He was a 4 year starter at THE Ohio State. He has been good to very good for years. He too can push for starting time. Blake is a fine player and I don't want to take anything away from him. However, he really has only done it one year. He is a great depth player, but I am not completely sold he is a potential starter down the line. Again, he is a fine player, but I prefer getting two guys who I believe are starting material.
2. Guy is a great pick, can't argue with it. Martin, Guy, and Taylor would all be great Safety prospects. I happen to like martin more, but I would be thrilled with Guy or Taylor as well.
