Carolina Panthers Select: Cb Jayron Hosley

47 posts in this topic

Jayron Hosley

5-10 , 178

CB / PR Virginia Tech

With their second round pick the Carolina Panthers address two positions of need, cornerback and punt returner.

As a cornerback, Hosley is a ball hawk with 12 interceptions and 20 passes broken up over the past two seasons. He played through an injured hamstring and late season concussion, but still managed to start play through the pain. He plays with an attitude and isn't afraid to challenge larger receivers. Had 4 breakups in the Sugar Bowl against Michigan, doesn't disappear in big games.

As a punt returner averaged just over 11 yards per return in 3 season. Doesn't have blazing speed but has the shiftiness to improve field position with consistency. Armanti Edwards does not appear to be a legitimate option in the return game, which leaves the door open for Jayron.

The Panthers need some skill at he corner back position opposite Chris Gamble. Jayron Hosley did nothing but produce in his college career, even while playing through pain. He is my pick.

But his final game at Virginia Tech will be remembered for what could have been.

In the second half, Hosley appeared to have two interceptions off Michigan’s Denard Robinson. On the first one he appeared to make a diving catch, but after an official review, the play was overturned. On Michigan’s next series Hosley appeared to snag another interception but officials called him for pass interference.

It was a case of bowl game déjà vu for Hosley, who dropped what could have been a pick six on Stanford’s Andrew Luck early in the second half that could have changed the momentum in Virginia Tech’s 40-12 Orange Bowl loss to the Cardinal in 2010.

Just what we need, another butterfingered DB who almost makes the big catch in a big game.

No he's 5-11. That's ONE WHOLE INCH. Don't you know that one inch makes all the difference between the best CB in the NFL and a complete failure?

No #thatswhatshesaid

Close- 5'11" but the logic remains the same, it isn't just size but positioning, speed and being able to jump at the right time that determines whether a smaller corner can cover a larger receiver.

Wouldn't doubt it. The panthers have talked to him also. Would love to have him.

Revis is like 5'11". Asante is 5'10". I guess

Hosley probably is a better cover guy than Kirk who is 6'2". I'd take he best cb over some stupid physical attribute.
