He's higher rated than Bucannon that's for sure. Do not like Bucannon at all.
This. Not a fan and don't understand the hype around him.
Perhaps, it is difficult to find enough tape of Northern Illinois.
The level of competition that he faced may be a problem, but there are many small school players who have done well in the NFL.
He did very well against the big boys at the Senior Bowl as both a safety and a slot corner.
His statistics indicate that he has excellent ball skills and that he can tackle.
I think he would be a solid 2nd round pick.
