gut check time for the Vikings at the back-end of their zone mess
i can care less what other people say about this kid..he's going to be a solid Safety in the NFL. He's a football player, I just like his style.
I've seen half of the ND games this past year, and what this guy is is a football player. He's not an elite athlete, but imo, he can be an elite safety for both run support and today's demands on safety coverage skills.
6’2 214 pounds
4.56 40 yard dash
He's a smart player with great awareness. He's not going to get beat deep, he doesnt take crazy chances and just plays solid defense. Run Support coverage of the te's, he can do it well. He's a bit stiff and doesn't have the great athleticism but he's going to be a solid safety in the NFL. Pro bowl? Maybe, maybe not. 60-40 not..and he doesnt have blazing speed, but what safety does?
I like his tenacity and smarts. I want this kid on my team were i a coach.
Everson Walls was a corner that never was drafted because he never had measurables, he was a football player. So is this kid.
