Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

CB Janoris Jenkins' family drama more troublesome to his draft status than drug arrests, bar fight - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Wow. Four different kids by 3 different women...lol


Quote:
But what appears to be a chaotic personal life, where an NFL hopeful is the father of four children by three different women, might be the issue that makes teams take a player off the draft board altogether.

Would not touch this guy with a 1,000 ft. pole.


Guess he's trying to beat Cromartie's record of 9 kids...lol


Quote:
As for the children and the women, the life of Cromartie is instructive. Cromartie is an incredibly gifted player who has been dogged for years by the drama in his life from of having nine children by eight women in six states. Cromartie’s troubles were so daunting that his original team, the San Diego Chargers, traded him in part because they felt he was too distracted and under too much pressure to do his job.


Quote:
“I know we haven’t decided what to do with him,” an AFC executive said. “We might take him off our board. I know there will be three or four teams that will take him off right away, at least for the first round.”

Said an NFC team executive: “You want to hear if he has a plan to deal with it. He might convince you that he has it under control.”

What’s the likelihood of that?

“I wouldn’t expect it to be real high,” he said. “Most of these guys don’t know what to do with the first dollar they make. If this kid could follow a plan, he wouldn’t be in this situation in the first place. … I know this movie. It usually doesn’t end well.”

Maybe Janoris Jenkins will be different but he has the smell of Travis Henry to him.

Apparently he produces off the field.

Still, a QB shouldn't be taking a pounding like that. Cam took some crazy hits last season. And while his frame may be able to take the hits, it doesn't mean that he can't get hurt if he takes a helmet or shoulder to the knee.

A lot bigger? He has Vick by about 8LBS. Tebow's a big boy, but even suffered a punctured lung against the Pats and wouldn't have been able to play in the AFC Championship if they beat the Pats. RGIII is going to get hurt and hurt often if he doesn't change the way he plays. "Seems to run directly into contact" is one of the red flags on him, and he may have similar speed to Vick, but not the shiftiness.

I know he's not a run first guy, but people seem to be getting a little too excited about his ability to extend plays with his feet. I like it too as long as he becomes an expert in sliding and running out of bounds. Otherwise, he will become an injury liability.

Rothlisburger and Romo extend plays and they aren't out hurt every week. If he "runs directly into contact" why is he not seen as an injury liability? Why are we getting too excited about his ability to extend the play with his feet? 4.41 40 time not fast enough for your liking?

Speed kills. See Michael Vick and the number of games he misses each year.
There is no doubt that Griffin is a fearless/borderline reckless runner in the same vein as Vick or Jake Locker.
Griffin is gonna have to learn to pick and choose his spots and show better judgement on when to take a hit to get extra yards vs when to get as much as he can and get down before contact.
Its a function of decision making, Cam Newton is an excellent decision maker in this regard.
For as much as Cam runs its his ability to avoid taking hits that I find impressive.

But I think you're going to far when you imply that Vick's injuries are due to his running and that Griffin would have a similar injury history.
Its an easy assumption to make but the accuracy of the assumption is what my eyes and memory tell me to question.

How many of Vick's injuries occured in the pocket vs outside the pocket?
I recall Vick gettin hit in the pocket this past season.

Which makes me question how many of his injuries are a direct result of his scrambling?
How many of Vick's injuries are due to recklessness more then the actual scramble itself?

Or maybe Vick is just injury prone much Matt Schaub a pocket passer with a similar injury background.
I think by and large the more injury causing hits happen inside the pocket then outside the pocket.

Romo slides and Big Ben is a lot bigger and so is Cam Newton. Someone said RGIII was a lot bigger than Vick, when he's actually a whopping 8 LBS heavier. No one cares about Romos and Ben's 40 time. And the Mannings, Brady and Drew Brees can extend plays too without running head on into traffic.

All I said was I'd make sure to emphasize sliding and getting out of bounds if I were the QB coach for the team that drafted RGIII. And no, I don't care how fast he is. I rattled off the last 12 QBs to win the Super Bowl, and none of them won because they were fast.

I don't have it handy, but I did read that one of the few red flags was that when he did run, he didn't make much of an effort to avoid contact. He suffered a concussion on a running play while attempting to slide and had the season ending knee injury on another.

As a matter of fact, you can read some concerns expressed here about him holding onto the ball too long taking unnecessary hits and some issues with fumbling.

Robert Griffin III, Baylor, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com

Again, all I said initially was that sliding and getting the hell out of bounds would be priorities #1 and #2 in his development plan.

RGIII is still putting weight on his frame. He's filled out some just since the end of the regular season. He'll get bigger.

But your basic point is correct: any team that spends a #2 pick on RGIII has to teach him to guard his health.

Fair enough. Just watching Vick play though, he seems to take a lot of punishment on running plays that may not necessarily take him out of the game, but may impact his production. I like RGIII, because he seems capable of being an elite passer, not because he's fast and can jump high. All I'm saying is that his mobility is only a bonus if he can avoid contact as much as possible. As a starting QB, he would be too valuable to miss games.

I'm still gonna go on record and say if we weighted Vick right now he would be closer to 200lbs if not under it.

RGIII is just more solidly put together than Vick, and he'll undoubtedly put on more good weight as he gets a little older and fills out.
