Since the end of OldhamA's CSR Mock Offseason I've noticed I had still had plies of research and data that either I didn't use or lost and forgot about I decided to put this research to work and bring to you The Undrafted's, players that I think I would look forward to seeing more of at Rookie Mini-Camp and hopefully even the Active Roster or Practice Squad.
My first player was a teammate of are #1 pick last season. He played all 3 LB spots through his career but broke out this season manning the Middle to lay claim to the 3rd most tackles in the BCS. Here is Boston College LB Nick Clancy.
6'3 232lbs, Arm Length: 31.5, Hand: 8 7/8, Awards: 2012 Coaches All-ACC Football First
Team, 2012 All-ACC 1st Team by the ACC Media Association, 2xACC LB of the Week 2012 Season: 12gm, 145TT, 12.1TPG, 4TFL, 10PB, 1FF, and 1KBlk. 2gms with 20 or more Tackles and came within 1TT of a BC record, 25, with 24TT, 14 solo, against Northwestern. Played MLB all season.
2009-2011 Seasons: 30gms, 41TT, 3.5TFL,2PB, 1FR, and 1Int. Played both SLB and WLB from 09 to 11.
The Perfect backup at the MLB spot that can play both WLB and SLB and when given the chance can get the job done. Already knows Kuechly so he can help Clancy with the playbook and any other problems he may have. Will most likely need a year on the PS to work on his technique and playing speed. Averge Athlete who needs to work on not being so hesitant once the ball is snapped. Has a well built frame and has a good burst once he locates the ball and is generally a good open field tackler. Quick enough to shed blocks and long enough arms and toughness to take on and shed blocks.
My second player knows 2nd round pick Amini Sitatolu very well. He was his backup at LT and played RT as well and returned to the left side for his senior season. Here's Midwestern State OT Joe Unga.
Joe Unga stands 6'6 and weighs 320lbs. Has 10' hands and 32 1/8 arms. Another Polynesian Monster who has a temperment simular to Silatolu but dosen't get penelized as often as Amini does. Was part of a run based Offense that gained on average 531yds of total offense a game and scored an average of 48 points a game and rushed an average of 323yds a game. Attended Mount San Antonio College for his 1st 2yrs of College Football because he could not qualify grade wise. Was named CCCFCA All-Region III team honers in 09 and 08. Football is in this familys blood, older brother played DE for Arizona State, younger Twin Brothers are juinor LBs at Oregon State and BYU. Cousin FB Naufahu Tahi played 5 NFL seasons with the Vikings, cousin RB Reno Mahu earned an All-Pro Selection in 2005 after 5 seasons with the Eagles, and cousin RB Harvey Unga is BYU's all-time leading rusher and was selected by the Bears in the 2010 Supplemental Draft. Invited and played in the Casino Del Sol All-Star Game. Most likely a PS canidate his first year but could return to the DE postion he prefers to play. Needs to work on sealing off DE and other bull rushers if he plays on the left side plays a lot better on the right side though. Plays through the whistle and isn't afraid to get a little mean and dirty on opposing defenses. Is a road grader who could also move inside to guard. I believe adding Unga would also benefit Silatolu as well. It gives him someone who has played on the same college level as him and someone to learn with and grow as a player.
My last player was this years Sammy Baugh Award for Best College QB in the Nation. He directed the #1 Scoring Offense and Total Offense and the #4 Passing Offense. He directed the only Offense to score at least 51 points in 8 games. He set the new NCAA record for Passing ATTs without an Int., 444 passes. Here's Lousiana Tech QB Colby Cameron.
2009-2012 Seasons: Played in 33 of 38 games.
Passing: 811Atts, 524Comp, 64.6Pct, 6153Yds, 90YdLong, 43Tds, 12Int
Rushing: 133Atts, 399Yds, 5Tds
A winner at the WAC Level who also pulled off wins against Virginia in 2012, there first SEC win since 2008 against Ole Miss in 2011 and threw 5TDs against a very good Texas A&M Defense in a 59 to 57 Loss. 2011 WAC Champions and has a brother, Jordan Cameron, who plays TE for the Browns. Has a very good arm and can move in the pocket. Is not afraid to take off and run the ball if a play breacks down. Was a Combine arm this year. Has a simular skill set to Matt Moore but is a little more mobile. He's worth stashing on the PS for a year until we decide what to due with Clausen and could even be a game day inactive like Clausen was. Only a 1 year starter but made marked improvement in his game every year. Not a perfect backup for are Offense but worth a look in camp.
Well this is it for now. Got kids crying and it my turn to check on them. Love any feed back you have.
