Blackmon to TO? eaaaasy there cowboy.. I see more of a Boldin


Tannehill to Rivers? Why? How?

I don't see Lynch. Richardson seems to play faster than Lynch ever has. JMO.

And Floyd is more like Fitzgerald. Not an Elite prospect like Larry, but games are similar in a lot of ways.

Chargerfn909 04-26-2012 12:24 PM

I see Floyd as a Bowe/BMarsh. Big, physical, and good YAC's.

High praise! I like Irvin a lot too though.

Marshawn without the gf-beating police rcd. Could've been worse for Richardson though (LaGarette Blount)

Cutler's arm is stronger than Tannehill's but I don't think Eli's is. And I think Tannehill's pocket presence and "I'll just toss it up and let my receiver make a play" style of play are similar to Eli. And I think you underestimate just how accurate Tannehill is; last year the Green Bay Packers had the worst drop percentage in the NFL with 8.3%, Tannehill's receivers dropped 11.9% of his passes (thats 64) and had they "only" dropped 8.3% Tannehill's completion percentage would've been 65%.

Stephan Hill ---> Lee Evans

killxswitch 04-26-2012 12:57 PM

Is Evans really that fast?

I like the Hakeem Nicks comparison for Blackmon. I also think Marvin Jones is similar in terms of playing style to Chad Ochocinco. Doug Martin reminds me a bit of Ray Rice.

I love the Marvin Jones to Ochocinco comparison. I've been saying this for weeks now. Hopefully Jones doesn't change his name...

Melvin Ingram = James Hall

Similar size. Always a reliable defender but only has 2 seasons with 10+ sacks.

Justin Blackmon = Pro ready version of Roddy White

Exact same triangle numbers. Sure bet to get you 1,000 a year. Somehow has a knack of breaking tackles. I just don't think Blackmon will take 2-3 years to become a player like White.
