Jordan Phillips, DT, Oklahoma

Arik Armstead, DT, Oregon




Games watched: vs Florida, vs Louisville


The Good: 


Does a good job stacking an anchoring in run plays. Great power at the point-of-attack. 


Does a good job of blowing up run plays.

Uses long arms to control offensive lineman on running downs. 


Good play recognition. Locates the ball and sheds blockers. 

  ex. http://www.draftbreakdown.com/gif-embed/?clip=254296&gif=EvenBrokenBarnswallow


Commands double-teams almost every play. 


Doesn't wear down as fast as some of the other big guys in this class.


A lot quicker than you would think. 


Flashes pass rush ability, though it's nowhere near consistent.

Explodes off of the snap. 


The Bad: 


Not a pass rush threat. He's your prototypical run-stuffing 1-tech. Doesn't posses pass rush moves, though he flashes. 


Can still get washed out by double-teams. 


Better hand usage would go a long way to fixing the above.


Susceptible to cut and trap blocks. 




Goldman is a powerful run-defender with the upside to possibly be a viable pass rushing threat from the NT position. He uses size, power, and leverage to consistently blow up run plays up the middle. Goldman is a day one starter at 1-tech.


Projected Round: 1st

NFL Comparison: Damon Harrison, NYJ

Brown would be a stud. He is a nosr who is a legit pass rushing threat.

He is a run stuffer to me first...with some additional pass rushing skills.  If Art Jones is health, we would have 2 Art Jones's  :)  Very similar in commanding double teams.  I agree with you!!

Of course, as any nose should be. But it's something you don't get with an Eddie Goldman.

I like Brown a whole lot.  I'd be real satisfied if we picked him up.

    • 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.
