You're reaching to justify that comparison and your concern. Carroll was an inch shorter 15 lbs heavier with an extensive track background. They only thing they have in common is that they play CB, were picked in R1 by the Packers, they are better in press coverage than zone, and they are under 6'. If those are your criteria then yeah their similarities are concerning. Alexander's measurables are all pretty close to Sam Shields including size, build, speed, college conference, and WR background.
Looks like we're going to have some nice talent available in R2: Best Player Available Rnd Grade Pos Full Name School 1st 4.46 DE Harold Landry Boston College 1st 4.45 CB Josh Jackson Iowa 1-2 4.40 OLB Lorenzo Carter Georgia 1st 4.39 G William Hernandez UTEP 1-2 4.38 RB Derrius Guice LSU 1-2 4.37 DT Maurice Hurst Michigan 1-2 4.28 WR Courtland Sutton SMU 2nd 4.23 TE Dallas Goedert South Dakota State 2nd 4.22 WR Christian Kirk Texas A&M 2nd 4.21 RB Nick Chubb Georgia 2nd 4.20 C James...
I'm hoping the Saints trade was truly some future planning on Goof's part. 2 #1's is a lot of ammo. If I'm using my totally un-scientific and non-existent draft board I would guess if the Packers sit pat it's an offensive pick, OL or TE. I keep reading Landry would be purely a pass rush guy, no inside move, not sturdy enough. Would he truly be worth trying to make a move up in the 2nd to get? I'm just curious to see if any respectable pass rushers would drop to the middle of the round. There...
FTFY DB's take as long as 4 years to "get it" sometimes. I think we'll have a real good idea about Jaire at the end of the 2019 season. Just stay healthy & play! Guys I like that are left on the board Josh Jackson DJ Chark Courtland Sutton Isaiah Oliver Will Hernandez Ronnie Harrison
listening to local Bucs talk radio there was not anyone that sounded all excited about the possibility of taking James for the Bucs. They were saying he was a great athlete but rarely did enough on the field to make a difference. Any many of the callers were FSU alum. So whether James or Edumunds are all that is as much in debate as whether or not Alexander is all that. I have no idea how these guys are going to translate to pro ball but hoping Alexander is better than Rollins or the already...
Problem is they are probably all gone by #45. The question is will Glutes package some chum to move up in RD2 or climb back into RD3? If he gets back into RD3 I hope it's the top half because he already has the first pick in RD4.
I think it was Gute taking advantage of a team that is all-in this year. The Saints pick at worst is #32. However, the Saints pick is one injury away from being a top 10-12 pick and that injury risk is a 39 year old QB.
Possibly all gone by #45 - We'll see Nobody expected Landry still on the board....or Josh Jackson. Lotta draft left yet. Reading back through older articles & finding out things here in Dallas - Seems Packers were really, REALLY trying to trade up & get Minkah. When that didn't work, they traded down & "settled" for Jaire while picking up more draft capital. Dolphins probably wanted the moon to move up 3 spots - good for Gutey standing his ground on value. Although I don't see...
Gute was asked about 2019 prospects with respect to the trade. He gave a non answer like Ted would, only difference is Gute was smiling when he answered. And was awake. Does he look for a QB heir in 2019?
That's exactly what I was thinking. AZ didn't pay too much to move up. Seems like Packers could have easily made a similar move. But after seeing how everything worked out, I'm glad it didn't happen. Time will tell, but based upon what I've read, there is a very good chance that Alexander ends up being as good, if not better, than Minkah. So I'm happy with Alexander and a future 1st.
Griffen is interesting. I'd guess top of 5th, but hobbits seem to be in fashion this year and it only takes one GM. The hand aside, he's awfully small for a linebacker. He's probably a Joe Thomas-type in the dime, and special teams. Hand work is so important in the pros and length can be too. If a team sees him as the nickel guy also, he could see the third round
Perhaps the death of Verne Troyer this week has given the Pack a soft spot for midgets? Ok, bad joke. Truth be told, I really don't care how big or small guys are as long as they can play. Being 5'8" 167 lbs. myself I personally have some love for the vertically and horizontally challenged individuals of the NFL.
