DTs, CBs, & OLBs -- gathering the field

33 posts in this topic

I dislike Jenkins' measurables, he looks like a bobble head doll with his helmet on, he's skinny as a rail, but he played very well last year. I'm not even gonna count this year against the JV league. But my gut feeling is that he's a very good college player but won't it won't transition to the pros. I would take a shot on him in the 2nd though.

If we really want a punt returner, I'd go hands down without question: Joe Adams from Arkansas

I'd be ok getting rid of Tutu/Edwards for him

I would love Joe Adams in the 6th round.. man I think he has a very high upside.. same with his team mate on the Razorbacks.. I like both of them.

I think Janoris Jenkins is Pacman 2.0, I'd like to stay away from him.

I think Joe Adams will go higher after the process and if we dont go WR with the 1st i wouldnt mind using a 4th on him. the guy has great speed, plus he is a ST demon. my sleeper at WR is Tommy Streeter tho from da U.

its hard to picture the draft when we don't know what defense we are going to run....

Assuming 3-4 though

1st Claiborne of course

2nd round i love Dontari Poe (Maybe next kris jenkins with training) Dont'a Hightower, Vinny Curry, Whitney Mercillus, Lavonte David (if we move him to safety)

Hopefully if morris is off the board we can trade down in that case take the best DT available then CB and Outside line backer in the second round!

You should probably not assume 3-4. Because the team is sticking with a base 4-3.

1st-Claiborne

2nd- Dontari Poe/Thompson or a OLB

Is a great draft to me no question, then a S in the 4th.

I'd be down for that. I think the combine is going to send Poe into the 1st though.

i agree with this a lot but don't like poe if we stay with a 4-3. Most of our good pressure is coming in the 3-4 base with Keiser and or applewhite as edge OLBs.

Someone help me, but I honestly don't see the fascination over Janoris Jenkins. I've seen some of his highlight videos, and nothing there makes me believe he's worth a high draft pick. Of course he also has a history off the field that draws many red flags. Besides, we already have a Janoris Jenkins type corner in Brandon Hogan. Why draft another Brandon Hogan? Now I'm a South Carolina fan. Last year I saw Alshon wipe the floor with Jenkins all game, and this was with Garcia throwing the ball. After that game, I'm amazed people are still on the Jenkins bandwagon.

The thing is you can't really watch his highlight films to get the full effect. Because if you really wanted to see a true highlight film, it would consist of throws to the opposite side of the field. He is in all likelihood the best cover corner in this years draft. And Brandon Hogan is no Janoris Jenkins. Not sure what you are talking about Alshon wiping the floor with him. Jenkins held him to under his average when guarding him. And Garcia was actually a decent QB last year.

    • I have to apologize to @TheRed , not for what I have said, but most certainly how I have said it. He was right that this isn't how I normally post and my passion for the subject matter got the best of me and left me with the just the worst. I should have said, "Please, you have obviously got an informed opinion and a desire to get the best out of this country we share, so don't pass up on your opportunity to cast a ballot. It doesn't have to be for every race, but find someone or something you can get behind and put your votes there." One single vote may not matter in a presidential, or even gubernatorial, election, but don't let that turn you into thinking the voter doesn't matter. Look, act and vote local -- these are the races that have the most impact on your life and where you have the most impact, too. A change at the local level does reverberate up the ladder, it is how all great movements start. I won't get on you or anyone else about not voting again, but please, in exchange, could you just commit to casting a ballot next time your local elections roll along? You are full of smart ideas and are passionate about a number of issues, don't let that go to waste. You might very well actually improve things. And Lord, we sure do need that, don't we? Once again, my apologies to @TheRed and @NanuqoftheNorth for going above and beyond in calling you out. You deserve a better shake than I gave you.
    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4
