    Well, there is this:

    “It’s a little bit harder in these OTAs to gauge some of the defensive backs because of the style of play we want to play here. We want to be closer to the line of scrimmage and really get our hands on people,” head coach Leslie Frazier said. “This part of the offseason program you’re limited in being able to be aggressive at the line of scrimmage, but we see enough of the athletic ability and the size – the size definitely shows up – and the speed. You can see that and the change of direction that he has so we know with those long arms he’s going to be able to go out and do what we drafted him to do and that’s go out and play press coverage. We’ll learn more when he get into training camp and get pads on.”

    not trying to take anything away from Winny, but he has lost a step in his coverage ability over the past couple of years. Still he's pretty solid against the run and always has been one of the best run defending backs in the nfl. I have more than one vision, burnt in my brain, of some really sick plays he's made in the past against the run. Would have enjoyed to see him retire a Viking for sure, but thats not the norm these days in the nfl, sad but true.
    As for Rhodes, I watched him play in college and his highlights will show you the same, big and fast and loves to hit...i'll be one happy fan if he can be a taller version of Winny . Rhodes has alot of very very good potential and i think we will all be saying his name more in the years to come...

    I hope that's the case. It would be a shame to lose what Winfield provided against the run all these years as well.

    Who needs run defense? Haven't you heard it's a passing league now?

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    No they didn't.

    They ran that antiquated bend but don't break scheme because that's what they chose to run & they ran it a long time before Winfield ever slowed down.

    Pretty much every team in the NFL.
