DRAFT PROSPECTS ANALYSIS: CORNERBACKS



The PFL is known to be a bit of a copycat league. This past season the league came to see speed as a major component for success. The 3-4 Odd Cover 4 Drop Show 2 defense became a standard weapon in every team's arsenal in an effort to slow down the rockets flying around the PFL stadiums this past year catching footballs. The Dallas Cowboys with WR Henry Ruggs and the Miami Dolphins with WRs Anthony Schwartz and Jaylen Waddle are in the Super Bowl yet again and the pressure to acquire speedy coverage corners has never been at a higher premium.

Last year's PFL Draft saw six cornerbacks taken in the first round. The top four chosen ( Derek Stingley-Miami, Sauce Gardner-Minnesota, Kaiir Elam-Cincinnati, and Trent McDuffie-Cleveland) had 94+ speed and became instant impact players. Stingley and Elam would finish tied for second in the league with 7 interceptions, Gardner would conclude his initial season with 2 picks, 2 TFLs, a fumble recovery, and 23 pass deflections, and McDuffie would tally 2 INTs, 1 TFL, 9 deflections, and 1 fumble recovery. So, what does this rookie class of corners offer to the PFL GM?

The first thing that has to be made crystal clear is that there are no Stingleys or Gardners in this class. The fastest of the group is Notre Dame's Terence Dalton and Middle Tennessee State's Gerald Hanna. However, Dalton's 84 acceleration rate would all but eliminate him as a speed coverage DB when one considers that there are 299 corners currently in the PFL with an accelaration rate above 84! In addition, consider that, of all the CBs with an acceleration rate of 84 or lower the one with the highest OVR is 35 year old free agent Chris Harris! Hanna has 33/35 man/zone coverage numbers and, well...

So, who is draftable? 21 year old Texas product LeRoy McGrath comes into the league with 92 speed, 94 acceleration, and a 79 man coverage resume along with a draft class best 97 agility and a somewhat pedestrain (but not bad at all) 89 jump number. There are only 15 CBs in the PFL that have a 92 speed/94 acceleration/79 Man coverage combination and only the Bengals' Kaiir Elam has a 97 agility rating. McGrath also will enter the draft with an 83 zone coverage ranking which is tops in this class. And, of course, McGrath has star development and is one of just six in this class to have that designation.

There also seems to be a bit of an obsession with drafting youngsters in the PFL. 20 year olds, with upside, are cherished and often selected before older, but perhaps initially more talented, players. Florida State's Frederic Christensen might very well be tabbed as the top CB taken off the board if a GM is seeking a good young player. Just 20 years old and having the Star Development tag, Christenden offers quite a bit of bang potential for the buck. His 95 speed, 93 acceleration, and 75 man coverage numbers puts him in a bit of rare company. The PFL has just six such players possessing those attributes and all six have an OVR of 84 or better! All six do have higher man/zone coverage ratings but, remember, Christenden is just 20 and will progress! His 96 jump number is second in this class and at 6'2" makes him a real weapon against the fade attacks some teams utilize in the league.

There are, of course, a few older, but more polished, Star Development rated corners in this draft. A pair of 22 year olds, Alabama's Gareth Carpenter and Michigan's Jonathan York, probably top this list. The 6'2" Carpenter is ready to go. His 94 speed, 96 acceleration, 95 agility combined with a very good 81 man/80 zone coverage rating makes him a top choice possibilty. Those ratings put him in an even more exclusive group than the two rookies mentioned above! There are only two CBs in all of football, Baltimore's Jaire Alexander and Cleveland rookie Trent McDuffie, that have the numbers that match Carpenters! York is right there too. There are just three Cbs that match his numbers: Alexander, Elam, and Sauce Gardner!

There are a few others more than worth a second glance. 23 year old Oregon grad Mustafa Benton has the fastest time (95) among the top prospects but he is older. He does have Star Development, an excellent 95 jump rating, and rates with high 70s for both man and zone coverage numbers. 21 year old Alexander Collins is a bit of a sleeper of sorts. The 6'0" 195 LBs LSU alum is a bit slower (93) and less agile (89) but his man/zone coverage numbers are fine and his 97 jump number would place him in the top 4 in the league when he enters!

Then, of course, are there any oddities out there or specialists that may have a role on a team or in a certain scheme? Georgia's Rajan Guzman and Clemson's Ali Cole are solid defenders but neither has Star Development. Cole is 21 while Guzman is 22 and the lack of development ratings will likely see these two slide a bit in this draft although both can clearly step in and play right away. Thin as a rail Rutger's DB Duncan Woods might find a home as a bit of a specialist. The 6'2' skinny 169 LBs Woods has solid speed numbers and is seen as the best man coverage player in this draft (84) but he is also a horrific zone coverage player (48) and his low awareness tag (45) probably eliminates him from any serious early round consideration.

Pre-Draft Rating: 1-Frederic Christenden-FSU

2-Gareth Carpenter-Alabama

3-Leroy McGrath-Texas

4-Jonathan York-Michigan

5-Alexander Collins-LSU

6-Mustafa Benson-Oregon

7-Ali Cole-Clemson

9-Rajan Guzman-Georgia
