Overview

Munnerlyn started 28 games in three seasons at South Carolina. He's blessed with a rare combination of straight-line speed and agility, plus legitimate cover corner potential. But his lack of size may force him inside. Recognized by conference coaches as a first-team All-SEC cornerback as a true sophomore, opponents rarely challenged his side of the field in 2008. His playmaking ability translated to special teams, where Munnerlyn established himself among the conference's best return specialists.

Analysis

Positives: Short, but has a legitimate NFL body. ... Rare straight-line speed and agility. ... Loose hips to turn and run with receivers. ... Good explosiveness out of his cuts. ... Closes quickly and gets his hands on passes. ... Soft hands for the interception and can high-point passes. ... Good body control to contort in space and make the athletic catch. ... Good returner with experience fielding both punts and kicks. ... Plays with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. ... Not afraid to mix it up with the big boys and is willing in run support. ... Reliable open-field tackler who flashes surprising explosiveness as a hitter. ... Has forced three fumbles. Negatives: Might be too short to play outside. ... Inconsistent. ... Relies on his natural ability and can be beaten with double-moves. ... Experienced in zone coverage, but his playmaking skills might make him a better fit in man. ... Has struggled a bit with durability, missing time in at least one game each of his three years. ... Missed time as a junior with flu-like symptoms, as a sophomore with a broken foot and as a freshman due to an infection in his right arm.
