31. CARSON WELLS | Colorado 6026 | 241 lbs. | rSR. Bushnell, Fla. (South Sumter) 2/20/1999 (age 23.19) #26
BACKGROUND: Jacob “Carson” Wells was born in Inverness, Fla., and grew up about an hour north of Tampa on his family’s farm, where his father (Larry) raises
cattle. He attended South Sumter High (alma mater of Keanu Neal), where he saw immediate varsity reps as a freshman linebacker. As a junior, Wells posted 111
tackles, 25.0 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks and one forced fumble. Seeing action at defensive end, linebacker and tight end as a senior, he led South Sumter to a 10-win
season and was named the defensive player of the year in central Florida, finishing with 96 tackles, 18.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks and two interceptions. Wells also
lettered in basketball and track, setting personal bests of 11.30 in the 100-meters, 42’ in the shot put and 150’ in the discus. He was also the valedictorian of his
graduating class with a 4.6 weighted GPA.
A three-star recruit out of high school, Wells was the No. 111 outside linebacker in the 2017 recruiting class and the No. 234 recruit in the state of Florida. He went
overlooked by most FBS programs and received only one offer from a Power 5 program: Colorado. Ultimately, Wells committed to the Buffs over nearby South
Florida. Wells graduated with degrees in accounting and finance and is pursuing his master’s degree in organizational leadership. His grandfather (Paul McCormick)
ran track at Florida. Wells accepted his invitation to the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl.

STRENGTHS: Experienced standing up or with his hand on the ground ... above-average initial burst to immediately challenge edge blockers with speed ... introduces his hands and reach very early in the rep ... rush moves work for him to win in different ways, including a swipe, rip or chop ... able to catch the wrists of blockers and shuck them away ... has a knack for finding passing lanes when he can’t get home ... sets a physical edge vs. the run and has a natural feel for run angles to leverage his side of the field ... his chase motor stays active in pursuit ... comfortable dropping into zones and staying cover aware ... started 27 consecutive games to finish his career. WEAKNESSES: Tweener size and skill set ... doesn’t have elite length, and blockers are able to significantly slow him down once they make contact ... his sequencing and secondary moves are not on an NFL level right now ... needs to use better flexibility through his hips as a rusher ... has average play strength, and doesn’t have the power to go through blockers when his leverage isn’t right ... will arrive hot as a tackler, which leads to the occasional miss ... long-armed blockers are able to move him from run fits on the edge ... will struggle to be disruptive in coverage vs. NFL skills players ... played minimal special teams outside of his freshman season ... missed two games because of concussion symptoms (September 2019). SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Colorado, Wells played a hybrid edge role in defensive coordinator Chris Wilson’s 4-3 base, lining up in both a two- and three-point stance. He was a downhill force player for the Buffs with 29 tackles for loss in 18 games the past two seasons, including an FBS-best 2.7 tackles for loss per game in 2020. Wells needs to develop his counter game, but when his upper body timing is connected to his first-step quickness, he can put blockers in vulnerable positions. Although his motor runs hot vs. the run, his anchor is inconsistent, and his coverage duties should be limited vs. NFL speed. Overall, Wells is a productive force player off the edge with his initial quickness and understanding of how to weaponize his hands, but his tweener skills lower his next-level ceiling. He projects best as a situational pass rusher or rotational “Sam” linebacker in a 3-4 scheme.

Tariquis Tisdale

Probably a lock for the practice squad. 6-5 285 and ran a 4.57 40

Flashes big plays but had a bad injury

For the 7th Rd and and an UDFA, Gunter and Tisdale are two good-looking athletes for EDGE Depth.

Mostly camp fodder but it will be interesting to see if they try to sneak LS Adomitis on to the practice squad

to get some practice with the punter/holder they seem to like from last year, OSU Drue Chrisman to kind of insert as a pair if Huber and Clark Harris decide to retire or die of old age.

Note:  Chrisman wears Number 4 ... The Mark of the Rotund One.

“Sneaking” him onto the practice squad isn’t the problem.  If another team’s LS suffers a significant injury (or loses it), they will just sign Adomitis off of our practice squad.  
 

Same goes for Drue Chrisman.

Agree need to get them on the roster somehow

The only way I can see that happening is if Harris and/or Huber "retire" before the start of the season.  Not taking the punter in the draft was a vote of confidence for OSU Drue and the long snapper is being portrayed as the Mother Teresa of football.

I'm going to say this.

 

He was a great addition to this board a few years ago around the draft and a few people had to be assholes and drive him away, now he's doing national TV and you folks are not.

 

Stew on that.


…is there any way we can instead drive the assholes away?  :shrug:

I didn't know he was doing national TV.  I thought he was selling and renting golf carts in MILF Heaven, The Villages Florida.  Or was that someone else?
