Omar Bolden

School: Arizona State
Position: CB

Negative: Not a physical defender. Injury history will raise several red flags.
Analysis: Bolden was highly rated coming into the 2011 season and displayed top skill when healthy and on the field. His knee injuries the past two years will likely push him into the late rounds of the draft or even out of the seven rounds.

Positive: Opportunistic cornerback who plays with suddenness. Physical, mixes it up with receivers throughout the route and gives effort defending the run. Displays a burst to the ball out of his plant, explodes to the action and shows a nice move to the throw. Reads the quarterback's eyes, jumps routes and displays good hands for the interception.
Negative: Takes chances and will misjudge or poorly time pass defenses. Slow transitioning off the line with opponents. Loses out in battles.
Analysis: Robinson has been productive the past three seasons and consistently came up with big plays for Central Florida. Best facing the action, he would be most effective in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage.

Laron Scott

School: Georgia Southern
Position: CB
Bio: Junior college transfer who has started the past two seasons and was awarded all-conference honors on defense and special teams last season. Also named as an All-American special teams player in 2011. Senior totals on defense included 53 tackles/3 interceptions/18 pass breakups. Also averaged 30.6 yards on 34 kick returns with 2 TDs. Junior numbers included 44 tackles and six interceptions with a 26.4 yard average on 44 kick returns.
Positive: Small yet explosive defensive back who will make his mark in the NFL on special teams. Effectively reads the action, works hard to get off blocks and comes up the field to defend the run. Fluid turning his hips in transition to run with opponents down the field. Physical and fights hard to defend passes. Picks up big yardage as a return specialist, seeing the field, following blocks and finding open space.
Negative: Possesses just an average burst to the ball out of his plant. Limited recovery speed. Shows hesitation in his game.
Analysis: Scott does not have great defensive back skills for the next level yet will be kept on a roster if he replicates his special teams ability in camp this summer.

Coty Sensabaugh

School: Clemson
Position: CB
Bio: Started 14 games as a senior and posted career-best numbers of 40 tackles/1 interceptions/13 pass breakups. Junior totals included 28/1/2 in three starts.
Positive: Developing cornerback with a nice feel for coverage. Fluid transitioning off the line with opponents, mixes it up throughout the route and plays heads-up football. Works to keep the action in front of him, quickly locates the pass in the air and effectively blankets receivers out of their breaks. Displays awareness on the field, shows a burst to the ball out of his plant and has a nice move to the throw.
Negative: Not a reliable tackler. Loses a half step to opponents off the line and does a lot of trailing in downfield coverage. Not a physical run defender.
Analysis: Sensabaugh watched his game take off last season, and as a result his draft stock is moving north. He offers enough skill to get consideration in the late rounds and has the ability to line up in dime situations on Sundays.

Lionel Smith

School: Texas A&M
Position: CB
Bio: Former backup who started seven games as a senior and finished with 51 tackles while breaking up 8 passes.
Positive: Fast rising cornerback with a large degree of upside. Quick flipping his hips transitioning to run downfield with opponents, displays a fluid change of direction as well as a large degree of quickness in his game. Effective facing the action, displays good route recognition in zone coverage and a burst of closing speed. Works hard to get off blocks then comes up the field to defend the run or stop screen passes.
Negative: Neither quick or fluid pedaling in reverse and prefers to side shuffle. Slow getting his head back around to locate the pass in the air and struggles making plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: Smith was primarily a backup cornerback for Texas A&M yet did a solid job when injuries necessitated his move into the starting lineup. He possesses the size and athleticism to develop into a dime back at the next level.

Ryan Steed

School: Furman

Shows a nice move to the throw and consistently gets a hand in to knock away passes. Remains disciplined with assignments and remains aware on the field. Flexible, easily redirects to ball carriers and gets vertical and to defend the pass.
Negative: Not a big-time hitter or strong at the point of attack. Easily blocked from the action. Out-positioned by larger receivers.
Analysis: Steed was a consistent performer on the college level and possesses next-level skill. He offers the ability to line up in nickel or dime packages and should also be an asset on special teams.

Displays a burst of closing and recovery speed. Effectively gets his head back around to locate the pass in the air in man coverage situations. Can turn it on in a single step. Quick up the field to help defend the run or screen passes.
Negative: Gets beaten in battles by receivers on occasion. Does not possess elite downfield speed.
Analysis: Tandy is an underrated cornerback prospect with good cover skills and next level ability. He has the potential to be used in a variety of systems and on film comes across as someone who will help on kick and punt coverage units.

Negative: Lacks overall quickness and speed. Constantly chasing receivers downfield. Slow getting his head back around and does a lot of face guarding.
Analysis: Wade was productive on the college level and offers skills in an NFL zone system. Best facing the action, Wade would do well as a nickel or dime back in a zone system.

Analysis: Washington was a steady player for South Florida and is a solid developmental prospect who needs to polish his game. He offers potential as a ninth defensive back on an NFL roster but must do well on special teams this summer.
