year round NFL draft coverage... for the real fan

Alfonzo Dennard scouting report

Alfonzo Dennard CB Nebraska #15
Ht: 5’10″Wt: 205
Strong for his size; good overall build. Does a nice job turning and getting into position to make plays on the ball. Above-average straight-line speed; has the speed to make up for mistakes. Willing to mix it up at the line of scrimmage with bigger receivers. Plays a surprisingly physical brand of football for a cornerback of his size.
Undersized; lacks the height most teams like in their top corners. Struggles to match up with receivers in press coverage; takes too many false steps and easily gets beat – often makes up for mistakes with speed, but that won’t always be possible at the next level. More fast than quick. Not a very enthusiastic tackler; tackles with his arms and tends to shy away from head-on collisions. Ball skills are lacking; does a nice job making plays on the ball but rarely comes down with the interception. Serious injury concerns. Missed time with a shoulder injury in 2009. Missed time with a concussion in 2010. Missed three games with pulled leg muscle in 2011.
Dennard was a productive college cornerback, but failed to take his game to a new level as a senior. He has the skills to play at the next level and potentially compete for a starting job down the road, but he lacks the skills necessary to make an immediate impact.
