Prince Amukamara Scouting Report
Prince Amukamara
Prince Amukamara - Nebraska (HT: 6-0 - WT: 206)
Combine 40: 4.43 - Position Rank: 2 of 45

Positives: Great size and good speed, is an exceptional athlete... Is an extremely physical player, very good in press coverage and run support... Takes a very aggressive approach to jamming receivers at the line, uses a good hand pop to disrupt receivers' timing... Is pretty quick to recognize run plays and come up for support, instincts and play recognition are very good... Had a solid 2009 season (64 tackles, five interceptions, two sacks and a forced fumble)... Natural playmaker, has a nose for the football, plays the ball in the air much like a wide receiver... Is proficient in both man-to-man and zone coverage, an all-around cornerback with the size and speed to play safety as well, has a lot of versatility... Will make an immediate impact in the NFL, does a lot of things well and has never had any durability issues.

Negatives: First step is sometimes a little slow, backpedal appears to be somewhat sloppy when not in press coverage, gets a little too high in the backpedal, which sometimes causes him to be a half step slow at the break... Can be a little too aggressive at times when jamming receivers, will give up position by getting too high lunging a bit when in press coverage... Sometimes gives up inside position too easily, can be beaten by post routes by quicker receivers.
