    You'd think we would have learned by now to not draft Washington players after bishop sankey and jake locker! This guy can't play corner in this league. Too slow and not agile enough for it. He might make a good safety though if he can put on some muscle.

    Ya know... there's been some mega stupid threads and posts on this site. You though have set the bar extremely high(low?) In that regard.

    I don’t think most people take him seriously.

    Lack of speed is a liability as a CB. The defense has to be coached in such a way to try and hide/protect that liability because the offense is going to try and attack the weakness….when we had Logan Ryan at NB the Chiefs pit Hill in the slot and Colts put Hilton in the slot and attacked him with crossing routes because they knew we were going to be in man coverage in the red zone. Easy TDs because Ryan couldn’t run with them.

    His physical traits are the main reason he fell to the 3rd rnd….if he had run sub 4.4 he goes much earlier.

    From a scheme standpoint I think we will see a bunch of combo coverage…with the outside CBs playing press man and then lbers, nb, safety in zone concepts

    I know Thanos is over the top a lot on his posts, but speed is an issue with Molden.

    So he’s got about the same 40 time as the guy who just led the NFL in interceptions?

    Just pointing out how insignificant 40 times can be. Several great corners had **** 40 times. Just like Farley, it’s on him. He has talent. He just has to figure out what to do with it.

    Good points. His speed is not exceptional and could be an issue. But plenty of corners have had success at similar speed. It depends on him and whether he can be smart player/good tactician.

    Molden is the same speed as Logan Ryan and Ryan played a significant amount on the outside as well as NB. Now I believe Molden is going to strictly be a slot guy barring a rash of injuries in a game. Then he becomes a cover 2 CB if that is the emergency alignment.

    For inside guys, as with Ss and LBs it is as much about instincts and angles as it is about raw speed (Molden is super smart and instinctive).

    Now, for those worried about keeping up with Hill who da ya think we should have drafted? There might not be a CB or NB in the world fast enough to stay with that guy. Blame the scheme, not the player.

    Agree with your points....when we had Ryan our scheme put him in some no win situations...hopefully we have learned our lesson.
