This is an exciting signing for IDP, but I can't say his value has increased as a 49er. As some of you long term IDP FFers recall, the Buffalo defensive has been know to be a source of IDP power at that strong safety position. Bryan Scott was quite the stud when playing there as well.
We need to watch this situation and listen in camp. He could be the next Kerry Rhodes and flourish on a new team or he could be the next Gibril Wilson, who was the top IDP on one team, but totally disappeared when he switched to a new system.
