    Bruton is a good player with incredible athleticsm, but i don't think he'll ever be a starter in the NFL, maybe one day he proves me wrong.

    In pads he hasnt shown good change of direction skills.

    Since when is Deon always right?

    He doesnt have good coverage instincts, and he has very marginal ability to change directions. His hips are stiff.

    He does have potential, but as of right now he is Tim Crowder. He has shown upside, but overall he has been very average.

    He has shown us no reason he should be the starter over Reynaldo Hill.

    Bottomline, he has only been great on special teams in the nfl. He has been mediocre when actually playing defense. He should not be handed anything, and if he wants a spot in the lineup HE has to earn it.

    still wouldnt count out bruton.

    at dame he was at his best when he was allowed to rome the secondary. bang....just always there....ie on the ball.

    yes he did whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiffffffffffffffffffffffff 2 tackles that i remember last year..least he wasnt in the hole braxton sideways style on kuafmann... and dont get me wrong i like braxton. but that 1 imo is the biggest jock in b-cos history and guess what braxton has way more clout than bruton.

    but old bruton has some nice talent. blocked a punt and almost did it again.

    itll be interesting to see if allen can get that extra gear outta him....

    i think hes got it and i think allen can get it from him.

    I never said it wasn't. My point is that where he's drafted means nothing; how he played along with size and athletic ability DOES. Bottom line is he's a baller and that's the last ill say about it

    all this does is help prove to me that the draft is a crapshoot. thanks for the reinforcement, though.

    Back to mcbath I'd be OK with him but I'd prefer a faster FS like PP or byron maxwell who I think is gonna be a huge steal and could be a day 1 starter at FS and will likely go between the 4th and 7th round.

    Simple transitive property. HAHAH!

    btw, what # pick was Bruton... even with his stats and measurables?

    College gives u game tape to evaluate and we obviously liked what we saw in bruton. We know he was a playmaker. We know he has ball skills we know he can cover and tackle. We know he can run and jump. AND we know he's made plays in the nfl(tackles,fumble recoveries,forced fumble,blocked punt)with limited action. Our scouts know he is talented and his play in college is the MAIN reason they know this and like I said there's no way their giving up on a guy they saw potential in after 2 years of VERY limited action

    Bruton definitely deserves to be on this team, with ST play alone, which makes him SS depth at a minimal by default. He may start (one-a few games?) out of default, I'd bet a $1 he does.

    I'd bet $10 he never quite gets the instincts most desirable in a S and I often go to bed hungry, $10 to me is like $100 to most. That said, when his contract comes up, I truly hope he is resigned.

    Just because I don't think he will ever be elite, that doesn't mean he wont be a serviceable starter and I could be wrong, he may just get it and keep it one of these days. I think S is the second most important position on the field ( as a personal preference or as IMO ) behind only QB. I wouldn't want a "serviceable" QB starting very often and or for very long.

    Sometimes snaps really help a lot. This is a perfect season to find out which wheels wobble and which wheels make the car ride a rail. Start Willis and Davis trade Lloyd type of season ( lets not get the S thread off track ). So, Bruton starting some. Why not..

    Edit............... Playing with Dawk has had to help him.

    College stats mean nothing? How ppl play in college is what determines whether and when they get drafted. We drafted him because of what we saw in him IN COLLEGE. He's only 2 years removed from the draft. We won't just forget what we saw in college(a playmaker) and the combine and give up on a guy after 2 years who has ALSO made plays in the nfl. If we didn't care about college ayers wouldn't still be starting. Fox has been quoted saying he likes what he saw from ayers IN COLLEGE and he's interested in seeing what he can do returning to the position he played IN COLLEGE. To say how u play in college means nothing two weeks from a draft makes u sound really stupid
