Watching him play I get the feel of a mixture between peterson and mo claiborne. Not quite as electric as peterson but smooth like claiborne. He looks like a pure cover corner someone you can put man to man with a teams best wideout and not worry. That is what this team needs if he is able to do that then you are able to cheat help over to the other corners and not worry. With peterson, claiborne, and even simon we were able to do this.
You've hit it on the head right there in my book. I can't stand those who act like this kid is better than PP or that he is the next PP clone. The way I see it is that nobody can even compare this guy with PP7 in any way other than measurables.
I like the mix between Mo and PP when looking at his body type though. There is so much more to be seen when trying to describe him that measurables and speed is really all that we can site here.
I do love the fact that he is on the field and that his background is nearly parallel to PP's. Patrick was held back by Urban's petition to the NCAA and didn't get to campus til roughly the same time as RR. Of coarse we didn't need PP quite as much as we need RR. This alone should put RR squarely in the sights of reporters and fans alike. This kid is going to be great no doubting it.
another thing that really jumps out to me is that Mills is all over mentoring him on the mental aspects of his development. That is huge for RR and speaks volumes to me about Mills. Even if Mills gets taken out of the starting lineup by youngsters, he will graduate from LSU and be a well respected part of this program IMO.
