Reading that reminded me of someone....Just for fun can someone guess who this was written about?
POSITIVES: Terrific shutdown cornerback coming off an outstanding senior season. Quick-footed in reverse, fluid flipping his hips and loses nothing transitioning with opponents. Easily stays downfield with receivers, reading their eyes then getting his head back around to locate the ball. Quick planting to the throw and adjusts in midair to make the interception. Physical and supports the run.
Yeah, I never understood why some here said his hips are stiff. I have never seen it.
I like him. Another pick that wouldn't piss me off at #15...
This may have no basis in fact, but I always look at CB as a position that you need to draft high to get a great one. I'm sure there are many good non-first-rounders out there, but it seems it's a good position to look at if you have a higher pick than you usually do.
Dennard is really good in run support as well, something that is always welcome in Pittsburgh.
