Would you have taken Thomas No. 2? Ed Reed? The guy is that good. I mean, why not take the guy that locks up FS for 10 years No. 2 overall?

Hello no I would not have!

I would have taken ndamukong suh at two in 2010 draft instead of Thomas. I would have taken Julius peppers at two in that 2002 draft instead of Reed.

Both those guys were top end safeties in college just the same as hooker and both weren't even close to the 2nd overall pick. Please stop with the safety at two stuff.

searched for highlights of this dude. There's one clip of him recovering a fumble. one.

HOF BOUND!
It's nice to get more competition at the position, but it's going to be fierce, especially if they don't move Ward to safety. Free agency and the draft will determine that. Even if Ward does move, Williams will have to compete with Reasor and Redmond in the slot, plus whoever else we add. Can't forget Prince Charles Iworah either; he is still developing, but has the speed and flexibility you need to play that position as well, if they chose to work him there.

I'm reading a lot of opinions that have this move putting Ward back at safety. I really disagree. If this threatens anyone I think it threatens Redmond and Reaser and possibly Chris Davis. I really don't see this kid having much of a role at the CB spot at all. We are pretty deep there. But we can stand a some competition at the nickel and dime back spots, and that's where I think we can see some movement.

I think people are reading a little too much into this when they include one of the starting CB's as being in danger or that this signing will move Ward to safety, pushing Reid in a battle with Tartt at SS. While that could happen I seriously doubt that this signing will precipitate any if this. To be sure I definitely think that Bethea won't make final cuts. Williams can play FS for sure (which gives us flexibility), so this could precipitate an outside chance of pushing Reid into a SS battle with Tartt, but I doubt it. This team will be served better with Tartt and Reid on the field at the same time. Plus, we have just too much youth and talent in the secondary to keep Bethea's age around, so I think he is gone regardless. But I think this signing is more of a signal of what the coaches invision in the front 7. I think they are gonna really turn Armstead and Buckner loose and force the O-line to protect against our best D-lineman:

SDE - Buckner
DT - Dorsey./FA/rookie
DT - Blair/FA/rookie
WDE (LEO) - Armstead (or WDT and FA WDE)
SAM - Lynch/Brooks/FA

That 4-3 (under) alignment will cause all kinds of problems for any opposing offense. With the CB's we already have coupled with those twin towers playing on the DL I see us playing a lot more press-man on the outside. That's a scheme that's definitely taylormade for Robinson, Ward, and Donte Johnson. So if we're going to a Seattle-style scheme then Ward won't be going to safety, and Williams will likely compete for nickel and/or dime, if nothing else provide more depth at an already deep position. My only questions are Robert Saleh's play calling (don't know much about him) and who will play the WILL alongside Bowman?

Dorsey sucks in the 4-3 just ask Kansas City

Feels good to be wanted again.

Sure does!

I'm also thinking that this might be used to include 1-2 DB's in a package deal trade,

Nice....We just need to draft Ahkello Witherspoon from Colorado in the 3rd/4th round. The most underrated cover CB in college, who did a great job against John Ross. He has great size and length. Sleeper of the draft.

RCB: Robinson, Reaser
LCB: Witherspoon, Johnson
SLOT: Williams, Redmon
SS: Tartt/Reid (vice versa)
FS: Ward, Rookie/FA

Release: TBrock

Yup!

RCB: Tramaine Brock; Keith Reaser
S/CB: Will Redmond; Chris Davis, K'Waun Williams & Prince Charles Iwora
LCB: Rashard Robinson; Dontae Johnson & JaCorey Shepherd
FS: Jimmie Ward; Eric Reid, Marcus Cromartie & Marcus Ball
SS: Jaquiski Tartt; Antoine Bethea & Vinnie Sunseri
You know we talent starved when we get excited about taking a 1 year flyer on an undersized corner who didnt play last year. Yet, I'm still excited over this.

Complain that we aren't active in free agency.

Complain about every free agent we sign.

....gotta love the webzone.

This.


It's is small, but it is nice to know that he picked us over other teams, even if it's because we have his former coaches.
