    Not yet, cb is a hard position to adjust to at the nfl level and few players come in and are immediately top flight corners. This will be a big year for him development wise though.

    There's a reason there's been so much talk of upgrading the D-line. Don't you think that QBs having all day to throw is part of the reason why Mo or Carr weren't looking that great?

    Mo had a solid rookie year and was hurt and learning a scheme that didn't fit his style of play this past season .. I wouldn't jump the gun by saying he's a bust thus far. Not at all. Not to mention his front 7 was decimated last year. No cb stands a chance behind last years defense

    In theory, he is a bust considering his draft position and the expectations that came with him. However, he still has time to redeem himself if he can stay healthy and grow as a professional.

    He is on the precipice. I question his desire and toughness. Doubt he ever comes close to his billing.

    I can use Brandon Graham or several more young players that are labeled as bust if it helps you understand the point. Mo gets the benefit of the doubt from Cowboy fans due to him being a Cowboy.

    They're job is to defend, whether it be 3 in they're direction of 20.
    I prefer to think that our D line half suffered because our secondary half been stinking for a couple of years.

    I'm not ready to give up on him at this stage of his career. He'd gotten off to a late start as a rookie, had injuries and in general, has simply had a tough time to adjust to the rigors of the NFL game, its talent, scheme changes and such. As JG stated, he also needs to get stronger to physically afford the run support necessary in our current scheme. I'm also anxious to see if the coverage might be adjusted some to accomodate more man coverage and less zone.
