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.

    • Yeah...I don't think Ballard would even draft a Jameis Winston either. But peak Winston is a much better QB than JB.
    • This is what I said above - the general stats are sometimes misleading - simply put - teams that fall behind a lot try to get back in games by throwing a lot. Teams that get ahead a lot, try to drain clock and run a lot at end of games. I've found that the game-neutral % are a better indicator for 1. tendencies(the % of pass vs run plays) and 2. strength of the chosen play.   Those stats are kind of hard to get and I haven't found a specific place, there are several users on twitter that have those stats and post them sporadically. Ours are not very different between game neutral and general(because a lot of our games are close so not a lot of blowouts to skew pass% and rush% numbers)     Yes and I disagreed with him at the time. I also disagreed with his reasoning for wanting to improve that part of the game. But that's irrelevant here.      Yep. But again - that's why we have to look at the game neutral situations.    I mean... we went from 4.2 to 4.6 and we are now tied for 7th-10th. Top 5 is actually 4.9, not 5.9, so we are 0.3 away from being top 5.    Balance is a weird thing. I personally am not a fan of balance for balance's sake. What's important is how efficient is your offense so, whatever ratio gives you the best efficiency and best chance to win the most games is what we should be aiming at. That ratio would be different for different QBs you have and most coaches in the league seem to intuitively understand that and adjust(the better passers get higher pass%, the worse passers and/or good runners get higher run%). (again - I am talking about game neutral situations here)
    • No. I watched Portland wresting when I was a kid, but it never interested me after that. I've heard those names, but couldn't put the face to the name.    I do know who Ric Flair is now because of all the times he is referenced on this site. 
    • Okereke, when on the field with Leonard and Walker has been playing SAM since Leonard came back from his concussion.
    • Not sure how I can say it differently but I'll try. I don't want Oke playing any MLB at all. I'd like to upgrade MLB with a true 3 down guy instead of bringing Oke in for passing downs. I'd prefer Oke stay outside 100% of the time (either as primary SAM or backup WILL).    At Mike specifically, I'd do the reverse of what they are doing now. I'd get a new primary Mike that can stay on the field in most packages (3 down guy), and use Walker as the back up and as a rotational guy on early downs.
