What do you like about your new corner CB Dontae Johnson?
"6-2, 200 pounds. Runs 4.44, verified. Has played safety. Has played corner. Versatility. Intelligence. Very smart football player and an A-plus-plus character guy
So he'll have an opportunity to compete for other positions aside from corner?
"Right now, we're going to lock him in and put him at corner
and let him go to work. Once again, with all these young guys, the more focused you can get them in one area, at least early on, the better chance they have of developing. So, you want to give them the best chance that you can for them to be successful and the best thing for him is to put him out there at corner and let him go to work."
How much do any of these guys play press in college, at NC State for example?
, and quite honestly, that's one of the problems when you're watching receivers. You don't see them get pressed. So when people say, 'Well how's he going to do against press?' You tell me. We did one guy that, in fact we did all of the guys that we had ranked at a certain level, all the receivers, had our guys go through and cut up all of the plays that they went against press, even if they weren't throwing the ball on that down, just to see how they got off of press. And the most we saw one guy had 20 snaps against press coverage. A lot of them were down in the single digits, seven, eight, nine snaps in all the film we had on them. So, it's hard to say."
