  1. Offseason Thread

    Well that the way I look at it when it comes to football. I don't care how its used in the English language. In football language, it describes the best in the game.
  2. Offseason Thread

    Where in college. What skills are elite ? Well, that doesn't speak well for the Pats drafting and taking Harry. They are awful drafting WR. Dynamic. Is a word to go with the best in the game. If you believe that true as you mentioned you watched him AS. Maybe a little to much fan in you! He has no elite skills other than size. He is slow and lacks quickness. He's working on his footwork this off season. Why ? I tell you, without fixing his major problem, we're looking at a 1st RD bust. I don't describe to the injury held him back. Yes with rhythm and knowing the offense, however BB would not put him on the field if he couldn't play. He was dominate in college however now he's going against the big boys and he can't you just use his size. Forgot, the scouting reports said he lacked separation in college however he just physically dominated the CBs. CB that most likely never will play in the NFL! Don't get me wrong here, I hope he the next Micheal Irvin however if what he doing now doesn't work. The Pats blew it again on another WR.

    I really like the approach the Pats are taking in regards to (not) drafting WR. I look at WR as X Mas Ornament. You need the (OL and QB) tree or there useless. The only thing that I care about is (WR) his natural abilities playing the position. Yes they have limitations (small) however they can play. Pats over the years in general looked for big WR when drafting that hasn't worked in 20 years. PS I'm not saying I'm happy we passed on WRs. There were many in the middle and late rounds I liked. This approach was why I loved the Meyers signing and why I was pissed we passed on KJ Hill. They can (production) play the position. Bold possible PS. WR Will Hastings, Auburn ------------------- Big advantage working with Sid. Can he play ST. TE Rashod Berry, Ohio State -------------- Depends how effective he plays multiple positions. WR Isaiah Zuber, Mississippi State ----- No chance, you can always say your were signed by the Patriots. QB J’Mar Smith, Louisiana Tech --------- Oh Ya watch the LSU tape. He and his team got killed. However watch closely his play. Reads and moves in pocket. CB Myles Bryant, Washington ----------- N/A DT Bill Murray, William & Mary ----------- No chance in hell. To slow and small move like a old NT. LB De’Jon Harris, Arkansas ----------------- Thumper always has a chance. WR Sean Riley, Syracuse --------------------- Has to show WR skills. Can he learn route tree and understan offense. ST skills of the charts. RB J.J. Taylor, Arizona ---------------------- All depends on his passing skills. Limited in the run game. You see home run skills however not much between tackles. LB Kyahva Tezino, San Diego State ------ N/A DE Nick Coe, Auburn --------------------------- Under achiever that has the skills. Lazy never live up to the hype. DT Courtney Wallace Jr, Louisiana Tech ---- He will work however does he have size and strength at the NFL level. QB Brian Lewerke, Michigan State ------------ Watched him at the ( stunk) combine, he was as good as his career. Only chance is his abilities to grasp (offense) information WR Jeff Thomas, Miami ------------------------ All World however All World pain in the ***. He'll have a great camp and than hold out for (Top) WR money !!!!! Idiot. DE Trevon Hill, Miami --------------------- Can he work on the outside off line of scrimmage. Has skills TE Jake Burt, Boston College ------------- BC turn out functional TEs. Can he block and stay healthy. Blocks good by Izzo the glass man! Ok My breakdowns over. Drum roll please!!!! QB J’Mar Smith, Louisiana Tech He has skills and as a third QB he can work the other teams offense. EX Ravens. He not a running QB but he has the athletic ability to do so. WR Will Hastings, Auburn - He has worked with Sid but can he play ST. Not known for ST play can he do it or was he protected do to injuries.

    Let me try to clear this up. Its not his skill to play WR, we all no he can do that. Its taking a kid in the 1st RD that skills that may not translate in the NFL as a number 1 WR. His speed and quickness is average at best. He could play for the Pats a long time however you don't draft a WR to be your 3rd or 4th option. Just look at Deebo Samuals and compare natural abilities. It no contest. They only thing Harry has over him is size which mean nothing if he to slow and can't get separation. Lets me ask who would you take if you made the pick. I know I would of taken Deebo. He's another, they take Dugger on his all round physical gifts which is the exact opposites when they you compare Deebo and Harry. Hunter said, Pats horrible (WR) 20 year sample size. Maybe they need to look less at size and more on natural abilities.

    One concern. His body has taken a beating. Will he have any gas left in the tank.
  6. Offseason Thread

    Well your take is he a rookie and he was injured and that was his problem, which i disagree. I look at when he played and how he moved. Ya , he was a rook and injured but he was a 1st RD pick and his game is raw at best. My opinion on him is spot on. Even Harry knows he needs work. A 1st RD pick that has to learn how to move!. IMO that more like a 3/4 RD pick. Also BB would not put a rookie in if he couldn't go.
  7. Offseason Thread

    Bingo. I still can't figure out why the Pats picked him. What did they see other than his size. You look at the tape, numbers etc... and compare him to Deebo Samuel. That's what baffles me. " Hey Bill these are the two WR were looking at what to you think!!!! "" Like to add another thought. Cordelle Paterson (Rated top WR) was on the board when the Pats traded the pick to Vikings. Pats desperate need at the time. He passed, thank God but he turns around and takes Harry. Why so inconsistent Lastly, I from the camp that hates WR and RB in the 1st round.

    The times might be the same but the wasted motion killed him. MT get off the line much quicker and with his size he create fear. Something Harry has to do to be effective. I hope the work pays off. At least he's a worker and a WR without a big ego. If not we can add 10/15 LBS on him and turn him into a (Shannon Sharp) TE.

    What I saw was a players that ran like a duck in quick sand. Yes I over exaggerate my point but I'm using it as a visual. He is slow and lacks quickness. X WR "He's on the line of scrimmage, he cannot go in motion, and so, when he's facing a cornerback, as he almost always is, the cornerback can jam him at the line. So, your X receiver, he better have the profile of a guy that has the speed to get down the sideline, he better have the quickness to get away from the corner, and he better be good coming off a press." https://www.fieldgulls.com/2012/7/17/3165517/breaking-down-the-x-z-and-slot-receiver I know he was hurt however he came in as a 4.59 speed guy which I consider slow for the position. Now you add the choppy steps, he look even slower. Some of it had to do with injury however IMO is just a excuse. His biggest skill is size however if he can't put fear in a corner he's done and his effectiveness will be average at best. We are talking about a 1st round pick. I want to see more than what he has shown in his limited time on the field.

    Not to pat myself on the the back. This is the major problem with Harry. I knew it when I watched him last year. I could not believe this wasn't address before this off season. Now, if it works we might see a much better player going forward. https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/patriots/nkeal-harrys-new-trainer-details-how-patriots-wr-can-improve-2020

    I call it " slap hands " He hasn't showed the ability to catch it softly. He needs to go back to basics. The drill we were taught as a youngsters. You know thumb to thumb, whatever its called

    I going on past articles that mention him as a left tackle replacement. They said he could play the position however he better at guard. BB mindset, we will coach him up. He has the tools, we will see. Like i said, head scratcher. https://247sports.com/nfl/new-england-patriots/Article/Joe-Thuney-embracing-opportunity-with-left-tackle-reps-132608918/
