Aaron Maybin, Bills 2009 1st round Pick/11th Selection CUT

Aaron Maybin was released Monday after two unfullfilled years in Buffalo. Ourlads stood alone and gave Maybin a 3rd round grade when most draft “experts” had him in the First Round . What we said:

Aaron Maybin, Penn State 6036 249 4.80 Underclassman. Started ten games in career. Long arms and big hands. Sudden first step quickness. Struggles to get off blocks if he doesn’t beat you with his speed. Does not have a large body of work to evaluate. Was a reserve at the start of the 2008 season. Lacks the functional strength to separate and disengage the blocker. Very good athletic ability. Fast twitch with a lot of energy. Projects to a right outside linebacker in a 3- 4 scheme. Can be manhandled and pushed up the field. Undisciplined in his play. Has had several offside penalties and was benched. Guesses a lot on the count. Not an instinctive player. When he sees it he sprints to the ball. Lacks a big bag of pass rushing moves and tricks. Gets caught in traffic during pursuit. Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila is a comparable height, weight, and speed clone of Maybin. Gbaja-Biamila was drafted in the fifth round and still has problems in the run game. Made the most of his opportunity in 2008 with 20 tackles for loss and 12 sacks among his 49 total tackles. He also forced 3 fumbles. May be a situation pass rusher only. Edge speed:left 2.15, right 2.25. OSR:7/30. Third round. (A-35 1/ 4, H-10 1/8, BP-22, 10-1.60).
