    Great article about Eric Weddle, the greatest Ute ever IMO

    https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900033560/ex-ute-great-eric-weddle-treats-every-day-like-its-his-last.html

     

    I never knew that he holds a combine record for fastest 10 yard split. That explains a whole heckuva lot regarding his uncanny ability to close on the ball.

     

    The breakdown of his stats at Utah was also eye popping.

    143 tackles

    10 sacks

    22 tfl

    23 pass deflections

    18 int

    9 ff

    6 fr

    10 total TDs

    those 18 picks came amongst multiple position changes, and while playing the majority of his senior year at Cornerback where teams actively avoided throwing the ball to the guy he was covering. He also shut down a future NFL superstar in Megatron in a bowl game. He meant as much to our offense as he did the defense.
