It’s always debateable what you can get from watching Preseason games in the NFL. But, one good thing that can be taken away from the Green Bay Packers opener against the Patriots is the play of rookie cornerback Quinton Rollins.
Rollins was selected by the Packers in the second round of last April’s draft out of Miami of Ohio, and tonight he showed a glimpse of why.
In the first half of action against the Patriots, the former MAC Defensive Player of the Year showed his tremendous ball skills with a pair of first-half pass defenses.
The cornerback position was one of the keys to watch coming into this game and this season with the free agent departures of Tramon Williams and Davon House, and Rollins is giving Green Bay a reason to believe he can contribute right away for snaps in the secondary.
Rollins has a way to go to get past Casey Hawyard and Micah Hyde for snaps, but he is right there with first-rounder Damarious Randall and thus far, the returns in both players are turning out to be nothing but positive.
