Just curious who everyone is the most excited about and why.
I would have to say that I'm the most excited about Dobson. Harmon and Collins intrigue me a lot, but I'm so pumped to have a tall receiver with some decent downfield speed and great hands. If Gronk can get healthy this team is going to be deadly in the redzone.
Logan Ryan for abvious reasons. Look like he has the same agressive style and attention to detail as McCourty but shows a better abilty to track balls in the air over his head and his ball skills are good and he isnt as stiff in the hips as McCourty. Im am happy that maybe Arrington will never play outside again with him here. Looks like a solid CB and may challenge Dennard for the starting spot. I would like Dennard to eventually kick inside(only 5'9") and that pushed Arrington to Dime and lets us start Logan who is better vs the run and a taller defender for the outside. Boyce gets honorable mention as a David Givens type sleeper who may play this year and surprise.
ryan cant play press man klike dennard can and ryan is slow (doesnt have recovery speed).
specualted to need cover 2 to protect him or move to safety.
so we'll see
ok, thanks, I hadnt heard that yet. I mean we do play a lot of cover 2 depending on personell. Kyle is also a zone guy. So Dennard and Talib are man to man specialists with Ryan and Kyle preferring zone...Hey, in any event, every DB is gonna need to play both and Im not gonna pigeon hole Ryan before seeing him play. I was told Dennard was a smaller,.slot CB who excels in man, but he played outside for us quite a bit. U just never know,. so while I appreciate the info, I dont think its warranted yet. Did he run a 4.6 or slower?? I believe he was a 4.4-4.5 guy which is just fine. Also, why would the Pats need another CB/S , we have too many as it is (Gregory, McCourty, T.Wilson)
If were drafting slow, zone only CBs in the 3rd round, thats a problem, imo.
