edge. Inexperienced at recognizing routes.

    Tackling: Strong arms to wrap up and drag down ballcarriers inside and on the edge. Secure, but not especially explosive, as a tackler. Will duck his head, though, instead of bringing his hips. Plays a bit stiff, and could be more consistent breaking down to adjust to elusive runners in space. Should contribute on special teams because of his hustle and length.

    Pass Rush/Blitz: Uses his length, strength and hustle to get a pass rush, rather than elite speed and explosion off the edge. Able to bull rush lesser tackles. Sheds tight end blocks off the edge and can rip off in either direction. Could be more consistent running through running back blocks; tries to run around them rather than using his superior strength. Needs more pass rush moves.

    Intangibles: Team captain, solid character. Intelligent player recruited by Ivy and Patriot League schools; on schedule to graduate with kinesiology degree.

    ROUND 7

    #241


    TRINDON HOLLIDAY WR LSU
    5'5" 166lbs
    4.21 40-Yard
    10 Bench Reps
    42" Vertical
    9'08" Broad
    6.54 3-Cone

    Conference- SEC

    Lets face it- someone is going to pick him up. Why not the Steelers with a throw away pick in the 7th? He most likely replaces Stefan Logan as the KR/PR & becomes a big play waiting to happen. What's not to like??


    Release: Has not been challenged with the jam, as he is often lined up well behind the line in the slot or in the backfield. When free to take a step or two off the snap, is very tough to stay with in the second level or beyond in man coverage because of pure quickness and straight-line speed.

    Hands: Small hands that are suspect as a receiver, rusher and returner. However, can make tough catches in traffic, against the sidelines and when gunners are bearing down on him. Able to extend away from his frame to snap up wide throws but has a tougher time reaching over his head, which is a problem for a smaller receiver. Allows the ball too far into his body when facing the quarterback.

    Route running: Great quickness on his cuts, but could run his routes more crisply and get on the same page as his quarterback based on the coverage. Tough to find on crossing routes over the middle without a clear lane because of his lack of size. Has the speed to be a deep threat but will not win many jump ball battles despite a nice vertical.

    After the catch: Extremely quick when running with the ball in his hands. Shows good vision to find holes in traffic, and is tough to find among the big bodies on returns and as a running back. Difficult to bring down even when visible to would-be tacklers, often bouncing off due to his strong running and low center of gravity. Doesn't have immediate acceleration, but finds a second and third gear once in the open.

    Blocking: Won't offer a lot as a blocker because of his size, but is not afraid of contact. Has a relatively strong build for his size. Gets in the way of cornerbacks and safeties in the few chances he gets to run block from the slot. Willing to mix it up in pass protection but lacks the bulk and length to hold off blitzing pro linebackers for long.

    Intangibles: Plays with a chip on his shoulder from being labeled too small to play major college football. Is tougher than one would expect given his size; is a football player with track speed, not vice versa.

    Re: Could it be?

    that is truly a well though out mock draft that merits praise and compliments!


    (Seriously - I really, really like that one. The only thing I might change is one of the late rounders into a potential OT prospect)

    Thanks mate. Chadman eagerly awaits the anti-Timmons association to catch wind of the intended selection of Timmons-lite in Round 4.

    I especially like the Geathers pick. I've had him in my mocks as well and think he could be something.

    Re: Could it be?

    Ed Bouchette, the only man to predict the Steelers drafting Ziggy Hood, has said the Steelers will pick Iupati.


    There must be some sweaty palms on the anti-Iupati gang right now..
