#99 – Isaac Yiadom, CB, Boston College

I'm a social worker by day and candle maker by night. I grew up in the 80's & 90's in Denver, live in Up-Sate New York where I had an illustrious one year college football career at a D1AA school. I've been a Broncos fan since the day I yelled at John Elway at camp in Greeley that it was, "time for you to shave". Mile HIGH enthusiast, sorry to disappoint, but Kush-Lash is only Jerry McGuire reference.

    Mason: How he fits: Third-round pick Isaac Yiadom


    Yiadom’s size and length — a 6-foot-1 inch frame with a 75 3/4-inch wingspan — allowed him to win more than his share of one-on-one matchups during Senior Bowl week, when he played for the North team coached by Denver’s staff.

    “Isaac was a guy that got better every day,” Head Coach Vance Joseph said. “He certainly fits our profile at corner. We want long corners with long speed because we’re a press [coverage] team.”

    “On defense, Yiadom finds himself in an intriguing spot, dropped into a competition for the No. 4 cornerback role with second-year players Brendan Langley and Marcus Rios. Langley, like Yiadom, was the Broncos’ final pick of the draft’s second day.”

    “But after playing extensively against the Raiders in relief of the suspended Aqib Talib, Langley was deactivated for three consecutive games last December, while Rios played in each of the final five games.”

    Tim, you seem to be the most familiar with Yiadom–can you give a sum of why you like the pick?

    I sort of figured they were more interesred in replacing Talib’s skill-set and phenotype than just rolling with any ol’ CB type.
