Draft Analysis:

The Bills hit on another athletic unheralded USC corner in Nickell Robey a couple years ago and they hope to strike gold again here. --Mark Dulgerian

Overview

Seymour expected to pair with super sophomore Adoreé Jackson in 2015 to form one of the best cornerback duos in the country. In his second year as a starter, he led USC with 13 pass breakups in 2014 and intercepted his second career pass as well. The 2011 high school All-American earned that starting role as a sophomore in 2013, making 48 tackles and breaking up seven passes. Knee and ankle injuries cost Seymour playing time in his senior season, however, so he could only start four times in 11 appearances (24 tackles, one interception).

Analysis

Strengths

Plays with good recognition from zone. Easy opener to mirror down the field. Has burst and overall speed to run with crossing routes. Has sticky feet and can close on the ball with some suddenness. Special teams standout with 19 tackles over the last three years and eight this season. Might have value as a gunner. Plays speed is NFL-­caliber.

Weaknesses

Missed four games due to injury and was benched before the second game of the season and never regained his spot. Despite foot quickness doesn't make as many plays on the ball as expected. Has just three interceptions over three years. Can be big-­boyed by physical receivers inside the routes. Allowed entirely too much for catch­-and­-throw opportunities. Slightly undersized with herky-­jerky change of direction.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Seymour's lost playing time coupled with his injury issues do not bode well for his draft standing, but he's got decent size and quality speed and athleticism doesn't appear to be a problem. Seymour needs to prove he can be a more physical tackler and he might be better suited playing for a defense that stresses man­-off coverage.
