BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who moved into the starting lineup as a senior and then totaled 68/3/7 and was awarded all-Conference
honors. Played in nine games the prior season and finished with 16 tackles.
POSITIVES: "Well-rounded cornerback who's hitting his stride on the field. Plays smart football, displays a sense of timing and good
awareness. Possesses a burst of closing speed, and fights hard to defend the throw. Tough run defender who quickly comes up
the field or collapses from the outside to make the play."
NEGATIVES: Rough around the edges with his mechanics. Productive for only one season at West Virginia.
ANALYSIS: "A relative unknown prior to this season, Lankster comes off a terrific senior campaign and is moving up draft boards. He
possesses the size and ball skills to play at the next level if given enough time to develop his game."
