Bears News: Eberflus on Tyrique Stevenson: "He seems more like a veteran"


by - Senior Editor -

With the offseason practices well underway, Tyrique Stevenson has been turning heads with his exceptional skills and the confidence of a seasoned pro.

"He's really shown what he showed in college," said coach Matt Eberflus. "So really good ball skills, length, instinct, competitiveness, he's shown all those things. And he's had a couple nice interceptions during the course of the offseason."

"[Stevenson] is a little bit ahead, I would say," Eberflus said. "He seems more like a veteran than a rookie, which is kind of cool, to be able to watch that. He's very confident. I think the guys gravitate toward him. He's a likable guy because I think he does love football and he is competitive. I think he fits in well with Gordon and Brisker and Eddie and all those guys that are really competitive that like to grind it and like to practice."

Stevenson's ability to quickly adapt to the professional environment and earn the respect of his teammates speaks volumes about his work ethic and dedication to his craft.

The fact that he has seamlessly fit into a defense populated by established players is a testament to his football IQ and the natural skills he brings to the table.

As the Bears head into the upcoming season, the emergence of Stevenson as a promising young cornerback provides a ray of hope for the team's defense.

His combination of athleticism, instincts, and competitiveness makes him a valuable asset who can potentially contribute right out of the gate.
