Ok Colt Fans,
Here's a peek at what's coming to camp. I found what I believe to be the best. So here we go with video links and my thoughts on each player:
True player..David Caldwell - S out of William & Mary..sleeper who is a ball hawk that will hit a fool! He is nasty and a sure tackler. He definitely makes the team. Good bye Silva - He just didn't make the quantum leap his 2nd yr in the system.
Brandon James from Fla. is a special teams weapon that reminds me of Devin Hester....Wow! How did teams sleep on this one? He makes the team over Fisher in my opinion. Fisher is worthless as a CB and reminds me of Rushing (injury prone, smallish and great quickness but fragile) I hope Fisher and James both make it but advantage James....shoot me your vote
Brandon King CB from Purdue..nice ball skills and finishing tackler..sleeper..he makes the team too! Terrail Lambert better watch out for the 5th spot.
Edgerrin James' cousin "Baby J"! Rb from the U who possesses Great vision and balance (great pedigree too)..good # 2 back once Addai leaves maybe #3. Hate to say it but...Hart may be in trouble...definite practice squad addition if not on the active roster...give me your thoughts!
Thad Turner cb ohio ..aggressive corner..a bit of a thumper ...has a nasty streak. Needs to be coached up on making more plays on the ball but he will hit u and separate you from the ball..I like him..reminds me of Thomas out of USC in that way and his physicality is in line with Powers and Hayden....he could be a practice squad addition or a special teamer
Vuna Tuihalamaka, LB, Arizona good motor and great downhill thumper. Aggressive player with good speed, wraps up well and breaks down in space...another physical player with a bit of nastiness to him. I believe that was Toby Gerhart from Stanford he sent reeling. if so, how hot is that! He makes the team as a special teamer for now. Ramon Humber and Cody Glenn are on the bubble when he hits camp.
Thanks to Ty46, here is footage on CB/S Mike Newton
Very physical around the ball and seems to function well in zone coverage. I like his nose for the action. I would like to see him stick but I have to see our options at corner first. I think CB may be his best shot on this year's roster...but hey, throw them all in and let's see what comes out.
Overall, it'"s a good group that seem to be physical with a knack for making plays around the ball. In my opinion. we are adding physicality to our mantra of fast, smart, and physical. I like the edge that these group of players bring. Let me know your thoughts. Chow!
