Ahmad Black Scouting Report
Ahmad Black
Ahmad Black - Florida (HT: 5-9½ - WT: 184)
Combine 40: 4.76 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 14 of 35

Positives: Has played some corner in the past, is versatile enough to play some man coverage on slot receivers... Excellent production over the last three seasons (236 tackles, 13 interceptions, two sacks, three forced fumbles)... Plays pretty physical football, will be out-muscled in coverage, especially in jump-ball situations, but likes to come up and make big hits... Shows good leverage and technique when tackling... Change of direction and fluidity in coverage are very good, has good hips and quick feet... Instincts are above-average, is a heady player and knows where to be on any given play... Is a natural leader in the secondary, intangibles translate well to the NFL game, has a lot of upside and may surprise at the next level.

Negatives: Is a little undersized for the position, height and bulk are below average... Has some difficulty getting off blocks at times because of small frame, needs to do a better job of using leverage against taller, bigger blockers... Ball skills are just adequate despite big interception totals, does not pull off a lot of spectacular catches in deep coverage, is at his best when playing intermediate routes and reading the quarterback's eyes... Did not have a good showing at either the Senior Bowl practices or the combine, with size issues, Black will likely see a sharp decline in his draft stock.
