PLAYERS
Carl Gettis
Position: CB
Class:  4Sr
School: Missouri
Conference: Big 12
HT: 5-9.5
WT: 195
40 Time: 4.69
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 48/2/3 as a senior after junior totals of 61 tackles and five passes broken-up.

Positives: "Productive college cornerback with poor size/speed numbers. Physical, mixes it up with receivers, and is quick up the field to help defend the run. Flashes on the scene, shows a burst of speed, and has good short-area quickness. Effective in zone coverage, quickly recognizes routes, and can stay with receivers out of breaks."

Negatives: Lacks a quick backpedal and is off-balance when moving in reverse. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball. Not fluid in his hips. Shows poor instincts at times.

Analysis: "Gettis was very productive on the college level but does not have skills that translate well to the NFL. Best facing the action, he could contribute as a dime back in zone coverage."

Projection: 7-FA
