Seahawks All-Time Fantasy Draft (53)

With the 53rd overall pick in the first ever Seahawks All-Time Fantasy Draft, the Skid Row Sliders select...

Kelly Jennings, Miami

via Seattle PI

I like cover corners. It’s a weakness of mine. Jennings is short, not a great tackler and hasn’t shown much in the way of ball skills, in college or in the pros, but as second year corners go, he’s a hell of a cover guy. Jennings was leapt over, blocked out, but I never recall him getting burned. Jennings is definitely more of a man over corner, more likely to tip away a pass than slip in for the pick, but his speed, agility and precocious cover skills keeps him close to his receiver. He never really lets his man get open. In that way, he has a direct impact on Seattle’s pass rush. That second of hesitation, the read of "covered" rather than "open" buys Seattle’s rush an extra second, split-second, to close in. On a Sliders squad with a good mix of speed, power and hustle pass rushers, a little extra time should be just enough.
