glad to help out a fellow fan in need.

3rd-4th round likely

He is built like a LB, has the speed of a RB, covers like a F/S, and hits like a Mac Truck.

no scouts really look at TT because their offense overshadows the D, and everyone believes the players are a product of the system...(so do I).

But if you listen to some of the UT or A&M games or anything relitivly close to Texas, when a F/S makes a tackle or hit, the anouncers will say, "that was nice, but have you seen Dwayne Slay?!?!?"

people know about him, but he will still only be a 3rd round pick at best.

reason: there are three or four top safties, depending on Ko Simpson...and then there is Threat, who some like more. So just assume he is #5. I want him with one of our thirds...prefferably our second one...(right after taking dumervile who im saying now will slide due to mediocere pre-draft workouts.)

o...and your welcome.

I believe that only shows the hit on the QB.

He also knocked the living crud out of a WR and caused a fumble earlier.

he is one of the best "drive through" tacklers i have ever seen.

Im a BIG Texas tech fan, but I want to see Slay make the RIGHT reads! I know he can hit but what about speed, what about not being late on the deep route (Hello our safeties).

Be cool to have a guy who can hit at the FS position, Earl can hit but NO ONE can really read the defense or even get over on the cover.

The reason he is not projected higher because he cannot ballhawk or as Gold said make the right reads. He is not nearly as big as a LB at only 213-218, and his speed is suspect. He can lay the wood, but against grown men his hits will be toned down a bit. The guy is a good pick up and could play the SS and allow us to move guys like Earl and CC Brown to the FS. Threat is a true FS and fast enough to play corner kinda like Michael Huff of Texas. Just depends on what you want.

his speed is not suspect to me. i havent seen him burned deep too many times either. he also likes to be in the "box"

Earl would be a great F/S.

do you think? hmm...maybe C.C.

but i thought earl was running a lot better post recovery. i know he is more of a SS though...hmm...

Earl is playing SS right not and Brown is backing up (replacing?) Coleman at FS.

then im stumped. :homer:

but i still want slay, he makes plays and can tackle, i just wonder if he will be good enough in coverage support.

Conclusion: I, along with everyone else need to watch him again. Watch tapes, watch him in the bowl game. Take a look at his pass coverage before the reciever catches the ball.

all comments about that with game references to support your opinion are more than welcome, and actually appreciated.

We will see how fast he is. Its one thing to hit a guy, but at the safety position it is about reading the offense and being able to cover the deep man ala Isaac Bruce and not getting over late.
