Cornerback DataBase
2 Joshua Jackson CB x Iowa rSo 6000 196 x

USA Today - If you love highlight-reel interceptions, Jackson may be your favorite corner... A big-play machine with ideal size and length, Jackson’s ridiculous one-handed pick against Ohio State turned plenty of heads, and he’s turned that defining moment into a draft stock explosion...Jackson tied the Hawkeyes’ single-season record with eight interceptions this year, leading the FBS in the process. Still needs some polish, but his physical tools and ball skills will make it nearly impossible for Jackson to fall out of the first round....

Lindy's - No college CB played the position better this season...Led nation with 8 interceptions...Ideal blend of size, rote antipation and ball-skills...Still a work in progress...PR experience...Long-levered - a step late covering smaller quicker receivers...monitor his straigh-line speed. Comp: Rod Woodson.

PFW - Height and length are strong points...Smooth athlete with loose hips..., low in pedal and hands...Willing in run support...but has lean frame...not as aggressive as he should be supporting the run...good but not great speed...Durable...excellent anticipation and ball skills...needs to get stronger in upper body...too many misses whe attempting to tackle.

1 Denzel Ward) CB x+ Ohio St Jr 5110 183 x

USA Today - Ward is the next in a long line of talented playmakers to patrol the Ohio State secondary....first-round talent in his own right....Listed size might lead some scouts to question whether or not he can stay on the outside, but his longer arms, technique and physical playing style have made him successful against even bigger receivers. His decision to skip the Cotton Bowl only further cements his projection as a Day 1 prospect...

Lindy's - Left CB...speed-demon with twitchy athleticism...Lacks size, length and build but makes up for it with tight coverage..."fastest guy at Ohio St" during Urban Meyer regime...swivel hips/velvety feet...Better-than-expected core strength and toughness...Plays well with back to ball but needs to turn his head toward the ball better....Grabbiness a concern...works hard in weight room.

PFW - Very athletic with great speed, easy COD, quick feet and loose hips....Plays with confidence...short memory...bestin press coverage...Lacks ideal height...Lacks experience but talented enough to come in and play right away.

Combine Forty: 4.32

Ten: ...BP: 16...VJ: 39.0...BJ: 136

4 Isaia Oliver CB x Colorado Jr 6000 201 x

USA Today - This year’s CB class has yet to have a true front-runner..., but Oliver could easily end up being that player. With a tall frame, long arms and polished technique, Oliver has the physical skills NFL teams are looking for in a potential No. 1 corner....Opposing quarterbacks have learned to avoid testing,...but he still managed to pick off a pair of passes and break up 12 more so far this season. Could end up being the first corner off the board or he could end up being a huge steal if he’s still on the board heading into Day 2.

Lindy's - LCB who occasionally shadowed his team's best WR...Has the height, lenght & athletisim to be a classic press-man defender...Quicker receivers will give him trouble...Standout on ST coverage...Upright pedal and transition...not soft, but not the most eager tackler on the fields... Only 3 career interceptions.

PFW May be the best athlete in this draft.....Can return punts...-Ideal height and length...Returned punts...Smooth athlete with speed, COD & body control...Good in run support...very good hands...easy movemen tin transition...very good hands...can play man or zone...

Combine Forty: 4.50

BP: NA...VJ: NA...BJ: NA...SS: ...LS: ...3C: ....

3 Jaire Alexander CB x Louisville Sr 5100 196 x

BRS (Gollin) - Elite speed.

USA Today - This year’s draft class doesn’t have a clear-cut top corner prospect, but Alexander can make as strong a case as anyone. A feisty, physical cover man with the confidence necessary to be successful at the position...Exactly what NFL teams are looking for in a first-round talent....Injuries held him back for much of the 2017 season, which may have contributed to Alexander’s decision to sit out the TaxSlayer bowl...At full strength, he’s arguably this year’s best prospect at a premium position.

Lindy's - One of the most intriguing corners in the country after an explosive soph campaign but multiple injuries caused him to miss considerable action...Lacks ideal size but is feisty/willing to gamble...Best attributes: light feet and fluid hip turn...PR prospect...Varies his drop...Good instincts...threat to score whenever he has the ball in his hands.

PFW - Not the most physical guy but very capable in man or zone coverage... Good size, long arms and very good athletic ability...Runs well with a good burst...very good feet, smooth hips and smooth COD...Willing in run support...VG punt returner...Short memory...But lean frame (needs to bulk up)....doesn't consistently wrap up...cockiness can border on taunting...Not the most physical guy...Productive man-cover guy with great ball skills...Very talented...can play zone very well...Medical (knee)...needs to get stronger......

Combine Forty: 4.38

BP: 14...VJ: 35.0...BJ: 127...SS:3.98...LS: ...3C: 6.71....

13+ Kameron Kelly CB x San Diego St Sr 6020 204 xx

USA Today - One of this year’s most intriguing defensive back prospects...Size and versatility will have plenty of NFL decision-makers excited....A big, physical defender with the confidence and ball skills to be a difference-maker at the next level, he spent three seasons at corner for the Aztecs before moving to safety in 2017. His size and length will could have teams hoping he can move back to corner and match up with the league’s bigger, more physical receivers.

Lindy's - Looked more like a standout safety before transitioning to corner...Impressive size, ball-skills and knack for making big plays...aided by an aggressive Aztec defense...Looks the part of a larger "new age" corner...quick-footed/loose-hipped...impressive route anticipation...somewhat stiff backpedal...will struggle vs smaller, quicker WR's...Needs work on his jam...monitor his straight-line speed. Medical (Compartment Syndrome).

PFW - NA

Combine Forty: 4.66

BP: 9...VJ: 33.0 ...BJ: 120...SS: 4.28...LS: ...3C: .6.94...

13+ Holton Hill CB x Texas Jr 6020 196 xx

Lindy's - Ranks #25...Had a forgettable soph season (due to off-the-field issues - mainly drugs)...,But arguably the best tackling CB in this draft class...Outstanding height and length...Good run recognition and recovery quickness...A bit handsy up and down the field...Three defensive TD's - two picks and a blocked punt.

PFW - Very tall and long...Smooth athlete...easy COD....quick feet...loose hips...low in backpedal...can turn and transition quickly...willing in run support...good tackler...Suspended for final four games of 2017...drug issues...not a burner but fast enough...needs to add upper body strength...will take an extra step before breaking on ball...Has all th physical tools...interviews and background check will be key.

Combine Forty: 4.49

BP: 14...VJ: 31.0...BJ: 120...SS: 4.15...LS: ...3C: 6.83....

5 MJ Stewart CB x North Carolina Sr 5110 200 xx

USA Today - A stout cover man with a well-rounded skill set, he was one of this year’s biggest winners at Senior Bowl practices. His physical style of play will impress teams who prefer to play press-man coverage, but a deep corner class could make him a bargain in the middle rounds....Stewart failed to register a single interception in 2017. but that’s mainly a product of opposing quarterbacks wisely choosing to avoid his side of the field. Even so, he still managed to break up 12 passes this season, while proving his tackling prowess with five stops behind the line of scrimmage....

Lindy's - Aggressive nature might be his best and worst trait...Could continue to be a flag-magnet in the pros...More quick than fast...Returned punts...Competes with the right mindset...Lacks deep speed...Questionable oiff-field judgment (Fraternity brawl resulting in injury to at least one participant).

PFW - Very physical for a corner and a really good tackler...Reacts well with ball in the air...arms a bit short...no interceptions in past 2 years..Thick strong build - more like a SS than a corner...Very physical in run support...ceiling is a #3 slot corner.

Combine Forty: 4.54

BP: 18...VJ: 35.0...BJ: 118.. ...SS: 4.28...LS: 11.19...3C: 6.90 ....

13+ DJ Reed CB 3x K-State Sr 5090 188 xx

USA Today - Despite his lack of ideal height, Reed has been highly productive for the Wildcats, racking up 28 pass breakups and seven interceptions over his two seasons...A deep corner class could push him down the board, but he could be a huge steal if he’s still available by Day 3....Part of a draft class is littered with undersized corners who play bigger than their listed measurements, Reed has been a constant headache for opposing quarterbacks and receivers alike...

Lindy's - His story is one of perserverence...walk-on after receiving no offers in HS...Compensates for lack of size & strenght with fluid athleticism, playmaking instincts ands a scrappy temperent...ST value...hits with low COG...fluid hips/smooth transition...Short undersized frame with below-average core strength...Inconsistent run defender.

PFW - Too short (only 5-9)...Quick suddenand speedy...Smooth athlete...Plays the ball in the air well...Returns kicks and punts...Good hands...will support the run...Not very physical...lacks upper body strength...misses some tackles...height will knock him off some draft boards.

.Combine Forty: 4.51.

BP: 11..VJ: 36.5

13+ Quenton Meeks CB x Stanford Sr 6010 209 xx

USA Today - Strong, athletic corner with size and physicality who can matchup with top pass-catchers... Meeks could be a huge steal in a deep corner class....Opposing quarterbacks wisely avoid Meeks if possible, but that didn’t stop him from breaking up 15 passes and picking off five more (two for touchdowns) over the past two seasons. He’s got all the tools to be a quality starter in the NFL for years to come.

Lindy's - (Can best be summed up as: "Finds the ball with his back turned but struggles to make plays on it.")...Steady production each season...size, demeanor and hustle are his calling cards...better run defender than cover guy...lacks explosive traits and top-end speed but brings reaction skills, intelligence & toughness...Prototypical size...Processes the action seamlessly.

PFW - Rare size for a corner...really long arms...Good athlete with low pedal and good turn...keeps plays in front of him...willing run supporter/good tackler....good in zone...but tends to play cautiously and give up too much cushion...suddenness and transition not elite...gives up too many big plays/not a consistent finisher...lacks top-end speed and suddenness...Has the frame to carry 210 lbs and might project better to safety.

Combine Forty: NA

BP: 11...VJ: 39.0...BJ: 128 ...SS: 4.23...LS: ...3C: 6.72....

13+ Levi Wallace CB x Alabama rJr 6000 179 xx

BRS (Gollin) - Speed not overwhelming.

USA Today - A former walk-on who worked his way into a scholarship and eventually a starting role in one of the nation’s most talented defensive backfields, he has slowly been climbing up draft boards all year long... Could use a few pounds of quality bulk on his lean frame, but his refined technique and playing style still allow him to be physical at the LOS. NFL coaches will love his competitiveness...

Lindy's - No scholarship options out of HS, but worked his way onto the squad..."Football journey is far from over" due to athletic skill-set and ball production...Loose hipped with fluid footwork...earns his keep with hand techniques in press...Toughness no questionmark....Added consierable weight since HS...Only one season as a starter.

PFW - Exceptional football character...Well-coached...Strengths are height and length...can play man or zone...VG ball reactions - closes quickly...Great back story - originally a 'Bama walk-on who never saw the field til 2016 and never saw a scholarship for 2 years...Willing in support but not a big hitter...Late pick who should make the club.

13+ Jordan Wyatt CB x SMU rJr 6000E 192E xx

PFW - Good man-cover guy with very good ball awareness and hands...closes quickly...good in run support...not as sudden or fast as preferred...good zone player with VG ball skills...don't know why he's coming our early.

Combine Forty: NA

13+ Carlton Davis CB x Auburn Jr 6010 206 xx

USA Today -This year’s corner class has yet to see any of the top prospects truly separate/Davis is one of many who could do just that with a strong predraft workout circuit....A physical corner with ideal height and length, his skill set and playing style is exactly what opposing pass-catchers hate lining up against. Puts his physical tools to good use in press-man coverage, and unafraid to mix it up in the box

Lindy's - Big, physical CB with long athletic frame...Steady improvement over past 3 years...Long and athletic...Best in close-in man coverage...plays big vs. big talent...rellable open field tackler with penchant for big hits...may not have come close to reaching ceiling...not a flawless player/prone to giving up big plays...Lacks ideal hands. Comp: Mel Blount

PFW - Excellent size, length and strength...One of the more physical corners in this draft...Can pedal...have to question his awareness - gets confused when switching...Terrific size and length to go with speed...Talented but still developing...May be overdrafted.

Combine Forty: 4.53

BP: 16...VJ: 34...BJ: 124

13+ Darius Williams CB x UAB Jr 5100E 179E xx

USA Today - One of the nation’s most productive corners in 2017, Williams picked off five passes and broke up 19 more...instincts, ball skills and technique overshadow his smaller frame, but size may limit him to slot work at the next levell...Does have all the tools to be a quality starter there, and a solid value in the later rounds of a deep class....Former walk-on (who) has developed into a legitimate NFL prospect, and one of this year’s more underrated corners. Though he lacks ideal size for a pro cover man, he plays with the confidence and physicality of a much bigger defender

PFW - NA

13+ Tarvarus McFadden CB x FSU rSr 6020 204 xx

BRS (Gollin) - Lacks acceptable top-end speed.

USA Today - Was widely regarded as possibly the top corner prospect in this class, but his roller-coaster performance this year had him drop behind a handful of other names. There’s no denying his physical tools, but his consistency needs a ton of improvement...It doesn’t take long to notice McFadden’s combination of size, length and athleticism, and that alone could entice a team to spend a first-round pick on him. A strong performance at the combine could sneak him into the top 32, but at worst, he’ll be headed for a second-round slot..

Lindy's - Ranks #7 - sensational sophomore season (8 picks) did not repeat itself the following year...Has the length, athleticism and ball skills to be an NFL starter, streaky footwork and fundamentals lead to spacing issues and coverage breakdowns...Outstanding height and length...doesn't let receivers get comfortable...Leverages the sideline...ST standout...One-speed defender who struggles with body-position/head-turn...Average play strength...Comp: PJ Williams

PFW - Excellent height and length...VG zone awareness...low in pedal/can turn quickly...willing in run support/good tackler...question his long-speed...needs to get stronger...production really slipped last year...teams didn't challenge him in 2017 the way they did in 2016...Biggest concern is whether he has top-end speed vs. vertical receivers....If he runs higher than 4.5, he could go higher.

Combine Forty: 4.67

.BP: NA...VJ: 38.5...BJ: 121

13+ Donte Jackson CB x LSU rSr 5100 178 xx

USA Today - This year’s deep corner class is filled with undersized but athletic playmakers with all the physical tools to be quality starters at the next level - Jackson is among the best in that group....He has put his speed to good use breaking up 18 passes over the past two seasons. Some teams may be concerned by his light frame, but if he’s able to add some quality bulk and still retain his fluidity and explosiveness, he could be one of this year’s best values at a premium position.

Lindy's - Has special speed...Athleticism allowed him to play all over the secondary...Playing speed is critical to the position and Jackson checks this box with a big red sharpie...More a freelancer than an instinctive cover man...Undersized with an undisciplined style, but sudden-trwitch athleticism helps mask flaws...Thin-boned frame...not an eager run defender...Questionable discipline (loose-cannon tendencies).

PFW - Ranks as #4 CB - One of the top college sprinters in the US...Excellent speed, quickness and explosion...VG ball reaction and run support (but will miss some tackles)...But has small frame and not very good hands...Very quick and sudden with an exceptional closing burst..Plays ball well (gets a lot of deflections)...

Combine Forty: 4.32

BP: 7...BJ: 124

7 Anthony Averett CB x Alabama xx 5110 183 xx

USA Today - One of the nation’s top safety prospects coming out of high school...eventually made the transition to corner, earning a starting role as a junior in one of the nation’s top defensive backfields....A lean cover man who doesn’t mind mixing it up at the LOS,he will need to add a few pounds of quality bulk if he wants to have the same success in press-man coverage against NFL pass-catchers. A deep corner class could push him to the draft’s final day, where he could be a fantastic value.

Lindy's - Speedy cover man...Played RCB...Doesn't play as big as he measures....Has read/react athleticism and competitive grit that allows him to play sticky coverage...Lacks great ball production but speed and quick reaction skills are NFL-ready...Best long jump in natioin (25-2)...Struggles covering comebacks...Late getting his head turned tp locate FB.

PFW - A technician with the speed and athleticism to play in the NFL...Excellent physical tools...stays low in pedal/quick burst out of pedal...can be physical and jam or re-route his opponent...Quick to transition and support the run...VG tackler...Lean frame...played in program with a reputation for turning out well-coached players...Not special/just very steady...

Combine Forty: 4.36

.BP: 13...VJ: 31.5...BJ: 119...SS: 4.40..3C: 6.93....

13+ Devron Davis CB x UTSA 0 6000 210 xx

PFW - NA

Combine Forty: NA

10 Darius Phillips CB x W Mich xx 5100 193 xx

USA Today - In addition to being a lock-down corner, Phillips has been one of the nation’s most dangerous return specialists, taking back a pair of kickoffs back for 100-yard touchdowns in 2017. Size may limit him to the slot at the next level, but he’ll be a quality starter there from Day 1, and his special teams abilities will allow him to make an immediate impact l....This year’s draft class is loaded with undersized but talented corners, and Phillips is among the best in that category. A feisty, athletic cover man who plays bigger than his listed measurements, he's a schooled technician who frustrates opposing receivers with his brain as much as his brawn...

Lindy's - Playmaker...Half-heartedly made the move from WR to corner, but eventually bought-in to the switch - and thrived...FBS record for returns for TD's (12), including 5 kick-returns and five interceptions.....At corner, he shows the speed and awareness to compete at a high level...Tape plays up his lack of size/functional strength ...Electrifying with ball in his hands....Plays the ball like a WR...Outstanding ball awareness...Confident...consummate teammate...Unbelievably hard-worker...Has narrow underesized frame with minimal bulk...Unreliable but illing tackler(flag-magnet)

PFW - VG athlete with speed...Long arms....VG ball skills...lots of awareness and anticipation....But short - not good in run support...needs to get stronger....willlose some jump balls...wide receiver who moved to corner in 2015...As good a cover guy as he is, he'll lose sometimes due to his height. Projects as a #3 slot corner who should be picked up in Round 3 or 4....

Combine Forty: 4.54

8 Duke Dawson     Florida   5110 197  

USA Today - A feisty playmaker with solid technique and a nose for the ball, he should be a perfect fit as a nickel corner at the next level. Size may keep him from cracking the top two or three rounds on draft weekend, but he can be an immediate starter at a key position in today’s NFL, making him a potential bargain in the middle rounds...Don’t call Dawson “undersized” unless you’ve actually had to line up against him. This physical, confident cover man plays with the mean streak of a much bigger defender, and opposing receivers have found that out the hard way...

Lindy's - Played behind (& overshadowed by) future early NFL draft picks (Hargraves, Wilson, Tabor)...Lacks ideal height and length, but wins with quiocknes, anticipation and sticky hands...Impressive showing at Senior Bowl...Team first guy...built more like a safety...More than likely to let teammates do the dirty work in physical play.

PFW - Good press-coverage guy/strong jam...Sudden...alert in zone...has the athletic traits needed to play at next level...quick, but his iop-end speed may be just marginal...doesn't attack the run the way he should...height limitations could cost him some jump balls...If he runs better than expected, he could have a shot at playing outside.

iCombine Forty: 4.46

BP: 15

13+ Charvarius Ward     Midd Tenn St        

USA Today - If you’re looking for a sleeper prospect who is still hovering under the national radar, Ward is your man. A talented cover man with ideal size and length, he has all the physical tools to develop into a starter at the next level....JUCO transfer who broke up five passes and picked off two more in his first season with the Blue Raiders, Ward followed that up with an impressive senior campaign in 2017, breaking up a team-high 14 passes. This year’s deep corner class could make Ward a valuable bargain in the later rounds.

PFW - NA

Combine Forty: NA

9 Nick Nelson     Wisconsin   5110 200  

USA Today - A well-built cover man with a great combination of athleticism and physicality, he has the confidence and skill set to develop into starting material at the next level. This year’s deep corner class could keep him on the board longer...After 21 starts at Hawaii, he transferred to Wisconsin and sat out the 2016 season due to NCAA rules. but in 2017 wasted little time making his presence known, starting all 14 games in 2017 and breaking up 21 passes...

Lindy's - Made a name for himself in Hawaii ...didn't register an interception but had fantastic ball production...will probably be underdrafted due to lack of elite speed, height and length...but makes up for it in field-smarts and consistent wins at catch-point...has the coordination and short-area quickness to mix and match in man coverage...ST (PR) experience...not twitchy...Only one season of Power 5 experience.

Lindy's - Swiss Army Knife of Tenn defense - nicknamed the "energizer bunny"..Infectious energy, but emotions will get the best of him at times...Lack of game-changing plays on his resume...Finely-tuned athlete with outstanding top-end speed...must learn to maintain discipline (no double-bid salutes to the crowd in the pros)

PFW - Experience at both CB and safety...Good size/uses his length and strength effectively...Man cover skills just average...lacks top suddenness and feet...much more comfortable in zone. More likely a safety with a limited upside..

11 Mike Hughes     UCF   5100 189  

USA Today - One of the fastest risers in this year’s corner class, a second-round slot shouldn’t be out of the question for a player who was barely on the radar at the beginning of the year.....Hughes made the most of his one season at the FBS level, making all-conference as both a defender and a return man...Made a huge impact for the nation’s only undefeated team every time he touched the field...Value as a return specialist is a bonus, but his ability to lock down an opponent’s top receiver is what will have NFL teams clamoring for his services.

Lindy's - Lacks ideal height, but competes with the mentality of a lock-down cover man...Physical in press (good hands) /no problems flipping hips...Background red flags but coaches at all levels vouch for his character...Unsure in zone or off-coverage...Needs to clean up launching style as a tackler...Tends to give up on plays away from him...Comp: Kareem Jackson.

PFW - Ranks #5 as CB - Productive kick and punt returner...played very well in press-man and zone...VG athlete with speed, quickness ans suddenness needed at CB....Loose hips...good tackler...Suspended (fraternity house iincident)....lacks height...May lack great size, but willing in run support ... May never be a #1 corner but is a second-round talent who'll project as a soiid #2.

PFW - As a safety - Excellent safety size with the frame to get bigger...Good to VG athlete with great speed...Plays hard every down...Co-captain...Physical tackler/good run support player...Delivers some blow-up hits...experience in man coveage (but skills not top-notch)...Can get out of control and overrun plays...Aggressive syle may encourage teams to play him close to the LOS...Played deep and over slot receivers...May grow into a hybrid backer...
