  • A Closer Look At Jordan Brailford With Cowboys Ride For Free
    by Gabe Ward on May 24, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    Hogs Haven Asks Cowboys Ride For Free About The Redskins New OLB Gabe Ward: This offseason the Redskins lost their weakside pass rusher Preston Smith to free agency. The Redskins had been planning to go with former 2nd round pick Ryan Anderson as the new starter but picked up two EDGE rushers in the draft: 1st round pick Montez Sweat and 7th round pick Jordan Brailford. Between Anderson (who plays with good strength, power, and hustle) and Sweat (who has prototypical length and athleticism), Brailford may not get too many snaps. Given his skill set, can you tell us how you think he can make his way onto the field and stick with the team? Micah Allen: Brailford has the ability to get to a quarterback that could give him an edge over his competition. If he can learn to get better control of his body and be more agile, I think he could be even more of a steal for the Redskins. He’s going to have to work really hard to prove himself, but I think he’ll put in that work. He’s got the skills to evade blocks that could also put him over the competition. He also needs to work on sticking with his guy if he wants to make the roster. If he can get those things perfected it would not surprise me for him to stick with the team. Gabe Ward: Sort of related to the above question. . .I am inspired when I see innovative defensive fronts across the NFL. Breaking out of typical personnel groupings certainly has its advantages. If you were the Redskins defensive coordinator how would you use Brailford on the field to best maximize his talent? Micah Allen: Brailford is a coachable player. He will adapt to whatever you want him to do. Like you talked about in your profile prior to the draft, he’s mobile and played all over at Oklahoma State last season. With the stats he put up in college, though, you have to think he’s best used as a pass rusher. He was one of the best in the conference last year for a reason. The game against Boise State is the perfect example of this. No matter where Jim Knowles put him, Boise couldn’t get to him. He can be disruptive if an O-line breaks down and he sees opportunity. He could also be disruptive on special teams because of his size and speed. Gabe Ward: In my research and viewing of Brailford, I surmised that he was held back a bit because of injury history and his lack of counter moves. Do you have any insight as to his development at OKST? Specifically, I’d be interested in how he’s grown as a player during his college career and if you think that trajectory looks good going into the pros. Micah Allen: He developed immensely while at Oklahoma State. In his first season, getting to play in 2017, he was sort of out-shined by a player you might have heard of named Emmanuel Ogbah. After Ogbah left, Brailford played in every game of his last two seasons. He improved on the field, becoming quicker and getting better with his hands. He was a All-Big 12 team selection his first year playing, and then was a First Team All-Big 12 selection his final year with the Cowboys. I really enjoyed watching him grow and learn from the guys he was around at OSU. He became someone that we here at CRFF were sad to see go. I think he grew into a leader at Oklahoma State as team captain his junior season. That tells me that he gained the respect of his teammates along the way. I see his ceiling only going up after staying healthy for a couple of years and some good coaching. Gabe Ward: The Redskins do ask their outside linebackers to drop back and cover a not insignificant about of the time, especially the weakside OLB. While I did see Brailford in zone coverage, I’m not sure he had much experience turning and running with TE’s or RBs (please correct me if I’m wrong). Do you think that would be one of his bigger weaknesses as far as being more of a complete OLB prospect? Do you think he has the physical capacity to do that well, or do you think he is much better as a pass rusher? Micah Allen: I’m going to be honest and say I do think he’s a better pass rusher. When he was in the back he tended to miss tackles because he went back there so fast. I just feel like he’s most comfortable in the pass rusher role. Now, that doesn’t mean he can’t be taught to be better in zone coverage. Like I mentioned before, he’s coachable. I just feel like it’s going to take some time for him to develop the skills to be good in zone. We tested it out with him in that Boise State game I mentioned, and it went okay, but we ended up putting him back where he had been before, and it was better. Gabe Ward: Could you give us any insight into Brailford’s abilities as a leader and motivator? Lately the Redskins have been trying to change the culture in the locker room by selecting high character young players with histories of leadership. Did Brailford have that role while at OKST? If not, that’s fine, but then how else do you think he can contribute to a winning culture with the team? Micah Allen: He was always pumped. He brings an excitement to a defense. He was definitely in that role at Oklahoma State; he was always the one pumping his arms up and down telling to crowd to get loud. He’s also been in that team captain role, which speaks to his leadership ability. I think he’ll bring a positive attitude to the locker room and contribute to a winning culture. He was on a team in college that preached culture so much it was on Mike Gundy press conference bingo boards. Gabe Ward: While Brailford is likely going to be at least 4th on the depth chart at the position, if he had the opportunity to consistently get on the field, which are the areas you think he would succeed in? Micah Allen: If he could get consistently on the field on special teams I think he could cause some chaos. He’s got the skill set to bring some physicality to the special teams. Also, he has speed at 250 pounds, so another area where I think he would succeed if he was given the opportunity is pass rushing. He’s so quick off the line and and he can definitely get to quarterbacks. I know I keep preaching that, but it’s just who he is. Gabe Ward: Could you give us a few words to describe the player the Redskins are getting in Brailford? Micah Allen: They’re getting a steal of a player — someone who is going to grow into an elite football player, I think. They’re also getting a great guy in Brailford that will bring a lot to their locker room. I want to thank Micah again for her time spent answering my questions about Jordan Brailford. Brailford was one of my favorite ‘mid-round’ EDGE prospects, and I was ecstatic when the Redskins took him with their last pick. I think Micah provided great insights into what a value he is. As a formatting note, I would have liked to include Micah in the main byline, as I have done with other authors from other blogs in years past, but the new editor restricts permissions to do that in a new way. This is, at minimum, a 50/50 endeavor, with the bulk of the thinking and writing coming from the people gracious enough to answer questions, and I want to make sure they get their credit. I’ll likely be including this note for the rest of the series. […]

  • Can 2019 UDFA B.J. Blunt help a ‘Skins defense thin at both safety and linebacker?
    by Bill-in-Bangkok on May 24, 2019 at 9:00 am

    Blunt struggled with being academically ineligible; he is a former safety-turned-undersized-linebacker-turned-safety-again who wasn’t drafted, yet, somehow, he may have a role on the 2019 Redskins We’re lucky that Hogs Haven prepared a pre-draft profile on B.J. Blunt that was published in late February. Let’s look at some of the highlights from that profile: Bryan ”BJ” Blunt, LB/S College: McNeese State | Conference: Southland College Experience: Senior | Age: 23 Height / Weight: 6’0” / 220 lbs Projected Draft Status: 7th Round or UDFA NFL Comparison: Malcolm Smith College Statistics Player Overview If teams are looking for a hybrid type of defender with strong special teams upside, they may want to take a flier on BJ Blunt. According to 247 Sports, Blunt was a three-star recruit coming out of McDonough High School in New Orleans. [H]e was deemed academically ineligible coming out of high school, [so] Blunt began his playing career with Garden City Community College in Kansas [where] he primarily played strong safety, and excelled in that role. In 2016, GCCC won the NJCAA National Championship, a season in which Blunt recorded 8 interceptions and received NJCAA All-American honors. After his success at the junior college level, he transferred to McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana [where he] switched to linebacker. By his Senior year, he was the team’s best player on the defensive side of the ball. In 2018, he was named the Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year and was an AP FCS First-Team All-American. This all sounds okay for a UDFA — especially the Defensive Player of the Year and FCS 1st team All-American honors. East-West Shrine Game [At the ‘19 East-West Shrine Game] he had a solid game that was capped off with a ridiculous interception that should have gotten the attention of talent evaluators everywhere. Red Flag? While he did himself a favor on the field during the all-star game, the event also raised his first major red flag. Blunt only came in at 203 lbs during the official weigh-in. This immediately [raised] the question [of whether] a permanent switch to safety was inevitable. According to his camp, Blunt has got his weight up to 220 lbs. since the game. This remains to be seen and will be a big topic of discussion at McNeese State’s Pro Day on March 21st. Pro Day Results It looks like Blunt’s weight is, in fact, up to 220. For what it’s worth, Redskins.com lists him at 6’1” and 220 pounds. It seems that, for the Redskins, his experience at safety and his ‘tweener’ size might actually be positives that could allow the defense to be more ‘multiple’ or flexible. How He Would Fit The Redskins The Cardinals Head Coach [in 2014], Bruce Arians, fit [Deone Bucannon] into their defensive scheme as a hybrid Linebacker/Safety. Bucannon had early success in this role and other teams quickly took notice. Since the NFL is a copycat league, other teams followed suit and attempted to find their own Moneybacker. The Redskins have made two such attempts. First they spent a second round pick in 2016 on Sua Cravens (ya, that didn’t work); and then they turned around the very next year and used a seventh round pick on Josh Harvey-Clemons, so there is evidence that this is a position of interest for Washington. While Harvey-Clemons has been serviceable in spot duties on defense and special teams, he has had a hard time getting onto the field in his first couple of seasons. Blunt is this same type of Moneybacker-type player who could be a special teams star sooner rather than later. He has all the physical tools and tenacity to be just that. I think by adding Blunt, the team would be looking to either press Harvey-Clemons to improve or move on from him altogether. Click this link to access all 2018 and 2019 Undrafted Free Agent profiles on Hogs Haven Just two weeks ago, Nola.com published an article about B.J. Blunt, From New Orleans shipyards to NFL minicamp, BJ Blunt plans to ‘do it right the first time’. Joining the Redskins “There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s going to make the team,” said Southeastern defensive coordinator Lance Guidry, who coached Blunt at McNeese. If the Southland Conference’s defensive player of the year does indeed make the 53-man roster, it will be just another stop on a football journey that led him away from the sport three years ago to becoming one of the NCAA’s top defensive players. It’s a road that has taught Blunt many lessons, mainly “to do it right the first time.” Armed with the right attitude and undeniable talent, he’s out to do just that with his NFL career. “My goal is to show I belong and show why I’m going to be a premiere, dominant person, three years from now, in the NFL,” Blunt said. How Can You Not Smile, Everyday Is A Blessing #HTTR pic.twitter.com/8XbRUbNKR3— B.Blunt Sr. (@beedoe8_) May 12, 2019 The Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans offered him contracts as well. Blunt decided Washington’s defensive scheme was the best fit for him. “Looking over their schemes, talking with Rob Ryan while I was up there on the visit, it just felt more like a connection,” he said. “So I just decided to go with those guys over the other teams that called.” That decision was the first time in his football career he was able to truly decide where he would play. A rocky start to his college careeer “Student-athlete? No. (He’s) a football player,” [former college coach Frank] Daggs said with a laugh when he recalled how he would describe Blunt to college coaches. Blunt ultimately signed with McNeese in 2014 but was ruled ineligible due to his academics. He still, however, attended McNeese, but his first stint in Lake Charles didn’t end well. “I went in with the same mindset I had in high school and failed out of McNeese,” Blunt said. From there he went to work painting and sandblasting in the New Orleans-area shipyards for the next year. While he was earning a living, coaches who recruited him out of high school were wondering where he was, as his Division I five-year clock had started. According to NCAA rules, players have five calendar years to play their four seasons of college football once they enroll. Garden City Community College Seven players coached by [Jeff] Sims have been taken in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft and the way Blunt practiced reminded him of those guys. “Common trait that all those guys have is that you can’t tell what day of the week or what time of the year it is when you watch them play football,” he said. “They are the same dude all the time.” “Every game is the Super Bowl. Every practice is the Super Bowl. Every play and every practice is the Super Bowl.” Blunt earned first team All-Region VI honors and tied for second in JUCO football with eight interceptions to go along with 50 solo tackles and two forced fumbles during that season, when Garden City was crowned the 2016 NJCCA National Champion. Once again the big schools came calling. McNeese State “He had some bigger places that wanted to sign him, but he was a couple classes short and he didn’t want to wait around anymore. So, he ended up coming to McNeese because we were his school of choice. And we knew we had a diamond in the rough, I promise you.” Blunt filled in at linebacker due to an injury to Cowboys starter Christian Jacobs that season and was an all-conference honorable mention in 2017. He moved back to safety for his senior season and dominated posting 102 tackles, 11 sacks, six pass breakups and two fumble recoveries en route to being named the Southland’s top defender. Guidry said Blunt’s effort in the weight room and practice was always high and Blunt was very coachable. FB: @McNeeseFootball linebacker BJ Blunt named 2018 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year. #SouthlandStrongRELEASE: https://t.co/6xKvGlrCbp pic.twitter.com/rcF2q520u6— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) November 20, 2018 “Even though he was the best player we had on our team, BJ could take a butt chewing,” Guidry said “And his only response ever was ‘Yes, sir!’” “(Blunt) was so driven internally … that’s why he was so easy to coach,” Guidry said, “He wasn’t a guy that I had to motivate. He motivated himself and he motivated everybody around him.” “Ever since he was young, he was a person that could never be denied,” Daggs said. “I know him going the hard route made him stronger.” Well, I’m intrigued. Unlike, say, Stanford Graduate Bryce Love, Blunt doesn’t sound like a natural student, but perhaps he is a natural athlete. Still, he wasn’t drafted; he’s got questionable size for a linebacker - a position he played only as a junior; he is already 23 years old. Is this guy really a good fit for the Redskins? To get some insight into B.J. Blunt as a player on the field, and to get some clarity about his postion, I turn again this week to James FitzGerald. James FitzGerald (@GMDfitz7765) is a former college player, high school coach, and an avid college football fan who has spent hours in the film room watching opponents and his own teams. His analytical skill adds depth to these profiles that I can’t supply on my own. He seems to be rather positive about Blunt, and his possible career as a Redskin. Fitz’s film review Film Watched: Northwestern State University v. Mcneese State. BYU Multiple highlight reels B.J. Blunt was the leader on his college team defense; he was the one making the calls on defense and communicating with his teammates. Focusing on his individual play, Blunt has good vision and a nose for the ball. He can find the ball carrier and move toward him with great efficiency. He also takes great angles toward the ball carrier to get there as quickly as possible. In pass defense, his coverage skills are adequate; I won’t say he is excellent in coverage, but he is good enough in both man and zone defenses. One thing that stands out about Blunt is his game speed. I was surprised, watching his film, at how quickly he closes in on a ball carrier. He uses his acceleration to close in and make play after play. He also has a very high motor, always trying to make a play even when he is out of it. This kind of energy and hard work can make him a playmaker on defense. B.J. Blunt has potential to be a great tackler. At times, he demonstrates great form tackling the ball carrier, and he hits hard. However, Blunt too often goes for ‘shoe lace’ tackles or arm tackles. If he attempts do that in the NFL, he will miss a lot. This is probably a trait that can be coached out of him. Blunt also tends to avoid blocks rather than shedding them, which means that it takes him longer to get to the ball carrier. He likely does this because he is actually poor at shedding blocks. He is small for an inside linebacker and he does often get swallowed up by opposing lineman, so he has trouble shaking the block and then successfully pursuing the ball carrier. As a pass rusher, B.J. relies on his speed. He will need to work on a few pass rush moves in order to make a difference in the pass rush at the NFL level. How would he fit with the Redskins? BJ Blunt is a good all-around player. He played special teams, inside linebacker, outside linebacker, and safety in college. He did play in the FCS and NJCAA, so his production might be exaggerated due to playing against lower level competition. He will play inside linebacker with the Redskins because he isn’t fast enough to play safety in the NFL; I believe it’s why he was forced to change position at McNeese State. However, his high motor, vision, and linebacker mentality will make him a candidate for a backup linebacker role. Blunt played a lot of special teams in college and that is important for a UDFA trying to make the team. I predict that he will be a special teams contributor and a role player on defense with a lot of growth potential. A taste of BJ Blunt’s Twitter feed: DWA Till I Fade Away!
