    Got to like those 5 9 corners! Samford part scares me a little but at least he can run right?

    Four year starter that runs a 4.35 and evidentally produced against lesser competition. Intriguing pick. Also very impressive that he could lead his team in tackles three straight years from that position.

    I talked about this last year but you don't pay massive money for a CB just to see him get hurt returning the football. It may continue for a while longer but I bet Fisher would like to look at some options. The Penn State kid can also return punts.

    Glad we addressed the CB position. Dude has some speed to spare apparently. Led in tackles? I got to read that.

    Lead the team in tackles 3 years in a row. Sounds like a likes (or isn't afraid of) contact. Gunny won't like this, but could this guy be this year's Hill with more physicality?
