    Derek Starit: Will He make the team?

    I hope so, but it does appear he's on the bubble. Playing some safety may have helped his chances (Managini loves versatility), but I'm not sure he's guaranteed a spot.

    Thoughts?

    He's definately good enough to make the roster...the real question is...will he get traded?

    Yeah, I think he should, but it's a battle right now.

    He should make the team because after Suggs failed his physical their were rumors that the Browns still wanted Strait the Jets should have traded him then. They probably could of got a 4th maybe even a 3rd.

    With the signing of Hank Poteat I have no idea what Mangini thinks of Derrick Strait. Would we carry 6 CBs?

    Strait looked awful in coverage in the game tonite. He was all turned around and beaten on several long plays.

    Yeah, he didn't look good. Had a few nice tackles though. I think his versatility (playing a little safety) might help him.

    He'll make the team but he will be traded by next years draft. If he was a 4 after tonight he dropped to a 5-6

    i watched him at the game today. he was playing with the last team defense and was getting beat by last team wr's. wasn't he suppossed to be a first rounder when he was drafted. now i know why he slid down to the mid late second round. he should have gone further.

    IMO its gonna be either him or Ray Mickens who gets cut in the race for the Nickleback spot...or if Barrett and Dyson are the starting CBs, Miller can play nickleback..

    I'd like to think so. He's versitil and Mangini likes that plus you never have enough DB's ask Mangini about last year with the Pats.

    Strait was drafted late in the 3rd Round.
