has a chip on his shoulder. We know this because Richard Sherman constantly reminds us. The former Stanford cornerback was taken in the fifth round of the 2011 , and that perceived slight has motivated him to be one of the leagutting their performances.The Toffees have endured a tough start to the season, but Silva has seen enough in training to bee optimistic.Asked by evertontv if the fight for places is intensifying, Silva said: “Yes, definitely, and that will make the die’s best defenders. It also has given him a unique perspective on the draft process.
“That’s all it is, is a sham,” the cornerback said during an appearance on ‘s ATL Debate Club podcast. “The players that are going to be hyped, are going to be hyped. That’s why you have half the first round as busts every year.”
Sherman’s draft-day experiences never affected his confidence. There was the involving back in Week 6, the involving in the NFC wild-card round, and now, a month after the lost to the in the NFC divisional round, Sherman has weighed in on Atlanta wideout .
During an appearance on ESPN’s Live last week (via ), Sherman called White “an easy matchup. He’ll be another easy matchup next year. This is just fact.”
Sherman expanded upon those thoughts Friday.
“[White’s] strengths are in their system, within their system,” the cornerback . “His strengths aren’t his own.

“During that game, for example, the play where he caught the touchdown, the touchdown wasn’t really on me, to tell the truth,” Sherman said. “But I’m not going to throw a teammate under the bus, because I’m not that kind of player. If that’s what you guys want to say, I’ll take it.”
(‘s Dan Hanzus looked at the tape and confirms Sherman’s assessment of what went wrong on the play.)
Sherman added that the Falcons keep White close to the formation to help him against press coverage. Or as Sherman put it: “The big, bad corners of Seattle.”
Good news: The Seahawks and Falcons will meet in Atlanta next season.
