Tim is a pure CB that uses excellent techniques along
with his speed and quickness to be one of the best CBís in
this draft. He is fearless when he tackles and plays with
great pride. He loves a challenge and if he doesnít find
one on the field, he will hunt one out during a game. He
shows good hands to make the interception. If you need a
cover corner, then you need Tim -- itís just that simple.
Tim is vertically challenged for his position and has some
off field maturity issues that need to be researched
further. He looks like he might be a high maintenance type of guy.
Talent Board Round 2
Pound for pound, Tim is one of the best pure CBís in this
draft. There are two factors that aren't in Timís favor
for this draft in comparison to other drafts. 1) He is
coming out when there are a lot of good, tall CBís in a
draft. 2) Maturity issues off the field in a year that the
NFL just got finished dealing with Terrell Owens (the T.O.
factor). In fact, a lot of very talented players in this
program have had some off field issues that will affect
their draft rankings. Both CBís -- Minter and Jennings
this to deal with for the upcoming draft. Both players are
complete CBís on the field; however, both have a lot to
answer for in regards to off field issues. All you have to do is a
search of their names; you'll see what I'm talking about and can
form your own opinions. Tim is a needed commodity in the NFL
today. He is the only CB in this draft that can cover a
Steve Smith or a Santana Moss. Not only can he cover them --
he can make a mistake, still catch up to them and tackle
them. He is a flashy kid; in fact, I think you could say that
if your team drafts him, you have just drafted the Steve Smith
of your defense. Both players have the same type of mental
make up to their games -- they just play on different sides
of the ball.
