Can someone list 10 safeties they feel are ahead of him?

 

Earl Thomas

Eric Berry

William Moore

Eric Weddle

Troy Polamalu

Cam Chancellor

TJ Ward

A. Rolle

B. Pollard

J. Byrd

 

I think he's on the cusp like Searcy and Ihedigbo. Then you have up and comers in Reid, Vacarro and Mathieu who will likely be in that group very shortly if not already.

 

I think Mitchell was good for the team but he wasn't without his faults. He missed few more tackles than you'd like to see but we used him wisely while blitzing. Keep in mind Lester had 3 picks in limited action too so there was the benefit of playing behind that front 7.

 

I can see DeCoud benefitting too for a fraction of the price and Maybe Harper can offer something on blitzes like Mike did too.

 

Its unfortunate, you'd have liked to see him grow more here.

Good list man.  You think Searcy is on the cusp?  Haven't paid attention to him much lately.

Mitchell didnt even START in Oakland. I wouldnt even call last season a breakout year, just one season for a guy drafted high.

Dude should definitely give props to the front 7... without their stellar play he would still be a middle of the pack guy,

I agree, which is why I'm still salty that we let him go.

 

Problem is, media and everyone else ignored him while he was killing it for us...  Then he signs with the Steelers and hasn't played a down for them yet, and now he's a name to know.  fug the media.

 

Who wrote the article anyway?  Dameshek?
