    Simon just screams "Pete Carroll DB" .. 6-2, 200 .. 40 in between 4.4 and 4.5. Man-to-man specialist but still pretty rough around the edges. However with our secondary he would have a lot of time to sit back and learn from some of the best DB's in the game.

    Supposedly a lot of people were surprised he declared and felt he would have gone much higher had he stayed another season. Could be a gem in Round 4-5.

  • Right now #5 CB spot on our roster is between Thurmond and Maxwell. If you draft a CB be prepared to cut both those guys or have a wasted draft pick.

    Why would both guys need to be cut? Winfield replaces Trufant and any new drafted CB would compete with Maxwell and WT3 for two spots.

    I'm a big fan of WT3, and think he can be a great player, but he hasn't had a healthy season yet, plus it's his contract year. If there's another season of injuries, I can't see him getting re-signed.

    We've got a talented roster. There's going to be some tough cuts, for sure, but it's only going to lead to a better team, right?

  • Simon definitely fits the profile, but I'd be shocked if he sees the 5th round. I'd also be shocked if Seattle drafted a corner before then.

  • I don't know, he seems slow footed and doesn't play with the kind of frenetic energy Carroll covets. He also seems unwilling to put his body into tackles. In rugby, (I'm a rugby coach) we call players who throw their arms out toward ball carriers while moving their bodies out of the way "matadors." I see a lot of matador in the kid. He rarely makes solid contact with the ball carrier.

  • Good player and kearly is right,he is off the board between our pick in the 3rd and 4th. If he isn't I would take him in a heartbeat with our early 5th.

  • He has the size measurables, but he is pretty widely considered as a CB who struggles with man press coverage. Looking at his tape, I'd have to concur. He is a guy who if you look at prospects measurables -- might infer he can do that. But he doesn't show an aptitude for that when you watch him.

  • He fits the height - length - speed profile. But his tackling is weak... and that is being kind. He would need to be a late round pick, and I suspect he will go early to a copy cat team.

  • Wow, listening to the incident makes me so angry. Why is there still so much blatant racism in the south? It's disgusting, what the hell it's 2013 for Pete's sake. Gross. I don't know how he didn't punch that dude in the mouth.

  • i think he's a good developmental corner that can take over when B. Browner tenure is done.

  • This was easily the best call of the draft by a .net user. Great job.... picking the first round is hard enough...a dude in the late rounds is impossible.

  • Lol yea, when I first read this, I thought you were commenting on the draft pick that had already happened. Great call.

    I just hope if he makes the team, the LoB will rub off on him, as I agree with the above posts......kid doesn't like to hit.
