2011 NFL Draft Profile: Anthony Gaitor - FIU, CB

Height: 5-10

Weight: 178lbs

PROS: Possess good but not great speed. Put up solid production, numbers wise, in college at FIU. Dangerous with the football in his hands in the open field. Excels in zone coverage and reading the quarterbacks eyes. Breaks on the ball well and tackles powerfully for a player of his size. Supports the run well.

CONS: Undersized for what teams typically look for in an NFL cornerback in both height and weight. Does not look comfortable playing in man to man coverage. Gives up a lot of cushion in coverage because he can get beat deep and lacks great recovery speed.  Gets high in his back pedal and his hips are stiff in coverage.
