Long -term safety help
All you need to know is 2:08.
You mean just like Quinn?
Dude is a BIG hitter with very good cover / ball skills .....
Somewhat surprised that they went with a DB over a LBer or DL but .... this guy will take over the role that Quin played in passing situations. Considering how much time they spend in a three safety set , I find it hard to knock the pick.
I was looking for that hybrid DB/Lber much later in the draft ....
Much more physical player than Quin ....
What will be his role next season? I can't see him replacing Manning. I wanted a 2nd rounder that could immediately be plugged in and start.
We play a lot of 3 safety sets. He'll be able to cover the bigger TEs. He will get a lot of snaps this year
He'll be the 3rd safety - basically the hybrid safety / ILB that Quin played. They were in that three safety look an awful lot too .... The more I think about it , the more I like the choice.
Yep, and more importantly...will keep Shiloh Keo off the field!!!!
I love it. Great pick. I do worry about him taking some penalties, but it is what it is.
Yeah really .... Keo can continue to blow assignments on special teams .....
Yeah he has a little bit of Bernard Pollard in him .... but that defense needed a nasty personality.
This guy is a beast. I love this pick. Vinny, I know you love it. Fantastic.
Love this pick.
Yeah keo can stay on special teams which is best for him the team and most of all for us the fans !!!!
Dudes going to play a bunch. And he's going to flash like no body's business. Hopefully he's a Texan for a long long time.
Love swearinger. He's the one guy that I absolutely wanted to come away with in the draft.
Dude is a baller. A beast.
Reed and/or Manning will need help since they are kinda elderly so this will do us good. One or both of them will be nicked up next season at times. I like the pick.
Another one . .
Guys are going to think twice before going over the middle with Swearinger and Cushing out there. Jungle Boi is in H-Town and the dude can put a hurt on somebody, enforcer with "swagger". I think we will be looking for an ILB in the 3rd. Possibly Sio Moore or Sean Porter.
Yep, kid needs to quit going for the head but awesome tackler. I wished he had more speed. I had just posted earlier in the draft thread that we could get OLB and Ilb later and should go either safety or NT. Hopefully a NT will be their in third.

I like it alot. Is this the highest selected safety ever for us?
Hopefully he can come in and play that inside safety role that we lost with Quin on nickel and dime packages.
