Here is what Mike Holmgren had to say about Sunday's contest with Green Bay.
Scouting Report: Jeff Shoate
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 180 40: 4.68 Pos: CB
Bio: Second team All Conference selection the past two seasons after totals of 35/1/14 as a senior after 57/2/11 the prior year. Broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and finished with 48/3/7.
Pos: Nice sized corner best in zone coverage. Quickly plants on the ball and displays a nice burst of closing speed. Times defenses well and works deflect away the ball. Constantly placed over the opponent's best wide receiver and plays faster than his forty-time.
Neg: Slow turning back to make a play on the pass in the deep field.
Analysis: Flashing solid cover skills throughout college Shoate lacks the top speed to be used in man-on-man situations but offers potential as a limited area dime back.
