One of My Favorite Prospects: Jonathan Cyprien

49 posts in this topic

I think picking him should satisfy most people He is a probable starter day 1 and does not have a steep learning curve compared to the other positions of need (WR, DT)

Exactly and that is something we should be targeting with our first round pick. Cyprien fills a big need, is an instant upgrade over what we have at the position, and can come in day 1 and start and make a big impact in our secondary.

NO, WE NEED DT, MORE HARUKI NAKAMARU AND SHERROD MARTIN PLEASE

/s

I pray that Cyprien is a our pick, he is better than Barron from last year who was taken in the top 10.

If he's the pick, so be it. I would rather go with someone who played against better competition with the first, and try and get Rambo, Swearinger or Thomas later, but I'm not an expert.

I hate the "better/tougher competition in the SEC" excuse. Those players in that conference is no better than any other one in another conference. The only thing separates them is that its a conference built with a lot of better teams. Id love to see a Nick Saban or Les Miles defense having to play a Chip Kelly's Oregon Offense or USC week in and week out. A lot of these Nick Saban's players goes on and do nothing in the pro; I know you never brought up Saban's name but thats my point.

You take the best player. Not the player from the best conference.

Well I just picked the Duke game to watch at random. He was pretty awful in that game, I hope that wasn't indicative of his normal performances.

His Duke performance was lackluster (one of the very few games where he bombed) but you should see his Louisville performance. Cyprien was all over the RBs and WRs.

I hear you, but I can't see justifying taking Cyprien over some of the WR talent at 14, much less Richardson, Williams, Lotulelei, Chance, and some others that may be available at 14. I am not sure that he is better than Vacarro or any other of the guys that I mentioned before. If he were flat out the BPA, that would be a different story. But who can say that he'll end up better than any of the other top players at safety in this draft?

Here's how we know Cyprien is superior to Vaccaro, Jonathan rarely takes bad angles and knows how to properly wrap up his target. He's also very good in the open field. Vaccaro, on the other hand, is the complete opposite.

I believe that Cyprien is up there with the guys you mentioned above except Star.

Cyprien is the type of player that you plug and play day1 for the next 8 years. He will solidify the SS position for years. I dont think we'll go with a Rambo or Vaccaro, Godfrey will be moving back to FS. We have met with Elam, Cyprien, and Thomas all of whom are SS.Though, I have just learned that Vaccaro is visiting tomorrow. I still think that SS is the position we're targeting. Im positive Rivera is not going into the 2013 season with Campbell or Mitchell (camp body?) at SS.

    • LOL. Well neither do you man- you're haphazardly speculating at best. I have vastly more evidence that Pryor would not be the starter and Mike Adams would First off: Mike Adams is better.  Second: Clearly the Panthers wanted Adams, probably going to start the guy they wanted.  Third: Mike Adams is a veteran presence just like the last successful guy to start at SS was for us: Harper: who would still be here if he had any gas left in the tank. The front office and coaches loved that veteran leadership he provided. Harper was starting games he had no business too- because our coaches loved how he positively helped our team. Guess who that replacement veteran leader is: Mike Adams.  Four: Calvin Pryor has been so bad the Jets are willing to give him up for "anything" and drafted safeties with their first and second round picks. That does not sound like the kind of guy that's out beating a consecutive Pro Bowl player.  Five: We already have a project safety on our team: Tre Boston   If you give up anything Pryor you have no idea how negotiations work in the first place. Jet's have no leverage here. Pryor is likely getting cut. 
    • blah blah blah our best WR who averages a 1,000 yards per season is a fat arse..trade him A.S.A.P.! Swole Bones is going be a future HOF TE...just give him one more year to develop? huddle logic :)
