Brian Dawkins

With the 2nd pick in the 2013 OM NFL Draft......the Jacksonville Jaguars Select:

Cornerback, Dee Milliner, Univ of Alabama
6-0 201 lbs
4.31 and 4.37

STRENGTHS: Built well for the position. Plays with excellent coordination and smooth hips, using his arms and hands to knock down throws. Excellent awareness and read/react ability, getting his head turned and uses his eyes well to quickly find the ball.

Attacks the run and is a very good tackler, never backing down. He is a bruising hitter and does a nice job separating ball from receiver with terrific timing. Plays tight bump-and-run and enjoys pressing with little cushion. Closes quickly and baits throws, looking to make a play on each snap.

Smart and disciplined, but not shy about coming off his man to make a play. Physical striker and does a nice job avoiding blocks while keeping his eye on the ball. He processes information quickly and looks comfortable in space.

WEAKNESSES: Plays too aggressive at times and will take himself out of the play, missing some tackles. Has just one full season as a starter. Needs to refine some of his cover technique, most notably his backpedal.

COMPARES TO: Charles Tillman, CB, Chicago Bears -- Similar size and ballhawking ability when the ball is in the air.

pick made @ 11:53 mtn time

Oakland (CBF1) are on the clock.
