Default donovn warren at CB or FS

I thought he was suppose to go in round 2, some even said late 1. Went undrafted.

Will he be the next Ryan Clark and be our next undrafted safety? He looks very good as a Michigan ball player, anyone got more info on them?

i think his 40 time killed him. Even then, I didn't think it would make him go undrafted. I don't even think I know he was available.

I have a bad feeling about him, I mean pre-draft he was hyped up as this huge sleeper and this awesome DB prospect but since then teams have avoided him like cancer...

It would be great if he can fill a need at CB or FS and become a full-time starter despite his draft status but I'm not gonna just assume he's this great pickup yet.

I mean the only real reasons I can find why he went undrafted and was never signed after camp are his 40 time and a concussion he had at Jets camp, I feel like there has to be something else that's not being reported because it almost seems like he's "too good" of a prospect to have not been resigned at some point during the season...

On December 20, 2009, Warren announced his decision to forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2010 NFL Draft.Warren stated that the NFL's Draft Advisory Board advised him that if he entered the draft, he would be selected in the first three rounds. When Warren signed Drew Rosenhaus as his sports agent, he was projected as a first or second round draft choice.[Warren was considered to be a man-to-man defense specialist who needed to develop his zone defense skills. Some sources, such as Todd McShay, who felt he was just a cut below the top five cornerbacks in the draft prior to the 2010 NFL Combine, had predicted that Warren could be selected in the second round. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. predicted Warren would be drafted in the third or fourth round of the draft, describing him as “a physical corner" who "likes going head to head on an island with the best receivers in the country, he’s never had an issue with that. Anticipation is good. Gambler, though. Gave up some big plays.”Warren aggravated an ankle injury shortly before the NFL Combine, where he struggled in position drills and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds. His disappointing performance was cited as damaging his draft stock.
New York Jets

Despite earlier predictions, Warren was not selected in the draft. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets immediately after the draft. Warren's godfather, former Pro Bowl defensive back Mark Carrier, is an assistant coach with the Jets The 2010 New York Jets have several cornerbacks on their roster, including Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, Dwight Lowery, Drew Coleman, Marquice Cole and first-round pick Kyle Wilson. Some sources speculate that Warren would be converted to safety. Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that although Warren would be practicing at both cornerback and safety, he felt that Warren's best shot was at safety. Warren, who was sidelined during most of the Jets training camp sessions with a concussion, was waived by New York on September 3, 2010. Warren would be signed to the team's practice squad on September 6, 2010. Warren would later be released from the team's practice squad on September 7, 2010.

Well he's undrafted so he's not going to really be a draft bust. If he can tone his skills then he can become really good.

From what I've read his combine 40 time was diminished by a leg injury and he's said to run somehwere around a 4.4 40 time as opposed to the 4.59 at the combine, so I don't think his speed will be an issue.

I hope we give him a shot, I think he has much more upside than Butler/Lewis/Gay

that would be good that means we can go elsewhere in round 1, although if the patriots kill us in the championship game due to our secondary we need to obviously "Improve". And yes I do think we beat baltimore.
