Ben Banogu

Recommended Posts

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.

I really love this pick. I was hoping for the DE from Iowa, but the fact that Ben can play multiple positions is what sold me.

I recall going to Lions games and when Suh made a big play the crowd would yell "SUUUUUUH"

 

So, we'll be able to yell...BAAANOOOGUUUUU

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Very athletic but doesn't show a variety of moves rushing the passer.

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 pick will either crash really hard and look stupid or he will be star. I don’t think there is a middle ground. This pick is very ambitious by Ballard.

if it crashes it won't be that big of a loss being that it was a mid second round pick.

Mid 2nd round picks are pretty valuable though...

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.

    • Not a FA as yet even, and then it would be a post in the FA section. Locking for now.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.
