As the dog days of summer continue, for 3more weeks, I don’t recall a topic like this one.
So, article says slow down on Malcolm and Kirby. The article doesn’t say they are bad but not as great as many fans have said. I believe that includes several Den posters when it comes to Malcolm.
So who you got?
Maybe after several names are offered up by posters @Jman , the other guy, can do a poll with the most posted names.
Rodrigo was an awesome feel-good story. He didn’t have the greatest year but he was decent. I think most people who pay attention know that he’s got room to grow and isn’t a sure thing as a primary cog in this defense yet.
Kirby on the other hand…I’m pretty pumped about him. If he can build on what he did last year, he’s going to be…
To view Levi as most over rated means some have actually rated him positively I’m not sure I have seen anyone view him in that manner.
If anything, most view him as BH first, potentially, biggest draft bust which automatically excludes him from overrated going into the season.
There you go. He has one NFL catch and one NFL carry in what will end up being halfway through his sophomore season. Not to be harsh on the young man, but that isn’t production. That’s one NFL catch and one NFL carry.
With that said, I am not putting him on this list because he doesn’t have a large enough sample-size on the books. His two plays were electric (and should have been a third) and I expect that to continue eventually.
I will go with J Jefferson. I’m well aware none of us think he’s a world beater, but anytime the topic comes up just as many people here want Jefferson as they do Reynolds. And let me stress this part - in my opinion - it’s not even close.
I’m probably the most Levi-positive person here and even I would say he’s mostly just a huge question mark at this point. If he can stay healthy and provide some pash rush from the interior even as part of a rotation, I’d be happy at this point.
I’ll go with KerJo…many expect him to be an all-pro. I see him as better than average. Jamo next, but I think expectations on him have gone way down. I think most people realize MRod is a rotational piece, so I don’t think he’s overrated anymore.
Agree 100% on Rodrigo. He’s good against spread teams but not ideally suited to power teams. There is some upside but he will never have the top end potential of Campbell.
Kirby has upside still as a ball hawk. I think he’s somewhat limited playing the run and could be relegated to more passing downs if we have a better run stuffing option, especially earlier in the game.
