Seymour to get more work at nickel corner

Posted by Chris Brown on November 27, 2016 – 9:28 am

Last week Kevon Seymour saw more work at nickel corner than he had previously, but it was still just 15 snaps against Cincinnati. Nickell Robey-Coleman actually got more work by game’s end with 23 snaps. Today it looks like both will see work in the slot again, and Seymour could get more of the work.

“Seymour and Robey-Coleman are both going to play,” said defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. “What we have to do is utilize our personnel the way we feel is going to give us the best opportunity to get guys covered back there. We decided to mix it up to have as many up and ready to go as we can and let them go out and play.”

Buffalo’s defensive staff has been more conscious of using better height and length matchups against bigger and taller receivers in the slot. Knowing the primary slot receiver for the Jaguars is Allen Hurns, who goes 6-3 and 201 pounds, Seymour could see more of the work in the slot this week.
