Nor does playing him closer to the LOS. He lacks ball skills and has no anticipation. He's a see ball, run to ball player who is always late, out of position or guessed wrong. Same problems in college that are translating. It's one thing to be a young player making some mistakes. Totally different to just visibly reckless and clueless. The fact we are hoping he can play close to the LOS tells you everything we need to know. He's a coverage liability so have to try and hide him. Which is awful for a first round draft pick. A good safety has to have instincts and anticipation. Abram is dog chasing cars. Obviously he hasn’t lived up to his draft status, but he’s explosive and a player I can see being successful playing more down hill. Play to his strengths and see if he has something. Guenthers scheme is being called complex and guys seem to have been confused, that’s no excuse to completely blow coverages and such. But I think if we can simplify things and just let him see ball hit ball more he can have a place. Not everyone has to be a superstar. What do you suggest we do with him? Scrap him after one year? I’m not arguing if he was worthy of a 1st, just that I can see him being a piece, similar to Mike Mitchell, who ended up having a pretty decent career. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
