its not his height that scares me. he played around 170 at VT but bulked up a bit for the daft process. whichever team that drafts him will probably ask him to get up around 185 at least. if he does, he could lose some of his athleticism and speed. I do not see a nickel corner when i watch him. seems like a guy that will either succeed at a high level(Asante Samuel) or bust(Fabian Washington)

2006 article by Clayton: Teams Have Different Philosophies on Cornerback Size

http://sports.espn.g...john&id=2422307

Still, the success of Smith and Santana Moss opened offenses' eyes to the advantage of the quick receivers who can get a lot of yards after the catch. It's forcing teams to upgrade the ratings on the smaller, quicker cornerbacks who can run with the receivers.

And that's a smart move, considering research shows that bigger defenders have a shorter longevity.

"In a 10-year study he did of cornerbacks, he noticed that the taller cornerbacks usually don't make it," Titans general manager Floyd Reese said. "How many 6-2 cornerbacks are there in the league?"

Currently, the NFL has only four starting cornerbacks who are 6-2: Gary Baxter of the Browns, Julian Battle of the Chiefs, Andre Woolfolk of the Titans and Mike Rumph of the 49ers, who played a little safety in the past two seasons. There are no 6-3 corners starting in the league.

"The optimum height is about 5-11," Reese said. "Many of the taller cornerbacks tend to get hurt."

Bigger cornerbacks tend to be more physical, which leads to more injuries. Bigger cornerbacks don't fear contact. That leaves them as targets sometimes.


There are plenty of very highly-rated, 5'10" CBs out there. Revis, Asante, Brent Grimes, Devin McCourty, Sheldon Brown, Ladarius Webb...hell, Antoine Winfield is 5' 9". I'm sure there are many more.

I'd rather get Gilmore or Jenkins if they're there.

more about the weight. 178 is a feather in this league.

can't discount him putting on weight in an NFL program of course, but i'm still leery.

He is scrawny and has awkward footwork. I would pass.

He put on 5 pounds from the bowl game to the combine. I don't think gaining weight is an issue with him in an NFL regimen.
