Marc Anthony: Video Highlights for Former California CB

0 of 5

    Marc Anthony is a relatively unheralded cornerback in the 2013 NFL draft class, but the former California defender was consistent during his time with the Golden Bears for the last three seasons. 

    The 5'11'', 196-pounder has ideal size to play on the outside as a professional, and last year, he reeled in two interceptions and had 52 total tackles, 7.5 of which came for a loss. 

    Here are some of the top plays of Anthony's collegiate career. 

Interception on Crosser vs. Stanford in 2012

1 of 5

    Anthony exhibited a nice burst when breaking for the ball on this play against Stanford in 2012. 

    Upon watching the replay, you'll see Anthony initially dealt with an outside fake, but he had enough catch-up speed to fight back across the middle and undercut the route for an interception. 

Interception in Zone Coverage vs. Arizona State in 2011

2 of 5

    There wasn't much to this play—it was more of a bad decision by 2012 draftee Brock Osweiler than anything else—but it gave a glimpse of Anthony's ability and awareness in zone coverage. 

    As Anthony recognized where Osweiler planned to throw the football, he drifted off his assigned coverage area in the flat to pick off the pass further down the field. 

Pick-Six vs. Southern Utah in 2012

3 of 5

    On this play, Anthony made a swift break on the ball and undercut the route—something that appeared to be his staple during his time at Cal—and intercepted Brad Sorensen's pass. 

    With a full head of steam, Anthony scampered 61 yards for the score. 

Firm Edge Setting and Tackle for Loss vs. Stanford in 2012

4 of 5

    Here against Stanford, Anthony stayed fundamentally sound setting the edge on a pitch to the outside. 

    Not only did he position himself perfectly, but after getting engaged by a Stanford wide receiver, Anthony pushed back the blocker nearly five yards, which didn't allow the Cardinal running back to turn the corner.

    Anthony was in soft man coverage on this play, and the receiver he was assigned to cover ran a quick hitch route near the first-down marker. 

    The California cornerback recognized the route being run and quickly changed directions to close on the wideout. 

    The ball was caught, but Anthony's jolt jarred the ball loose, forcing the incompletion.
