Do you think he was bad value in the first round? Sounds like you believe in his potential, but he’s a long term project. Not sure if that’s the type of player you want in round 1, a guy who if he ever reaches his potential, it will be towards the end of his rookie deal and you’ve lost arguably the most valuable NFL asset - good player at a premium position before they get their 2nd contract.I've been watching him since high school and I think he's going to be fine. He's just now where a kid like Sam Shields was in terms of development switching from WR to CB. Shields didn't earn a starting job until his 3rd year in the league.
DB is a tough transition from college to NFL for kids that have played DB their entire life - much less a kid that has only been doing it for 2 years.
