NFL Draft Spectacular: Defensive Backfield

In all honesty this is where I am a stud. Just know that going into it.


Darrelle Revis, Pitt
Total complete stud. Gretat ball skills and a guy who had few opportunities to make plays b/c teams didn't go at him, but when they did, they paid for it, big time, when he'd convert an INT into a touchdown. Also returned punts.

Aaron Ross, Texas
Size, physicality, speed. Ross has it all. He supports the run very well and obviously played in a high level in college. He's going to be a stud in the NFL.

Leon Hall, Michigan
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the top 3, and Hall is right there. Dwane Jarrett exposed Hall a little in my opinion in the Rose Bowl and he also didn't fare very well against Ohio State. That said, Hall has the size and speed to be a player at the next level.

Eric Wright, UNLV
Talent and skill, but character issues. Enough said. I mean the guy left USC. Who the hell does that???

Chris Houston, Arkansas.
I don't love Houston. SEC isn't really a passing conference, so I question the cover skills of Houston.

Marcus McCauley, Fresno State
Another guy I don't love. He got benched in 2006. That takes a lot. Pat Hill guy though, which usually translates well in the NFL.

Tanard Jackson, Syracuse.
Don't knock the player because of the program. Tanard Jackson can play. It just may not be at corner. He may need to move inside, or get considerably faster.


Ramzee Robinson, Alabama. Football player. He will be heard from.
David Jones, Wingate. Solely a question of competition.
Corey Graham, UNH.

McCauley, Houston

(One of the deepest positions in this year's draft)

Laron Landry, LSU.
My #1 guy defensive player in the draft. He is a stud. 100% stud. I'd give anything for the Patriots to have a guy like this.

Michael Griffin, Texas.
Only reason I put him above Reggie Nelson is the special teams, punt block skills he has.

Reggie Nelson, Florida.
Another stud.

Eric Weddle, Utah.
Versatile is his middle name. He reminds me of the guy from the Bengals who has the weird last name. He's a holder too.

Aaron Rouse, Va Tech.
No questioning his skills. Needs to be more consistent - classic underachiever.

Brandon Meriweather, The U.
He beat a guy over the head with his own helmet. I'm all set with this guy. Pacman Jones.

John Wendling, Wyoming.
Skilled, athletic and intelligent. He has the Patriots written all over him.

Sabby Piscitelli, Oregon State.
May be a LB, regardless, he's obviously skilled. Just need to find a place for him to play.


Piscitelli, Wendling.

Gerald Alexander, Boise State . Versatile and incredibly athletic.
