    probably not, and it has nothing to do with questions about his commitment. i just don't think he's that good of a football player.

    I would have taken a chance on him in the 5th prior to the combine. After seeing his sluggish workout; Id move him lower on the board. The year away from the game obviously contributed to his workout numbers, but hes still worth a late round pick for him to have the opportunity of 'snappin in' during training camp. He's smart and hardworking; two qualities that will serve him very well.

    I'd take him, but not any earlier than late 4th round. He's a bright kid who will get positive media attention and be a solid special team player, if nothing else. Best case, he becomes a solid starter and later becomes a successful doctor. All around good guy and I'd be proud to have him as a Titan.

    Can we draft the guy to replace Fisher? If so, I'm all in.

    "Rolle helped the Florida State Seminoles win on the field, and, off the field, he won a Rhodes Scholarship. He has postponed playing in the NFL for a year in order to study at the University of Oxford. In 2008, he earned Associated Press 3rd team All-American honors as well as Football Writers Association America 2nd team All-ACC and CoSIDA Academic All-America. In the 2008 season game versus the University of Miami Hurricanes, Seminoles defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews remarked that Rolle played the best and most complete game he has ever seen a safety play at Florida State University in his 25 years of coaching. Rolle had 4 tackles (2 touchdown saving tackles), 1 tackle for loss, 4 pass breakups, 1 sack, 2 quarterback hurries and 3 critical 3rd down stops."
    In a later round he might be worth a hard look.

    I have no idea about his physical or football abilities, but I'd take him with our 3rd for leadership value alone. I don't expect him to still be there then.

    Yes. Can't say anything bad about the kid. Rhodes Scholar, future doctor. Gotta root for this kid.

    Now will we even consider him before the 5th round, I doubt it.
