Kary Vincent Jr. CB/LSU
Even if the Cardinals go with a corner in the first or second round, odds are they’ll select another one. Byron Murphy is a good guy in the slot, but he’s not as effective on the outside. Robert Alford is a mystery given his injuries. And Malcolm Butler can only cover one side of the field, along with a potential CB1 drafted earlier.
And while Vincent lacks size, he’s a speedy player who could provide outstanding depth and ultimately develop into a nickel or dime back. Sort of like a Buster Skrine, who has made a living at nickel and dime back. Like Skrine, Vincent possesses a slight build.
However, he can be a playmaker, having recorded 4 interceptions and 9 pass break-ups in 2019. While he struggles with route recognition and coverage, his recovery speed will always guarantee him a chance to make a play on the ball.
Best yet, he can start off as a potential CB5 and contribute to special teams early before developing into a solid role player as early as 2022. At worst, he’s a special teams contributor and a potential return man.
