I just rewatched the AL game the other night and kept noticing Rucker. Always making plays. He gave up a long pass but was in great position, just a perfect pass and catch. He was also in good position on the end zone flag where he was pulled down. If he improves he could start next year imoDeShawn Rucker is an “actual” CB. He certainly has the speed, and has decent hips to play the position.
He wasn’t available at the start of this season, and was out again late in the season, including vs USCe.
I wouldn’t call him a solid CB now. But, he’s young, and will hopefully develop into one here.
