Tex, I heard a podcast where they were saying that Stingley started and played great as a freshman in college and that pretty much anyone who does that is essentially guaranteed a high draft slot regardless of the rest of their college career.The bad news on Stingly is he has not played one down of football since 2019 which justifies using the #3 pick to draft him.
Stingley seems a natural talent who has stepped up a level without issue in the past. Let’s hope he is healthy.
We’ve seen the Carolina GM stating teams were clambering to trade up for him not far behind us, and he fits Lovie’s scheme while Sauce doesn’t.
Maybe we could say we wanted to build through the trenches and left some great DL/EDGE on the board, but you need good cornerback play and Stingley has a great chance to provide that.
