    Kid is a beast, i cannot believe he was still there at 7! Only the arrest stopped him going high but otherwise he was gone A LONG time ago.

    Fantastic pick and looking forward to seeing him play.

    Best value of the entire draft by far, imho.

    Can everyone pretend we got Dennard in the 2nd, and Wilson in the 7th, and stop complaining? Thanks! :)

    This is a huge steal, he has the talent to compete for a starting job in TC.

    Honestly this is our best pick in my opinion. He is Cortland Finnagen in the making.. This pick will be something BB is praised for over the 5 years!

    Typical scuffle between drunkards that inadvertently led to this genius punching a cop who was trying to intervene and stop the altercation. :)

    Not sure what kind of football IQ this kid has, but punching a cop on the week of the draft doesn't speak to highly of his regular IQ though. He looks like he's a beast though and a super steal at a 7th.

    Hope he works out........ and if he doesn't........ oh well, it's just a 7th. This pick is full of win.

    Unless we're going to let him get really really drunk before games it probably has no impact on his on-field decision making.

    He seems to be a man with bellicose tendencies, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as this team needs some fiery characters.

    If you are willing to fight a cop you are willing to fight in camp. The kids are calling it Swagger I think.

    Emphasis with these DB picks on big hitters ...
    Bill is looking at having a very, very, very physical dime package this year and i love it.

    After the last few years of seeing our DB's look like pinballs it will be a fine sight to see.

    Anyone who is even 10% soft will be gone from our secondary.

    Phil Steele who is a well known College Football analyst and publisher put Dennard on his First Team defense in 2011 preseason.

    That pretty much speaks highly on this kid....Maybe will be another regular 7th round player on defense like Deaderick

    interesting on that big ten pre season all big 10 list there's no tavon wilson to be found, even 4 deep.

    anyway, dennard is interesting but he might have to miss some preseason stuff if he's in jail.

    Yup! This is likely what I thought whend Dennard was drafted.

    He could have been picked in Travon's place in the second and people would have been fairly happy.

    But he is a slot corner, not a potential Safety. Arrington lead the league in INTs at that position. Whereas Travon was willing to try to play out of position at CB, simply because the Team and Coach needed him to do so.

    seriously though. this kid appears to be high round talent from all the mocks.

    if anyone can get him to fly straight BB can; but between the ejection and punching a cop the weekend before the draft this kid may be walking in the footsteps of BM (pro-bowl traded dui). Let's hope not and that we get someone who wants nothing but to rebound from all this.

    He's listed under the cornerbacks not the safeties

    I heard the guy punched a cop during an altercation leading to his arrest.....shame for him but great for us getting one of the heists of the draft.

    Believe he was the 4th to 6th ranked corner in the draft depending on your scouting source flavor.....

    Him and Ebner make me very intrigued now for the secondary.

    to hell with getting him to fly straight...just get him to put a picture of Sancrud in his mind and then tell him "KILL!!!"...do the same with Hightower..."smash that pretty boy punk weakling!!!!"...by the 3rd quarter of our first meeting we should be seeing Tebow... the Rats did ZERO to protect their little Murk, which means that sieve they call an O line will once again be manned by the Hunters and Ducksass's of their pathetic roster...what glorious irony...a Wrecks type player wreaking havoc on HIS bigmouth offense...
