Alford will be fine. I still think its laugh out loud funny how people were saying he was going to be better than TRU during OTA's and training camp during their rookie season. After rookie season a lot of the MB members here were saying that they are both great shut down corners. And now people wanna replace rocky after a sophomore slump. Lol one good year and one sub-par year due mostly to the rule changes.

I still think Alford is going to be absolutely fine with the addition of a simpler more effective scheme and a pass rush. I see his interceptions going up quite a bit.

I'm gonna wait 5 games before I judge him in any way this season. If he gets a penalty per game like last season and burned on multiple occasions *if* the pass rusher is upgraded from last year, any criticism he gets has to be deemed acceptable

I too think Alford will benefit from a new scheme. I also think the new coaches might be able to teach him to take his game up a few notches.

This!!! People seem to forget that his coverage was not terrible, he just got be on a lot of plays when the QB had time. Which, IMHO was on almost every down. It didn't just start with him. The same thing happens to William Moore, Desmond Trufant, and everyone else on our defense. Upgrading our pass rush will make a lot of players shine. Hopefully, since Gregory smoked, he can fall to us in a later round.

I think Alford gets a bad rap from some fans/ATL media in being compared to Trufant, a true (and rare) shut-down corner...it usually takes a CB 2-3 seasons to figure it out, my guess is RA begins to combine his obvious talent to the speed of the game this year....
