What, no love for Knile Davis of Arkansas
Mike Glennon is an average, maybe slightly above average college QB IMO and will be a terrific banker, CPA or lawyer someday.
He , IMO , will either not get drafted or will be late pick but I simply cant see him on an NFL squad. Perhaps I am wrong.
Seems like somebody on UNC has the attention of the Jets.Jake Steinberg @Steiny31
A #Jets scout was at the North Carolina - Virginia game last night, making it the third time a #Jets scout attended a UNC game this year.
Could it be?
I'm a Carolina fan and grad, and I have had a decent read on their players over the last 7-8 years.
While they were in school, the two guys who I thought were the best pro prospects were Robert Quinn then Hakeem Nicks. If you don't know who Robert Quinn is, you will sadly know it by the end of Sunday's game. He already has 8.5 sacks this year. I always thought he had All-Pro potential while I thought Nicks had Pro Bowl potential. He had velcro hands and while his timed speed wasn't great, he was never caught from behind in college.
Gio Bernard is quickly approaching Quinn/Nicks status and would be an ideal fit for this offense. He can run, catch, block, and return punts with the best of them. He just has such amazing balance and vision and always churns his legs. He is a true three down back. The only "knock" is that he plays behind an excellent offensive line.
I havent watched Bernard as much as you, but have seen him enough to agree with your analysis of him. Kid looks like he could be a good pro.
I've signed a little bit of Gio, not alot though. Have been impressed when I do see him.
Tony Pauline called him "Kendall Hunter with a little bit of Curtis Martin"
Hey if that's the case sign me up immediately lol
Seems this argument is always made about a particular position, most often RB. "You can always plug in a mid-to-late rounder at RB and be fine." Jets have struck out with three straight picks in the mid rounds.
There's a reason why guys like Doug Martin typically aren't available in the 3rd round or later, and there's a reason why guys like that change the fortunes of an entire offense.
If the Jets really like an RB in the draft and take him early, there's really no reason to question the pick unless it's a true reach or a even better fit has slid down the board for some reason. Who's more likely to help Mark Sanchez in 2013 - Doug Martin or Vic Ballard?
I have an ongoing friendly debate with CMART about drafting.He cites reports etc and I say we should do better than just read reports. That said...am just a simple accountant but IMO Glennon is not an NFL QB. .neither was TJ Yates and he played well for Texans but is not a starter.
Glennon does not IMO pass the smell test. VLAD doesn't either but he was a 2nd because draft reports said he was a 2 nd. How'd that workout?
I watched Glennon's game film against UNC and he looked pretty damn good against them.
