Xavier Rhodes



If he's available at 15, take him no hesitations.

6'2 212 CB with a 4.41 and a 40.5 inch vert.

Best CB in the draft by a decent margin. I'd give anything to have him.

He's 5'9''

NFL Comparison Brandon Browner


Who?

quote:

Rhodes thrives in physical press coverage, something very few college players can put on their resume. At time his tackling technique is questionable, but Rhodes will make his living locking up boundary receivers with a balanced and strong jam followed up by enough speed to stick in their hip pocket. Just don't ask him to play in zone, because Rhodes shows tight movements when forced to pass receivers to a separate area. His game is somewhat scheme dependent, but expect Rhodes to be selected in the first 50 picks.

re: Xavier Rhodes


I would like it, especially if we can add some LBs and D-line help in free agency

You better get to know this guy who plays for the Seahawks. He along with Richard Sherman make up the most physical CB tandem in the NFL. That entire Seahawk secondary with Earl Thomas & Cam Chancellor is a special group & is as physical as they come. So for Rhodes to be compared to Browner is huge compliment.

re: Xavier Rhodes


At 15? Eh. If that's our pick I'd rather trade back and get a second out of it too

You do know Rhodes will most likely be going before 15? If he falls to us I'd take him. Think he's better than Millner.

But if he isn't available and those OLB/DE that we like isn't available, I would love to trade back and pick up a 2nd. With the late 1st, pick up a DL and then with that 2nd I want Darius Slay. Been killing it all day and had a fantastic year at Miss St.

I would be extatic if we got him! I do like the idea of trading back and grabing Slay.I saw Miss. State play and he played better than Banks to me. Would be a grat pick to trade down for.

Definitely second best though, I'd like to see us draft him but he won't be there. TB will take him if I had to guess.

That has to be a very relatively recent phenomenon. Hadn't even seen him in most mocks in the first 25 picks. Must have shot up after the combine.

re: Xavier Rhodes


I'd rather get a OLB and then instead of drafting up to get Lacy, get this guy

He will be the 2nd CB taken now, no doubt. Banks had a bad showing at the combine while Rhodes did very well. He should go 10-15 spot.

5 years from now there will be no doubt Rhodes was the best CB in this draft. His upside is unbelievable. He's taller than Milliner, bigger than him, half a step slower, but has a freakish vert and broad jump.

Also, I'm not one of the people thinking Milliner was a poser. I think he'll be very good in the NFL, but I think Rhodes literally has unlimited potential. The comparison to either Seattle CB was a good one. He's got the potential, however, to be better than both of them IMO.

No doubt about it he is. So is Banks.


Millner is the most over-hyped, I'll give him that..

Banks is overrated! He did have an injury late in the season,but not a top 25 pick IMO. Slay has better up-size!
