Starters: Jonathan Wev #25 Jr.
Back ups: David Sperry #28 Sr.
Third String: Eric Graham #29 Jr.
Junior Jonathan Wev (5-9, 196) emerged from spring practice atop the depth chart at field cornerback beating out last year's starter David Sperry. Wev has played mostly on special teams the last two years. He made his first career start against East Carolina last year. Wev made three tackles in the Blue & Gold game. Jonathan Wev is a very smart, competitive player with a great motor. He has outstanding field awareness and always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Wev is the epitome of a Navy football player in that he seems to be always playing with maximum effort.
Senior David Sperry lost his starting job to Wev this spring. Sperry started every game last year posting 70 tackles and recording two interceptions. Sperry has above average speed. He was named Honorable Mention All-Independent Team. Despite the post season honors he lost his job because Sperry lacks top cover skills. He's a solid player but seems a little slow to read the patterns and too often allows wide receivers separation.
Junior cornerback Eric Graham, for the second consecutive year, is scheduled to be the third string cornerback. Graham is a 6-0, 187 pound sophomore who was probably the best cornerback at the Naval Academy Prep school in 2009. In my opinion, he seems to have plateaued and hasn't really elevated his game since his plebe year. Graham made four tackles for the Gold team in the spring game.
