I never said Kai would be a can't miss NFL player or that he will be an NFL WR, no doubt.  I said he has NFL caliber talent at that position and that he's wasting it playing QB.  Nor did I ever say Ellison Jordan is the best DL ever from the state of MD.  That would be Darnell Dockett IMO (just based on play in HS).  But you've never been one to let facts get in your way.

 

And I said you need to calm your puppies and FIRST see if Kai had high level college caliber talent at that or any other position.  It's nonsense to say what NFL potential a kid has who has yet to complete high school and play his first down of big time college football.  And if the truth is to be told, Kai is as soft as they come when he is in a crowd and not running out in space.  And I'm talking about high school football where he is playing against kids who this is it as far as organized football is concerned.  And it was your ilk GA who said EJ is the very best d-lineman ever out of this state as you are always up his butt agreeing with everything he says.  When GA was talking out of the side of his neck about Jordan, you never once raised Dockett and just agreed with GA even naming more Gilman "specials" and other "real deals."  That's your MO g_Spot and why I call you g-Spot; GA's faithful yes / confirmation make him feel good guy.  :lol:

Please don't tell me that he is saying that somebody said that Kai is a surefire NFL WR? Hahahaha. I guess he's back to making up stories again. Like seeing DeMatha lose a game to a team they never even played!

 

Rest assured... I COULD NEVER MAKE UP MORE BULL CRAP than YOU GA....never never ever.

 

Again, I just don't think you are in here just for the hunt anymore.  Now get off that log...  I'm tired of seeing your naked tail pearched toward the sky.

I am so happy for Cyrus.  And keep your eye on Jamar Peete - Walbrook class of 2009.  He redshirted then played four years of lacrosse at Limestone.  Senior season- national champion, Division 2 First Team All-American.  He is using is final semester of athletic eligibility to play football (its Limewstone's inaugural year at D2).  He's playing corner at a high level and could see him in NFL next year.

...about non-G crap, yes you just may disagree with your alter ego but I don't know about regularly.  But all things G, you two are like a pair of gonads.  In fact, you two are nothing more than a pair of G-gonads.  So I call your bs and GTFOH and raise you two gonads G-Spot.

Kevin Johnson will be drafted higher than Cyrus Jones (albeit in different drafts). At 6'1" Johnson has the length that NFL teams covet to go along with speed and athleticism. He flies under the radar GA had the science dept. @ Gilman tweak to exclude players who didn't go to Gilman but not the radars they use in the NFL that find players like Pierre Garcon who also didn't go to Gilman.

Kevin Johnson is a very good player but he's not going to get drafted higher than Cyrus! You know anything of what you're talking about? Cyrus is a better athlete, faster and will destroy the combine. Cyrus will be a first or second round pick when he gets drafted,'Johnson will not!

you really think cyrus has shown enough to indicate he will be a first or second rd pick?....he has looked better than last yr no doubt...and has a yr left..but i would let this play out a bit first..i think he will get an nfl shot though...destroying the combine at his position would mean what?.....4.3 40....40 inch vert.....20 reps...killing in position  drills...he could...i guess we will see when the time comes..

I think Oily Can is on to something with Kevin Johnson because I see his NFL prospect rated at #2 among 200-plus DBs for 2015 and Cyrus is about 40 among 200-plus 2016 DBs.  But what stands out is that Kevin is NOT flying under the NFL radar.  He appears to be well known.

I definitely think Cyrus has been killing it this year. I've seen every Alabama game and what came into the season as a weakness(their defense), has actually been the strong point of the team and he's easily been their best DB. He locked down Treadwill from Ole Miss and he's considered one of the top NFL WR prospects in the whole country. He's fast, physical and a sure tackler. He's been better this year than the more highly regarded Landon Collins has been at safety for Bama. And Collins will without a doubt go in the first two rounds, he's an athletic freak. Cyrus has one more year as well.

Yes, he will be in the low 4.4, high 4.3 range and probably around 38-40 inch vertical. Very strong, should do very well on the bench.

I thought the bench was the best thing for Cyrus when he was placed there the year before in favor of the freshman.  So yes, he did well on the bench.  Cyrus had to learn to play and play the way Saban wanted him to play and not how Biff allowed him to play just relying on pure athleticism.

 

But think Day Three or even an invite if lucky.  That is, unless the 'Bama name is enough to get anyone an invite.

Cyrus has been more physical this season and the time he spent watching from the pine helped him figure out what he had to do to stay on the field for Saban. He hardly ever leaves the field now, except for O. He could have gone anywhere and he went to Bama to play against the best. A 3 year starting corner from Bama goes Day 3 at the latest.

No doubt. I believe he also recorded a catch in a game this year. That Bama defense is looking really really good. Even the game hget did lose against Ole Miss, it wasn't because if the defense. Offense let them down that game.

Great best defensive player for 'Bama.  Doing the do in catching offensive passes.  Before this year is up, you may have Cyrus an assistant coach....

When you go to Gilman they implant a microchip in your brain. Its covered in the tuition. GA's class was the first to get the chip. Back then it was the size of a golf ball. I think his Duracell is leaking acid. Anyway, his radar only picks up pings from the G-chip. That's why KJ is not on his radar. It doesn't matter how much you work out you cant make 5'9" = 6'1". No secret why Richard Sherman is paid what he is paid.

Cyrus is 5'10. Johnson has been on my radar since River Hill. I've followed him very closely at Wake because of following Camp's career and the two Gilman guys, Joey Ehrmann and Hunter Goodwin. Like I said, very good player but not close to the athlete that Cyrus is. Also not as physical. He does have great size and great coverage skills.

Richard Sherman is 6'3 and very physical. Kevin Johnson is also much lighter, he needs to gain weight for the NFL. But I don't doubt we will see him on Sundays.

Its easier to make 6'1" = 190lbs than it is to make 5'9" = 6'1". Long arms and long legs is referred to as length in the NBA. I hear that term used to describe CB's in the NFL now. The longer the better when it comes to defending passes in the NFL.

Jones isn't 5'9, he's 5'10 and there's many great 5'10 NFL corners.
