better every year and he did just that when he totaled 5 INTs last year for the Tarheels. He won’t start this year but will get playing time and look for him to be the long term answer at Safety to pair with Robert Lester. He brings a swagger and hard-hitting mentality that was vacated when Mike Mitchell went to the Steelers for a big payday. But Boston is a smarter version of Mitchell. In fact he scored a QB-like 21 on his Wonderlic test and I don’t see him making the bone-headed penalties that Mitchell was famous for. Considering the DraftTek.com Big Board had him pegged as the #232 player, I think we could have gotten him a little later on. I like the pick but I was Desir(ing) someone else.
The Professor”- Uno, dos, Tre el Boston! Need trumped value here clearly. After losing Mike Mitchell and Captain Munnerlyn to free agency, the Panthers became thin in the secondary. Cutting the deck thin to win, only works in cards. A thin secondary, which was really a hidden vulnerability for the Panthers anyway, doesn’t get Ws. Nope, it blows them in the waning moments, ie. Buffalo and the playoff loss to San Francisco.
