The same as most unproven players after 2 preseason games, undecided.

He hasn't really flashed to me, yet. I'm not sure he makes it.

Imo, he's squarely on the bubble with the way Tuggle, Mohamed and Bullough have been playing. He might even be on the outside looking in.

Actually, if Bullough had a tad bit more speed he'd be a starter imo. Tuggle has been a very welcome surprise

before season out I expect Bullough's game smarts to make up for his speed as the game will slow a bit for him. Kid is good.

Watching the Falcons game I heard his name called once & I recognized it as the guy we traded for Yates. So I watched him a little. Nothing really to right home about, but he looked strong enough, I wouldn't say fast, didn't think he was physically slow, but I thought his reaction was really slow & thought his ability to read, diagnose, & anticipate were lacking.

Just my opinion based on what little bit I saw.

Then I got to thinking... there was a reason the Falcons drafted him in the third round. Was it a mistake, or were they just not able to reach him.

So I was thinking... can Vrabel be that coach that gets to him?

I do think he's on the wrong end of what looks like a good cadre of LBs (not a "great" corps, but I think we're going to enjoy watching our MLBs grow this year). I agree Tuggle is a bit of a surprise, I still like Tarpinian, & Bullough's going to make the 53.

Agreed on Bullough. And Tuggle at ILB -- Who saw that coming?

I haven't even noticed h's played, so I don't think much about him. I'm really pulling for Bullogh to make this team over Dent.

Dent was hurt a couple weeks ago and has only practiced a few days before the Falcons game.

Wonder if their could be a trade to the Cards for one of their OT's. The Cards have depth at OT and need ILB's in the worst way.

They cut him when he was due $725,000. I suspect it will be in that ball park.

while glad to have him as he came on some end of season, no way is he the "significant" guy I am hoping for. I think perhaps they could be looking at both UDFA center Wisnewski and OG Mathis.

Default Re: Akeem Dent

Dent only played in our final 8 games part time, earning a +2.2 overall rating from PFF that (surprisingly) would've placed him just inside the top third of ILBs(~20th) had he participated in the few more defensive snaps needed to get him above the 25% team snaps filter.
