He has dreads which probably means he's a pretty good player

The more players with dreads you have, the better the team

Between the name and this, we might've gotten ourselves a hall of famer boys

I think Rasul takes over corey grahams roll 

Hm that could be interesting, could totally see that

Wasn't he thought of as a safety too coming out?

I hadn't thought of that. That's actually a really good idea

He returns punt apparently too

 

Like I said I believe that's what he was brought here to do. I don't think he'll be a very good CB but I think he adds a lot of value as a returner.

Overview: Maddox is sure to get a glowing review from his coaching staff as he has been a model leader and worker during his time at Pitt. While he plays with good toughness and has good athletic traits, his ability to stay connected in coverage has been problematic. Inconsistencies in man coverage combined with a smallish frame are a concern in my opinion, but his combination of long speed and short area quickness has him rising up the board.

Draft Projection: Rounds 4-5

Sources Tell Us: “He’s really shooting up the board in our building. Great tester but he shows it on tape with how athletic he is in coverage. I know our position coach thinks he can get a lot better with some work on his technique.” - NFC executive

"corner that has problems in coverage" isn't a positive sign.

I like the last name Maddox. That sounds like it would be a good player.

Sounds like he was drafted as a special teams guy. Considering we had to sign Barner to do the job last year we don't really have any natural PR outside of Sproles, who might be used strictly as a RB this season.

Andrew Brown would have been such a better pick,  especially if team knew about Timmy. This kid needs to be more than just a st ace. He needs to be Brandon Boykin or better.
