    Diggs and D Wilson is a good start to fixing this secondary, I still am SHOCKED we got Diggs with 2nd round pick, I didn’t think he’d make it even out of the 1st round. Now we just needing someone who can play opposite of Diggs like his former teammate at Alabama, Surtain or we could get Farley, then we just need a safety to go opposite of Wilson and this secondary should be good to go

    I’ve said that Trevon Diggs would be good, and the reason for that is because of the fact that Stefon Diggs and him are brothers, they give each other tips and help each other with different perspectives, and as we saw with J.J. Watt and T.J. Watt, and with Joey Bosa and Nick Bosa, it works to your benefit when your brother is already in the NFL and knows how it is

    I truly believe that if he stays healthy throughout his career, Diggs will be an all-pro for years to come. He’s smart and instinctual. That is a combo you want as a CB1. Read it here, later in his career he will become a top FS as well.
