  1. Suck for Sam......OR who else

    Though not in the same conversation as the rest as of today but maybe one of these guys could step up and have a Trubisky type of climb Just to add to that list : Mike White WESTERN KENTUCKY Baker Mayfield OKLAHOMA Logan Woodside TOLEDO Jake Browning WASHINGTON Justin Herbert OREGON (probably not next year though) Quinton Flowers SOUTH FLORIDA J.T. Barrett OHIO STATE Christian Chapman SAN DIEGO STATE Lamar Jackson LOUISVILLE Wilton Speight MICHIGAN Nick Fitzgerald MISSISSIPPI STATE Austin Allen ARKANSAS Jarrett Stidham AUBURN Chase Litton MARSHALL
  2. Stanley Havili out of USC. Was more of a receiving FB rather than a between the tackles blocker. In short yardage situations, they used to always run a playaction to the left and have him run the flat to the right. He ended up averaging about 2 catches and 1 carry a game. Not a lot but his TD receiving rate was above 10%.
  3. TE Jordan Leggett

    Leggett actually reminds me a lot of ASJ. Big, athletic, ex-basketball player types that are known more for their catching ability than their blocking. For both of them, they have effort issues which leads to being seen as inadequate blockers. Leggett had 9 drops in his last 3 years (109 passes). Another positive for Leggett: "Third-most total snaps played (2,263) over the last three years in the tight end draft class and fifth-most college playoff snaps played (327) in college football history." - PFF
  4. ArDarius Stewart Player Comparison Height 5'11" 5'10" Weight 204 194 Arm 32 1/2" 30 3/8" Hands 9 3/8" 9 3/4" 40 4.49 4.48 Vert 34 41 Broad 124 123 20 yd Shuttle 4.21 4.35 Grade 5.79 5.77 STRENGTHS Brings a physical play demeanor to the field at all times. Has takeoff to push cornerbacks into an aggressive backpedal. Karate fighting hands ward off jams and redirect attempts inside his route. Varies route speed to create uneasiness in defender. Sells route fakes with sharp head turns that tilt cornerbacks. Has a gas gear to race past defender and climb quickly over the top. Talented ball tracker with skills to win the deep ball on a consistent basis when matched one on one. Body control for mid-air adjustments is superb and his hands are like clamps. Very strong player and can take the ball away from corners when he needs to. Has kick return talent that translates into the NFL. Competitive runner after catch with skills that mirror a running back. Will elude certain tacklers and punish others. When asked to block and sustain, he's willing to do his part. WEAKNESSES Burly through the hips and doesn't have the build of the typical receiver. Saw 70 percent of his yardage gained come after the catch. Benefited from screens, pop passes and reverses. Routes could use more sharpness at his break points. Wasn't asked to create route separation on short and intermediate routes very often. Will need to work aggressively back to the ball as a pro. Can you get too cute with the ball in his hands and run himself out of yardage. There is still room for improvement with his hands. STRENGTHS Silky smooth with terrific route quickness. Plays with consistent play speed into and out of his breaks and can hit the gas out of his breaks to create instant separation for anticipatory throws. Runs variety of routes from the slot. Almost impossible to stay with his "whip" route. Clean with his double moves and if cornerbacks bite, is able to get over the top to track throws and run under them for the big play. Will adjust routes to ball placement. Not afraid over the middle. Born to catch a football. Just eight drops with 253 catches and is able to adjust to high, low or behind him for difficult catches. Loves to compete. Willing to jump into a cornerback and get after him as a blocker from slot. Takes pride in his work ethic and scouts say his personal and football character is extremely high. Was a talented basketball player and long-jumper in high school. WEAKNESSES Not very big and lack of play strength will show up from time to time. Won't see as many free releases in pros. Strong cornerbacks with good feet can cause issues for him in press coverage. Can be redirected in his routes and will get trapped against the sideline at times. More quick than fast and reliant upon clever routes to get over the top against true speed. Not much of a catch radius. Can get too cute with amount of moves off release or underneath routes. Stewart must improve his hands but has the attributes of a typical west coast offense wide receiver (think John Taylor). Like the "Body control" comment and his competitive nature. Player comparison: New York Giants 2016 2nd round pick: Sterling Shepard. Does not have Eli throwing to him but was taken 1 round later and some special teams value if he cannot get into the starting lineup early on.
  5. Chad Hansen WR - 4th round

    Chad Hansen Player Comparison Height 6'2" 6'3" Weight 202 212 Arm 32 1/8" 32 1/8" Hands 10 1/8" 10 1/2" 40 4.53 4.57 Bench 11 18 Vert 35 35 Broad 119 126 3 Cone 6.74 6.8 20 yd Shuttle 4.13 4.13 Grade 5.68 5.81 Hansen: STRENGTHS Maneuvers around route redirection in space and keeps his route on time. Works back to the throw. Has some talent after catch on wide receiver screens. Drive off the line and into his routes is consistent no matter which level he is going to work. Good awareness near sidelines. Able to drop his feet in-bounds when crowded against the boundary. Plays with good strength and physicality when mugged in his routes. Has fluid, powerful strides to burst past cornerbacks on vertical routes. Natural ball-tracker. Plus body control for ball adjustments in any direction. Hands are strong and can secure in traffic. Didn't have to run much of the route tree, but showed willingness to work the middle. Gives physical, extended effort as run-blocker punching into cornerbacks frame and locking out. Able to make first tackler miss and accelerate into open field. WEAKNESSES Upright off the snap and into his routes. Is eventual into breaks and allows cornerback time to gear down and transition back to the ball. Can be jammed up by strong press corners. Doesn't create enough consistent separation with his intermediate routes. Route work at Cal was basic. Will face his share of contested catches on the pro level. Allows throws to crowd his frame. Needs to get better at using body to shield throws from defenders. Player Comparison: STRENGTHS Has the triangle numbers (height/weight/speed) of a WR1. Drives off the line of scrimmage selling his vertical push and forcing cornerbacks into passive position. Uses plus separation quickness at top of his route to provide comfortable passing window. Hands catcher who catches away from his frame when possible. Wasn't asked to work vertically much, but tape looks like he has a shot. Has the juice after catch to make defenses pay the price for missed tackles. Real red zone target who stacks the defender, tracks throw out of quarterback's hand and makes late play on the ball over top of defender. Has desired traits and flashes the tools. WEAKNESSES Struggles with footwork out of press release spending excessive time trying to fake and shake cornerbacks. Still figuring out this whole "route running" thing. Needs to improve playing through contact and adjusting routes appropriately. Still thinking rather than just playing. Will have to work back to the throw more often on NFL level. Won't win over quarterbacks with inability to rescue the off-­target throws. Plays with passive field demeanor against aggressive cornerbacks. Won't go looking for work as run blocker if he doesn't have to. Doesn't appear to offer special teams value. Hansen has a little more work to do than the player comparison with creating separation, hand catching away from his body and better use of his body. But I do like that the scouting report pointing out that Hansen has "Plus body control for ball adjustments in any direction" and that he "Gives physical, extended effort as run-blocker punching into cornerbacks frame and locking out", something that the other prospect had as a weakness. Player comparison: New Orleans Saints 2016 2nd round draft pick: Michael Thomas Hansen doesn't have Brees throwing to him but he was taken 2 rounds later and maybe John Morton can work some of the same magic he did with Thomas.
  6. ArDarius Stewart must read evaluation

    I wonder if Morton had anything to do with this pick considering his history with Kiffin. "Strengths Brings a physical play demeanor to the field at all times. Has takeoff to push cornerbacks into an aggressive backpedal. Karate fighting hands ward off jams and redirect attempts inside his route. Varies route speed to create uneasiness in defender. Sells route fakes with sharp head turns that tilt cornerbacks. Has a gas gear to race past defender and climb quickly over the top.

Can you get too cute with the ball in his hands and run himself out of yardage. There is still room for improvement with his hands. Alabama-tough and plays the game like a grown man. Stewart is an extremely competitive target who has been a catch-and-run option as well as a deep ball threat, but he has the tools to become a solid starter who can be effective in all areas of the field. While Stewart could come in and compete for early kick return duties, some teams may view his run after the catch skills as his true value-added talent." - nfl.com Sounds like a great west coast offense type receiver. Also, sounds like a slow Brandin Cooks.
  7. Davis Webb?

    Got the feeling it may be Webb but hoping for Godwin.
  8. ^^^The official 2017 NFL Draft Day Thread^^^

    I don't see a safety on that list.
  9. Safety or CB

    I guess the Jets felt like Safety were the guys to improve this secondary. Hopefully they can still pick up a CB later in this draft.
  10. Draft Rumors

    On Dalvin Cook: "So the reason as far as I'm told (his slide) relates to some of the people that he hangs out with off the field," Rapoport said. "It's more upbringing than character if that makes any sense. Because at this point, from what I'm told, the on-field character is very good, considered to be at Florida State an excellent teammate, a very hard worker. But some of it is the situations he puts himself in off the field. He has promised teams that the people around him are not coming with him to the NFL, and we'll see how that puts him as far as the standing goes in the second round today." http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000803932/article/dalvin-cooks-slide-due-to-offfield-concerns
  11. Cal QB Davis Webb

  12. Best part about drafting Jamal Adams

    Maybe the Jets will play more 4-2-5 with 3 safeties, cover 3. Wilkerson, Williams, McLendon, Richardson (assuming he is not traded) as the front 4. Jenkins as the "Sam", Lee as the "Mike" and Pryor playing the "Will", Adams the Rover and Gilchrist (if / when he is healthy) playing the deep safety. Just have figure out the corner situation and this could be a viable lineup. Harris on 1st and possibly 2nd, and bringing in Pryor on passing situations. At least they would gain a little speed with the underneath zone.
  13. Jets 2nd Round Pick?

    Agreed that they should give Hackenberg a shot. The other guy that the Jets were highly interested in early in the draft season was Jordan Willis.
  14. Jets 2nd Round Pick?

    Robinson more than Lamp, but agreed offensive line would greatly improved by one of these guys. King may be gone, but Wilson would be a good pick. One player that has been gaining buzz but I did not see here was Joshua Dobbs. Maybe will be there in the 3rd but I think he is in the conversation with Kizer and Webb as one of the next QBs to come off the board. Not saying the Jets should be looking at the QBs but if they were prefer Dobbs over Webb.
  15. Call the pick

    Just to be different: Trade back and the Jets select Derek Barnett
