Redwine was on my watchlist here . but this was not pretty
A few thoughts: don't get too caught up in 1v1s. Everyone loses reps here and there. Watch for tendencies and repeat mistakes, sure, but keep in mind that the coaches may have asked to see a particular technique -- there are many reasons for poor reps. I'll never forget how I overreacted to seeing Sherman roasted deep in the Senior Bowl practices, but he was still learning the position. He's been the best vertical corner in the league for nearly a decade, but I wrote him off after an awful rep.
Redwine was asked to play more man coverage than he's used to, but he's still a solid safety. I like his game. Raymond got open there, but I still don't like his film.
Allen thrives as a strong presence throughout the game. He may not look as good in this situation, and people will call him a tweener with limited upside, but he's a perfect fit here as far as I'm concerned.
Deiter played every position on the oline in college. He lacks a bit of an anchor, and he never got to refine his craft at a single position, but I don't care that he lost a bunch of 1v1s. Scar + the conditioning staff could turn him into another Thuney. I'm more concerned about technique and coachability than particular reports.
Best thing to do is watch the practice videos instead of believing someone's summary. I roll my eyes reading so many contradictory reports. I enjoy seeing traits that translate, but I try to remember that it's just one more piece of the puzzle.
Great take. I actually give very little thought on 1v1's in these events outside both lines.
Incl. WRs. WRs have to beat D, not man, even if its man cov. We've seen a nice example the other night..
Agreed about Redwine and Z.Allen.. Posted bc those are some reservations on Allen many have and since he is as PTP as it gets
The Senior Bowl just started a minute ago. It's on the NFL Network.
Sweat making some money. He's been applying pressure and shutting down the run.
@long distance You'll be happy to know that Allen blocked an extra point.
Saunders... that's unreal
I love Mike Edwards. One of my favorite safeties in the entire draft. Great job completely smothering Hart on that wheel route.
That's a great throw from Lock
The kickers don't look good this game. I wonder if there's a bad wind or something. Doesn't look like the flags are moving much on the uprights.
Wish McLaurin couldn't have hung on to the TD pass. He needs to pull that in if he wants to
improve his stock. He's fast and has some real potential if his hands improve.
LT for the North looks comfortable
Deebo Samuel got held and grabbed on that route. That's about the only way they've been able to slow him down this week.
Isabella is quick... could be an interesting guy for us.
Hunter Renfrow seems a patriot guy.
Penny Hart... they gotta get him the ball
Sloppy football all around. I hope the second half shows improvement!
There’s not been one single QB I have liked so far... I’m hoping the 2nd half changes. Been quite disappointing so far
@reamer @long distance
I dont believe NE runs 1v1 in practice during camp/practices fwiw. Or at least they don't prioritize them.
Pollard would be a nice change of pace guy. Not sure if he checks out as WR or RB
Isabella had his man beat there in the slot.
#90 Texas DL - can’t spell his name.
That’s a patriot type play there
Andy Isabella in space is ridiculous...
Separate names with a comma.
