If a team wants to utilize him right away as a cornerback, he needs to be in a defensive system where he can do what he has always done at NC State.
Considering how negative of an attitude the guy has and thinks he **** doesn't stink, I don't think he is going to be able to mentally handle it if he gets owned in man coverage in the NFL. He has a huge chip on his shoulder. Maybe that will be a good thing for him. Look at what Dre Bly did in college and has a zone corner in the NFL. He had some great years, broke some records, then he **** out of the league. Why do you think that is?
I think he can become a VERY GOOD player in the NFL. He might even be a standout, but I am adamant he needs to be in the right scheme. I just don't see him being a guy the Broncos are taking @ #28. I hope not. MUG is right. I would meltdown. We could do a lot worse though.
BTW, I found the Derek Wolfe picture I drew the other day.
I didn't know he had character issues. I just was curious your take on attributes and skill set. I didn't know you hated Wolfe like I hated Worthy!
