BSMW GAME DAY BOARD (as of 4/15/07) – Rank: 74th MDP: 59.0 (1 mock)

BSMW SUMMARY (as of 4/15/07)

The Patriots worked out David and his brother Kenny, a running back, on the Auburn campus in March. The Irons come from a long-line of college and pro players – uncle Grant plays for the Raiders, where Grant’s dad Gerald once played linebacker. The profiles say David is a tough, aggressive corner with the speed, quickness and athleticism to run with receivers and compete for the ball. But the profilers say his lack of size hurts him, particularly in tight coverage and run support. Worse, he is said to lack instinct and awareness in diagnosing plays. Suffered serious knee injury in high school and had follow up surgery a couple of years later. His rehab forced him to the juco route, and he played only two seasons for the Tigers. But he started every game he played, and showed signs in 06 of full recovery from his knee woes. Even though one mock has him ascending to the second round, most see him going in the third round or later. Hopefully, the Pats would have addressed their secondary before then, but if they continue to add depth, Irons seemingly has the toughness and athleticism to be a consideration.
