Ex-Buckeye Whitner takes 1st Round Player under His Wing

While he was at Ohio State, Donte Whitner was known for being a leader on and off the field.  As a pro, things are no different.  Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports that first round choice CB  Leodis McKelvin is living in Donte's home. 

By Bill Smith

            McKelvin, the 11th pick overall, came from Troy State.  While he is an outstanding athlete, he has never been involved in the complex defenses of the NFL.  He has never been part of a man-zone combination or a rotating zone.  He has a great deal of upside.  Nothing will get a coach fired faster than having a team with a lot of upside that is never realized.

            Donte has been known not only as a hard hitter but one of the smarter young safeties in the league.  He is helping keep McKelvin on track to realize his potential.  He might also be thinking about a coaching career after his playing days are over. 

            Hopefully for Ohio State and Buffalo Bill fans, that day is a long way away.
