Some of you guys act like it can't be taught.


...or that just because he wasn't asked to do it that he can't do it
...or that this is some surprise that the Bengals didn't know until he made that statement like they never once looked at him play at Alabama

Lots of people acting like this is no big deal and then lots of people acting like this means he's a certain bust.

As usual, the truth is somewhere in between. No doubt about it, when you're hearing things like this out of your 1st round pick, it's a concern. It doesn't mean he's a certain bust, but it does mean that he's likely behind the curve in terms of adapting to the NFL.

A CB saying he doesn't know how to backpedal is akin to a WR saying he doesn't know what a route tree is. It's definitely a concern. However, to be fair, so were the play calls that Cam Newton was asked to call at Auburn. Admit it, everyone who saw that Jon Gruden QB Camp episode with Cam thought, "Uh oh!" when they went through that play call segment. We all know how that worked out.

Saying he never backpedaled in college and saying he doesn't know how to are completely different things.

"I never backpedaled," he told the Bengals' official site .


If true, it certainly wasn't a surprise to the Cincy staff. They had plenty of video of him. I think the media went 'Wow!' while the Bengals staff just said 'so what?'.
