Call me crazy, I don't think we take him if he's there. Herm is all about film and not the workouts (see Tamba), and that's the big knock on Gholston: his workouts are great and his film is iffy.

Plus, people seem to think he's better suited for a 3-4 for whatever reason.

It's possible, he'd be a monster in this defense.

Got this from ESPN about him...

It can get frustrating studying Gholston on film because he's inconsistent. There are times when he is flat-out dominant and there are other times that he will disappear.



If this is accurate, he'll fit in well here.

I hear you there.......

But my Michigan friend said that he is the only DE this year he saw lay an ass whipping on Jake Long and we need to replace a DE.

Well Herms number 1 thing is motivation so if you believe in Herm that means you believe he can turn Gholston into everything he can be because he has all the physical.

Personally Gholston to me will be very similar to what John Abraham was with the Jets under Herm.

Actually to rephrase I think he's more physically gifted then Abraham is but a similar style I should say.

Abraham was riddled with injuries early on, but he did make the pro bowl. I'll take that, considering you can't predict injuries.

He got 1 sack. Not exactly an a-- whipping. He disappeared against lesser talent. The question would be can we get him to play all the time. He's nonexistant in the 4th quarter. Maybe he should spend a little more of that gym time on cardio...

Oh other thing about him, I'm pretty sure he's dedicated to being in shape and not sitting in the bar...

What has he done to be compared to Bruce Smith!?! I guess you could say the same about any player that hasnt yet played a down in the NFL. Draft him on his potential to step up his game at the next level.:rolleyes:

I'm just taking a Michigan fans word on it, I assume Long didn't give up many sacks this year?

At 6'4 260, with a 4.65 forty, 37 reps in the banch, and 35 inch vertical it's worth a shot if there isn't a an OT with as much upside.

What about the ENTIRE home game against the Raiders?

That's just 2 games off the top of my head....

I'm just trying to understand why you wouldn't want a guy who is stronger than any other person in this draft, faster than every single person he'll line up against, and has produced at a high level against top notch competition.

This is what I say about Gholston, everyone always wants another Derrick Thomas here, athletically speaking this guy is as close as you are gonna get to another DT.

So what if you dont want to lay it on him, you still mentioned him in the same sentence with one of the best DE's to play the game because of his physical ability. Physical stats dont make you Bruce Smith.


Bruce wasnt a workout star who didnt back it up with his production.

Gholston obviously doesn't perform even though he put up 14 sacks and beat everyones man crush Jake Long....

Gholston is obviously a nobody when LSU's entire offensive gameplan was designed to take him out. They weren't worried about Laurenitis or Jenkins the entire gameplan was based on Gholston.

I hope he proves me wrong if we draft him, but I don't see Gholston as top-5 calibre. He'd be a risky pick. He's got all the measurables, but I'm not sold on him as a football player, as opposed to an athlete.

:spock:

If the Chiefs took Gholston at 5 even with Allen, it'd be a good pick. If they cloned Jared Allen, had him play both end spots and STILL took him, it'd be a good pick.

You can't play with only two ends. You need at least three, and they split time about evenly. Ask the Giants how unimportant Justin Tuck is to them.

You pay less money for a younger player with less risk, more upside, and you gain three picks out of the deal.

Stop with the Jr. Siavii, position-based, school of drafting.

There are tons of guys with big muscles, it doesnt make them Hall of famers. Theres a couple of big guys at my gym too, but it doesnt effect their ability to play football. Guys still have to be football players. Bruce was also a lot bigger if you want to talk physical. This guy aint Bruce Smith. C Long is universally considered better. Gholston is seen by most as a 3-4 guy. Not a cover 2 guy.

Again, he's talented, and could take the next step, but most of the hype is because of the combine and those pics at the top of the page. Every guy out there says the film doesnt back up the hype.

I don't know what DT's numbers were, but I see this guy as a half-step slower, but way stronger than DT. If people were convinced he could translate that talent into performance, he'd go #1 without any questions asked.

It must just be me but I don't love Chris Long, I don't think he'll bust but there is a legit chance that he'll only be a solid player that records is 7-10 sacks a year but never dominates.

I actually agree with Mecca, if we ended up with Gholston and Groves, that right there probably make a good draft. I think a rotation of Gholston/Groves/Hali could be pretty strong.... it would mask a lot of other defensive problems... just like the Giants big 3 pass rushers do.

And we'd still have so many picks left over, we would still have the chance to legitimately draft an average to above-average starting LT and RT.

Vernon Gholston is a prototypical Cover 2 end. He is undersized and fast as hell. He's as big as Dwight Freeney, stronger, and faster, and he was a better college player.

He also ran a 4.65 and had a vertical jump of 35 inches, ask the 260 lb guys at your gym if they can do that :)

He's a right defensive end which means stay at home on the run and pin your ears back and kill the QB on a pass, not really the toughest posistion to play outside of beating the man in front of you.

I guess we're just on opposite sides of the fence on this one. I think Long would be a better pick for a number of reasons. Character, intelligence, motor, etc. He also had just as many sacks as VG. Gholston is a Physical specimen who could be very good if he could be more consistent. I think most of the "experts" hold the same opinion. I just dont think he's a cover 2 guy either.

Thats my point. He doesnt anchor well against the run, and he takes plays and games off. Just being a physical specimen doesnt make him a great NFL player. You got to give it every play and in his college career he didnt do that consistantly speed and muscles or not.

remember what Herm said at the predraft presser, he also looks at guys who have intangibles that can dictate a game. There are reports that Gholston lack motiivation, thus II wouldn't select him if he was available due to that.Personally, I would pass on Gholston, because of the bust factor.

You guys don't think Ellis would be a great first pick? You can put Turk and Tamba on the outside with Ellis and Tank in the middle. Im excited about this draft. We have a lot of picks in the early rounds. I know alot of you dont like Herm's coaching style but the man has an eye for talent.

04-22-2008, 10:35 PM
Does he need to put up 25 sacks for you to be sold?It would probably help if he didn't go to Ohio State. It would take maybe 1000 sacks to get over my sheer level of loathing for that program.

Like I said, Gholston strikes me as more of a physical specimen than a football player. That doesn't mean he can't develop into one, but I see him as somebody who's going to have to work a great deal on his technique, his recognition of both blocking and plays and just his overall understanding of the game. He's not going to be able to depend solely on his athletic ability in the pros. And that's exactly what I think he did in college.

Which is why I think it would be a risk at 5. But, hey, I don't spend a billion hours going over every play he ran his entire college career, which is why it won't bother me a bit if the Chiefs take him. I'm not the kind of guy who can fool himself into thinking he's even in the same galaxy as a pro scouting staff when it comes to knowledge of these players, or projection of what they'll be down the road.

If anyone actually watched OSU football consistently they'd realize what an amazing disruption this guy can be..he can totally dominate the line,and he's just a freak...he's a super-human beastman ready to skullf*** the AFC West.

For a cover 2 Turk is more suited to be in the middle...

Gholston can be an elite pass rusher and I suspect he will be one, for a cover 2 I'm going to say that Gholston can rival and possibly be better than Simeon Rice was in Tampa.

I didnt say he had character flaws or that he isnt smart. Having grown up with a pro-bowl father his football IQ both on the field and in the locker room has been sited as one of his strong suites. Gholston may be a great guy, but those things arent touted as his strengths like they are for Long.

Ellis is the only one that I belive to be a sure fire Impact player,

I see Chris as a rock. Very good for a long time, but not a superstar.

Gholston is BOOOM, or bust. I would bet on boom, but he scares me.

BTW Herm's eye for talent seems to be more myth than anything. Maybe it's because it's what HE"S best at, but from the pure draft record he's far from the best at it.

I'm all about it. I'm already over JA, just thinking of the monstrous beast this guy is. If anyone actually watched OSU football consistently they'd realize what an amazing disruption this guy can be..he can totally dominate the line,and he's just a freak...he's a super-human beastman ready to skullf*** the AFC West.

Gholston is an athlete...but you really don't have to be much more than that when you're a DE on the right side..push the OT out of your way and run your big, strong ass as fast as you can into the QB's spine. Pretty simple..doubt he'll be dropping back in coverage much and making reads if we're playing him at DE. He's been a great football player at one of the premier programs in the nation, we'd be lucky to have him fall into our lap.

Mr. Flopnuts
04-22-2008, 10:45 PM
All this talk about not drafting a DE. Hmmph. I hope we take C. Long or Gholston in the first and can land Groves in the 2nd. We NEED to build both units from the line out. We NEED 3 DE's.

melbar
04-22-2008, 10:45 PM
How bout this scenario?
Say ATL is torn between Dorsey and Ryan. We offer our 3rd round pick to jump up to #3 and get Dorey if Long goes #2. They would still get Ryan at 5 since OAK has no need. We still need DE later, but we get a dominate player in the middle. Would Dorsey be a pick we could agree on?

Mr. Flopnuts
04-22-2008, 10:46 PM
Gholston, Ellis, or Long are fine by me.

I like the "playing HOFer daddy's team after being snubbed by them" story twice a year.
He would make them pay.

Dorsey is still the best hope that we have. He's the 2nd best prospect in this draft IMO. We can't take the best. We have LJ.

I think 5 years from now Gholston will be considered the best player from this draft as he's every year pro bowler that puts up 15+ sacks every year.

With Gholston the thing everyone needs to realize is he is strong and fast, he doesn't have 1 move. A big slow hulking OT, he'll run by him, a small nimble OT, he'll bull through him...and he can mix his moves with the elite OT's.

He got 1 sack. Not exactly an a-- whipping. He disappeared against lesser talent. The question would be can we get him to play all the time. He's nonexistant in the 4th quarter. Maybe he should spend a little more of that gym time on cardio...
Allen disappeared and got mauled during running plays also. Remember those first years when he bit on that damn Plummer bootleg every time?
But FTR I'd like Long instead of Gholston but if he's gone who else you going to take that has the value at #5? McFadden?

I would say DE for the 5th pick, and LT for the 17th pick in the first round....seems pretty reasonable at this point.

I would be happy with Long, Gholston, Ellis, or Dorsey. One of them is guaranteed to be there when we pick.

I think Dorsey and Ellis can be Warren Sapp type, since I started following football around 91/92 I have only seen two maybe three truly special DT's - Sapp, John Randle, and Tommie Harris. Big time pass rushers - DT, Rice, Merriman, Freeney are guys that remind me of Gholston. It would be a tough call for me between Dorsey/Ellis and Gholston.

Croyle costs next to nothing. If we took a QB in the 1st or 2nd and Croyle doesn't pan out he can be cut without a problem.

If he's good/above average but our new QB has more upside Croyle could be traded easy and we've bought low and sold high. And, for once, have a b/u plan.

And if I saw a QB out there that I thought was clearly better than Croyle, I'd say go for it. As it stands I'm not convinced. We have sacrificed the team's best player for this draft. I don't want to come away with a back-up QB in the first round.

Unless we add 2 probowl lineman before camp we're going to see at least 2 deep on the depth chart at QB anyway...

were you saying that about allen before we drafted him

No. I'd never heard of him. I pray we strike gold this year like we did with him. I also know it's very unlikely. Whereas, if we had actually kept him, the idea of striking gold with Jared Allen would be much more likely.

It's about time for me to go to bed now. Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow and find this is all just a horrible, horrible nightmare, and we haven't really just dumped our best player for picks.

Later all. Don't worry, I'll be back to wail and cry for months/years/decades to come.

Here's the way it is:

If Chris Williams is available at 17, we get the best pure pass blocking tackle in the draft. That's what LT's are designed to do. Even if we don't find another tackle in the draft (which is itself highly unlikely), we can move McIntosh to Rt. You don't need 5 HOF lineman to have a good offense. You people have such a hard-on for OL that it blinds you to the importance of other positions.

Say we get Williams at 17...we are set at both tackle positions. If the value is there in R2 for a guy like Carl Nicks or Cherilus we can take them and move McIntosh to guard. If not, we can still get a very very good DE, CB, or WR.

We have enough picks in the mid rounds that we can pluck interior lineman and Cover-2 style CBs. I don't think people understand that there is a very real possibility we could get 8 starters from this draft.

Do you know how huge that is??

Without reading through this thread (I know, my bad), the pictures of Gholston remind me of the pictures of Tank Tyler last year. Those pics showed a ripped Tyler and people were absolutely salivating at the prospect of getting him in the second round, if at all.

A season later and people were calling him a bust, even though he fell to the late third, which is absolutely ridiculous.

All I'm saying is that regardless of player lust and pictures, unless these choices turn out to be sure-fire, first year Pro-Bowl caliber players, people will be here bitching throughout next season and next off-season.

Allen was a player alot of fans here could relate to because he was a star player that was white and they felt was alot like them being a likeable country boy or some such.

It's really Grant Wistrom versus Derrick Thomas/ Bruce Smith

Gholston's report:

Has an outstanding motor...Does a solid job against the run...Has excellent range and is a terror in pursuit...Is able to get pressure off the edge or as a bull rusher...Good tackler...A hard worker with top intangibles...Very productive...Versatile and can play more than one position...Still has some upside.

He's smart enough to know when he has good assistants, but it's pretty damned telling that once said assistants leave, so does his success.

This wasn't a fluke scenario. He coached at NE before BB was Dc and had no success (even lost to him in the playoffs). Belichick comes aboard and viola. And yet when Belichick is with the Pats, Parcells can't win a single playoff game in a very very weak conference.

Vernon Gholston is a prototypical Cover 2 end. He is undersized and fast as hell. He's as big as Dwight Freeney, stronger, and faster, and he was a better college player.

Actually, comparing the two coming out of college, Gholston is a little bigger (2" taller, about the same weight) and is stronger than Freeney was, but Freeney was faster (4.48 compared to 4.65).

Ok so everyone here seems to be on the VG bandwagon. If Ryan Clady is a reach from 5 to 7 then WTF do you call 5 to 10? BPA right?

I am on the Matt Ryan bandwagon - you build your team around QB not DE. That is the most ridiculis thing I have heard. Croyle sucks. So we build a bad ass defense that SITS ON THE FIELD MOST OF THE GAME BECAUSE THE OFFENSE CAN'T DO SHIT? The Chiefs gave up what, 55 sacks last season? Oh lets draft on the defensive side of the ball first instead of rebuilding the offensive side - sorry guys that is stupid.

Fire away!

(Not you Dane, but) Black players can have good motors too. It's like I'm arguing against Larry Bird fans here...


It's really Grant Wistrom versus Derrick Thomas/ Bruce Smith

Gholston's report:

Has an outstanding motor...Does a solid job against the run...Has excellent range and is a terror in pursuit...Is able to get pressure off the edge or as a bull rusher...Good tackler...A hard worker with top intangibles...Very productive...Versatile and can play more than one position...Still has some upside.

WHAT?

Has an outstanding motor?

But...but...there are guys over at DraftPlanet that says he takes plays off? And that he's inconsistent?

Who to believe, who to believe.

As a teen, Chuck Norris and Gholston had sex with every nun in a convent tucked away in the hills of Tuscany. Nine months later the nuns gave birth to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only undefeated and untied team in professional football history.

That's an easy call, you'll never find a player at that position more athletic than Gholston..

Oh other thing about him, I'm pretty sure he's dedicated to being in shape and not sitting in the bar...


Them there muscles came from roids and Budweiser. What are you talkin about.
