Id like your guys opinion. The Honey Badger received alot of support when he performed poorly on the bench at the combine. Deion Sanders even went to twitter saying a CBs only measurement of significance was the 40. I think a cb upper body strength is relevant. Primetime sucked in run support. Plus these receivers today are huge. Mathieu vs A. Boldin would be a disaster for the Honey Badger. Even S. Wiggins agreed that a corner only needs to be fast n have good cover skills. But a complete DB should be able to slow a receiver down at the los in bump and be useful against the run? What do u guys think?
I don't care what anyone says. You talk about S&C and all that - my son can bench press 225 pounds more than 4 times easily and he is 17 and plays high school ball - at 6'1 215 pounds. Of cousre he has been out of school for a while so maybe not working out.
My simple answer is you can't teach size
The league is loaded with great athletes
If one team has a bigger great athlete then that team has an advantage
Strength is a huge factor. When you are trying to press a receiver on the line a bigger player will be more effective than honey badger
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
Exactly. The SEC is a great proving ground for the NFL but his upper body strength or lack thereof against the worlds best? He better make a living returning kick offs n punts. Im hoping Wiggins realize the importance of S&C which Im sure Coach T will.

Definitely shows he doesn't take offseason conditioning seriously. Deion was a better tackler than he credits for. I wouldn't want my best cover guy and star special teams player trying to blow up 240 lb rb's anyway. He could get the job done when needed. He's the best cornerback to ever play the game. Period.
Revis, the unquestioned #1 corner in the game, is a perfect example of speed not strength. He doesn't have freakish size.

Clean n jerk would be a better indication of overall strength.
I'll take prime times word. people made a big deal about about Kevin durrant and the fact that he couldn't bench 225 as well. how's that working out. football is a game of leverage and leg strength plays a big part of that. just because you can't bench press something doesn't make you weak. football strength is totally different then weight room strength. i would rather have a guy that could cover step for step then someone that could bump you then get burnt.
Cough!!!! Champ Bailey
I played with one who was strong as an ox and did very little weight lifting...but he was country strong....but that was back when you worked on a farm...
