Washington Redskins scouts have been really busy this season

Postby drocksthaparty » Mon Jan 09, 2012 9:28 pm

Skins have been doing their due diligence this year when scouting, they have been following some small school guys pretty hard. They have been looking at guys like Adrian Hamilton hard, and Ryan Davis. Here is a list of guys that I speak too that have all had interviews with their scouts so far.

They have been scouting Marquette King, Punter of Fort Valley State who had a few huge punts this year, one for 80 against Bethune Cookman who blasted this punt, it was amazing, didn't not bounce, 80 yard missle in the air.

I have had the pleasure to write articles on all the guys that the team has been interested in so far from the small schools and thought I would give you guys a chance to read up on some of the guys, here are the articles I have wrote on all of them

Marquette King, P, Fort Valley State - 60 punts averaging 43.3 yards and the NCAA record for D-2 with an 80 yard missle

http://www.optimumsc...lley-state.html

Adrian Hamilton, DE, Prairie View A&M - 20.5 sacks led the SWAC and broke Robert Mathis record, true DE in 4-3

http://www.optimumsc...e-view-aam.html

Ryan Davis, DE, Bethune- Cookman - Led the MEAC in sacks and was named HBCU MVP for 2.5 sacks at the HBCU Bowl

http://www.optimumsc...ne-cookman.html

Other Small school articles

Rico Wallace, WR Shenandoah University - 6'3, 210 pound WR who can catch away from his body, Joe Jacoby says he is like Art Monk, Jacoby is his coach at Shenandoah

http://www.optimumscouting.com/scout-s- ... ndoah.html

Casey Therriault, QB Jackson State - Big Armed QB, who had to overcome a ton to get to this level.

http://www.optimumscouting.com/scout-s- ... state.html

Thomas Mayo, WR, Cal (PA) - D2 all time leading reciever

http://www.optimumscouting.com/draft/ar ... ia-pa.html

Stanley Porter DE & Charles Deas NT, Shaw University - Both were transfers to Shaw and both took the HBCU by storm this year.

http://www.optimumscouting.com/draft/ar ... -shaw.html

Ryan Steed CB, Furman - known as the second best CB coming out this draft from a small school behind Janoris Jenkins of North Alabama.

http://www.optimumscouting.com/draft/ar ... urman.html

Jared Green, WR, Southern - the son of HOF Darrell Green, this kid is a burner, he ran a 4.3 at the HBCU Bowl, a burner for real

http://www.optimumscouting.com/draft/ar ... thern.html

Gino Gradkowski, OG, Delaware - Bruce Gradkowski's kid brother, but is not a little man, a very good blue collar blocker.

The greens were very happy to do the article, they knew that they would be going against the grain by transferring to Southern, but it didn't stop them. Jared the son is said to be faster than Darrell

I always like to see our scouts looking at small school guys -- there are some real diamonds in the rough out there.

Not too sure about that QB though. He didn't make grades to receive a scholly from MSU and then got into a bar fight and was thrown in jail. Intelligence and good decision-making are the cornerstones to being a good NFL QB. While I understand there may have been extenuating circumstances, he shouldn't have placed himself in that position in the first place -- that, in and of itself, is a decision right there.

There have been a good number of small school guys make it in the NFL -- after all our best player went to John Carroll.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Good job.

Just in case somebody in this board wishes to know:

Optimum Scouting is a third party scouting service that works with professional teams, leagues, agents, and others in the professional football area to aid in their prospect research and evaluation. Our scouting staff is comprised of trained, experienced scouts.

All of them have extensive education and training in scouting and/or have worked with professional organizations in some capacity in their history as a scout or scouting consultant. Optimum Scouting was founded five years ago by myself (Eric Galko) and has grown substantially since then.


Have you provided advice to the Skins or Bruce Allen or Mike Shanahan previously?

You guys have been great on this board, I love the feedback.

Here is a guy you might want to look at. The Skins have not looked at him yet, but they will be at the Battle of Florida

Late rounder, 6th or 7th.

Too many holes for us.

We like to think that we are pretty darned smart football fans... and, we appreciate a thoughtful and insightful contributor.

Unless someone has him specifically eyeballed, likely will be a UFA... The most likely draft scenario would be: DS: "Mike, I love what you've been doing... you know... I've been pretty quiet so far... could I ask for something... yada, yada..."
MS: "Ummmmm..."

Too many holes... Qb, OL and WR being the biggest right? Maybe a CB and some depth for safety but WR is a pretty high priority, with kid who's dad is a redskins legend and happens to be a FAST WR. Something we lack at that position.
