A final look at Dre Kirkpatrick

I was kind of hoping for him too. Didn't think it would happen though. Maybe he's high.

Norman will make a bigger impact quicker than Kirk

Norman in the 5th, if he becomes a starting Corner will be one of the best draft picks. A steal.

This is why I told people Gilmore would go before Dre.

All those calling him more NFL ready just didn't watch college football.

i was at a clinic and Saban explained there base coverage. no off man at all.like Dre said it was press man or palms which is a cover 2/ cover 4 hybrid.he backpedaled using the to zones but they were not that detailed.

Isn't backpedaling a big drill they do at the combine for DBs and LBs? Ha! How could they not have seen this through the whole draft process? All the talk about the Bengals having the best draft...

Well he either hasn't backpedaled, or lacks the common sense to even know what backpedaling is.

You don't want either in an NFL corner.

That's what I'm saying. I thought Back pedaling is one of the fundamental moves you learn as a DB, more specifically as a Corner. I don't understand how he doesn't know how to do this. He should be moved to safety to be honest then.

Well I do remember reading in his scouting report that he may be better suited to play safety, but damn even safeties have to backpedal, although not as often as CB.

i thought backpedaling just makes sense... like does he really try to run with the receiver their ENTIRE route? u backpedal in anticipation then break...
