Re: Draft talk rounds 2-3

Amerson:

Strengths
Possesses size, physicality and athleticism to be a starting NFL defensive back. Very confident, attacks aggressively down hill, both in jumping routes, and in defending the run. Receiver-like ball skills allow him to high-point passes on jump balls and make quarterbacks pay for trying to fit a ball between levels of zone coverage. Also adjusts well to low and wide throws despite his size. Flashes agility. Will pop receivers to dislodge the ball and running backs coming to his side of the field. Wrap-up tackler, closes quickly to the ball when attacking receivers in off-coverage and against east-west runs. Works through receiver blocks in the run game with strong hands and quickness.
Weaknesses
Some teams will project him to safety unless he proves hip flexibility, agility, and speed in workouts. Backpedal will be tested by quicker receivers eating up his cushion at the next level. Takes time to transition forward from pedal, comes out of his breaks a bit slow. Can be deceived by double moves. Doesn't display run assignment integrity. Plays a lot of off-coverage and zone, needs experience in the man and press coverages in which he should excel given his physical ability.

Only McShay said that and he hates everything we do apparently. I like the pick.

Maybe they figured Thomas or Rambo will be around in the 3rd/4th.

I like his size and speed. Don't know much of anything on him, listening to NFL network sounds like he is a bigger Hall, eager for picks, not a straight coverage guy.

This guy sounds like Hall. Gets burned but also grabs a lot of Ints.

I'm with you. He's never impressed me. Still, he has all the makings of a stud FS. If haslett didn't think he could be coached up, we wouldn't have picked him.

Re: Draft talk rounds 2-3

Well I never heard of him but certainly not a "reach" like pick according to the draft sites. Playmaker at corner with size and speed. I can definitely live with that, even if it is a corner.

Re: Draft talk rounds 2-3

In regards to Amerson...

Some teams will project him to safety unless he proves hip flexibility, agility, and speed in workouts.

So... possible safety?
