2013 NFL Draft Preview: Cornerbacks

Posted Mar 25, 2013

A look at the top prospects at the cornerback position.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We will devote a week to each group, looking back at some of the Broncos' previous picks at the position and showcasing some of the top prospects through top stories, blogs and Broncos TV videos.

This week: defensive backs, a position we'll divide into cornerbacks and safeties.

Below you will find five of the top prospects at cornerback. For a photo gallery of the position group, click here.


• POSITION: Cornerback
• COLLEGE: North Carolina State
• HEIGHT: 6'1"
• WEIGHT: 205
• CAREER STATS: 169 tackles, 18 interceptions, 13 pass breakups
• COMBINE: 4.44 40-yd. dash, 15 bench reps, 35.5 in. vert. jump
On his height:
"It allows me to get my fingers on the ball sometimes when I'm not supposed to. And as far as getting hands on receivers and making plays that a guy a little bit shorter than me probably couldn't make, it definitely helps me."
Player • POSITION: Cornerback
• COLLEGE: Mississippi State
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 185
• CAREER STATS: 221 tackles, 16 interceptions, 5 forced fumbles
• COMBINE: 4.61 40-yd. dash, 10 bench reps, 34.0 in. vert. jump
On comparing himself to NFL players:
"I look at Antonio Cromartie, Richard Sherman. Look at Richard Sherman, a guy drafted in the fifth round and was the best corner to play in the NFL this year. Antonio Cromartie has been consistent, a lock-down corner for nine, 10 years. I try to base my game off those two guys and try to work off what they do."
• POSITION: Cornerback
• COLLEGE: Alabama
• HEIGHT: 6'0"
• WEIGHT: 201
• CAREER STATS: 133 tackles, 6 interceptions, 34 pass breakups
• COMBINE: 4.37 40-yd. dash, 36 in. vert. jump, 122 in. broad jump
On why he looks up to Deion Sanders:
“It's Primetime. You've got to love him. All the stuff you see, they do it because of him. He had that mentality, the swagger of a defensive player that a defensive back should have. He went out there, he attacked, he'll tell you what he's going to do and he backed it up 100 percent. People like that.”
Player • POSITION: Cornerback
• COLLEGE: Florida State
• HEIGHT: 6'1"
• WEIGHT: 210
• CAREER STATS: 140 tackles, 8 interceptions, 2 sacks
• COMBINE: 4.43 40-yd. dash, 40.5 in. vert. jump, 132 in. broad jump
On how he matches up with other cornerback prospects:
"Of course I'm going to say I'm the best. If I don't have confidence in myself no one else will. I feel like I'm the best here right now. I meet all the measureables: big, strong, fast, physical. I feel like I'm the best here."
• POSITION: Cornerback
• COLLEGE: Washington
• HEIGHT: 6'0"
• WEIGHT: 190
• CAREER STATS: 195 tackles, 6 interceptions, 5 fumble recoveries
• COMBINE: 4.38 40-yd. dash, 16 bench reps, 37.5 in. vert. jump
On having two brothers that took different paths to the NFL:
“My brother Isaiah, he definitely took the long road. He’s a very resilient person. It just shows that you never give up on your dream. People might say that you can’t do this or you can’t do that, or you’re too short or you’re not big enough. He just kept working. And I’m taking that to my game. I’m very resilient. And my brother Marcus went through the same process that I’m going through (as a potential first-round pick). And I’ve learned a lot from him – just be myself and do what I’m doing.”
