Robert Sands, Safety, WVU

Robert Sands vs. Pitt ('09) (via AloAloysius)

 

6-5, 220, 4.57 forty

I love this guy.  He's got a big frame, he's athletic, and he's as nasty a mofo there is.  He's got the speed and athleticism to play the deep middle; and he's got the size and aggression to play in the box.  He can match up easily with TEs and big WRs, and won't be easily outjumped/high-pointed on balls that are up in the air.  He's very active and loves to fly around and stick his nose into everything.   And he would be a great presence when used in the blitz game.

This guy doesn't only grade well respective to other safeties in the class, but he's also a fantastic fit for the Jets defense in particular.  He can play either SS or FS, and he would make a heck of a tandem if teamed up with Brodney Pool.  Both are athletic and aggressive.  And both have the ability to play either safety position.  It would give Rex a lot of versatility, allowing him to disguise blitzes and coverages with equal ease.  Rex could really play around with Sands and Pool in pre-snap and post-snap looks; having them switch sides and moving into and out of the box.   He could use one to fake a blitz on one side, and then back him off and bring the other one instead.  And both cover a lot of ground and like to stick their noses in on plays. 

Not sure when he'll be selected, but if we do pick him there's plenty to be excited about.
