who could contribute to the Redskins"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsEDTShareTweetShareShareCan Amani Hooker Make The Redskins Feature The Hybrid S/LB More In Their Defense?Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsAmani Hooker Geron Christian Jersey , SSchool: Iowa | Conference: BIG 10College Experience: Junior | Age: 20Height / Weight: 5-10 / 210 lbs Projected Draft Status: 3rd or 4th RoundNFL Comparison: Adrian PhillipsCollege StatisticsPlayer OverviewAmani Hooker was a 3-star prospect from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota which is just outside Minneapolis. Iowa was the only Power 5 school that offered Hooker a scholarship which was surprising since he played QB, WR, DB, and RB in high school which showed that he was quite the athlete. Grades may have been a factor for bigger programs wanted to stay way from a player who could have been academically ineligible in the future. Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz didn’t believe that was going to be an issue after he talked to Hooker. It never was. Hooker was able to contribute his freshman year on the special teams unit before getting into the starting lineup during his sophomore year. He had his best season statistically last year but stats don’t tell the whole story. Hooker is one of those players who you truly have to watch to appreciate all he does on defense and how he can impact games without necessarily logging a stat. He also has been praised for his leadership and work ethic by his coaches and teammates alike. He is one of the most underrated safeties in the class and has starting caliber skills at the next level. StrengthsGood size and athleticism for the position. He was used in a variety of ways in Iowa’s defense lining up at both safety positions, lb, and nickel back. Play recognition stands out as he is rarely fooled by trickery remains disciplined in his movements and pursuit and can close in to disrupt the catch point quickly. In run defense from the safety or linebacker position he shows good instincts, vision Troy Apke Jersey , and takes good angles.Hybrid/flexible player who not only covered WRs deep down field but whose bread and butter was taking running backs and tight ends out of the passing game in the middle of the field and in the flat. Showed improved ball skills this year and uses his recognition skills in coverage to jump routes to haul in turnovers.WeaknessesLacks the length and range to consistently play deep over the middle of the field despite his test numbers.Lateral movement and speed doesn’t always shine and can compromise angles he’s taking in pursuit. Nickel responsibilities should be chosen wisely as he doesn’t have the short area skills and acceleration to remain sticky across the middle or in man coverage.Wish he had more finishing power behind his tacklers and practiced better technique instead of playing two hand touch sometimes.Let’s see his work:More Amani Hooker videosHow Would He Fit On The Redskins?Hooker is an interesting prospect because like most hybrid safety linebackers he’s going to have to go to the right defense to shine. I’m not sure the Redskins are the best fit for him. They haven’t had this role carved out since Su’a Cravens was here and they still make little use of JHC beyond that. It would take a recommitment to the hybrid position for Hooker to succeed to the best of his ability in D.C. and I think that only comes with a near complete defensive staff change. As noted in many of our offseason discussions the Redskins seem to be looking more for ‘do it all’ safeties with a leaning toward box guys that true prototypical FS or SS prospects. I think Hooker could have some success here, even as a 3rd safety or inside linebacker, but I can’t see how he consistently gets on the field with the team’s current defensive philosophy. If the front office is going to clean house after 2019 (I doubt it) the selection of Hooker would be a deliberate (hopefully) investment into the defense with the thought in mind that the new defensive staff would make the most use of him. Right now I can’t see him supplanting Landon Collins, playing FS, or getting on the field as a nickel back or ILB. I can certainly see him as a better fit on other teams such as the Rams, Chargers, or Jags. Alright, everyone needs to be honest now—who watched the inaugural action from the AAF (Alliance of American Football)? I was unable to watch very much of it Zach Brown Jersey , but I had to peek...because I’m a junkie. In trying to put together a post today about football, I feel like dedicating a Sixpack comments section to a brand new OUTDOOR (not an arena league, that is) would be a fun way to avoid talking a ton about Tim Rattay and Rob Ryan.The Arizona Hotshots are the gamblers’ favorite to win it all at this point. None other than Rick Neuheisel is the coach there, so naturally I wonder if he has any action on this thing. His quarterbacks are probably the strongest in the league with Trevor Knight and John Wolford. Knight was an exciting college player...at times...for Oklahoma and Texas A&M. He is pretty athletic and fast, and he has a chance to be my favorite quarterback in the league by season’s end, which I know is very important to him.The Atlanta Legends are worth noting here because they are the AAF franchise that has rights to players who most recently may have played for the Washington Redskins. THIS is noteworthy because the Atlanta team just got throttled in their opener by none other than Steve Spurrier and his Orlando Apollos. After the game, the man who should be prosecuted for what he did to Patrick Ramsey made sure to remind folks that he had just beaten the team with ties to the Redskins. This moment did not make me more likely to carve out time to watch more AAF action.The rules are....well, they are kind of awesome. The NFL will undoubtedly be taking note and polling the crap out of America to see if they should adopt some of them. I am definitely a proponent of no kickoffs Sam Huff Jersey , so this rule seems like a slam dunk, but this rule pales in comparison to a few others in my book. No TV timeouts...you read that right. That is huge, and certainly has a huge impact on the stadium experience as well as for anyone watching at home. Removing the extra point attempt is also a big deal, with teams being forced to go for 2-point conversions. Again...fun. One of the sneakier rule changes that I would be shocked to ever see in the NFL is the 35-second play clock. It is only five seconds less than the NFL, but I can barely keep my blood pressure down watching offensive and defensive coordinators play 40-second games of chess. I figure taking five seconds away would cause so many delay of game penalties in the first year that it would make people miserable. If you like Utah wide receivers—and who doesn’t—you’ll love the Salt Lake Stallions. I honestly don’t know more about this second-ranked team (in Vegas) than that. They lost to the Hotshots in the opening weekend, which means we could say that..get ready for it...we may have just seen the preview of the final!!! Wait...both teams are in the west. Nevermind...maybe? Is there a swimsuit competition?Am I the only Redskin fan that looked at our recent coaching hires and thought, “Are the Redskins competing in the AAF?” Tim Rattay and Rob Ryan are not exactly getting me in a very confident place. I would love to know who the group thinks Rob Ryan will punch first this season. I’ll get the betting started with Kevin O’Connell.
