Default Glenn Earl

Does anyone know if he will be a starter next year? I sure hope so, I think the kid has a lot of promise.

i hope so...i know he didn't get a pick this year but he was learning a lot real quick and he shows a lot of promise...of course if for some reason we draft thomas davis in the draft he won't get his chance

Yeah, but I don't think they will draft T. Davis. Earl should get his chance. Dom Capers normally has a pretty good idea of talent when he drafts it. I remember watching that Green Bay at Houston game, Earl and Robinson were leveling some people. Those two make a good team in the secondary.

I like Earl and I think he plays well against the run and pretty good in coverage, but if T.Davis was to fall to us in the draft, I dont think that we would pass him up unless DJ also fell. Maybe we would start TD at FS and Earl at SS. I know that we have Coleman but he is getting old.

Yeah I saw a lot of promise in Earl, like one of yall said, this guy wasn't supposed to see a lot of time with his knee injury that basically sat him his senior year and thats why we got him in the 4th round compared to a late first or early 2nd, what he would have been if healthy.

I like the way he comes up and stops the run, what I like in a strong saftey. He plays very phyiscal, and I think this is what this team needs. Getting better at pass coverage, not the best, what you would expect from a rookie. But getting his knee back to full strenght and an offseason of work outs and we could have ourselfs a very solid SS.
