"Spiller continues to be very impressive from an athletic standpoint, showing the ability to get to the second level quickly and make defenders miss once there, and the speed to run away from the defense when he gets to daylight. He ripped off a 66-yard touchdown run on which he pressed the line of scrimmage well and got the defense flowing to the hole, then used his vision to see the cutback lane and hesitated just enough to let the pursuit run past. Spiller then hit the seam and was gone in a flash.
"However, we were surprisingly disappointed with his effort and competitiveness at times. Spiller was seen running out of bounds when he could have lowered his shoulder and picked up a few more yards. The bottom line, though, is that Spiller has the physical tools to make plays at the NFL level. He needs to sharpen some areas of his game but still projects as a late-first-round pick." - Steve Muench, Scouts Inc
I would agree with Muench's grading for Spiller, the late first round seems a good fit for someone who can be a threat every time he has the ball, but would probably be better suited in a two back system.
Muench also reviewed the Iowa vs Wisconsin game, offering some thoughts on offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga in the process:
"Bulaga showed he is quick enough to get into good position against speed as both a run and pass blocker. We would like to see him get more movement in the running game against smaller players like Schofield, but Bulaga did wall him off effectively and keep him out of plays. Bulaga also got into his pass sets quickly and established good initial position, though he does not show a violent initial punch and Schofield was able to knock his hands down and get around him on occasion. Bulaga was also caught flat-footed on a spin move at one point. In the end, Bulaga showed enough to remain in the late-first or early-second round range." - Steve Muench, Scouts Inc
Undoubtedly running back and offensive tackle are two positions the Seahawks will be focusing on over the next few drafts. The offensive line has been beaten up with injuries but you have to believe the Seahawks aren't going to give up on their project to transfer Sean Locklear to left tackle so quickly. This decision may even be made for them with a relatively poor 2010 class of left tackle's. Charles Brown (USC) is my favorite so far, but I want to see him in action a couple more times before I make a full judgement.
