I like the Darius Hanks signing as well.. Saw alot of Bama games in the last couple years and he is a great special teams player and a solid contributor at wide receiver ... He was hurt in the championship game and I think that is prob what cost him to fall out of the draft....

I think he could really push Banks for his spot

Minnifield is a lock, so him plus two or maybe three. If he's not healthy, he'll head to the PUP or IR, but if he's healthy he's pro-ready.
Since Chris Samuels, on the first day of the draft:
O-Line: 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
D-Line: 0
WR: 4

Kerby Long from James Madison? Well, we have had SOME success with a wide receiver from there before ;-)

We haven't "signed" any rookies drafted or not right?

No, he isn't. He had microfracture surgery in January and his recovery has been slower than expected. If he recovers fully from the injury he has a good chance.

While NO ONE is a lock... except the higher draft choices... Minnifield is likely to be protected to be back next year if he can't recover quickly enough. The Microfracture procedure takes longer to recover from, but, rehabbed correctly and with patience, tends to give a much better long term result.

He's a legit corner, and they will find a way to give him a fighting chance to make this team either this year or next. He was born and raised to be an NFL Cornerback... kid got good genes, and had a built in position coach, who happened to be pretty darned good, himself. This is a very sharp move by the FO.

Do you have any idea if he is healthy enough to take party in rookie mini camp next week? If not, maybe they are willing to wait to see how he looks ib training camp. Our just sign him to a rookie deal and PUP him for training camp and the first six weeks if the regular season.
