When the ILB opposite Cushing is removed , this is the guy I plug in ..... I wouldnt have minded Pollard being brought back in this role.


I have no idea where to rank him among safety's or even what round he may be picked in .... Most sites Ive seen show him as an UDFA but I see so much potential its hard to see him go undrafted.
Yeah, there are a few big guys that are intriguing. Too much potential to be an UDFA. It's not like he's a one trick pony.

I was watching Amerson before, but is now switching to the SS Earl Wolff sincee I hear the Dop talking him up.

Dopler, did you watch the game against UNC?
First game I picked out and Wolff looks very shaky.
At least 3 very bad moments in coverage and missing tackles twice.
I hope it's his only bad game.

I really like rambo in the 3rd. He's a true fs with range and is a playmaker. One way or another, the texans need 2 safeties. manning and reed are 1-2 yr guys right now. So it would be wise to get that guy on the roster now imo.

I agree but there are plenty of other safeties as well. Best class I can remember in fact, since covering the Texans. Jonathan Cyprien is my fav he went out the window when they signed Reed. Next is Matt Elam he too went bye bye. Then was thinking Phillip Thomas in 2nd but too many other pressing needs. Shamarko Thomas is a beast, like him better than Rambo but close. Robert Lester & Eric Reid are a couple big FS who fit right in with Manning & Reed. Then you start dropping to 4th-5th territory with Duke Williams, Shawn Williams & Eric Wolfe all better than what we have behind Reed/Manning. So I think the sweet spot is anywhere from compensatory 3rd to 5th rounds.

While I agree they need to find a couple safety's for the future , I have to wonder if they can afford the luxury of taking two in this draft with so many other holes to fill and so little money to spend. Especially if they are seriously planning on a deep playoff run.

Right now the guys on my preference list are Cyprien, Taylor, and the big kid from Tulsa.

Just rewatched a couple more NC St game, and saw some more poor coverage, bad angles, and mis-tackles.
