#88 DE Quentin Williams
-Lining up at DE in sub-packages.
-Stoned on speed rush by Jeff Allen, but comes off it to sack QB as he tries to escape.
-Stayed active and didn’t quit on the play.
-Tries bullrush on LT, not nearly enough power.
-Great balance, fights through trash and tracks ball down the line, makes solid tackle.
-Unable to use hands against Allen, getting engulfed.
-Able to get the corner against RT, chases QB down five yards down the field.
-Pursues down the line, good motor.
Overview: Didn’t see a ton of playing time, but was able to make an impact with his motor. With Vince Browne gone in 2012, we should see some more of Williams, who projects as a developmental DE/OLB type in the NFL.
#70 OT Patrick Ward
-Lined up at right tackle.
-Bulled over by Buchanan, got way too high and gave up his midsection.
-Tough time locking out on DE, hands getting swatted down.
-Chips DE and gets enough of LB to take him out of the play.
-Able to mirror Buchanan on speed rush, a rarity.
-Perfect cut block on screen pass.
-Locks out on Brown, doesn’t let him disengage.
-Doesn’t have enough strength to anchor against strong bull rush.
Overview: Over-powered and out-classed by Buchanan and Mercilus all day. Not strong enough or quick enough to stay with either of them. Ward didn’t look like anything more than a developmental tackle.
#72 OG Brian Mulroe
-Lined up at left guard.
-Picks up stunt, pushes Mercilus out of the play.
-Has some strength, effective combo blocker.
-Gets a bit off balance, knocked to the ground.
-Finishes Spence off with some help from the LT.
-Good initial positioning on 2nd level, but lets LB disengage and make play.
Overview: Mulroe looked pretty good at times, getting some good push when working in combinations. He looks like he could develop into a backup guard at the next level.
