Click on the little cam on the side next to his name. About 3 minutes worth of game footage. Pretty good. He has a lethal stick on Gary Russell of Minnesota in one of the clips.

Yeah, I was hoping someone would make a .gif of that particular hit, just to see it.

I think this guy might have killed people on the field with some of those hits. Did anyone have the scene "The Longest Yard" in their head when that big dude said "I think I broke his f*ckin neck"

Very nice. BTW, all of our first 3 picks have video on this site.

He looks like an enforcer. Someone who will hit you if you go over the middle, and install a little bit of fear.

We need a guy that can ****in make a person think twice about going over the middle or catching the damn ball. We could probably teach him to cover better yadda yadda, i like the pick.

He does look like an enforcer. He's not gonna be able to do that near as much in the NFL, so I hope he learns to rely on those arm tackles a bit more.

I see what Herm is doing and I like it. A possible enforcer type at saftey.

With Hali I see hustle. The story is great, everything I've heard out of this guy's mouth is either inspirational or exciting. Hustle, again, doubleteamed, he just keeps going. The other thing I noticed was that he takes great angles. Always putting himself in good position. With Allen and Hali on opposite sides we've got a decent pass rush.

With Croyle I see our future QB. Plain and simple, excellent decision making and a rocket of an arm. From the video he was doing an amazing job of hitting the recievers right where they need it. Not breaking stride, away from defenders, down across the middle. Perfect. I'm excited about watching him develop!

Kinda reminds me of Roy Williams when it comes to hitting. This pick is warming up to me, though I still think we could have gotten him in the 3rd round but then Croyle would have been gone after that.

This guy can hit, and seems to play faster than his 40time indicated. Hopefully the guy can cover well because the safeties we have now are SLOW and with the CB's we have despite Surtain, and running the cover2 scheme, were gonna need all of the safety help we can get.

MooooAre you serious? Arm tackling is not what you want. You want to put your shoulder in on the person you are trying to tackle.

He displayed great wrap-up tackling in the vid.

Although I generally agree with your concern, Mr. Moooo, I believe that "arm tackling" should be outlawed at River Falls this year.

ENFORCER!

I think he will see the field early and often next season.

My mistake, I meant "arms while tackling." (3:00 a.m. will do that) I was just saying that half those shouldercharges wouldn't work in the NFL. I've heard he tends to go for those a bit more than would be liked. But if he was perfect, he wouldn't be in the second round, and I'll take a guy who's problem is too much intensity any day.

outstanding...i'm starting to warm up to this pick.

It scares me with him leaving his feet laying the thunder down like that.... but I think he'll learn fairly quickly what he can get away with in the NFL.....

Damn. A defense that likes to hit, what a concept. Bernie Pollard looks to be the real deal and I'm glad we picked him up. At the time, I was scratching my head, especially with Richard Marshall still available in the second round, but now I'm seeing the big picture. Looks like we are starting to get players who enjoy hitting.

Our other safety is shown as well, and I think it's easy to see why one went in the second and the other in the 7th. I also loved the way Brodie Croyle looked and the receivers never broke stride to catch the ball. I'm concerned about Hali's size against monster tackles in the NFL, but other than that I'm pumped...bring on football season!

looks more like Steve Atwater than Roy Williams to me....http://members.fortunecity.com/rabid_fan/27atwater1.jpg

If he plays like Atwater, I'll die a happy man!

Thanks.

This really helps with my football withdrawl that has been getting worse and worse.

I wanna see what this guy does in the NFL. It's nice to see people come to a dead stop after getting hit by the safety.
