2019 Dream Bowl Jan 21st Recap by Matt Anzio
Patriot Team :
- DE – Prince Unaegbu, 6’5 250 lbs, Pace: Prince was cut up, he has a 6 pack and was the most impressive of a very good group of D prospects at The Dream Bowl. Tall with good length all around uses his long reach to swim around OT’s. Set the edge lovely against big 6 ft 7 OT, Breadner. Can add 20 to 25 lbs, but has the perfect frame without losing his burst. On the year he had 55 tackles, 8.5 TFL, 5.5 sacks & 1 FF. Prince knows how to work the edges with his speed size & leverage. That was an eye-opening performance & I wanted to highlight his amazing game and shine some light on this hunter of QB’s. He was a magnificent specimen. Unaegbu’s career just started and he just has to put everything he has into the game. In the gym & in the film room. He puts the work in think he will be sacking QB’s in the NFL, CFL or XFL .
- DB – Raymond “ Buck “ Jones Jr, Delaware, 6 ‘ 195 lb: He had a Nice INT with an exciting return to this team in scoring position. Played outside linebacker in Delaware but also on display I feel he can make a fine safety prospect. The smaller DB shows he can hang with wide out‘s, and TE’s that are much larger in stature. Had a strong outing overall looking good in coverage, tackling & on special teams. Has been used as a corner, safety special teams have played zone & man. He shows to do well in all areas of the game. Put some good tape out there at the Dream Bowl.
- WR – Thomas Ives IV – Colgate, 6’5, 210 lbs: The big wide out had a couple nice plays including a TD. A TD in which he beat his man over top & Ogle dropped a dime for a long touchdown score in the 3rd quarter. Almost had another in the first half but couldn’t quite reel it in. Still, he ran a fantastic route going hard off the top of the sluggo route. Obvious good size, possession receiver with big strong hands. Should Be an immediate red zone threat. Crazy wingspan and catch radius to extend his arms & body make the tough grabs. Good understanding of routes, he is a big and physical WR but surprisingly speedy. I think he should run in the 4.5 something range. Interested in his pro day numbers will be sure to update my database as I get his numbers.
- OL – Josh Doyle, Eastern Illinois, 6’4 304 lbs: Looked good most the day although he got beat at times, he showed resilience to bounce back. Strong plant leg anchors kick leg looks to move well. Good knee bend drops his hips well, can get to the 2nd level on run blocks. Holds a pretty deep pocket on pass protection. Started all 11 games as a Senior blocked for a top FCS O-line at EIU. An O-line group that also ranked 9th in the FCS in passing.
- LB – Kadeem Langhorne, 6’1 240 lbs, Pace: Extremely impressed with the defensive talent coming out of Pace in these two Bowl games. Seem to be recruiting & coaching these young men so well, my hats off to Pace Athletics. Langhorne was making plays all over the field Sunday. Himself, Prince & DL Jaheem Martin all from Pace wearing #90, #99 & #50 were feasting all day long. Langhorne was a North East 10 All-Conference 2nd Team as a Senior. Also led team with 74 tackles added 6 TFL, 2.5 sacks with 3 FR. Pace has a very solid front 7 that must have been tough for their Division opponents.
- QB – Alex Ogle, Tusicium, 6’ 4 230 lbs: Showed off his arm with a strong pass to Thomas Ives for a TD. Also, showed a quick release, good accuracy the ability to escape pressure at times, and make plays while under attack. Grittiness to stay in the pocket under pressure. Could calmly go through his progressions. Played in 10 games as a Senior had 2,056 yds 14 TD’s 205.6 ypg. Originally transfer from Boise State. Hard to get a real feel of the Offense, but as far as timing & mechanics Ogle is worth a look.
Other Players of Interest Patriots
- WR/ KR – Shaveiz Stewart, Delaware Valley, 6’3 205: First Team All-Conference, the lead team with both receiving & return yard. Holds both game & season records for returns. Averaging 22. Had the longest return on his team this year with a 77 yd return TD. Didn’t get much of a chance to showcase his skills at this game & on KR could tell it bothered him they avoided him but as a scout, I dug into some of his tapes. He is an exciting player with the ball in his hands has some ridiculous speed & agility with an ideal frame.
- Justice Bishop, DE/LB Union, 6’2 240 lbs: Had a few tackles a nice PBU but he has been a player of interest for a while now for me. Did a report on him before the season played DE at Union had a strong career with good numbers. Shows the transition to outside LB well. Although still think he adds 20 -25 lbs of muscle bulk he can be an edge rusher. He has the right bend good handwork on the edge and can shed blocks. Started 10 games went on to have a spectacular year that included a career 13 tackle game.
- DB – Jhaloni Johnson, Kutztown, 6’ 2, 185 lbs: Had a pick 6 in the 1st quarter showing off ball hawking & breakaway speed. Setting a tone for a fantastic defensive outing for the Patriots. School record holder in Outdoor 4 X 100m relay. Always around the ball made several plays INT, a couple tackles & PBU’s very exciting active prospect. If his physicality was in question cause of his track & field background believe he is showing the toughness to tackle or ay a hit.
- RB – Kevin Coy – Chadron State, 6 ‘ 215 lbs: Scored a nice TD following his blockers (OT – Doyle, East Illinois & TE Sean Smith, Newberry right up the alley). Rapid moving feet plays below his pads sinking his already low hips. Strong jab stance quick counters optimal field vision. Wide stance technique could be optimal in blocking situations. Nice drop or stuffer step anticipates the tackle hesitates or changes direction to avoid being tackled. Lowers his shoulder delivers a powerful hit on anyone trying to upend him.
- DL – Donnell (Paco) Bonds, Fairmont State: 6 ‘ 293 Monster beast of a D line prospect looked alert on the attack in the game. Had some nice plays including a huge TFL in the 2nd qt crashing through the line with that big lean. Can take on double teams consistently. Outstanding lean wide wingspan is able to get each arm on a blocker neutralizing 2 linemen freeing up edge rushers. Heavy lean, sheds blocks with strength & short area explosiveness. Stout low center of gravity uses it to get up underneath blocks. The D from both sides had some real talent but Bonds stood out at D line for the Crusaders.
- WR – Carnel Harley, Slippery Rock, 6‘6 205 lbs: Body control agility for a large wideout is impressive. Can go up high point the ball. He is an interesting prospect with tight end type height but moves in the 4.5 range. Someone will take a flyer on him. See if he can make a name for himself in a camp or preseason game. Hard to imagine he doesn’t get a fair shake. If his pro day numbers can jump off the sheet he could earn some money with his elite frame.
- DL /OLB – Cardell Rawlings, Wingate, 6’2 240 lbs: Scouts where high on him coming into the game. Heard he had a good few days of practice. Active good sideline to sideline movement ability. Played both DL & LB at the Dream Bowl looked good in both. Had a pick in the 1st & a sack in the 4th quarter of the game.
- DB – Payton Hendrix, Texas A & M Kingsville: 6’2 210 lbs: Had 2 INT’s in the first half of the game one in the back of the endzone the other in a zone combo coverage cutting the ball off. Big and physical with so many good DB’s was hard to choose the best but 2 INT’s certainly catches one’s attention. There was a lot of ints in this game. Hendrix was around the ball a bunch lurking in the secondary. Had 16 tackles vs Eastern New Mexico 9/22/2018
- OL Ryan Breadner, Saskatchewan, 6’7 360 lbs: Think a man of that magnitude plus a good college career will get a shot somewhere. Big mauler that can move people in the run game. Create huge holes or hold his ground against the run. Because of his height, the 360 pounds is well proportioned throughout his frame
Other Players Of Interest Crusaders
- DL – Derek Dorr, Edinboro, 6’2 310 lbs: Absolute stud Nose tackle prospect that should find a home in some League. Dominated in the middle. He is a big, lean player with a powerful push and surprising quickness. Could easily be a 3 technique DT or NT but possesses the right amount of lean & sudden burst to be an every down type D lineman. Above average bend explodes off the line more like a 275 lb End than a 300 plus pound DT.
- Center – Lavonne Gauthney, Valdosta State, 6’3 315 lbs: Lived up to the hype the OL had a tough day but I watched Gauthey hold his own and make some nice run lanes for several different backs. He was a Field general, controlling the line, and recognizing blitzes adjusting accordingly. Understands combo blocks basically every aspect of line alignments & adjustments. Strong punch stays square, strong wide base. Maybe the most Pro ready OL prospect at the game. Snapped the ball well with a couple different QBs looked good snapping in Shotgun. Held his own in pass protection despite a very good Patriot D front. He is a legit center prospect hard nose lunch pail type guy someone who could be a 7th round pick or priority free agent.
- WR – Jylil Reeder, East Stroudsburg, 5’8 185 lbs: Return in the 2nd quarter showed off his raw speed nice jump cut elusiveness. With outstanding balance agility working his way thru the coverage for a beautiful return. A slot type guy much like the wideout from ESU Tim Wright who was on the Philadelphia Eagles mini-camp roster this past season. The explosive speedy slot that can be a benefit as a return man. Nice year at ESU with over 600 yds & 6 TD’s dynamic slot WR & ST.
- WR/DB – Brandon Miller, Marist – 6’ 190 lbs Nice INT in the 3rd quarter has good fluidity saw him in on some coverages. Looks legit in zone closing getting his hands up or making a play on the ball. Has good physicality with the willingness to tackle. Along with his teammate, DB Max Cepeda was also very impressive himself. He was flying around an undersized DB with a nose for the ball & Miller seems in a similar mold. Good job coaching up them DB’s at Marist both also looked good on special teams.
- DL/OLB – Justin Stewart, Central Oklahoma, 6’2 250 lbs: Yet another D line prospect to be very active I am sure I am missing a bunch. Can only fit so many trying to keep within 10 prospects per team. Stewart had a sack, forced fumble & fumble recovery on the same play. Ferocious rip keeps good pad level to get around his man jar the ball loose & recover in the 2nd.
