What's important about it for a corner should be obvious. If you don't have the deep speed to match up with these wideouts running 4.3's and 4.4's then you're a liability to such routes. You got a 5'10 corner running 4.6's and he's pretty much undraftable. He runs 4.35? 4.4? He got a chance.
There is more of a leeway for bigger corners in the 6'2 range, Sherman is what...6'3? 6'4? So him running 4.5's isn't a red flag, it's actually prett impressve.
These guys run with pads cleats on. They can play numerous downs where stamina and fatigue come into play. They aren't sitting at a start line running straight line in track outfits on a track untouched.
Eh, he had a poor combine result. 4.50 speed is okay but his bench press was terrible.
Dude threw everything away this past year...
Poor? No he didnt. He just has a poor bench result. Which to me says he isnt strong but being on an NFL under a strength and conditioning program suggest he can improve that over time. So not that big of a deal. He did well in the DB drills which is far more important. Caught the ball like a WR effortlessly. He'd be a solid Safety, CB? Not so much. Thats where I'd put him. He'd be worth a 3rd rd pick to me.
Landry will be lucky to go in rd 2. And to say no one will trade for the #1 is silly. It doesnt take much for a prospect to get loved by a team and they feel he wont be there for them. Not that I support it but Eagles could trade for #1 because of LT Joeckle.
Take a difference maker up front like Shariff.
Is this the first time you typed this kids name?
Anyway Philly stand up and I reccommend people read Shariffs story. Really good read.
the top 3 tackles in this draft, Joeckle, Lane, Fisher, are all so close in terms of talent that it would be silly for the Eagles to trade up. They are guaranteed one at the 4 spot no matter what.
Joeckle has been the top tackle and mocked as the #1 pick far longer than those two. Fisher emerged thanks to the combine all because of his athleticism. So to think all 3 are on the same level? You must have inside scoop on teams draft boards or something. It doesnt take much for a team to fall in love with a prospect thats the point you are missing.
