Bad weight on Bradberry too....he's 210ish.

He's a long Corner who can press...and was beaten one time yesterday...by Sterling Shepard.

Bradberry, who played high school football at Pleasant Grove High in Alabama, initially signed with Hugh Freeze at Arkansas State, but his FBS shot quickly soured. Bradberry redshirted his first season, Freeze left for Ole Miss and both Freeze’s staff and the incoming staff led by Gus Malzahn saw Bradberry as a safety.

He measured in at 6-foot-1 and 209 pounds, with 333⁄8-inch arms, making Bradberry an enticing prospect for any team looking for the Richard Sherman prototype that has become coveted by NFL teams in recent years.

And Bradberry plays to his size.

Bradberry already has proved he can overcome the small-school stigma with his performance at the Senior Bowl. Now, with the physical tests in Indianapolis looming, Bradberry is out to show he has the speed and change-of-direction necessary to play against smaller receivers in the NFL.

Shows adequate overall awareness......Does a good job reading the QB's eyes and marking targets coming into his area. ....Flashes quality anticipation and route recognition to occasionally get an early break on the ball, particularly versus the quick game......Average recognition and reaction as a run defender......Good combination of height, length and fluidity.......Has more than adequate range carrying receivers down the field in press coverage......Needs technical work with his jam.....While he's loose in his hips, he does have tightness in his ankles... Flashes good short-area burst and has quality recovery ability due to speed and overall length......Adequate ball awareness......Shows good timing playing the ball and has the range to hold up in jump ball situations against bigger receivers due to height and longer arms (33 3/8 inches)......He has adequate hand-eye coordination and is able to finish when he's able to get both hands on throws.....
Not overly physical, but he will set the edge.....Can show more discipline....Shows good awareness and does a nice job of protecting his feet against cut blocks......Wrap-and-drag-down tackler....... His long arms provide him with above-average range to the secure tackle.

Bradberry signed with Arkansas State out of high school, but since the team desired him to move to safety during his redshirt year there, he decided to transfer to Samford to play outside. He's been a four-year starter for the Bulldogs, and was named second-team All-Southern Conference as a junior (two interceptions, four pass breakups) and the first team in 2015 (two interceptions, 11 breakups). Will he stay at cornerback in the NFL, or will teams ask him to switch to safety?

PRO DAY RESULTS
Broad jump: 11 feet

Well built with the size that defensive coordinators look for from NFL cornerbacks. Plays with adequate lateral quickness and reactive athleticism when transitioning forward. Drives hard to the throw looking to make a play on the ball at the catch point. Long arms with ability to aggressively jam and redirect receivers off the snap. Uses length and size to trap receivers against the sideline from press. Plus ball tracking ability on downfield throws. Looks comfortable in zone coverage with feel for routes that are developing around him. Rarely out of position as run supporter. Will use sideline as his ally against run and is diligent with containment on the perimeter.

"I'm hearing his name come up quite a bit on the road. Anytime a corner looks the part physically, he's going to get plenty of attention because those guys are still fairly rare in our league. Can he play? Senior Bowl will be big for him." -- AFC area scout
