Darius Slay - Is he elite?

He got beat for two TDs yesterday. 

I don't know if you can say the first one is on him. They were in zone coverage and he came from outside of that. Without knowing his responsibility on the play I don't think you can put it on him.

the second one would have been a score on any DB.

Not Nnamdi Asomugha.

He's not big but he knows what he's doing. Is he elite at press? No but he is very quick and has a decent pop.

One picture where Bryant probably slipped isn't enough to judge him. I agree he is a very solid man to man CB, but at 190 lbs., he has had to give up some in press coverage against the huge WR's playing in the game today.

Nnamdi chose the dream team Eagles over the Lions.

Now he's a housewife for Kerry Washington. Some men have all the luck.

I don’t think the Lions have a single player I consider elite. 

Mabe we still have the old William Ford cronies running our scouting department.9_9

If not them, perhaps trained by them. The only thing I’m certain about the Lions is I will be dead before they win a Super Bowl.

This question isn't really fair anymore, there isn't any elite CB in the NFL right now. No one has done what Asomuagha and Revis did the years they played great. Not Sherman or Patrick Peterson. They're good, really good but not elite like.

 

An you almost have to place Slay as a top 10 CB in this league. You look around and name, names, and Slay stacks up well with most anyone you mention.

Slay was ranked higher than Xavier Rhodes on the list, who stands at #55

I'm a bit surprised, because I thought most considered Rhodes slightly better, but it is awfully close!

Lions fans: your thoughts?
