Chris Culliver   #35 DB

Height: 6-0   Weight: 199   Age: 29

Born: 8/17/1988 Philadelphia , PA

College: South Carolina

Experience: 6th season

High School: Garner HS [NC]









Draft 2011

Pick No.80

Selected By: San Francisco 49ers

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 16 (80)

Pick Analysis: Culliver has the pure cover skills to eventually develop into a starter but does not display natural instincts and is not willing or productive in run support. Is versatile enough to play corner or free safety. Has the athleticism and speed to shadow in man coverage and the hip fluidity to turn and run but lack of route anticipation allows receivers to gain separation. Has the range to play the deep half or middle in zone but can be sucked in by play-action. Really needs to improve his ability to diagnose run and be productive coming up in support. Culliver's a mid-round talent with higher upside.
