With Poole gone, I've been looking at this deep secondary group to find potential replacements for him and one guy I think would be a very good fit is Amani Hooker. The kid has good size (6'0 210 lbs) and played all over the place for Iowa (safety, nickel, linebacker). He's a true DB who wins in the middle of the field between the numbers. He has no problem manning up vs TEs or dropping and playing his zones cleanly. He also plays the run with physicality, not afraid to fill his alley at all. He may not test well, but I think he's a football player over an athlete. He's very smart and aware on the field. If he's a third safety or fifth corner, I think he's in a very good spot. I think he truly can upgrade what Poole gave us and provide more versatility to the defense/secondary.
