Walter Thurmond #26 SS
Height: 5-11 Weight: 190 Age: 28
Born: 8/12/1987 Los Angeles , CA
Experience: 7th season
High School: West Covina HS [CA]
Thurmond is the kind of prospect coaches really like because of his outstanding work ethic and competitiveness. Additionally, he?s a player with good size, strength and athleticism for the cornerback position. Also possesses good ball skills needed to make the tough interception. Was a highly productive player for the Ducks throughout his career and brings more value to the table as a return specialist.
Despite a quality frame, Thurmond lacks a little bulk and needs to improve his hand use to ward off blockers when coming up in run support. Durability is another possible area of concern as he?s coming off season-ending knee injury.
