2010 Cincinnati Bengals Preview- Secondary

Posted By Adrian Fedkiw On Aug 17 2010 @ 7:03 pm In Cincinnati Bengals | No Comments

Cincinnati possesses one of the more underrated pair of corners in the NFL, let alone one of the best in Leon Hall and Johnathan Joseph.  There’s only 1, possibly 2 pairs that I would take ahead of them; Revis and Cromartie from New York, and Newman or Jenkins from Dallas. 

LCB- Leon Hall- 71 tck  6 int  24 p def  2 ff

Hall is a complete corner with  no major flaws in his game.  He’s smart and instinctive, has quick closing speed on the ball and is strong in run support.  He may very well be the most underrated cornerback in football.

(Leon Hall)

RCB- Johnathan Joseph- 69 tck  6 int  20 p def  1 ff

Joseph emerged last season opposite Hall.  His game is similar to Hall’s as he too doesn’t have many major flaws.  He plays with excellent athleticism, can play zone or man and improved his hands as his interception numbers suggest.

CB- Morgan Trent- 28 tck  4 p def  1 sck

Trent has good size and speed and improved as the season went along last year as a rookie.

CB- Brandon Ghee- ROOKIE

Ghee is a raw rookie taken in the 3rd round.  He has good athleticism, but needs to improve his ball skills.

FS- Chris Crocker- 51 tck  2 int  9 p def  1 ff

Crocker is versatile.  He can lineup as a nickel corner and can play the run.

SS- Roy Williams- 28 tck  2 p def

Williams is great against the run, but lacks range against the pass.

S- Chinedum Ndukwe- 89 tck  1 int  5 p def  2 sck

Between Williams and Ndukwe, Ndukwe is the better overall football player, but Williams fits the system.

GRADE- 8.5
