Sounds like Dashon Goldson.
Nope. He much more sound when it comes to that. Tackling is a technique that we can coach him up to do, too. He played very well in the Senior Bowl and has great range. He's a natural in the box, but can interchange with Reid in the backend like Fangio likes to do because of his coverage skills. Whitner is too much of a liability in coverage even though he had a better year in that department. He already has the size we love plus his strength is a bonus not to mention his 78 in wingspan. O.O (You know Baalke likey that) He hits like a Mack truck and has the propensity to cause TOs as his six INTs and 3 forced fumbles will attest.
This is my favorite SS of the group, but both Dixon AND Loston could be there later than the second. Either way, we need one of those three for sure.
