6-foot-3 cornerbacks are anomalies, more often than not. Those types of players don’t always have the spryness or fluidity to match NFL receivers. At the very least, St-Juste breaks the mold with his excellent change-of-direction ability, and he’s also not slow.
St-Juste’s quickest path to opportunity would be safety, were he to get a look there. But as of now, it looks like he fits back at the traditional cornerback slot. While St-Juste himself is not yet overly versatile, St-Juste’s presence allows the Washington Football Team to experiment with other more experienced players like Fuller and Bobby McCain. That alone can be very important.
And if St-Juste learns to further hone his mental traits and refine his game around his length and ease of motion? He could potentially be a solid player on the boundary. His length is conducive to ball production, and as the game slows down for him, he could see an uptick in output.
