  • The player comarison thread

    I always have like it when I get the ESPN draft magazine and they have the part that they compare the prospect to the player they remind them of. Also this is the players ceiling so no comparing Jordy Nelson to Randy Moss. I will just put a few players in that I have seen a lot.

    James Laurinaitis = Brian Urlacher - I don't know it just seem like a perfect match to me.

    Malcolm Jenkins = Charles Woodson - Both are big strong corners that can blanket.

    Marcus Freeman = Cato June - Just picturing them they seem like the same player.

    Mario Manningham - Laveranues Coles - smaller fast receiver, my other thought was Santana Moss but Moss is more athletic I think.

    I don't want to be overly critical, because a lot of comparisons that people make miss the mark, but I don't think that Laurinaitis and Jenkins are anywhere close to Urlacher or Woodson in terms of raw athleticism. Remember, Urlacher played every position except cornerback on that New Mexico defense and Woodson played offense and special teams along with being a great cover man.

        Matt Ryan = Matt Hasselbeck
        Joe Flacco = Derek Anderson

        Darren McFadden = LaDainian Tomlinson
        Jonathan Stewart = Ricky Williams?
        Rashard Mendenhall = Marshawn Lynch

        Some that come to mind for me.

          horrible... Flacco can out throw Ricers left handed.

            Urlacher played in a 3-3-5 defense @ New Mexico which is alot like playing a middle linebacker in a cover 2 scheme . He is run support and zone coverages. Urlacher wouldn't be able to realistically be able to play safety in the NFL.

              nothing I've seen has shown that Flacco has an arm bigger that much bigger than Rivers.

                  Here are some of my comparisons with some explanations

                  Matt Ryan-Matt Hasselbeck
                  Well first off they both went to Boston College. That has to account for something right? On a more serious note, both are pro style passers with good, but not great arms, that excel in checking down multiple recievers. Many people may knock Ryan's decision making due to his high interception totals but I feel most of that is on the lack of a solid WR group.

                  Brian Brohm-Chad Pennington
                  A QB with more accuracy than arm strength who sees the whole field. Can manage the entire game and rarely turn the ball over.

                  Andre Woodson-Byron Leftwich
                  Granted their body types are different, the main reason why I compare these two is their similar mechanics and horribly slow wind up releases.

                  Joe Flacco-Ben Roethlisberger
                  A big QB with enough mobility to move around in the pocket to avoid the rush and enough strength to break contact. Above average arm strength with slightly above average accuracy.

                  James Hardy-Plexico Burress
                  A very tall WR with enough speed to be effective on the go routes. Not the greatest playmaker over the middle but is excellent in the red zone.

                  Chris Long-Aaron Kampman
                  A player who is deceptively effective in the pass rush thanks to excellent technique and hard work. Has enough size to also hold his own against the run.


                  I'll do more later

                      I have always liked comparing earl bennett to laveraneus coles, just slower and a bit taller. Coles is a heck of a lot faster than bennett, but they both run crisp routes, have great hands and are tough recievers. I know when someone says disregarding speed etc. they are very simalar and people say well then they are nothing alike, but i think their playing styles are very similar even though there speed is quite different. I will admit that bennett is more polished coming out of college than coles was, but will need to be a better route runner in order to get seperation, which will make up for his lack of speed (compared to coles).

                        I honestly think it's a horrible comparison. If I had to compare Earl Bennett to anyone it'd be Cris Carter. He's an excellent possession WR who runs great routes and uses the whole field. I wouldn't count on him to be a #1 WR but he could be the best #2 WR in the game.

                              But isn't a great posession reciever who runs great routes and uses the whole field exactly what coles is?
