  Trent McDuffie does not fit the mold. Kevin King is the mold. Sidney Jones is the mold. Keith Taylor, Dominique Hampton, Asa Turner, Jacobe Covington, Julius Irvin, Makell Esteen, Elijah Jackson: they are the mold. UW head coach Jimmy Lake even acknowledged it last week, saying "you see the DBs. We always like long guys, bigger guys." McDuffie is not one of those guys. And yet, when it's all said and done, he may be the guy in the Huskies' secondary. The statistics say the same. In a phenomenal freshman season, McDuffie - all 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds of him - started the last 11 games and totaled 45 tackles, three passes defended, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and an interception. He was also credited with just one missed tackle and surrendered a measly six passes of 15-plus yards on 421 coverage snaps.

The former St. John Bosco High School standout was ranked as the 12th-most valuable corner in all of FBS as a true freshman. And it's not because he has long arms or a physically formidable frame. It's because of everything else. "I think I'm just technique-sound," McDuffie said on Sunday. "Every day I work on it like it's a religion out there - making sure my footwork, my technique, my eyes are all as good as they can be. I'm a big perfectionist, so I'm always making sure everything is correct. "And I'm a big track guy from high school, so I like to use my speed a lot when I'm out there. It's my extra hand when I'm out there, so I'm able to make plays on the ball." - Seattle Times
