Draft Rewind 2011 – Prince Amukamara – New York Giants

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about PRINCE AMUKAMARA: Nebraska, 6010 206 4.43. Two-year starter. Came to Nebraska as a running back, was projected to play receiver. Has experience in both off and press man zone coverage plus man to man coverage. Good foot quickness and change of direction. Has some hip tightness but is generally loose hipped. Fluid in his movement and turns. Good short area quickness. Aggressive and confident in press coverage. No hesitation on run support. Drives quickly on the ball carrier in front of him. Get them down type tackler. He does it all, wrap, cut, and drag down. Doesn’t shy away from contact. Good instincts. Can make up ground before the ball gets to the receiver. Very little wasted motion in his turns. Doesn’t lunge or overextend in press coverage. Gets to top speed quickly. Receivers rarely get separation on him. He runs their route and is always in position to make a play on the ball. Good range. Always around the ball. Catches the ball in his hands at the high point. Slaps away catchable balls. Competitive. Has short arms and small hands for the position. Did not record an interception in 2010. Part of that is the man coverage scheme. Justin Blackman gave him a workout in the Oklahoma State game. Will contribute on special teams coverage. 2010 stats: 59 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 13 PBU. BTR:left 4.77, right 4.92. OSR:8/34. First round. (A-30 1/2, H-8 1/2, VJ-38, SS-4.08).
