    Re: Which draft pick is your favorite?

    I was just wondering, maybe Dobson doesn't get separation because Dobson doesn't need separation.

    Man

    Ryan’s physicality serves him very well in man coverage. In press coverage, he does a terrific job of jamming receivers at the line or at least getting his hands on his opponent within five yards to slow or adjust his opponent’s route.

    He could draw some penalties for using his hands too much in downfield coverage, but he is consistently physical. When he is able to slow the receiver at the line, he does a great job of establishing inside position against his opponent to be in a position to force incompletions or make plays on the ball.

    He did get beat deep on some occasions in his junior season, and struggles with recovery speed in a one-on-one coverage situation. But if Ryan can clean up his technique, he can be a terrific man cover cornerback at the next level.

     

    Zone

    Ryan is competent in zone coverage, but his game is better suited for man coverage.

    As mentioned, he does a good job reading plays and getting hands on the football, which suits him very well in zone coverage. That said, he is unnatural in zone coverage, and sometimes allows receivers to make plays behind him while not picking up any coverage himself. Given his use of hands and physicality, he is more effective in one-on-one man coverage.

     

     

     

     

    after reading this, it seems like his biggest issues in college was when he had to turn his hips, he would lose a step and doenst have blazing speed to catch up but its a coachable issue. IN terms of press coverage, it is listed as a strenght as he is one of the most physical, hands on CB in the draft, so not sure where u got that. He sounds like a taller Dennard with maybe a little stiffer hips, although Dennard does run funny with his head high. He ran a 4.56. I dont recall Dennard recording anything significantly faster like a 4.3 or anything. I just like his film and Im excited to see what he brings. Our Dbs are always hurt so Im predicting he plays a role this year.



    Rutgers left Ryan on an island for a good bit of last year. He played man with some help from Harmon at safety against some pretty good wr's and held his own. He showed me he can play Man. At least at the college level. 

    What is good about our Defensive backfield now, is that we have good depth and bb has a bunch of flexibility to move guys around. For example, he doesn't have to play Arrington outside if Dennard or Talib went down. He could insert Ryan, or even mccourty if he wanted to, and god willing, maybe Ras can step in if called on. 

    This is the strongest our defensive backfield has looked since our last SB victory.

    Imagine if Ras-I actually played like he did at the beginning of his rookie year?

    Yeah. That would be awesome.

    I have no idea where bredbru is getting the whole Ryan cannot play press and needs to be hidden in a zone.  Not all scouting reports agree, but I have seen none that say Ryan cannot play man.  Some say it is a strength.

     




    Bdbreu is a troll. No one has ever once seen him praise BB for any personnel move. Ever.

     

     




     

    so in context, so are you for not giving Brady any credit, EVA!!!  Hey Pot, meet Kettle!

    pcmiv, I was thinking the same, actually saw most sites saying he is press man CB. Bdbreu is not a troll though. Maybe a bad speller, but he is a fan like everyone else.



    hey triple, but im a damn fine bad speller.... :)

    several of the top ones. lil late to go back now. 

    ill be pleasantly surprised and elated if they are wrong and hes aces in press man. thats what we need. defense is light years better palying press man .then the only thing we need is a consistent pass rush. im corssing fingers on buchanon. some tape i saw him , he looked better than jones in college (limited tape that i saw). very  determined heat seaking missile at qb beating blockers). that and jones imporoving and good press man cbs and our de will be in the game to the end. then if josh deosnt crash the offense we ahve a shot

    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.

     

     

     

    hey triple,
    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.



    hey triple his 40 was officailly 4.59. same top scouting orgs posted the 40 in thier reviews.

    we played zone till we had talib. he and dennard cahnged our d playing press man. the defense was more effective.

    yes, ive wnated to drop arrington for quite a while. what we paid him asrtounds me. 

    i saw dennard a stocky shorter guy who desptie this was always pretty good in press man.

    i know w e dont need another safety thus my complaint with the pick (gave ful critque on a  couple threads. on his pick i wnated a press man and if we have to hide him in zone it weakens our de imo and re being thought by many that he may need to be moved to safety 

    i said great another cb we wil have that needs to be moved to safety.

    i will wait to see to conclude. but what i read before and after the draft (and heard by the analysts) i was not happy. 

    lets see what happens.

    cheers

    I don't thing the picks by themselves were bad. The harvest turned out pretty good IMO, given how many picks they had this year. 

    I myself am indifferent on the Ryan pick. On nfl.com he is shown to have run a 4.56 40 (avg of his two runs perhaps?). Of the 17 CBs taken in the first four rounds, only Banks had a slower time.

    To me the 40 is critical for a CB. We always complained of the CBs not turning their head to the ball. Its pretty instinctive for the CB to not turn his head until he gets really close to the receiver. The CB will always be using his eyes to track the receiver, until he knows he's eliminated the separation. Unless he's able to keep up, he will never turn his head. The CB turning his head to the ball is not going to matter if he's already beaten by a full stride or more.

    I can see Ryan ending up being redundant with Arrington in the slot. Ryan might end up being better at jamming the receiver.

    That said, by the Ryan pick, there weren't any sub-4.5 CBs left on the board, other than Webster. I'd take Ryan over Webster any day. I think they picked the right CB given who was left on the board.

    So why did they not pick a CB earlier? I cannot answer that.

    And this is where I have to give BB the benefit of the doubt. If he thinks, it is more important for the team to get a quick LB and a fast WR, then there must be a good reason for it. 

    In truth, I can't even say past decisions that left them with few picks were bad decisions despite not getting much out of them. Even if they had their picks through the first four rounds (29, 59, 91, ?), I don't think they would have yielded better players than they actually did.

    Re: Which draft pick is your favorite?

    I was pretty happy with this haul overall... loved (like most) that they addressed WR, DB and edge rusher and really think they got some solid value in Rd 7.  They were some players that I would have preferred, but I didn't really hate any of the picks... though I don't see the value of Duron Harmon over a player like Jesse Williams, who appeared to be sliding due to a lingering knee issue... he would've been the epitome of value in Rd 3, IMO... but there are a lot of positives about Harmon, so I look forward to seeing what he can do.

    To answer the question:

    I'll go with Josh Boyce... look forward to seeing what this kid can do with a good QB throwing him the football as his production (while respectable) was really hampered by Trevone Boykin (85th in Comp % and 70th in YPA last season) and his inability to consistently get the ball down the field.  I think his combo of intelligence, speed, quicks and toughness will allow him to adapt quickly to NE's complex O.

    Forced to pick a defensive player; I was really high on Logan Ryan leading up to the draft... think he's a Rd 2 talent... looks like a solid all around football player to me and one that could really excel in NE's predominantely zone scheme.  Tough kid, very good tackler, good feet and quicks, adequate straight-lined speed, effective blitzer and is instinctive... getting his hands on a ton of footballs during his time at Rutgers (30 PBU / 7 INT's over the last two seasons).

    I was thinking of changing my selection to Duron Harmon but that would be tantamount to inciting a riot and would probably blow up the thread.  Don't really want to do that.

    Edit:  Oops - just saw this post from rtuinila:

    Harmon is my favorite. Just because of all the heads exploding with that pick. Reminded me of the beginning of the movie "Scanners". Can't wait to see if he becomes a contributor and if he does, how many more heads will explode!

    yeah man, well see what happens with ryan.

    in general when there are no picks at positon you need, go with better fb payer.

    couldve soled cb in fa as a suggested before draft.

    or even could have gien up a bb precious 14 pick to move up for preferred player.

    in the end of course i hope for the best.

    funny several ssya dont have a problem with any of the picks then later in thier post say dont kno teh thinking or why harmon there at that pick. seems anothe rmaybe adequate player at a position with a bunch of adequate players so going stud at some position mightve been better. if he becomes a + player i will be ecstatic. we'll  wait and see. tavon aint that so far.

    BB now just has a bunch of DBs. He will figure out in camp, who plays where and figure out the best way to play with what he has. Thats one of the things I like about BB. He can play his D according to his players. That being said, Im hoping Harmon surpises and Gregory is cut. Too many mouse safeties for me. Also, I apologize about the spelling comment.

    In response to BassFishingII's comment:

    Boyce - I think he's going to be the find of the draft.  He can line up all over, get deep, looks like a great YAC option and he has the overdrive gear that is very rare.  He almost looks like he's not running hard and then he just pulls away.

    Collins - Can play all over.  A BB dream on defense.

    Dobson - Should be fun watching him in single man or in the red zone.



    I agree. Boyce I think will impact this year and every year. Dobson has more upside and in the long run might be more special. But Boyce is bread and butter and some jam as well. And I also like Collins.

    just not the plan i had in mind with my press man and pass rush preference which bb moved to (and i hoped and opined here for the minute talib was speculated coming here). 

    ryan by all accounts is better than wherewe picked him, just expected to be in a zone or moved ot safety.

    he might be the best safety on the team even if he plays cb. i was hoping for a 4th cb (talib, dennard, dowling) who was starting calber press man. cbs go down. stuff happens. and having 3 good cbs on the field is often necessary.

    so yeah, im open to it turning out well.

    you mean someone targeted me with complaints of my typing skills. 

    no worries. im not insecure.

    people who feel not accepting about themself are compelled to lash out or to ignore others, especially who they feel inadequate around. there's a particulary lot of "humanness" here or human frailty. no one's pefect. but it would be nice if fans of one team coudl act brotherly and sisterly to one another or at least like they were on the same team. very ironic. some often point out what being a good teammate is then treat our "team" of  fans poorly. i have hoped that pointing out such beahvior, then ignoring posters who continue would create a more positive environment. however most insist on responding to and rewarding such beahavior, thus i suspect it may be slow to stop. moving on.

    In response to BassFishingII's comment:

     

    Boyce - I think he's going to be the find of the draft.  He can line up all over, get deep, looks like a great YAC option and he has the overdrive gear that is very rare.  He almost looks like he's not running hard and then he just pulls away.

    Collins - Can play all over.  A BB dream on defense.

    Dobson - Should be fun watching him in single man or in the red zone.

     



    I agree. Boyce I think will impact this year and every year. Dobson has more upside and in the long run might be more special. But Boyce is bread and butter and some jam as well. And I also like Collins.

     

     



    good post, nice thoughts, opinons, and a food reference... nice :)

    Ok, yea at 4.59, he is teetering 4.6 territory. I wont act like I know what he can do, Im just going by film and reports but only BB knows what he wants him to do. I just like the fact he can do somewhat. He cant be as bad as Arrington in man coverage..can he?  lol

    hey triple, i just found the thread you referenced (link below) and i was pleasantly suprised that it was just the opposite and gained a little more faith in humanity (and that this board can be a lil better place with a little care and effort).

    it's an amzing world. 

    sometimes things can just surprise you in a good way! :)

    ciao
