 Overview

  Daryl "Buster" Skrine (pronounced "screen") has the elite speed and aggressive nature that NFL teams look for in the two or three small-school cornerbacks drafted each year. His inclusion in the Scouting Combine in February showed scouts' interest is more than a passing fancy.

Skrine stepped in at cornerback as true freshman, starting the final three games on his way to 23 tackles, two for loss and two interceptions. He started eight of 10 games played as a sophomore, making 48 tackles, two for loss, and breaking up four passes. In his junior season, Skrine made 45 tackles, intercepted two passes and broke up eight others on his way to his first of two first-team All-Southern Conference accolades.

Track speed is one thing, and Skrine showed that in his all-conference 4x100 relay performance as a sophomore, but translating it onto the field is not always easy. His ability to run with any receiver, and recover on the fly, along his kickoff return ability (40 career returns for 891 yards) and willingness to make contact against the run makes Skrine an intriguing late-round pick despite his somewhat raw technique and playmaking ability.


 Analysis

  Positives: Plays off coverage, press and press-bail. Has change of direction ability to handle nickel spot, as well. Generally low in his backpedal. Closes quickly and is flexible enough to attack plays in front of him as a zone corner. Willing cut or shoulder tackler behind the line of scrimmage, or even when engaged with receiver on a block outside. Good recovery speed, catches receivers down the sideline even after taking a false step on pump fake. Owns hand-eye coordination to knock away passes in front of receivers. Good vertical to battle for jump balls. Gives some kickoff return ability with good straight-line speed and enough elusiveness to make the first man miss to get to the open field.

Negatives: Only adequate size and build for the position. Lacks strength as a tackler, duck-and-swipe at legs on the outside. Aggressive corner who can be fooled on double moves. Loses his balance in transition at times, missing tackles and giving up too many catches. Only fair hands for the interception, needs to improve to be a playmaker. Allows too many receptions, as he gives a lot of cushion to slower receivers. Lacks great vision as a returner, will not bounce them outside as easily at the next level. Must work on ball security.
