I could see Merriweather's stock plummeting causing him to drop.
Does anyone see us trading down and getting him at a spot lower than 22, or moving up from our second round spot to pick him up as our second pick in the draft. Also, would taking him be worth the risk?
He along with 4 other teammates repeatedly kicked an FIU player after the player slammed another teammate of his to the ground. the player was prone while they kicked him.
At his house just outside of the Miami campus, Meriweatehr said he saw a suspicious vehicle outside. he grabbed his gun and went to investigate at which point someone shot his roomate and teammate so he returned fire. no files were charged.
OTOH, hes got all the measurables and size, he was one of the best CBs in pratice at the senior bowl (note hes a safety) and he made a ton of plays at Miami. At 22, i would only pick him if a whole lot of other players wre off the board but i could see a scenario where i wouldnt be mad at picking him up.
He would help on the nickel and give hamlin a run for his money at free safety.
