Pro Day: CB Chris Greenwood, Albion (Mich) 6'1 193. Forty Time:  4.34


A few months ago I wrote about a small school corner back from Albion College in Michigan; Chris Greenwood. He played in The Shrine Game and struggled with off man coverage. After watching what film I could find on him; his game is suited for a more aggressive press coverage. Greenwood is strong and physical; he does not play soft. A raw prospect who will have to learn the other aspects of the corner back position,has a lot of the attributes to excel as a slot corner initially, and develop into a number one corner IMO:

Size. Speed, Physicality, and Ball Skills.

Greenwood can also help on special teams by returning kicks. After the jump, Tony Pauline of SI, gives his account of the talented small school CB.

Another small school cornerback, Chris Greenwood of Albion College, impressed scouts as well. Greenwood, who was not invited to the combine though did participate in the Shrine Game, took part in Michigan's pro day and was one of the fastest prospects on the field. His numbers Thursday would make many of the defensive backs from the combine blush as Greenwood measured 6-feet, 1.5 inches and 193 pounds then timed as fast as 4.34 seconds in the forty, posted a broad jump of 11 feet, 2 inches and touched 43 inches in the vertical jump. He's a bit unpolished in his technique, yet is considered a terrific developmental prospect and Greenwood is getting consideration by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
