Corn Elder-DB-Miami (FL)
Size: 5’10 183lbs

Corn Elder

Strengths:

  • Physical corner
  • Confident
  • Can play multiple coverages
  • Plus instincts
  • Footwork

Analysis: Corn Elder came to the Hurricanes as a star running back, but switched to the defensive side of the ball and he has been a force ever since. Despite his lack of size, Elder doesn’t play like it. He is a physical corner who will get right into the WR’s face and jam him at the line.¬†Sinks into receivers on outside release constricting the vertical throwing window. Plays variety of coverages and squeezes routes in all. Former high school basketball star with point guard quickness and little hesitation in his transitions. Twitchy click-and-close to the ball. Plus instincts and ready to pounce on throws from zone. Aggressive in run support striking through his target and running his feet through completion. Doesn’t realize he’s undersized.

Weaknesses:

  • Undersized
  • More quick than fast
  • Some durability concerns
  • Lacks second gear

Analysis: Despite Elder playing like he isn’t under six feet tall, it will force him to the inside in the pros. Taller receivers can have a field day against him, easily plucking high throws away from him. He is a lightweight and will get “big-boyed” by bigger slots who play with good route strength. Quicker than fast. Lacking a second gear and will give up some separation on intermediate and deep routes.¬†Physical nature could create durability concerns if pressed into extensive run-support situations.

NFL Comparison: Orlando Scandrick

Draft Projection: Round 4-5
