Mario Butler Scouting Report
Mario Butler
Mario Butler - Georgia Tech (HT: 6-0⅛ - WT: 182)
Combine 40: 4.66 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 32 of 45

Positives: Has above-average height... Instincts are pretty good for the position, has solid route-recognition skills, does a good job reading quarterbacks' eyes in zone coverage... Has above-average flexibility and change-of-direction ability, looks pretty fluid for a corner with his height... Ball skills are pretty solid, displays pretty good hands are rarely drops the sure pick, will go up and get after the ball at its highest point... Durability is not a concern, did not miss any time from injury in college.

Negatives: Is a little thin for his height, needs to add 10-15 pounds of bulk to be more effective in run support... Never had great statistical seasons at GT, only recorded 137 tackles and four interceptions in three seasons as a starter... Gets too upright in his backpedal, footwork is not as good as hip fluidity at this point... Not a very sure tackler, tackling technique is not where it needs to be if he is to be a run-stopping threat in the NFL... Was not a playmaker in college, did not make the kind of game-breaking plays teams look for on film... Ran very poorly at the combine, needed a faster 40-time to help his draft stock, will likely fall down a lot of draft boards as a result.
