Thread: Bitonti Caption about J. Weaver

  1. #1
    From Bitonti's piece...
    Jarrell Weaver S, Miami
    Faster than Vilma, Williams and McClover, Weaver stole the show at the Miami pro day running a blinding 4.37. At 6’0 207 the Jets will try to convert him to strong safety, and with those numbers, why not? Should he make the team his 40 would be better than all defensive backs besides Jon McGraw.

    _____

    Bit, Great stuff. I loved every word of it.

    In your caption about J. Weaver you wrote that if he were to make the team his 40 would be the fastest out of all the Jets DBs except for McGraw.

    :blink: How fast did McGraw run the 40? I thought he was slow.

    Can anyone say Ed Reed!

    No disrespect Bit but no way McGraw runs a sub 4.37 40....if he does then he's got the biggest dropoff from "40 time" to "game speed" in history.

    Scouting report from 2002..............he ran a 4.5 40. More importantly, see the write up on his range and coverage ability. McGraw will become a very good safety for the Jets. He needs a full, healthy season to blossom.

    actually his game speed is very good. He is very speedy and seems to be there to make tackles u(unlike Garnes who despite being instinctual, was always a split second late). mcGraw's problem is his frame. He is too frail to play the style he plays. Remember,as a rook, they really saw something special from him. Last year was a wash, unfortunately.

    He needs to learn how to tackle. He keeps his down, which can lead to injury.

    I think that the new D coordinator should be able to make this kid into a real player in the secondary, the kid seems to be a great athlete.

    i need to fire that damn fact checker

    nice catch with the 40 times, got confused i guess...

    my overall point was the JETS don't run all that well in the back 7...

    do the JETS sprint 1v1 in preseason?

    might have to get a lawn chair and camp out with a stopwatch to find out - ;)

    listen to this blurb out of Raider camp

    [quote][b]The Alameda Derby - Minicamp ended with the annual rookie race, this one with three 100-yard sprints and two 200-yarders. Former Cal cornerback James Bethea, a non-roster invitee, won every sprint. That helped earn him a preseason contract, which he signed after practice.

    Bit, nice work anyways.

    I am really excited about these two late Miami pickups.

    I think both will make the team this year.

    and I agree, our dbs are (still) slow

    At the Combine, McGraw ran a 4.47 with a 39.5" vertical leap, 10'3" broad jump and did 13 reps.

    HIs 40 time was the best of all the safeties in that draft.

    Tank williams was clocked between a 4.39 - 4.44 at the combine.

    Regardless, McGraw's combine was very good.

    I'll put my money on Jonathan Carter.

    He was the fastest man at the 2001 NFL Combine.

    Ran a 4.33 sec 40 on the slow Indy track.

    No other receiver broke 4.40 sec.

    By the way, saw in one of the minicamp pics, No. 84 in uniform, but with a knee wrap--NOT a brace.

    He must be okay.

    McGraw and Carter, skinny guys with talent, speed and a lot of heart. Too bad about the glass bones.

    :ph34r: McGraw was one of the faster DB&#39;s coming out but I did not know he was that friggin fast....if this kid stays healthy...watch out.

    Some of these draft picks are down right scary with great upsides...I mean I saw film on both late round DB&#39;s and damn&#33;&#33;&#33; These kids were studs in college for good programs.

    Friggin kudos to Bradway. This is another reason why the damn Patriots are successful.....they draft by more than 40 time etc.....I mean they make it out like Cotchery is slow&#33;&#33;&#33;

    In college I was a 6&#39;0. Defensive Back (Midd Tenn State) and i ran a 4.5 and I was considered fast&#33; People have to realize that being a DB is more than speed.....it&#39;s also technique....if you are a DB with 4.5 speed and you have good technique, you can make it. Many DB&#39;s in the league run a 4.5
