Porter showed off his big play ability as a corner as a freshman, picking off three passes and finishing with 22 tackles. As a sophomore, he had 48 tackles to go with three more interceptions. As a junior, Porter had 59 tackles and four picks, earning 2nd team All Big 10 honors. He closed out his career with 83 tackles, 5.5 for loss, a sack and six interceptions.
Porter is a very good cover corner, with all the talent to translate that ability to the NFL. He is a very good athlete, and has the quickness to stay with receivers in and out of their breaks. He also has the speed to run down the field with receivers and not lose any ground. Porter has also shown an impressive nose for the football, picking off 16 passes during his career.
Porter is a quality cover man, but he lacks the size to match up with physical receivers at the next level. He is going to lose out in one on one situations and it is not something he can really change. He shows some ability to help out in the running game but his lack of size and strength limits him in this area.
Porter had a big senior season, and may have pushed himself into the first two rounds. There is a lot of talent at the corner position this year, so his draft stock may ultimately be decided on when the run on corners starts.
