Meet Adam Archuleta

4th in a series of new player profiles

Adam Archuleta
Position: SS
Height: 6-0
Weight: 223
Born: 11/27/1977
College: Arizona State
NFL Experience: 5

Scouts Inc. Profile

Quote:
He is an undersized SS who makes a lot of plays. He is not the same type of player, but the Rams try to do a lot of the same things Pittsburgh does with Troy Polamalu. He has very good straight-line speed for the position. He can come up on the line and match up with the TE in man-to-man situations. They will walk him up over the TE and he gets a nice jam, not allowing the TE to get a clean release. He plays more physical than his size. He flashes the foot quickness to align over a receiver in the slot. He is a solid zone safety -- has very good instincts. He closes well forward and to the sidelines in Cover 2. He is a smart player -- excellent instincts and can distinguish quickly between the run and pass. He anticipates well and shows excellent route recognition. He plays bigger than his size as a hitter -- can blow up ball carrriers and receivers when he gets them lined up. He did not play as well down in the box last season. He tends to get out-sized when blockers are able to reach him. He is not quick to shed blocks in run support. Because of his aggressiveness he does get out of position at times. He will overrun the ball in run support. He is more of a drag-down tackler -- better hitter than wrap-and-finish safety. Though he is fast, he can take some poor angles in coverage. He struggles in coverage as the deep safety. He does not have great ball skills in deep coverage. Overall, he is a high-energy player who flies to the ball. He loves football and plays with passion. He is a good Cover 2 SS and is effective enough dropping down in the box. He has the ability to make a team better in the back end.
Career Stats:

we didn't need them when he was with the eagles and they had a MUCH more potent attack than the cowboys have. all TO is going to do is wreck them even more than he did to the eagles.

Re: Meet Adam Archuleta

Archuleta is a big hitter and plays well when near the line of scrimmage. Still, he can't cover for shit. Mark my words, he will get beat, and beat soundly by good slot receivers and TE. The Skins better be ready to mask his weakness.

Re: Meet Adam Archuleta

Personally, I'm not a fan of the signing. Ryan Clark was cheap and more than servicable. This money could have been spent in an area of need.

I agree.

saden, arch is actually better on TEs cause he can jam them well and stick with them better than WRs.

Re: Meet Adam Archuleta

Archuletta is a proven safety. The Skins may have overpaid for him by a bit - - but what's new about that.

He is not good in coverage but he provides strong run support.

The thing that scares me about this signing is that the Skins have a lot of money tied up in him and he has had back injuries for parts of the last two seasons. For someone whose game is to be a "big hitter", back problems are not a good sign.
