NFL Combine: Mel Kiper On Corners With Something To Gain

New, comments

Although he talks about a lot of players in his combine preview, I wanted to highlight specifically what Mel Kiper had to say about the corners that he thinks could get a boost in Indy this week at the combine.

He has Aaron Williams (CB, Texas) in his "make the leap" category as a guy who could make himself a first round pick with a good combine.

"A really aggressive corner, Williams has a reputation as a playmaker, but also a risk-taker who trusts his gut as much as his technique. Scouts who see a great technical performance might be more enthusiastic about making Williams the third or fourth corner off the board late in Round 1."

He also has two corners in his "aiming for a big jump" category, which looks at guys who could really make a name for themselves at the combine.

Brandon Burton, CB, Utah
That school has turned out some talent from the defensive backfield, and Burton could run his way into the mix to be among the top five corners drafted.

Cortez Allen, CB, The Citadel
Buried way down on many lists of top corners, Allen has a chance to jump into the mix like former teammate Andre Roberts did last year.
