Yeah and Terrell Owens played at UT-Chattanooga and still got drafted in the 3rd round.
John Randle got passed on because of his measurables. He was thought to be too small. ...

[quote]Why didnt 32 teams take a chance on him after 7 rounds?
Why didn't teams take a chance on John Randle?
It just happens sometimes. Thomas and Kevin Reddick were both mid-round draft prospects coming into the draft process that slid for whatever reason. ...

I don't think there's any doubt it'll utilize personnel better than the last scheme..but whether it works or not is yet to be seen, and if we're going on trac...

That mid-range shot is going to bode well for him in the coming years.
Once he gets bigger and stronger there's really not going to be a spot on the floor you can defend him at.
He's gonna blossom into a big time player within a couple years..rebounding numbers were fantastic for minutes play...

D'haquille Williams was the best player in the state his senior year of high school. Absolutely fantastic, one of the best high school receivers I've ever seen.
This is a one year thing, but oh my goodness he's going to tear it up for a year. So friggin good....

Nah I'm pretty sure he's played inside his whole life. Even in college. He's just small for the position but he's fast so it makes up for it....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Kevin Reddick and Chase Thomas comparisons - HMTVBrian2 on 5/1/13 at 5:38 pm|
Reddick and Thomas could've been picked in the 3rd or 4th tbh.
Neither are explosive athletes and that's why they slid. I don't think it'll affect Reddick much though, Brandon Spikes ran like a 5 flat and he's a fine player inside. ...

I guess if you switch up your fronts you can have use for them. I really think Vilma's done though. Can't move like he used to....

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Roster "Locks" as of today - HMTVBrian2 on 4/29/13 at 4:29 pm|
I think they'll for sure keep all 3 safeties if only because Harper plays a significant role in the scheme and Jenkins is on the end of a pretty reasonably cheap deal.
Now, after this year, all bets are off. Especially if Vaccaro turns out to be as solid a player as I think he will....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Biggest UDFA Impact - HMTVBrian2 on 4/28/13 at 1:01 pm|
I'm on Reddick too tbh. The scheme is going to accentuate what he does best. He's got a shot to be a nice player here....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Rufus Johnson vs Chase Thomas - HMTVBrian2 on 4/28/13 at 12:55 pm|
IDK if Thomas is completely maxed out but he's not a spectacular athlete so that's definitely why he fell in a deep draft.
Kevin Reddick too. But I expect both will be solid pros tbh. They have talent.
Reddick especially will succeed here imo. He's an inside linebacker that can rush the passer...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Chase Thomas = Scott Shanle - HMTVBrian2 on 4/28/13 at 12:40 pm|
Thomas can play. He's very skilled with his hands and disengages from blockers well, has some pretty advanced pass rush moves for a college guy, and he's big enough to slide inside too.
He's not an explosive athlete, though, so that hurt him, but he can be a solid pro for sure....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Signing Kevin Riddick & Chase Thomas is like getting 2 extra draft choices - HMTVBrian2 on 4/27/13 at 9:12 pm|
Anytime you watched Stanford last year Chase Thomas usually stood out. Real hustle player..very technically sound, with his pass rush moves and stuff, just not an exploder like a Mingo or Ansah and that's why teams passed on him.
But man he plays hard....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: UDFA Signing thread. - HMTVBrian2 on 4/27/13 at 7:43 pm|
Chase can play inside too which gives you some added options for him. I really think this is going to be a steal...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: UDFA Signing thread. - HMTVBrian2 on 4/27/13 at 7:40 pm|
Could've been a 4th round pick. Good, solid, SOLID linebacker.
He'll make the team and play early imo....
