I don't see anywhere that he's slow, I think he ran a 4.45 at his pro day.

I'm impressed with this kid man, he's sticky in coverage... maybe a little too handsy but I won't mind it as much because he doesn't shy away from contact.

Skrine is under contract for the next few years (expensive to cut as well) so I'm curious if he winds up being ST.

A back-up to Skrine with upside. Pretty fast kid, sticks to his man well and breaks on the ball well. His highlights look very nice.

Notes from camp:

- working as nickel corner
- had consecutive pass breakups in the end zone
- Nagy describes him as "twitchy, scrappy, confident"
- looking forward to true test when pads come on

I'm rooting for this kid to replace Callahan sooner rather than later. Make Buster Skrine a depth piece.

Duke Shelley has signed, and with that, the 2019 Bears draft class is locked up.

You know Duke kind of reminds me of Demontre Hurst.

Good read. It make take a year to unseat Skrine, but this kid just has a nose for the ball.
