Breaking Down Corners D.J. White and William Jackson III

D.J. White – DC – Georgia Tech Size – 5107v – 189v – 4.49 (Est) Strong Points – Three year starter. Good athlete with good hips, quick feet and a quick turn. Has a good jam and shows he can play press. Has awareness in zone. Good ball skills and comes out of his pedal with good quickness. Willing run support player who can tackle. Team Captain. Weak Points – His play fell off in 2015 after looking like a top prospect in 2014. Can give too much cushion in off coverage. Lacks elite speed. Summation – Looking at 2014 tape, he looked like he could become a premium round prospect with a solid 2015. For some reason his play fell off and he didn’t play with the same sense of urgency. Has some traits that show he can play in the NFL. He is quick and sudden and can be physical. Has a good jam and can play press, off and zone. He is reliable in run support. Will be a Day 3 selection and come in and contribute on special teams. Doubt he will ever be a starter.   William Jackson III – DC – Houston Size – 6002 – 184 – 4.48 (All Estimates) Strong Points – Has the height and length that NFL coaches love at corner. Has good play speed with a burst. Smooth athlete who can pedal, turn and transition. Capable press and zone cover guy with good awareness and tracks the ball very well. Weak Points – Lean frame and needs to add some bulk and strength. More of a grab tackler. Because of his size he is not a consistent force against the run. Summation – William is still a work in progress but he has what can’t be taught…height, length and speed. His height, cover skills and ball reactions will get him drafted before the fourth round begins. Going to have to add strength and bulk to get on the field. Should be able to contribute as a third or fourth corner as a rookie but won’t start until he gets bigger and stronger. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
