English born and raised Jack Crawford is an Oakland Raider
Pats trade pick back to GB
Bucky Brooks' take: Crawford gives the Raiders a long, rangy defensive end to incorporate into their defensive line rotation. He will battle for playing time as a situational player.

Crawford started for three years at Penn State and has just five years of experience at his position. He was a late bloomer who moved to the United States from England to play basketball in high school before picking up football and, eventually, a scholarship from Penn State. He is a developmental prospect who can still fill out his incredible frame. He is a late-round prospect who could be taken earlier if a team can live with developing him. He is an inconsistent player at this point in his career. He barely showed up against Houston in the Ticket City Bowl and logged only one pass defensed -- a microcosm of his career at Penn State, where he generally just stood up and hoped to knock down balls with his frame.
Strengths Crawford has an amazing frame for defensive end. Taller than 6-foot-5, he is going to get his hands up and disrupt passes at the next level. Even if he has to develop early on, he can contribute right away in this aspect. He is athletic for his position and it shows when he is running down cross-field plays. He is adept at shedding blocks and getting to the ball. For a raw player, he has a surprising feel when working against the run game. He struggles against the pass and is still developing his technique to be more effective there, but his frame gives him plenty of potential. Weaknesses Crawford is still developing as a football player. It is obvious at times that he hasn't been playing the game very long; he has difficulty reading offensive lines and reacting to plays against the run. Once there, he is disruptive and effective, but he could be a deer in headlights early on at the next level. He is not very quick off the ball and will need to continue to develop his speed and burst. He looks nice but can't really burst in short areas to get to the quarterback and finish the play.
While I don't put too much into what they bench or how fast they run, his pro day stats are pretty impressive. Hopefully he can step in and be a dominant special teams player and in a couple of years become a solid safety.
I wonder if they try him in the running game.

Dennard reportedly was scouted to have 2nd round talent but fell far for charecter issues. Mcdummy was ripping him at the draft for lack of focus and being easily fooled by the double move, so do alot of pro corners geez.
He could have extreme value for the pick if he does make the team and contributes. Hightower looks like the key component to this whole draft class, i think if he's a hit it makes everyone elses job easier.
