    So how do you guys feel about Archuleta

    What i mean by that is, what are his strengths and weaknesses? I've heard that he's a liability in open space, and he plays better when he's closer to the line of scrimmage. Other than that, i don't know much about him.

    I seriously doubt he's worth what you all got him for......but you never know. Sometimes a different bulb makes a book better!

    Well, he has had back problems for starters. He does struggle in coverage, and frankly while he has a reputation for hitting hard, he's not the best tackler either. He has been known to whiff. His strengths are that if healthy he would be a big hitter, and he didn't fit DC Larry Marmie's system so he is probably better than he looked the last few years. Our new DC claims he is one of the better blitzing safeties, too, although I am not convinced.

    He also has a great work ethic, and his workout regimen is almost legendary. That said, he also doesn't have great size.

    Strengths


    Sacking
    Hard-Hitting...when he can actually hit

    Weaknesses

    He misses a lot of tackles
    Horrid in coverage
    Bad hands, I'm pretty sure.

    A good, but limited, player. The Skins vastly overpaid for his services.

    lol thanks guys. Good luck with witherspoon, i was hoping that the skins would go after him but they weren't interested. We can't have everyone.
