Good : He's young..sound tackler, willing to play hurt, very good at recognizing the run and reacting to it.
Bad: Coverage skills aren't near where they should be, relies to much on
his speed to make up for bad reads...not a leader on D
These are off the top of my head, and now that he's on the Chiefs I think he'll fit right in with Kendrell Bell and Derrick Thomas. The Cheifs seriously
need a DT though to help that Defense out...their DT's right now aren't even

My favourite Viking or ex-Viking now. Pretty much what Severe said though.
His coverage skills are poor, but his speed does cover that a bit, he is certainly not what he should be though given his measurables.
Against the run he is a big reason why the Vikes were so good last year. Along with the monster D-Line and Winfields brilliant run support from Corner he was a major reason for the run defense.
Still makes far too many rookie mistakes when it comes to reads but has elite speed to make up for it. I think with a good Defensive coordinator to help him out he could excel, I dont think he is going to get that at KC and I dont think he is a good option in a Tampa 2 scheme either due to the coverage skills. I'd have liked to see him at a team running a 3-4 playing a similar role to Merriman personally.
