has anyone read any bio of this kid, explaining his flaws? Everything I've read is very positive, yet he is ranked fairly low.
Here are his measurables:
- 5'10", 195 lbs - 5 lbs bigger than Harris, identical size to Bolden
- basing on results from the combine, he should be in the 12-14th best CB (drafted as 15th CB):
- 40: 4.41 (7th)
- Bench: 14 reps (12th)
- Vert: 35" (17th)
- Broad Jump: 125" (12th)
- Very productive in school
- high character guy
- can be involved in return game
Sounds to me like he got drafted about where he should have been. If nfl.com or whomever missed him, that's probably on them. Frankly, this reminds me a bit of the Wolfe pick - highly productive, under the radar.
By the way - each of Websters combine results were superior to Mathieu, and no one seemed to blink about him going early in the 3rd.
