I Have a Sneaking Suspicion That Adoree Jackson Sucks

    I have been watching the player interviews throughout the off-season and noticed a common theme throughout.

    Any time a player is asked about Adoree Jackson their demeanour immediately changes. Even if the beginning of the interview starts out joking and lighthearted, when asked about Adoree they get serious and sometimes even start frowning slightly.

    They then say things like "he's working", or "he needs some more work". This is very uncommon with players talking about other players, especially 1st round picks. Usually the reviews are nothing but glowing. I've seen this from at least Logan Ryan, Avery Williamson, and Jurell Casey. (And slightly remember Orakpo maybe.)

    I really hope he works out, but I don't expect much from him early in the season on defense. I think he will light up the return game early though. That leaves us with Ryan, Sims, and McCain which isn't bad, but not great either.

    Can't figure out how to link specific videos from Titansonline.com, but it's the most recent Logan Ryan interview (towards the end) and the rest are from otas. Avery Williamson is from close to the end of otas.

    idk man, logan seems to have the same demeanor the entire interview.

    seems kinda silly to try and read the body language of players to eval a rookie.

    Guys only seen him in OTAs.

    Even if we grant that your intuition is correct, it's normal for rookie CBs to be overwhelmed early in their careers.

    I fully expect Adoree to have some growing pains...I really hope we add one more veteran CB before the regular season for that reason alone

    As long as he can up our return game we can give him time to grow as a cb.
