4. Julian Love, Notre Dame 5-11, 190 (2)
Career Statistics: 176 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 5 interceptions, 4 fumble recoveries, 2 forced fumbles
Why Julian Love Is Here On The List: What do you want him to do? Do you want him to be the best ball-skill guy on the field? He broke up 20 passes two years ago. Do you want him to hit? He made 176 tackles in his three years.
There’s nothing diva about his game, doing just about everything needed to grow into a terrific starting corner. He’s not going to beat anyone up or outmuscle anyone for the ball, but he knows how to make a big play and get the job done.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Raw speed and athleticism. Everyone knows he can play, but does he have the tools to be worthy of an early second round pick? The 40 will mean just about everything.
Bottom Line: No, he’s not going to be the perfect workout warrior, and he’ll be underwhelming when compared to the more athletic corners in all the drills, but as long as he’s not brutally slow and lumbering, someone will figure out a spot for him somewhere around the 50ish range.
