Seems like recently everyone has been bashing on Ronald Darby. While he isn't an elite corner, he certainly isn't a bad corner either. I'd say he's an above average starter. He started in 8 games and had 34 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 9 pass deflections. He allowed 33 receptions for 398 yards and one touchdown. Not a bad season if you ask me. In comparison, Rasul Douglas —who everyone wants to start over Darby— started in 5 games and had 24 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 11 pass deflections. He allowed 35 receptions for 453 yards and 3 touchdowns. Not bad for a rookie.
Here's my pitch:
Start Darby this year. Let Douglas get some snaps and ease into the game more. Then let Darby walk in free agency, and have Douglas, Jones, Mills, and Maddox all compete for starting spots.
But tell me what you guys think. Douglas and Darby both had their moments, good and bad. I like Douglas and think he is a future starter. But Darby is a starter for now.
