San Diego Chargers CB Johnny Patrick Scouting Report

Here is the scouting report from NFL.com on the San Diego Chargers newest acquisition Johnny Patrick from NFL.com:

STRENGTHS

Patrick has good size and a muscular build. Plays with balance and shows a smooth back pedal. Delivers an effective press at the line and can turn and run with receivers. Reads the QB’s eyes in zone coverage, gets into passing lanes, and has the body control and soft hands to make picks.

WEAKNESSES

Does not have elite recovery speed and lacks the hip fluidity to mirror in man coverage. Plays too aggressively at times and gets burned by play action and double moves. Can get overwhelmed by bigger receivers in jump ball situations. Gets down on himself and play suffers after mistakes. Inconsistent tackler.

 
We needed to add some corners onto the roster. Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer are both free agents and we need competition at the position. Shareece Wright and Marcus Gilchrist will be seeing a lot more action and there is always room for more help in the secondary. We are in the same division as Peyton Manning, pass defense is a priority.
