Overview

Intriguing prospect who stepped onto the field and proved an immediate standout for the Broncos, starting all but one of his 39 career games. Scandrick has reportedly been timed in the 4.3s by the Boise State coaching staff, and flashed the ability to be a standout cover corner in the past. He played with more consistency in 2007, showing more toughness as a run defender and a knack for blocking kicks (four in 2007). Some were surprised when little-known Boise State defensive back Gerald Alexander was selected in the second round last April. Scandrick isn't expected to make the draft's first day, but the middle rounds are possible if he works out well at the Combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Tight-skinned athlete with good overall definition. ... Good size for the position. ... Good use of hands and positioning to subtly re-route the receiver throughout the play. ... Good football speed. ... Reportedly was timed by Boise State coaches in the 4.3s. ... Isn't just a straight-line speed guy; has hip flexibility to turn and run with receivers. ... Better in run support as a senior, showing more willingness to come up and make the tackle than in the past. ... Developed into a formidable special teams star, blocking four kicks in 2007. Negatives: Struggled with consistency his first two seasons as the starter. ... Flashed the quickness and speed to be effective in coverage, but too often was beaten by lesser athletes. ... Seemed to lose focus at times. ... Clearly the most talented defensive back in a Boise State defensive backfield ravaged with injuries and inexperience, meaning he wasn't targeted often. ... Has never earned first- or second-team conference honors despite starting three seasons.
