    Scouting Yourself

    Its the off-season, nothing really to talk about so lets have some fun.

    For all those who played some sort of organized football, what would you say if you had to scout yourself? (Pros and Cons)

    I played High school Football in Brooklyn, NY (Brooklyn Panthers) and in Atlanta, GA (Rockdale County Bulldogs)

    Jabbar Avila CB/S #36
    Cornerback/Safety
    Height 6-1 Weight 178 (HS)

    Pros::
    Instincts are above average and reads plays well off the snap. Smooth backpedal has surprisingly quick feet, wouldn't anticipate that due to his height. Stays home in zone coverage. Ok leaping ability, not great. Can run with most WR's at his level. Long arms will get alot of deflections.

    Cons::
    Not big on contact ,goes mostly for the legs of bigger opponents. Drops INTs frequently. Has good speed but takes awhile to get up there. Wouldn't line him up in man coverage too frequently. At 6-1 can add more weight to his frame. Really a true Safety plays Corner to fill team needs. Wouldn't hold up against D-1 competition.


    .......................And that's why i went to college as a full-time student. LOL

    Kevin Castro
    6'0
    175 lbs

    Pros: Great technician and a savvy overall player. Extends his arms against press, drops his pad level, and accelerates in his routes. Kevin can set up corners by changing speeds/being lethargic before making a break at full speed. Has great vision on the field and can settle in soft spots. Knows how to be sharp and make crisp, 90 degree breaks out of his cuts. Good hands catcher

    Cons: Not a great athlete, an overachiever. Doesn't have great quickness, elusiveness, explosiveness, or strength. Inconsistent hands. Not a vertical threat. Needs to set up corners to beat them most of the time. Poor upside. Doesn't have great leaping skills or elite hands. Not fearless over the middle. Pretty productive, high floor but limtied ceiling

    Mind you, this is based back in HS 4 years ago

    Ophnell Cumberbatch
    5' 8", 220 Lbs
    225- ten reps
    4.8 in the 40- ***(only if I had a rocket up my ***)


    Pros- Instinctive runner, great initial burst, elusive, shifty, great cut back runner. consistent ability to make the first tackler miss. surprising ability to break tackles. can run WR routes.

    Cons- below average top end speed- I mean this kid is effing sloooooooooow! Not a real home run threat. inconsistent blocker. He keeps telling me he wants to play QB, pre-game Jagerbomb ritual is totally unacceptable.
    In the tough times we find out who we are.
