Postby mutantseabass » Wed Feb 02, 2005 8:34 pm

Hard hitter, he is kind of like a linebacker in the secondary. He is super athletic and has a ton of potential. He is a force against the run and can definetly become a solid cover safety in the long run, although he isn't one now. He is easily the best safety in this draft and they don't call him "The Hitman" for nothing.

CC is right on with this guy. As soon as I saw your post MSB the two words I was about to say were 'hard hitter.' This guy is the next Roy Williams. He could probably even switch in as a linebacker if he was needed there. Easily the best safety in the draft, he's big and can tackle well. Hopefully you guys don't take him and we can get him at 16. :-D

He may have one, I'm not really sure, but I don't think it's that serious. He's not really that injury prone. However that strangely small head of his could be injured easily in the NFL.

Actually, kind of an LB in the secondary is true to life... the man plays both positions. Which is great... the man is said to possess Roy Williams style play, while also adding to the teams OLB depth. He's slotted for the Vikings (I think) in my mock, but they draft 7th (Raiders pick). He's not likely to fall out of the top ten.

The Lions would be very fortunate to get him in their secondary. I would keep my fingers crossed if I were them. Unless of course they could somehow get Derrick Johnson if he slid that far too, but I wouldn't expect that.

Actually I would love to see the Lions trade down a spot to let someone come up and take a guy, and have the Lions get another pick out of it they way they did with Cleveland last year in Winslow. The Lions still got Roy who was who they seemed to covet all along.
