I really think we need a safety opposite side ST.

Any one of these three I would take.

1. Laron Landry
2. Brandon Merriwether
3. Reggie Nelson

Obviously we need to trade down and aquire more picks. I am hoping we get an early second round pick. Then either Brandon M. or Reggie Nelson should be available in second round.

I think Merriwether would fit in just fine. We already have a bunch of players from the U to make him feel at home

Agreed. Even though I like Landry a lot, I would love to have Merriwether back there with Taylor.

2007 NFL Draft Prospect - Scouting Report
Brandon Meriweather played in 49 games at Miami and was a starter in the secondary the past two seasons. He showed his versatility by playing both safety positions during that time and has even played cornerback due to numerous team injuries. He displays excellent tacking ability and is not afraid to move up and play the run. Meriweather is solid in coverage, whether man-to-man or zone. Although he has a compact frame, Meriweather can lay a hard hit on opposing receivers and will make them think twice before crossing the middle of the field. He is a tremendous athlete with outstanding hands and exceptional closing speed to the ball. His talent and potential are never in question, but his conduct both on and off the field may be a concern for his new team. Meriweather continues to improve and has all the ability and talent to become an impact player at the next level. His conduct aside, he clearly has an unbelievable upside to become a playmaker for many years to come in the NFL. He should be one of the top defensive backs selected in the draft, most likely going in the mid-to-late first round.
