ADOPT a player/MERIWEATHER
Brandon would like to clear something up once and for all. Lets start with the lighter problem. Gun possesion. Brandon's real father is a police officer..a well known one in Florida i believe. Guns are ALLOWED to be carried in Florida legally.Brandon had it and tried to use it as self defense. Nothing was ever brought up regarding the gun. ENOUGH SAID ON THAT. No problem here, plenty players carry guns. Second, the stomping incident was a once in a lifetime incident and it was a huge mistake. He said himself he went to pull FIU players off but made the wrong decision by joining in a STOMPING, not the helmet swinging. He's learned his mistake, hes never had other troubles where you might think "oh man this kids asking for trouble". Pacman, Chris Henry, Marcus Vick all had continous problems and still continued in NFL
-Brandon is 5 feet 10 and 5/8ths inches (Rounds to 5"11)
-He weighs in at 195-197
-Meriweather IS the BEST COVER SAFETY in the draft. Not only have I witnessed it but experts like Mayock said themselves.
-Meriweather is a leader in locker room and on the field.
-Brandon is a smart player who can and likely make calls in secondary(alligning the DBs, calling out what offense is running and such_
-Hes a hard worker..hes worked for playing time at Miami behind a lot of talent over the years and hes risen to be 1 of the best players at Miami previous few years
-Meriweather is a HARD HITTER. If you missed Miami games, he hits anyone regardless the size. Hes not afraid, never backs down because size / strength and delivers the big shots. Some witnessed in Senior bowl him having some big hits around middle on the TEs and WRs.
-Meriweather is versatile. Hes played Strong, Free and CB in college. He started at all and never complained when he got moved to CB end of year beacuse he was the best option since safety depth was better than CB.
Take Meriweather in round 1. He would be a top 15 pick had no issues arose but they seem to be behind him. He'll be the 2nd best safety in draft behind Landry and hes proven his skills for more than 1 year(unlike Nelson) and hes been more consistent in all around skill(unlike Griffin)
Meriweather is going to be the next great Miami safety in NFL. The torch will be passed down. Reed --> Taylor --> Meriweather -->Phillips(the best of all next year)
