6’4″ 218, 4.4 something. Let those numbers wash over you. That height. That speed. Aaron Rouse is the elite toolsy safety.
He’s got solid recognition skills. The speed also works in closing. He’s also got good ball skills. And in a division with Adrian Peterson, the Chicago Bears, and Verand Morency’s pace-changer in college, you need a man that can support the run. Rouse can do that.
His coverage is questionable, yes. But he’s a great pick. Great value. Great character. And he will start.
In short, he’s Ken Hamlin, only taller, and without the whole getting beat down in a bar thing. Ted hit here.
