Looking for KWALL

KWALL or any other Rutgers football fan.

One of the hottest names in college coaching this post season was Cory Robinson, the defensive back coach for Temple.

Cory had been at Maryland and Toledo before joining Temple.

This past season, Robinson developed 3 defensive backs at Temple with a legitimate shot at the NFL.

As it turns out, all three (Sean Chandler, Mike Jones, and Artrel Foster) were at the Giants rookie camp this weekend.

Chandler was signed by the Giants as a priority UDFA and today we heard that the Giants also gave a contract to Mike Jones after his tryout.

The college team that ended up signing Cory Robinson as a coach- Rutgers.

A great signing by Chris Ash. Remember the name Cory Robinson.

He's from Rutgers. He's amazing. Brian Leonard reincarnated.

I'm just messing with you KWALL.
Martin is an excellent back. He just was part of

a coral of rutgers backs who all got to play but none long enough to establish themself.
He will be an excellent 4th back. Should make the club
Hi 28. Martin had a great Freshman year along with Josh

Hicks. Both were very solid RB recruits. Problem was Kyle Flood was a moron who allowed the program to falter badly. Both were looked up to have carry the load and really help the program. But that year it all fell apart. Flood was easily as bad as McAdoo. Maybe worse in some ways


Flood rightfully got fired and Ash brought in Drew Merhinger who was waaaay to young And inexperienced . He tried to install a power spread with almost none of the right personnel. Martin battled injuries along with a bad OL and that bad fit. This last year he still had some injury issues along w no QB and had some flashes.

Imo he has more than enough talent to be an NFL back. Maybe not lighting fast but quick and good vision. I also think he can return kicks. Solid and smart FA pick up. I think he can make the roster or at worst a very good PS guy

I agree that he can make the squad.

To me his most impressive trait is a decisive lateral step just before moving upfield. He has great vision and quickness.

he left maryland after they named aazaar abdul-rahim the on field db coach

Agree. Didnít want to say it as itís a bit early and Iím just not sure but I think he can be Bradshaw like for us. Be a great story. Especially for Rutgers recruiting he makes it too
And forgot to add but Robinson was a huge add

For Ash. Guy seems to be a great Coach and recruiter. The two donít always go anand in hand in college ball. If he can pull a few more kids from that MD area it will be a huge plus
Hello Yankee

We need strong recruiters to keep that NJ talent. The other defensive coach hire is another good recruiter too. I donít know much about Robinson so thanks for the heads up.

Eric....about Martin. Heís got very good 1 and 2 step quickness and explosion. But once through the hole the opening closes fast around him. He can get tacklers off balance with it and run through the arm tackle. It could make him a serviceable inside runner in the NFL. But heís limited which is why his PT at Rutgers was cut after a good year 1 and 2. I wish him the best. Hope he can help NYG but Iíd call him a very long longshot.

I wanted the starting Rutgers RB Gus Edwards as a FA. Heís a much bigger guy with speed.

Thanks! He's not a big guy and his 40 time is all over the place.
Kwall whatever happened to Goodwin?

I thought rutgers totally didn't use him enough. I felt he could have been the primary back. So much talent wasted

A stint coaching at Calvert Hall won't hurt in that regard.

I agree with your description, but see a slightly better shot of making the team as the #4 RB or, more likely, the PS.

His 20 time would be more impressive than his 40. Good initial burst but I'd guess a 4.6 40.

I liked Goodwin too. Should have developed a pass catching role for him but hey flipped him to D. Then back to RB. He has the tools. I think Rutgers blew it with his development.
