I just watched You Tube clip on him. Wow. Between Okereke,Banogu and D. Leonard this will be the "Big Blue Wrecking Crew". I never heard of him.  He is very fast like Leonard.  The season could not come soon enough.   I saw 2 postseason polls and we are in ranked in the top 5. Colin Cowherd has us ranked #2.    Patriots #1  I don't know about that.

Well, with less talent on both sides of the ball last year they went on a hell of a run. You'd think with another year/offseason under their belts, and adding Houston, Funchess, Ware, and the draft picks, they're better suited to continue that level of play. I can't think of 5 more talented rosters.

thanks for the vid.

really loved the tape, but always try not to get to pumped by a highlight reel.

going to look at has game log and see how he performed vs different teams and different OLs.

without question, dude has some great raw athleticism.

@ 2:28 I like him running down a RB 

 

 

 

This guy reminds me so much of Darius Leonard. I can't wait to watch this guy what speed he has for his size.

We had some good clips of Bjorn Werner if I recall. I'm optimistic on all players until they prove themselves one way or another. Anyway, must go, meeting up with my sister, Debbie D for a coffee.

Bjorn looked stiff as a board and very mechanical in his videos... I think a lot of people saw that very early on!

Wasn't TJ Green known as an athlete who played football but didn't have a strong suite of skills for his forecasted position?

 

If our pass rusher doesn't have a lot of pass rushing moves but is a great athlete who could therefore be used in various ways, I'm not sure why my optimism should outweigh my concerns.

This guy has great instincts and a relentless motor. His pass rush moves may be limited but that is teachable to a great athlete. Mr Mathis? Your new pupil. 

TJ Green had zero instincts and a so so motor. That is not teachable.

Bjorn was the poster child for Loafing which our DC does not tolerate.

Werner simply wasn’t talented. He failed for that reason, not for lack of effort. But WHAT did Grigson see in this guy? No bend whatsoever. No instincts. Just awful.

I have listened to two interviews with this guy. I am super impressed. He is super smart and really understands the game of football.  I think this guy is going to be a star. His football IQ is odd the charts.

    • I'd be surprised with the committment to the run if we spent much capital on a WR for the 3rd year in a row.  But if they think there is a stud out there, who knows.  Campbell I don't think is" injury prone" necessarily, last weeks hit was just unfortuneate and broken foot is also usually and accident rather than injury proneness whatever that means.  Assuming he's 100% next year, I think they'd be pretty comfortable with the playmaking potential of PC.     I could totally see them pick up a stud TE though with some captal.  I like MAC too and hope he takes away the neccesity of a TE.   But Houston is old too and we probably are really going to need another edge guy.
    • Roster Moves: S Ibraheim Campbell and CB Tremon Smith... Elevated To Active Roster;   WR Parris Campbell & S Malik Hooker ...Placed On IR;   TEs Hale Hentges & Ethan Wolf ...Signed To Practice Squad   and released TE Charlie Taumoepeau from the practice squad.   https://www.colts.com/news/ibraheim-campbell-tremon-smith-parris-campbell-malik-hooker-roster-moves
    • Unfortunately there hasn't been much meaningful college football so far so my watching has been limited too.    From limited watching this year and some from last year, here are the QBs: - Trevor Lawrence is looking like a complete beast early in the season... true, it's against bad competition, but even then you can see him making some awesome NFL type throws with accuracy, anticipation and great arm talent. I think he will be amazing in the league.  - Trey Lance - very intriguing dual-threat QB from North Dakota State. Had 28 passing TDs and 0INT last year in his redshirt freshman season and ran for over 1000 yards and 10+ more rushing TDs. He might not play this year because of COVID. Interesting to see how that affects his stock in the draft. -Justin Fields - another dual threat QB, who had great year last year. He's showing more than just athleticism too - he has the arm talent to win not just by running but also by passing the ball - there is some hype for Brock Purdy... I watched his first game this season... wasn't impressed. IMO he's not a 1st round QB based on what I saw, BUT it's possible it was just a weird game, so I will have to watch more to be sure. -Jamie Newman - he opted out of this season after transfering to Georgia... so... I will have to go back to last year's tape to watch him more intently.   OT: Penei Sewell - best OT coming into the draft last several years. Looks great. Prototypical size, lenght, athleticism...great technique. He has it all IMO. DL: Gregory Rousseau(DE), raw but very athletic edge rusher.... Marvin Wilson - interior lineman with some pass-rush upside, Kwity Paye - another EDGE with insane athleticism... there are some reports that he ran the 3 cone in 6.36... this is madness if true - it would rank 2nd all time in the drill... this is for all positions and he's an EDGE who's listed at 6'4" 272lbs. 
    • Does Blake Bortles facts make a comeback?     Also my wife and I have just started binge watching this comedy called "The Good Place" and one of the characters is a really dumb Jags fan and he is always playing up Bortles as some great player.  It's hilarious.
