Trayvon Mullen was a big part of the Clemson Tigers secondary last season and had a big interception in the National Championship which helped set the mode of the game. He is a big and long standing at 6-foot-1, which is much bigger than most corners. He was used in a lot of press coverage in College and probably try to replicate the success he had at his time in Clemson.
Athletic, lanky, and quick are three words I would use to describe Mullen, last year he put all that on display. He does get beat a lot, which comes with the position at corner, but he was able to open his hips and use his length to make plays. Mullen uses his abilities well in all types of coverage, not just man-to-man schemes, where he showed promise in zone coverages.
Even though you might be wondering why Mullen doesn’t play wide receiver with his quickness and height, he struggles with making plays on the ball. He didn’t show great catching potential at the position and that led to him not gaining many interceptions in his career. Also, he does not have the ability to recover on some plays because sometimes he would get caught in complex routes and different schemes the offense would through at him.
Mullen would be a great guy to be paired up with the pro bowl corner Patrick Peterson, for both have athletic abilities that allow them to be great cover guys. His length, agility, and toughness shows potential, but his mental side of the game needs to improve making him most likely a 3rd round option. Which would be a third round choice that has a lot of value and potential.
