BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Totals last year included 71/5/14 after 62/3/7 the previous year. Made a major impact as a freshman when he totaled 70/4/6.

POSITIVES: Good-sized cornerback with a passion for the game. Remains alert on the field, diagnoses plays, and does an excellent job of reading routes. Engages receivers at the line, quickly locates the ball in the air, and displays good hands for the pick. Possesses an explosive break to the ball and quickly closes on the action. Defends the run and impacts the game returning punts.

NEGATIVES: Stiff in his hips and loses ground when transitioning to run with opponents. Lacks closing as well as recovery speed and struggles staying with speedier receivers downfield.

ANALYSIS: Cason is an opportunistic cornerback who.s rarely challenged by opposing signal-callers. He works hard in all areas to improve his game and is a solid mid-to-late first-round choice who could eventually start at the next level.
