2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Phillip Gaines, CB , Rice
Very clean and smooth footwork. Plenty of experience in both man and zone coverages. Ran really well at the combine. Willing to scrap when in press man coverage. Elite ability to get his hands on the ball for INTs or pass break-ups. Times his jumps very well and can contort his body to disrupt the reception. Average run support. Tough enough but lack the ability to cleanly wrap up. Needs to add more strength.
Flips hips quickly when in transition. Above-average quickness in short areas. Good feel for receivers when in zone. Could be a little quicker breaking out of his back-pedal.
Gaines projects as a late second to third round option in the 2014 NFL Draft.
