    Should Dontarrious be the MLB for us next season?

    He has the same speed and size (more or less) of Urlacher...and has proven in spot duty at MLB that he can hold his own!

    I love the kid, but he is too dumb to be starting MLB. Hope he can prove us wrong.

    Go Vikes!!!

    Urlacher is a freak and a converted safety, which helps with the pass coverage instincts, for sure.

    I think EJ is the answer in the middle next year, if Greenway is healthy and capable of stepping into the outside spot.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Dontarrious was the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year his last year in school....so while the rest of the Auburn students might be dense, DT sure isn't...AND he runs a 4.4 40!!!

    While I would never comment on someones intelligence.....without talking to them.....I would say there are different kinds of smart and his Scholar Athlete could really ammount to a hill of beans when it comes to football. To win the award you need to A) BE an athlete, and B) Have great grades.

    What is his major........let me guess........sociology right?

    EDIT: Nope his degree was management information systems.

    "Change of direction agility is only adequate, but can cover ground quickly … Will struggle to maintain position on the tight ends working in the short area … Gets a little too high in his backpedal and has stiffness in his hips that makes him look a bit awkward turning and dropping back in the zone … Does not locate and pick up the receiver well in zone coverage, seeing the play develop too late (also gets frozen by misdirection and play action)."


    Not a good enough description to play cover two at the MLB IMO.
