Crezdon Butler
Round 5, Pick 164
Position: CB
Class: 4Sr
School: Clemson
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-11.5
WT: 191
40 Time: 4.43
Biography: Three-year starter who finished the season with 36/1/7. Junior totals included 52 tackles after 61 tackles and three interceptions as a sophomore.

Positives: Nice-sized cornerback who fights hard to defend the throw. Engages opponents off the line of scrimmage slowing their release off the snap, quick transitioning to run downfield and has a burst of closing speed. Shows a terrific break to the ball, aggressive up the field and willingly defends the run.

Negatives: Slow turning back to find the pass. Possesses just average speed and ball skills.

Analysis: Butler is a zone type corner effective in a smaller area. Can be used in dime or nickel situations at the next level, and he has experience as a return specialist, which will help his cause.

Projection: 6th
