Korey Lindsey Scouting Report
Korey Lindsey
Korey Lindsey - Southern Illinois (HT: 6-0 - WT: 190)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: 25 of 45

Positives: Has good height and speed for the position... Was a First-Team All-American in both 2009 and 2010, one of the most outstanding corners in the FCS... Incredible production in four years at SIU, recorded 14 interceptions including six in both 2008 and 2009... Instincts and route-recognition skills are above-average, is a heady player who understands the importance of preparation... Is a generally fluid player, has good hips and change-of-direction skills, quickness is a little better than straight-line speed... May be a bit of a project, but has the intangibles to become a smart and talented corner with a couple years of the right coaching in the NFL.

Negatives: Is a little on the thin side, physical player, but needs to bulk up to be more effective against blockers and large receivers... Not a very good wrap-up tackler, is more of a hitter than a solid tackler, needs to work on breaking down and forming up in the open field... Is better in man-to-man than zone coverage, looks to need some work on short zone coverage skills... Needs to be able to break passes up underneath because of lack of bulk and poor tacking abilities, will give up big runs after the catch if he allows too much separation.
