Curtis Weaver 2019 NCAA Sack leader This kid looks big and fast seems to use his speed more than his power which seems kinda opposite of what you would think looking at his build.Doubt he makes it to the 2nd unfortunately but someone I would think about trading back into the 1st for maybe in the mid to high 20’s.Looks like a guy that could play both DT or DE which we know this staff loves.

Assuming MP stays, I don’t see us taking Weaver—though I do like his burst off the snap. MP likes his DL to have long arms.

Mid/Late round pick. What I look for in pass rushers is: Burst(check), bend and technique. I only saw burst. Didn’t see any speed to power transition. But it’s hard to deny production. Some guys you just can’t explain. I’d give him a 3rd/4th rd grade.

Patricia doesn’t want sacks. He wants guys who are not disruptive, cost a motherload and get token pressure in glorified preseason games. :slight_smile:

You know this isn’t true because the process just hasn’t been completed yet.


It’s our fault because we haven’t respected the process yet.

From that standpoint.

Sure seems to be the case.

“From that standpoint” has become the most aggravating and annoying phrase, in my life. LMAO!!! :laughing:

Even more annoying than “The Patriot Way”?

I was sick of the “Patriot Way” 2 seconds into Quinn’s regime.

Just so long as he’s not like this guy who piled up a bunch of sacks as a senior.

Larry Webster III finished college at Bloomsburg playing four seasons in basketball, and only two seasons of football in which he recorded 88 tackles, 26 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and one interception.

Hey, let’s have a little decorum here.

Weaver came here (I work at Boise State) at 300+ LBs. He worked down to 265 his first year but still looks pudgy. He has 3 less sacks than Young and about 36 over 3 years. He has a good burst and speed. And yes he is playing against lesser competition but he is also play with lesser team mates. There is not one other player on the D line or LB that will make it to the NFL. Every team we play game plans for him and he still has 13.5 sacks. Unfortunately (for my Lions), scouts have been here for every game and he is probably a late first rounder.

I have him mocked to us in the 2nd round but I think he’ll slim-down even more and will probably go higher after his combine workouts. He could be a top 20 pick when it’s all said and done. He can do everything a 3-4 team wants and his production is better than Chase Young’s for 3 years.

Did you even watch the video? Literally, the first play they showed he lowers his shoulder and ducks right under the blocker showing his bend! The second play, he did it again but didn’t have to bend as far.

Your scouting needs some refining, my friend.

Yes I did. Thanks! Anyone can do something once or even a few times during a season. He doesn’t have bend. In his highlights, which usually means his best moments, he doesn’t CONSISTENTLY bend around the corner. And he doesn’t show much hand technique. If you’d like a class…My office hours are from 9…to 5! :joy:

Uh, ok.
I think I’ll have to pass on your class if that’s what you think. LOL

Either a guy can bend and turn a corner or he can’t.

You wanna make a wager as to what round he goes closer to? I said late 1st/early 2nd…you said 3rd or 4th round. $100 to your favorite charity says you’re wrong.

12/14/19: Weaver has been very good for Boise State with 50 tackles, 13.5 sacks, a pass defended and forced fumble. Team sources say that Weaver is a good college player who is a try-hard guy, but he has physical limitations for the NFL.

Weaver wins with his hands probably even more-so than with his feet.

Curtis Weaver, EDGE, Boise State

Weaver has tallied 28 tackles for loss and 20.5 sacks in his first two seasons at Boise State. As a redshirt sophomore in 2018, he demonstrated incredibly developed pass-rushing moves and edge-collapsing bend reminiscent of Nick Bosa.

He just needs to display the latter more often. Occasionally, he’s pushed past the pocket when he doesn’t play super low. However, very few outside rushers possess the effective, wide-ranging hand work and ability to bend the corner of Weaver. His burst off the snap is impressive too. The 6-3, 265-pound prospect has all the makings of being a first-round pick in 2020 if he builds on his first two stellar seasons with the Broncos.
