Round 5, Pick 160 – Tulsa CB Reggie Robinson II I know what you’re about to say: “Waiting until the fifth round to draft a cornerback?”
When you look at all of the cornerbacks on the Chiefs’ Super Bowl-winning roster, how many of them were drafted in the first round?
Kendall Fuller – third round Tyrann Mathieu – third round Bashaud Breeland – fourth round Rashad Fenton – seventh round Charvarius Ward – Undrafted Kansas City can find starting-caliber talent at the CB position without spending top draft capital.
Another Senior Bowl standout, Robinson is a tough corner that plays extremely physical at the line of scrimmage. He’s a hard-nosed tackler with a good presence to come up and lay a hit on a ball carrier. His ball skills are probably one of the more underrated parts of the game, but I feel like he does a solid job locating the football once it’s in the air.
Robinson is also a stud special teamer with four blocked kicks during his collegiate career. That’s something that you have to consider once you get past the middle rounds of the draft.
Boy GR we are going to haver a power list to draw from that's been stronger than recent drafts.
SPECIAL GOOD NEWS BAD NEWS EDITION!
Good News I've been working on cornerbacks all day. I've found two guys that interest a lot...
1)Reggie Robinson, CB, Tulsa Height: 6-1. Weight: 197. Projected 40 Time: 4.49. Projected Round (2020): 3-5. 1/11/20: Robinson has the potential to be a riser in the process because he is a tall cornerback with speed and athleticism. He totaled four interceptions, 13 passes broken up, and 38 tackles during his senior year. The previous three seasons he had 21 passes broken up. Robinson has a good skill set and could develop into a starting outside cornerback. He's a sleeper pick that could be a steal.
2) Former Oklahoma State cornerback A.J. Green will have another opportunity to showcase his talents to pro scouts at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine. I have a well trusted source who likes to pick unheard of guys and he tells me that this kid can get a little stronger and be a great player! According to a tweet from the Cowboy Football Twitter account, Green was invited to participate in the event which is held annually at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Feb. 23 - March 2.
Ok Now for the BAD NEWS-
Oklahoma’s Parnell Motley snubbed from 2020 NFL Combine-! NO!!! This guy is smooth! Booooooo!
This truly feels like a snub that could hurt Motley’s soaring draft stock. WHY? The former Oklahoma corner impressed many towards the end of the 2019 season, and that continued in the early stages of the draft process.
In 2019, the former Oklahoma corner finished with 13 pass break ups, one interception and five forced fumbles. Motley was a key cog to Oklahoma’s defensive success in and shut down his side of the field in most of the Sooners games. THIS IS WRONG!!!
The 2020 NFL Draft commences on April 23 and ends on April 25 from Las Vegas, Nevada. It remains to be seen if Motley will be drafted, but people close to the situation have told me that it would be a shock if he isn’t drafted come April.<--By The darn Giants!

Inside Linebacker or Outside Linebacker? In the draft I say outside! And to do that we have to do something we talked about much earlier... Remember moving Lorenzo Carter Inside... I think this could be brilliant! We already talked about it GR.. but on the way back in from the airport saw this!
Kicking Lorenzo Carter inside could give the NY Giants a whole new look and feel at linebacker while allowing Dave Gettleman to get more creative this offseason.
2018 NY Giants second-round draft pick Lorenzo Carter has been mostly what you’d expect from a second-rounder. At his best, he’s looked like a highly-effective pass-rusher and at his worst, he’s looked like a fringe starter.
What’s interesting when you analyze Carter’s game, however, is that he’s actually done better at the things he wasn’t supposed to be any good at than many realize. The former Georgia Bulldog has shown the ability to get after the passer, racking up 8.5 sacks and 23 QB hits in two seasons.
He’s also defended 9 passes in that time and made 88 tackles, 7 of them for a loss. He’s been a very solid run defender and has looked much more capable in pass coverage than anyone could have thought when he came out. Carter has been quiet, smooth, and fluid in his hips (scout guy term alert), which allows him to stick with tight ends and runningbacks.
I’d actually hypothesize that Carter would be an even more effective pass-rusher inside, as he’s not so much a pin-your-ears back type of rusher that a 3/4 defense usually calls for. Also, just having a player you feel confident can play either spot is a huge advantage for a defensive coordinator in general.
If Joe Judge and Patrick Graham are as big on versatility as they claim to be, kicking Carter inside to pair with Ryan Connelly could be the beginnings of a very interesting linebacking core.

This is concerning I just read this"
But not everyone is sold on Jones. Former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer is concerned that any success Jones enjoyed as a rookie will disappear with a sophomore slump in 2020.
“I’m excited,” Toomer said to RADIO.COM Sports’ “Home & Home” show on Thursday, via WFAN. “I just don’t know what we have in him. He had a couple good games early, but most quarterbacks when they get their first start they’re going to succeed because nobody has the book on them. They don’t know what they’re gonna do, don’t know what they like, what they don’t like; basically they’re playing honest. But more film, more defenses are allowed to cheat and take away tendencies, and that’s when usually quarterbacks will have four good games and all of a sudden go in the tank.”

Dave Gettleman insisted that Peppers, 24, be included in the Odell Beckham trade from Cleveland, so I’m sure the GM wants to pick up his fifth-year option for 2021, which the Giants must do by May 30. I’m not so sure that’s wise, though. There is a lot to love about Peppers’ work ethic, attitude, competitiveness and athleticism. But too often he overran plays in 2019 and did not get to the ball even if he was around it.
Maybe a new defense and head coach can harness his energy into more consistent production and find a permanent position home for the strong safety/linebacker/Swiss Army knife athlete. But the safety’s fifth-year option amount is projected by Over The Cap at just below $11 million right now. Peppers finished the season on injured reserve (back), and rookie Julian Love showed some promise at strong safety. Maybe Peppers’ early offseason approach, health and fit impacts how the Giants proceed.
This is entirely true. In fact one source says the GIANTS will select Wirfs outright! I think he is as I have been saying the #1 idea in a trade back scenario-- the fact that this article implies the Giants love Wirfs may be a way of saying as well-- the Giants love the idea of trading back!
How exciting is that! WELCOME BACK! California is full of garbage now... just like NY. Well my eyes have seen the west coast and the garbage along the highways because of the homeless encampments is an eye soar. The traffic is a huge pain in the rear. The traffic lights they are too many pf them. Every side street has speed bumps. I don't like the layout of the city it lacks a grid. It's impossible to know where you are going. My feeling is you can live in Los Angeles and not know what's going on right down the block. You drive to your destination and there's not a lot off browsing.
I did browse a real cannabis store and that was really weird and unique and different. I wanted to use that has my opener for college players; the article I wanted to write revolved around how hard is it to play sports in a state when you can walk into a store and buy natural outdoor flowers? I had difficulty engaging on this topic.
Frankenstein time! PFF annually does a cool thing they take all the best attributes from the receivers and list them as if cobbling together the perfect candidate.. lets take a peek at some of their work--
THE BEST HANDS- Hands – Hasise Dubois, Virginia-?WHO!
Hasise Dubois is currently an underrated wide receiver prospect but his calling cards are his strong hands. With 0 drops on 75 receptions last season and an impressive catch radius, there isn’t much that gets away from Dubois. Honorable Mention: Devin Duvernay.<-------
Best Body Control- Body Control – Isaiah Hodgins, Oregon State<-- NYG TARGET***
Part of the reason that Isaiah Hodgins is such an intriguing prospect is his work in the redzone. He is able to win in tight spaces with his body control. His fluidity on the ground and natural adjustments in the air are a work of art. Honorable Mention: James Proche.<-- Pats love!!
Best Rout Running- Route Running – Jerry Jeudy, Alabama
Jerry Jeudy is a true route salesman, who has a rare combination of acceleration and deceleration on stop routes. He’s a double-move artist, being able to sell initial breaks with the best of them, creating separation even from double coverage. Honorable Mention: Van Jefferson.<-------
BEST BLOCKER-- Stalk Blocking – Antonio Gandy-Golden, Liberty
Antonio Gandy-Golden’s physical profile leads to impressive potential as a blocker, and his effort results in positive production in that area. His strength along the boundary against smaller defensive backs allows him to create space for ball carriers.
While Justin Jefferson played a lot of snaps from the slot and bunch alignments, teams still tried to test him with press coverage. Whenever they did so, his flexibility and length combination allowed him to separate at the line of scrimmage with ease. Honorable Mention: Tyler Johnson.<------
Best Power-- Power – Jauan Jennings, Tennessee
Jauan Jennings is a bully as both a blocker and ball carrier, which was the main cause of his 30 broken tackles on just 59 receptions during his senior season. That figure led the country among all wide receivers. Honorable Mention: Antonio Gibson.<----
We can look at some of the honerable mentions as prime NYG targets: Gibson, Johnson, Van Jefferson, Proche & Duvernay

Update-) FOUR Risers.
Cameron Dantzler (CB – Mississippi State) When two or more of my sources are telling me the same thing we all must listen. When two or more bartenders echo the idea it usually happens-- This Cornerback has been mentioned to me as our Round 2 pick a lot.
Fantasy Pros says) Dantzler has become a hot name at the cornerback position over the last couple of weeks and I like what I see from him on film. He has really good size and length. He is also so smooth that it doesn’t seem like he is that athletic, but then he is always there to make a play on the ball. I am a big fan of his ability to play both man and zone with similarly effective results. Dantzler does a really good job of trusting his eyes in zone and has the reactive athleticism to stay with receivers in man. When it is all said and done I predict that Cam Dantzler will be fighting for a top-five cornerback ranking./ / /
Jeff Gladney (CB – TCU)
A player that Cam Dantzler is in battle with for one of the top five spots also makes the list. Jeff Gladney is a bit undersized, but he makes up for it with high levels of aggressiveness. He is always right in the receiver’s hip pocket and is always willing to take a chance to make a play on the ball. I think he was built to be a shutdown slot corner, but I wouldn’t be afraid to have him on the outside because of how aggressive he plays. He reminds me a lot of Jaire Alexander when he came out of Louisville. The already deep cornerback class has gotten even deeper after the last couple of weeks of February film review.
Stoned Comment: Gladney is open Review for later today!
Mekhi Becton (OT – Louisville)
Mekhi Becton has experienced an astronomical rise over the last couple of weeks. He went from a mid-round guy who may be “too big to have success” to a player in the argument for best at his position. Honestly, the rise is from people finally watching his film. On tape Becton looks like an amazing athlete as he is roughly 6’6″ 350 pounds, yet he never seems to get caught overextending. His body control is off the charts for his size, and really any size. He partners those movement skills with great power and you are left with one of the best offensive tackles in the draft. I just recently finished my film study of Becton and he secured my third offensive tackle spot behind only Wills and Wirfs. I am a huge fan of him along with the majority of NFL draft analysts./ / /
Stoned Comment: I think at this point I am the only guy taking the other side of this trade... I feel Becton will fall in the combine. I don't see him as athletic I could be wrong but when i watch the tape I see a guy who looks lost a lot. Field awareness if that was a category would be zero.
Lloyd Cushenberry III (IOL – LSU)
It is hard to not start out high on a player who was the center of the best offensive line in college football, but that is what seems to have happened. So far in the draft cycle, there hasn’t been an interior offensive lineman who has pulled away from the bunch as the best player of the group. Cushenberry has become one of the players who has entered the conversation since his 2020 Senior Bowl performance. Cushenberry has shown good vision in pass protection as well as a strong anchor to shut down most bullrushes. He also has good film of him getting to the second level and making impactful blocks consistently. To me, Cushenberry has climbed into early second-round consideration with a lot of draft process left to go.
Stoned Comment: Kush has to be my biggest riser he really has shined out. And it's huge position of need this is a NY Giant marriage made in heaven.

Update-) Lets Look at SomeOf The Latest Safety rankings Of Interest to us) ) )
#8. With A Bullet-> Jeremy Chinn, Southern Illinois 6-3, 219 NFL Combine What Matters: Size, size, size. He was a terrific tackler a the FCS level with the speed and potential to become a great mid-round prospect to develop. He might need seasoning, but one great workout with his size will push him into the fourth round or better.
#6. Kyle Dugger, Lenoir-Rhyne, 6-1, 220 NFL Combine What Matters: Blow … it … up. Talk all you want about playing at the lower-level – and everyone will – but a guy with this size and this speed and this sort of movement needs to get a much longer look. There’s no way to measure whether or not he can make the massive leap in competition, but it’s his job to look like he will.
#3. Antoine Winfield, Minnesota 5-10, 205 Why He’s Here On The List: Don’t compare him to his dad. Antoine Winfield Sr. was a special hitter for his size. Winfield Jr. is a phenomenal tackler, but he’s not going to bring a ton of pop. He led the Gophers with 99 stops – he doesn’t miss an open field tackle – and he’s phenomenal at always sniffing out the big plays when the ball is in the air. He might be seen as a bit undersized, though, and that matters because …
What The NFL Types Want To See: Can he hold up? He was banged up throughout his Minnesota career, but he managed to stay in one piece last year. The medical evaluations will be a part of his weekend, but it’s really going to be all about being able to run and move well enough to earn a top 50 overall pick.
Bottom Line: He’s a very smart, very good, very well-coached NFL defensive back who might not check all of the boxes, but will be a productive long-time starter who’ll fill up a stat sheet. He might have to be surrounded by big-time athleticism, but stick him in the defensive backfield and let him make things happen.
# 2. Xavier McKinney, Alabama 6-1, 200
Why He’s Here On The List: Bama’s leading tackler with 95 stops to go along with three picks, he got in on everything for the defense last season. A leader who’ll take over a defense, he fits every style, he makes big plays, and he’ll work into the system from Day One. He’s not the perfect safety prospect, but he’s not far off if he could do just a bit more when the ball is in the air.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Can he be among the most athletic safeties in Indy? This is his shot to go from being a solid first rounder with upside to a must-have top ten overall pick and the top safety off the board. It’s his job to generate a buzz.
Bottom Line: Teams will love him. He’s a quarterback and leader on the field who can make a D his, but he’s the ultimate tweener. He’s a potential dream of a free safety, but he’ll fit no matter what a team is looking for.
