Richard Sherman Scouting Report
Richard Sherman
Richard Sherman - Stanford (HT: 6-2⅜ - WT: 192)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 17 of 40

Positives: Has great size for the position, is a very lengthy defender with long arms, is a long strider... Shows good instincts... Does not allow much separation from receiver when making plays on the ball... Has the ability to make very athletic catches... Good ball skills, has great leaping ability and willingness to go up and get the ball at its highest point... Has some physicality, not especially strong due to thin frame, but is willing to mix it up with receivers and blockers... Played receiver first three years of college, had good production as a receiver, hands are unquestionably good for a corner... Recorded six interceptions in final two years at Stanford as a corner... Has very good body control... Speed is pretty good, not great, but has good recovery speed.

Negatives: Lacks a lot of experience, only played two years of corner in college... Hips are a little stiff, needs to do a better job of turning and running in coverage... Will get beat on double moves, will likely improve on this with more experience at the position... Needs to add a little bulk, appears to be slightly thin for his height... Will struggle against quicker receivers in the NFL, not a prototypical slot defender.
