Marvin McNutt 2012 NFL Draft

Could this former QB be the Patriots next WR?

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

Day One and Day Two of the 2012 NFL Draft certainly didn’t disappoint if you were looking for some drama in the Patriots war room. Overall, I think the Patriots have put themselves in wonderful position for some added talent and depth on defense in 2012.

How many picks will they make on day three? What positions will they target? Will any Patriots players get traded? Discuss.

2012 Senior Bowl: Marvin McNutt

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Marvin McNutt (WR, Iowa) has certainly come a long way since being a backup quarterback to now Kansas City Chief Ricky Stanzi.

He talked with the NEPD writer Doug Kyed about the little things, the best cornerback he has faced all year, and talked about how he might time in the 40-yard dash.

McNutt is currently our #8 wide receiver.

Senior Bowl Day 3: North Offense Report

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Loyko

Day 3 of North Practice is in the books, today I focused mostly on the Offensive Players, while Doug watched the defense. Here are my practice notes, with interviews to follow later today.

VISIT THE SENIOR BOWL HQ

Cal WR Marvin Jones had another very good practice. He runs really crisps routes and gets in and out of his breaks just as good as anyone down here. What has really impressed me with him is his hands. He catches everything out in front of his body and doesn’t let the ball get into him. He was lined up at the slot position primarily.

I was impressed with how physical and competitive he was in run blocking drills. Jones really attacked the blocker and deliver a good pop. This is a kid who was overshadowed by uber-recruit Keenan Allen at Cal, but someone whose stock is rising.

Iowa WR Marvin McNutt continues to be solid in all aspects of his game. He runs nice routes and can change directions pretty well for a taller WR. Although he struggled a little bit with run blocking he is someone who can make big plays. He is a top 10 WR on my board.

Ohio St. WR DeVier Posey had a pretty good practice session today. What he does better than any of the other WR is once he catches the ball he turns it up and is gone in one motion.

Posey will not run by anyone or burn them with his speed but he has been steady the last couple of days. Although he is not overly fast, he has exhibited pretty good quickness and I like his ability to run intermediate route through the middle of a zone.

Over the course of the week I have established that I am not a Chris Polk guy. I haven’t seen him do anything really special. I wasn’t impressed with the way he looked at the weigh-in compared to other backs and for someone who was generating some first round buzz coming into the week, I just haven’t seen it.

I have been much more impressed with Boise State RB Doug Martin and to a lesser extent Ohio State RB Boom Herron. Martin is built rock solid an runs hard all the time. He is so quick to and through the hole he is not someone who will generate a lot of negative plays.

I have been a Boom Herron fan for a little while and I really liked what I saw today from him. He runs hard and stays low to the ground. He is able to make cuts without losing much speed. He has been running hard whenever he gets the chance and is tough to bring down with one tackler.

I was able to get a very good look at offensive linemen today going through drills. I liked what I saw from Mike Brewster, Senio Kelemete, and Kelechi Osemele in terms strength and the pop they deliver at the point of impact.

Kevin Zeitler for my money is the most fundamentally sound offensive lineman down here, he keeps such a good base and battles on every play. Mike Brewster did seem to struggle a little bit with shotgun snaps and that will be something to keep an eye on as the week goes forward.

An under the radar offensive lineman that I have been impressed with so far in Utah OG Tony Bergstrom. He has played very well. He battles, uses his hands and arms very well. He has actually been getting starting reps on the North side.

Cal (PA) OG Rishaw Johnson looked a little out of shape, but he seemed to adjust as the practice went on. He was getting reps at Center and told me it’s the first time he played center since early in his Ole Miss career.

QB wise I am not really impressed with any of the North guys. It’s pretty clear that Kirk Cousins is the best of the bunch in terms of arm, accuracy and NFL readiness.

Kellen Moore has really struggled with his accuracy and simply does not have a strong enough arm to make some of the throws at the next level.

Russell Wilson fumbled a couple snaps today and hasn’t been awful, but he hasn’t exactly stood out either.

I was able to get a look at some of the DBs during 7 on 7 and I thought BC CB Donnie Fletcher had a really good day. He was playing physical all day long and really attacked the line of scrimmage in run support. He was able to shed which every WR tried to block him. Alfonzo Dennard has had a rough week by many standards however I thought today was his best day. The North coaches have him playing the Nickel corner which is new to him and he got better today. Dennard is going to have to go to the right system in order to excel, I just don’t see how he goes in the first round anymore.

A WR who I wasn’t terribly impressed with today was Arizona St. WR Gerrell Robinson. He is not a very smooth routh runner, it seems like there is a lot going on when he is running his routes. His arms and head are moving all over the place and he also dropped a few balls. App St. WR Brian Quick had a much better day than yesterday and seems to be adjusting to the level of competition. North Carolina State WR TJ Graham is small and elusive. He is a slot WR who needs to add a little bulk. He dropped a couple passes today and fumbled two punts yesterday. Some scouts really like him, but I am still not sure.

Who was talking to who after practice:
Raiders and Eagles-Vinny Curry
Jets-Jemell Fleming
Colts-Brian Linthicum

*I will have alot more observations from this afternoon’s South Practice.
