Aaron Aloysius

Aaron began closely following the draft in 2005. Since then, he’s overcome an Al Davis-like obsession with workout numbers, instead focusing on the qualities and traits visible on prospects’ tape.

New Prospect Video: Three Weeks of Justin Houston

Georgia pass rusher Justin Houston had a breakout junior season, notching 11 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss. He was very productive in the Bulldogs’ new 3-4 defense, leading many to conclude that he’ll soon be a disruptive 3-4 outside backer in the big leagues.

 

However, the tape shows that Houston may need more development before he’ll be effective in that role.

Though Houston began the transition to playing with his hand up, he looked much more comfortable and explosive playing with his hand in the dirt. From a three-point stance, Houston displays an excellent first step; from a two-point, he’s less capable of running the arc around offensive tackles. His limited repertoire of rush moves further amplifies the issue.

 

As a result, Houston may be more effective early on as a nickel rusher. In fact, a 4-3 team could be interested in having him (read more…)

Make Me Bad? Allen Bailey and the Hurricanes’ Coaching Staff

Make Me Bad? Allen Bailey and the Hurricanes’ Coaching Staff

Last August, I wrote an article on Allen Bailey, detailing my concerns about certain weaknesses in his game. For one, the big physical freak was very slow off the snap, routinely being the last guy on the line to get out of his stance.

 

Also, Bailey struggled to threaten the edge as a pass rusher, so he was forced to rely heavily on his bull rush. With his physical strength, Bailey managed to walk back offensive linemen, but he lacked the quick hands to disengage in time to get to the quarterback. As a result, he was nothing more than an average pass rusher.

 

You can see some of Bailey’s issues in this ’09 clip of him against Wake Forest. While impressive when he had an open lane to crush the QB, Bailey’s poor hand play also led to many lost opportunities.

Tale of the Tape: Phil Taylor vs Oklahoma

February 3, 2011

Like previous Tale of the Tape subject Titus Young, Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor boosted his stock with an impressive Senior Bowl week. The mammoth 6’3″, 337-pound prospect exhibited plenty of strength and a surprising amount of athleticism. Some even have speculated that those impressive physical tools could push Taylor all the way up to the first round.

 

Taylor’s recent stock surge is quite an accomplishment for a player who once appeared to be on the way to wrecking his football career. He started his college career at Penn State, but off the field issues led to his dismissal from the team. Taylor transferred to Baylor but had an underwhelming ’09 season, appearing out of shape and displaying inconsistent technique.

 

However, Taylor recommitted himself to developing his game last summer, dropping close to twenty pounds of excess weight. Also, he became a better overall football (read more…)
