Kentucky CB Chris Westry's impressive stat for 2016
No player goes a while season without making a mistake, but in one area of his game, Kentucky CB Chris Westry was perfect. Pro Football Focus recently noted Westry was only of two cornerbacks who played at least 50 percent of their team’s snaps to not miss a tackle.
Only two college cornerbacks didn't miss a tackle this year:
Kentucky's Chris Westry
OSU's Marshon Lattimore
(min 50% of team snaps)

As a cornerback, Westry doesn’t have as many tackling opportunities as other positions, but his 42 total tackles was No. 8 among all UK defensive players.
