Games watched: vs Clemson (quality tape), vs TCU, vs Tennesse


Mock Draftable chart: http://mockdraftable.com/player/4886/


The Good: 


Quick-twitch athlete. Doesn't measure well, but plays faster because of explosion and reaction time. 


Very nice swim move here:

  ex. [Destroys the center with this swim move] http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=BouncySereneAdouri


Uses explosion and leverage to penetrate gaps.

Absolutely fantastic at shedding blocks in this game.

  ex. http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=PotableAcademicHammerheadshark


Does a great job at stacking the offensive lineman and creating an impenetrable wall. Doesn't get moved off of his spot. 


Very rare that you see this good a pass rusher from the NT spot. 


Doesn't get the pressure here, but does a nice job of using his hands and splitting a double-team to get into the backfield:

Absolutely no regard for human life on this bullrush:

  ex. http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=AngelicRecklessCurlew

This play is more about leverage than it is about power (i have no idea what the RB was thinking not picking up the LB). Still a very good play though.

  ex. [another angle] http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=BewitchedPlainAnnelid


Doesn't effect the play here, but again showing off that strength and athleticism:

  ex. http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=EvergreenIlliterateAnemoneshrimp


If you want to see Phillips' ceiling, watch the Clemson game. I can really convey how dominant he was. It was almost JJ Watt-esque. 


Very good spin move.

  ex. http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=ContentFlimsyBedlingtonterrier


In other games I question his motor, but he must have had something to prove against Clemson. Look at him run down the field chasing a WR about 30 yards (and keeping pace):

 ex.  http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=257249&gif=CandidSevereBobcat




The Bad:


Gets turned around a few times (mostly attempting spin moves) and loses his leverage leading to him getting taken out of plays. 


Often times plays too tall and loses leverage. 


Questions about his motor and conditioning. A player who should probably play about 25-20 snaps a game or else he loses his effectiveness. Seems content with being blocked at points. 


Clemson games was his only real "dominant" game available. Makes me question if he was just capitalizing off of a horrible center. 


Absolutely dominated by the TCU center. Apparently that kid is going to be a high round pick in his draft. Keep an eye out for him. He walked Phillips up the field all game. 




Phillips is a very interesting player. At times he completely dominates and at others he just look happy to be there. His game vs Clemson shows what he can bring to the table as a pass rusher and when he gives 100% effort. He played NT in college and I wouldn't have a problem with him being a 0-tech in the pros, but if I was the team who picked him, I'd give him ample opportunities to rush from the 3-tech spot. 


Projected Round: 1st

NFL Comparison: More athletic Terrance Knighton, Washington

First lesson of Scouting: Don't watch tape off highlights.. It shows what they can do not what they usually do.


already know that

    • The person who lost it is you.   You posted,  IN THIS THREAD,  that we were bottom-5.   Turns out,  we're not.   We're bottom 10.   And, as I noted,  only you would complain about throwing 33 times a game.      Once again,  you demonstrate how little you know about football.    You try to twist facts to make your point.   Your incorrect point.   Funny how you again use the J'Ville game when you think it helps you make a point.   Because the previous day you told me NOT to use because it was "irrelevant".   Your word,  not mine.   So, it's irrelevent when I make a point with it,  but it's perfectly fine when you try to use it.   How classicly YOU!   Don't look now,  but I'm running circles around your argument.   Now,  not only aren't stats your friend,  but words aren't your friend either.  This just keeps getting worse for you.   The more you post about this,  the worse it gets for you.   But, by all means, keep doubling down on a losing hand.  You have a lot of experience doing that.    Carry on!  
    • How Rivers did week 1 is irrelevant?    Are you certifiable?    You've been complaining about it ever since.    Throwing 46 times wasn't the game plan.   But you didn't seem to notice that against that terrible run defense we couldn't manage to gain 90 yards.   And we threw for nearly 400.    So you demonstrate your lack of understanding of football.   The game plan wasn't working,  so we went with what WAS WORKING.    The passing game.   And we backed off the running game.     And by the way,  one of the reasons why the running game wasn't working was the lack of the pre-season.     But, that's just you being you!    LOL!!  
    • Really?  That's the best you got?   A childish insult that sounds like it came from a 12 year old?   That's the best you got?   In my more than 8 years here, I've never met someone more afraid of writing words than you.   They're like your kryptonite.   And stop trying to be the school-yard bully telling me what to do and not to do.   That's not going to work either.   Your such a coward running as far away from any fight you think you can't win.   Not changing anything?    That's what you do to any topic that you can't win.   Happens all the time.   Which is why I write about it all the time.    This is not new territory.   So, the next time you want to insult me,  do yourself a favor,  use one of your Life Lines!   Try the Phone-a-Friend feature and ask someone else for a better insult than "wise old lady".    If that's the best you got,  well,  It's just pitiful.   Good Luck.
