Tharold Simon doing well in Seahawks mini-camp

LINK

quote:

Tharold Simon's second day at work ended with the opposing wide receiver face down out-of-bounds.

It was the final play of Saturday's practice, evidence the 6-foot-2 Simon didn't just look like someone who fit the Seahawks' blueprint for an outside cornerback, but he played like one, too.

LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was selected in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Seahawks last month. (AP) "He has real good size," said Chris Harper, the wide receiver Seattle drafted out of Kansas State. "He's a real physical player ... He plays big."

Now take a moment to consider where that's coming from. Harper is a wide receiver who weighs 230 pounds. He was the player Seattle chose a round before picking Simon, and Harper isn't anyone to be taken lightly. And while Simon weighed in at 202 during this week's rookie minicamp, his play proved the accuracy of the old adage about the size of the dog in the fight not being nearly so important as the size of the fight in the dog. "He's strong," Harper said of Simon. "He got me one time today. He's long. He's real long. You usually don't see corners that are 6-2."

There was the moment Harper mentioned when Simon jammed a receiver that outweighed him by 30 pounds, and on the final play of Saturday's workout, he knocked Gerald Kemp off his feet and onto his stomach at the edge of the playing field.


DBU keeping on the tradition.

you gotta take rookie reports with a grain of salt sometimes, they pump them up to get the veterans going. not saying he won't do good...

I will take LSU guys coming out of college to be better prepared to handle the physicality, strength, and overall game speed against any school in the nation.
Even more so with CC.

He made it out of College just in time. I'm glad he is in a position to succeed. Best of luck to him and all of our former Tigers.
