AMAZING PICK!

Our secondary just became a strength.

This forum all loved Obi. Although the few of you that wanted him in the 1st were getting way ahead of yourselfs.

We are having an A+ draft so far.

would be a huge understatement to say I'm relieved we went defense with our first two picks.

Both picks may not work out, but at least we addressed one of our 2 biggest team weaknesses (Secondary, pass rush).

Not a big hitter.

Don't see it. Chancellor is a hitter. Obi doesn't slam people, he covers well though. If anything, it's one of Obi's weaknesses, I wouldn't trust him to run through people or stop a RB coming right at him one on one.

Preferred Zach Cunningham to be honest, Obi might be an athletic freak, but he seems to lack the skills. Typical Reggie move selecting a project in the 2nd round.

Love it.

We have our pair to Karl on the long run.

5'10 rangy speed guy with great skills and football IQ paired up with a 6'4 freak, who can cover TE's and can tackle really well.

Sounds familiar?

Our secondary just got a lot better.

I think McMillan was #1 and Obi #2 here for us.

Now we have to root for Duke Riley or Anthony Walker to be there in the 3rd.
