Who do you think he compares to? And do you think he can be a shutdown cb in this league?
IMO, his coverage skills are comparable to Derrelle Revis when he came out of Pitt...not saying he's going to be that type of pro CB, but I see a lot of similarities. He also has a little Nate Clements to his game (not afraid to come up and support the run).
Not sure any CB these days is a true "shut-down" corner, but Haden is as good a cover corner (abilities and technique-wise) as I've seen coming into the NFL in quite awhile.
