Eric Williams of The News Tribune was full of information on several NFL prospects and their potential fits with the Seahawks when he joined Bob Stelton and Jason Stiles from the scouting combine on Monday.
One of them was Jordan Poyer, a consensus All-American defensive back from Oregon State whom Williams thinks could make an immediate impact as a nickelback. Among the reasons Poyer might appeal to the Seahawks, Williams thinks, is his versatility; he played safety at Oregon State before moving to cornerback, and he sometimes moved inside to cover slot receivers.
Poyer finished with seven interceptions last season, tied for second-most in the nation.
Williams said Poyer has drawn comparisons to Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan because of the aggressive and fiery nature they share.
“A lot of the receivers that I talked to, when they talked about the guy that was the toughest guy to go against, Poyer was a name that was mentioned a lot,” Williams said.
The video below features Stiles, a college football analyst for ROOT SPORTS, and Stelton discussing Poyer and some other names Williams mentioned.
