BIO: Missed the entire .05 season after injuring a knee in the preseason. All-Conference selection the prior year with 22/4/6. Saw extensive playing time as a true freshman, posting 19/1/2.
POSITIVES: Natural cover corner who shuts down opponents. Physical, sized well and jams opponents at the line, slowing their release off the snap. Mirrors opponents down the field and offers blanket coverage. Flips his hips in transition, quickly gets his head back around and immediately locates the ball. Aggressive in run defense and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Lacks quick and fluid footwork in reverse. Slow reacting to receivers. moves.
ANALYSIS: A junior who entered the season with high grades before his knee injury, Cromartie offers terrific upside for the next level. Will see playing time as a rookie if given a clean bill of health.
