Waiver Wire Candidates Tonight, Det, Was, Buf, Cle


Recommended Posts

Kirk Cousins should be the starter in WAS. He is outplaying RG3. Neither is worth a draft pick.

Ryan Seymour I would love to get as #2 OC but he is CLE's #2 OC.

What I'm looking for in our team tomorrow and possible replacements tonight:

1- Can Renfree fit the ball into tight places? Get the ball out quickly?

If not what about EJ Manuel, or Colt McCoy? Cassel and Tyrod looking like 1 and 2. Kirk outplaying Griffin but they are 1 and 2. Do they keep three?

2- Can our back up WLB's and MLB's meet the ball at the reciever? Can they beat the reciever to the ball like Durant? First things first. First make the read and the tackle upon reception, then progress to knocking ball loose, then pass defensed, then INTs.

If not what about Hayes Pullard?

3- Can Mbu hold his position, shed blocks, engulf RB's?

May need more time on PS so a #2 NT for 2015 could come from cuts like Jermelle Cudjo.

4- Can Royster help as #4 RB with 1 through 3 nursing hammy's?

If not what about Zach Zenner(Yes he can. I saw him last week but he probably makes their team) or Desmond Martin(Also ran tough between the tackles) or Fred Jackson(Karlos Williams looked good last week, #2 good)

Yes he can, and this is exactly why he was originally projected to go much higher than he did. Had he not gotten injured in his final game at Duke, and thus not able to throw at the combine or his pro day, he was expected to be a round 3 - round 5 pick.

Jim Harbaugh apparently wanted him pretty bad when he was still with SF. He scouted him hard & had offered Renfree him a scholarship to Stanford before that. Additionally, Renfree's coach at Duke was David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe had a massive role in the development of both Peyton & Eli Manning as QBs, and he has praised Renfree a ton for his ability to make those throws, to not get rattled, and to be a smart football player. Mike Mayock & others had nothing but great things to say about him coming out of college as well, and felt he could be a steal of that draft.

Renfree's definitely got the cerebral part down. He had excellent coaching & is a smart dude ( 3.4 as an undergrad, 3.8 in grad school, and plans to eventually go to medical school).

Cutcliff compares Renfree's work ethic to Peyton Manning. Renfree worked hard & improved noticeably in each of his 3 seasons as a starter at Duke.

- His completion percentage went from 61.4% to 64.9% to 67.1%

- His TD to INT ratio went from 14:17 to 14:11 to 19:10

- He took fewer sacks each year as well

The one knock on Renfree has always been that he lacks the arm strength to be a force in the deep passing game. However, he had near surgical accuracy most of the time with short & intermediate routes. In a WCO, which is what we are now running, this level of accuracy is far more important than being able to chuck the ball 60 yards in the air.

He was hurt in the preseason (re-injured his arm/shoulder) his rookie year & placed on IR. So last year, rather than giving him a shot since he was now healed, the staff panicked, trading for a "vet" in Yates. Even though Renfree outplayed Yates, the staff gave Yates the nod so they could pretend the trade was validated.

Renfree has yet to be given a true shot. I believe fully that if this staff will give him a minute to get adjusted & a real opportunity, he will quickly prove his worth as Ryan's immediate backup & become a Schaub/Redman level of QB for us.

Manuel would be a great #2. I doubt even Rex is dumb enough to let that happen though. Colt? Eh... Otherwise not much that I could see being cut that would actually be worth signing. Jackson was a great RB for a long time but he's incredibly old now, I wouldn't pick him up.
