Senquez Golson (CB), Mississippi
5’9” | 176 lbs.
43 tackles, 10 INT
2nd round, No. 56 overall (Pittsburgh Steelers)
What scouts are saying:
"Golson has the twitch, ball skills and instincts to be an outstanding cornerback in the NFL. Despite playing so much zone in college, there is no reason to believe he can't transition to any coverage asked of him. He's well put-together, but his lack of height could force some teams to view him as a slot-only corner. Golson has Pro Bowl potential." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
"Gets himself in trouble when he turns his hips too early. Has made substantial strides with his technique, but still relies on natural athleticism over mechanics. Inexperienced in press, struggling with technique issues when jamming. Bad habit of freelancing in zone coverage, vacating his responsibilities that will result in negative plays." - Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com
