CB/S Quenton Meeks (see above)
CB Charvarius Ward, Middle Tennessee State He came to MTSU as a skinny kid from nowhere, by the end of his tenure and after devoting himself to the weight room and film study, he was the team’s shutdown corner on a very good defense. Continuously matched up against the opponent’s best WR, he used great explosion and speed to garner 14 passes defensed, and held some very good receivers to minimal results. Has NFL bloodlines with cousins Malcolm Butler and Glover Quin.
CB Brandon Facyson, Virginia Tech With his height (6014) and arms, might be the longest CB in this draft. Is a sneakily effective cover corner who just doesn’t leave a lot of room for balls to be completed against him, especially when facing more of a height/speed opponent. At 4.53 in the 40, is fast enough to be a nice matchup CB.
CB Andre Chachere, San Jose State. Long arms, makes great plays on the ball without creating penalties. Recognizes and mirrors routs. Good tackler who uses wrap-up technique and never gives up on the play. Numerous examples of him running 60 yards plus from the other side of the field to prevent a TD. Great hustle.
CB Tremon Smith, Central Arkansas Great high pointing ability and awareness. Made one of the best INTs of 2017, high pointing a would-be TD throw, and twisting his body in the air to land inbounds. Good return skills.
CB Parry Nickerson, Tulane Has ‘my ball’ mentality, in the extreme. Probably could play some WR, with great body control and hands when playing the ball. lso, great guy to have as your widest risher on kick block team. 188 tackles from the CB spot, 16 INTs … oh, and he ran 4.32 in the 40!
CB/S Bradd Ellis, Ohio Undersized, but had 18 passes defensed in 2017 and is always around the ball as a tackler.
CB Demetrius Monday, Kent State Built like a LB and uses arm length to effectively bat away slants and outs from trail position. 10+ career INTs from having great awareness and coming off coverage to make plays.
CB Ronnie Scott, Alabama State A little undersized at 5’11 175, but uses vertical ability and anticipation to make plays on the ball.
CB Arrion Springs, Oregon My kind of corner. Unafraid to be physical and punish ball carriers, yet not grabby– plays the pocket of receivers and high points without undue contact. Makes the occasional highlight catch but if he just caught the easy ones, he’d be selected a couple of rounds earlier in the draft.
