    My assessment from the half a dozen or so times I watched him in college...

    Always goes for the big hit. Sometimes people bounce off him and sometimes he whiffs. He makes some amazing open field tackles, but it is the same thing. He'll dive for the guy instead of wrapping him up 2 yards later. He seems to be easily fooled playing zone. He'll bite on play fakes, try to jump routes, etc. He goes for the big hit instead of the interception.

    He could be great if he could dial some of that back a bit.

    Of course you can draft a guy with an injury in the 6th rd if you think he is a 4th rd caliber prospect. Even if he came to camp at 100% he was not going to play much.

    He is still only our 4th safety.

    Who is everyone? Every team passed on him at least 5 times.

    Babineaux is not good. We overrated him because we finally got Chris Hope out of there.

    I mostly see it happening because by the end of the year, we won't be fighting for playoff contention and we'll try out our young guys... and this guy can play.

    Oh, I know how bad Babineaux is. And I pretty much knew the answer before I asked. Just sad that we will be desperate enough to try out a late round rookie who started the season on the PUP list.

    Again, rather see what RoJo and Babs can do. I'm so tired of watching Griffin miss plays. You guys calling out RoJo for being in his 3rd year, but he's never seen the field. What's Griffin's excuse, he's a 2-time ProBowler and sucks worse than all of them!!

    Again, Rojo is terrible. We've already seen that.
