Ya their hope is they can find a guy in the draft I am assuming. But if not Young is more than capable of starting.

Isn't Young a SS. I assume they signed him to play FS yeah?


They're interchangeable these days w/ certain prospects. He's one of those players who can do both.

Meh signing. Good depth not a good starter but I'm happy w/ it.

he is an upgrade over Giordano.. but that isn't saying much, hopefully we still find a safety in the middle of this draft. I'm a fan of Swearinger.

Looks like he is an absolute stud off the field.

'middle of the draft' and 'Swearinger do not correlate. He's going in the 2nd round. Most rate him the 3rd best safety in this class.

This class is fairly deep with safety's. Pretty sure Reggie can find someone in the middle rounds that has the capability of being competitive for a starting spot within his first 2 years.

middle of the draft to me is the 3rd to 5th, I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that Swearinger is available at the top of the 3rd when we pick.

safety is the deepest I have seen in a while, there should be starters available in the 3rd and 4th.

He's older than most prospects in the draft so i guess that's what they mean. I don't think it's an issue when talking about a mid to late round pick though.
