Last year around this time there was this tall, athletic guy. He didn't have as much experience as people wanted. He had a lot of talent though and he had a lot of buzz coming out of the senior bowl and the combine. His name was Joe Flacco. Some people thought because of how raw he was and inexperienced he would go 2nd or 3rd round.I predicted then that he would probably creep into the 1st round which is what he did. Connor Barwin is this year's Joe Flacco. A former tight end who converted to de his final year he ended leading the Big East in sacks. His numbers included 14½ tackles for loss, 11 sacks and six pass breakups. That's in his first season on defense. At the combine he ran a 4.66. At his pro day he got his time down to 4.48 and a 2nd try at 4.52. He is fast, athletic and can play tight end or lb in the 3-4. He also could probably play de in the 4-3 in addition to being a former college basketball player. This guy just screams athletic talent. Because of his versatility he's being compared to Mike Vrabel. Now the trifecta is definitely interested in him. They talked to him at the combine, I believe they went to his pro-day and I know they scheduled a private workout with him. Simon Clancy who writes for the sun-sentinel and who many know as our beloved draftnik Boomer is very big on Connor. I think this guy is a first round talent. Sports Illustrated agrees. I hope that if he is available at 25 that we don't hesitate to take him. He will not be there in the 2nd round. Here is the link to the Sports Illustrated article. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/football/nfl/03/20/riser.sliders/ Here is the link to Boomer's interview with Connor Barwin. http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/spo...log/2009/02/london_calling_draft_winds_5.html I would feel very comfortable taking him at 25. And if we don't take him and he drops to the 2nd round it'd be insane to not get him. Whichever teams gets him is getting a hell of a player. Anyway those are my thoughts on the matter. Comment away.
