Golden Nuggets: Anyone else crushing on Tanner Muse

Who is your late round draft crush? I have noticed that I am not the only one crushing on Tanner Muse. A 6’-2” 227 pound safety that can run a 4.41 40, what is not to like? Perhaps you use him as a box safety or a hybrid? Perhaps you use him as a special teams ace while you turn him into a linebacker?

Muse had 74 tackles with six of them for a loss, two sacks, four interceptions and five pass breakups this year. Not bad for a slow guy that lacks fluidity.

Here is a couple of the negative remarks about him:

“Tight hips and plays too upright in space. Coverage is bulky and lacks fluidity”

Let’s compare that to the negative remarks about Richard Sherman coming out of college:

“However, he does not possess the natural coverage instincts, fluidity or burst to be considered a future starter.”

Perhaps they can compare notes?

I have a feeling we could do good things with Muse. Do you have a late round draft crush? If so, please share in the comments sections along with a brief explanation. P.S. I had to get #4 in the pic.
