Detroit Lions draft preview CB Darius Slay
Broke down some film on CB Darius Slay from Mississippi State, a combine standout.
The film were Auburn, Alabama, Texas A&M and LSU.
Strengths good athlete who can run with receivers. Decent ball in the air corner but does not have good hands. A great gunner on the punt team and contain guy on kickoff.
Weakness Not a great ball corner. Not going to make impact plays but will be steady. Not a great run support guy. Every team targeted him with bubble screens.
Bottom line: has a skill set to be a good CB in the league. He can run and shadow WR. Will contribute on kick teams and play in nickelor dime situations.
6.4 solid back up and special teams guy.
