Here is a little bit of a curveball, but let me present to you: Kemal Ishmael.

Ishmael already had a pick six this season, and is in line to start yet another game in place of the injured William Moore.

So far, he has had a very productive season. Coming off of a game where he had 14 tackles, Ishmael is starting to get into the groove. He runs explosively and fast toward the ball, plays the ball aggressively through the air, and is a bomb waiting to explode.

A UCF Knights alumni, Ishmael was honored with an honorable mention of the Jim Thorpe Award which is given to the best defensive back in college football. He also had 5 tackles for loss with an impressive 3 INT’s.

Disagree with me all you want, but I truly believe the Atlanta Falcons have found themselves a diamond in the rough in Kemal Ishmael.
