Melvin White: Keep or cut?

Recommended Posts

There is absolutely no reason to cut Melvin.

He's progressed from a depth slot to starter, so you could say he's made the grade.

That being said, it's also not a reason not to invest in more talent at the position.

It takes years to develop into a talented (much less an elite) CB.

You keep developing at a position and drafting into it until you "solve" it (aka Keeks).

Here's to another GettleTastic draft :)

Speaking of draft, my beer is getting warm..

White was a rookie last season. In addition, playing DB is difficult as hell in the NFL nowadays. E. Thomas and Sherman had their share of growing pains in their rookie campaigns too. Give Melvin some time to develop. He's not the next big thing at the position but he appears like a solid contributor.

Um. Dude. Melvin is probably going to be our starting #2 CB for the next few years. And if he shows as much progress as he did this year, he could be a very, very good CB.

What is this thread?

Kid's got all the physical tools needed to succeed as a CB in this league and showed enough promise during the season that he is capable of utilizing and further developing these tools.  No risk in keeping him, he'll be average at worst for cheap.

Melvin White could end up being a very good corner. He's got the tools and he's got good size. We most definitely need to keep him. I'd give Norman one more shot too despite what haters will say.

I agree with your comments the best. Cornerback is very difficult position to master in the NFL. Players out in space get exposed more because they are out on an island.

Take the top rookie cornerbacks from last year and years past and they all got exposed at one time or another. He did a good job last year. He is an excellent tackler and I think he will continue to improve and shine in coverage. He is one of the players I am least concerned about. Hopefully Mr. White has a bright future.
