|Terrence Talbott (#22)|
Name: Terrence Talbott
Weight: 171 lbs.
High school: Wayne High School in Huber Heights, OH
Jersey number: #22
Last year: I ranked Terrence Talbott #69 and said he would get scarce mop-up duty. He had 16 tackles and 1 pass breakup.
Talbott was someone who played significant minutes in 2010 that probably shouldn’t have. He was undersized and outmatched, but the dearth of experienced cornerbacks, the injuries to Troy Woolfolk and J.T. Floyd, and the departure of Justin Turner turned Talbott into a 13-game contributor on special teams and at cornerback.
There were lots of rumors this spring that Terrence left the team at one point, and that the coaches gave him a couple days to consider whether he wanted to stick with the new staff or not. Ultimately, the smaller Talbott returned to the team but was largely invisible throughout the spring. Barring further injuries in the defensive backfield, I expect him to be buried on the depth chart again in 2011, which is where he probably should have been last year.
Prediction: Contributor on punt and punt return; backup cornerback
