Robert Alford

School: Southeastern Louisiana
Position: CB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-America and all-Conference honors as a senior after defensive totals of 39 tackles/4 interceptions/8 pass breakups. Also averaged 14.1 yards on 17 punt returns with one score. Junior totals included 52 tackles with five interceptions.
Positive: Dual-purpose prospect who can lineup as a starting cornerback and return specialist at the next level. Engages receivers at the line of scrimmage, smooth flipping his hips off the line, and affords tight man-to-man coverage down the field. Effectively tracks the pass in the air, nicely adjusts to errant throws, and possesses a quick burst to the ball. Agile, displays good hands for interceptions, and makes a lot of athletic plays. Stays with assignments and relatively instinctive. Doesn't bite on play action passes and correctly diagnoses the action. Game-impacting return man who sets up blocks then finds the open space.
Negative: Very quick to leave his backpedal. Not an overly aggressive tackler. Slow to react on occasion.
Analysis: Alford possesses the size and skill to help an NFL team in a variety of ways. He offers the ability to return punts as a rookie and the ball skills to play in nickel situations. Alford may need time to harness his skills but comes with a large upside.
