2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Patrick Stoudamire, CB, Western Illinois
Stoudamire is a four year starter for the Leathernecks of Western Illinois. He played in nine games -- started four -- as a true freshman in 2006, with 24 tackles, 14 of them solo, with 5 Passes Broken Up (PBU) and one Interception (INT). He was the starter for ten of the team's eleven games in 2007, posted a career best 41 tackles (24 solo), broke 6 pass attempts, registered 3 INT and forced his first fumble. Stoudamire had a solid junior campaign with 32 tackles, 23 of them solo, 8 PBU and one INT. He was voted to the first All Missouri Valley Conference Team following each of his last two seasons at WIU. He is an instinctive defender, quick and alert in zone coverage, and has the athleticism to handle man coverage. With excellent vertical speed (4.49) and agility that enable him to make something happen on the secondary, he is a versatile athlete who is capable of playing in various schemes. He also has good recovery speed and gets into the pile to assist in tackles. Stoudamire has the speed to handle fast receivers, but tends to give out too much cushion. He doesn't always play to his clocked 40 time, and is not particularly strong at the line of scrimmage or able to get off blocks. He must improve his ability to beat running backs' blocks when blitzing. He can also be grabby in coverage, likely to lead to many interference penalties in the NFL. Choppy and upright in his backpedal, Stoudamire has had problems transitioning on out routes; he flips his hips open too early inside, allowing WRs to get open on stop and run patterns. Stoudamire's size and quick feet are very intriguing. He lacks the flashy statistics and does not have the experience playing against top tier competition, but he boasts the natural skills and necessary attitude to at least be a reserve corner in the NFL. He is a mid rounder, possible in the later part of the fourth or early fifth round range.
