Good read from Volin but, just had to post this for the kid's nickname. :)

This is "old" news in today's day and age. Sorry if it has already been posted.

If he's there with our late 2nd or early 3rd you have to pull the trigger. This kid is a play maker.

01-29-2013, 09:49 PM

Lol at him being a "drug addict" and "criminal"

I don't know much about him...
But isn't his problem just pot?

Where is he projected? Also isn't he considered more of a slot nickel or Dime CB? We already have a stud at kick returner. With that said, with his past, I don't think we have the luxtury to take a waiver on him with any of our first 5 picks... if he's there for us in the 4th, then thats a different story.

you're crazy if you don't want this kid on your team. I dont care that he got in trouble for smoking weed a few times in college, take a look at how Janoris Jenkins turned out for the Rams last year.

As long as he can clean up his character issues, I think he would be a nice fit here. Usually, guys with character issues get worse once they get into the NFL. It's important for him to get over it now. If he does, welcome to Miami Honey Badger.

He has ridiculous reaction time. If he's there in the fourth, he must be taken. The juice is worth the squeeze at that point.

Everytime I saw him play, the guy impressed the hell out of me. Bearing in mind what we've spent 2nd and 3rd round picks on in the last few years, I would have no problem in us picking him up in one of those rounds. Obviously there are character concerns but the talent is there for sure.

Obviously there are character concerns but the talent is there for sure.

The shame is that you are right, there is real talent there. Legitimate talent. All you can hope for in a guy like this is that it isn't wasted talent. This kid could be a stud for any team in the league. You just have to hope he cleans up his act like I mentioned before. If he can do that, he is certainly worth his weight in gold.

He is a kid that made same mistakes, hardly makes him a drug addict or a criminal. You have to hope for his sake that he cleans up his act and matures. If he is on the board when the Fins are on the clock in round 3, I would take him. I think the risk outweighs the potential reward.

the good thing with a staff like Philbin's is that you would surround a kid like this with a support system and the discipline necc. to overcome his past. Everyone has demons.

I'd take him in 4th...but would jump up to get him...way to many red flags for rds 1 thru 3. If you got one good year out of him and then he screwed up...you have a bust for the early rds.

He wasn't really that great in coverage at LSU. Just great as a KR/PR. Sure, he could develop at CB, but I doubt he'll be ready to really contribute without a couple seasons of coaching up.

02-03-2013, 02:21 PM
I say go get him, but dont overdraft him we have to wait for him in the 4th. Lol at the people who think he's a drug addict, cause I didn't realize pot was addictive.
