What can you tell me about this guy? 6'0 205lbs and has been putting up insane numbers the past 2 years.

2007 Stats
65 tackles
15 PBU

2008 Stats
45 tackles

So why isn't he getting any pub?

Good question. I've been high on this guy for a while based on what I've seen of him. He's been extremely productive and has nice size for a CB. I would not be surprised if he declared early this year and I would not be surprised if he ended up being a 1st round pick. He is strong and can power clean 330 which is very impressive for a guy his size. The biggest question with him is his 40 time. He is expected to run in the high 4.5 range. If he can get under a 4.5, his stock will shoot up.

He looks faster than high 4.5 eyeball testing to me.
The real reason why he hasn't been getting hyped is because he's a junior still, I believe. He's not a game breaking athlete either, especially for a corner.

Walter Thurmond III is pretty good on that team as well

He is not a burner but a very physical and smart cb. Might be a better saftey in the nfl.

just watched a youtube vid of him returning a punt for a TD...he needs to get with a running coach before the combine. he runs way too upright...kinda like mario manningham did at the combine and put up like a 5.83 40yd...he kinda looks like his feet are really heavy.

He might really be a guy that can benefit from that transition, although I think he'll have to play himself out of being a corner.

Thurmond looks pretty damned good as well.

This guy grades out to be a first rounder in my books for 2010. Hes a fantastic safety.

not terrible. but ive seen him get burned a lot. he makes some plays though and hes a big physical corner. hopefully hes not too slow. maybe a safety?
