NFL Comparison: Brandon Flowers

Coryell Judie is one of my most underrated prospects in this draft class. He first played football as a senior in high school and spent two years in the JUCO ranks before joining Texas A&M. Had a breakout junior season in 2010 that had scouts salivating at his potential but then followed it up with an injury plagued senior campaign. If he checks out medically, he has true shutdown potential. Judie is a great natural athlete that excels in off-man/zone coverage. He’s got great closing speed, fluid hips, great body control, and excellent ball skills. He has limited experience in man coverage but when he has played it, he often let receivers get into his frame too easily and his lack of length made it hard for him to press. With some coaching and technique clean-up, I feel he can succeed in a man/press scheme but his skillset currently makes him a better fit in a zone/off scheme, where I think he could develop into a Pro Bowl-caliber player if healthy. Judie also has experience as a return man and was very good in that role in 2010, returning two kicks for touchdowns. Some good fits for Judie include Pittsburgh, New England, and Detroit.
