Quick , someone go clone Jack Tatum in his prime.
I mentioned last year that Taylor mays might be a good fit for this defense of wade could get creative with him. Better coverage skills than most lb's would have, but bigger and stronger than most safeties.
I thought if we could coach him up he'd be ideal for that joker role that Quinn plays. Which would allow us to leave Quinn back deep.
The safety I like in this draft for that role is lester from bama. Not the physical freak that mays is, but has the size, good athleticism, physical and has good technique.
