You take the good with the bad. But he had at least 2-3 where if he had even average safety play, the receiver doesn’t score … first one that comes to mind is New England
Do you know what the coverage was?

Everyone in unison about how much PFF sucks..

For those who like to pass time, and take this with a grain of salt like I do, enjoy...

Outside of Micah Parsons there is no member of the Dallas Cowboys who’s external perception changed more throughout the 2021 season than Trevon Diggs. That isn’t to say that nobody believed in Diggs, but there weren’t exactly tons of people projecting him to lead the NFL in interceptions back in June of 2021. What Diggs did last season was incredibly special, and while his interception count may dip this season, he can still certainly improve as an overall player.

One of Diggs’ biggest doubters, using that term a bit loosely, has been PFF. Given Diggs’ proclivity to take risks he has been graded a bit lower by their formula. The short story of the whole saga is that he is a bit of a risk-taker and the times he doesn’t make the play can negatively weigh down his grade in their system.

Recently, though, PFF had some rather high praise for Diggs which is nice to see.

Kazee rotated into single high post-snap. The coverage had him there to easily make the PBU. A good safety possibly intercepts the ball. A mediocre safety like Kazee overruns the play and gives up an additional 40+ yards and a TD.

Why? They are literally just sharing charting data.
Because few that watched him play would rank him as the best cover corner. He has great ball skills but he's not as good in coverage as Brown is.

Ranking and stats are for people that don't watch the games.

But no one is saying that Diggs is the best cover corner....PFF actually ranks him somewhere between #40-50 (Id have to look it up) in coverage. The article is talking one specific coverage, that makes up about 1/7th of his snap count, which is why im shocked its causing this much of a stir. It's like an olineman who excels in pass blocking but cant move an interior defender off the line in a run play to save his life. Both can be true.
