The Green Bay Packers Select: Brandon Underwood (CB/S Cincinnati)

It’s not the cornerback I wanted, but it is a player I’m happy to get. There are only two questions to his game. One, the jump ball question, he does not have the aggression to fight receivers when they try to go up and get it. Two, he is not the best of tacklers.

But he really does have an ability to contribute at both safety or cornerback. He had to play Free Safety in college because he had DeAngelo Smith and Mike Mickens rocking out at corner. But he can play either position. He has great instincts to play corner and not get beat. But he also has the ball skills and ability to disrupt runs and screens as a safety.

They got a steal here. Right now Double T is looking like a magnificent bastard in his checkerboard shirt.
