Troy Pride....Speedster

Recommended Posts

Nice post OP.  Standing out on ST is how a depth guy like Pride can have a lasting career in the NFL.

It's also been so long time coming since we had CB depth.  

Can't wait to see what Phil Snow can do with a full deck on defense this year.

Me too.  I think Pride is slightly faster than Taylor, but a little smaller...they add great depth.  The potential is there. 

C'mon Snow, take us there.

I haven't heard much about Pride yet this year. He was really thrown straight into the fire last season and without any pre-season or offseason to prepare much. Talk about a raw deal.

Hopefully being more seasoned with a OTA's and a full offseason to prepare he will step up!

Baptism by fire.  He took a lot of lumps last year as a rookie...but that D finished pretty strong.

Pride is in dog fight for staying on the roster. Panthers added Horn, AJ, Taylor and vet Melvin. Panthers mainly carry 4, sometimes 5 CBs and Djak should make the team as well. AJ is missing the first two weeks and that may help Prides chances. Amazing to see where the CB group was at the 2019 off-season compared to now. 

STO is another one whos fighting for a roster spot as well, good problem to have...

He was a fifth rounder. If he ends up a 4th or 5th CB and a special teams stalwart, we did well.

Why? He tested very well athletically at the combine and pro days. That is why we drafted him.

I had no idea Pride was that fast. 

 

I had no idea either.  Its why I posted it.

I think its because he was stuck in zone a lot last year and our secondary, well, was bad.

    • Was in a situation where I had to start him in my fantasy league last night (it was between him and a banged up Big Ben) Thankfully, it worked out well for me. 25 fantasy points thanks to those rushing TDs
    • In terms of the RB yup. Could try to use Tremble or just Darnold...he's not a small guy. Not as good as Cam but clearly a better option than our tiny ass RBs
    • I consider our defense to be trending in the elite direction.  So to compliment, I want to really see what the top teams have in the league.   The easy answer being Pat Mahomes or Tom Brady, but it's worth consideration. (I may miss some top guys, but you get the picture) The notable cores: Buffalo QB-Josh Allen *Tandem backfield WR-Stefon Diggs LT-Dion Dawkins C-Mitch Morse Cleveland QB-Baker Mayfield RB-Nick Chubb+Kareem Hunt *Tandem backfield WR-...questionable TE - Trio approach OL-Bitonio+Tretter+Conklin+Wills Chiefs QB-Pat Mahomes RB-Meh, might as well be committee WR-Hill TE-Kelce OL- Brown+Thuney+Humphrey TB QB-Brady RB-*Underperforming tandem backfield WR-Evans & Godwin TE-Gronk OL- Wirfs & Smith Arizona QB-Kyler Murray WR-The entire Group SF It's the OL, Deebo & Kittle DAL Overall balanced attack w/Dak, Elliott, Pollard, Lamb, & Cooper So.... My takeaway: You either need a top flight QB, a top flight OL, or a good enough QB-Receiving w/a few top OL that makes the package click.  Some of these have top RB talent, but are any really workhorses? Who has the overworked RBs? Us, Minny, Titans (good team, awful D), Cinci, Saints... Dallas has even adjusted and Pollard is getting more carries depending on the matchup.  In light of the CMC discussion, it is worth considering how we prioritize the build that continues (and looking quite good at the moment regardless of injuries) We're getting close.  And I don't think we're that off, and the next focus should be OL without question. Finally, after all these years.  OL OL OL OL OL
