    6. Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Cleveland Browns Coverage: 14/20 Reaction: 22/30 Recovery: 17/25 Tackling: 11/15 Position Value: 8/10 Overall Grade: 72/100 A surprising 2016 undrafted free agent who made a noticeable impact as a rookie, Briean Boddy-Calhoun was a rising name entering 2017. But poor coaching decisions put a damper on his second year, as he played much more zone than man, and was often far off the line of scrimmage, more like a safety. That led to little ball production since Boddy-Calhoun is more of a man threat than zone fit. In the right system for his talents, Boddy-Calhoun has more potential than he's shown. —NFL1000 DB Scout, Ian Wharton Cleveland's defense has far more talent than you might imagine given the 0-16 record and questionable defensive coaching decisions at times—yes, we're looking at you, Gregg Williams. But when Boddy-Calhoun is engaged in tighter coverages, he has the ability to close quickly and negate yards after the catch. He was out of place at times in his deep zone drops, but he's shown enough skill in tighter coverages to earn more opportunities to succeed in systems that actually play to his talents. —NFL1000 Lead Scout Doug Farrar

    I bought my sister a Joe Haden jersey like 3 years ago because I thought him and Joe Thomas were the only good players that were actually going to be around on the Browns for the jersey to stay relevant.. Whoops.
  3. Cleveland Cavaliers Thread: Enjoy it Fellas

    Bamba is a Rudy Gobert clone who wont be around for the Cavs at 8. Likely a top 5 pick. Colin Sexton looks good and in a PG driven league--he could come in and have a immediate impact. Bridges is the ultimate 3+D machine who I think would fit better if LeBron stays. However, there is some Kawhi Leonard to his game if he can come in and develop creating for himself a little bit more. He could be a guy that given 1 year after his rookie season could be a absolute steal if he keeps progressing his game. For me its one of those two at #8. Wendell Carter Jr. also has a lot of upside and could be another one of those new age bigs who can shoot the 3.

    Yea but he was liquid garbage in Miami. He was serviceable and startable in his 2 years in Cleveland. I figured that would been enough to raise his original trade value at least a round.

    Whooopeeeee...gave him away

    Chandler Jones I hope but they would have to throw us like another 2nd rounder too.

    I forgot about Wilson, it will be interesting to see if he gets a shot. To me its like they created a log jam at WR/CB for competitions sake. Mitchell/Gaines/Carrie/Ward/BBC/Taylor/Wilson. 2 of them will have to go and Im assuming it will be Wilson/Mitchell. I would really like if they actually gave BBC consistent playing time because I have more faith in him in the slot than anybody on that list not names Ward

    Couldnt tell you the percentages but I know (because everyone knows I also follow Denver) that he lines up sort of everywhere in the same way Chris Harris does. But hes just the really bad version of him. From watching them play twice a season for the past 3-4 years Carrie has been on the team the only time I ever even noticed he was on the field was when he made some good plays against the run to the outside. Coverage wise? I never watched a game and said 'man that Carrie guy is locking up Demaryius' Hes just....there. Average. I remember he will have a nice pass deflection but then give up a 15 yard post route on the next play. Hes Jamar Taylor level of average. He will make a nice tackle in run support, maybe a good pass breakup and then you look at his WRs statline at the end of the game and it will be 5 catches for 65 yards and a TD.
  10. 2018 Season BOLD PREDICTIONS thread

    Agreed, I just hoping Ward is the caliber CB that people think he is.
  11. 2018 Season BOLD PREDICTIONS thread

    Precisely. Which is why Im not nearly as high on the mish mash of #3 CBs we just inherited as other are. Its like we went out and signed a bunch of Jamar Taylor clones with Carrie/Mitchell/Gaines though at least Gaines came off a solid season. Either way all 3 are complete dart tosses. The Rams went out and got Talib/Peters for some mid round picks and cash and Im over here trying to convince myself that TJ Carrie and EJ Gaines are good lol

    Here is from a list of the top slot defenders in the NFL for the 2017 season from Bleacher Report. Take it for what you will. 34. T.J. Carrie, Oakland Raiders Coverage: 13/20 Reaction: 16/30 Recovery: 14/25 Tackling: 8/15 Position Value: 8/10 Overall Grade: 59/100 "The Oakland Raiders had a cornerback crisis this season with injuries and disappointing play, and T.J. Carrie's struggles in the slot contributed. Carrie's inexperience inside showed; in 15 starts he rarely displayed any playmaking ability. Carrie's a competitor and gives great effort against the run, but his discipline and run fits are average. There's not much upside to show for the 27-year-old."
  13. 2018 Season BOLD PREDICTIONS thread

    Average play. I have seen Carrie play many times watching Raiders games and he is 'okay' at best. He was the best CB on the leagues worst pass defense so I guess that's.....good?. My friend who is a die hard raiders fan even said "he will look like a AllPro for 4 games a year and look like he belongs nowhere near a football field the other 12" He's a former 7th round pick on his second team so it's not like Carrie has a bunch of untapped potential that didn't work out in Oakland. He is who he is at this point. Not saying he can't improve a little with being consistent but we'll see. Personally I don't think he will give you anything Jamar Taylor wasn't. Gaines is a former 6th round pick who is on his 3rd team in 4 years after having 1 solid season on a defense that managed to make Jordan Poyer and Michah Hyde look like the beat safety tandem in the NFL. Not saying he's bad, but Gaines is on a 1 year deal with a new team again for a reason. Everybody knows my opinion about Ward. I think he will be a good solid CB but I see his pro career being more like a good #2 such as Bradley Roby and not a elite #1 like Marshon Lattimore. I will gladly eat crown if he turns out to be a all-world player but I just don't see it in his rookie year. I think the CBs will obviously be improved from last year, but I'm just less optimistic than others that it will automatically turning a good unit that doesn't need to add another great top tier piece.
  14. 2018 Season BOLD PREDICTIONS thread

    * Chubb by week 5 takes control of the running game and we regulate Hyde to a short yardage/goalline back for the whole year. * Tyrod is benched for Mayfield at the bye week after a 3-7 start to the season. * Josh Gordon goes back to being his 2013 self. * Our CBs still look extremely suspect as the year goes on. * Njoku explodes onto the scene as a healthy version of Jordan Reed. * The O-Line looks like a top 5 unit in the NFL by years end. * Mayfield shows his talent after finishing the season 4-2 and gets everybody all hot and bothered going into next season. * Pass rusher becomes biggest need heading into next offseason after Ogbah looks average.
  15. Greg Williams on Denzel Ward. Lets think about this more

    That is the key to this whole defense IMO and what they are trying to do. Ogbah + Garrett have had their injures and unfortunatly Garretts goes all the way back to college as him being a little fragile. Which blows my mind even further how you dont get a 3rd insurance policy pass rusher in the draft. Harold Landry at 33 would have been...ummm...exactly that.
