Athletic players who struggle on D
I've always found it interesting when you see athletic players who struggle of defence. A player like Kendall Stephens is a perfect example. Can obviously move well, has quick enough reactions and sufficient lateral movement but has been type-cast as a "poor defender" (from reports). It therefore must come down to attitude. Surely rectifying poor defensive traits can be done quite quickly but in many cases this stays throughout the relevant career. As a junior these are basic endeavour skills that somehow get forgotten about due to offensive talent.
Tyler Harvey and Kouat Noi are current examples.
Goulding is a player that may have fallen into this category but was able to turn this around in recent seasons.
Interested in thoughts about these scenarios.
