After appearing in 64 games with 15 starts for the Buffalo Bills (he racked up 168 tackles, 28 pass breakups, and three picks during that time), Nickell Robey-Coleman really made a name for himself in Los Angeles with the Rams. If all that you know about this “sultan of the slot” is he’s the guy that didn’t get flagged in that NFC Championship Game, then, you’re missing the point.
By this time next season, don’t be surprised if we’re talking the extension “NRC” was granted in the offseason and how his addition in 2020’s offseason was one of the surprising steals that helped turn Philly’s secondary around.
Linebacker Nathan Gerry is one of those saving graces that you can find among the Joe Douglas, Doug Pederson, and Howie Roseman’s drafts. Sure, Howie Roseman seemingly struggles with evaluating skill players and even more clueless about what he should be looking for in a wide receiver, but occasionally, he nails things.
Nathan Gerry is one of those examples of when those guys got things right. What’s crazy is they won with a guy that plays a position they normally don’t put a ton of stock in.
Gerry was taken 184th-overall, during the fifth round of 2017’s draft. Since then, he’s worked his way up from a project linebacker who converted from safety to one of the key contributors on defense. 2020 is a contract season for the “White Snake, so expect him to ball out.
