Stock rising and falling


Recommended Posts

Rising:

DB Marcus Gilchrist: Clemson

Gilchrist is one of the hotter names at the defensive back position right now for two reasons. One, he’s versatile. He can play corner, safety, in the slot and on special teams. Two, he’s one of the few potential safety prospects in the class that can actually run and cover ground in the deep half. I like his potential as a nickel guy inside at the next level, but can also see him playing in space as a centerfield type as well. Doesn’t do anything great, but he does everything well enough to come off the board in the third round range.

Falling:

CB Aaron Williams: Texas

It’s tough to find a spot for taller, stiffer corners who struggle to turn and run with receivers down the field, but that’s exactly the case for Williams. He did run better at his pro day (low 4.4’s) than at the Combine (mid 4.5’s). However, the Texas track is notoriously fast and on tape it’s simply too easy to get behind him vertically. Add in the fact that he really struggles with his footwork and change of direction skills in off coverage, and it’s becoming more and more likely he will be asked to move to safety in the NFL.

We are interested in both of them.

They're both very similar to Brian Williams: a corner/safety hybrid who would probably play nickelback in our scheme but could also backup Moore or DeCoud in a pinch.
