Yeah I want a guy that can cover too, that goes without saying, it canít hurt to be able to cover and have the size to laid the wood, wrap up a TE, bring down a RB on and island.
I want a guy who will be able to cover him, regardless of height.
I would still prefer his size to that of a shorter DB regardless off his pro day.
For the record, Williams put up a pretty poor vertical jump of 33 inches at his pro day, so I wouldn't be exceptionally confident in his ability to dominate jump ball match-ups.
Canít hurt to have the size these WR are getting bigger every year. You donít have to have it but itís nice when you do. Iím only 5í9 by the way.
You don't need to be 6'1" or taller to cover NFL receivers.
I agree, some comments on Jimmy ď- Jimmy is regarded as one of the top cornerbacks in the nation. He switched over to cornerback from safety following his sophomore season and never missed a beat. Excelling at both positions he is a very physical gifted athlete. Has a lot of experience. Lead the ACC in interceptions last season with 5. Has great size and outstanding speed. Hits and tackles well. You will not see him miss many tackles. Has good technique. Wraps up and is physical enough to battle anyone on the field. Very active player who is very fundamentally sound on both pass coverage and his tackling. Takes pride in his game. Turns his hips well and closes on the ball well. Jams his man at the line. He gives WR's a fit. Makes plays all over the field. A hustle player.Ē
Just because two guys are of similar size doesn't mean they should both be able to do the same things. You have to look at the individual cases.
ď- You will not find many DB's better than Williams in college football. He is a smart and savvy player who has all the physical tools to succeed at the NFL level. He should be a high draft selection, good chance he may even be the top DB taken.Ē
Here is the thing; if he does not make it at CB he plays Safety. What happens if he can play CB, at the next level, he would be a stud.
He is only in his second year, if he gets better this year and Jimmy show he can play, this could be the begging of a beautiful friendship.
Furthermore, I think Rams fans overexaggerate how much Bartell has "got done" thus far.
All this talk about Jimmy this started running through my head..
The guys play a game of basketball with "the Jimmy," a man who talks about himself in the third person. Jimmy sells odd shaped training shoes and George is an interested investor. Fresh from the gym, he attends a Yankees meeting about thefts, during which he sweats profusely. Jerry goes to the dental office and discovers they now carry Penthouse in the waiting room. Elaine gets tickets to a benefit for the AMCA (Able Mentally Challenged Adults) featuring Mel Torme, the "Velvet Fog." Elaine tries to meet a handsome guy at the gym, but instead talks with "the Jimmy," who makes the date for himself. On a follow-up visit to the dental office, Jerry feels the dentist and his hygienist may have lived out a fantasy during his time in the chair, the type of thing you might read in Penthouse. Kramer has a visit to the dentist complete with Novocain, later while wearing a pair of Jimmy's shoes, winds up getting a him a seat at the main table of the benefit.LOL LOL LOL
