Ok, all you non believers in Walt. And how you criticized him through some rough weeks. An apology is in order. Especially off this great playoff run he made. i still contend that Walt was on the right side and is still one of the top handicappers in the business. I don't think in general the professional handicappers bettors and bookies did that well this year. I strongly believe if you stick with Walts picks, big profits will ensue. I've been involved with this long enough to know that, right or wrong, his picks through the NFL season are borderline brilliant. His insight has always been exceptional and he has never backed down to rediculous critism. Take in fact that he was on Denver when everybody and there mother and grandmother and great grandmother was on Carolina. Now that is balls. I've been on this website for 7 years and I've have averaged a good to great profit. You are all idiots if you feel that this guy isn't as good as it comes. Walt has made me some serious cash. You dummies who resist his great analysis are losers. I am not, thanks to Walt.
Strengths: Nice height being listed at 6 feet tall ... Very solid timed speed ... Receivers simply have a tough time getting away from him because he is a master at press man coverage ... Great athleticism and recovery speed ... Outstanding ball skills ... Reliable wrap-up tackler who gets the job done ... Smooth backpedal with fluid hips ... Seems to have a knack for forcing and recovering fumbles ... Quick break on the ball.
Weaknesses: Needs to add on about 12-15 pounds of bulk to be able to get physical at the jam in the NFL ... Less impressive player in zone coverage ... Needs to improve versus the run; do a better job of taking on a block ... Hand use must be improved at the line of scrimmage.
Summary: Teams that run press man coverage will really like his skill set, and Tampa-2 bases will see him as an awkward fit ... Makes a lot of big plays at crucial points in big games, and this is what separates good corners from great corners.
Player Comparison: Leigh Bodden. Bodden is one of the best press man corners in the NFL with outstanding ball skills. Lindley has a similar frame as well.
