Is Rock ya Sin already as good as Vontae Davis?

Recommended Posts

Seems like he is getting  mad hype and I'm wondering  just how good is he.

Not only haven't the Colts played a regular season game....    we haven't even played a PRE-season game yet.

 

Ya think maybe you're asking this question a few months too soon?

 

Hype in early pre-sesason is just that.......    hype.    Try not to read too much into it.

 

Just enjoy camp for what it is.     Seriously.     Honestly.

As good as Vontae Davis as he is right now?  Too early to tell, but probably. 

 

As good as Vontae Davis was in his prime?  Too early to tell, but doubtful.

Seeing as he hasn’t even played a pre-season game yet why don’t we wait on saying he’s better than maybe the best corner the Indianapolis Colts have had.

I’d say he’s better than Davis at this point.  

 

Since Davis retired in the middle of a game last September, he probably isn’t in near the shape that Rock is in now.

At the moment, no, since he hasn't played any games. Does he have the potential? Yes. Will he? Only time will tell.

Training camp is a horrible way to judge new players. We've been burnt by the hype so many times I don't pay attention anymore

It is going to be fun to see him in the Browns practices and games.  Especially if we put him up against OBJ.

Vontae seemed he was weak emotionally and Rock seems like he is a ......wait for it.......rock. So I’ll give him that.

Stephen, I like your enthusiasm and I am going to say that he is undoubtedly as good as Vontae Davis in his prime. Not just that, he could probably rival Darrelle Revis before he’s even taken a live snap. I have at least seen no evidence to suggest otherwise.

Although it is far too easy (and appropriate) to make a comment about how it is too early to ask that question, I'll bypass it, and actually answer your question.

 

No.  He is not as good as Vontae Davis.

Comparatively speaking: Vontae Davis was a multiple year starter, the #1 CB on the team, with a Pro Bowl nomination.  Rock Ya-Sin has not even cracked the starting lineup yet.  He's currently duking it out with Quincy Wilson for the #3 spot.  The #1 CB is Pierre Dasir, and he doesn't have a Pro Bowl bid to his name.  So, no.  Rock isn't as good as Vontae yet.  He first needs to make the starting lineup, then beat Dasir for the #1 spot, and then get a Pro Bowl bid.  Then, we can start talking about comparisons to Vontae.

 

But I'm crossing my fingers for him!

All the kidding aside, it’s obviously too soon to judge the kid. But when TY Hilton says the guy is going to be special, I pay attention. Could the Colts have found another gem in the 2nd round? Signs point to yes..... we’ll know soon enough.

Let's be honest here Vontae was an incredible corner in his prime. Likely one of the best indy ever had. His playing style is completely different then what rocks is.

I thought  Rock was said to be a physical  press man type corner with ball skills

I’m just wondering if our first round pick in 2027 is as good as Peyton Manning. If not, I mean, what is the point of even drafting him?

 

Trade the pick to the Titans for a backup long snapper and get something out of it.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • 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.
