I did not mean he could grow up to be Sherman one day. Idiots might make that mistake. I am saying that Trufant who is a superior athlete to Sherman, will have a chance in Quinns defense of taking his own game to another level. He is the #1 CB/lock down LCB already. He is making plays on the ball early on that is already evidence of him improving significantly. People avoid throwing at Sherman. When they try he makes them pay. Trufant was not a guy that teams were afraid to throw at. This year, with a pass rush and his improved ability to make teams pay, they will shy away from his side if he hurts them the way Sherman does. That would be LCB play Quinn has been accustomed to.

I like the part where you called out the idiots making mistakes.

Haden is overrated, probably fringe top 10. Grimes is top 5 but his gambles make him just below the other 3.

(all imo)

Haden is in a bad situation. Playing for Seattle or Jacksonville, even here NOW he would have the chance to show what he can do. Its always the scheme. Don't let anyone fool you.

Not saying that he's bad, I just find others (Jonathan Joseph, Vontae Davis, Chris Harris etc) better than either him or Patrick Peterson, whose names are constantly thrown around at the top. Still top 10 (Peterson might not even be that) but I just don't think he's as good as other players. And it's easy to look at the Browns and say that he's in a bad situation, but that defense isn't bad at all. Middling, sure, but not bad. Very average.

Unless you're just saying the scheme doesn't use his talents properly? In which case, I'd like to hear how so.

It actually doesn't. Joseph is in a system that showcases his talents, Davis is also in a great situation. He is allowed to be physical and violent in his coverage. Chris Harris would not have a career if not for being a system that fits his talents. For Peterson, the secondary is actually built around him and his skillset.

All of those DB's have one thing in common. They play for teams that brought them in based on skillset, or with the idea of building a part of the defense around them. Haden was drafted based only on the IDEA of his skills. That's when you take a need high in the draft, but then do have any idea on what you have or how to use them. New coaching staff comes in and its no different.

Happens all the time.

They also don't throw on Haden's side much. Not after that rookie season. He's incredible even playing in a scheme he doesn't fit.

Trufant is on that level. Him, Sherman, and Revis are the best 3 in the NFL. And this is far from homerism on my part imo.

My top are 6 are Revis, Sherman, C Harris, Trufant, V Davis, Grimes, J Smith.

I don't see how you can put Chris Harris behind Trufant. He arguably had the best year out of any CB last year.

I'd put Haden in the top 10. Definitely 6-10 range. He's a good CB. Just not much help and stuck in Cleveland, overlooked by the drama of them being Cleveland.

hayden can play in any scheme, he can play off bump and zone..

Same with grimes..

Its not all about scheme, some players are good enough to play in any, and some arnt ( revis, namdi)
