Kansas City in the spring of 2017 Kyle Long Jerseys 2019 , when the Bears took Mitchell Trubisky eight spots higher than the Chiefs took Patrick Mahomes in the first round.And in case you haven’t noticed, Mahomes is playing OK right now, dare we say it, better than Trubisky.But Nagy said that the extra year in the Chiefs offense is a benefit for Mahomes 鈥?without needing to say out loud that Mahomes benefits from a better cast of offensive talent.“Well, what’s fair to compare is you have one, in Patrick, who has had a full year in this offense to understand it,” Nagy said, via Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune. “Now, regardless of playing it in, he’s had a full year White Pat O’Donnell Jerseys , more than a year to sit behind it and learn and understand and watch tape with those quarterbacks last year and get to see all the talk, all the discussions of where you go on this play and that play.“Whereas Mitchell hasn’t had that. He’s being forced into this thing right away, and so that’s where these growing pains are going to occur. That’s where, I just want to make it clear to him and to everybody, if you’re realistic about it, it does take a little bit of time. And in the meantime, as you saw last night, we have a defense that can help us out during this process, and so the sooner we get it and it starts clicking, then the better. But that’s the difference between the two, and it’s obviously near to see Patrick doing so well right now.”Of course Pat O’Donnell Jerseys 2019 , Trubisky was playing last year while Mahomes was watching Alex Smith, but the experiences aren’t otherwise comparable. Mahomes is running a system designed by Andy Reid, while Trubisky was playing under the aegis of John Fox and Dowell Loggains, and that just isn’t the same.And while his coach’s words aren’t as harsh as Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark‘s, the recognition that the bar isn’t set nearly as high for Trubisky will make it easier for him to clear it, even if that’s eventually. Fact: The Falcons draft can be totally unpredictable."Expect the Falcons to address their cornerback group and with that in mind, I present one of my favorite prospects in this class. It’s an important year for Falcons head coach Dan Quinn and you can say that he’s all in. Taking over the defensive coordinator role for the Falcons, Quinn has his sights set on improving a defense that was banged up last season but ranked 25th in scoring defense and 28th overall. One position that will most definitely get more than enough attention if they went that way is the cornerback spot. The position is one of the better ones in the NFL Draft but the Falcons may have more pressing needs to take a cornerback early, with the position only recently gaining steam among fans and draft analysts as a possibility. If they wanted to wait until late on day two or early on day three, I have a prospect in mind that fits the bill for what the Falcons are looking for. Sean Bunting Scouting Report Height: 6’1 Weight: 195 pounds Career stats: 104 total tackles, nine interceptions White Sam Acho Jerseys , 15 pass deflections, four forced fumbles Games watched: 2018 vs. Kentucky, 2018 vs. Toledo, 2018 vs. Akron, 2018 vs. Buffalo Strengths: Despite Central Michigan’s woes as a team in 2018, Bunting was a bright spot as he earned first team All-MAC honors. Bunting earned an invitation to the NFL Combine and received positive reviews after posting a 4.42 40-yard dash, a 41.5 inch vertical, and looking good in position drills. Bunting possesses good size and a lengthy 76 3⁄4 inch wingspan. That length comes in handy when tasked to play press man coverage as well as off coverage in Cover 3. His wide receiver experience in high school comes in handy, as Bunting is able to recognize route concepts quicker than a number of cornerbacks at this stage in their career. Bunting shows the capacity to flip his hips in transition and get vertical when need be against speedier receivers while also being rarely out of place because of his short area quickness. He also is not shy at getting physical at the line of scrimmage and provides a nice punch to get an initial jam on the receiver. When he’s able to clearly track the ball, Bunting shows the ability to disengage from coverage slightly to make a play on the ball and attacks it. Bunting can also be a useful weapon in run defense and will lay a shoulder in bringing down a ball carrier. Weaknesses: While he timed very well at the Combine in the 40-yard dash, film shows a prospect who plays with mid-4.5 speed. Overall Sam Acho Jerseys 2019 , Bunting has good ball skills as a corner but Bunting must improve his ball tracking process at the next level. His overall aggressive style has the potential to carry a tag of being “grabby” in the NFL, something fans tend to hate on sight. Bunting must learn to control the hand fighting throughout the duration of the play. A little polish is also needed on his footwork as it appears to look choppy at times. It will also be interesting to see how much improvement can occur in regards to his overall play strength. Conclusion: With a pair of starting cornerbacks in Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver plus the likelihood of Damontae Kazee being inserted as a nickel corner in the slot, the Falcons are not necessarily in need of an early round corner that can be a rookie starter. But what they are in need of is quality depth at the position. Enter Bunting, a very solid corner with size and length that with proper coaching, can be a starting caliber corner down the line for the Falcons. Bunting saw time at both boundary corner spots at Central Michigan and even on occasion in the slot. In due time, Bunting can be worthy of being inserted on the inside because of his fluid change of direction skills and instincts but his talents provides flexibility for the Falcons secondary. The 6’1” corner had a knack for creating a timely turnover or two with the Chippewas and that will fit right in with the Falcons. There really is nothing special about Bunting but that does not mean he does not have a notable ceiling. It is not far-fetch for the Falcons to target Bunting late on Day 2 or early on Day 3 as his presence can upgrade a Falcons cornerback group the moment he steps onto the practice field in Flowery Branch.
