DB | (5-11, 200, 4.55 E) | Louisiana-Monroe
by Pro Football Weekly
Drafted by: Kansas City, Pick 33, Round 5 , Overall 162

Notes: High school quarterback. Redshirted in 1996. Started every game the past three years. Had 65 tackles, eight passes broken up and three interceptions in '97; 75-18-7 in '98, when he returned his seven interceptions for 196 yards and two TDs; and 40-10-3 in '99, when he also scored on a punt return. Had another year of eligibility remaining but decided to enter the draft.

Positives: Has good size for a cornerback. Durable. Did not miss a game in three years. Can make plays on the ball. Made a lot of big plays in '98 before opponents started staying away from him.

Negatives: Needs to continue to develop his skills, footwork and techniques. Does not appear to have great speed or jumping ability by NFL CB standards. May lack some catch-up ability.

Summary: Probably could have used another year in school, but he has a chance to develop into a player.
