John Morgan at Field Gulls is currently running a couple of great features, reviewing the play of recent Seahawks draftees Aaron Curry and Max Unger. The first piece looks at how Unger graded out in a game against Oklahoma State.
"Unger is built long and his musculature is decidedly working man's. He looks like a butcher or a blacksmith. He has good weight distribution and very good balance. Out of the blocks or one the move, Unger has great explosive power. He unloads and powers through his blocks showing good hip snap and hand placement. That allows him to get under and topple defenders."
Morgan then breaks down Aaron Curry's performance in a game between Wake Forest and Boston College. Spread over three articles (1, 2 ,3) it's a pretty fair review looking at the highs and lows of Curry's display.
"BC runs a zone read with Crane keeping it. Alphonso Smith strikes from the third level forcing an arcing fumble. Curry pushes Anderson aside and shows good body control and good hands to scoop the loose ball. Yet another reason to run away from Aaron Curry -- if only anyone could."
Overall Morgan's work is real draftnik's delight. It's the kind of thing I love to read when the off season is pretty quiet and not much is happening. Well worth checking out if you feel the same way.
