Rover ~ Clayton Geathers ~ Central Florida Knights ~ 6015/220
Rovers are of course Hybrids, in that they are tasked equally with Run Defense and Pass Defense.
When evaluating RoverBacks, this is how I break things down:
Agility: Acceleration, Ricochet, Fluidity, and Verticity ~ that's Turn & Burn Acuity, to you Earthlings!!
Processing Speed: How quickly and effectively one Reads & Reacts to the developing Play.
Run Defense: Power, Agility, Combat Skills, and Processing Speed.
Pass Coverage: Agility and Processing Speed.
Broken down into SubCategories, it'd go something like this:
* Fluidity, above all things: Core Agility & Flexibility makes everything possible.
* Ricochet ~ How crisply and how rapidly one breaks in a new direction.
* Acceleration ~ Short Speed or Quickness. Closing Speed.
* Verticity ~ The Ability ~ or lack thereof ~ to Flips Hips and Turn & Burn in Pass Coverage.
* How quickly and effectively one Reads & Reacts to the developing Play.
* Combat Skills
* Processing Speed
* Processing Speed
Processing Speed: Mediocre.
Run Defense: Competitive. Impressive Power and tremendous Motor, but his Combat Skills are mediocre and his equally Mediocre Field Vision produces a lot of Bad Angles and Glancing Blows. He seems to manifest better Field Vision and produces more impressive Tackling from CenterField, but he doesn't have the Range to deploy thither.
Pass Coverage: Mediocre. Competitive in Press, and adequate in Zone, but Deficient in Off Coverage.
Even so, he's got the Power, enough Speed, and the Motor to bring Value as a Sub Package Enforcer.
But I believe that The Law of Supply & Demand, combined with his Family's Pedigree, has inflated his Market Value.
Grateful Thanks, as always, for the crucial Work done by the folks at Draft BreakDown!!
None of this is even remotely a Complaint, mind you, but rather a Warning!! Caveat Emptor!!
