…cornerback Jeremy Lane from Northwestern State down in Louisiana, which is not to be confused with the Northwestern University in Illinois that plays in the Big Ten conference. I was worried about this pick at first, since NFL.com saw fit to list him as a 6’0″, 184 lbs center, but it would appear that they just left off the B in CB. From what I gather, Lane is an aggressive, talented defender with long arms and enough fluidity in his movement to stick with receivers in man-to-man coverage (Greg Gabriel over at the National Football Post wrote a nice in-depth scouting report on Lane, which you can read here). He needs to pack some more muscle on to his frame, but overall he looks promising.
In ex-Seahawks news, the Rams kicked off the sixth round by drafting a kicker. Josh Brown has been playing well for them, but he’s in the final year of a contract that will pay him $2.7 million this season. I’m guessing that Jeff Fisher would rather not pay that much.
