Nnamdi Asomugha

Oakland Raiders




Strength: Nnamdi Asomugha has a name that the other team can't comprehend while doing other tasks. Nnamdi Asomugha is ideal size for a CB, which is rare. Nnamdi Asomugha has the two skills every CB needs: Agility and Speed.
Weakness: Nnamdi Asomugha got picked apart a few times. Nnamdi Asomugha may be better on deep pass coverage than short passes, which doesn't bode well with all the west coast offenses running around the NFC, but may be ok in the AFC. Nnamdi Asomugha's technical skills are very raw.
Development: Nnamdi Asomugha gives Oakland a guy who can cover big receivers, but without giving up team speed. He should battle for the #2 CB spot this year and next. If that doesn't work out, Nnamdi Asomugha could find himself learning the safety position as his size would make him suitable for the switch. Rod Woodson would make an ideal tutor on how to be a big blanket corner or how to switch from corner to safety, eh?
Fantasy Football Rating: He's big, he's fast, and each QB may have a hay-day with him. A good reason to boost his rating in individual defensive player leagues and lower Oakland's defense in team defense leagues. Don't be surprised if he has a lot of tackles and INT chances.
Typecast Outlook Opinion: 50% chance of success. 20% chance of Pro Bowl.
