New Orleans Saints CB Johnny Patrick leading the pack for nickel spot
2 of 2
On a passing play, Patrick blitzed quarterback Chase Daniel and deflected the throw. On the very next play, Patrick made an athletic diving interception against him.
Patrick is showing that he can play very aggressive in either coverage or in blitz packages. He also would have been credited with a sack on another play as he zoomed past Daniel on another blitz during the day.
While Mack and Johnson may have the years ahead of Patrick in regards to the position, it seems to be very clear that the sophomore cornerback isn’t going to let it go without a fight.
