Short answer: yes. People also complain that Stingley gets beat alot but I'll take that any day if it can lead to getting 5ints for a season. But yeah, Blades is athletic enough, his main problem is footwork/balance. He's always falling during plays.Our DBs have a hard time staying in phase and preventing separation. You want them to look for the ball when they can't even cover with their eyes on the receiver?
Only the best corners can cover and have the skills and confidence to find the football. Blades can cover with his length and technique but isn't athletic enough to also play the ball.
600 yards given up and 5 tds? People hype who they want to hype up and that’s the truthAgain looking at that laundry list of guys he went against...there is probably 2 nfl wrs on that list and they all got yards on him.
He's good...good as hell for a freshman...but yall need to stop hyping up ninjas to a level they arent. He will get the hype from now on ..follows from recruiting...and now the fact that he is at LSU which is known for the dbs. Maybe its because i watched 3 games where he gave up tds i dont know?. I'm impressed as hell..but thinking he is some out of this world prospect....NO. I mean i am a fan of um and seen our dbs when we were rolling.
That is athleticism. Blades doesn't have the body control and flexibility to cover and play the ball.Short answer: yes.

EXACTLY. Those were 2 games i watched.....and the 2 best teams with wrs he faced and they shredded him. Kid will be a beast for 2 more years...but he definately aint the best cb in the countryProbably the only db to give up 200 yards plus in a game too this season. I cant Get that performance vs bama and they way uf attacked him with van Jefferson coming out of the 1st half out of my head. He was beat some in other games too but he’s good no doubt , but some going overboard with the hype imo
You got to do something against the real good talent to be the best. The beat wrs he played against he gave up damn near 200+to both.It ain't even close, the best CB in the nation...
Especially considering how high his upside is, guaranteed 1st round draft pick in 2 years.
