Basham's arms are almost 2" longer than Rivers too. Don't underestimate how much of a factor that is in the bench press.
Plus, that longer arm length is going to be a much bigger aid to Basham in rushing the passer than a few extra reps would have been on the bench.
What in the world is happening to Desmond King? Wasn't he an early-2nd pick just a month or so back?
Would love to see him in the Nickel role. Still think he has potential to be a strong #2 in the future.
To be clear, this team needs players like Hooker. He is now the only ballhawk we have in the secondary. Leave the physicality and tackling to Geathers, Simon, Hankins, etc. This is a perfect fit with a guy that has the potential to be a stud right off the bat.
Hooker, Foster, Reddick, Allen, Harris, Barnett. Screw it. Trade down 3-4 picks and take one of those guys and gain a 3rd on top of it.
CB is in a great spot right now. Can't lose as long as we go defense. Would also be fine with Lamp.
