Thats a really good question. I believe he can cover because of his speed and his fluid hips. Unfortunately he never did it in college so that has yet to be seen. This will be his biggest challenge adjusting and could keep him off the field on third down in the beginning. I think long term heíll give offenses fits on third down because he can drop back or blitz. I donít know if heíll be able to play 3 downs at the onset of his career. If he canít, Kubiak will get great production out of him on special teams.
