Re: Darius Butler will be a STUD
Two-thirds of the earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by Darius Butler.
I know that's an oldie, but I like it.
Did you know that Butler's uncle is Gene Atkins? And of course his cousin is Willis McGahee. The kid's got bloodlines too. He also sounds like he really understands defensive schemes to go along with his athletic talents.
But what will make Butler at the next level is his skills in the defensive backfield, and one attribute he brings is a versatility between man-in-man and zone coverages. " I can play zone effectively, but if I had to choose one, I would choose man-to-man," he said, when asked what he preferred. "We played a lot of Quarters coverage [where the defense splits the deep coverage into fourths]. We played man, but I would say it was a softer man. We would have underneath help, and some different inside help. Mostly Quarters and some Cover-2. We'd mix it up; man off, safety in the box, corner plays a level and the safety plays a half, like Cover-2. We played it a variety of different ways."
I bet if Butler said that to Maualuga, the guy would have a cranial meltdown!

VERY COOL stuff here. Did you know that Deion Sanders had a hand in training Butler? Butler was one of the students at Prime U.
