Posted: Thu Feb 24, 2005 3:27 pm Post subject: Which CB to draft? Rodgers, Miller, or other
If it came down to either one of these CBs, who would you rather have?
This info came from Scott Wright at nfldraftcountdown.com
-Carlos Rodgers (6-1 190)
Strengths: Excellent size and speed for the position...Tough player who will fight through injuries...Great athleticism...Good ball skills and has become a a playmaker as a senior...Has a lot of experience and made an impact early on as a freshman.
Weaknesses: Doesn't always play up to his physical tools...Isn't a great tackler...Not very stout against the run...Has a lot of work to do in terms of his technique...Needs to master the nuances of the position rather than relying on his physical gifts so much.
Notes: Has just the type of size / speed ratio you are looking for in an NFL corner...A bit of an underachiver throughout his career but came on as a senior...You can bet some team will be more than willing to take a chance on a player with his physical tools and he could go a little higher than his play on the field would suggest.
-Justin Miller (5-11 195)
Strengths: Playmaker in the secondary...Has great ball skills and a knack for making the big play...Very good speed and quickness...Fluid hips in coverage...Excellent athletic ability...Has a lot of experience despite being just a true junior...A threat to score every time he touches the ball...Physical and likes to hit...Also a dynamic return man.
Weaknesses: Only average size...Had a down year as a sophomore...Gambles too much in an effort to make the big play...Inconsistent and will lose his concentration...Had some off the field problems...Can be too confident for his own good.
Notes: Has just about everything the NFL is look for in a top cornerback...Not a finished product by any means, but a playmaker like this won't last long come Draft Day '05.
Which one and why??? _________________ Bradford....like it or not, it's going to happen
If the Rams select Bradford I'll jump off a very high building
I like Justin Miller and Pac Man Jones. The corners in this draft are so close, you have to look at other aspects of their game. Both of these guys will make plays in the secondary and are also excellent return men, something the Rams really need.
