if he can be a chris harris with pass covering ability we will look pretty damn good this year in the secondary.

This is the type of news I want to hear, hopefully he picked up a lot while backing up Ed Reed.

this is also what i'd like to hear. for all we know nakamura is a pro bowl caliber safety (although probably not that good). it doesnt matter how good u are, ur not going to unseat reed from his starter position.

Id love a chris Harris with better cover skills, maybe he reminds him of chris Harris because he's wearing the same number he did when he was in Carolina lol

I do not want to cause a stir. But, if these practices are non contact. How can you tell what ability he truly does possess? I can see on his coverage skills, and how quickly he reads plays and such. But we still do not know if he can do the physical stuff.

I do hope he can bring some talent and attitude to the position. Would be nice not to have to worry about our Safety position.

I dunno if Beason meant hitting-wise because we don't illegally hit here in Carolina. I hope he can though, that would help our secondary 100%

They still have tackling drills of sorts, hitting sleds and body bag-like cones. i'm sure from just things like that u can tell a guy is able to make big hits.

i been listening to bucky brooks' podcast lately and he was talking about how when you get a guy into OTA's you can immediately tell if the player is going to be able to contribute in some way or is a total bust (he was referring to rookies in particular, but i'm sure any new comers to a franchise apply here). could be a particular aspect of his tackling form that beason likes. nakamura is a special teams stud so it wouldnt surprise me if he actually wraps guys up consistently rather than those awful shoulder tackles alot of NFL players in the secondary dish out.

Sure hope he works out for us. In reading about him he is the type of guy that you love to cheer for!!! Beat a bunch of odds just to be in NFL and sure hope he can help our secondary don't think he can hurt it much.

- Linebacker [b]Jon Beason [/b]looked strong in his limited work and told me afterward, jokingly, he feels "150 percent, maybe 149."

-- I will be writing about [b]Haruki Nakamura,[/b] who is competing for a starting safety job against [b]Sherrod Martin [/b]and others, for Friday's newspaper and online. Beason told me that Nakamura [b]"kind of reminds me of [former Panther safety] Chris Harris but with a lot more ability."[/b]

Fun fact about Nakamura: he was a national judo champ in the junior division as a kid.
