    Looking at "recent" history dilutes the sample size.....

    He's the guy that probably intrigues me the most because he was very good his junior year and looked like a legit 2nd round to possible late first rounder. He struggled a bit last year and that brought down his draft stock, but I think there were some injury issues that slowed him down. He played big time college ball and if the injury issues were the case, I could see him surprising a lot of people if he gets healthy.

    He's going to be interesting.


    Our system is so simple that I could see him being able to do a solid job and he's got the prototypical size you look for.

    Also, he just looks like he's made for special teams and i'm sure our Special teams coach will be fighting for him.

    Exactly.

    Could be a situation like when Mario Edwards was the 3rd CB chosen in his class by the Cowboys and was also a 6th rounder– He was the best of the bunch.

    There was legit top tier talent all over that FSU secondary while white was there and in the games I watched they rarely if at all threw at him. I saw a lot of off man coverage from him usually with a safety shaded over top( explains not throwing at him). I think he will make the transition to our 2 zone scheme well and be a very reliable CB4/5 for us

    I think he has a shot of improving simply by dedicating himself only to football. He has the physical tools to be a solid NFL corner.

    Is the title referencing that since Brown was a successful 6th round pick at CB we shouldn't over look White because he was also a 6th round round pick at CB?

    Or is this referencing when we drafted 3 CB's in 2000? Goodrich, Larrimore, and Edwards. Is that recent history? 17 years ago?

    This way of thinking is generalizing at it's worst. Not to mention lazy thinking.

    This is no different than someone saying 'We shouldn't get too excited over Xavier Woods because recent history says that our late round safety (Kavon Frazier) barely saw the field.

    Stupid.

    The point is recent history has absolutely nothing to do with Marquez White or anyone else for that matter.

    Hopefully, Awuzie isn't Goodrich and Lewis isn't Larrimore.

    What I wanted to say, but was too lazy to type. Just poor journalism with weak analytical premises....

    I would be happy with that result.

    I think what the OP means is that this guy has talent and size. Don't overlook him just because he was a late Rd pick, he had a real chance and I agree with the premise

    That was with clueless buffoon Larry Lacewell in charge of the draft.

    I'm missing why we should not sleep on him because of recent history? Is it because he's a late round pick like Anthony Brown? :huh:

    Once a player makes the roster draft position is irrelevant.

    I watched a few of his games leading up to the draft and came away very unimpressed. He hates contact and could not tackle me.

    Yes, in the running game he tends to avoid contact, but in the passing game he will mix it up quite well with big WRs.
