    Not sure if you guys have noticed (or if you don't care because you think he "quit" on the team...) that supposed "fall" of Greedy over what amounts to lies about his tackling via Kiper and McShay. He tackled everyone in legitimate reach. He missed a couple of tackles like all defenders do...even DW40. I've seen him make tough tackles in run support, but the evaluators seem to have honed in a couple of random plays to say he doesn't tackle. You rarely have to when Devin White is on the field and no one throws your way. Way too many great moments to let a few random plays take him down. Had some rough moments at aTm but overall another impressive season. Interestingly enough, the WR darling of the draft...DK Metcalf got shut down by who?

    A couple of months ago he was as high as the #3 pick, which was probably preposterous too, but he is definitely not the 2nd best corner. Yeah he'll be fine. Probably still a 1st rounder. But it's the 2nd year in a row an LSU player is being railroaded over BS. Finally came across a news source that acknowledged as much:

    The knock on Derrius Guice that dropped him to the 2nd round was that he spent too much time playing video games. The coaches tell players to stay in and play video games on Friday nights to keep them from going out and getting into trouble. So hee falls in the draft for doing what his coaches tell him to do.

    La'el Collins wasn't drafted at all because a woman be had dated in the past was murdered. La'el wasn't arrested and wasn't ever considered a suspect. Go figure.

    Wasn't it that a team asked if his mother was a prostitute and he made it up?

    If anyone in pro football believes the heresy without making their own judgement... they are doomed.

    TM7, I think.

    And probably others. It’s a ploy to test their self control. Dirty pool.

    Yes, Guice said he was asked at the combine if his mother was a prostitute and about his own sexuality.

    Mike Detillier said every year an agent of a player will target one if his client's competition for draft position and begin spreading harmful rumors to drop their value and he feels that happened to Derrius. It's a heinous business.

    The Mother/prostitute thing was Dez Bryant

    As for Greedy, why are they worried about tackling when what is believed to be the greatest CB ever ran away from any chance to tackle anyone ever?

    CB aren't drafted to make tackles
