Rasul Douglas

Strengths:

  • Tall, great length
  • Reads QB’s well
  • Great in zone coverage
  • Solid ball skills
  • Route recognition

Analysis: Rasul Douglas is tall, sporting an angular frame with good overall length. Personally, I love tall, lengthy corners in the NFL—they are matchup nightmares and can make even the best WR’s uncomfortable. He is very aware from zone coverage. Will roll out of his coverage area and overlap in order to make a play. Reads quarterbacks drops and will break early to race ahead of slants and make a play on the throw. Finisher when the ball is there to be had and flashed ball skills of a pro. Plays with strong hands. Able to go up high and win the 50-50 balls and needs very little time to have hands interception-ready. Good recognition of route combinations and will shift from pattern to pattern.

Weaknesses:

  • Plays too upright
  • Average speed
  • Inconsistent tackler
  • Scheme fits

Analysis: You know Rasul Douglas is tall as soon as you put on his tape—that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing either. Matching up on a WR, Douglas is too upright coming off the snap in his backpedal,¬†which affects his balance and transition quickness. Very average in his pattern matching and has below average closing burst to the ball. Won’t be able to match quick-footed receivers from press coverage. Athletic and coverage limitations could limit his scheme fits. Doesn’t have the downfield juice to stick with burners on go routes. Makeup speed is below average. Inconsistent hitter who may lack necessary aggressiveness as tackler to project to safety. Defaults to arm tackles.

NFL Comparison: Brandon Browner

Draft Projection: Round 4
