We had 1 or 2 other young guys start to look alright last year.  He's been off the field al Lot the last 2 years.  Between the other young guys starting to look alright and drafting Chickillo to try to groom.  Cutting him to try to open a little cap is a good option.

I don't know about cutting Alexander. Not sure what is gained by that. I know the suspensions are hanging over him but he's not Josh Gordon wackadoodle and isn't a big expense. Might be another thread altogether but to me Frank might stick

 


In Topic: Shaq Thomspon, possible safety project?

Im pretty sure even in the highlights he wasn't out in coverage as a safety.  Just because you are a decent in coverage as a LB doesn't mean your going to play SS.  Just because your athletic enough of a LB to play it doesn't mean you can play DB.

Again I use Mays as an example.  Guys was Twice the Athlete Shaq is and was a All-American Safety in college but he still couldn't transition well to the NFL.

You haven't watched many "highlights" but yet you can say definitively (in your opinion of course) that the value is going to be better at other positions? Alright guy....

posted this in the combine on the main board but

 

I'm wanting to know what the big hype on drafting Shaq to come in and play SS. I haven't watched to many highlights of his. Just because he is a good athlete and can hit hard doesn't mean he's going to be a stud SS.

Look at Taylor Mays that came out of USC several years back. Waaaay more athletic and would lay someone out, but hasn't been good in coverage at all. (Btw he's a FA this year if looking for a cheap stop gap at SS)

 

Im not on the Shaq bandwagon.  There is going to be much better value for us at WR, OT, DB, or DL at 25 for us IMO.

Outside of the likely gone trio of Parker/White/Cooper, this is the only other WR I'd consider at 25.

Basically, he's the only WR I can see us landing in R1 unless we really fall for someone else.

The 3 Collins kids, Strong, Phillips, and Odi are my shortlist.

Strong and aSpeedy slot guy in the 4th like a Lockett or Diggs. We just Brought in a 2nd WR coach to help out. 3 WRs in these 2 loaded classes with all that coaching help and will be here for a while to gel with Cam is the best case scenario
