Your Favorite Player After The Combine

76 posts in this topic

Jordan Matthews. Showed he has the speed, to go along with his route running and catching skills, and also that he's bulked up some.

Pierre Desir. Might be a no-name player, but will dominate on Sundays. He's the type of long, range-y DBs that will be the norm in the NFL before long.

I agree.

Saw Janis workout and was impressed. Fast, fast, fast guy with very good hands. I think he'll be a nightmare for opponents coming off the slot.

The one knock of Janis is that he can't catch worth poo, I don't know where the good hands thing came in.

I'm not sure what you mean with Landry. His height is a concern for the type of receiver he is. He was never a burner, nor does he have great acceleration, so he must make a career out of contested catches. Hard to out-jump anyone when you're 5-11 with a poor vertical. It's not like he'll be taller on a better day. His 40 was slower than expected, but I don't think scouts expected to see anything more than a 4.6 to start with.

 

 

So you're saying he is short and slow....got it.

Yes. I don't know how anyone can deny that.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
