Welch is a lot more athletic than most people give him credit for. If you watch his videos, you see a kid who moves really well in space.

Based on 5 minutes of 'film' evaluation my 2 favorite players in this class are Spencer Williams and Shaun Beyer.

I was breaking down Alaric Jackson's film in great detail earlier w/Monster.

Neither one of us saw what all the hype was about. Looks average. Plays with a horribly high pad level. Doesn't finish his blocks. He seemed to rely solely on his size and didn't appear quick.

Jackson as a projection is what is exciting. 2 years of football experience. Great size. Plus athleticism. Continue his strength work and build his technique and he can be a monster.

Spencer Williams is a pancake machine. Woah. The baby face jokes are still good, but that kid might end up being pretty good

He'll look like a Marshal Yanda/Bryan Bulaga hybrid by the time he lifts that Outland.

Amani Jones first minute of film is pretty good. I believe he killed a kid around the 30 second mark. Helmet flew off and everything. Jones flat out trucked him to get to the ball carrier.

I so would have gotten more offers than UMKC if Huddl existed in my day...

Iowa never does great in recruiting but also never does horrible.

The one constant is Ferentz's ability to develop his players.

Hey Tom, you're the recruiting guru right? Thoughts on this class?

Well... they signed a LOT of defensive guys, after not signing as many before, so it seemed that was a focus.

Alrighty then.

That skill will come in handy on three yard outs
