Thread: Jarvis Jones is a turtle

  1. #1

    Jarvis Jones is a turtle

    At his pro day his best 40 was 4.9. holy Tao ran 4.8. They also said he doesn't train real hard. I don't want him at 1.17. Give me one of the stud guards.

    I'm hoping teams trade up ahead of us for players like Patterson, Barkley, etc. and a gnarley OT like Lane Johnson falls to 17.

    the training rumors are concerning, however, I have no concerns about his playing speed.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Play-makers please. Wides, running backs, corners, etc.

    A OLB is not a play maker? Ask James how that interception in the super bowl was? Ask Woodley about the sack at the end of the same superbowl. Plus in the first it should go BPA (for the Steelers) PERIOD!

    Do I want this kid? Not so sure. Looks like he has huge bust potential.

    Also as it is most times Crash, you keep beating the SAME drum in every thread. Could you add some thoughts about Jones? Why he is a good or bad pick?

    James made that play on his own, he was supposed to blitz, recognized the play from an earlier game, and freelanced it.

    Jones is slow, we also don't have the time to wait for him to pay his dues and "learn the system" for 3 years (as if rushing the QB takes some sort of mensa member).

    This draft should be all about offense. If they pick any defense? I pick corners and safeties.

    Spreading teams out is the future of this league. Goodell's rules are making that happen. Need guys who can cover.

    Adapt or die.

    Putting the QB on his back before he can get the pass off is another way to stop the pass.

    When your defense gets spread out? Your OLB's are in coverage. How many games have you seen against us when a good team goes 3-4 wides and James and Woodley are backing up in zone coverage?

    I bet Harrison is not very 40 fast either. You also still need to rush the QB and stop the run. The vikings did ok just running the ball last year. But I do see your point. But you can not let the defense die.

    and how is that not being a playmaker?
