Draft Rewind 2013 – Robert Alford – Atlanta Falcons

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about ROBERT ALFORD: SE Louisiana, 5101 188 4.37. Three-year starter. Talented, speedy corner with return skills. Confident and competitive in his play. Good foot quickness, hip flexibility, and sudden change of direction. He can drive and snap off quickly. Good short area quickness. Impressive week of work at Senior Bowl. NFL DNA – brother Fred Booker played for the Saints. Smaller than ideal for the big corners who match up to NFL wide receivers, but Alford makes up for his lack of height by unique leaping ability. Has 10 career interceptions. Loose-hipped for smooth turns. Good position to receiver. Will battle for the ball. Tough minded and accepts the challenge to go against a feature receiver. Good ball skills. Durability is a major concern after missing the 2008 and 2010 seasons. May be relegated to an inside slot corner position. Could start immediately as a nickel or dime corner while developing as an outside corner. Should be a special teams’ workhorse. Rated third of all corners athletically at the Combine. 2012 stats: 39 T, 8 PBU, 4 INT. BTR:left 4.57, right 4.75. OSR:3/35. Second/ third round. (A-32, H-9 1/2, VJ-40, SS-4.23).
