Crimson Tide ~ 6021/234
When evaluating MidFielders, these are the Attributes to which I pay most particular attention:
Power. Above all: Core Power. Upper body Strength is important, but lower body Strength, from the Knees to the Ribs, is absolutely crucial. It speaks to a Lineman's Capacity to project Power in the Running Game, and to reject Power in the Passing Game. I believe, as well, that those Players who invest the time and effort in developing superior Core Power are far likelier to enjoy sustained good Health and stay on the Field.
Agility. Lateral Velocity, Acceleration, and above all: Fluidity or Core Agility. Core Agility is even more essential to sustained good Health ~ and to sustained good FootBall ~ than Core Power. The ability to react with Serpentine smoothness is a tremendous asset in all Aspects of the Game, and certainly in the Hand to Hand Combat that characterizes Trench Warfare. All the Power in the World goes only so far if you're stiff and lumbering.
Mechanics. Combat Tactics. Launching Speed, Paw Power, and Technique.
Intangibles. Diagnostic Capacity, Processing Speed, and Motor. How effectively he masters Spatial Diagnostics & Angles, how rapidly he recognizes and implements Blocking Schemes based on changing Defensive Tactics, and of course: Drive. How badly he wants it. These are of course difficult things to assess, but it's crucial to at least try to.
Agility. Magnificent. An absolutely sensational combination of Fluidity, Acceleration, and Closing Speed.
Mechanics. Phenomenal. Explosive Paw Power, active, violent Hands, and tremendous at Navigating Traffic.
Intangibles. Awesome. Outstanding Field Vision and a relentless Motor. A naturally inspirational Leader.
He hits like a ton of Bricks and is still getting stronger.
He flies all over the Field with sensational Speed, Ricochets like a PinBall, and explodes into Contact.
He is incredibly smart, consistently Reads & Reacts to the roiling Tactical LandScape with Speed & Precision, Navigates Traffic with extraordinary skill, hits hard and fast, maintains Gap Discipline, and tackles crisply.
And his Pass Coverage skills??
Clint Mosley is blessed with phenomenal Verticity and can Flip Hips and run like a CornerBack.
A good CornerBack.
I'd say that his lofty Draft Status if fully warranted and then some.
Thanks, as always, to the extraordinary Work by the men of Draft BreakDown!!
