CND, we're not looking for that type of SS, we got rid of Pollard because of his lack of coverage skills. The NFL has become a passing league thus the reason we converted a CB to SS, because of his coverage skills.
Dutchrudder, he might look strong in pictures but so do the 320 lbs. OG's that will steamroll him. We've already got Sharpton who's the same size as Kendricks and this is a big boy league.
JMO, but Kendricks is just to small to play ILB in a 3-4 where he'll routinely take on FB's and OG's. I just don't see him withstanding a season long pounding at his size.
