On that same note, Dre Kirkpatrick (from last year) hasn't sniffed a start for the Bengals yet either.
Never draft a Saban corner in the 1st round.. ever. It takes years to deprogram them. Kareem Jackson, in his 4th year with the Texans, seems to have FINALLY completed his deprogramming.
Most Bama defensive players in the Nick Saban era are pretty average when they reach the NFL. Dareus isn't a bad player, but he isn't top 3 worthy in retrospect.
Their offensive players are pretty good though, it's pretty confusing.
