Anywho find one vet bring one in is the ideal approach I think.
It wasn't ideal parting but it also wasn't never come back AB type of move on. He probably is still hammering for a good price tag but maybe soon that price demand starts to lower.
I wanted a CB higher than when they took one also
but you don't draft for need alone
TE was very thin and they got the 2nd best one in the draft
They also needed OL help, they went there in Round 3 and their first round 4 pick
I can't really argue with those choices. They also filled needs and I guess in Tombert's minds they were BPA over any of the CBs on the board
still time to pick up a free agent veteran...hell maybe Nelson resigns..who know
I really think the 'steal' was signing Shakur Brown after the draft. Looks like we may have another Mike Hilton in the kid???I think they knew the kid from Duke was going undrafted.... if he medically clears he is a better prospect than we could have got in the mid to late rounds.... if he isn’t medically right then no harm no foul... and They got two good safety/slot guys as well.... they didn’t address it with a premium pick.... they got a rb instead, but they might get lucky here
He was one of three guys I really wanted with the 4b pick.... they got him for freeI really think the 'steal' was signing Shakur Brown after the draft. Looks like we may have another Mike Hilton in the kid???
Athletic and instinctive, Brown offers inside/outside cornerback skill and experience, but his average size and speed might make the slot a more likely home. He plays the game like an angry hornet with a relentless, edgy play demeanor. Brown plays with ideal eye balance and field awareness that complements his short-area twitch and anticipatory skills to challenge throws. He has the strength, athleticism and football intelligence to play any coverage technique and often traveled with the opponent's best wideout. He will eventually lose some ground deep and can be overtaken by big receivers. He's often chippy against opposing receivers and loves to come downhill as a run defender. Brown plays with the competitive spirit and talent to leave an imprint on the game as a starting nickel with CB2 potential.
He probably is a slot or safety but that’s precisely what we need most back there... we have the outside horses more or less...
