The Kansas City Chiefs have selected Georgia CB Sanders Commings in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
This is the Chiefs’ second consecutive defensive pick after selecting ILB Nico Johnson at the top of the fourth round.
Sanders is a Cb with some pretty decent size at 6-0′. He is also a former MLB draft pick.
Here is his scouting report from NFL.com:
STRENGTHS It’s tough for teams to find corners of Commings’ size and agility to play with ever-growing NFL receivers on the outside. And his outfielder hands are easily seen with his ability to snatch throws within his frame or extend his long arms high or wide to deflect away passes coming towards his man. Commings has a hulking frame, and succeeds in being physical with wide receivers, and pressing them at the line. Productive special teams player.
WEAKNESSES His footwork and quickness aren’t elite – receivers too often get inside position on him and can race by when he pauses at the top of the route. His ability to create turnovers and awareness in zone coverage need to be improved, as well. He also raised some character red flags when he was arrested in January 2012 for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in public. He was suspended for the team’s first two games this fall, and agreed to drug and alcohol testing and anger management counseling.
NFL COMPARISON Brandon Browner
I am not sure I like this pick. The Chiefs are pretty deep at CB with the additions of Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson. While Commings does have some decent size, he has some serious character concerns. I am not sure I want a guy on the Chiefs that was arrested for assaulting a woman.
What do you think, Addicts? Good pick or bad pick?
