    One thing I'll say for Poteat is that I've never seen him miss a tackle when he was one on one while in a Pats uniform. Attribute it to him facing the 3rd or 4th best WR, or whatever you will, but Hank can tackle. He might blow coverages or assignments that I can't tell on TV, but I've seen him make SEVERAL big stops on short yardage when he was the only guy that could make a play. That's more than we've come to expect from some of our other DBs.

    Hank may just be small and slow. He definitely does not lack heart. He's made a few notable plays and will stick his head in there in run support.

    The problem with signing any of these guys is that it's a steep learning curve to become effective and, of the guys on that list, only Poteat and Mickens have experience in the system. I'm surprised that Schulters hasn't caught on somewhere. Is he recovering from an injury?
