    So far 2 DB's, 2 DT's, a RB, a QB and a P, not a bad way of going about it.

    Well said. Taking the #15 rated LB or DB in lieu of a top rated P who has a far better chance of starting for you than others would makes perfect sense. I understand their thinking and I agree with the logic behind it.

    Heck of an athlete which you don't say very often about a punter. I'd love if he were a QB in high school. If he has a decent arm (and he's fast as a runner), he could be a guy who could convert a fake punt or two for us.

    Thanks, LB. That's what went thru my head when I saw his impressive athletic measurables. Obviously he's gonna sink or swim based on his kicking and place holding. But the hidden thing that jumped out at me is "high level athlete for a punter who could be an occasional fake punt threat". He's big and he can run. And a lot of punters were converted high school QBs so if he can also throw a decent 10-15 yard pass, that a decent fake punt option to consider.

    The fact that Decarmidillo or however you spell it, flew down to Florida a few weeks ago and spent the day with him, tells me he has a good shot at starting. Unless Butler (or anyone else) just blows him away in training camp which the Bears probably don't want to see happen...

    If the kid can boom it 47-50+ yards the other P's are going to have a hard time beating the kid out unless they know how to coffin kick like a mofo
