    Re: Phil Loadholt draft diaries:

    Thanks for the reads my friend.

    Basically, I’m focusing on vertical sets (things like blocking a guy wide
    If we don't see a better pocket this year then I hope they teach him to take them "REAL WIDE" as we all no that we struggled in that area a bit last year.

    what do you mean by that? Sooners have produced very well in the NFL throughout the years. No big name players besides Adrian recently but that's alright. Solid role players are never a bad thing.
    You might have forgotten tommie harris, d. dvoracek, r. williams, the tough-corey ivy... but i digress.
    no matter how much stoops try to put a spit shine finish on this corrupt organization, it still stinks of switzer-swagger.

    I decided to look into it because I figured there had to be a bunch of Sooners in the NFL, and there are. Nothing quite like Peterson, but some very solid players.

    - Jamaal Brown is a two time Pro Bowler and an All Pro for New Orleans.
    - Davin Joseph made the Pro Bowl last season for Tampa.
    - Chris Chester is a starter for the Ravens.
    - Brodney Poole is a starter for Cleveland.
    - Dusty Dvoracek has become a solid starter for the Bears.
    - Tommie Harris has had a solid career, but is more or less on the decline.
    - Mark Clayton has been solid in Baltimore, but has digressed since his solid second season.
    - Brandon Jones is solid in Tennessee, but nothing special.
    - Roy Williams had to beg for a job before the Bengals signed him.
    - Malcolm Kelly was injured most of last season.
    - Mark Bradley is a solid contributer for K.C. after getting let go by the Bears.
    - Corey Ivy is a solid nickel/dime corner.
    - Clint Ingram has become a regular on the Jags defense, getting a number of starts.
    - Curtis Lofton had a solid rookie year in Atlanta.

    That is a pretty decent number of contributors. None quite with the star power of Adrian Peterson, but Jamaal Brown and Davin Joseph are both really solid and Curtis Lofton could be a stud this season.

    As I said before, they produce solid players, maybe not superstars like USC or OSU other than Adrian... but these guys are solid, or showing signs of being solid at some point in their career.

    Recap:
    Pro Bowlers: Tommie Harris Roy Williams Jamaal Brown Adrian Peterson Davin Joseph

    Solid: Curtis Lofton, Corey Ivy, Clint Ingram, Mark Bradley, Mark Clayton, Chris Chester, Brodney Poole, Dusty Dvoracek, Brandon Jones, Garret Hartley (kicker)

    Potential: Malcolm Kelly, Phil Loadholt, Juaquin Iglesias, Nic Harris, Duke Robinson, Jon Cooper, Lendy Holmes, Manny Johnson, Allen Patrick, Reggie Smith, Rufus Alexander (we lost him to Colts
    :-\ )

    Prospects: Sam Bradford, Jermaine Gresham, Trent Williams, Demarcus Granger, Gerald McCoy, Travis Lewis, Demarco Murray, Chris Brown, Auston English, Dominique Franks, Ryan Reynolds (all likely to declare for the draft next year)

    thank you Josdin00 for the amazing sig!

    and yes... that just happened!

    Re: Phil Loadholt draft diaries:

    He sounds like a very good kid.

    I wonder how disruptive he can be against a 3-4 DE. With his size and strength, I think he can make douple-gapping very hard. Especially if Pickett will play the DE on the left side.

    Lets hope the PUKERs new scheme isn't really clicking as it should this year or else all of our OL might struggle with it a bit, especially our new C (Line Calls) and our new young mountain at RT. ;D

    Which makes me further question why we zone block in the running game...

    Im probably mistaken

    But I think I heard we use a more man to man blocking scheme while running

    Anyone know about this? Or am I making this up
