Good find Brett, he really seems to be pro ready against the run. I am just curious to see how far along his coverage game is.

With all the positives said about him (and i believe them all). It makes me wonder why did he last all the way to late 2nd rd?

Anyone?

He can be overly aggressive and this shows up in a lot of ways. He picks up a lot of penalties because of that. He'll also go for the big hit instead of wrapping up sometimes. He'll be over-aggressive against the run and sometimes blow coverage assignments.

There were worries that he didn't have the range to be a good safety in coverage.

And then there are the worries about his height.

Late 2nd round was about where he was expected to go.

It happens...

There are other players teams like more for whatever reason. I wouldn't get too caught up in supposed negatives as every prospect has a list of negatives.

I'd just look at it like there were other players selected ahead of him that other teams valued higher.

It's not like he fell to the fifth round. 2nd round is a good place to be taken.

I agree his 40 was horrible. But he doesnt play like a 4.67 at all. I would've easily said a low 4.5, easily as fast as Elam.

His over aggressiveniss might play well in the sub package, as somewhat of a LB. against the run.

He's definitely aggressive, but I think the TFL's outweigh the negatives here in terms of how often he is right vs how often he is wrong.

His aggressiveness reminds me of linebacker Vontaze Burfict who had 16 personal fouls thru his junior year. Considered a 2011 first rounder, he went undrafted 2012 after leaving school early. Became starter in third week for Bengals getting 127 tackles team high.

While Burfict did fail marijuana test at combine, his on field skills were crazy good but was a penalty flag waiting to happen. I am not concerned about GRR! at all.

Me either, at this point. If he develops a rep like Bernard Pollard did and draws a flag if he even breathes on a receiver then that would be a problem.

Hope that doesn't happen.

Everytime I see Swearinger I think about this song:

Quote:
Bad girls ain't no good, and the good girls ain't no fun
And the hood girls want a smart *****, college girls all want a thug
So it seems we fiend what we don't need
Got a thing for a queen who know when to leave
I ain't bout to judge you, don't judge me
You ain't gotta really sing about your rap sheet
Cause I heard you (bad nooo)
In the literal sense I mean that
He looks like Wale to me:

He misses a tackle every week. Rookie safeties do that. Gotta learn sometime how to play at this level. Might as well be now.

Dude looked like he was giving Jennings a celebratory shoulder bump. It was actually comical because of how bad it looked.

Sharpton did nothing but catch his block and was easily taken out of the play.

Sigh.. welcome to the new NFL where love taps are only allowed if you are a receiver, and then when the real men play you get your face ripped off then run for a TD.

The more interesting thing for me was that Jennings then outran everyone else.. including our corners.
