This is great news for Draftniks. This might be one of the best classes of Safety's in mobile in years.

I sent an email to Matt McGuire from WalterFootball asking why Myron Rolle is ranked so low, since every time I watched Florida State play he jumped off the screen. I know he left football to further his education, but I honestly view that as a positive. He is highly intelligent, high character, and for such a young man he has his priorities straight. Matt responded saying Rolle quit on his teammates, doesn't care about football, and will most likely go undrafted, which to me seems ludicrous. I currently have him going to Denver in the 5th on my "ideal mock draft". I will jump for joy if that happens

He did not seriously say that did he? He obviously missed all the stuff that led to Myron Leaving in the first place, and it was not ANY of those reasons.

Rolle did the right thing in taking the Rhodes Scholarship. If folks don't understand what that opportunity means they don't get it.

Myron was considered a likely top round pick had he continued and played football. Fortunately for him, he's a brilliant guy and got the Rhodes Scholarship to study Medical Anthropology at Oxford. That is an honor in itself. The kid can play ball.

Yeah, I was really taken back by that response from Matt. Prior to him getting his scholarship I thought that he, Berry, and Mays were the top safety prospects in college football. Mays has been exposed a bit, Berry has elevated himself to the clear number 1, and Rolle took a very rare opportunity to better himself. I would love to see him here in Denver learning from Dawk. I am hopeful that Bruton and McBath can develop, but I think Rolle has more upside. Realizing we don't have a 5th round pick, I just bumped him up to the 4th round on my mock. I'm excited to see how he plays at the Senior Bowl

I think they do not have their own 5th, but finally get the 5th they traded the Cowboys for Montrae Holland.

They trade our 5th for Smith and the other one for in other deal. We don't have a 5th this draft.

I'd take this kid in a second... issue though is who do we cut?

Bruton and Barrett have been awesome for special teams, solid and very athletic depth.

Renaldo Hill is our QB and McBath did pretty good last year on top of being a 2nd round pick.

One went for Smith

The other (which Oakland now has) was swapped for Gorin and our 7th back.

That is my feeling too unless Dawkins is a surprise retirement, I would really like to have him he has great instincts, is a smart kid, a leader and a really solid SS.

Scott Wright has been raving about Rolle. Any ideas what round he is slotted for? Wouldn't mind us getting him and having him learn from B-Dawkins. I like McBath....not too sold on Bruton anything more than a good special teamer.

Actually that pick is held by Detroit that we traded last year to move up and select Brandstater.

Rolle would be a nice pick with the potential to be an absolute steal, depends on how much he actually wants to play football though.

Not a big deal - just didn't want even more hard feelings directed to Alphonso. ;)

Rolle would be a solid pick. I really hope he is available for Denver to pick in the 2nd round or 3rd if he slides for some crazy reason.

I was talking about Le Kevin Smith not Alphonso.
