Film Room: Amari Cooper Vs. Jalen Collins


Recommended Posts

Lol that video is so biased, Collins practically shut him down when he was on his side outside of that one slant TD (where he definitely got beat soundly). He only shows a few plays (and focuses in on one) because the other plays he did so well. Collins allowed 4 passes to be caught by Cooper I believe, one was in zone playing 10 yards off on a slant and one was just a phenomenal play by Cooper where Collins very nearly knocked it away. And that was more than his average, Collins averaged 1.8 completions allowed per game all season and had around 40% completion percentage allowed even on ones where they thought they could beat him. He allowed just 10% of deep balls to be completed on him while having 4 PDs and 1 INT on aforementioned deep balls.

Collins had a good game against Cooper. Something like 4 catches allowed and a couple were on slants which Collins' doesn't guard against

Saw a Bama fan saying Collins physicality shook Cooper up, no other corner had been able to do that to him

After seeing Collins against a bonafide top flight receiver like Cooper I am happy about this pick..

Also check this out, Richard Sherman's draft profile:

Sherman is a size prospect with some good intangibles that will help him mold into a contributing backup corner for a press-heavy team. However, he does not possess the natural coverage instincts, fluidity or burst to be considered a future starter. Is comfortable and capable in press man, using his size to disrupt receivers' releases off the line, but doesn't show enough make up speed to consistently recover when beaten. Awareness in zone and off-man are only adequate. Has average ball skills but some upside as a playmaker. Tough against the run but still developing from a technical standpoint. Sherman is a Day 3 prospect.

STRENGTHS

Sherman possesses rare height for a corner with enough bulk and speed. Effective when lined up at the line in press man coverage. Uses length well and established sound initial positioning. Flashes the ability to turn and run. Flashes the ability to high-point the football. Willing to help out in run support.

WEAKNESSES

Can be baited out of position when in zone and a tick late to diagnose underneath routes. Tall, high-cut prospect who displays some hip-stiffness. Not explosive when transitioning or when changing direction. Lacks great recovery skills when beaten off the line. Can struggle tacking in the open field at times.

Sherman possessed a lot of traits that you can't coach but came into the league needing to be coached up. Collins needs less coaching than Sherman did and is a better athlete coming into the league. There's plenty to like about Collins, especially getting coached up by Morris and Quinn while practicing against Julio and Roddy.

thanks... interesting stuff

there comparable but the odds of collins turning into sherman are very slim

but he should be able to develop into a nice starting corner

sherman was a very similar player but he develop a great feel for the game and is as smart as athletic plus he had much better ball skills than collins as well

i think collins more projects to be a brandon browner type very physical would have been the perfect guy to cover jimmy graham or those type of tough matchups we still get to see olsen who isn't jimmy graham but still pretty good plus both of the bucs receivers and carolina's big guys now so he should have a role and fit quinns defense perfect.

the only time jones struggles is when the refs allow DBs to play very physical and hold him and thats the type of CB collins projects to be

Most of the video is one play.

Collins hung with Cooper most of the game. His flaws are most definitely coachable.

Fortunately most of his "coachable" moments will come vs Julio and Roddy in practice.

Well hey, practice vs. Julio and Roddy played a part in making Tru what he is today.
