Coach P’s style isn’t for everyone, but those that figure it out, thrive.

Jerry Jones says he gets ‘fired up’ every time he’s around TCU’s Patterson | The Star-Telegram

It opened with Jones praising Patterson, saying: “I love your coach. He fires me up every time I get near him.”

Jones then asked Moehrig: “What is the most important things that you think you gained from having him as your coach?”

Moehrig responded, saying in part: “Like you said he’s very energetic. Everywhere — yelling, screaming, high paced. I would just say just listening to the message and not how it’s delivered, just learning how to adapt to coaching, different coaching styles. I think it’s helped me through my years at TCU.”

Top 10 safeties for 2021 NFL Draft: Richie Grant, Trevon Moehrig lead the way | The Athletic

Just a few days away from finding out if Tre gets a first round call.

Moehrig was a high school cornerback and wide receiver, which is reflected on his TCU tape, displaying natural instincts and feel when the ball is in the air. While he is quick to trigger versus both the pass and the run, he is missing an explosive finishing gear and lacks an ideal build, leading to durability concerns. Overall, Moehrig is a versatile, athletic ballhawk with the play range and anticipation to pattern-match in coverage in the mold of Jessie Bates, projecting as an immediate NFL starter (single-high or split-safety) and special teams contributor.

He ain’t no Karl Joseph. Though he could be a Raider.

Best-case scenario

Minkah Fitzpatrick. Moehrig is a better deep-third defender than some believe him to be, and he could do what Fitzpatrick did in the NFL — move from a box/slot/free hybrid to one of the best pure free safeties in the league.

Worst-case scenario

Karl Joseph. Not that Joseph is a bad player, but his relative confinement to a box role in a practical sense as opposed to a full-field cover guy is instructive if Moehrig does struggle with speed receivers at the next level.

I have seen AD and Denver connected a lot.

Final Thoughts

When I was watching Trevon Moehrig, it was hard to focus because Washington constantly popped off the tape. There’s little doubt his size limitations will impact his draft stock, but at the end of the day I believe his instincts, competitive toughness, and twitch could make him a very good nickel corner in the Fangio defense with the potential to become so much more.

Jamie Dixon loses top assistant to Creighton. How TCU basketball plans to fill void | The Star-Telegram

Could Micah Peavy’s dad, a successful high school coach in the DFW, be a target?

Dixon sounded excited about the opportunity for Miller. Miller will be able to return closer to his hometown of Mitchell, South Dakota, which is about three-and-a-half hours north of Omaha, and he’ll be able to coach his nephew Mason Miller. Mason Miller, a four-star recruit in the 2021 class, is the son of longtime NBA player Mike Miller, Ryan Miller’s brother.

As far as Dixon and TCU, a search for Miller’s replacement is already underway. Dixon is expected to make an outside hire for the position.
