Yes, this kid has the tools to be a decent contributor this season. Being a Syracuse guy, I can’t wait to see Garrett Williams back out on the field. Not sure how much he’ll contribute right out of the gate, but the kid is a playmaker.Watching the R&W Practice this weekend Kei'Trel Clark was running with the 1st team defense. I was keying on Michael Wilson a bunch during the practice and Clark was lined up against him on several occasions where the ball went to Wilson.
Wilson won the first battle with a quick catch for 8 yards. Clark responded with great coverage on a deep corner route and knocked the ball away from Wilson. Later in the drive Michael Wilson beat clark on a great out route for a TD. Wilson also had a couple of other catches but I can't remember who was covering him.
From what I can tell Clark is very confident. He wasn't afraid to get physical with a bigger stronger WR like Michael Wilson. He looks fast out there and has good recovery speed. In the end Michael Wilson won the battle. However I think Clark can develop into a solid CB but he will take his lumps early in his career if he is forced into starting as a rookie.
3 receptions for 23 yards or 5.75 yards per attempt. Tiny sample size on short passes. We definitely need more data.Right? I mean, good on him for not getting shook when facing up with a TE, but he was targeted 4 times and allowed a 75% completion percentage. He wasn't targeted, and Sam Howell is probably a scrub. Need more data on this guy.
The story here is not "targeted 4 times and allowed a 75% completion percentage"Right?

No he didn't "keep the play in front of him".... he kept the receivers covered.He played decently. He kept the play in front of him, which is a solid tactic for a rookie CB.
right??No he didn't "keep the play in front of him".... he kept the receivers covered.
How do people on this forum value "non-targets"???
DBs in highschool, that are good, will get less than 30 targets across their senior year. Some people here forget that the entire point in a DB is to cover the guy and not get targeted
Larry Wilson was a 7th round pick way back in 1960. He's no doubt the best late round pick in Cardinal history.Reggie Wells still comfortably holding on to the title of "best ARZ Cardinals 6th round draft pick ever".
But Clark is moving up on #2 and #3 Andre Ellington and Justin Bethel.
Even if KT becomes better than Murphy, Murphy is still better than Wilson. The real addition by subtraction is Simmons.Curious how his stats end up comparing to Byron Murphy throughout the year. Right now KT has five more tackles and one more passes defended.
The sideline mojo alone makes you wonder if we have addition by subtraction with some dudes being gone.
