Just put it up
[/quote] Great Vid... I really think Greg Jones is on the giants radar... Hes just so darn active, even on some of the tape, when hes not making the play, hes right around it, and in solid positon... Sure, theres some weaknesses, but there is for every player, that is the type of LB i would like to see... U put him on our team in RD 2or3, and add say, KJ Wright or Akeem Ayers for the SLB positon,and watch out...
He is a good player for sure. I certainly wouldnt mind him on this team. He isjust a plugger.
But, my concern with him isnt exactly with him as much as it is with us. I consider SLB our biggest need not only at LB, but on the whole team. I dunno bout you, but I do not see him capable of playing SLB. I do not think he is tall enough nor do I think he is nearly as effective moving backwards. He really shines in traffic(thats a really good thing for 43 MLB.)
So, if we took him, I would be happy, but only if we also got a guy to fill the SLB position.
What do you think? You think this kid can play OLB. He would be giving up 6+ inches to TEs. That would be hard to overcome in coverage.
He is fine with everything in front of him. He is a downhill LB. He blitzes real well and should make impact plays behind the line.However The added bulk has left him really stiff. His best spot is inside in a 3-4. I still say the Steelersishis best landing spot. I think Jones could be very productive in the right system and does not fit all NFL teams[/quote]
Ya thats my point. I love him in traffic. I love him as a stout MLB. But, we have a MUCH bigger need right now at SLB and that, he is not. So taking him would be a value pick over a need pick. it wouldnt bother me at all, because he is so good at what he does, I just dont think we can ignore the glaring need at SLB for very long in this draft. There just arent that many guys that can contribute early as a SLB in this class.
KJ wright , on the other hand, could be both value and need. In my opinion, there are 3 guys in this draft who can legitimately step in and help us at SLB: Ayers, Carter(although injury may prevent immediate help) and Wright. Anyone else is going to be a work in progress for that position. There are guys who could end up very good, but they arent going to do it right away. We need right away, especially considering the potential lack of an offseason camp to learn the position.
