Intangibles: Diagnostic Acuity, Field Vision, and, above all: Processing Speed. And of course: Motor. Motor Matters.
Agility: Acceleration, Fluidity, and Closing Speed. And of course: Verticity!! Turning & Burning in Direct Coverage.
Pass Prevention: Combat Skills in Coverage, and Timing, Vertical Burst, and WingSpan at the Catch Point.
Run Support: Appetite, Tactical Discipline, and Combat Skills ~ working through Traffic & Tackling Mechanics.
Agility: Impressive. Mediocre Long Speed, but outstanding Fluidity and competiive Verticity.
Pass Prevention: Excellent. Great Length & Strength, good Tracking & Timing, and strong Combat Skills.
Run Support: Outstanding. Aiken's extraordinary Field Vision and Processing Speed often get him in on Run Defense, and he excels here, working his way tenaciously through Traffic and tackling with astonishing Consistency & Precision.
Indeed, I was hard put to decide whether to list'm as a Corner or as a CenterFielder.
As a CenterFielder, Aiken's extraordinary Field Fision and Read & React Rapidity are perfect for the Position.
And as a Press Corner, Walt Aiken's Size, Length, Core Power, and Combat Skills, combined with tremendous Fluidity and absolutely outstanding Field Vision and Processing Speed could make him for a Formidable Foe, indeed.
I went with CornerBack, because while he displayed consistently remarkable Fluidity on Tape, his Ricochet & Verticity were competitive, but not exceptional, as was his Accleration and Range. Indeed, a couple of my Fellow Draft Ghouls, both'f whom are far more qualified than I to judge such things, described him as "stiff", though I didn't see that.
Mind you: I believe that Aiken's got exceptional Potential as a CenterFielder.
But he may have even greater Potential as a Press Corner.
Thanks, as always, to the extraordinary Work by the men of Draft BreakDown!!
