    I love this guy. Not sure that using a 2nd rounder on CB is the most prudent thing to do. Still see us using 1st and 2nd on ROLB and D-line but as far as the CB’s go that are available at this time, I love him. He reminds me of the vikings cb, Antoine Winfield, small but tough. good tackler. This guy has blazing speed. Would have liked to see more footage of his actual coverage skills. Can you imagine Cobb and Boykin lined up deep on kickoff returns? May also be a good way to protect Cobb as he figures to be more utilized on offense. This guy could give him a breather and our return teams would see no dropoff. GoPack!

    I wouldn’t draft him over a center in the 3rd. He is some athlete that can tackle and would be great in the 4th round.

    Only in the 5th or later. We’ve already got ‘that guy’ in Sam Shields….

    Someone else will take him first.

      I wish he would tackle like Boykin.

    Luxury Pick. TT needs to focus ROLB, DL & Center (guard) in that order.

    If TT works a few trades for a few higher picks than maybe but not likely. Only chance is trading a Jordy or Hawk with some of the lower picks to get another 1 or 2. Not likely IMO.

    What about Devon House? He seems to be the mid-round developmental prospect for our secondary (along with Shields). I suppose there is room for one more corner on the roster, even if you list Bush as the 5th CB/safety.

      Devon House will push for much more time this year. There also is a fine brandy (brandigan) aging on the practice squad that will take lee’s spot as gunner for ST.

      Unless TT gets additional 1,2 or 3 though – I’m afraid this kid will be gone.
