Robert Alford is Robert Alford. Meaning, he is what he is. He’s not great, but he’s terrible. He will give up his fair share of completions, but will make a nice play from time to time. Alford has eight tackles on the year and five pass deflections. Not too shabby, but was torched by Odell Beckham Jr. in week 2. Eh, most corners are, but it is what it is. Hopefully Alford continues to improve as the season progresses.
