2011 NFL Draft Profile: Buster Skrine - Chattanooga, CB

Height: 5-9

Weight: 186lbs

PROS: Extremely fast corner despite what his NFL Combine 40-time says. There were reports there were issues with the timers. Very physical corner for his size with a strong upper body. Is not afraid to stick his nose in and come up and support the run. Very dangerous with the ball in his hands after an interception and returning kicks. Has excellent change of direction skills to compliment his speed and shows nice footwork.

CONS: Defensive statistics in college weren't anything special. Still more of a lot of potential type player rather than a on the field producer. Doesn't wrap up well and tries to lower his shoulder and deliver a hit rather than tackle the receiver. Struggles in man coverage and allows the receiver to get on the inside rather than force them to the outside in coverage. Will need a lot of coaching but has very good upside.
