Scouts and coaches showed up in Tallahassee on Tuesday to see Florida State safety Derwin James work out. He unexpectedly decided not to.
James did nothing other than the three-cone drill and the shuttle runs. James, the top safety in the draft, said he acted on the advice of his agent, David Mulugheta.
It’s ultimately a time element. How long must the er have the ball in his hands and two feet (or another body part) on the ground before the catch becomes a catch? If there’s no time element, it’s a simple proposition for officiating and, more importantly, for re review: Ball in hands plus feet on ground equals catch, even if the defensive er instantly knocks the ball loose, making it a fumble.
The challenge of crafting the time element becomes the root of the problem for the league. One possibility would be to hinge the time element to the concept of whether the er is defenseless. If he’s still defenseless and he’s hit and the ball comes out, it’s not a catch. If he’s not defenseless and he’s hit and the ball comes out, it’s a fumble.
I was like, ‘What?’ Alexander said during a Tuesday visit to the PFT PM podcasts. ‘What in the world? Are these people not watching film? Are they not watching the tape? Are they not seeing that he’s gotten better each year he’s been in college?’ I don’t think people watch enough film to make a statement like that. I think he’s a really good quarterback. He’s got potential to be great. That’s my take on that.
