Chris Campbell CB

Gollin - Cardinal pick in round #6 (Overall Pick #182...Not written up by any of the major draft guides. Sketchy info from various sources describe him as a tall backup corner who lacks fluidity and quick-twitch. He was used sparingly in 2016 and injuries kept him off the field in 2016. Lack of official information makes it difficult for arn-chair qb's to evaluate the pick. What we do know is that he's got the size modern-day coaches like; but whether or not he has the athleticism and other intangibles is for the coaches to determine during minicamps and OTA's.

Draft Blaster - A long, strong defensive back, that has the size and length to thrive in press coverage at the next level. Strong tackler, and has the arm length that allows him to effectively break up passes regularly. Extremely reliable, and can improve his draft stock if he can show good to very good top end speed during the draft process.

Niners Web Zone - Has him 6-1 195 lbs...Quotes Lance Zierlein: "Long corner lacking the fluidity and twitch to stay connected with intermediate and deep routes. Campbell looks more comfortable playing off the line where his long arms have a shot to cover for his inconsistent footwork. He's not a fluid enough athlete and hasn't made enough plays on the ball to warrant much excitement, but if he runs well, his size and speed could get him drafted." At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-1 and 195-pound Campbell had had 14 reps in the bench press. Other measurables for Campbell include an arm length of 33 1/2 inches and hands that measure 8 3/4 inches. Campbell played sparingly during his junior season, catching his first interception and forcing a fumble. His playing time increased the next year due to an injury to starting John Reid. As a senior, Campbell played in all 13 games for Penn State and had team-highs of 13 passes defensed and two forced fumbles. His senior performance earned him an invite to the 2018 Senior Bowl.

By Bob Flounders - Is Christian Campbell destined to continue his football career on the West Coast?

The lanky corner was one of the top attractions at Penn State's Pro Day. Campbell, a 6-1, 193-pounder, enjoyed a breakout season in 2017, starting all 13 games and producing 25 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and an interception. Campbell then took it to the next level with an impressive showing on the Senior Bowl practice field. He could anywhere from Round 2 to the middle rounds at the NFL draft in late April. And Campbell said a few of the teams showing the most interest recently are the San Francisco 49ers, the Oakland Raiders and the Arizona Cardinals. "I'm a tall corner,'' Campbell said.
