PLAYERS
Rashad Carmichael
Round 4, Pick 127
Position: CB
Class:  5Sr
School: Virginia Tech
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-10
WT: 192
40 Time: 4.44
Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 40/4/7 as a senior after 55/6/6 as a junior.

Positives: "Opportunistic cornerback who makes positive plays when the ball's in the air. Fluid pedaling in reverse, shows terrific route recognition facing the action, and battles hard to defend the throw. Instinctive, works well with safeties, and keeps his teammates alert. Jams opponents at the line of scrimmage and works to defend running plays."

Negatives: Lacks a quick backpedal and really cannot flip his hips. Does not always play to his timed speed.

Analysis: Carmichael has shown improvement the past two seasons and is a ball-hawking cornerback best facing the action. He projects as a nickel/dime player in a zone system and should see action early in his NFL career.

Projection: 4-5
