Comparing their stats will of course favor Donald. He played an up the field 3-tech at Pitt who was asked to get into the backfield every down, Jernigan played Nose at FSU.
Sure, as well as everyone else who's familiar with him.
Really? Give me one scouting report where it has Jernigan described as a "high motor" player. You don't recall people talking about him taking plays off and taking himself out of games because he was tired? Go watch all of his 2013 games like I have and then honestly tell me he doesn't coast a lot during games.
There's one and I really don't have the time to go searching through to find scouting reports, especially when it's in regards to something so obvious as to him giving great effort.
Jernigan's conditioning continues to bother me.
It bothered me in the national championship game. I realize that was blamed on the flu or something.
The additional concern is that he also was "winded" in his Pro Day workout according to Brandt.
If I am going to spend a top choice on a 1-technique, his conditioning better not be an issue.
I do not want to see Nick Hayden on the field any more than we have to. If Jernigan is the nose, he needs to be out there on all three downs if needed.
That report in particular mentioned slow get off the ball and tight hips. Might not be impressive for what we want.
All you have to do is watch him play.
He takes plays off, generates like zero pressure, and can't get off a block to save his life.
Thank you, somebody that actually watches the players instead of just listening to the "experts" and assuming.
Gives me a massive Spears flashback.
I was thinking the same thing. Strong but not a bull, good athlete but not explosive, coasts or disappears for long stretches.
If the team thinks that melton fills the niche Donald would fill, I would not have us go after Jernigan. Im starting to think Tuitt is the answer for our dline. He has athleticism and can play over 300, or as low as even 285. He is as big as Hageman, but more athletic. Could be moved around every play.
Tuitt is an intriguing player. He also seemed a little out of shape this past season. I think he easily slips out of the first and could be right there in the second.
if the team feels these are true then you dont touch the guy at 16
I absolutely agree. I would bring him in for a workout and if he gets winded then, off my board entirely.
to have melton and Donald wow that would be an outstanding pass rush up the middle.
Don't think they would normally play at the same time though.
But yes, at least on paper, the DT3 iwould look locked up for years to come.
no you definitely can run a 33 if you have both crashing the A gap..... its actually pretty deadly too. lol
That would be more like an 11 and that is the type of stuff Missouri was doing with Ealy.
If they were on the field together in the nickel and alternated at the 3 on base downs, they would each get about 67% of the snaps.
