  • The Next Richard Sherman?

    This link shows Richard Sherman against the then freshman, Robert Woods. I counted 5 catches for 65 yards and 2 TD in man against Sherman. He also juked out Sherman in his zone for a 50+ yard TD.

    HOW the **** did Sherman become an all pro?? lol

    This makes me look at David Amerson, a guy who has gotten his fair share of burns, but has excellent ball skills and length (5/8" longer arms than Sherman) for the cb position. He tested phenomenally at the combine and it's definitely a position of need. Also you gotta think he could easily make the switch to safety if need be. After seeing the above video, would you take a chance on Amerson in the 2nd?

    If Rhodes is gone in the first, I think there are enough solid mid-round cb's to wait to rounds 3-5. Id rather fill another need at 49th overall. That said, Id trust in JR if that was his guy.
    2017 Draft Wishlist:
    1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
    2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
    3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
    4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson
    5. Ryan Glasgow DT Michegan
    6. Chad Kelly QB Ole Miss
    7. Billy Brown WR Shepherd

      Although theres decent CB depth....Webster's better days are behind him, Id prefer picking a CB 1-3, anything from the 4th & on theres a very good chance of picking up another waste of space...

        True for most positions but especially for CBs

          Amerson would be a terrible safety. He can't tackle and he takes some of the worst angles I've ever seen.

            The whole point of this thread though was to show how bad Sherman looked yet he's an all pro. Amerson could have that potential with his ball skills.

              Well I watched that video and the most noticeable thing right away is how they are using Sherman. He doesn't press at the line at all. That's why he's so good in the nfl, he mugs guys all over the field.

              A lot of those catches simply were not Sherman's fault.

              And as for his tackling, Sherman looks like a WR on the field. Which is what he was

                Isn't that the same way they played Amerson though?

                  First off just want to say I've always liked Robert Woods and think he's a majorly underrated in this years draft (according to mocks and analysts I've read).

                  On the subject of Amerson, I really don't like his style. As already mentioned he takes horrible angles, plays too loose and takes way too many chances. IMO He's the guy that relies too much on his natural ability than overall technique. His gamble sometimes pays off but that's not the type of corner that gives a team security in a CB locking down his side of the field.

                  Amerson could go on to have a great career and prove me wrong but he's not a guy at the moment I'm feeling too good about. Especially in the range he's being projected at in the 2nd round. He's a pass for me.

                      Speaking of Woods, wasnt he talked up as a Top 15 talent about a year ago?

                        You are asking for different things. Press CB is a totally different skill set than a safety.

                        Sherman would not be a good safety at all.


                        Amerson's skill set is that of an off corner, but he is likely too aggressive and easily beaten on double moves to play their in the NFL. And he does not have the tackling and ability to take sound angles that would let him play safety.

                        Its the tweener type guys like Amerson or Mathieu that dont have one specific skill set that you can rely on that fall in the draft because they are basically unknowns. Same reason Sherman went in the 5th round.

                          Sherman was never a solid change of direction CB which is common for guys his size. You can even see how aggressive he can be in receivers' routes. It works in Seattle, not in Stanford.

                            Almost all USC players were higher prior to his past season starting.

                              Yeah....A lot of people had him in thier top 10 before last year. Marqise Lee became the focal point of the SC offense this year and Woods' production went down. I watched nearly all the Southern Cal games and Barkley stared down Lee for a good portion of the games. Woods was open a lot but just didn't get the looks or targets.
