C'mon now - don't let the breathless panting fool you. He's not winning the ROY because he won't even be the best rookie safety in football this year. He's fine. He'll probably be an improvement on what we had but there's no guarantees that he'll beat out Watts or even Lucas for a starting spot.

This isn't Eric Berry, man. He's a guy who was passed over by every team in football at least once and most of them passed on him twice (including the Chiefs). He might be solid, he might even be pretty good.

He's not winning any league awards.
I totally agree that he’s likely not winning any league awards or anything, but I don’t care if he was the 6th safety taken, he could easily be the best in this class. He has great ball skills and I wouldn’t be shocked if he leads the rookie class in INT’s. I don’t think he’s winning DROY either, but I think you’re selling him a little short. For crying out loud one of those guys taken ahead of him was Marquise Blair, who had no business going before him.
