[quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="BlueSanta"][quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="BlueSanta"][quote user="slipknottin"][quote user="Redeyejedi"]] He can play man coverage well.He is a safety that struggles in zone coverage..[/quote]
Cant say I agree with that. He can play the ball in the air, takes good angles. He played deep safety almost every snap in college.[/quote]
All the reports I am seeing say he has been among the best zone Dbs at the senior bowl, if not the best.
[/quote]* I read he got smoked by Umass FB/TE Emil Igwenagu on one play..**
His 1v1 cover skills arent as good as his zone. I have read that a couple times. But, most agree that is expected out of a 6'4 guy.
Evey db gets beaten too.
I just think a guy like this is interesting. The new stiffer rules on DBs and playing physical, combined with the rules which discourage the "enforcer" type safety I do think teams will start seeking out rangey guys who fill and block passing lanes. If this kid is capable of moving around back there at 6'4 he is going to be 1 tough SoB to throw over.
I wasnt really expecting much from him coming into the senior bowl. But, he is 1 of the guys I keep reading about.
[/quote]* I read one report saying he might end up being a** LB/S hybrid .* I mocked em to us** to fill the roll of Deon Grant* which i think he'd do great job of..** Do u have any clue what the big diffrence is between* Iloka and last yrs* similar player* Robert Sands?*** Does Iloka fall into that category or that of Kenny Tate?
Not Kenny Tate.Tate played close to the line of scrimmage a lot.Slip seemed to know some about Sands maybe he knows if there similar
