Thread: Matt Elam anyone??

    Matt Elam anyone??

    What are your thoughts on this Florida safety? Is he B & G material? A quick google shows he has decent height, speed & physically he looks like he come could up and stop the run. He looks like he could be a playmaker also.

    He's a good player, I see him as very similar to Bob Sanders. Hopefully he can stay healthier than Sanders.

    However, I like D.J. Swearinger or Philip Thomas in the 2nd. Elam will be a late 1st or early 2nd round pick. His size will hurt him, but damn he is a hammer.

    Thanks for the feedback. I just saw him in a Bowl game and there was something about him that stuck out. I will keep my eye on the guys you mentioned.

    I like Swearinger too, but also like Tony Jefferson from Oklahoma. We could get one of them in Round 3.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Elam is a missile. He is a great nickel corner and can play either safety spot. In some ways, he reminds me of Troy.

    I am not sure he is worthy of the 17 th pick. But, I think he is the best safety in this class.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I agree with your assessment. Elam had 11 TFL's. From the safety position? Yeah that is a lot like Troy. If we were drafting at the back end of round one he would be a lot more appealing to me too.
