Carolina Panthers select: CB Jayron Hosley

Apr 03 2012 06:57 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
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.

As a VT fan, I love this guy. He would always be in play for a big play on D. However in the NFL, I think he's best suited for the Nickelback. He is just too small, but very quick.
would rather have Gilmore, Trumaine Johnson or obviously Janoris Jenkins
He is very light. He has very long arms for a short CB, however.

5'10 is not what scares me, but when facing bigger WRs he gets pushed around. Streeter abused him, Quick had a decent game on him, Hill as well. Givens had big game on him, and they are around the same size(Givens and Hosley). but the guy is a ball hawk you have to love that aspect of his game.


Good info. I am hoping for Josh Robinson, but I am also high on Hogan.
Can we please stop looking at CBs that can also return kicks? Our defense is in shambles. We need CBs that are actually CBs. We got a CB last season that could return kicks and a WR that can return kicks, and now neither of them are considered when talking about the positions they were originally drafted for. What exactly are we solving here? Can we consider players that actually have potential in their "main" position first instead of being a useless combination of nothing and 1 punt return for a TD in college? No more nickelback returnmen plox.

Hurney has the huddle bookmarked. Stop throwing him off.
I like Hosley. Have him as our 2nd round pick.

I dont like him more than Jenkins though, but I dont think Jenkins will be there for our 2nd pick.

Wish there was some way to get another 2nd or 3rd and grab Trumaine Johnson as well and I think we would be set!
I've watched him whole career along with Coale, Boykin, etc. at Tech and always thought he'd be a great pro. He's not butterfingered as someone said. That Michigan game was complete crap and we had that won. We got completely fugged in the as$

Anyhoo, yeah Hosley has a nose for the ball and I think will produce in the NFL. He has the "it" factor imo

i like Robinson better as well, but i would not complain if we snatched up Hosley.
Morris Claiborne is as good as gone. The only other corner that is worth looking at if we stay at nine is Dre Kirkpatrick.
Hosley isn't butterfingered. That Stanford "PIck-Six" was a little behind him and he still made a play for the ball. It would have been his SECOND pick on Luck if he held on. His strengths are positioning and attacking the ball at the highest point. He is very coachable. His size and some top end speed are a concern. He's not very useful in Run Support because of his lack of weight and size, however at the line of scrimmage he will usually be able to slow them down long enough for help to arrive.

He played his Junior year injured. A lot of the big plays he allowed were a result of bad safety play or being injured on the play. (Against Miami and Clemson he got injured and left the game) If you watched the Michigan game, you'd completely understand what I'm talking about in regards to safety play.

He's 2nd-3rd Round talent. His return ability relies on shiftiness and he has the speed to break one, but he doesn't have the top end speed get there quick.
Charlie Campbell is that you?
Over janoris?

This^ Jayron Hosley? yes please
State fans should remember what he did to Russell Wilson. Guy is a pure baller and 2nd round for him is about right.
VT produces some good DBs for the NFL if anything.
Much rather spend our 2nd rounder on Coby Fleener or Jerel Worthy if Stephon Gilmore isn't available.
His wingspan and Leap are the selling point here. He's not a bad CB at all. I wouldn't mind him in the second at all.
Why do people keep complaining about 5-10 cornerbacks, claiming they are too small? Have you been paying attention to the position? Most NFL cornerbacks are under 6 feet tall.

Guys like gamble, peterson and nnamdi are all considered exceptionally big for the position and hard to come by with their level of talent.
He's too small, and doesn't like to tackle. No thanks.
He'll probally be the best CB still left.... why not.
Wouldn't be against it, he fills two-needs plus he can easily fill out 10+ lbs by season time.
I wouldn't complain.
this too small thing is so inane

Its always relative to other things such as quickness, awareness, leaping ability, extension...etc etc

Aahahah he's too small

fug that noise into a donkey's as$
