The 2015 NFL Draft cornerback class is an interesting group. Talented prospects like Michigan State’s Trae Waynes, Senquez Golson of Ole Miss, and TCU’s Kevin White are either thinner or shorter (or both) than NFL teams would prefer. Miami Ohio’s Quinten Rollins is gaining momentum, but he has only one season of college football experience, and some analysts question his downfield speed. The one corner who’s on-field game is fairly clean is Washington’s Marcus Peters, but after being booted from the team midway through his junior season, he’ll spend the next couple of months trying to ditch his off-field baggage. In the latest installment of our dueling scouting report series, Chad Dinkins and I went to the tape for a closer look at the top cornerback prospect in the draft.
