He definitely will be with us at least 2 years, whether it's on practice squad or roster because it will take Reyes more than 1 year to develop as TE considering the fact that he has no football experience. We moved very quickly to sign him and even threw in the guarantees, I think that is a sign that WFT believes in Reyes's potentials.

If, and it is a big if, he has the same potential as Gates did, there's no reason he can't be on the roster come season start. Gates didn't explode until his 2nd season but he showed enough in limited action his first season to give everyone pause for thought.

Re: Post draft breakdown

Wonder if Reyes would be safe on PS given how many teams were chasing his signature, look at some of the TE rooms around the league

Likely not, there was a lot of interest in him. Ron pounced first.

Re: Post draft breakdown

Probably just a ST/depth move, but I HATE our 5th round pick tackling technique: Mark Bullock Darrick Forrest breakdown

Re: Post draft breakdown

7th round pick Bradley-King seems to have a lot of potential, displays good effort, good depth move

Re: Post draft breakdown

One of the good surprise with Dyami Brown is his run blocking abilities !

Agreed, but I see all that as bad coaching. Admittedly you expect a S prospect out of college to be coached up in the basics of tackling and reading the field, but I see a guy who's fired up to go and make plays with his speed and ability to hit and hasn't been coached to bring technique and brains to the party and measure his play to what the opposition is doing.

i.e. Where he's out of position on that TD run, he should be coached up to read the OL at the snap, and check his movement so he doesn't get out of position. It looks like C1 Robber, so he has no need to drift across with the motion as the SS is dropping into the hole and will pick up the motion man if he turns upfield. He therefore has deep midfield coverage and run fit responsibility to his side. But he keeps moving even though there's no likely deep middle threat at the snap and that puts him out of position. With both guards firing out his first read there should be run, so plant and come downfield to the LOS and find the RB. Once he's out of position its too late.

Now if he sat down with the WFT coaches and they asked him what he did wrong there, if he said something along those lines, I'd say he's eminently coachable and his raw talent means he has real potential. If he can't see and correct those behaviours then he won't last long. Right now he still looks better than Apke!

I'm with you that at least part of it is on coaching... But consistent tackling is part technique part instinct IMO. I want DBs that love wrapping people's ankles crocodile roll style.

Out of position is another deal, way more coachable IMO.

Re: Post draft breakdown

Listened to several post first practice interviews with the new draft class. While most of the questions/answers are fairly generic, but I was still impressed with the quality of answers, thoughtful and clearly expressed. If you want to watch a fun interview, watch Sammis Reyes interview.

Dyami Brown

Could be the steal of the draft. I know itís early but I think we could have knocked it out the park again with 3rd round WR.

Watching him come out of breaks and his hands snatch it out the airÖhe never waits for the ball to get there, he goes and gets it.

Of course, the video in the Twitter feed go to 14 seconds

He's a stud. What a steal. Gladly would have taken Brown in the 2nd round.
