I occasionally like to see what people said at draft time, and revisit.
And boy are you an idiot.

He did "improve" his time to 4.56 at his pro day, but speed is definitely not an asset, size isn't either 5'10 196 with extremely short 28.5" arms. Was still a suprise he didn't get drafted, he can cover, looked good enough at the Senior Bowl, he did fairly well against Justin Blackmon and can return kicks. Chance of making active roster 15%... chance of making practice squad 35%
Naw, just kidding.
Good call. This guy may just be carving himself out a niche here. Still like us to get bigger, faster & more skilled on the outside, but he is a definite piece we're gonna need going forward.
