The Andrew Booth Jr Hype is Starting to Build

Folks, don’t let one great practice rep fool you: Andrew Booth Jr. still has a long way to go when it comes to solidifying himself in the NFL. Even still, it’s encouraging to see him make a great play against Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson.

Take a look at the interception that’s getting the hype:

A great play from the Vikings’ second-round corner. It’s also good to see that he’s embracing competition:

Apparently, Andrew Booth Jr. also clarified that he’s feeling healthy: “It felt great, just finally being back on the field and seeing real speed offense. It was beautiful to be back out there.” Patrick Peterson had some praise for the rookie: “He looked pretty good. He moved around really well. It looks like he’s healthy so we’ll see if he can continue to build on that. I like how instinctive he is. He’s very quick at the line of scrimmage. He’s going to be problem here pretty soon.”

Minnesota has a mix of young and old among their corners. Peterson – who will one day be in the Hall of Fame – is near the end of his career. Cameron Dantzler is entering his third season but is still only 23. ABJ and Akayleb Evans are rookies. Chandon Sullivan and Nate Hairston are veteran journeymen. Kris Boyd and Harrison Hand are still on their rookie deals. At least three or four corners need to emerge from this group in order for Minnesota to have a strong secondary.

Competing against Justin Jefferson, according to Andrew Booth Jr., will help to prepare the rookie for Week 1: “I’m seeing the best in J.J. every day, so that’s going to get me ready for Game 1. It felt good.” If that’s the case, then fans will see ABJ help to slow down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense in the season’s opening game.

Fans will finally get to see the Cowboys play real football for the first time since their playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.The Dallas roster that took the field in the playoffs looks very different from what will be in training camp. Randy Gregory, Amari Cooper, La’el Collins, Connor Williams, and Greg Zuerlein are all members that played prominent roles and are no longer with the team.Production like that has to be replaced somehow. Thankfully, stars like linebacker Micah Parsons and cornerback Trevon Diggs became cornerstones for the Cowboys’ defense. The front office is also putting a lot of faith in a younger, more inexperienced receiving core. The biggest question now is which players will elevate their game heading into the new season?
