    I do also. But strictly as part of the sub-packages.

    Some prospects have inadequate timed speed but are football fast. IMO, he's not even football fast enough to succeed as a starter -- but is a good enough football player to handle the short area responsibilities vs the run and pass.

    Hobbs is very fast and when alone on an island can get beat. Then if you think about Chevis' lack of speed...you obviously don't want him one on one deep or in the RZ.

    Having followed LSU closely throughout the years, I've seen a lot of him -- and like him because of his skills and intangibles.

    Even if the Pats drafted him, I still believe we'll select a CB early on who will be groomed as a starter. BB's perfect scenario is most likely a veteran CB competing with a highly ranked rookie. I doubt very much BB would draft someone high and expect him to start from the get go.

    No to any CB at #7 -- but yes to a trade-down.

    I think Chevis would make a fine cover safety.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how Chevis compares with, say, Travis Daniels?

    I like this kid, and he's been one of the DB's I expected them to take a look at. He should be available in the third round, and might even make it to their own third.

    I've got some stuff posted about him on here from just prior the National Champhionship game, and some stuff I posted about him fallowing the games outcome, but I don't feel like using the search function to bring it up, lol!

    Zenon could be a decent late round option, too.

    He's been a good/decent college QB, but that Highlight simply reminds me how John Parker Wilson hasn't fully lived up to expectations. He was an outstanding QB at Hoover.

    You think he was good at Hoover? I think the talent around him made him look a lot better than he actually was. Odd that neither Wilson nor Cox from nearby Hewitt Trussville never really took it to the next level.

    Rumor is that Saban wants to start the red shirt freshman over Wilson next season, if the red shirt freshman has a decent spring and fall.

    It's true that Hoover has had some outstanding talent for a HS football team, and that Wilson had a lot of talent around him. He was able to get the best out of that talent though, and had some very good games. I know the coaches at Hoover always thought highly of him, and most from the area believed he'd go on to have success at the next level.
