SoCal assures me there's no 'franchise' corner in the 2006 draft, so I'll sleep a little better knowing the worst Mike can do is trade down for one.
By this time next year, I'm betting folks here are screaming for help at Safety.
I have faith in Lynch at SS, even for a year after this one...Fergy is another matter as a 16 game starter.
I need to scout Lesueur a bit before completely writing him off, but last year coaches wouldn't even talk about him.
I hear Brandon Browner may be the next great...er...hope. You could see him switched to Safety in Training Camp and start getting reps right away. With his 'just ok' speed, the guy has Free Safety written all over him...assuming he's aggressive enough & can tackle.
Everyone knows you don't draft a Safety early...with the exception of a Sean Taylor (the pre-shooting-spree version) or a Roy Williams.
Anyone see anyone with that level of talent for 2006
...'cause if he's there, you might have your next Mike Surprise.
