Pick Analysis: A star at cornerback and on special teams at Jones County Junior College, Lankster earned second-team All-Big East honors in his first year as a starter for the Mountaineers. His 68 tackles, three interceptions and seven pass breakups showed scouts the kind of versatility they covet. One product of this Mobile product's hard work was an invitation home to play at the Senior Bowl. Depending on the defensive scheme, Lankster could find himself a home at corner or free safety in the NFL.
