    Davon Takin it to the House has looked much better so far this year, with a year under his belt seeing & studying this system.
    Found this elsewhere:

    There have been 10 first round CB's drafted in the last three years.
    If you rank them by HT/WT, 40, shuttle, and 3-cone and then throw House in the mix he fits right in.

    3 players are bigger.
    5 players had a faster 40.
    5 players had a faster shuttle.
    3 players had a faster 3 cone.

    Patrick Peterson is the only player who bested House in all four categories.
    House bested Claiborne, Kirkpatrick, Haden, Jackson, and Robinson in all four.

    I like him and you can bet he really is benefiting from the leadership of the older vets in the defensive backfield, as well as the competition from all the other guys jockeying for a roster spot. I hope he pans out and I can't wait for preseason to really get a good look at all these guys I am reading tweets about all day from TC.

    He certainly looks the part. We'll really see what he can do during the pre-season games, but it's good that we are only hearing good things about him now.

    The thing I recall, sadly, from watching House last year was that he tackled like Deion Sanders.
    But then I saw Sam Shields all year tackle the same way..... so we need to hope these guys have bulked up, and man up and tackle people this year.

    Haha, you're welcome.
    Actually I was about to post a thread about House because I saw nothing..... but I did the deep search, and low & behold, I found this.

    There were raves about Casey Hayward on the first day or 2 of camp. Now Davon House.
    They also pumped up Jarrett Bush.
    Then there's the super speedster Sam Shields.

    As long as Tramon gets/stays healthy enough to play like the 2009-2010 Tramon, we'll be fine whoever emerges amongst these other guys at the nickel, dime, and below spots.

    I predicted House, with a year extra of experience in the system, would be ahead of Hayward. We'll see what happens comes September 9th. I expect plenty of ups and downs betweem now & then. And then there will be a total of 19 games....

    I love that we are even having this discussion. There are so many young talented guys that we can hope one guy earns his playing time and isn't just thrown out there because that's all we have.
