Cravens would have been a devalued box safety in the past, but he might be considered a valuable matchup player in today’s game Cardinals Jersey Elite.* * * », Ask 5: What’s best player comp for TCU QB Trevone Boykin? The scoop: You know who Kenny Clark reminds me of? Eddie Goldman from last year. I noticed him wearing people out last year when I was studying Owa (Odighizuwa) and he’s doing it again this year.

Powerhouse at the point (of attack). — NFC regional scout on the UCLA DLThe skinny: The comparison to Goldman, a former Florida State defensive tackle, is an interesting one because Goldman was a run-stuffing defender without much pass-rushing ability, which is similar to Clark’s style. The big difference is that when Goldman was drafted 39th overall by the Chicago Bears, he was at least an inch taller and weighed 26 pounds more than Clark’s current listed weight (310).
Cravens added weight to his frame in preparation for his full-time position change, but I haven’t seen it affect his play speed in a negative way. He’s still able to line up on the slot and cover when asked.Players that used to be known as tweeners are now called hybrid players, and they carry more value due to their ability to match up against the increasing percentage of sub-packages that offenses are running out on the field.
However, he will get pigeon-holed as a zone-only guard unless he proves that his body can add mass. On tape, I see a tough player with some ability to drive-block, but I didn’t see enough to co-sign this scout’s statements just yet.Follow Lance Zierlein on Twitter

While Odhiambo has played left and right tackle at Boise State, NFL scouts are concerned about his arm length. The scout told me his arms have been measured at less than 33 inches, which is below the level NFL teams expect from tackles.Odhiambo has the athletic build of a tackle.
He will either be a 4-3 WILL (outside linebacker) or a 3-4 inside ‘backer. He’s carrying his new weight well and he’s tough enough to play down there as a pro. — NFC Pac-12 scout on the USC LBThe skinny: Cravens, a junior, was a safety/linebacker hybrid last season for the Trojans, but this year, he’s listed as an outside linebacker.
* * *The scoop: Boise State has a tackle who got hurt this week that I really like Trey Burton Jersey. I think he’s probably a guard in the league because he’s not as long as you need at tackle, but if he can hit the weight and bulk up, I think he has a shot at being a really good guard. — AFC West scout on senior Rees OdhiamboThe skinny: Odhiambo broke his ankle in the fourth quarter of this past weekend’s game against Wyoming, and this scout failed to mention that Odhiambo will have missed four games or more in each of his last three seasons due to injury.
