Strong Points

Two-year starter. Has excellent size with long arms to matchup against tall receivers. Very good athlete with speed and outstanding body control. Easy movement; he can quickly get out of his pedal. Turns smoothly. Plays the pass and run very well. Strong and explosive. Aggressive tackler, very good hands and ball skills. Very aware and instinctive in coverage. Followed up Freshman All-American honors with first-team All-American recognition from the FWAA.

Weak Points

Young, still had two years of eligibility left. Will miss some tackles when he doesn't wrap.

The Way We See It

A third-year sophomore, Humphrey was the No. 1 corner in the country coming out of high school, where he was also a track star as both a sprinter and in the hurdles. There may be some that are stronger in certain areas, but Humphrey's overall skill set rivals any of the cornerbacks in this class. Can shed blocks, play the run, tackle, play man or zone and has great ball skills. Will come in right away and start for most NFL teams. Has future Pro Bowl-type talent. A potential top-10 selection.
