Easy Ansah commands incredibly acute Instincts for a relative newcomer to this Great Game. He still makes mistakes, of course, but his Diagnostic Capacity is Outstanding, and his Processing Speed is Phenomenal.
He is exceptionally Raw, of course, but his Drive Power & Bull Rush is utterly Freakish, and'is Motor is Awesome, and my Gut is telling me that this guy ~ who's only been doing this for 3 Years, of course ~ has precisely the Fusion of Talent, Motor, and Intelligence to accelerate the Learning Process and transform'm into a deadly, devastating Force on the FootBall Field far faster than the vast majority of Prognosticators seem to expect!
2 ~ CB Darius Slay ~ Mississippi State BullDogs @ #36 ~ Excellent Pick ~ Gave'm a 1st Round Ranking!!
Processing Speed ~ Raw, but remarkably acute, considering his shallow level of Experience: A JuCo Transfer who only interned under John Banks for two Years at Mississippi, and who's only started for one. His startling Savvy with such a shallow Resume reveals extraordinary Processing Speed: he'll master this Game rapidly, I believe.
Verticity ~ Magnificent. Turns & Burns like a Gazelle.
Run Defense ~ Heh. Seems he's got better things to do.
Darius Slay has seen his Stock rise rapidly since The Combine, but not rapidly enough to catch up to'is Intrinsic Value. He's weak in Run Defense, but as a Wily, Savvy Route Reader who Rapidly Reads & Reacts to the 21st Century Game and commands phenomenal Flip the Hips Verticity, he commands extraordinary Potential.
3 ~ OG Larry Warford ~ Kentucky WildCats @ #65 ~ Excellent Pick!! Gave'm a 2nd Round Ranking!!
Run Blocking ~ Mediocre in Zone, but spectacular in Man. Awesome Drive Power.
Pass Blocking ~ Excellent. Outstanding Core Strength.
Larry Warford is part Mauling Brawler and part Brawling Mauler.
He is a ferocious, relentless Monster with powerful hands and exceptional Dexterity.
He is A Moderately Wealthy Man's Chance Warmack.
4 ~ SE Corey Fuller ~ Virginia Tech Hokies @ #171 ~ Awesome Pick!! Gave'm a 2nd Round Ranking!!
Corey Fuller, For Those Scoring At Home, is a former Track Star ~ a Star FootBall Player in High School at QuarterBack ~ who, after sitting out a Transfer Year, only in 2011 began the fundamental rudimentals of playing WideOut, and who had a career total of 2 Catches, going into the 2012 Campaign!!
To be sure, he was Raw.
But Fuller advanced by Leaps & Bounds in 2012, and in one short Year his Routing and his general understanding of the Game have advanced at an astonishing rate. Combined with explosive Acceleration Off The Line, outstanding Agility & Precision in'is Routes, and rapidly developing Instinct & Timing, Corey Fuller is rocketing towards a potentially extraordinary Future, in my incredibly humble opinion.
This is a Projection.
There are certainly many guys I rank him ahead'f whose Games are more refined.
But of course: All Draft Picks are Projections.
Yes, the world is rife with Potential, much of which goes for naught.
But when I see someone as athletically gifted as Corey Fuller improving at such a torrential rate, my Gut tells me that he is a far better bet than most of the guys who've been slowly improving for a few Years.
In a word: I believe that Corey Fuller is going to become extraordinary.
And I believe he's going to attain that level of Excellence far faster than most would even dream of.
I'm also rather intrigued by their other Picks.
Devin Taylor, Theo Reddick, Mike Williams, and Brandon Hepburn are all very interesting Prospects.
The Lions, in my Opinion, hit on all 3 of their Top 3 Picks, picked up a 2nd Round Value Dirt Cheap, and racked up an handful of intriguing Prospects with the change. The Matt Millen Era is, blessedly, a Thing Of The Past!!
