Congrats on being selected first team CB in both the media and coaches pick for All-Big Ten...oh and winning the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year Award.
Micah didnt have the great numbers the some db's will have and I'm glad the coaches and media still recognized what he accomplished this year. Iowa's db's had to stay in coverage forever this season with Iowa's lack of a pass rush. He didn't have a ton of numbers, because frankly, like we saw with Spievey a couple years ago, QB's didn't really throw at him because he's so good in coverage. He baits Qb's to try an throw behind him in the cover 2 zone sideline gap better than almost any DB I've seen. I think he goes in the first 3 rounds. He is physical, isn't afraid to hit, has speed to spare(we had to see it a couple times this year when he had to chase down people streaking for the endzone) and he has good size. What always hurts Iowa db's, is that we don't see how good they are in man coverage. If he performs well in man at a senior bowl type game, he will really be able to improve his stock.
Congrats to Micah!
Yeah I will miss him for sure. I was hoping he could play CB at the next level. But looks like most places have him listed at FS. I'm sure he can be successful at the next level wherever he plays. I guess that's more of his natural position anyways?
The only thing that can really keep him from being a top notch CB is how his hips translate to the next level. Hopefully they don't see it as being too stiff. Honestly, the physicality is there, the speed is there...he did chase down Venric Marks, a 4.4/40 kid, from behind without an angle, and the technique is there.
Definitely a great honor for Hyde, and something he should be very proud of.
