This is exactly my point. There are CBs with size or heart or speed or something. Watching Rhodes for two years, I just think he has 'it'. I had several videos cached on him but erased all my favorites. Height in a corner or WR while not a must helps.
Of interest is a eval that Rhodes could run as low as 4.3
