Newman was to Marcus Trufant.
I was on the Desmond train awhile. Dude plays bigger than he is (I didn't understand Mayock's criticism on Tru's physicality…ummm…yeah?), can press, play zone, slide inside, he's just a natural. If he didn't play on HISTORICALLY bad defenses, he'd be top 10.
Ironically, Desmond reminds me alot of Asante.
