Projected 40 yard dash: 4.52

Projected Round: 4-6

With a name like “Corn” there’s a nice ring to add cornerback to that resume. Corn comes from the University of Miami. Surely, there’s one thing that will stick out for scouts. He is undersized. However, while his stature is not huge in the physical sense, he is off the charts athletically. Corn is also a great tackler with exceptional instincts.

Also, he’s not afraid to deliver a blow when needed. Elder may be a good fit to cover the slot receivers. Corn had a total of 55 solo tackles last year and 76 combined tackles. Additionally, he’s had three interceptions in the past couple of years. Finally, add that along with a fumble recovery and a forced fumble. Elder even had three sacks as well. Corn Elder could be a steal in the latter rounds. Watch him on the field this weekend.
