Draft Analyst Ethan Young: S Jamal Adams Not Worth Even A First Rounder?

Jamal Adams is a much better tackler than Malik Hooker. If Hooker let's up a catch he better learn how to drag down the receiver. That won't happen right away because honestly Hooker is one of the worst tacklers I've ever seen. If he can develop that Ed Reed presence of making QBs scared to throw it on him or even a Earl Thomas, he'll be worth a number 2 overall. I'd take Adams before Hooker honestly. Good luck to you if you're name is Hooker and you let up a catch underneath to Julio Jones, he'll make you look foolish as fug.

 

This guy should just stick to his day job, he sucks at analyzing talent. So he picked a couple of mistakes to highlight what he thinks Adams' weaknesses are. I bet that you can find more positive film than negative. Even more than Hooker, and that's saying a lot.

I think every NFL prospect is going to have more good film than bad. That's kind of a given.

I'm reevaluating Adams too, I just don't think he has pro bowl or all pro upside. What's his ceiling? An above average starter? Shouldn't we want more? His best pro comparison is Kam Chancellor. Kam is good, but I expect a players best case scenario to be better than that.

His comparison has been around a poor man's Weddle when you consider he's not the enforcing type, and even that is a slight stretch.

He doesn't contain the solid tackling consistency you want to see out of your strong safety. He does flash potential, but Ethan does bring a valid point that he also has plenty of bad from where the good came from.

I like Adams, but it blows my mind that half the Huddle would seemingly take him over Fournette.

I did it at first, but Adams is not an investment on defense worth taking over a offensive weapon like LF7 to help Cam.  The only way I would flip if it was some injury concerns.

Malik Hooker is better fit for the Panthers with Coleman and the LB corp. 

But again Fournete / OJ Howard > Hooker

Interesting you posted this, Ethan gives a lot of great insight and just won some up and coming draft analyst award too. He certainly made me rethink my opinion of adams

I'd still be fine with him but i really want obi in r2 or baker safety wise

LEONARD MOFO FOURNETTE @ 8

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
