Walt Aikens-CB-Liberty

Transfer from Illinois, freakish athletic ability, plays both basketball and football, a guy with a ton of potential, needs to work on his tackling technique but very solid, physical in coverage, terrific leaping ability to win contested passes, just all around outstanding athleticism and tremendous agility to go along with pretty good size(6'0", 200).

Saw him play against Old Dominion and he is very raw in coverage with his change of direction. He was beat several times on double moves and was beat to end the game on a fade route. He didn't stand out to me.
Basketball players typically make great tightends.

I wonder what the translation would mean for a cornerback in the NFL.

Would be an interesting project for sure.

For a guy that's very likely to be UDFA, I think he'd be worth a shot, so much crazy athleticism, just needs to be coached up.
Would be worth a late round pick to coach up on practice squad
Hello I'm Walt Aikens.... Thanks for the video but the information is not accurate on the thread and picture. I'm number 19 for liberty football .... Number 3 is Kevin Fogg the corner on the opposite side of me.

Thanks for posting that correction, Walt is even wearing 19 in the video so yeah the pic is definitely wrong. If you're not drafted it would be interesting to hear your take on the UDFA process and how teams try to sell you on their franchise.
Lol I can let you know about that when the time comes!!
Had a good week at the senior bowl. Did he get an invite to the combine?

Good call on this guy by the way Phoenix

The next potential Trumaine Brock?

I don't think he'll be a UDFA anymore. He really did have a very good Senior Bowl, he looks the part of someone that could be a very good NFL cornerback.
He's probably not going to time well at the combine and that may push him down, aside from being in a small school. He's tough to gauge as far as his draft round. He's in the tier where he could go anywhere between the late 4th and the 7th right now.

One of the biggest questions with him is his make-up speed.. His 40 time will be crucial.. If he runs well, I can see him being a late 3rd rounder
