    Assuming Sheffield goes, you have Okudah, Arnette, Wade, Fuller, White. That's a stellar group.

    Smart decision by Damon & depth is never a bad thing.

    Smart decision....he can really improve his draft stock with a good season. Hopefully NFL coaching in the back-end really takes to him. This could be a Jeff Hafley resurrection project that pays off in spades for Damon.

    I think Arnette has been a bit better than some people think, or at least has the tools. He's unique for his size in terms of the thump he brings and his physicality. Unfortunately, he had a few gaffes last year in terms of run fit and leverage. I think that can be cleaned up. But in terms of defense, and how so many teams are going to spread offenses, he has a unique skill-set as a corner who can come up and help in run defense. If he strings together a strong senior season, I think he can absolutely play on Sunday's with the increased emphasis on DB's who can support in run defense.

    I recall a scheme making Roby look inept once.

    Arnette's not a bad player and it is good to have depth...

    I just hope that when the coaches say that the best players are gonna play, it's not lip-service.

    Really smart move by Damon. This will allow him to get school finished and have his degree and also improve his draft stock.

    I think Damon and Kendall played more poorly this year than their actual talent is. I think with a better scheme, better selection, and better coaching who knows what can happen.

    I am glad he's stuck around because he definitely has the physical tools to be a very good player. He's big, is always right there with the receiver, and really only has to work on not getting pass interference calls.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Apparently, they've not identified their fall guys yet?

    Too soon?

    Edit: I do think it's cool that CC is playing that role. It's always good to have been there / done that in your ear.

    It's great to see former greats already thank Ryan Day. I would love to see Ryan really push for former players to be around our guys.

    It's a great selling point

  11. I'll say this: my preferred situation would have been Sheffield coming back and Arnette going pro since I do think both guys coming back could cause issues for 2 extremely talented guys in Okudah and Wade. Having said that, I'd absolutely rather have Arnette come back than have both guys leaving early. We know Okudah/Wade are dudes, but we can't say with certainty that Williamson/Banks are.

    The only question I have is with Hafley, if Williamson/Banks ARE better than Arnette, will they make Arnette the 4th/5th corner? I'd feel pretty crappy if that happened, but it's in the realm of possibilities.

    Well also... we didn't take a DB in 2019.... We need the depth

    Can't play just 1 and 24 all year.

    Why would Arnette and Sheffield cause problems for Okudah and Wade? IMO, the best will play, regardless of the name on the back of the jersey. Who cares who started last year when a new coach is brought in, there's no loyalty there.

    IMO, I'm shocked that Arnette returned. He's going to have to fight for a spot that's not guaranteed. IMO, he's an above average nickel CB at best who can help more in run support than in space man to man. Should've taken his chance in the NFL, because I can easily see him pushed down the totem pole. He may be better suited to move to S, and try and get in that rotation

    True, but we also have 13, 15 and 21 to work with as well
