Chris Culliver Scouting Report
Chris Culliver
Chris Culliver - South Carolina (HT: 6-0⅜ - WT: 199)
Combine 40: 4.40 - Position Rank: 18 of 45

Positives: Has very good speed... Has an athletic frame, possesses good height and adequate bulk to play the corner position... Versatility makes him a very intriguing prospect, has experience at every DB position and as a returner, is a good special teams performer... Body control and flexibility are well above-average, is a fluid player with quick hips and good agility... Has very good range, is a sideline-to-sideline defender who can handle a lot of deep coverage responsibilities... Good jumper, recorded a 38.5" vertical at the combine... Is equally good in both man and zone coverage schemes, will fit nicely on an NFL team employing heavy mix of both.

Negatives: Durability may concern some scouts, missed a lot of games in college due to a plethora of different injuries... Not an especially physical player, is not a very solid tackler, does not take on blockers with good leverage or pop... Instincts are below average, appears to be lost at times, needs to read keys better and improve reaction time at the snap... Takes poor angles far too often, will get out of position to defend running plays in the open field... Will get caught looking in the backfield a little too often, reads QBs well, but is susceptible to double moves and play action... Started his collegiate career at wide receiver.
