Yeah, we definitely have the worst depth in the conference if not the league. Our depth is terrible at safety. I can understand their skepticism in Crocker. Frankly, he's only started 1 full year, and despite playing well, it doesn't mean that he's going to keep playing at that level.
I'm still skeptical on how much better of a player Crocker is to Bryan Scott. Sure, he's better in run support, but you need safeties that can make plays. Especially when you only have 1 playmaker starting at CB. Scott wasn't a consistent playmaker, but he showed me over his 2.5 years as a starter that he could create some plays, by picking off passes, forcing fumbles, etc. during his time here. Neither Crocker nor Milloy are really those types of safeties, usually their only plays come in the form of tackles. Someone has to step up and be the type of guy that can bat away passes, create turnovers, etc. at safety.
Well, I'll disagree somewhat. I think Crocker should be an upgrade over Scott. Scott made way too many mistakes, missed tackles, dropped INTs, blown coverages to make up for the few plays he did create. Now, that said, I would still like to have Scott on the roster, I think he's an adequate NFL backup and that would greatly improve our depth at the position.
