He could not learn to play tight without grabbing and clutching downfield. In some ways, he reminds me of Webster physically, but he was a press Man CB coming out, and he had better instincts for man coverage.

I am not sure how I was wrong about Paymah though. Just like Webster, I wanted all those guys to make the CB position better since they had been rolling with 2 UDFA's in Kelly Herndon and Lenny Walls before the Champ Trade. I thought Paymah was the most raw guy of the three, and he proved not to be able to translate to the NFL. Damn Brandon Marshall though for taking Darrent too soon
I want you to be wrong on SOMETHING! Actually, my recollection was that you were always higher on Paymah during his post draft evaluation than you were on Foxworth.

Interesting only in that Websters game reminded me vaguely of Paymahs and I hope that Webster’s career arc has a higher trajectory.
