  • Summary: Rambo had a star-crossed career at Georgia, but when he was on the field, he provided a big impact for the Bulldogs. Rambo multiple off-the-field problems. He was suspended for the 2011 season opener for a rules violation. Rambo followed that up with a positive drug test over the summer before the 2012 season that resulted in a four-game suspension to start the year. If he had stayed out of trouble, his draft stock would be higher.

    Rambo made his way onto the field as a sophomore in 2010 and was impossible to ignore. The instinctive safety always found his way to the ball and was a play-maker. He totaled 82 tackles, three interceptions, three passes broken up and three forced fumbles.

    Rambo was even better as a junior. He finished second in the nation with eight interceptions. Rambo also had 55 tackles and eight passes broken up. He was a ballhawk in the back end of the Georgia defense and did a superb job of reading the eyes of quarterbacks.

    Rambo only played in 10 games as a senior, but he still he totaled 73 tackles, three interceptions, two passes batted away, one sack and three forced fumbles. Rambo had an impressive performance versus Florida with a sack and interception. He also played well against Georgia Tech and Alabama.

    Rambo is an utter ballhawk in the back end. He totaled 14 interceptions over the last three seasons; a very impressive total for a safety. Overthrows in the middle of the field are extremely dangerous with Rambo in the secondary. He does a nice job of playing off his pass rush to take the ball away. Aside from interceptions, Rambo does a good job of forcing fumbles.

    Rambo would fit best in the NFL as a free safety to patrol the deep part of the field. He is quick enough to help cover receivers running deep and give his cornerbacks help over the top. Defensive coordinators like safeties who can cover tight ends, and Rambo should have that ability once he learns the pro game.

    Rambo could stand to play more disciplined football and do less gambling, but he is still a good weapon at safety for the passing-driven NFL given his tremendous ball skills. Rambo has to convince teams in interviews that his off-the-field problems are behind him. However, whichever team drafts Rambo could have a steal on the second day. He has the talent to be a high-impact starter.

    Player Comparison: Darren Sharper. The Packers selected Sharper in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft out of William & Mary. He turned into an excellent pro safety who was a ballhawk in the back end. Rambo was a similar player for Georgia the past few seasons. He is a couple inches shorter than Sharper, but they both weigh about the same. If Rambo lands with a good coaching staff who develops him, I think he could turn be an impact safety like Sharper.

    NFL Matches: Carolina, New York Jets, Washington, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Baltimore

    There are a lot of teams that could use Rambo on the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft. The Panthers safeties were dreadful in 2012, and he could probably play immediately for Carolina. The Jets are likely to lose LaRon Landry in free agency and Rambo could be a potential replacement.

    The Redskins have to improve their safety play and their defensive backs. Rambo's range and ball skills will appeal to defensive backs coach Raheem Morris. The Colts need to improve their safeties as well. Indianapolis' defense has missed a play-maker in the back end since injuries derailed Bob Sanders' career.

    The Bengals need a safety to pair with Reggie Nelson and Rambo could be a nice complement. He makes sense for two other AFC North teams: the Steelers and Ravens. Both could use another safety, and Baltimore may lose Ed Reed in free agency.

    Feb. 16: Bacarri Rambo is viewed as a third-round prospect, according to Mike Mayock.

    Most of the terms in a no-fault insurance QuotesChimp stay the same as in a fault coverage. The important difference is the personal injury protection coverage, known as PIP. The PIP piece of the policy contract pays for the no-fault advantages that are mandated by state laws.

    Most Quotes Chimp elect not to take out large amounts of med pay since they are usually covered by some form of health insurance and there could be duplicate coverage. However, med pay will cover one thing that health insurance will not: funeral expenses. Since the price of med pay is relatively small, it is a good idea to have at least a few thousand dollars in coverage.

    I agree there were several beettr options out there beettr than Roy. I also believe this move makes him roster worthy again, but do agree that Chicago aimed a little low. Many owners had cut him completely and that I do think was a mistake in a deep dynasty league. This was a best case scenario for Williams since he actually found a team that believes in him. We'll see if he can deliver anything at all.

    I am not quite sure how signing Williams prveos it was a mistake to write him off. He was cut because he is an overpaid, terrible WR. There were plenty of us who knew it when Dallas traded for him back in the middle of the 2008 season. It just took Jerry Jones this long to either realize it or swallow his ego enough to do something about it.Unless Williams can locate the reset button or Superman and turn the earth back 5 years, the uptick he just took in value is about as easy to see as the growth of a cactus. He just flat out isn't very good. With the many names in the free agent market like Braylon, MSW, Floyd, James Jones this is easily one of the worst signings by any team this off season (outside of Washington).As a Cutler owner, I have also been hoping to see an upgrade. Hopefully the Bears are still talking to someone else because I am still waiting for it to happen.

    A fabulous way to spend a salpkring PNW day. I'm in Victoria and it looks like the morning here will be nice before the rain starts again. Best to be outdoors while we can.Your daughter is gorgeous. Yes, yes, yes treasure these days and moments. My two sweet daughters are in their 20s still my wonderful friends, but along with the cowboys (who are gentlemanly and lovely) comes a bit of letting go, which is hard.Lorrie

    My favorite pylear for the Packers to draft. I think he's just what the Packers need at ILB. A fast, physical playmaker. He can cover TE, a Packers weakness w/ Hawk and Bishop. Move Bishop to Hawk postion and put Ogletree in a playmaking role and let him play. He's a very similar pylear to Daryl Washington w/ the Cards. It'll take a year to clean up some aspects of his play, but he's a playmaker that the Packers need at ILB. If we don't get Ogletree, Manning should be moved into Bishops role and Bishop again moved to Hawks position. We need a playmaker at ILB in a bad way. Bishop is good in that role, but if we have Bishop/Ogletree that would be a nice playmaking tandem at ILB. Ogletree is rough around the edges as a pylear, but his potential is top 10 in the draft talent. The problem is his off-field issues will likely move him too far down Thompson's board to get him. IMO he's worth taking the gamble on He would solve alot of problems for the Packers D!

    This is a terrible assesment of a player have you seen anything on this guy he was far and away the hardest working player on Georgia's team. He literally carried the bulldogs for the past two seasons and you question his work ethic. The guy was told he could never play the game again due to his neck injury / spinal stenosis he had to work his tail off just to be able to play. Awful take on the player. This guy is a stud and will do very well in Pittsburg.
