Is the national media neglecting N'Kosi Perry and FAU?

Post

The main reason I donít think it made headlines is because Perry hasnít been successful.†

He was in Richtís offense, but it didnít work. In Richtís offense, the QB needs to be able to see the field and go throw his reads. Thatís why a guy Perry wasnít †successful. They arenít guys who will get past their first or second reads. Thatís why itís imperative that he can run. Whatís the worst thing that can happen, risk getting hurt by running more than heís used to. Itís not like heís a draft pick at this point.†

But the offensive line needs to block. The tight ends need to be a million times better. And someone at receiver needs to be a big play threat.

At 6’5” and 250 lbs transfer Zaire Mitchell will certainly be a huge addition.
He has already shown that he can catch and go and will be another option for whoever becomes the starting QB.
Throw in Johnny Ford and the rest of the returning RB along with a healthy John Mitchell and it will be a much different looking offense this fall.

I think people are putting a bit too much stock into John Mitchell…an excellent young man who is going to do amazing things in his life. But he had a very inconsistent 2019 season. Iíve mentioned it before but the last staff really urged him over the 2019 seasonís final weeks to use his hands instead of his chest when catching the ball.†

So you have that, and you have him coming off a knee injury. And heís a holdover player from the last staff. So we shall see.†

Again Iím not a genius, but it seemed like the receivers that looked explosive in 2020 were backups like Merrell, basically not the transfers.

Itís going to come down to the offensive line giving Perry time to throw and for him to roll out of the pocket and also take advantage of running lanes to gain yardage. He actually had some decent games running in 2018.†

Iím not sure how much we will miss Bryant and Raine. Thatís why it was such a big deal Raine transferring. That couldíve cost us a couple wins.

I thought we had some baseball player supposedly playing tight end in 2020. I donít know why no 3rd or 4th string tight ends didnít play last year. It makes no sense. I guess maybe Irvin was promised playing time. Ever since I started following the G5 level really well, it seems like you Have to promise P5 transfers playing time.

I was thinking the same thing late in the year. You went what, seven games without a TE catch? Why not give Wenstrom or Ryan Cameron an opportunity if theyíre healthy? Iím not saying Ryan Cameron wouldíve lit the field up but why not experiment with a change?

As for Merrell, he went from starting slot to…nowhere to be seen. And I donít remember seeing him do much of anything in the spring game, but I could be wrong. And he played well against Marshall! Was he hurt? Did he fall out of favor?

See, for as much as I complain, Iím like a moth to the FAU flame. And Iím sure Iíll keep complaining and rambling. 🙂
