After a stellar Senior Bowl performance that saw Robert Alford record an 88-yard kickoff return and game-clinching interception of Zac Dysert on a failed two-point conversation, scouts came away incredibly impressed.
For his part, Alford was excited about representing his school at the All-Star game.
“This has been a dream ever since I stepped foot on campus....I wanted to make it my agenda to get to the Senior Bowl and showcase my talents out here.
That being said, it was the combine in Indianapolis that really put Alford on the map and into the conversations of mainstream scouts.
His 4.39 40-yard time placed him fourth among cornerbacks, behind only Darius Slay, Dee Milliner and Desmond Trufant; all more highly-touted prospects.
Showing great athleticism, Alford tied Xavier Rhodes for the best performance among cornerbacks in the broad jump. All said, Alford finished in the top five at his position in four of the six generic drills he participated in.
Ian Rapoport over at NFL.com had this to say about Alford following a great performance at Southeastern Louisiana's pro day.
Hearing ton of buzz about a player I'd slept on before today: CB Robert Alford of SE Louisiana. Raw, sick athlete. 8-10 visits. 1-2 rounder?
Alford isn't just a workout warrior, so don't get the wrong idea. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go a lot earlier than most experts predict.
