Additionally, with the legal situation still floating around, the pick feels like an insurance selection for the franchise in case they have to move on from him. Nonetheless, Bland is a long, twitchy corner that should provide depth to the CB room, and given his athletic traits– it’s no surprise that DC likely pounded the table for his selection.

Shane P. Hallam on Twitter: “Daron Bland is my CB68. Tall with long arms. Long strider who gets down the field quickly. Good arm usage to knock down passes. Raw when changing direction. Back pedal needs work. Good upside developmental prospect. #HallamAnalysis / Twitter”
