  • Ellis Hobbs

    Hey, im just interested in what you guys can tell me about your second corner, Ellis Hobbs. Do you guys like him? Dislike him? Is he a good corner? Why, why not? Etc

    Thanks folks

    RIP ST

    He'd be better as a nickel, but he can usually hold his own. Not great, not horrible. Fast. Small. Total warrior. Played with a sports hernia and torn labrum in his shoulder in the Super Bowl...

      Yeah, I liked him, I thought he has more than held his own for the past 2 years or so. He has contained several top WR over the years. I like him, but definately not #1 worthy.

        I agree, not a number 1, but a good servicable #2 guy. He plays bigger than he is, and although he is gonna get trashed for the super bowl, he had a decent game IMO, and had a pretty good year last year. tough to be opposite asante samuel, your gonna get thrown at alot

          I think he will develop into a nice #2 corner. Right now hes a little too young. Hes a playmaker and fast. He has a lot of potential.

              He gave up like eight touchdowns and had some more nagging injuries that he played through. However, he did a decent job considering he's really not cut out to be a #1 and going against guys like Vincent Jackson, etc. is really not his strong suit, since wide receivers at times had 8-9" on him. He plays bigger than he is, and he's physical, and decent in coverage. Amazing kick returner too.

                Yeah, I think he's best suited as a #2 guy. Are you guys going to draft a corner you think?

                  Maybe at some point but New England has a history of drafting corners in round 2-4 more often (Samuel, Hobbs, Eugene Wilson, Wheatley, Wilhite, etc.) and that's probably more the range they'd look at one in. They have some nice young guys right now so I think they're more likely to pick up some scrap heap corners like they do every year. I doubt they'd go after Asomugha or someone because they'd have to spend a lot of money and if they weren't willing to pay Asante last year, they won't do it with an outside guy.

                    I really don't like Hobbs that much...as a 2 or 1 type guy. As a nickel he looked great and looked like he had some serious potential. That happens with a lot of guys though. I really think we need to solidify our secondary situation, preferably with our second round picks and through smart free agent pickups.

                        Hobbs is an average at best #2 CB and an above average KR. I think I just close my eyes any time a WR over 6'2 goes against him because its over before it starts

                          I still believe he is a solid number 2, but not a number 1 corner. he brings more to the table than just a cornerback, because of his return ability. the pats need a legit number 1 corner to play opposite hobbs.

                            I love Hobbs. He had to deal with a much greater work-load from poor safety play to lack of effectiveness on the other side of the field... I could see him getting to a much higher level of play next year with an improved secondary around him in 2009.

                              Ellis is a solid "system" type player. He does his job well and is certainly not a liability. But he's no Ty Law, either.
