Now that the 2016 NFL season is over, all eyes turn to the 2017 offseason. The big event is the NFL draft, scheduled for April 27-29 in Philadelphia.
He opens the game with a pretty solid header, but things fall apart from there. Conan has the eye of the tiger, but the skills sadly aren’t there.
That’s okay, because he has a plan. At halftime he asks his team if it’s okay to bring another player onto the team to help, a concept they relish. Little do they know it’s L.A. Galaxy and Mexico national team star Giovani dos Santos. When the team finds out the reaction is priceless.
Things start to turn around. The game plan is pretty much “feed Giovani,” but it works and Conan gets an assist! This is just great all around.
The Miami commit is every bit of 6’1 and 190 pounds. Jobe may have the athleticism to stick at cornerback, as he displayed quick feet for his size to cut off and mirror receivers. And he is much more physically advanced than his peers. On that note, several Miami media members I spoke with expect Jobe to attend Chesterfield Academy, a prep school in Connecticut, as players in Florida cannot play high school if they turn 19 before September. Jobe will miss that cutoff by a half-year. That’s not a bad thing — former South Florida stars like Calvin Ridley and Kelvin Benjamin also aged out as seniors. Jobe declined all interviews Sunday and earned an invite to The Opening Finals.
I’m interested to see how IMG QB Artur Sitkowski develops after his transfer from New Jersey to the Academy. He has great size and physical tools, but his on-field play in his junior season did not match up with those skills. Miami is taking a chance by offering and accepting his commitment this early, but it could pay off for the Hurricanes if he takes a big developmental leap. Other schools are waiting a bit.
Will Miami really end up with the No. 1 class in the country? Probably not.
