Some of my notes on Poyer:

Jordan Poyer, Oregon St. (511, 190)

2009: 11 tackles

2010: 34 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF, 1 FR, 2 INT (1 TD), 4 PD

2011: 57 tackles, 0.5 TFL, 4 INT (1 TD), 12 PD

2012 (YTD): 15 tackles, 3.0 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF, 5 INT (1 TD), 4 PD

Has made extensive contributions on special teams: gunner, kick returner, punt returner

Almost always lines up at left cornerback for the Beavers; converted from safety in 2010

Looks a little bit shorter than his listed 60, but has a muscular, compact build

Aggressive in coverage, gets physical with his man and will try to undercut routes

Reacts, breaks on the ball quickly and reads opposing routes well, especially in off coverage

Excellent ball skills to make plays on the ball in the air; soft hands, remembers to look back

Experienced in both press coverage and zone coverage; looks a little bit better in man coverage

Has yet to miss any time due to injury; will enter the draft having played in over 40 games

Misses far too many tackles; active but not powerful, more of a dive-and-swipe tackler

Struggles to shed blocks in the running game; active hand use but can be controlled

Not afraid to mix it up but may have some difficulty covering taller receivers in the NFL

Confidence borders on cockiness and personality may turn off some NFL teams

Grade: Second or third round

Notes: Poyer should be selected in the second or third round: he is a versatile, experienced player with outstanding competitiveness and impressive measurables. His burst, ball skills, and agility all stand out on tape and could earn him a starting job in the NFL. As a rookie, his special teams value as a gunner and return specialist could help him work his way onto the field. Only two factors may negatively impact his draft stock: his tackling and his personality. Poyer is active but ineffective in run support and pre-draft interviews may negatively impact his draft stock.
