That guy can really do it all, apparently! 

 

Yep, I designed him with a LB frame, but mostly CB attributes (ie, agility over strength) so he can drop into coverage in nickle and dime packages. Although @GoodLeftUndone might not want to put me in behind the safeties, as they're really good, and even "Play mostly starters" gives the backups considerable playing time. D'Attoria is far worse than the safeties, so we might want them to play the whole game. IDK though.

True. You're really just back there for coverage plays when we need more than 4 secondary players

Realized I never updated this; but this is what we're currently running! *Red indicates the most recent changes

As D'Attoria gets better, maybe he can ease into the S roles as well.
