Darryl Skrine
Round 5, Pick 137
Position: CB
Class:  4Sr
Conference: Southern
HT: 5-9.5
WT: 186
40 Time: 4.32
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two years. Senior totals included 39/1/8 after 45/2/8 as a junior. Posted a career-best 48 tackles as a sophomore.

Positives: "Athletic cornerback who displays a lot of next-level skills in his game. Breaks down well, plays low, and is flexible. Quickly changes direction, fleet-footed moving in every area, and smooth in his hips. Loses nothing transitioning with opponents off the line, easily runs downfield with receivers, and has a solid burst to the ball. Fast running laterally. Turns it on in a single step and fast enough to recover from mistakes. Quick up the field to help out in run defense. Effectively diagnoses the action."

Negatives: "Gives a large cushion, which results in a lot of underneath receptions. Is a bit quick out of his backpedal at times. Tends to get high in his backpedal."

Analysis: "Skrine is a terrific athlete with elite speed and a great amount of upside. Still developing at the position, Skrine would be most effective in a system that uses him backed off the line of scrimmage. Should be able to contribute as a nickel or dime back during his rookie season and also be given an opportunity to return kicks."

Projection: 3-4
