Drafted By: Seahawks
4.95 ?

Draft Analysis:

  • 6'3" Height
  • 32 1/8" Arm Length
  • 220LBS. Weight
  • 9 5/8" Hands



Solid two-year tackle production. Will come up to support the run. Exceptional pro-day performance, clocking a 4.44-second 40-yard dash time at 220 pounds, recording a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and 25 bench-press reps of 225 pounds. Good work habits.


Only a two-year starter with just three career interceptions. Average ball skills. Lacks ideal range and can be beaten over the top (see Ohio State). Not clean changing directions, as supported by a 4.31-second 20-yard shuttle time indicating below-average agility. Ordinary eyes and anticipation in coverage. Will be stressed by the quickness of NFL slot receivers.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Height-weight-speed prospect who made a statement at his pro day and could command late draftable interest for his speed and athletic ability. A late bloomer, Pinkins is still learning the nuances of the game and could need to make a mark on special teams to earn a spot.
