From Herb Zurkowsky:
As a seventh-round draft choice in 2017, Ty Cranston might have been the unlikeliest of candidates to fill the position. But through the early stages of training camp, defensive co-ordinator Barron Miles said the job is Cranston’s to lose.
“He’s a guy that actually played the position a little in 2019 — and did a decent job,” Miles said. “It was a no-brainer for me to put him there. Now he has to lose the job. He needs to get in there, do what he’s supposed to and not let anyone take it away from him.”
“His IQ is the most important thing right now,” said Miles, who was undersized when he played in the defensive backfield but thrived because of his quickness and knowledge. “The game’s 90 per cent mental. If you understand where you need to be, how you need to be there and what you’re doing when you get there, the game’s easy.
“He’s a very bright young man who’s doing very well at this point in time.”
