5. CB Isaiah Oliver, Colorado
One of the nation’s premier ball-hawks last season, he’s got the 6-1, 195-pound size, he’s got the quickness to be used as a punt returner, and he’s got the ball skills to have broken up 13 passes with two picks.
The Combine is going to love him – be shocked if he doesn’t ease past a 4.4 and jump out of the stadium.
No, he’s not going to be the most physical of corners, and yes, he’s going to be a finesse defender – he just doesn’t have the body type or the bulk to do much against the run. But he’ll stay with any No. 1 receiver down the field and make something happen.
While he’ll probably go in the early second round, there’s the upside and potential to be a first round value get after the first 40 picks are off the board. one he hits the weights a little more, and with a little bit more time, look out.
