Now Im alittle on the fence about this pick. I think the kid has alot of talent and could very well be the top CB in the draft. But a couple of notes. First, which im sure you all heard of, Hayden had a life threatening injury in practice where he took a knee to the chest and it actually severed the main vein going to the heart. Had the medical staff not done exactly what they were suppose to he would have died that day. Now he has been cleared to play but honestly what kind of impact does an injury have on this kid as far as confidence and the ability to play with no regard. I mean damn, he almost freakin died. In an interview he said he is fine, obviously said that, and it will only take one good blind side hit to shake the rust off. Hopefully this is true.
My second point is Mayock kinda said something that isnt true. He said Hayden is excellent in off man coverage,which he is, and that is exactly what Pagano is looking for in his corners. Actually, Pagano wants press man cover corners, that jam the reciever at the line and throw the timing and off their route. On tape the kid can do both so it doesnt worry me. Just pointing out Mayocks mis-analysis. Stupid I know but he made the comment. Anyway what are your guys thoughts on taking Hayden?
