Who got paid the most to choose Seattle after the draft? Seaside Joe 1526
Nittany lion long snapper?
Jonah tavai is just great..yes im from central europe and it makes me sick in the mornings here but i like pac football... and games against fresno st and boose st were so uhmmmm for jonah.... even in different stats way
Okay, now I want to see the combine results of you, Mookie and John Phteven Gilbert
I think my least favorite and probably the laziest take is when people compare a prospect's measurables to that of a star player at the same position as if that is what makes them elite. While measurables and physics determine the limits of what a player can do (inertia will make sure someone with DK's measurables could never make the quick and precise cuts of Doug Baldwin) it's not what makes them good players, it's their ability to maximize their talent within those measurements/limitations.
That brings me to a question: what exactly IS talent? We know it's being good at a particular skill but why? Is it intelligence meets physical ability? Is it learned or natural (or both?) Is it simply hard work and dedication? If you had two players with identical measurements at the same position with one being a 1st round pick and another a UDFA why is one so much better than the other? Maybe the person themselves doesn't even know why they excel at something and they've always just been good at what they do.
I really hope M.J. stands for Michael Jackson. Can't have too many of those!
I would imagine a signing bonus (or guaranteed money) for an UDFA is a tactic used to get a sought after player to sign with the team, when the team's depth at their position made it seem like an otherwise undesirable landing spot. Similar to the way 7th round picks are sometimes used.
Now we all need a video of your 40 time.
Ok Ken I have done my studying and a big mistake I made on my first post, is practice squad players make $8000 a week. If they stay for the full 18 weeks that's $144,000. The one that is going to blow your mind is UDFAs can be garunteed decent amounts of money. The highest I saw was $225,000 if he makes the team or not, the next was $175,000. So those are garuntees. Another interesting note if you are a drafted player and don't make it to the 53 man roster you are garunteed a decent amount of money in my books. If Brock Purdy had not made thr 53 man roster he being Mr Irrelevant, was garunteed $77,000. and it goes up from there. 80% of drafted players make it to the 53 man roster for some length of time. My brain hurts and it deserves a couple or more Canadian lagers
I wonder what the average number of PCJS’s UDFAs is to make the 53, 1.5 or so? Also, how many make it to the PS at one time or another?
Looking forward, I wonder how many players that PSJS poaches after cutdowns. I feel for the UFDA who makes the team and is then cut to make room for a poached player! Got to feel bad to show up every day in spring and summer, only to be replaced by a stranger.
Chris Matthews also gave us this unforgettable play: https://youtu.be/47IhtT2EtjI
I take it signing bonus is what it sounds like, if you make the team. I will look for the article and tell you what it says. Thanks skipper
Anderson has a lot of positives on his draft profile. His poor 40 time was due to a hamstring issue and the biggest knock on him is his lack of snaps (608 game snaps PFF). With 2024 in their sights, and Taylor and Nwosu FA, Seattle is planning ahead. He was slated as high as a 5th round pick. Could be a great ST add.
I read one player was given $175 this year and he is a non QB, which is quite incredible. Even making it to the practice squad isint easy. If you are good enough and lucky enough to make the practice squad it's a great job. How many kids aged 21 to 25 are garunteed $1600 a week for as long as you stay. A quick calculation works out to $6400 a month depending if its a 4 week month. For the season, another quick calculation this time using fingers and toes is an eyelash over $30,000, $30,400 apx with one week in January. The player gets to practice the sport he loves, and you maybe one injury away from the show. If you are lucky enough to get called up your garunteed 3 game cheques even if you go for one week. One week maybe enough to get a spot on the roster or get picked up by another team. The $1600 a week is a minimum if your the third string QB you will make a hell of a lot more than that. After the season if you are motivated, you can get another job, and for the year your income will be better than most 21 to 25 year olds. You were talking about a possible typo, Bobo looks to be playing a lot faster than 4.9 and change. I only ever ran 1 timed 40. I was 19 and was asked to the BC Lions Jr development camp. They asked me there for my kicking. I was a very good kicker in rugby from the hand or ground. I ran a 4.48 and slipped on my first step. I had no astro turf shoes just the removable hard cleets you use in rugby on grass. I wore an old pair of Stan Smith tennis shoes. I don't wish I had that exact pair, but a new pair as they were comfy and looked cool. All that is to say Bobo must have run faster ? But maybe not
Nice--first profile I have seen on MJ Anderson. It is always interesting to see which of the UDFA's make it to the final roster and there are definitely holes to fill. I hate to say it but there are almost always unexpected injuries that crop up among the draft class, too.
