  1. Joe Haden, Florida - Scouting Report
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 189.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.57.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.43.
    Benchx225: 18. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): Top 13 Pick.

    3/17/10: It's amazing how much faster your 40 can get when you don't have a back sprain. Joe Haden was never a 4.5X guy; there was never a doubt in my mind. And to top it off, Haden's 40 came on a wet field, so scouts are reportedly going to subtract .05 seconds off Haden's 40. Not that it should be a big deal or anything. Haden will be selected anywhere from Cleveland No. 7 to San Francisco's first pick (No. 13).

    3/3/10: A lot is being made of Joe Haden's horrific 40 time of 4.57. I personally don't think it's a big deal. The instant Haden got into his stance, Deion Sanders nearly had a seizure. Deion noted that the stance was terrible, and sure enough, Haden got off to a poor start both times. He'll likely improve his 40 at his Pro Day. Haden is still an option for the Browns at No. 7, but there's a greater chance he falls out of the top 10 now.

    1/4/10: Joe Haden has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Haden will be the first cornerback taken and has a shot at being selected in the top 10.

    3/7/09: Replaced Donovan Warren as the top 2011 cornerback prospect. Joe Haden, qualifying for the All-SEC Second Team, broke up an amazing 12 passes. He also had 87 tackles and three interceptions.

    8/5/08: Started all but one game as a true freshman. Joe Haden broke up 12 passes and managed 63 tackles.



  2. Kyle Wilson, Boise State - Scouting Report

    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.43.
    Benchx225: 25. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.

    3/26/10: Kyle Wilson ran a solid 4.43 at his Pro Day. He also notched a 10-2 broad jump. The Titans may like Devin McCourty's number, but Wilson has solidified his first-round status.

    1/29/10: Kyle Wilson had a great Senior Bowl week, and may have emerged as the No. 2 corner in the 2010 NFL Draft. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    1/27/10: Kyle Wilson has been drawing rave reviews for his Senior Bowl performances. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    1/9/10: Broke up only four passes as a senior, but still qualified as an All-America Second Team member. Kyle Wilson helped lead Boise State to a national championship as a corner and a punt returner; Wilson averaged 10.6 yards per punt return.

    3/7/09: If you think Kyle Wilson's 10 passes broken up and five picks are impressive, just check out his three punt returns for touchdowns and his average of 14.2.

  3. Devin McCourty, Rutgers
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.

    Projected Round (2010): 1-2.

    3/3/10: Devin McCourty ran the fastest 40 of any corner at the Combine at 4.34. He also looked great in the drills. McCourty may sneak into the first round.

    1/27/10: One player who really shined at Senior Bowl Monday practice was Devin McCourty. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    1/9/10: A member of the All-Big East First Team, thanks to 80 tackles, 7.5 TFL and 10 passes broken up. McCourty also averaged 25.4 yards on kickoff returns, scoring a touchdown in the process.

    3/7/09: Broke up seven passes and notched 57 tackles as a junior. Also blocked a kick, the fourth of his collegiate career.

    8/5/08: Will get some consideration as a special-teamer. He blocked three kicks in 2007. Devin McCourty also had seven pass break-ups and two interceptions.

  4. Kareem Jackson, Alabama - Scouting Report
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 196.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.41.
    Benchx225: 16. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 2.

    1/16/10: Kareem Jackson has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Jackson will probably be drafted in Round 2, so you have to like this decision.

    1/9/10: Kareem Jackson broke up a whopping 13 passes for Alabama as a senior. There are some questions regarding his 40, so that'll be huge for him.

    3/7/09: Broke up 10 passes for Alabama's stout defense. Also maaged 44 tackles and a pick.

    8/5/08: Another SEC true freshman cornerback to make an impact in 2007. Kareem Jackson started 12 games, and collected 66 tackles, three interceptions and four pass break-ups.

  5. Patrick Robinson, Florida State - Scouting Report
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.42.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.38.
    Benchx225: 15. Vertical: 39.
    Projected Round (2010): 2.

    3/18/10: Patrick Robinson may have sealed his Round 2 status with a 4.38 40 at his Pro Day.

    1/9/10: Patrick Robinson was voted to the All-ACC Second Team this year and notched 11 pass deflections this year, but was burnt in coverage one too many times.

    3/7/09: Patrick Robinson had 26 tackles, two TFL and four passes broken up in 2008.

    8/5/08: Despite starting just five games, Patrick Robinson picked off six passes and had six pass break-ups. Unfortunately, Robinson was one of the players involved in the infamous Florida State cheating scandal last year.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.43.

    Projected Round (2010): 2.

    3/3/10: Chris Cook had a great Combine, running a 4.43 at 6-2, 212. Al Davis will definitely be interested in Round 2.

    1/9/10: Chris Cook battled through a groin injury as a senior, but still had four interceptions and six passes broken up.

  7. Brandon Ghee, Wake Forest - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.37.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 15. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    3/3/10: Brandon Ghee measured in a bit taller than he was listed (6-0 instead of 5-11) and then ran a great 40 (4.37). There's a good chance he goes in Round 2.

    1/27/10: Numerous corners are shining at the Senior Bowl, and one of them is Brandon Ghee, who may have vaulted himself into late first-round consideration. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    1/9/10: Brandon Ghee broke up eight passes in 2009. In a matchup against Demaryius Thomas, Ghee completely shut the athletic receiver down.

    3/7/09: Though he missed two games with an ankle injury, Brandon Ghee still managed 35 tackles, seven passes broken up and 3.5 TFL.

  8. Dominique Franks, Oklahoma
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.52.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.47.
    Benchx225: 10. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    3/9/10: Dominique Franks ran a 4.47 at his Pro Day. He's a likely second-round pick.

    1/6/10: Dominique Franks has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Aside from playing well at Oklahoma, Franks has nice size and speed. He'll probably be targeted in Round 2.

  9. Amari Spievey, Iowa
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.47.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.53.
    Benchx225: 6. Vertical: 34.5.
    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    3/22/10: Prospects usually aren't slower on their Pro Day than at the Combine. But Amari Spievey ran a 4.53 at Iowa's Pro Day. He's still a Round 2-3 prospect.

    3/10/10: Amari Spievey, who impressed at the Combine, has reportedly received a first-round grade from some teams.

    1/12/10: Amari Spievey has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Spievey is a talented corner who had two interceptions in 2009, but has declared into a pretty deep cornerbacking class. He could be lost in the mix as a mid-round prospect depending on how he fares at the Combine.

  10. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Indiana of Pennsylvania
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 207.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.43.

    Projected Round (2010): 2-3.

    3/15/10: Akwai Owusu-Ansah had an incredible Pro Day, running a 4.31 and benching 21 reps.

    1/9/10: Akwasi Owusu-Ansah's first name aptly means "born on Sunday." AOA averaged 29.7 yards on kickoffs and 12.5 yards on punt returns with five special-teams touchdowns.





  11. Perrish Cox, Oklahoma State - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.53.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.54.
    Benchx225: 12. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    4/3/10: Worked out on his own for his Pro Day; wasn't welcomed back at Oklahoma State after being suspended for a winter practice game.

    3/3/10: Perrish Cox struggled at the Combine with a 4.53 40. Cox is inconsistent on tape and could have used a strong performance in Indianapolis.

    1/9/10: A big corner with some speed, Perrish Cox shadowed No. 1 receivers all year. He picked four passes and broke up 15 more. He also did a great job as a return specialist, averaging 10.4 yards on punts (with a touchdown) and 21.0 on kickoffs. One concern however: Cox was suspended for Oklahoma State's winter scrimmage against Ole Miss for undisclosed reasons.

    3/7/09: Projected as a zone corner, Perrish Cox notched 32 tackles, eight passes broken up and two picks as a junior. Also, Cox returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.

    8/5/08: Perrish Cox was inserted into the starting lineup mid-season, and never looked back, as he was penciled in the final eight games of the season. Cox finished with 42 tackles, two picks, eight pass break-ups and two special-teams touchdowns.

  12. A.J. Jefferson, Fresno State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 186.

    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 7. Vertical: 44.
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    3/3/10: Mike Mayock repeatedly praised A.J. Jefferson during the Combine. Jefferson, who is 6-0 with long arms, ran a 4.43 and notched a 44-inch vertical. He's a project, but has a ton of upside.

    1/9/10: A poor year for A.J. Jefferson; he averaged just 23.2 yards per kickoff return - down a whole six yards from last year.

    3/7/09: Not much of a corner, but A.J. Jefferson had yet another kickoff return for a touchdown as a junior. He averaged a dazzling 29.3 yards per return.

    8/5/08: A.J. Jefferson is listed here as a kick returner. He scored two touchdowns on special teams last year, and even maintained the nation's top return average. He also blocked a field goal and returned that for a score.

  13. Jerome Murphy, South Florida
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 196.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.52.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.51.
    Benchx225: 16. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    3/3/10: Ran a slow 40 (4.52) at the Combine, and from what I'm hearing, he turned some people off during the interviews.

    1/9/10: A massive corner, Jerome Murphy qualified for the All-Big East Second Team with 77 tackles and eight passes broken up.

  14. Javier Arenas, Alabama
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.52.
    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 3-4.

    1/9/10: A First-Team All-American, Javier Arenas had 70 tackles, 11 TFL, five sacks and five passes broken up. Arenas had just one return touchdown, but still averaged 15.4 on punt returns and 29.0 yards on kickoffs. Even if he doesn't make it as a corner, Arenas still deserves Round 2 consideration because of his return ability.

    3/7/09: Working more as a corner for the first time in his collegiate career, Javier Arenas thrived, breaking up seven passes. The All-SEC second-teamer was also a dynamic return specialist; he scored three touchdowns on punt returns and maintained a 23.6 average on kickoffs.

    8/5/08: Javier Arenas hasn't seen much action as a corner, starring primarily as a return specialist - and a pretty solid one at that.



  15. Donovan Warren, Michigan - Scouting Report
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.59.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.62.
    Benchx225: 12. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    3/17/10: Ouch. Donovan Warren ran a slower 40 at his Pro Day (4.62) than at the Combine (4.59). Looks like he'll be a Day 3 steal.

    3/3/10: I think Donovan Warren is a terrific player, but he really hurt himself by running a 4.59 at the Combine. He may slip on Draft Day, but whomever picks him will likely land a steal.

    1/3/10: Donovan Warren has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Warren is an excellent corner. He made the right move by capitalizing on an incredible junior campaign. He should be the second corner off the board.

    3/7/09: Not even Donovan Warren's stock was immune to Rich Rodriguez's blunders. Warren regressed a bit in 2008, but still finished with 52 tackles, 3.5 TFL, four passes broken up and a pick.

    8/5/08: Donovan Warren played extremely well as a true freshman in 2007, starting 11 games, and managing 52 tackles and six pass break-ups. He qualified for the Freshman All-America first team.

  16. David Pender, Purdue
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.43.
    Benchx225: 12. Vertical: 39.
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    3/18/10: Dave Pender didn't run the 40 at Purdue's Pro Day (neither did Mike Neal), but Pender was able to up his bench presses from eight to 12.

    1/9/10: David Pender was a member of the All-Big Ten Second Team thanks to 13 passes defended.

  17. Walter Thurmond, Oregon
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 189.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.

    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    1/9/10: Played only four games this year after suffering a sprained knee. 3/7/09: Despite playing through injuries all year, Walter Thurmond finished with 66 tackles, five picks and eight passes broken up.

  18. Crezdon Butler, Clemson
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.41.
    Benchx225: 17. Vertical: 39.5.
    Projected Round (2010): 4-5.

    1/9/10: Crezdon Butler broke up seven passes and was an All-ACC honorable mention in 2009.

    3/7/09: Establishing himself as one of the better corners in the nation, Crezdon Butler collected 43 tackles, four picks, five passes broken up and 3.5 TFL. His 40 is also appealing.

    8/5/08: Any corner who runs a 4.3 is bound to get noticed at the combine (particularly by Al Davis), but that's not to say Crezdon Butler isn't talented. Butler started every game as a sophomore, and recorded 49 tackles and three picks.

  19. Myron Lewis, CB/FS, Vanderbilt
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.45.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 10. Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    1/9/10: Chris Hawkins broke up seven passes as a senior.

    3/7/09: Chris Hawkins broke up nine passes in 2008. He also had 50 tackles and three picks. However, he really struggled in coverage late in the year.

    8/5/08: Chris Hawkins has yet to record a start at LSU, but that's understandable, given that he was playing behind Chevis Jackson and Jonathan Zenon last year.

  21. Walter McFadden, Auburn
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 181.

    Benchx225: 11. Vertical: 31.
    Projected Round (2010): 5-6.

    1/9/10: Voted as a 1-AA Second-Team All-American, Patrick Stoudamire broke up a whopping 16 passes in 2009. Level of competition is obviously an issue, but Stoudamire will be an early Day 3 sleeper.

    8/5/08: A member of the all-first team in his Division 1-AA conference, Patrick Stoudamire recorded 41 tackles, nine pass break-ups and three picks as a sophomore.

    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    1/9/10: Syd'Quan Thompson's 40 will be huge because he's only 5-9. Slow and small corners tend to fall on Draft Day. Thompson was a First-Team All-Pac 10 member with 10 passes broken up.

    3/7/09: Though size is a bit of an issue with Syd'Quan Thompson, the All-Pac 10 first-teamer continued to prove doubters wrong on the field. Thompson had 70 tackles, 14 passes broken up, 7.5 TFL and four interceptions as a junior.

    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    4/12/10: Bryan McCann, an omission in the April 12 updates, ran a 4.28 at his Pro Day and notched a 40.5-inch vertical. Those measurables could get him drafted.

    1/9/10: An All-Conference USA honorable mention, Bryan McCann broke up 10 passes. He also maintained a 24.2 average on kickoff returns.

    3/7/09: Collected 35 tackles, five passes broken up three picks. More impressively, Bryan McCann hasn't missed a start in about 30 games.

    8/5/08: Started at a few positions in SMU's secondary. Bryan McCann broke up seven passes and intercepted four balls as a sophomore.

  27. Rafael Priest, TCU

    Benchx225: . Vertical: 28.
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    3/12/10: Couldn't run at his Pro Day because of a foot injury.

    1/9/10: You know a corner is good when he plays 11 games, has six pass deflections, yet has managed only 18 tackles. Opposing quarterbacks avoid throwing at Rafael Priest, an All-Mountain West first-teamer. Priest missed the national championship because of a foot sprain.

  28. Trevard Lindley, Kentucky - Scouting Report
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.

    Benchx225: 9. Vertical: 38.
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    1/31/10: Mardy Gilyard embarrassed Trevard Lindley in coverage. Lindley's stock has plummeted.

    1/28/10: Having a very weak Senior Bowl, and could completely kill his stock with a weak 40 at the Combine. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section.

    1/9/10: Trevard Lindley really struggled at the beginning of the season with an ankle injury, but really picked things up at the end of the year when he finally got healthy.

    12/13/08: An All-SEC First Team qualifier, Trevard Lindley had 37 tackles, 11 passes broken up, four interceptions and a pick-six. There's a good chance he'll make the first round this April, so it would benefit him to come out early.

    2007: Trevard Lindley seems to make all the plays. He was a major contributor in Kentucky's two upset victories over Louisville and Arkansas.

    3/7/09: Brian Jackson totaled 71 tackles, 11 passes broken up and two picks in 2008. He may have to move to free safety in the NFL.

    Benchx225: . Vertical: .
    Projected Round (2010): 6-7.

    1/9/10: LeRoy Vann doesn't have a position on offense or defense in the pros, but with his five special teams touchdowns in 2009, he now has 11 in the past two years!

    3/7/09: I'm not sure how effective LeRoy Vann will be as an NFL corner, but when you have six kickoff/punt returns for touchdowns in a single season, who cares?

  33. Sherrick McManis, Northwestern
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 192.

    Projected Round (2010): 7-FA.

    3/7/09: More playing time actually hurt A.J. Wallace, as he was often exposed. Still, he runs a great 40, so someone will consider him in the later rounds.

    8/5/08: A.J. Wallace will have scouts and GMs drooling, as he easily runs a 4.3 with a very nice frame (6-1). He started four games as a sophomore, and recorded 33 tackles and four pass break-ups. He also had a touchdown on a kick return. Wallace will have more playing time with Justin King off to the NFL.

    3/3/10: How does a corner run a 4.73? Many of the defensive ends were faster than that.

    1/9/10: Didn't play all year except for the team's winter scrimmage because he was academically ineligible. Shocker.

    3/7/09: Being charged with resisting an officer. That can't be good for his draft stock.
