Winston Guy and Danny Trevathan were drafted only six spots apart in the sixth round of the NFL draft yesterday. Here are the details according to Cat Scratches:
Fittingly, the two heard their names called just a few minutes apart in the 2012 NFL Draft. Guy and Trevathan were each selected in the sixth round of the draft, with Guy going to the Seattle Seahawks at 181st overall and Trevathan seven picks later to the Denver Broncos.
[Trevathan] joins a growing list of former Wildcats in Denver. Anthony "Champ" Kelly is in the team's personnel department while tight end Jacob Tamme, defensive end Jeremy Jarmon and linebacker Wesley Woodyard are on the roster.
Amazing how many former Wildcats are now members of the Broncos, and SB Nation's Denver site, Mile High Report, seem to be pretty excited about Trevathan's selection:
Troy Hufford scouts, in comparison to newly re-signed and possible competition Wesley Woodyard:
Trevathan can cover, blitz, and tackle in the running game. I don't think Woody is better than Trevathan in any of those respects... Trevathan seems like the answer for the Gronkowski's of the world.
Bottom line, I'm even more excited now to get these guys into training camp and pads and see how they measure up against their first competition, their new teammates. Can't wait for Kaptain Kirk's training camp reports on these guys. What are your initial reactions?
Here is what SB Nation's Seattle site, Field Gulls, had to say about the Guy selection:
Round 6 - Pick 181 - Winston Guy, SS, Kentucky
6'1, 218 lbs, 4.70 40
Is this Guy fast like the others? No. So don't say that Pete and John only drafted speedsters! But he was a tackling machine (10 per game and 22nd in the nation total) and is an "in the box safety" that will sit behind Kam Chancellor and possibly has a future at linebacker.
We needed depth at linebacker and at safety and we might have just gotten both by taking Winston Guy.
Congratulations to Guy and Trevathan. May their NFL careers be long and successful.
