Colts looking to sign Sean Smith

<< < (2/2)

bradentonian:
Both of these guys are being seriously overrated by fans because we are desperate.  Neither is a #1 corner.

Benchwarmer#1:
Miami had the 12th ranked defense in regards to passing yards against. Cox came in 10th overall in ints. Another interesting note, wright and talib both tied for tds in 7th place. Nowhere in my research into stats did I see Smith in the top 50 on anything other than FF and pass deflects. His best game was against AZ, who, well..they suck.

Now, I guess it depends on what some of you are looking for, but smith will not be good in coverage. He will be strong on the tackle, and he will get in the way against some of the taller WRs. Remember though, he's asking for 8mil per year, and that's a lot for a non island corner. Smaller-faster WRs will eat him up on long routes.

Just saying here.. I run a 4.5 40 and I'm nothing but a benchwarmer these days. His best time was clocked at 4.5. Just a worrisome thought.

Not saying we shouldn't reach for the guy, but just wanting to understand the FA obsession with him. He's not all-that. Out of the top guys, I just don't see a whole lot of difference in talent level.

I never said they are legit number 1's but they def have the potential to be.

My point exactly. Neither are great DBs but this squad is downright awful and needs an infusion of talent.

What scares me is that talib and wright both have slightly better statistics than Sean in their limited playing time. So really, what's all the hubbub bub?

Seems to me, it's the best of the worst, but the best of the worst is much better than we currently have. In truth, because of this fact, one corner should be a FA and the other from high draft position. It evens the chances of one of them being legit. We know what Cro, revis, or grimes would bring but all of them have their problems associated with them. The draft picks however, being at 13, gives Tampa some leeway when it comes to drafting the right corner.

IMO, the best option would be to trade the jets two seconds, a third, and sweeten the deal with a player (I choose Penn or DJ) then use the first to draft banks. It would give the bucs two very athletic, ballhawking corners for the next four years, and the next few drafts we would still have our firsts to draft a QB if free fails or to draft more defensive talent.

Stats, especially for CB's can be very misleading.  If you go by stats, Biggers is one of the best FA on the market this season.
