Jimmy Moreland will be BETTER than Kendall Sheffield

I think both could be special.  Sheffield is faster, more technical while Moreland plays the ball at an elite level.  Sure wish you could combine the two

 

But neither has done squat, yet.  So let’s let them earn a starting spot first.

To me Sheffield could be out of the league in a few years but he could also be Patrick Peterson

Moreland has more staying power. Could be a Morris Claiborne. Nothing popular but definitely a solid corner. Possibly even a Josh Norman.

He is a great risk/reward pick in the 4th.  I know KOG loves his versatility so we shall see.  Hopefully both Sheff & Moreland have 10+ year careers

Wouldn't surprise me. Sheffield was the only real head scratcher this draft for me. I hope Sheffield is a beast. 

If he can improve once the ball is in the air, watch out.  Could look back in 4 years and wonder how a 4.2 guy with his skillset lasted until the 4th

I think....as othes have said.....that free safety may be his best position. Quinn says he will play boundary corner if I remember correctly. I'm not confident but maybe he can be coached up. I hope that's the case. I think he lasted that long because his ball skills aren't as good as his physical traits.

I don’t disagree. He will likely have a Rico career trajectory.  Start in the slot.  Once you can play effectively in the slot, you can pretty much play any position in the secondary

“As offenses evolved and started moving their top receivers and athletic tight ends in the slot to create mismatches, defenses responded by turning the slot corner into a roving weapon, moving him around the field like a queen on a chessboard. The modern slot corner may be asked to guard a shifty Julian Edelman or a monstrous Rob Gronkowski. He may contribute in the run game. Or blitz the quarterback. On any given play, he may have to act as a pass-rusher, a linebacker or a shutdown corner.”

So it’s the toughest spot in the secondary IMO and a great place to learn multiple positions

I'm glad Poole is gone. Excited to see Kazee in the slot.

Regardless of where he plays, we need him to be a contributor in the new secondary.

I liked Poole just because the value.  But Kazee could legit be in the Pro Bowl this year.  

If Kazee keeps getting int's like he did and covers as well as I think he can then he could turn into an All Pro slot corner.

Kazee is the real world version of what people are hoping Jimmy Moreland will be for the Redskins.

Kazee is way bigger so can be used in the box. Moreland can’t.  I think he moves to the outside in a year or two and plays like Grimes as a comp

I'd take Sheffield right now... I think he has less bust factor...I really believe he could be and might be the best player for the pick in our Draft this year.
