i would think we gotta look at this guy at some point

Anttaj Hawthorne Grade: 3.9
Position: DT
Class: Sr
School: Wisconsin
Conference: Big Ten
Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 321
40 Time: 5.29
Grading System


BIO: All-Conference selection who started the past three seasons. Coming off a disappointing senior campaign in which he totaled 42/12/6. Posted career numbers of 75/20/4 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Explosive interior defender who attracts double teams in the middle of the field. Gets off the ball with a quick first step, keeps his pads low and effectively uses hand technique to get around blocks. Jolts blockers displaying power and pushes them off the ball. Drives up the field and quickly locates the action. Immediately changes direction and wraps up tackling.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top pursuit skills from the backside. Over-pursues the action in his attempt to get up the field. Improved his hand technique as a senior, yet still stands to protect himself better.

ANALYSIS: A nasty defender who creates a lot of havoc up the field when on his game, Hawthorne can be a dominant force that overpowers one-on-one blockers. Offers size and plays with leverage, which gives him possibilities in a variety of systems. Lack of speed and inability to pursue is a negative, but a late first-round pick who can produce in a conventional defensive scheme.

PROJECTION: Early Second Round

Would've like him last pic, but with Crap "Hattori" Hanzo sitting there, impossible to skip.

I can't believe Hawthorne and CJ Mosley are still on the board. Both were considered borderline 1st rounders just a few weeks ago. I would LOVE to get one of these guys to put the heat on Sims next season, and use as a safety valve if Sims leaves as a UFA this season.

But instead, we drafted Boomer freaking Grigsby :shake:

Didn't Hawthorne just get busted for smoking dope?

If the guy isn't smart enough to stay clean for the combine, I'm not interested.

I know Hawthorne has slipped because of his drug test, but why has Mosley slipped? He didn't fail a drug test as far as I know. Any guesses on why he was a 1st/2nd round pick a couple weeks ago and now might slip out of the 5th round?

Hawthorne is worth a gamble now. Do we all honestly think that NOBODY in the NFL smokes weed except the ones that get caught???? Come on. Im hoping for the squinty eyed hawethorne next.

Oakland probably just got the steal of the draft.

Well, im hoping for Browner, Shazor, or Mosley to fall to the Chiefs...Come on Carl, draft one of those guys!

LOL. The Raiders picked him. What a perfect fit.

He can get high with Sapp and reminisce about what pot smoking does for DTs paydays....
