Thread: Hosley?

    Hosley?

    Why not Massie
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Raiders just took another tackle that's not Massie. Clearly something is up with him.

    hosley was a first round talent. he'll be our nickel corner day 1.
    he has elite body control, stops on a dime. stays on the wr's hip.

    he's 5'10, 180. needs to put on weight if he wants to move outside. but he is capable of being our nickel corner day 1.

    I forgot about him. AMAZING first 3 rounds...JR has done it again!

    I don't mind the pick, don't know a lot about him but 9 picks two season ago, clearly he has ball skills. He's good insurance if T2 doesn't return to form or gets re-injured. Mayock just said he's mainly a nickel corner, so that works

    Re: Hosley?

    Overview:
    Hosley is an early entry junior who was a very productive corner for
    Virginia Tech throughout his career. He is undersized but plays with
    tenacity and a sense of urgency when around the ball. Hosley is an
    extremely scrappy player who finds a way to make an impact from the
    boundary corner position. He could be a late riser in the draft and
    needs to prove that he can add weight to his frame to compete with NFL
    size, but he has late first-round value and should find playing time in
    nickel packages right away.

    Strengths

    Hosley is an excellent zone corner who has a ton of range and playmaking ability around the ball.

    OVERVIEW
    Hosley is an early entry junior who was a very productive corner for Virginia Tech throughout his career. He is undersized but plays with tenacity and a sense of urgency when around the ball. Hosley is an extremely scrappy player who finds a way to make an impact from the boundary corner position. He could be a late riser in the draft and needs to prove that he can add weight to his frame to compete with NFL size, but he has late first-round value and should find playing time in nickel packages right away.
    ANALYSIS
    STRENGTHS Hosley is an excellent zone corner who has a ton of range and playmaking ability around the ball. He has good field awareness to sniff out receiver screens and is quick reacting when the ball is thrown. He is consistently involved in the play and has good length to disengage receivers from the ball. Hosley is deceptive as a hitter and can deliver a serious blow for having such a small frame. He has an impressive bubble and is a very bouncy athlete who can change directions on a dime. He is capable of smothering at the line using his hands and technique, and can stay in a receiver's hip in-phase. He is a scrappy player who employs an unconventional shuffle step and technique in general, but he finds a way to make impact plays.
    WEAKNESSES Hosley is very thin and could get abused by the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and other big receivers. He has unconventional footwork that could get him in trouble against quicker athletes. He can get lost at times when working with his back toward the ball and needs to be placed within the right scheme to be an effective player.

    Reportedly, Hosley failed a drug test recently. #nyg
