Default How did Joe Burnett look to y'all?

From what I saw of him he looked good. He was with the receiver every step of the way each play I saw him. And even though he dropped that pick in the oakland game atleast he was in perfect position to make it.

On the other hand Ike looked terrible once again. Do not know what has happened to him.

Seems like a lot of people are looking forward to the draft and thinking our top priority should be drafting a CB like Eric Berry with our 1st round pick. Well we drafted Burnett and Lewis, so I think first we should see what we have in them, and perhaps these final 3 games will be a good opportunity.

It's hard to say. My forehead was against the table most of the night.

From the very few plays he was in, he actually showed awesome mechanics and did what NONE of out starters have done... PLAYED THE BALL! He also was in great position every time the ball was thrown his way. Hard to judge, but from the little we've seen, he did fairly well and seemed confident in his body language.

eric berry is a safety.... i for one think a free safety should be on the short list for 1st rd consideration. ryan clark makes nice highlight hits, but his coverage is average at best, and he's getting old.

That is what I am thinking as well I would love to see us get a safety to play with Troy.
