*starts petition to have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame moved out of Cleveland*

For real, why in the hell is the R&R HOF in Cleveland anyway?

Player Bio
 
St-Juste (pronounced saint joost) was rated the second-best recruit out of Canada in 2017, signing with Michigan. He played in 12 games as a reserve (three tackles) that fall and then redshirted the following fall due to a hamstring injury. A Michigan spokesman said in March 2019 that St-Juste would be medically retiring from football, but he instead transferred to Minnesota. He received a waiver to play immediately, starting nine of 13 games played for the Gophers (45 tackles, 1.5 for loss, team-high-tying 10 pass breakups). St. Juste started five games in 2020 (14 tackles, three pass breakups), missing two contests. He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. -- by Chad Reuter

Overview
Intriguing cornerback with impressive measurables and a competitive spirit that shines through at the catch point and in run support. As a Canadian import with limited college experience at both Michigan and Minnesota, St-Juste is behind in terms of his feel and instincts. His route recognition is below average and his change of direction in coverage can be clunky, but those areas can improve with more experiences and technique work. He's a brute at the catch point, tilting contested catches in his favor, and he has some excellent tape as a tackler who finishes what he starts with form and strength. Finding the proper scheme fit will be important and a move to safety is a possibility. A team could see a noticeable improvement in his play within the first two years, but he's a developmental prospect with good upside at this juncture.
Strengths
  • Elite size and length for the outside.
  • Has potential for great physical challenges from press.
  • Experienced in a variety of coverage schemes.
  • Quick to close and tackle on first- and second-level catches.
  • Forceful closing through the catch point.
  • Tilts jump-ball odds in his favor with physical traits.
  • Length played major role in swatting passes in 2019.
  • Makes tackles on a consistent basis.
  • Centers up, runs and wraps through his target.
  • Plays off blocks and seals the edge.
Weaknesses
  • Will get turned around by average route-runners.
  • Declares and opens hips too early in press.
  • Grabby in coverage when he gets behind.
  • Route recognition and reading quarterback are a work in progress.
  • False steps at the top of his drop from off-man.
  • Narrow base in space creates bumpy transitions to shadow route breaks.
  • Needs to keep pads under his feet when changing direction.
  • Very average burst to the football.
  • Needs to find the ball sooner when face-guarding.
  • Undisciplined at times when supporting run near the line.

So....how had St. Juste going to us here?

6'3" is a big boy at CB.

Go back a few hundred pages to the start of the night and I said I liked St-Juste. Mostly cuz of his name. But I thought he was good too... but mostly because of the name.

 

Dude has a crazy wing span.
