The knock on the kid coming out was that he was running the 40 at about 4.65. I have yet to see him in position to make a play on the ball or jump a route. We've all seen the tape the guy has great ball skills and hands. What we havent seen is him come close to making a pick.

I know it's way to early to label a player one way or another but, so far the tape hasn't been good. If he continues to get beat this bad do you think he should be given a shot at safety?

The guy has great size shows a fire for hitting... thoughts?

He is a 5th rounder and still has made some nice pass deflections. I have not seen Gamble really come close to making any picks either. Btw, Morris Claiborne has yet to record and int.

He'll be fine eventually. You can't play fast until you have a good understanding of the game.

Should his speed become an issue, you could also put him in Captain's current role, assuming we could find someone better to play #2.

I believe he had a pick in the making, but Godfrey knocked it away. I think he has played well for where we got him. I also love his enthusiasm when he plays.

He's a fearless tackler. I believe he just doesn't play zone well, may need time to adjust.

Norman has swatted quite a few balls away. I'm not exactly sure who you're watching if you haven't seen this.

I guess pretty much shutting out a speedster in Julio is slow .

He's playing pretty solid for a rookie.

I ve seen more of him chasing wrs from behind than him being in a position of power. I'm sure if you pull up times targeted by starting rookie cbs, he would be leading for most yards allowed.

He was only on Julio a couple of plays, and almost gave up a big play had Julio got two feet down.
