We now welcome to show for the first time. Al west bunting here is of national football post dot com left via website it was just turned onto it the other day item west. Are great how are you gonna -- or -- name. I saw I would -- in the snowy north east right now politeness no land Watson all the media day in Tampa Bay right now -- that. Let's start -- as draft on Tommy where you think the cornerback class of 2009. Ranks what kind of classes -- The senior quarterback plant is one of the worst a couple of long parred the last five or ten years that would help out a little bit this year but some of the juniors they came along -- -- were from Georgia. Eat -- the prototypical pocket at -- big strong arm can get the ball down the field. However their concerns about him being able to go to -- progression -- that against and it felt beat France's. Packers he was spotty at best but. Him along with Mark Sanchez for you let the other two top crop back and the guy like Josh agreement from camp and they -- that. Your god and with the Detroit Lions may not want to risk taking a quarterback at number one overall. At number one Freeman might -- spot there numbers won't -- a lot. It's it's always -- when your drafting quarterbacks to begin with thin and looking at it's it's it's a I don't think there's a recipe for success for success when you look at you know Joe Flacco from Delaware and Matt Ryan that was. A good college quarterback but not great but when I look at the two guys want to it's it's Sanchez in the stat for the top two and everyone else falls grossly behind those. To me it's scary to take -- even in the top five with two guys that it didn't as you mentioned both. Very erratic inconsistent I don't think either one of these guys is put together what I believe is -- five or six game run even in college. Yeah exactly look at Stafford were expecting the big year big year at all the cool. And you know all the law to keep looking at the C this year never really got culpable in the pocket. Surrounded by. Pretty good talent the ball that running back with notional Marino on the map of where slot receiver -- Never really put it all together and yep mark answered that US the only one year starter. In the coming into the fold and lead and and -- -- team now. Next year it's a lot to answer these two got that definite -- to be desired in this year's Coca-Cola. You were at the Super Bowl what quarterback impressed you most there. At the senior bowl it was another week -- report showing for a lot of -- guys read but Omar the former Oklahoma sooner now since he's in the show that bat or during the week is really picking out wide receivers. All -- during the one old one broke ever -- the action one lie very sentinel have an eleven on eleven pick aren't really in the struggle there's another -- But he was never able to complete. 60% of his passes at the one double A level I don't know how he's going to progressive yet -- well. He could never complete 60% of the Baptist not a one -- level but the one double A level or the -- position series or whatever you want. So there's concern there Graham Harrell I think that the most outside at any want people talk about his lack of arm strength. He reminds me a bit of -- Chad Henne and he's going to need to become more comfortable and it's drop. He really struggle take him drop from under center this week and then he need to be able to drop the ball off his back foot. He was really broad inadequate that area this week. But I think once you get into it and it felt you know become a little more comfortable with this -- worked. I think he had -- doubt the most upside but it wasn't real intriguing quarterback left out of mobile last week as well. You know we outside about cornerbacks sort of a -- if I have a tough fight pick I go to the defensive side of the ball I just think those guys make. The biggest impact in an immediate impact running backs as well but I thinking get a lot of value later in the draft. And in their running back position we look at Steve Slaton and Ray Rice I don't think you need again the top five. -- good defensive player and I don't know about you but as of the in this draft well I think linebackers in Indy -- retirement linebacker hybrid DN. But I think there's eight or nine just unbelievable prospects in this year's draft. Yet there really count the -- I mean apple can't truckers are always that premed and premium in the NFL. A guy like -- Iraq well from taxes this sky. An absolute monster in the weight program might be a little bit at Derrick Burgess and you know -- on -- side. 260 pounds 62 in that area I think you -- -- or 500 pound. He's not just that NFL -- not yeah outlook is -- the guy can play. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At work around that quick twitch gardens Florida State -- from Florida you know these guys can run get off the field. Penn State redshirt sophomore Aaron meet another yeah another -- deal. Three or rush outside linebacker is only one year old to restore a lot of maturing to do it body's going to develop. But this guy can come in light weight next year and -- yet an outlet pass rush. Despite running the ball -- been taught you know you'll become that every down player but from this point right now incumbent which -- -- -- right away. Our guest is of national football post the dot com is named west bunting on 1080 the fan. And then you look at some of the other linebackers in the in the USC and they've got three of them that that are probably go all within the first two rounds may be in on the first round of the one got the no one talks about that. They get up at five man and NFL guy and in on the personal guy looking to take a shot at someone may be in -- early -- around. -- I really like what clay Matthews has been doing lately this year and that the senior bowl about one of the more impressive guys on the board. -- I agree 100%. Which way about -- got Brian Cushing you've got to gotten all the attention the last 23 years that you let's -- That happens burst your sport likely -- he's come into the full. And only really did was make plays the entire year I've heard of people and and Brian Cushing last week. -- may indicate that claim about the. You actually output or Cushing at most times during the year and it went was the better prospect out of the senior -- IP. Both of them coming off the board the first round I think. Brian Cushing would be an ideal personal pick for rexrodt in the -- new head coach in their report the front. He could play inside could play outside he'd give them a lot of versatility. Clay Matthews I think should be another good fit. But in New England pay. Remember getting guys like junior failed workable Coleman and expect to get production from -- they need to -- and you that the pats roster on the outs but I think clay Matthews. Is that ideal blue collar work Connick guy that flashes big play potential I think he'd be a world actually pick from New England Patriots first round. -- is now legal over rated. I just I don't see the every down consistency to -- ray -- -- is a real risky top ten top fifteen pick. Yeah I don't think -- top ten top fifty in the first round talent and -- Is being able actually had a chance DePaul or belittle that and the big thing about him was the first two days. And it fell out were expecting that dominant performance. And the WorldCcom -- on and it kind of got back to him the next when they came out absolutely. Albany the competition and that practiced that day and then in the game Michael he missed one tackle what was pretty much lights out. So I think without -- up. -- they're concerned about consistency. But when a team like come on I think this guys ready to play a down -- linebacker that likes to attack in the whole. People think he might be a little played really for I think -- -- citizen or repeat offense with two big -- a on of them keeping -- -- and let him. Talking with west bunting of national football post dot com on 1080 the fan it's for thirteen. You were at the senior bowl there were four Oregon and Oregon State prospects there Jeremiah Johnson Patrick Chung of the ducks. Keenan Lewis and you would be treated beavers if you would give people. An idea of where each of those guys may go in the draft. I share my job in the -- really stuck out -- me look like but. I'd -- early yesterday I called -- when he -- Garnett shook it at that level any background there -- looked real fluid in and out of his breaks and I think. Jeremiah Johnson with a weaker senior running back last. Could be one those first seniors a couple or possibly in that third round range I think he's a world like value there. Sure all the little overrated in my opinion because the week's strong -- -- Are you obviously a power hitter in the second Terry a good angle but really struggled redirected and turn it hit one down -- I think keep warm -- Burt -- round diet -- The play cover three. Stay in the box. The peachtree for Morgan State is an existing god played a lot left tackle at Oregon State almost exclusively keep you have to kick inside. The left guard -- it is great technique and great -- and lateral mobility over six to keep a little short market struggle. Are when he spent a lot to get into his body. But at that you know fluidity stamps or move it around. -- the second level I think you look like. Third fourth round prospect. Steven -- he's another guy a really talented quarterback -- this year but looked good all little bit projections. But he looked like a sport that route kind of got -- come and play physical ball -- she also doesn't nice job on coverage would give night public to cut a corner. Right less question lesson will cut you loose you are impressive in your knowledge -- will tell you that. I don't yet the draft April 25 two point six. Let's just go to this first four picks is lot of people are -- now that would see highs will do. Obviously there's a lot of time left as the com vine but just. Pinpoint it Lions won Rams to -- three Seahawks fourth draft started they were eating that would go. I think the line take the safe way out. They don't look Andre Smith that they tackle from Alabama. The Rams are second on the board I think they go all -- to tackle as well to really be offensive tackle class. Eugene Monroe Virginia would be till. Number three I think Scott pioli balance short -- take a peek out at comic in the -- -- its former co worker goes quarterback. -- either mark. Sanchez Matthew Stafford. And number or I believe Seattle Seahawks will try to upgrade that wide receiver corps with the count like Michael Crabtree on the board it almost too good at. Great stuff -- bunting national football post dot com look at me look what can we be looking for on their as as the draft approaches. -- -- punt coverage a lot of mock draft player rating scatter report we're going to do it all felt. The draft coverage is right there come check it out. All right thanks a lot less. They sure got.
