“Chris Grier has done a great job,” he said. “There are four rookies that are playing a lot. [Cornerback] Cordrea Tankersley and up front between Vincent Taylor, Davon Godchaux, Charles Harris. They've all done a nice job. We see Charles as a three-down player. We just don't see him as a pass rush specialist.
“Cordrea has length. He has really good ball skills. He anticipates well. He's really competitive. Even though we weren't seeing it on the field the first couple of weeks, we were seeing it at practice and if you look a the last year and a half, one of the things Adam always talks about is practices will be competitive and the best players will play.”
Tannenbaum said the organization is trying to “win for today - and Lawrence Timmons and Rey Maualuga do that - but you're also trying to develop for tomorrow, and between the Chase Allens and those draft choices, we're encouraged by what's happening on defense. And Matt Burke, our defensive coordinator, has done a nice job.”
