#17 Jackson Hamilton
Hometown: Woodstock, GA
Thoughts: Though I’m guaranteed there are rather a couple of ‘Hamilton’ jokes I could make correct now I have by no means found the musical so forgive my deficiency of puns in the intro. I’m additional of a ‘Annie’ sort of man myself (I consider Jay-Z was in that just one).
Hamilton comes to the Playing cards by using Ga and the personnel fought off some big names together the way to get the ‘athlete’ who has some situation flexibility on the defensive aspect of the ball. Though several ended up on the lookout at him to use his speed and length (I noticed a submit awhile again wher Keith Wynne said he had lengthy arms and now I can only envision Inspector Gadget actively playing ‘Mike’ linebacker) to participate in outdoors Coach Brown has been supplying him some reps inside of as effectively, and gave Hamilton and Alderman (Working day 24) some props as the young guys are taking part in definitely very well in the drop.
Hamilton has pace for guaranteed and even though he is a little bit undersized I like his aggressiveness. Ham Bone (do not simply call him that) performed a tiny operating again in high college and I appreciate that place combo of RB-LB. I imagine as a linebacker you can understand a large amount taking part in the jogging back again posture about determining gaps, reading through the offensive line, etc. We’re major significant on the within this 12 months but appear for Hamilton to get some chances in the potential.
“It’s ya boy….I’m prepared to do large issues up in here” is the exact same factor I explain to my spouse each night time before she rolls over and goes to bed.
#17 Nathan McElroy
Hometown: Louisville, KY (Product of Trinity High College)
Thoughts: If you dwell in the Louisville area and pay out any notice to superior university football, you are probable informed of Nathan McElroy. McElroy went from a high college sophomore who could not see a live rep at QB to the starter of a local powerhouse his Junior and Senior seasons that just so took place to equally finish in state championships. Not too shabby.
Nathan, like several other most popular wander-ons, is in this place mainly because he has a fantastic push and passion to engage in the recreation. It doesn’t hurt that McElroy is also a very long time Cards fan who is now residing out his aspiration participating in for UofL. Nathan, who experienced formerly committed to participate in soccer for Butler till he observed out Brad Stevens wasn’t coaching, can fling it for confident. In the clip under you can see some 35-40 yard dimes fall in the bucket and some pleasant across the body throws he puts on the numbers. He’s also get some mini-wheels on all those cleats as he remaining a couple of fellas in his wake on some rollouts. Though the climb to any considerable reps at QB is a steep a person there is 1 factor we know for certain and which is that McElroy is not frightened of a small hard do the job. Glad to have him on the squad.
As a Chicago Bears enthusiast I have a bit of PTSD from listening to the ball clang the post….but terrific throw from Nathan.
