San Diego Chargers: Bolt Beat War Room – 2012 NFL Draft Day 2 Thread

Bolt Beat War Room Day 2!!!

Once again, jump down into the comments section to discuss the happenings of NFL Draft Day 2. You can also jump onto the Cover It Live Chat Area to write also. That requires me to accept you onto the system first, so don’t be alarmed when your comment in there does not show up immediately.

Tweets will show up on there also, so if you don’t want to know the pick before the TV says it, then you might just want to get off the computer. I peeked away when it was our turn yesterday.

    From NFP :A physically put together, long armed, athletic tackle with good girth through his lower half who looks stronger than his frame would indicate. Exhibits the ability to coil up into his stance, keep his base down off the ball and exhibits an explosive first step. Routinely gets off the ball on time and into the chest plate of blockers quickly, exhibiting the natural power to hold the point inside when run at. He extends his arms well and, despite not being the most violent of defenders when asked to shed, has some coordination to get off blocks and the range to make plays off his frame. I would like to see him be a little more balanced routinely as a run defender as he will lower his head into contact and allow his lower half to get upright on the play at times allowing himself to be sealed off the snap. Plus, at times, he doesn’t find the football consistently inside. However, he exhibits the first-step quickness and arm-over to threaten gaps off the ball, knife his way into the backfield and stop plays before they start. Breaks down well for a big guy and wraps solidly inside. Needs to win with his first step as a pass rusher at this stage. Exhibits the burst to threaten gaps and/or cross the face of a blocker and make his way into the backfield. Is a gifted athlete who can stunt inside and exhibits good closing range in space. Gets upright into contact off the ball at times. However, he has the skill set, to rush the passer. At times will flash the ability to stay low, extend his arms in order to keep himself clean and side step blocks laterally. Showcased some improvements to his game at the Senior Bowl as a pass rusher and should be able to continue to improve. Gets his hands up routinely inside and knocks a lot of footballs down at the line. Impression: Displays some natural talent and did a better job at Senior Bowl playing with a lower pad level. If he can continue to play lower should be able to fight for a starting role in both a 34 or 43 scheme as a three or five technique.
     
    Thought they would get Thompson but AJ probably know more about this than me. 

  • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

    i dont know.. i dont know about this

    • dorourke2312

       @epadaon Would have probably preferred the O line help but it was too much of a reach for safety or RB at this point, so I think it makes sense.  We just have soooo many DTs now.

    Most athletic DT in this draft. – Kiper

  • RussellGrant

    Isaiah Pead.  I can just imagine what it was like for him in school. OK, back to the draft…

    • A_Eme_O_Ere

       @RussellGrant LMAOSHIDMT

  • tank58

    even though I wanted to go Defensive back I feel he is a solid pick and will only add depth, fresh young legs build for a better defense

  • KennyRedman

    Off to google Reyes

  • A_Eme_O_Ere

    Will be the best DT in this draft 2 years from now. – Jon Gruden
    His measurables are all better than Worthy. 
    In AJ I must trust. In AJ I must trust.  In AJ I must trust. In AJ I must trust.

  • derivasllc

    Like I wrote in the last post” this shit sucks” yeah he might be a great DT in 2 years but what about today, this season? we have other holes we need to cover and DT is not one of them. We need someone to take the place of Jammer, a DB would of been the next hole to fix. We also need OT’s, and RB’s.

    • BrandonReisinger

       @derivasllc What sucked in the last post? You did not like the Ingram pick?!?!

      • derivasllc

         @BrandonReisinger No the Kendall Reyes post, and I also posted it on facebook sorry for the confusion.

        • derivasllc

           @BrandonReisinger I love that Ingram is in our team, he’s an all purpose weapon!

  • A_Eme_O_Ere

    If Adams falls to the Steelers I’m going to throw up.

    • BrandonReisinger

       @A_Eme_O_Ere Did you though up?

    • A_Eme_O_Ere

      I just threw up.

  • dorourke2312

    When you put it in perspective of the best player available it’s a good pick.  This is a guy that has a higher overall rating than Hightower and Mercilus.

    • BrandonReisinger

       @dorourke2312 Yeah, he was just not someone that was on my radar.  After reading up on him a little bit I’m cool with this

  • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

    Spending some tome with my son… hope y’all are doing homework on this guy to get me good news

  • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

    And I still want lavonte david… please don’t tell me he is taken when I get back

  • BrandonReisinger

    Well there goes LMJ, I’m all in for Hillman now!!

    • A_Eme_O_Ere

       @BrandonReisinger Who hoo!

  • KennyRedman

    I think Aj is picking his defense by who can do the best backflip….first ingram, and now Reyes.

  • KennyRedman

    I think Reyes will be playing DE…..just a guess

    • A_Eme_O_Ere

       @KennyRedman That’s what AJ’s media wh__re tweeted

  • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

    after watching these vids… i remember looking this dude up before..kendall reyes is alright… so, have we figured out what other big dude can do a backlip???? need an o-lineman

  • A_Eme_O_Ere

    Are the Colts gonna have a defense?

  • BrandonReisinger

    It would be difficult to find a prospect with more experience against elite college competition than Taylor, a three-year starter at strong safety for LSU’s renowned defense. Taylor gained such respect from his Tigers teammates and coach Les Miles that he was given No. 18 as a senior, a new tradition within the program to honor character and leadership. Still, he flew under the radar in LSU’s secondary in 2011 thanks to Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu and likely top-10 pick Morris Claiborne. Those elite cornerbacks – and Patrick Peterson before them – certainly made Taylor’s life easier, rarely leaving him alone in coverage. As a result, his man-to-man skills are somewhat in doubt, although he was a cornerback in high school. In Baton Rouge, Taylor was more of a physical presence against the run, ranking third on the team with 71 tackles as a senior. His stock is somewhat hard to figure; some NFL teams might see him as an underrated player who was simply overshadowed in college, but others may conclude that he’s not quite the elite athlete some others at his position are. It’s true that he’s not the biggest or the fastest safety, but Taylor – whose brother Curtis was selected out of LSU by San Francisco in the seventh round in 2009 – is a hard-working, smart player who should be able to add depth to a defensive backfield quickly. He may be gone by the middle of the draft.
