Glad to hear this. Imagine how good this secondary could be if these top end draft picks all played to their potential.

+1, it is time for DR to prove 1st round status.
Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen prove that they are insured, but doesn't require every person to prove they are a citizen. Many who can't prove they are citizens will receive free insurance from those that are citizens.

Joe Witt said that Quinton Rollins has had the best camp of any of the secondary members this offseason.

he did that as a rookie, and was starting by the 5th game, and someone will have to take his boundry position away for him to play slot, edge CB is the higher value position, Randall isn't going to just roll over and let House or anyone else just take it.

I agree, if one of last year's starting boundary CB's is in danger of losing playing time, it is Gunter, not Randall.

Very exciting news to hear both Rollins and Randall are performing really well in camp. Making me really believe in this secondary and both of our young CB's just had the sophomore slump due to injuries. Hopefully our secondary is back to being a strength in this defense.

If Gunter beats out everybody then we should send everybody off to the same clinic he must have gone to... to taste the waters.

for sure, Gunter may have starting ability, but it wont be for the GB Packers, Ted doesn't draft CB's to play the slot, both Randall and Rollins have enough speed to play Boundary and will get reps competing for it, what was a weak position last year due to injury could become one of the strongest positions this year, gotta love all this competition :wink:

House and Gunter have been the starting CB's throughout OTA's, and I expect more of the same when camp opens. Randall and Rollins have been lining up in the slot, and I also expect that to continue. One of the starting CB spots appears to be House's to lose. King will be given every opportunity to unseat Gunter. The team has Randall and Rollins focused on the inside, and that's fine. It's where they are best suited to play. I won't be disappointed to see King and House starting outside with Randall in the slot. Nothing wrong with Gunter/Rollins as the primary reserves either.

Has anyone rated their tackling abilities? Open field, cross field, big physical guys, small waterbug guys ........... speedburners ......... even the tight ends. Run after interception abilities? Ability to not get called for pass interference. Ability to come up and make a tackle on a running play that made it past the LB plane. Ability to freak out a cornerback blitz ..... basically ability to clone Herb Adderley :roll: .... Etc. Etc.

I've heard that Randall is rotating inside and outside, too, which I like; but otherwise, I tend to agree with most of this post.
