(USA TODAY Sports)

Strengths:

  • Technique
  • Can play man or zone
  • Solid jam corner
  • Soft hands
  • Return skills
  • Quick feet
  • Willing to tackle bigger players

Analysis: Vernon Hargreaves is the top ‘pure corner’ in the draft (Jalen Ramsey can play safety or corner). He possesses a smooth, controlled backpedal with ability to weave and mirror route progressions. Plays with outstanding body control and balance. He can play in either man or zone coverage, providing versatility to whatever team selects him. Vernon Hargreaves has quick, soft hands, as he posted 38 passes defensed and 10 interceptions over the last three years at Florida. Could see early kick or punt return action. Unwilling to stay blocked and doesn’t hesitate for one moment in run support and against wide receiver screens.

Weaknesses:

  • Size
  • Has gotten burned on double moves
  • Does not have ‘elite speed’
  • Durability questions

Analysis: Vernon Hargreaves has a thin, wiry frame that has some scouts worried on whether or not he could cover big, physical receivers at the next level. His willingness to take on bigger ball carriers for a tackle causes some concern for future durability issues. He is more quick than fast. Did not play his best games against elite competition (Alabama and Michigan).

Draft Projection: Top 10
