Plays smothering brand of coverage. Thick through hips and thighs with power to manhandle slow or weak receivers from press coverage. Works overtime to stay wired to his man. Excels in trail coverage and has the the feet and feel to shut it down against comebacks or outs and swarm the route. Plays the ball with an attacking style and excellent timing to disrupt the catch. Has quick, bouncy feet with desired short-area recovery ability. Has no problem throwing himself into the fray in run support.


Average athlete. Gets tilted in coverage by good route runners. Shows marginal recovery speed on extended routes. Too reliant on his hands to corral receivers at the top of their route, which could lead to flags at the next level. Doesn't have the deep speed to fade his aggressive tendencies when receivers fool him with varied route speed and get over the top.

Bottom Line

Physical, ball-hawking cornerback who is at his best in bump-and-run coverage. Celiscar allowed just 35.7 percent of passes his way to be completed in 2014 and posted 33 passes defensed and seven interceptions over the last two seasons. His ball skills are no fluke, but his lack of deep speed and fluidity could limit his draft standing and force him into a zone-based defense. It's hard to get a read on his open-field instincts, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see a team consider him at safety in the pros.
