Longshots – Donatello Brown (6-0, 190), Daquan Holmes (5-11, 187), Raysean Pringle (6-0, 191)
The remaining cornerbacks will have to have really impressive preseasons in order to make the roster. Realistically, even if they make plays they’ll probably land on the practice squad.
Brown is already 26 years old and was only a one-year starter at Valdosa State. He did put together an impressive pro day performance, recording a 4.37 forty and 39.5-inch vertical. However, he’s only played Division 2 ball and will need to show he can make the jump to the NFL.
Holmes is also a Division 2 talent, but he’s younger (22) and comes with more experience. While his athletic testing was also impressive (4.45 forty and 36.5-inch vertical), Holmes made a lot of plays as a three-year starter at American International.
14 interceptions, 34 pass defensed, and a kick return touchdown demonstrate how many plays he can make on the field.
Pringle may face the longest odds of the group. The undrafted rookie from Southern Utah has to learn the cornerback position after playing running back and wide receiver in college.
He did test well athletically, including 4.42 speed, but learning a new position in his first year at a crowded spot is a tall task for anyone.
