    EDIT -- I already know I misspelled Badger in the subject. It was a typo.

    I would say as high as second round. We all know this team needs more attitude on defense and Honey Badger would bring it. Some will say he is too small. However I have a list here of small NFL players past and present, most of whom would be worth a first round:

    It is a year old so the draft names are out-dated. The title says it all though: Size Matters Less Than Talent. If being small automatically disqualifies you from being good in the NFL then how do can you explain the players on this list. And I am not advocating a team full of smurfs. Just one.

    While he will not get any taller he can get in the weight room and put on some bulk. Besides, 5'9 is still within the normal range for an NFL DB. What you cannot teach or train is the heart and attitude Honey Badger has. And it is what we need:

    Did you also know you misspelled Cortland? LOL


    But seriously, I think he has got talent, and could be a good player despite his size, however I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't get drafted.

    He has got too many off the field issues. He was kicked off the LSU football team for drugs, and was arrested for drugs after he got out of rehab. I would consider him as a UDFA, but thats about it.

    Hard to say at this point. It could be anywhere from second to undrafted free agent. Teams will want to investigate his off the field issues. We will not have any real idea until after the combine. If he shows up out of shape like Maurice Clarett he will not go high. If he is arrested again he may not even be drafted.

    Still, players with issues have been drafted before. Clarett had worse off field issues and was out of shape and the Broncos still took him in the third. Andre Smith had off field issues, was out of shape at the combine then left the combine early.

    I like him as a CB but he'll fail another drug test at some point. Is he worth drafting to only have for 14 or so games? If he stays healthy maybe a 5th at the earliest could be spared for him...? IDK

    I'd really like to see us take him at some point. Greg Williams would love a turn over machine like him plus he could make Reynaud expendable who really only has ST value.

    If he's still available in the 6 or 7th round then yes I say the titans should give him a look..definitely not worth a 2nd - 5th round pick.
