Daxton Hill and Trent McDuffie are the Eagles’ best options past Sauce and Stingley.
It’s almost disrespectful to see how often Daxton Hill has been ignored. He’s six-foot-tall and 192 pounds. He ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash. He can line up and cover outside and slot receivers. That versatility will serve him well at the professional level.
Write his name down if you haven’t already. Upon further review, we’re ready to place him in the top five of the best cornerbacks available. Yes, we’re ranking him ahead of Booth.
If the Washington Huskies ever find a way to recruit linebackers, offensive linemen, running backs, and wide receivers with the same mastery that they have for finding cornerbacks, this program might become the Alabama of the Pac-12. Add Trent McDuffie to a list of brilliant defensive backs that have come out of the Pacific-Northwest.
Now, we know what some of you Eagles fans are thinking. Sidney Jones has turned you off of Washington cornerbacks entirely, but saying you don’t want McDuffie because he and Jones share the same stomping grounds would be like saying the Eagles should never take another Alabama star because Freddie Milons didn’t work out.
Trust us on this one. Trent McDuffie is the real deal.
