re: Mel Kipers Latest Big Board

I don't think Sam projects to that athletic/ fast 3-4 OLB that some ppl thought he would. couple that with him always being on the smaller side for a traditional 4-3 DE (and him not being overly athletic for that either), and that's probably where the slide comes in.

if he puts up good combine numbers/ measurements, he could still stick in the late 1st. his sack/ tfl numbers were pretty much the same the last 2 yrs, and he's shown he can be a disruptive player. even if it's not on a Clowney or Jarvis Jones level.

I've seen him mentioned in a mock or 2 to the Falcons, they could use somebody to make plays off the edge.

re: Mel Kipers Latest Big Board
sam is not very big to play DE and not an elite pass rusher. not quick enough to play OLB in a 3-4...he has a high motor and will be a nice rotational guy but he does not project as a pro-bowl type guy.

Hot damn Minter went up this year, I wonder what he was projected last year at this time.

fwiw, what did mingo do to justify his rankings with like less than 5 sacks on year. with the way defense played in 2nd half of season, I can't see us with 2 much less 3 first round picks.

Mingo has tons of upside with his lean frame and freakish athleticism. Sam doesn't.

Traditional 4-3 DE's don't have to be very big. Weighing around 260 is a good size. Robert Mathis around 245, Freeney only has 5-10 pounds on Montgomery. Sonic Sam looked jacked this year and I bet he's gaining weight for the combine. He just needs to run between a 4.65-4.7 to stay in the 1st. The main thing that separates him from other prospects is his high motor. He's relentless on the field.
