Mike Catapano reminds me of Jared Allen.
 
Against the inferior competition of the Ivy League, sure (albeit an Ivy League where he racked up 12 sacks and was the league's DPOTY), but nonetheless.

Dismissing him because of his league would fit in with conventional wisdom, but we know that the best college passrushers are almost always (a.) prolific in their last year, (b.) have a good weight/speed/strength combo, and (c.) have a good wingspan, preferably 33" or longer.

Catapano was prolific last year with 12 sacks. 6'4", 271 lbs with 4.75 speed -- very nice. 33 reps, ridiculous. 33 3/4" arm length, more than adequate.

Plays a lot like Jared Allen. Not a lot of technique (was Allen ever a technique guy), total relentless mean streak. Combine that with his measurables, and we could be doing alright here.

Sigh.

Thing is, I'm not sure he's a scheme fit.

He plays with both hands on the ground. Zero experience standing straight up.

Seems like somebody Reid would have drafted when he was running the Wide 9 in Philly.

Not nearly as quick off the snap

You should make a Direckshun repository thread where you post all this shit to.

Was he a long snapper?

Direckshun 05-09-2013 09:03 AM

Some oooooooold Catapano tape.

You should make a prissy bitch repository thread where you can bitch about Direckshun instead of putting it in legitimate football threads that are hard to come by in the offseason.

JFC, people. On one hand people bitch about only bashing Alex Smith/Reid/Dorsey. On the other hand, when somebody posts football threads, it's not good because they just so happen to do it too much.

And you're adding so much to the topic. Thanks.

My comment was more directed toward comparing this dude to an All Pro. We've already got a Black Wes and TD/Bo Jackson combo to look forward to.

Well......he'll have a year to figure out if he can stand up or not. I see him being brought in nickle and dime packages for the first year anyways.
