Wilson and Luck may have a problem? But not the guy that just had major knee surgery? You're crazy.

 @Nate Dunlevy  @hankster  He's better than mediocre. He was injured and out of shape in the beginning of year and had to learn a brand new defense starting in pre-season(with no offseason with team). He got more familiar with the scheme and really flourished. I don't remember him having many caught balls thrown his way, and he's a tackler, a great one at that. I really don't think any of those guys I named have any better potential than Vontae. Those "awful games" you speak of were all in the beginning/mid of season when he was out-of-shape and hurt. The longer he's been with the team, the better he gets. 

 

I will say I wanted Xavier Rhodes for the longest time pre-draft and it hurt when we passed on him, but looking back Bjoern is a bigger need and I think will be great as Pags new version of Kruger. After Rhodes, Trufant, Hayden, and Banks were gone, I didn't see much being offered in the draft at CB, at least no one I see as a future #1 corner. 

 

I think Davis will prove you wrong and show it more than a good trade. I kept my eyes on that pick #56 in draft and seeing who was there I was still happy with the trade. If one of those I named were still there I think you have a valid argument, but as it stands, I don't see any reason calling the trade a bad one.Vontae was obviously the best corner we had last year.

 @Nate Dunlevy  @hankster which corners were better than Vontae that were still on the board at pick 56? The 3 Corners available at #56: Jamar Taylor??? Robert Alford? Dwayne Gratz? You really think any of them would be better than Davis?

 

Davis is a monster and really shined bright near the end of the year when he got healthy and in shape. I think it's obvious that the Davis trade was a GREAT move...Sure we have to re-sign him next offseason but so what?
