2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Robert Alford, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
Shows good bend and excellent loose hips. An ideal nickel corner who can handle the demands of playing in the slot. Great anticipation and quick enough in short areas to break on the football. Plays with a visible confidence on the field. Can hit a second gear when in recovery. Excellent burst. Plays light on his feet. Stays on assignment well and doesn't appear phased after mistakes.
Lacking ideal height and stature. Could afford to add strength from head to toe. Will struggle in run support and must learn to play a support role as a tackler by funneling the ball-carrier back inside. Breaks down and wraps up smooth in the open field while lacking power to his tackles. Can get dragged a yard or two without help from a gang tackler.
Not afraid to go after the football. Good leaping ability for his size. Above average hands and can challenge for more yardage with the ball in his hands.
Alford projects as a third round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
