Recommended Posts

Decent snippet on who Kevon Seymour is from a Bills analyst perspective. Enjoy:

Quote

If there was one corner whom I thought might struggle in Sean McDermott’s defense, it was Seymour. He is purely a mirror, man cover corner. He’s a defender who loves to use his speed and athleticism to get into the hip pocket of the receiver opposite him. Be that as it may, he’s a damn good cover guy because he can turn and run with anyone.

As far as man technique, he has that down pat; from all reports out of Carolina, the Panthers want to play more man coverage this season than in years past.

In 95 run snaps last season, Seymour registered 3 tackles and a 1.1 run tackle rating which was tied for 103rd overall. He did excel in coverage in the 177 passing snaps that he played, only allowing 12 receptions on 22 targets.

That breaks down to a reception every 14.8 coverage snaps, tied for 8th overall.

 

Only issue is how he isn't a zone corner, lacking the physicality and length for the job. He's a bad scheme fit for McDermott. However, the Panthers appear to be switching to more man under Wilks, where we could see Seymour come in for. He locks down receivers pretty well.

Good depth, and a good add for packages. Will be interesting to see how the Panthers develop and use him.

So this one thing I hate about the discussion. From my understanding, McDermott's base defense runs cover three zone. A zone corner in that system is responsible for the deep outside third and aligns in either a press-bail or off coverage. In many ways, the responsibilities are more similar to cover one or zero with man coverage than they are to a traditional zone look out a Cover 2. 

Considering in this defense the corner is going to have to turn and run just like he would in a traditional man scheme, I don't see why there would be a fit problem. We aren't asking him to sit in a zone and read defenses.

Everything I have read says this guy is a Zone corner.  I'm not sure what you've been reading.

 

Everything you read?  You literally just responded to an article citing the exact opposite...or let me guess, you didn't even read it?

Darrelle Revis, Assante Samuel, Nnamdi Ashomugah and others have suffered poor seasons or outright downfalls by going to teams with poor scheme fits for their talents.

Better hope our scheme under Wilks is different enough from McDermott to work for this guy.

If Wilks keeps up pattern reading zone and man schemes for him, then he's a great pickup. I doubt he's the starter, but he'd be phenomenal depth and probably good in certain packages.

Or better yet, let's hope we don't even need  Seymour to play anytime soon.

I don't see him being a starter.

I know that'll disappoint some.

Worley's the better corner overall. Still believe he'll impress this season, and his preseason performance was greatly exaggerated. 

His rookie season told me all I needed to know in my confidence towards him.

Seymour is good depth and great for certain packages, but don't expect him to push Worley anytime soon.

Still don't understand all the Worley hate TBH

They dont understand football, Worley is a solid #2 who needs occasional safety help on deep routes.

I have read this article and googled others.  They all say he's a zone corner.  This is the first i've read/saw he wasn't.  just saying.
