Rookie safety Kerby Joseph has been impressing the coaching staff and his teammates since his arrival in the spring. 

During the scouting process, Detroit’s front office was drawn to his natural ability to be around the football. 

After being converted to a defensive back in college, Joseph has been able to steadily improve with more opportunities to play. 

With Tracy Walker lost for the season, the young defensive back has been given the bulk of snaps at the safety position. 

“Kerby’s been, for three weeks now, he has not come off the field and we’re just letting him grow, but he’s been so close. I swear every week, we talk about, ‘Man, he is.’ The first time he missed one of those interceptions, he was about an inch away, and then the next one, he was about half an inch away. And so now, he’s starting to feel it,” Dan Campbell said, after Joseph recorded two interceptions against the Packers. “He’s got a little bit of — he’s got some instincts to him. Some ball hog instincts, but that was good to see.”
