I'm not so sure. For one thing, he has already been paid once. That helps for two reasons. He's not trying to make a name for the first time, and we were already paying more than we paid Breeland. He is much more likely to sign for money similar to the last contract. We will have to see.

Are you talking about Fuller? Because Fuller has never been paid. We acquired him on his rookie contract. He's made a little over $4M over his career.

I stand corrected then.

That said, I think Fuller might be the one to re-sign. This defense seems to be geared to take advantage of tweeners in other schemes. So, we invest heavily in safeties instead of CB.

May be you mixed up Kendall with Kyle - who already got paid.

A question was raised that I would like an answer. If Reaser was in this draft, assuming good health and knowing what we know, where would he rank? Is he still a 6/7/UDFA? Is he an early day 3? Is he better than that?

Probably 6th-7th..  it’s a decent CB group this year.  
 

It is really hard to ignore multiple lower leg injuries though.  I like what he shows when healthy

That seems reasonable. Tendons are always an issue to worry about and he would be depth regardless. 

A thought struck me. This is the way Belichick's LB used to look. Other than one gifted player, eg Vrabel or an edge rusher, he ran out dreck, year after year. The point of drafting Jerod Mayo was to finally get some stability.

I'm looking at the past few drafts and none of the CB's at the bottom of the first or early/mid 2nd look like they're any good. The only exception is Tre'Davious White at pick 27. We might have to trade up 5-10 spots if we want a day one starter.

The FF consensus mock had us getting Trevon Diggs at #32. I'd be alright with that. He's brothers with Stefon, 6'2, a senior.

Or Jeff Gladney from TCU was available. He might be a good pick.

Looking into Jeff Gladney. This is who I want without our first pick now

Gladney is very good. He's a little bit on the smaller side at 183 but he can cover and is fast. He may raise up drat boards so we may have to trade up.

I'd be okay with trading up like 5-10 spots to get him. Seems like a solid Breeland replacement.

I like Fuller. His interception in the SB was all his anticipating. Remember Washington's defense was really pissed when he was traded to KC.

He almost got two. Once we figured out how to play to his strengths, he was a stud.

I really want to keep Fuller as well. For a guy who plays in so many snaps, you almost never even see him when you're watching the games, because the WR he's covering never gets thrown to.
