You have to get a CB. I've been told by NFL scouting directors that in building a roster and football team, if you come across a player you feel can be a great corner, never pass him up. I stick by that now.
This 2013 class has some pretty corners in it that I would not want to pass up. With the spread being deployed all over the college football landscape these days, you need cover guys to combat it.
Here are the top 10 guys right now that can help.
Shelton is a 5'9", 170 pound cover corner with nice hips, good feet and speed. He showed out at a FSU camp and earned a schollie offer from the Noles, to which he took. Look for Shelton to develop into a great CB in Tallahassee.
Last year, Alabama got a super early pledge from a DB in Florida that turned out to be Eddie Williams. This year, it may be Artie Burns.
6'1, 175-pounds, Burns notched 40 stops as a junior, knocking down eight passes and was rarely tested in 2011.
Scout.com has Brazil timed as a 4.45 guy in the 40. He's 5'9", 175 pounds and has elite cover potential. Brazil can carry WRs deep with ease, competes and should be a solid special teamer early in his career—which will be at LSU.
Moore is a tall and long DB that stands a lanky 6'1", 175 pounds. He's got a similar frame to Geno Smith and is a solid athlete on the perimeter.
He hails from Central California and is a sticky corner. Moore likes to press on the line and use his frame to jam and re-route WRs.
I'll nestle Burrows here, just because I also have on the early safety board. He's a 6'2", 200 pound DB that is just a huge back end defender with great athleticism. Whether becomes a CB or S, Burrows should be solid at Ohio State.
Barnwell plays some QB on offense, but he looks to be a future college CB. He stands 5'11" and weighs 180 pounds and hails from New Jersey. Barnwell is fluid in his pedal and instinctive to make plays on the ball.
Woodard has a great amount of potential as a CB. He's 6'1", 180 pounds, a New Jersey native and has primetime written all over him. He solid coming out of his backpedal, uses his length well and carry WRs all over the field.
Terry is a South Carolina native that is a fast and quick athlete that can also play WR for you. He's a 511", 180 pounds with quick feet, good hips and great speed.
He's among the top players in the south for 2013.
Fuller reminds me a bit of Brian Poole, as he plays bigger than his listed size of 5'11", 180 pounds at CB. Fuller will jam at the line, then use his quick feet to stick to WRs in transition.
Hargreaves reminds me of Eric Wright when I saw the latter as a rookie when worked for the Browns. He just had excellent instincts and fell in coverage, to which the 5'11", 180 pounder Hargreaves has as well.
