Any Penn State Fans?


Recommended Posts

Two guys I've been paying close attention to so far in the early college season are Derek Moye WR and Devon Still DT. Currently I think Still is projected as a 3rd round pick and Moye a 7th round pick.

Devon Still: I want to like this guy but I'm having trouble doing so. When he gives his full effort he always seems to make a big play. However, from what I've seen he clearly doesn't give his full effort on every play. In fact I would argue that he gives up on plays more than half the time. IMO this comes down to desire and motivation and I just don't know that this can be corrected by coaching. I mean the guy is a SR so if he has any desire to play in the pros you would think this would be the year he gives his full effort in order to try to increase his draft stock but I'm just not seeing it. I could see if there were perhaps a lingering issue that would be hindering his play. Just wondering if anyone else has seen the same thing.

Derek Moye: Man, right now he's projected as a 7th rounder and I just don't get it. Either this next draft class is stacked at WR or I'm missing something because this guy seems like the real deal. He's big at 6'4" and 210 lbs. From what I've seen he runs nice routes, has at least good hands if not great and from what I've seen is a pretty good blocker on runs and screens. He's also one of their punt returners and the returns I've watched him take he's had nice returns. He may not have elite speed..his avg 40 time is 4.54. From what I've been watching, he looks like he could be an absolute steal in the 7th round if he can make the transition to the pros. Anyone else been paying attention to him and feel the same way and if not I'd be very interested in hearing critiques.

I like Moye a lot, especially at the 7th round.

I tell ya I watched the Penn State/Temple game and I like him a lot too. I'm still trying to figure out what the knocks on him are to push him down to the 7th round. I'm wondering if part of it might be his size. He could probably put on about 5 more lbs. In the first half he was targetted 6 times which resulted in 4 completions. One of the incompletions was a catchable ball....it would have been a difficult catch though. The other he made a nice catch until the CB got his hand on the ball and knocked it down. That's why I'm thinking maybe putting on another 5 lbs or so would help his strength to be able to hold onto that ball.

There was also at least one or two specific times I saw him struggle to get off of bump and run coverage. There were definitely other times when he did though.

If those are the only complaints then I take him in a heartbeat in the 7th round.

    • It’s one practice.    One.    And from one practice you’ve extrapolated that this will be a problem all season long and we’ll miss the playoffs.    All from one practice.    I think you’re reading way too much into way too little.   Is it possible you’re right?  Sure. But it’s not likely.       OL play is typically slow to come around.   It takes time to gel.    Whatever the line is today, it should get better over time.    It started slow last year when injuries hit 4 of our 5 starting lineman.  But eventually the line gelled and Taylor ran for 1800 yards.   Remember?    This year we have two new starters on the line.   It’s going to take time.  Give it time.  
    • Im not a big fan of responding to a post with a mountain if stats, but these are pretty simple and straight forward.   Matt Ryan has 100 completions in 12 practices of 11 on 11 drills.   Thus doesn’t include 7 on 7 or any other drills, just 11 on 11.    Here’s how the receptions breakdown:   1.   Pittman    30 2.  Granson   14 3.  MAC.         13 4.  Taylor.        11 5.   Hines.       10 6.   Campbell.  8 7.    Pierce.       5 8.   Dulin.         4 9.   Ogletree.   3 10.  Patmon.    1 11.  Coutee.     1   That's 100 receptions.   Campbell is right in the middle of the group.   And 4 of the 5 WRs with fewer receptions are behind him.  PC is NOT having a quiet camp.   This is misinformation and bad analysis.   About 10 days ago fans here were predicting Granson wouldn’t make the 53.   How does that look now?    Could PC get cut?   Sure.  But it’s a long shot.  
    • Classy reaction from the kid. Best of luck in your recovery!
    • It’s his contract year and the Colts need all the WRs they can get.  You are right they aren’t going to move him.  If he doesn’t work out this year they will just simply let him walk at the end of the season.
    • While it’s good to hear I think this would only really be news if they didn’t dominate the Lions defense.
