Draft This Guy: Robert Nkemdiche, DL, Ole Miss

| April 8th, 2016

robert-nkemdiche-out

Four Thoughts

At 6-foot-3 and 294 pounds, his 40-yard dash (4.87 seconds), bench reps (28 at 225 pounds), vertical (35 inches) and broad jump (9 feet, 8 inches) were all in or near the top percentile for defensive tackles.

  • Nkemdiche is one of the only players in this draft who passed my “jumped off the screen” test during the college football season. These are players that make me pause the game I’m watching and ask, “Who the hell is that?” (My three favorite examples being Ndamukong Suh, Justin Blackmon and Aaron Donald.) At Alabama, Ole Miss’ most difficult opponent of the year, Nkemdiche was the best player on the field and led the Rebels to victory. He had 2.5 tackles for loss, including a half sack. He was unblockable.
  • If he falls out of the first round the Bears should be clawing at the walls of their war room throughout Thursday night. Risking a second-round pick on this kid is no risk at all because the reward could be an NFL star.

    Million Dollar Talent – 10 Cent Brain?

    You HAVE to be concerned about how a big payday will affect a kid with his existing track record.

    • willbest

      Do they have to give a rookie a signing bonus? I know they have to guarantee X amount of money, but it might be better if they gave him $2 million a year rather than $5 million in year 1 and then 1 million in 2, 3 and 4.

  • Shady

    You had me at “smoking synthetic marijuana and jumping/falling out windows” I’m sold!

    • Irish Sweetness

      This is the most pressing question for me. Why does a man smoke synthetic marijuana?

      What’s wrong with the stuff God made ?

      If POX can’t live with Brandon Marshall, they are going to pass the shit out of this guy, for better or for worse. The second round will have a bunch of guys with fewer questions over them.

      I’m feeling Jihad or Correa in the second.

      • That Guy

        I think its a legal substance maybe?

        • Trac

          All things that are lawful are permissible but not all things that are lawful are profitable.

      • Trac

        Our creator made hemlock as well, did He not?

  • That Guy

    I doubt this one is on the Bears’ draft board. Pace is trying to build a high character group of guys. There will be other players, though its always hard to pass on a guy this talented.

  • Irish Sweetness

    OBJ’s cousin, Terron is 5’11, 230lbs. Skipped college football. His pro day :
    “He reportedly ran an unofficial 4.47-second 40-yard dash, bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times, with highly explosive testing of 44.5 inches in the vertical, and a broad jump of 11 feet.”

    36 reps????

    Wants to play running back. Will he be drafted? CAN he be drafted?

    He reportedly ran an unofficial 4.47-second 40-yard dash, bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times, with highly explosive testing of 44.5 inches in the vertical, and a broad jump of 11 feet.

    Zeke Elliott will be visiting the Bears pre-draft.

    • willbest

      I think the only rule on drafting a player is that they have their 21st birthday before the season starts.

    • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

      he’s a model on instagram. A model. Didn’t play college ball. The first time Burfict speared him in the head he would die.

  • Shady

    I mean this is Da BEARS blog so…

    AWW look at this little guy!

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/07/us/bear-cub-rescued-florida-irpt/index.html

    I’d take him home and raise him if I didn’t think he’d eat me in my sleep in a couple years.

    • wvankley

      Nah, you could probably domesticate one of those little southern black bears. It would be fun to try, with unpredictable results.

      • CanadaBear

        Yeah, they aren’t all Gentle Ben’s.

  • MB30SD

    Watching the new point break.

    Not going to get into the garbage environmental activist drivel baked into erra scene, but talk about destroying a classic… jesus H christ.

    So bode and his band are… Zee gehmans?!?!

    Jesus… Keanu Reeves is spinning in his grave right now

    • Scharfinator

      He dug a grave, got into it, and spun around just to make a point! Then he went back to filming John Wick 2.

      • MB30SD

        Can’t wait fo that shit

        • Scharfinator

          My buddies sing the praises of the first one, I’ve just never got around watching it.

          I love the premise though… gangsters kill his puppy dog, end result – lots of dead gangsters.

          • MB30SD

            It was surprisingly good. Next one sounds much better

          • Scharfinator

            Reeves is a beast.

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            worst plot ever considering it could have been awesome if they delved further into the criminal organizations. Some of the most entertaining gun scenes in recent memory. Keanu throws himself into that shit. Cannot wait for the 2nd one.

    • Johnnywad

      Yo. Just spent the week on the beach in San Juan. I get it now.

      • MB30SD

        You’ve never been to a beach before?!?! : )

        San juan PR?

        • Johnnywad

          Plenty of times. Never one like that. Clear water, great surf all day every day, perfect sand, 80-85 degrees and no rain for a straight week. Sounds a lot like your description of SD

          Yes. PR.

          • MB30SD

            I was mussin!

            ….as I look out the window at pouring rain. :_ (

            Sounds delightful, glad you enjoyed my maings.

      • Joecashflow

        Heading there…in Granada today. Hope you left me a beer.

        • Johnnywad

          You might dig around and find one or two left. Enjoy man. That place is beautiful.

    • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

      There is only one Johnny Utah. Only one Bodhisattva.

  • This is one that comes down to scouting out the character, which is the stuff (along with medical) we as fans have the least access to. If they’re ok with him from a character standpoint, there’s little doubt he will be the BPA at 11, and I’d be fine with that pick.

    • Big Mike

      Can you say Alonzo Spellman. Poor bastard was untreated bi-polar.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      I don’t need much more scouting than the getting caught with 7 joints after falling out the window thing.

      • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

        ha, 7

        • CanadaBear

          I hope he was sharing. Unless synthetic weed isn’t very potent that’s way more weed than anyone, other than George Clinton, can smoke in a night.

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            I think synthetic makes people go crazy time.

          • CanadaBear

            Gotta agree. I have no experience with the fake stuff.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            He dimed out one of his teammates for being there as well, but his teammate didn’t do a header out the window, so I think it got glossed over.

          • CanadaBear

            Nothing like high character guys.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            Ah, I forgot it was Tunsil that he said was in the room with him.

      • Johnnywad

        No kidding. He’s obviously durable as well as prepared.

  • Big Mike

    Who was the guy? Bears drafted physical freak. DL, at least 10 years ago. Washed out of NFL. found walking around naked under a highway overpass.

    • Big Mike

      Alonzo Spellman.. diagnosed bi-polar, never treated. I thought that guy was going to be a Pro-Bowler. He showed flashes of being unblockable.

      • willbest

        Sort of sounds funny unless you know somebody with that level of mental illness. Had a prodigy friend of mine in a similar situation, schizophrenia. Problem with a lot of mental meds is while they allow you to function they take away what made the person special to begin with.

        • Big Mike

          I’m very familiar with bi-polar disorder. My daughter was diagnosed at the age of 18 while she was a freshman in college. She’s 23 now and successfully treating and managing her illness. But it took a a suicide attempt, several hospitalizations, seizures, credit card abuse, car accidents and tens of thousands of dollars of for evaluations, deductibles and non-covered expenses, to tame this disease. She lost herself for a while in the disease and during the recovery. Throughout her recovery, I could see glimpses of my child’s true self. About 2 years ago she broke through and has been herself since.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Been there.

          • Big Mike

            It’s tough. Made me stronger. Made me admire my daughter’s courage and toughness.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Likewise my lovely wife.

          • Big Mike

            Congrats to the two of you.

          • AlbertInTucson

            I discovered a patience I did not know I possessed.

          • Big Mike

            I can’t even express how much it changed me for the better. Patience, empathy, compassion. Thanks for sharing that

          • CanadaBear

            Really glad she broke through. When people look healthy it’s amazing how most people have no clue how sick an individual can be.

          • Big Mike

            It changed me to my core. Changed how I viewed the world. Learned who my friends were. Was really disappointed by the reaction of some former friends/acquaintances.

          • MB30SD

            Fuck man. Can’t even imagine. Awesome parents. Well in man

          • Big Mike

            Seeing your child go through this was gut wrenching. The feeling of helplessness and even guilt for not seeing this sooner took a lot out of my wife and me. It tested our relationship, it impacted my son, my business, people who work for me and so on. Sports in general, Bears in particular and have been part of my therapy and healing. Ok, enough feelings for the year. I have to go hunt something or throw a ball around. Something manly now that I’ve discussed feelings for a minute.. 🙂

          • MB30SD

            well done mike.

          • Big Mike

            Thanks. Sorry to be on a rant. Sometimes opening up just feels right. Everybody has their shit to deal with. So ok, Now everyone that looks at this corner of the web knows that about me.

          • MB30SD

            whatever man… that’s what it means to be a reg and why we come here year round. If I didn’t have the regs here, my PS4, and tons of strange during and through my divorce I would have gone mental.

            …………ok…. mostly the strange.

          • CanadaBear

            Those aren’t pillows! How ’bout them Bears?

          • Doc Nitty

            Good share, Big Mike. I honestly think my wife is suffering from some sort of mental illness. The level with which she’s out of touch with reality and the consequences of her actions really frightens me.

            About 2 years ago, she self diagnosed as ADD. She read up on it obviously. She then went to the doc and convinced the doc that she needs adderall. She’s been on adderall and amphetamine salts ever since. it was not long after this that our marriage started heading down the tubes. part of the reason she wanted to try it, and I supported it, was in the hopes that the meds would allow her to function at a higher rate (house cleaning, getting dinner ready at a reasonable time, etc…). Sadly, (even though she can’t see it) All of the problems that existed before hand have remained and the only thing that has increased is her erraticness, her irresponsibility, and her sailor mouth. She won’t even consider that I may be right, but I blame a large part on the fall of our marriage to those drugs.

          • Big Mike

            I don’t know what research you’ve done, or where you are in the process with your wife. But the person going through it has moments of clarity. It’s hard to understand why they essentially continue to call “orange”, “blue”. But that’s how they see it. Their self awareness plummets to near zero. ADD is a common and convenient self diagnosis. It covers a range of symptoms. We thought my daughter might be ADD in HS, we tested for this. She was given a prescription for Adderall. This was a bad diagnosis that triggered her first severe manic episode, which happened while she was away at school and led to a crash the let to a suicide attempt. While she was hospitalized, we had her sign over documents that allowed us to care for her and make medical decisions. This probably saved her. It took 2 years of diligent effort to find the right combination of medicine.

            Dealing with a mental illness has 4 pillars of success. Recognition, Medication, Counseling and Physical well being (all the stuff you are supposed to do, is even more important for someone who has a mental illness).

  • Doc Nitty

    Don’t mean to bring down da blog on a Friday but I just have to say that if I don’t find away to rid my self of Jezebel Elizabitch McGillicunty soon, I fear I may go postal. That is all. No go about your day.

    • CanadaBear

      Doc consider getting an apt. I know lawyers always say don’t move out but if the flip side is you do something stupid and it might affect your custody. Not to mention there is no doubt in my mind you’re the better parent. Of course, I’m biased.

      • Doc Nitty

        I’m not really going to go postal. That would have happened long ago. I just needed to get that off my chest this morning. Though I may die of a stress heart attack or a stroke before long.

        • CanadaBear

          Good luck Doc. My ex wasn’t a bitch. The only time we got semi-nasty was during the settlement conference. Besides fighting over assets, my mind kept going back to the fact that I was paying for both lawyers with the meter running.

          • Doc Nitty

            Let me just close by saying (though i don’t condone it) that life must’ve easier when you were allowed to beat your wife.

          • wvankley

            I can relate a bit, unfortunately anger usually produces the opposite result that you’re looking for. I’ve been in no win situations like that.

Good day.

          • CanadaBear

            It’s like the old joke about the guys in the bar talking about sneaking in the house late and getting caught. After ever guy has finished crying about getting caught the last guy says he never has any problems when he gets home. He makes as much noise as possible coming in the house and then yells loudly “Who wants to fuck?”. Crickets.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Document. Everything. And don’t leave the house.

  • CanadaBear

    If POX more or less gave away BMarsh and Black Uni because of “issues” there’s no way in hell they draft this guy.

    • willbest

      You mean like signing Ray McDonald? Black Uni and BMarsh also aren’t 22 year old kids.

      • Big Mike

        I’m sort of done with blasting Fox for Ray McDonald. It was a no lose deal. Don’t fuck up, you stay and I’m a genius. Fuck up and you’re gone. Black Uni and Bmarsh are set in their ways. Can’t say if I’d take him or not. Depends on what round and who else is available.

        • willbest

          Wasn’t intending to beat up Pox on McDonald, all though that should have been the sell rather than I met the guy and think he is changed. Just pointing out that they don’t necessarily have a problem with troubled players if they think the benefits outweigh the costs.

          • Big Mike

            Agreed

          • MB30SD

            PR

            Erraone’s doing it these days.

    • Big Mike

      Big difference in price, history etc. As a coach, you always think you can “fix” those other issues. I’d be very surprised if they took him in the 2nd round. But if he’s there at 3.. ?

      • CanadaBear

        I just don’t see it but never say never.

        • Big Mike

          Same, there are plenty of options. But at some point the risk / reward just says take a gamble. Who was the kid that went to Cincinnati. Started out great, I think his demons got to him though Vonte Burflict or some spelling like that. .

          • CanadaBear

            You’re right about the risk/reward for sure. Burfict is definitely a loose cannon.

          • MB30SD

            I loves me some loose cannon… when they only have one speed… beastmode.

            Same with the honeybadger but he’s cleaned up more.

          • CanadaBear

            Me too as long as they aren’t constantly getting penalized for being a dumb ass.

          • MB30SD

            I get it, but to be honest, I’d much rather have those penalties than the ones caused by an absolute shit bag like vlad dookie

  • wvankley

    No problem with him in the second, his actions eliminated him from 11 is all. I’ve never fallen out of a window, but I’ve embarrassed myself in the past, lol. I’m sure most teams have looked a bit deeper at character.

    • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

      Agreed. I am also hoping that your name is William Vankley because if it is that is the perfect name of a Scooby Doo villain.

      • MB30SD

        lol.

      • Irish Sweetness

        He would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for those meddling kids …

      • wvankley

        I constantly get emails for William and report them as spam. I was on the internet well before him, sometimes I wonder if he’s enjoying it. He’s a jr, and I doubt Bill would approve.

        Then again some might be from Dad or even from Grandpa, which I doubt. I think he’s William the third actually.

    • wvankley

      Raw player, tremendous upside.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Looks like he got blocked …with two OL holding him upright. Nice swim move on him though. He is quick for a man that weighs 300lbs.

      • wvankley

        I’m pretty sure they’ll draft at least one back, maybe also an UDFA. The guy from Indiana is another possibility.

        • willbest

          I am not talking about Kim K or Iskra Lawrence booty or anything remotely close to that. But waist to hip ratio is most certainly a fertility signal to males. Fat in the butt and thigh region is high in DHA and that is instrumental for brain development.

            Amazing how arousal makes a woman lactate. Something about it is really hot.

        • CanadaBear

          Whenever someone asks me if I’m a boob man or a booty man I always tell them I’m a vagina man. That usually kills the conversation.

            It takes a really spectacularly good…. or bad vagina to be memorable, in and of itself.

        My wife had two mini dachshunds when I met her. I had always been a fan of German Shepards, retrievers etc.. What are these little dogs?? Holy shit, they are freakin awesome. Sophie was bat-shit crazy and made me laugh EVERY day til the day she passed, and Badger (get it?), our male longhair miniature dachshund is still going STRONG at almost 14 years of age. I don’t look forward to not having him around someday… But I’ll tell you what, I’m sold on the dachshunds… They are outstanding dogs

        • CanadaBear

          My only issue with Wiener dogs goes back to my youth. I was going out with a woman (I was around 20) who was living at home with her 12 brothers and sisters + parents. Great family. We would have to wait for everyone to go to bed to have any fun. Her long haired Wiener dog, Bruno, would raise hell every time we started getting intimate. BASTARD!

    So D’Brickashaw Ferguson retired. Here’s an article he wrote last December on his feelings after watching the movie ‘Concussion’.

    Von Miller: “If I had to make my decision on it, he would already be on the
    Broncos,” Miller said Friday. “But we’ve got guys in the front office
    that make those decisions, and they put us in championships with those
    decisions.”

    Very interesting article. Totally made up but intriguing nonetheless. Replace the Brick with our 11th pick and send over Wilkerson as the reward…..If they hadn’t lost Harrison to free agency maybe i could see it.

    Here’s a nice summation of Cutler’s career. Pretty much spot on.

    • Irish Sweetness

      “Making matters worse was an offensive line that had Frank Omyale at left tackle, Chris Williams at left guard, Olin Kruetz at center, Roberto Garza at right guard, and J’Marcus Webb at right tackle.”

      Jeez – remember that? Omelette … then toast. Left to right.

          The Chief! He was actually pretty decent until the washed up hillbilly put a super cheap shot on him. I don’t think he ever got back to the same level.

    • beninnorcal

      Good read, Canada. I could see Waffle nodding like a bobble-head the whole time I read it. Cutler’s made his mistakes, but he’s always taken way too much blame for a pretty incompitant and dysfunctional organization with the Bears.
      I also never got the whole coach-killer argument. Look at the list of coaches he ‘killed’-do people really miss Trestman, Smith, Tice, or Mad Mike?

  • That Guy

    Greg Gabriel on twitter now says that people who talked about swapping firsts for Mo Wilkerson are idiots who don’t know anything about what players are worth. He then proceeds to tweet that Wilkerson was worth a low second.

    And what, Greg, is the value of swapping firsts with the Jets? The jump from #20 to #11 is worth approximately a low second.

    Greg Gabriel is an idiot. Those scenes in Moneyball when Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are talking to all the old scouts? Those guys are Greg Gabriel.

    Tyler Higbee just cost himself more than a million dollars. He was someone the Bears could take as early as the second round. Now? A potential steal on day 3 or 4. Pace better get a scout over there ASAP to find out whether this guy is a complete idiot or just a kid that needs some maturing.

        We can get him for less depending on what happens with all this mess. Guys like this usually go in the 6th or 7th if they get drafted (see e.g. Burfict, Marquess Wilson)

      Dress rehearsal against a team with sights on the division crown now that the gang is all broke up in Denver is helpful.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Because of course the Chiefs game couldn’t be in KC when I actually have time and availability to go…smh.

      • willbest

        Don’t the charge the same price for preseason tickets as they do for regular season? Or is that just a privilege they reserve for season ticket holders?

        • CanadaBear

          I’m guessing the discount after market is pretty brisk during preseason.

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          I agree with CB – usually they are pretty heavily discounted on the secondary market, as season ticketholders jettison the ones they don’t feel like going to.
          I got my tickets to the Cutler Bowl preseason game against Denver for like $100 for 4 seats in 2009, which was nice.
          KC is just way more convenient for me (3 hours vs 8 hours, plus hotel costs are cheaper) than going to Chicago.

  • Doc Nitty

    As I mentioned below, I did spring for G n’ R tickets (some were going for as high as $8,000). I’m sure I got shitty seats but I paid about $100 per after fees and tax. The cool thing is, i sprung for an extra one so I can take my ten year old son with me.

    He doesn’t get it now, but how cool will he feel in twenty years when he realizes that his first concert was Guns n’ fucking Roses?!?
