X-Factor for Jets at CB Dan Leberfeld

Maybe I’m in the minority, but I view Darrin Walls as a pretty solid cornerback.

Not a star, but solid.

And you could do a lot worse than having this guy as your #2 cornerback.

He’s smart and physical, and is good at jamming receivers at the line. He’s a nicely-built corner at 6-0, 190.

He also deals with pressure well, after playing at Notre Dame, and coming out of high school as a Top 100 recruit. He’s been in the spotlight since his teenage years.

When you talk to him, you feel like you are conversing with somebody older than 26. Dennis Thurman has described him as an “old soul.”

I’m not putting Walls in Canton, but after watching him closely the last few years in a lot of practices and games, I think he’s capable of being a #2 cornerback in the NFL.
