Nose Tackle Possibilities in the 2011 Draft

 

 

   Description of the nose tackle position and responsibilities.

Also the Draft Tek's ranking of NTs for the 2011 draft are included with this link. Many of the players listed toward the bottom of the following table will be undrafted free agents. The Redskins should be able to find some NTs on this list.

Abbreviations: BRep=bench repetitions; VJump=vertical jump; 20Yd, 10Yd are time splits of the 40Yd (40 yard); BJump=broad jump; SIG=Scouts Inc grade; NFP=National Football Post ratingss. NA=not available; --= not performed; and *= Pro day results.

There are some anomalies in this list. For instances, Terrell McClain would seem more like the athletic ability (while short) of a 3-4 DE. Also reports on Frank Kearse seem contradictory: Kearse Impresses Scouts at A&M Pro Day. On the other hand, Scouts Inc. only gave him a grade of 20 which indicates on pro potential.

Not since 2007 has twelve NFL team scouts showed up at the Louis Crews Stadium on Monday for Alabama A&M's annual pro day. Most left impressed with Bulldog defensive tackle Frank Kearse. The 6-4, 315-pound prospect put up impressive numbers in front of representatives from the Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots, Tampa Bay Bucs, Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburg Steelers.
