    That's a good thing, imo.

    He's got the talent to be good but needed time to develop. Good to have a year of separation between him and whichever freshman corners earn snaps this season. Taking so many DBs in the last class, we needed a RS or two to establish depth because we don't seem to be signing more than a couple DBs in the 2013 class.

    I think it has more to do with him coming in undersized and having more talented players in front of him

    So he's now John Walker Red? Then after a year of aging he'll become John Walker Black.

    Yep. Torn ligaments in his fingers only made this decision able to be made early and dictate reps. It's a good sign that we have enough talent at CB to make the call this early.

    The crappy thing is this is how last season started. Lost one guy, no big deal then BAM! Players were going down like dominoes.
