PR/KR Trevor Davis

Original Post

I kept Trevor Davis as the 6th WR but he's listed PR/KR.

This was just for sh!ts & gigs. I do understand the CB depth is a tad short, but, it is rich with talent. They are working the group pretty much as DBs in general, and I see a lot of opportunities for a few players to bounce back and forth between CB, Slot and S. Pretty smart move by them I think. Makes for a lot more fluidity and understanding/communication being all considered essentially one group. 

Wondering a bit whether Crosby survives the competition this year, simply for cap purposes. Sam Ficken is young, but he was quite good at Penn St, setting school record with a 54 yd. FG. However, his trajectory is low, and had 10 of 75 attempts blocked there. I'd stick with the vet, Crosby.

I get the Kizer thing, but I believe it was a wash getting rid of a locker room cancer who freelanced too much for their liking. Seems Gutey isn't one to hold too dearly to any mistakes, and I think the battle for the #2 QB will be a good one. Maybe they do keep 3.

I'm also starting to wonder a bit about Oren Burks. Rodgers targeted him twice this week and won both throws in his area. I'm hoping he comes around and helps this defense. Will see. This gives me hope though:

Kept a 10th OL, as keeping Aaron clean is priority one. Not sold on Madison making the 53, but, they did make a big commitment to him, and he wants to return the favor. Just wondering if the year may have been too much time away to win a spot, but I threw him in there.

Funny thing on keeping FB Dan Vitale. I looked up how TEN (MLF) used a FB last season, and Derrick Henry struggled mightily without one through the first 8 games, where he averaged 3.3 ypc. They signed FB Jalston Fowler, and he cruised to 5.88 ypc in their last 8 games. Using their TE group as H-Back wasn't working too well, and a mauler FB got the job done. Plus, Vitale is a great ST player.

Who knows how it shakes, but, it is kind of fun to take a guess. A lot of battling for positions to be had come late July.

TiT Town!

10 blocked kicks???? YIKES!

Right? Just looked that up... uh, no thanks. Unless they coach him up, and I mean up! Also had 30% touchbacks and only a 3.6 second hang time. Leg strength prior to draft was considered a bit less than desired.

I should mention he did improve his FG percentage from 50% freshman year to 82% senior year. Maybe he worked that out. This was first I heard of that.

Clearly a work in progress. Kickers do improve with time. 

Grave Digger doesn't have Kumerow. He's looking like a lock, like, a next to Adams lock.

F'ing Kumerow is my wife's new boyfriend...... ha!!! Not sure why. Maybe because they both went to Whitewater, but, so did I for a few months.

Just found out a bit more about Ficken. He missed 7 of his first 11 kicks at Penn St. Robbie Gould pulled him aside and mentored him, and he straightened himself out over the years.... kinda cool.

Yeah, has to be. GD is on his game.

The only trouble I have with his 53 is Yosh Nijman will never stick on our PS. Someone will snap him in a heartbeat, and he destroyed Clelin Ferrell, Wilkins and Lawrence from Clemson, and stoned Zach Allen. Great player at Virginia Tech. He must stay on this 53 or he is gone. Too valuable to not keep, with insane athleticism, and he plays both LT and RT. 6-7 340... Fell just short of "elite" category in SPARQ and RAS. Many scouts had him as the highest performer overall in his class at the Combine.

Why wasn't he drafted? 

Hey FLPacker, he had metal rods inserted into his legs after they fractured when he was younger and grew faster than his body could support. I’ll guarantee that was it. 

Did not stop him from playing very well. Gave up just 1 sack and 12 pressures in 2018, over something like 380 snaps. Didn’t stop him from owning the combine. Didn’t stop him from owning Brian Burns either. He played against some top talents at Virginia Tech in ACC.

Grave Digger:

You left out Kumerow.

I am not convinced he's a lock. I could see him being unseated by this Teo Redding or even this speedster Jawill Davis. J'Mon Moore could be in the mix also, but this offense seems to covet speed and Moore is not a burner. I think the low guys on the depth chart will need to have a niche...like Trevor Davis' return ability and speed. Kumerow is a well rounded player, but he's not great at anything. Moore has some intriguing qualities, but we've seen nothing that makes him special. 

As for Nijman, it's hard to say right now what would happen if he was sent to the PS. He's a guy I could see making it to the final cut down because of that athleticism, but there's a reason he was a UDFA and it's beyond just injury. He could be a guy that gets stashed, but the way practice is structured now (less full contact, more indy) you don't really find out what you have in OTs until the preseason.

GD, I just see him gone as quickly as NO snapped Taysom Hill 2 years ago. Monster mistake by Ted. Plus, you can't teach that kind of size/speed. The rook is NFL ready now, for but some work on his hands and feet. He's agile enough. We need a monster backup LT/RT. I would keep him at all costs from the PS. Might as well not even be on the team then....

I understand overvaluing your own, but, this guy was a steal in UDFA.

No one was willing to risk a $75K signing bonus to get Nijman in the 7th round. The lack of a publicly substantive downgrade and yet complete avoidance by the many teams in need of merely adequate tackles suggest there was a medical flag on Nijman raised by the combine physical. Something chronic or developing and litigable if released to the public.

Has to be more than that.... ACC coaches and beat writers did not even name him as honorable mention all-conference. They had at least 11 tackles ahead of him. Here is NFL.com report on him:     https://www.nfl.com/prospects/...86-5ad3-455d5d7e45d9
