Bears Trade Back Into 2nd for Anthony Miller

I remember thinking when Frost was at UO that he'd end up with Nebraska due to his playing career. Money talks of course but my money would have been on Nebraska anyway,

Right, the only way they would have gotten him IMO is if they went all in before Nebraska had a chance to seriously go after him.

 

Of course as reactionary as these programs are, they might have rushed in as soon as they found out Florida offered the job. But not being tenacious towards getting him is the big issue for me. Or even Chip Kelly, I wouldn't want him as a pro coach but as a college coach he can win you a lot of games. Outside of Prescott he hasn't made any QB excel from his direct coaching IMO. Tebow, Smith, etc were just excellent college players, some guys like Fitzgerald and Leak did worse their 2nd year with him. I can't really hold his SEC record against him, he took Miss St and di well except against Bama and LSU, and simply put he wasn't going to match them just because of recruiting alone.

 

IDK, I'm just apprehensive of Mullen.

Just heard my favorite thing about Miller...even as the best player on the Memphis team last year and this year he still asked his coaches if he could play on kick coverage teams...that is the type of insane competitor you want on your team.

He is an animal.

Watching more of Miller it is easy to see why he makes some easy drops and has some ball security issues...nothing to do with his hands which are actually very good...concentration is good as well...it's all about the fact at times he tries to do to much...he is trying to make a move before securing the ball or trying to cut back one to many times on screens and gets caught out...you never want to take away that playmaking ability but he just needs to learn when the play is over in the NFL it is over.

He reminds me of a bigger Steve Smith.

He is just an angry dude. Listen to him in interviews he is an angry dude. He has a list of people who have disrespected him at all times.

Great read, excited to see him and Mitch mature together as players. Sky is the limit.

But go back and look at the SMU game. He went and blocked a kid from the 5-yard line all the way through the end zone and into the camera people. And the official came to our sideline. “Coach, you can’t block anybody that far. He has to stop.”

Me as coach:

Yes sir.

(Ref walks away)

Do it again Anthony.  Don't ever stop.  Block through the echo of the whistle. Great freakin job.  To the cooler!!!

----------

I coached for years.  Nothing in football drives people more nuts than players who never stop blocking them until play is over no matter how far from ball.  Nothing.  Just makes them crazy and totally puts them off their game.  Can win the game for you more often than not.  Defenders will often start fights out of frustration.   

We would do a great drill where we had 3 blockers on 3 defenders trying to get to an object, usually a tennis ball sitting on a large traffic cone or a stand up dummy or an upside down garbage can.

There would be two winners in the drill.  The first defender to his object and the last blocker whose defender didn't make it.   They got points for each.  More points for the blocking because its harder and as blocker you got to stay on for next rep while everyone else rotated.   Really got kids motivated to block forever.

Its hard to get kids motivated to block.  Nobody wants to be a blocker and none of the parents want their kids to be blockers.  That echos through the levels.  Football people understand its importance though.

WRs who love to block are football porn.

Hit it right on the head here. If he’s legit then the cost of advancing next year’s 2 a year of a mid round pick, a round in which we had an extra pick anyway, basically a non-factor. It’s going to make the expectation we look to trade back in next year’s 1st runs far more prevalent without question though. 

I like the pick and AZ you hit the cost of making it happen spot on.  We didn't give up a 2nd round pick.  We borrowed one today we'll pay back a year from now.  The cost (interest if you will) on that loan was a current 4th round pick we had to spare anyway.  We could not have gotten a WR of Miller's caliber in round four and we couldn't wait 'til 2019 to fill the need for a slot receiver like him.  He offered high value now so we borrowed to draft him.

This is no different than any one of us buying an item on sale for a bargain price today and financing the purchase price on a note to be repaid in 12 months with interest paid in advance.  I'm sure a lot of us have done that in our lives as well.  I know I have whenever the cost savings and the value received now exceeded the cost of the interest to do it.  The true cost is only the 4th round pick since it would have taken a 2nd round pick to draft Miller anyway.

I hope I'm correct and I believe I am but I think Miller will end up as an equivalent to Jordan Howard in terms of what he can bring to an offense.  Some believe he'll actually be the one to lead the Bears in receptions and I don't feel that's all that far off base.  Not in a system like Nagy will run.  Burton and Miller could very easily both prove to be "big dogs" and put to rest any concerns about their cost in terms of cap dollars or draft capital.

He reminds me a lot of Jarvis Landry. He could be really good in the slot.
