    He shouldn't be a replacement for Gay as he received a RFA tender from the team.

    But Gay is still free to sign for any other team. Granted it's unlikely anybody would fork over a 2nd rounder for him.

    Okay, now that we don't need to draft a cb in round 1 do we take two linebackers?

    I think it is starting to shape up for a TE and OL in the first round.

    good ST and nickle defender...NOT A STARTING CALIBER PLAYER. Plays well against the run, but safety help is a must...Tore his ACL so i doubt he even plays next year...However if it was a partial tear then he has a much better chance.

    He's got size (6' 200lbs) played for Arkansas, 26 years old, was an undrafted free agent, and is another DOLPHIN LOL!) I think Nick is really giving BB a bunch of insight into his former players, now that he is at Bama.

    (Let me rephrase what I am reading from Scouts Inc.)
    Pos: Possesses size...athleticism...plays with strength...good at press coverage...plays well against big receivers, and is good at defending jump balls...opens hips well in transition...runs well against vertical routes...has some short area quickness...shows the ability to close in on plays infront of him.
    Neg: isn't experienced...run support is inconsistant...needs to improve play recognition...could improve zone awareness...doesn't play upto his timed speed...upright pedal, and limited bend... Could improve deep zone coverage...balance and tackling are liabilities against the run...doesn't play physical enough against blockers.

    I don't think signing this guy effects their secondary needs, that greatly :)

    He was not a starter at Arkansas. He was the first player off the

    bench at both cornerback and safety.

    Smilies do help. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of who on here uses satire and sarcasm, and who just fails to use their brain. ;)
