Bold Predictions 2018

Recommended Posts

Starting from training camp, what are some of your thoughts on the season that you feel strongly about?

 

I think Jason McCourty is cut. That’s my first bold one.

Jacob Hollister becomes a legitimate weapon in Julian's absence.

Seems a lot more than bold.  Given Bill's affinity for the position, the departure of Butler, and the inexperience of the depth behind Gilmore/Rowe/McCourty, it seems farfetched that he lets JMac go.

Another one:

Philip Dorsett remains a viable clutch receiver. Not overly productive except in crunch time.

Nice of you to come out of hiding for me! I'm a huge fan of the young talent at the position and I think there is a chance it ultimately pushes McCourty off the roster.

I agree with this and to take it one step further, the emergence of Hollister and Berrios make Gronkowski's red zone prowess expendable in the trade market leading to a potential swap by the deadline.

Serious?

I've hated every 2nd Round CB we've ever taken (Butler, Dowling, Dawson (maybe a tad unfair) except Cyrus Jones, so I'm clinging to this faint hope.

I mistakenly fell into the hype of Ras-I Downling, Darius Butler, and to some extent Cyrus Jones, Ellis Hobbs and Terence Wheatley. Duke Dawson however I liked before the draft and I'm not upset with the pick. The only thing is there was so much depth at corner this draft that I don't love the value especially relative to the first round picks the Pats made. Regardless, will be looking out for Dawson to prove his worth early. Bare minimum I see Dawson as a good slot defender and average corner although I expect him to be borderline elite in the slot and above average at corner.

Darius Butler had a really promising rookie season and he carved out a nice career for himself in Indy. He's a solid DB and has been in the league for NINE YEARS. My god time flies.

Guys playing well so far have been mentioned here already: Jacob Hollister, Philip Dorsett.

 

Others doing well: Trent Brown, Danny Shelton, Stephone Gilmore, and Kyle Van Noy.

 

Wouldn't be surprised if Trent Brown is Pro Bowler at the end of the season. I guess you can out me down for that as a prediction, although it doesn't seem very bold after all the glowing reports preceeding this post.
