    One of my sleeper picks in the draft. Packerchatters.com states that he is one of two late round safety prospects that TT is really "doing his homework." He is great in deep pass coverage, has great ball skills, and delivers a nasty hit. The only bad side is that if we take him then we can't have Mccluster on the same team. Why?:

    Just joking, here are his true highlights:

    Couldn't find a pre-draft analysis for him but I hear that he's the third best safety behind Berry and Thomas. His coverage skills are much better than Mays.

    he definitely looks a lot more polished than Mays. Right now Burnett and Jones are my two favorites for the packers' 2nd round pick.

    After reading the scouting report.....again....and having a comparison to Adrian Wilson.......I went and looked up Adrian Wilsons stats. I had no idea he was that big (6'3" 226lbs))

    Wilson was also criticized for his size mainly because it hampered his speed. Many scouts wondered if he could cover faster receivers or running backs in space. Well just look at him now.

    If we get Charles Brown in the first........and Chad Jones in the second........it would be a good start.

    I'd settle for that in a minute. Add Cox in the 3rd, or Sid'Quan Thompson, Pat Angerer in the 4th, Myron Rolle in 5th, Holliday in 6th, and a punter in 7th...

    Amazing draft IMHO.

    I think we get a extra pick in the 6th.......sooo just to make sure we get one of the 2 top guys (punters)......lets do that in the 6th. Pick the best available player in the 7th. Sooooo........forward this to Ted Thompson....and we can call it a day.

    More of a Strong than a Free... Simliar to LaRon Landry in playing style..not as fast though
