    A kid that actually loves us. It's a perfect match.

    Right now he is projected to go in the 3rd round.

    With his size, Big 10 experience, and if he does run in the 4.3s it's really difficult to think a player like him at such an important position like CB would last until the 3rd round ?

    That's what I have been reading. I'm just speculating. Since we do not have a 2nd round pick at this time I would like for him to fall to the 3rd round.

    Maybe we trade down into the second to get him? :thinking:

    Regardless, it's just great to read someone has nothing but great things to say about our team.

    With RB and CB so deep, its possible to get 1st round type talent in the 2nd. Which pshes 2nd round talent into the 3rd and so on. Its a good chanc

    Honestly I'm not trying to be a cynic here, a wise-guy or whatever, but don't you really think these players will say and do about anything to get drafted
    as high as possible? I would if I were in their shoes. And I doubt that Godfrey is thinking about the third round, he's probably thinking about the #18 overall ?

    I think the kid would fit our team.

    But let's be honest, how many kids that say they can run 4.3 actually run 4.3?

    Especially if he is drafted by the Titans,Colts, or Jags. I hope not.

    I would be fine with us drafting him in the 3rd IF he is worth picking in the
    3rd. We do need DB help. I don't know much about the kid but the good thing is that if he is drafted by the Texans I won't have to change my loyalties to another NFL team. I mean since he went to the same high school I went to, I have to root for the team that drafts him right?

    Who wouldn't want to do that? Agents spend half the combine talking to scouts asking what they think about this player or that player. Question is though, how many teams would you be willing to tattoo on your hand?

    He has good size and weight for a corner, pretty big acutally, if he can really run in the 4.3's it sounds like a solid pick up for us.

    Anyone know how his coverage skills are, nose for the ball, etc.?

    For first round money, I'd probably tatoo both nutz.
