What's the overall opinion of him? He's 5'8 185 which may raise some questions however he's had zero injury issues at FSU along with being a mean tackler. He played CB his first year where he did well but was a little over aggressive, he was then moved to safety for his sophomore and junior year where he did amazing. He's recently moved back to corner for his senior year.

Junior year: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qvLatt1gV98
Sophomore year: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fEgMmXj8H0c
Hard hits: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vS5CDetrcQQ

So what's everyone's opinion of this guy? I see a solid second rounder.

He is small no matter where you put him but the kid packs a wallop and is not afraid to mix it up, I think he shows good coverage skills as well, he posses great speed and COD to make an impact in the return game as well. Just ana overall fierce competitor. Think a better pure defensive player than the Honey Badger with somewhat equal play making skills.

I would take him early 2nd but I could see him taken in the first. His biggest downside is his size but he plays so much larger than it, that would not be an issue

Pretty much my thoughts on this. If I had to compare him to someone at CB, I would think he could make an Antoine Winfield like impact in the NFL.

Best case scenario: Antoine Winfield with the ability to move to FS later on in his career. I think he can be really good, but has questionable ball skills IMO.

Safety or Antoine Winfield type slot CB, IMO. Small but talented. Rounds 2-3

Bumping this up for my #1 FS prospect in the 2014 draft.

Joyner has great speed and the instincts + ball skills to play center field.

He can also be brought up to the LOS and play man up on slot receivers.

Such a versatile DB prospect. Dude is a stud.

Man, this is like déjà vu from the Trent Murphy post...

I freaking love Joyner. I have been very high on him for quite some time. I know he isn't as big, but I see a lot of Earl Thomas in him. His ability to read the play and diagnos it as quickly as his does is special. Plus as you said his versatility is just so valuable. I think he is going to be an absolute steal in the draft (because he will probably go late first to mid second) and like you said, stud in the NFL.

Great bump!!

He's going to be a great one, best defensive player in college football this year.

Best safety in the draft. Man to man cover skills, hits like a ton of bricks and great athleticism. Short but stout...built like a HB.

Like his play, but man, that size...I dunno. Sometimes its unfair, but some people just don't have the physical stature for the NFL, and I think this may be one of those times, despite all his talent. I think he'd maybe be undraftable for me if I was a GM, I dunno. I feel like I'd have to see him play successfully in the NFL for a couple of years before I was ready to buy into him as being able to succeed in the NFL (which kind of defeats the purpose lol). l
