We needed to go corner here, as Sidney may not even see the field. Rasul will struggle, but has a LOT of really great traits. Rasul will have an opportunity to develop here

Nice. I feel better about the Barnett pick since we got 2 corners I like and there are still backs and receivers on the board I like.

Big corner, might as well take a shot. We needed multiple corners and we got them. Actually, for going "BPA" we pretty much addressed our needs, except RB.

I think he will be pretty bad this coming season, but has the frame to develop into an everyday starter.

Like the pick, value fits and hope to hear good things in training camp.

Big fan of this pick. He'll struggle some this year but the idea of Jones and Douglas long term is exciting. Honestly, I'm still rooting for another CB in this draft. Corn or Kazee as a slot guy.

Figured this was coming even before the Jones pick. I like it. Wouldn't be surprised if they take at least one more. Assuming Sidney can remain Healthy from this point forward back to back CB like Jones/Douglas make the Barnett pick even better.

Based on the description of his skillset, he sounds like he may be better suited as a Safety.

"Mostly played off zone, only pressed on 15% of coverage snaps"

...


"Douglas lined up primarily at right CB in press-man coverage"




Think So which of these scouting reports is wrong about that, and thus should be completely ignored? Laughing

Had him in my first mock... Here's what I said a few months ago:

Quote:
Douglas is a 6’2”, 200 pound CB who has played extremely well for a wonky 3-3-5 Mountaineers defense that doesn’t really pass rush…. So he’s forced to cover for longer periods of time (ring any bells?). PFF has him on their 2nd team all American list. Questions over whether he’s a safety or corner push him down


Some scouting reports from around the interwebs:

NFL.com
Quote:
Douglas is a zone corner with press and trail ability


PFF:
Quote:
What he does best:

Really good hands. Led all cornerbacks in this draft class with eight interceptions in 2016.

Solid tackler, missed just five of the 58 solo tackles he attempted in 2016.

Breaks on the ball well in off coverage. Big part of why he has eight interceptions and 10 pass breakups.

Good feel for cover-2. Gets good depth to discourage sideline pass and works downhill well in the flat.

At 6-foot-2 and 209 pounds, he has great size for an outside cornerback in today’s NFL.

Solid run defender when involved. Seven of his 15 solo tackles resulted in a defensive stop in run defense in 2016.

Will be coveted by both zone-heavy and man-heavy defensive schemes.

Biggest concern:

Scheme-wise he wasn’t asked to press very often, so is very inexperienced in that regard. Played press on 15.0 percent of his coverage snaps, below the NCAA average of 19.4 percent.

When asked to press, often whiffed on the jam or got beaten quickly off the line of scrimmage.

Can get too handsy with receivers downfield. Really struggled with too much contact at the Senior Bowl. Appeared to be learning just how much he can get away with at the next level.

Gives up position inside easily. Partly scheme related but also didn’t always close well on in routes and slants.

Timed speed of 4.59 at the combine was disappointing. Is long speed an issue?


Bottom line: West Virginia’s scheme certainly doesn’t help Douglas’ evaluation as an NFL cornerback, given how much he was in off coverage. He struggled when asked to press at the Senior Bowl, and has shown a tendency to be too grabby downfield. His best bet to play early is likely in a zone-heavy scheme, though teams who like to play press man coverage will covet his size despite the inexperience in that role. Douglas will likely have some teething issues in the NFL and he may be somewhat limited in his first year, he has the ball skills to develop into a very good player if he can fix those issues

Hard not to like that frame at cornerback, but he sounds like a big version of Al Harris... the Eagles Al Harris not the one that went on to be a half decent corner.

Al Harris wasn't bad for the Eagles. He just couldn't beat out Troy Vincent and Bobby Taylor.

Rasul is the perfect guy for us this year. I mean we will probably suck in coverage anyway but hey he'll make interceptions.
