This is the guy I want in the 2nd round.

He ran a 4.3? How could he fall to 43 with that speed and great tape?



didn't do so well in the drills
Newsome struggled with injuries too. I wouldn't mind seeing him taken as a 2nd CB in the middle rounds, but his injuries are a serious red flag for me.
"He's got confidence. Excellent athlete. He has feet, hips, twitch. When he presses, it's an easy flip and run. The instincts are there. He's got excellent ball skills. He tackles good enough."

Played just three games in 2020 due to injury and his decision to declare for the draft before the Citrus Bowl. "Only negative would be durability," a second scout said. "He has missed 13 games in three years. Very disciplined. He went four games this season and nobody caught a ball on him. He's better than (Indianapolis') Rock Ya-Sin coming out. Very confident and self-assured. Money's not going to change this dude. Very low maintenance. He is obsessed with the game of football. He's a smooth and easy mover. Never out of position."

I don't think we'll go CB in the 1st, but if we do I think Newsome will be near the top of our list. Wouldn't be surprised to see him taken in the top-20.

Crazy how I was mocking him to us late 3rd early 4th and now he's a 1st rounder.

Easily my 2nd favorite CB after Surtain
