NFL Draft Diamonds recently began showcasing some of our favorite YouTube Channels to help boost their views. We wanted to showcase this video from our friend Guru aka Gurufilmroom who recently broke down the film of Illinois Free Safety Kerby Joseph.
Free safety with average size and speed, good athleticism and only one season as a full-time starter at Illinois. Joseph worked for all five of his interceptions in 2021, using both his length and range over the top. He lacks prototypical instincts as a single-high safety but that might be due to a lack of experience. He’s fluid in space but needs to play with better anticipation. Joseph is missing the demeanor and tackle strength for the box and is likely to be viewed as less versatile than some other safeties in the class, but he has potential in single-high and split-safety alignments. – Lance Zierlein
