I haven't seen anything to suggest Randall is sheepish about tackling, which is why I think he should be a better tackler than TW. However, poor tackling
Don't tempt fate.
Ability to play the ball in the air is far and away the trait you choose to covet for any DB in the modern NFL. Tackling is not something that would be
I just fell victim to the Patler confusion factor (TM) on their names! I think this is a much more reasonable analysis than where the conversation started.
Williams was an excellent cover corner - so you can live with his sheepish tackling. The jury is very much out on Randall and his coverage skills - he's
Rollins isn't a terrible tackler - Randall is
As for CB traits - no, tackling is not #1 on my list, coverage ability is; but Randall played
Shields would shy away from tackling a stack of pillows. Are there really very many CBs starting in the NFL who most would consider strong tacklers? I

I would be an upgrade over the chase and drag brothers.
This begs the question. Do you think your rate would be higher than .500?
Oh, I know the likelihood of them getting it right is not that high.
Also, nobody said he was physical or that he didn't miss tackles,
I'm hoping Jake Ryan will be a major upgrade over Hawk and B. Jones inside to shore up the middle of that defense.
I like Hayward but he has a history of not staying healthy and this was probably why we drafted those 2 DBs in the first 2 rounds after Tramon Williams

That said we seem to have one hell of a secondary
They didn't need hard evidence to declare Brady 'more likely than not' was compliant in deflating those balls but IMO the main reason why Goodell slammed
