Anthony Butler LB UDFA


Recommended Posts

 

Everyone talking about Deon Jackson, but don't sleep on this kid. He can beat out Glasgow.

  • CR91 changed the title to Anthony Butler LB UDFA

He better be great on STs to have any chance.  There were very few highlights were he was actually blocked, so it’s hard to tell if he can play LB at this level.  
 

I wish him luck and hope he can show enough to make the PS.

Glasgow isn’t on the team for his ability as a linebacker.   He’s on the team because he’s a Special Teams ace. 
 

Ballard got a tip about Glasgow when the kid was a freshman.   Kept his eye on him for four years.   We used a 6 on him.   Our last pick of the 2020 season but it was a 6.   In other words, we really, really like him.  And he had a very good rookie year. 
 

So if Butler is beating out Glasgow, he’s going to have to do it on ST’s, not as a LB.

True, but Glasgow is limited to just that STs. Butler imo can actually play LBer. Course we have to see if he can do it at the pro level, but if he can and looks good on STs then he can get his spot.

Butler would have to be better at LB than one of... 

 

Speed, Adams or Franklin.  That’s who he’s competing against.  And now you can add the newly signed FA,  Jackson.   The odds of Butler being better than Glasgow at ST’s are very,  very small.

Jefferson is a camp body imo. He can't stick with a team. Keep in mind we did keep 7 LBers last year.

I mentioned four players and you talk about one of them.  
 

It’s almost as if the other three don’t even exist....   (poof!).   
 

Ok...    whatever...

Great video, I was looking forward to us drafting a late day 3 linebacker but udfa will do just fine :)

Competition for the 3rd position on the 2nd level is wide open lets go

Sounds like a great kid from interviews, but very limited. 4.88 40, sub 30 vert, poor 3C.

 

At his size 6-1 and 230, that's just not good.

    • I don’t know if he could ever be good or not, but he isn’t good enough right now.  Same with Campbell.  I watched most of his reps.  He stumbled on his first get off v a defender and struggled after that.  I didn’t see the other practices and it wouldn’t be surprising for a recovering ACL guy to have a bad day on the 4th consecutive camp day.  They weren’t running a lot of crossers and those type of routes which is where he’s good either.  And I said it was a heavy RZ GL session which won’t necessarily be his strong suit.  I mentioned the nice come back catch in the OP   nuance people.
    • From the college games I watched, I would take Ehlinger over Eason. He doesn't have the fantastic upside of Eason but I saw him trade blows with Murray and best him. I saw him go toe to toe with Burrow in the season when Burrow was a god. When it comes to the tape, I don't think Eason can match Ehlinger, when it comes to big game performance, performances against quality D1 schools, will to win, those intangibles (and heck even the tangibles), I think Ehlinger was the better guy in college. It's all subjective of course but that first OU/Texas game in 2018, Ehlinger wasn't losing that game. When Ballard said the things he said about Ehlinger post-draft, I knew instantly what he meant, whatever 'it' is, the kid has it.    Now, sure Eason has the upside, and maybe he has a Josh Allen transformation (though Allen always had that FACT that he could scramble as a fallback and Eason isnt really a scrambler) but right now, the only thing Eason has over Ehlinger is the eye test. He looks the part (whatever the heck that means) and carries a rocket for an arm, and people have been tantalized by him since high school though not a single coach has been able to unlock that magic apple in the kid, we will see.
