  • Is CB Prince Amukamara's Stock Falling?

    Everything I'm reading is that more scouts believe Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara isn't worth a top 15 selection and was more of a product of Nebraska's dominating d-line that included Ndamakung Suh back in 2009. He did not record a single Interception and many scouts say he didn't look like a top pick, which where many projected him as high as a top 10 in the draft.

    Now I haven't seen much of Nebraska this year, but is there anyone who can verify this or seen anything about him?

    I haven't heard anything like that at all.

    Amukamara will be a Top 5-10 overall pick and battle Peterson to be the first DB selected.

      No idea where this is coming from, Id say his stock had risen. I have him over PP right now as a pure CB prospect

            No. Easily the second best corner, and there's a case for him ahead of Peterson.

              This. Amu definetly looks like the top CB prospect right now and one of the best prospects regardless of position.

                  Same argument i have with people saying that julio tore up pp, that just wasnt what was happening if you saw the game.

                  However, prince should fall, have you seen his hair, its terrible!


                  Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                  - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                  - Corner or Wideout in the first
                  - No reaching
                  - No Kelvin Benjamin

                    could the lack of production be because of teams not throwing his way?

                      Not since he'll pick 6 Locker twice.

                        Except it didn't quite go that way, as Shane said. I've heard nothing that his stock is falling. Wouldn't mind though.

                          I think some are thinking Amukumara may be a better fit at safety. Perhaps they see Malcolm Jenkins in that Amukumara is a bigger CB prospect. As long as Amukumara shows speed, change of direction, fluidity, and superb CB technique all the perhaps he's a better safety talk will die down.

                          I'm sure when Prince gets an agent the above will be what he works on to try to even overtake PP#7. Go to a place that has good speed training and I'd like to work primarily on footspeed and making his technique nearly perfect.

                          People forget that Amukumara was a RB coming into college and is still early in his development as a CB prospect. I think Prince has a pretty high floor but has a higher ceiling than many believe because he can still be developed quite a bit.

                          I think Prince may need to work on a Jugs machine, with technique, and in the filmroom. I don't doubt his ballskills but since he doesn't have INT's this year that could be a doubt raised on him. Teams simply avoided his side of the field and I think he was better than last year in coverage even with Nebraska's passrush not being as good as last years. Infact 2 of Nebraska's passrushers are currently on Detroit roster in B. Turner and primarily Suh.

                            Actually, Blackmon did burn Amakurama a few times.



                            He gave up the 12 yarder, the 30 yarder, the big PI call where he got flat out beat, and the flea flicker TD pass to Blackmon which was like 60 yards. Those were all on Amukamara.

                            That said, it was one bad game in a stellar season. The guy is still a Top 10 pick.

                            EDIT: Of course Im aware that highlights don't show the entire story, this is just an example for people who haven't actually seen the footage of the game.

                              Watched a lot of Nebraska ball, and still think Amukamara will go in the 7-12 range. He doesn't see that much come his way, but it's easy to see his ability to be physical and shadow receivers.
