    I've seen plenty of Nelson to know that he does have some technique problems and his tackling is at times subpar and can be a liability at the next level. There is no way Meriweather is going to be this year's Watson. Watson fell in the draft because,of his fluctuating weight, his lack of speed, and you know having the "underacheiver" label stuck to you throughout college doesnt help your chances. As for Meriweather he has just as much talent of say a Nelson, maybe more so. The only reason we're are even talking about him as a 2nd rounder right now is the two "incidents". The fight for one and returning fire with a legal handgun. I dont think either of these will be large enough to keep a player of Meriweather's talent out of the first. There are players that have done worse and were still selected in round numero uno. I just can't see him making it out of the first. He should test out exceptionally at the combine.
    There's a huge difference in coverage ability. Merriweather isn't close to Nelson. I'm not worried about Nelson's ability to provide run support...and Brandon could very well be better in that aspect. But that's not really our problem. Our problem is coverage and it has been that way for a long time now. I'm much more interested in getting a FS that has elite coverage skills than a FS that can provide run D.
    I dont know about that one. I've seen Nelson bite one too many times on play action to give him that. I'm sure Reggie will be picked before Meriweather... most people have him going anywhere from 9-15 it seems but, i dont think he will have the better pro career. I dont think there coverage ability is nearly as far apart as you think it is and Meriweather has him beat in speed, vertical, and tackling ability. Like I said before I would be happy with either one but, I'm liking Meriweather better in the long run. In either case, they would give us some nice flexibilty given they both have the talent to play safety or corner. I'd be surprised to see either make the move to corner though.
    Combine will settle some, however, no matter how well Merriweather does, I highly doubt he gets selected before Nelson. I'll be surprised if Merriweather is a first round pick at all. I see Nelson going between 15-20. Lot of teams in that range could use him.

    Another issue and it is a big one, is his character flaws. You really cannot underestimate it. ...and as long as we have Jeff Ireland... We won't even give Brandon a second look.
    I agree, unless Nelson flops at the combine (unlikely) he will be drafted before Meriweather. I do love Meriweather's potential though and think who ever drafts him is getting a great one. I do disagree however, I think he has 1st round written all over him, given a nice showing at the combine. We'll have to wait and see... I can't wait. (one of my favorite times of the year.)

    • Question for all: Who are some off the radar type players you are most looking forward to seeing at the combine?

      For me...

      Georgia RB, Danny Ware (Steal, steal, steal)

      UNC RB, Ronnie Mcgill (Rumor has it, that he's got his 40 in the low 4.5's.)

      Pitt State RB, Germain Race (I love the small school guys and you gotta love his production)

      SC WR, Syvelle Newton (I wish he was doing some QB drills)

      Delaware TE, Ben Patrick (friend of mine)

      Cent. Mich DE, Dan Bazuin (The next hybrid?)

      Ole Miss LB, Rory Johnson (I dont why but, he intrigues me)

      SC CB, Fred Bennett (Coming into 06 season, considered to be 1st Rd. talent)

      WYO S, John Wendling (Another on of my favs, he can do everything you ask of him)

      Wake S, Josh Gattis (Always been a big fan, i think he's destined for bigger things than most do)

      Thanks BoneKrusher^

        Hahaha... Who was the last great NFL DB to come from Texas? Don't tell me Huff cause the jury is still out on him.

        I'd take Ross, but I've got my reservations.
        Coming our from Texas is fine as long as your last name is not Williams.
        I don't know if I should be laughing with you.. or at you.
        :?
        That bad? Ricky Williams and Mike Williams.

                  Bold= Not invited

                  Korrodi is someone I want to see also. Great size, Good Arm strength, very accurate.

                  Bruce- good choice... I've heard that some scouts have been calling him a poor man's Jason Taylor. I dont think he has anywhere near Taylor's speed but, perhaps he will surprise at the combine.
