Name, school Ht. Wt. 40

Darqueze Dennard, Michigan St. 5-10.7 199 4.51 Can mirror WRs in man-on-man. Good ball athlete who is instinctive and fluid and will tackle.

Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma St. 6-0.1 202 4.37 Nice size and ball skills. Has some stiffness and will struggle vs. quickness but brings KOR threat.

Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech 5-11.6 190 4.49 Missed final half of '13 season (abdominal injury) but a willing tackler and very good ball athlete.

Jason Verrett, Texas Christian 5-9.4 189 4.38 Tough but has marginal size. Good ball skills with great quickness and ability to shadow in man.

Bradley Roby, Ohio State 5-11.2 194 4.39 Has all the measurables but major character concerns, especially after recent DUI arrest.

Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Nebraska 6-2.5 218 4.61 King-sized CB in Richard Sherman mold; converted WR with limited experience.

Lamarcus Joyner, Florida St. 5-8.0 184 4.55 Played in all 55 games and started last 41 despite lack of size. Tough, works hard on and off field.

Phillip Gaines, Rice 6-0.3 193 4.38 Experienced 45-game starter with elite movement skills who could use a little bulk strength.

Keith McGill, Utah 6-3.3 211 4.51 Strong, physical, rare combo of size and measurables but 1-year starter with character concerns.

Bashaud Breeland, Clemson 5-11.3 197 4.62 Willing tackler who will sell out vs. run. More fluid than fast. Only 1-year starter.
