Re: Why not Jones, he played well in the spring last year, I

I liked the way he played in the spring game. I would rather have him 1 on 1 with a WR than Goodrich. I think Goodrich played well tho and he may start. I could see him playing the 5th man in a nickel package tho. Booth and Davis probably have the most talent so maybe they step up.
Worthy candidates are Booth, Sheridan and Mario. Sheridan is probably the most healthy of that bunch so he may gain a little advantage. Mario seems to not be able to shake the turf toe and Booth has the knee injury. I personally like all 3 with Mario having more experience.
I really like Sheridan though. To me, he has that Virginia toughness and swagger about him. Coaches love him too. I dont understand the knocks on him by some people on this board.
Don't think Leanthony Williams has a shot....he may get some reps but I think his window for the light to come on has come and gone. Maybe Fred Davis and Malcom Greene can come in and do something, even though I think Greene ends up a nickel guy or safety rather than CB.
Yep that is why I like him. Corners need to play like Mac Alexander did imo. Have that confidence and I get that from Jones. Not sure the knocks on him either. It is going to be a battle and whoever gets the job will have earned it. We have a lot if talent there.
