Explanation of Player Grading System

 

The Breakdown

Amukamara is a well rounded cornerback that has a very good chance of being the first corner taken in the 2011 NFL Draft. Excellent in zone coverage and off-man coverage, Prince understands the finer points of the cornerback position. Outstanding ball skills and not afraid to take a risk, but that can backfire on him. Amukamara received the highest preseason scouting grade from National Scouting, setting the bar rather high for his expectations this season.
