    The kid is tough, a play maker and I think has been humbled by his recent events. I think he could be a steal and someone that could help this D gain a bit of an attitude and help cause some much needed turnovers. What do you guys think?? Would you take the chance?

    We have been needing a playmaking safety for years and this kid could fit the bill. He can play CB as well.

    I doubt he's been humbled.

    He's still relying on his ability to get him an NFL job.

    Let him get cut and sit out of the NFL for a year while he stares at a minimum wage job and then we can talk humbled.

    I agree. He is too small to play safety and CB is going to be a struggle. He is not even that good in coverage.

    No thanks..

    We got D'wayne Harris bossing it on punt returns and this guy will take years to develop as a DB.

    Along with the character concerns, I say no

    Yeah, he's been humbled, but is that because he's sorry or just that he got caught?

    You shouldn't have to toe and cross the line when it's your time to shine. I don't want any part of him.

    Watch this interview. Seems like he really is remorseful and has his head in the right place now. If he's there in the 5th or 6th, I'd definitely snatch him up. He's got a lot of talent. He's a little short at 5'9", but he makes up for some of that with his tenacity and ball skills. At the very worst, he'd be great in nickel and dime situations. Put him on a strict "no trouble" policy and I think he'd be a steal late. It's all about finding gems in the late rounds.

    He has no position as others are pointing out. Special teams/return man and dime package is about all I can see. I sure as hell wouldn't leave him 1 on 1 with a NFL WR. No thanks, we learned our lesson with Pacman.

    Even if he were a model citizen, I'm not sure if he can play in the NFL at 5'8 or what ever he is. Maybe a special teams player, but I wouldn't draft a special teams player till late, if at all.

    No, no, no, no, no.

    If he wasn't humbled enough after getting benched by Les Miles the first time, what makes anyone think he's humbled now?
