Earl is a Texas guy, if that makes any difference which it probably does by a very meager amount, i think Jerry will make a move for a guy that can take advantage of good pass rush.
    I already read a report saying Jerry was a big 'Earl guy', still though it involves a move up just depends on how much were willing to spend to do it. I'm still glad you guys aren't in contention for him anymore, he's exactly what I want in our safety.



    Also semi off-topic but maybe a Canes fan can help me out. Who was the better player at the U, Phillips or Rolle? I'm guessing Rolle, but I didn't and still don't follow Miami all that closely to know who lived up to the hype and had a better career.

      I still wouldn't be suprised if we took a safety in round 1. Nobody really knows how Phillips is doing health wise.

        Rolle was really before my time, but Id still say him. He was a playmaker, a returner for a little i think, and really benefitted from the talent that was still there during his time.

        Phillips was highly touted coming in, did well, but he was disappointing mostly because he never really got the support from the other DB's who were very average at best and besides a few players that most people know in Calais Campbell, Jon Beason, Brandon Meriweather, and Tavares Gooden, he was pretty much left out to dry his senior season.

          With the deal he recieved, this is going to make re-signing Sharper in NO all that more costly.

            We'd be drafting a SS, Eric Berry would be a waste there and wont be anywhere near 15, Earl is a FS, Taylor Mays is too big of a risk, Chad Jones isn't worth anything near 15.

            Im Assuming we got Rolle for two reasons, one reason being he fits Fewell to a T, and to allow us to go out and focus on MLB because after McClain, Weatherspoon, and even Spikes in the 2nd, there are no real clear upgrades to Goff.

              He also goes on to say that makes him the highest payed safety in NFL history.
              It worked out well for the Redskins and Adam Archuleta.

                    Rolle was a cornerback at the U. He couldn't make it as a CB in the NFL. He was considered a bust for as high as he was drafted. The move to S turned out to be a career saver. Overpaid. No doubt in my mind.

                      You got it backwards. I would keep Rolle in the box and Phillips in centerfield.

                        of course you would, you're a cowboys fan.
                        A CB turned safety in the box? Yea, I'm gonna pass

                          Idk this really screams McClain or Weatherspoon for me, why else would we pursue Dansby? We clearly want McClain or Weatherspoon because they have the ability to cover well yet stuff the run.

                          But i do agree Rolle fits Fewell's previous coordinating scheme in Buffalo like a glove

                            Nice even though we overpaid, now all we need is dan Williams, Daryl Washington, matt Tennant, Vince Oghobaase and James starks from the draft and we'll be re-loaded ready to compete for the Major hardware.

                              I was really surprised with how much money Rolle was able to coax out of a team, although it certainly makes sense for the Giants (albeit not financially.) He'll give them a solid starter there though, and they can focus elsewhere in the draft.

                                I don't think any safety is worth 7 mil a year, but he does make them better. Good for them.
