    I think Lewis will be, at the very least, a solid starting corner, and I still think that Allen has the most upside of the group.
    Luckily, and hopefully, Brown shouldn't be needed in a big role for a couple more years. That will give him time to develop along the lines of Keenan Lewis and he will be ready when Ike leaves, if not sooner.

    I think Cortez Allen has Ike Taylor like upside, while Keenan Lewis is maybe more in the mold of a Chad Scott and Curtis Brown is possibly a Dewayne Washington.

    It's in Scotland.



    And, in case we want to get even further ahead of ourselves, Allen Island is in Canada and Brown Island is in Virginia.

    Yeah, I would disagree with you on that one. While I get the bigger physical DB thing...I believe he will be a better DB than either Scott or Washington.

    Chad Scott looked like a tremendous CB to me...before he tore his ACL prior to his second year...he was never the same after that...

    Yeah, I guess I remember Charred Scott...more than any DB who was even remotely serviceable.
