De'Ante Saunders

School: Tennessee State
Position: CB
Bio: Two-year starter who began his college career at Florida. All-America and all-conference selection as a senior after 51 tackles, 5 INTs and 6 PBUs. Also averaged 21.9 yards on five kick returns.
Positive: Under the radar cornerback with solid ball skills. Remains disciplined with assignments, effectively reads the quarterbacks eyes and shows good anticipation of the play. Has a nice burst to the ball out of his plant, good hands for interceptions and competes to defend throws. Keeps the action in front of him and effective in zone coverage or backed off the line of scrimmage. Solid open-field tackler.
Negative: Lacks closing and recovery speed. Struggles with deep coverage assignments. Short and loses out the taller receivers.
Analysis: Saunders is a well-rounded cornerback who can be plucked off the waiver wire after the draft's seven rounds then compete in camp this summer to play in dime packages.
