Re: Scouts Inc.'s Matt Williamson concerned about free safety
Reshad Jones isn't a free safety. He's Bell's backup and future replacement. Clemons is the future for free safety. I'm not concerned about that position. It's the NT and OLB that I'm concerned about...but only because I don't know what they can do.
Beat me to it.
I'm trying to find his combine stats, but I remember seeing them a while ago and he had the worst shuttle times out of all safeties. That doesn't exactly scream center fielder to me. Plus, his full stride speed is worse than Wilson's...he'll get burned down field.
Jones is an in-the-box type of safety who can play some coverages with YB in tight situations (the redzone), as he can be that type of enforcer to control the middle of the field. But, he's not an every down FS.
I like Clemons. He's got speed, he's fearless, very solid tackler, good ball skills. I think he fits well out in straight away center and allows YB to play his more natural position and be that extra LB that we may need on first and 2nd down.
