MOBILE, Ala. — It’s often the late arrivals who seem to make an impact during Senior Bowl week, and this year is no different. On the offensive side of the ball, San Diego State WR Vincent Brown continues to shine, but defensively, Stanford CB Richard Sherman, a recent addition, is also making his mark.
Sherman has an outstanding back pedal and could excel as a zone corner. Once he sticks his foot in the ground and closes, he gets to the ball almost immediately.
He was so quick in his break one time, that he actually forced a quarterback to come off his first read — not all that common in a Senior Bowl practice, where the conditions benefit the offense.
Sherman is one of the main prospects on the North team who has jumped out at me as I watch the defensive backs practice, and he deserves some more attention moving forward.
