The dude is a flake sounds like. Eccentric and has interests outside football that make pros wonder if he's actually dedicated to the game of football or not. Coming off a labrum injury with surgery in his shoulder. His grades on football were all over the place with PFF rave review and others having him a 2nd rounder at best. Some say he is too inconsistent and has difficulty with the run game but was right up there with pass rushing DT's in this draft. Bolts need a major run stuffer and it sounds like this guy is not. Hope the stananoses failed and end up with a zero in this guy lolz. It sounds like he decided to put out in 2018 so he could score as high a draft spot as possible within his limitation in the draft, and once he gets his contract.....ruh roh. Hope that's the case. Hope he turns out to be the DT equivalent of the LT Big Lazy LOLZ.Chargers...Notre Dame player...some injuries.....who could ever seen this coming?
Suspended for Fiesta Bowl as a freshman due to unspecified violation of team rules. In 2016 went on a Twitter rampage in which he indirectly suggested fired LSU coach Les Miles should replace Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly. In 2016 vs USC kicked one Trojan player in the head and stomped on another's leg. Has other loves and passions outside of football that may concern teams (I don't care). Work ethic and effort haven't always been ideal, but huge growth over past two seasons.
The Jerry Tillery that took the field in 2018 was light years beyond the player that suit up for the Irish the seasons prior, showing improvement in key areas like his pass rush plan, hand usage and pad level at the point of attack. He's not perfect, as there are a couple reps every game that he takes the worst of an exchange in the run game, but he's certainly not a liability in run defense, and his pass rush ability makes him a potential high-impact interior defensive lineman in the NFL.
Tillery's best spot will be in the B-gap of an attacking defense, but he may need a little time before he becomes an every down player. He's developed quickly over the past two years however, and should contribute in a rotation early on, especially on long and late downs.
Round Grade: 2nd
you KNOW the satanos were praying the DT from Clemson would slide to them and had to settle for this kid. They didn't luck out like last year. And only stupid Gruden made it possible for them to get James. If the Raiders had selected James last year they wouldn't have needed to draft a S in the first round this year, or could have paired him with the kid they took for a terrific duo at S. Gruden is nuts. I am also of the opinion the Raiders drafted too much for need and not BPA again. We'll see, I hope the guys they picked are ballers and make that team great ASAP. I just have my doubts until Gruden proves he can put together a A plus draft. BTW, when the Raiders selected all thru the first round there was the projected top 10 OT from UF still available. Not sure why that guy slid and where he went but imagine if they'd taken him this year instead of the OT from UCLA last year and taken James last year. I don't get their whole philosophy. I think the abrupt transition form McKenzie to Mayock hurt them....I bet Mayock would not have let James get away last year. Certainly he would not have taken the T from UCLA. Unless of course Gruden is overruling everyone.Tillery is a great kid and has a high motor and good IQ. Yes he’s not much of a run stuffer but it’s not due to work ethic. Wish him well and hope he eventually ends up in another team.
Dunno.....that guy was another way overrated 2nd rounder from Telesco. What a stupid pick. And he traded UP to try to get him LOLOLOLOL. All they had to do was see how ND got their asses handed to them by the SEC that year and how ineffective Teo was in that game. But NOOOO. He was just a mediocre average LB. He could play in the NFL but never created anything special. He'll be long forgotten way before he's ever remembered. That was almost, but not quite, as stupid as aj smith trading up to get Jacob Hester LOLOLOLOLOL. Boy that was a doozy. I remember aj smith raving about his visit to LSU and talking with Les Myles about Jacob Hester....he was sure he had found the promised player who would make him take his place in the ranks of genius GM's. Ha ha ha ha ha. What a jokester smith was once he became GM and forgot to scout properly.So I see Manti Te’o is a free agent. He gonna land somewhere or is he done?
Good question. I think that was brought up on 97.3 the other aft when I was listening and there were 2 prospects that would be taken in round 5 and I think lower, but not sure. maybe you oughta start an Aztec draft thread......am sure also there will be UDFA's taken out of SDSU.So what Aztecs got drafted?
Our tight end must have gone before round 5. Dude was good.Good question. I think that was brought up on 97.3 the other aft when I was listening and there were 2 prospects that would be taken in round 5 and I think lower, but not sure. maybe you oughta start an Aztec draft thread......am sure also there will be UDFA's taken out of SDSU.
