Recommended Posts

Mullen, Conley, Joyner, and Abram. One of the worst Secondarys to possible Pro Bowl Secondary once they gain experience?

I like the leadership. I like his tackling skills. I like his blitzing. I like his versatility in coverage. Good height and 40 time. Sounds like fluid hips (haven't watched enough). Didn't know much about the dude, but not upset about the pick. Especially since we slid back and added value.

Joyner is a good blitzer too. Who needs DE's when we can just blitz our slot CB's!?
