** Pre-Draft Visit ** CB Kaiir Elam - Florida


Recommended Posts

Looks like it's coming down to either Elam or Hall, if they stay at #25.   

 

Virtually all the national draft experts are pointing to Hall being the pick--which makes me think Beane is going with Elam.   The Bills love younger players with their first round selection and Kaiir fits that profile.

This is my vote right here; I predict Elam will turn out to be the best lock down corner of the draft with picks galore.  I want Elam & P- Matt Araiza, and other than that, trade away some of this year's draft capital for more next year to replace some of the1 year contracts. 

Go Bills!!!!!

He’s interesting, great athlete. Problem is he can’t tackle.

I think his lack of tackling is a little overblown.

 

I see him making tackles in his highlights....is he blowing guys up?   No.    But he is adequate in that part of his game. 

 

Honestly, Tre White isn't excellent a missile when it comes to tackling.

How many times can the WGR guys mispronounce Elam’s last name? 🤦‍♂️

Ki-ear ?

Mispronounce Elam?

That's...his first name...

 

Although to be fair I'm not sure if he meant to say first name.

yeah I do like the pick. The tackling issues (which I’ve now heard he’s been working on) can certainly be coached up  and fixed so long as he’s willing.

Last name. Sal flip flops between pronouncing it E-Lim/E-lum (like most people) to E-lom. And he drags Joe Dibiase down with him. I don’t know why it annoys me, but it does. Especially when everyone around him is saying it the commonly pronounced way.

I like Elam. If he was playing hurt last year maybe that could explain some of the weak tackling. His coverage skills are great, he’s a great athlete and has great size. 

Let's hope he turns out better than Levi Wallace, and close to Tre White.   He has that potential.

Gilmore “didn’t/doesn’t tackle” worked out pretty well.

 

did it?

Some scouting reports of Tre White said he wasn't the most willing tackler

 

He is more willing now but still not technically great at it. He gets injured sometime making an awkward tackle. He is motivated and does get the job done though.

“Can’t tackle” is becoming an overboard reaction.   
 

I would love teams to game plan us by running at our corners because their receivers are covered.  I think we could adjust to that and that would make the game plan easier.    
 

The kid has covered some very good SEC receivers in college.  Coverage is hard, and a far more critical skill than tackling on run plays.  Like most rookies, our coaches will have to work with him to bring his game to full potential.   .
