    I was all for keeping Finny and moving him to FS. Finny had played safety in college.

    I also liked the Pats drafting Hightower. I had him as BPA when we picked Wright. Bellick and their FO knows that a good QB can make late rnd receivers into all-pros. Brady has allowed them to concentrate on building a stout young defense. The Pats rarely miss on their 1st rnd picks. While the Titans have had a real issue with drafting in the 1st.

    I wouldn't call McCourty a good 1st round pick.

    all within the past decade. They're a little over 50/50. and too early to tell for sure on the last 2 years drafts.

    Yep, I wanted Finnegan at safety as well. But, why would he make the switch and get paid much less. The top safety makes around ~$6M, Finnegan is making like $10M now. So, if we matched that deal we'd have the highest paid safety about ~$4M, and that's just silly.

    I wonder if we go get a corner this year (FAs: Brent Grimes, Sean Smith, Q Jammer, DRC, Cox, Talib or draft: Dee Milner), if we could then move McCourty to FS? We'd have to get rid of Griffin and still have a hole at SS.

    Jason is much better at corner than his brother. Devin was getting ate up every game, Jason for the most part has been solid.
