I always get a little nervous when "scouts" won't put their name to a quote, but this caught my eye...
JR: Give me a couple of players that most people like me believe are first round picks that you think will slide.
Scout: Brian Price, the fat kid from UCLA. I’ll tell you what, Terrence Cody is in a lot better shape than that kid and he’s (Cody) comfortable with his size. Price will flash you the ability to get into the backfield, but watch him against good teams and he didn’t do sh**. I know a lot of people that think he’s going to be a big bust. Enough people that I think he’ll get humbled a little come draft day.
I always though Price was stud.
You always had to double team him but I will admit the NFL is whole different ball game. Scouts look at a number of different things.
Here is what the same "scout" said about Taylor Mays...
JR: What about Taylor Mays?
Scout: You want to talk about physical freaks, that’s your guy right there. There’s too much to like for him to fall, right or wrong. It won’t be us but someone will get him in the first (round).
Mays is a wild card.
He has so much talent but he has some questions too.
Just goes to show you that every one has an opinion....but it doesn't mean it is right.
