2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Donovan Warren

  • Very good height, length, and bulk
  • Excellent speed and athleticism
  • Fluid and shows ability to mirror
  • Impressive footwork
  • Terrific in run support
  • Physical – will get off or take on a block
  • Has nice anticipation underneath
  • Great closing burst
  • Underrated ball skills; turns, locates, soft hands
  • Comfortable on an island
  • Rarely thrown at
  • Three-year starter

  • Didn’t play a lot of press man

  • Opens hips up too early
  • Bites and gambles too often
  • Pass interference prone
  • Might lack some instincts and awareness

    Summary: The thing I love most about Warren is his confidence and intangibles. I really believe he will be a much better pro than college player because an NFL scheme and coaching staff will get the most out of him. He’s really flying under the radar and some team is going to get a steal in the second or third round. Scouts hate that he gives up big plays, but he can definitely improve on this in the NFL and I think there is too much unwarranted criticism. I’ll have him as a top 40-50 talent on my final Big Board.

    Player Comparison: Dunta Robinson. Robinson is an athletic corner who excels in mirroring receivers and making plays on the ball.
