2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona

Cason is the only shutdown corner in the offense strong Pac-10. He returned two of his five interceptions for touchdowns, showing his homerun ability (the guy is a defensive playmaker). Cason has supreme confidence in his ability and has no problem playing on an island and has done so starting in all 34 games since arriving at Arizona in Mike Stoops' blitz heavy defense. Cason shows very fluid hips and couples them with great footwork. He may have trouble pressing some of the big receivers in the NFL, but will be able to recover quickly due to his superior technique and footwork. Cason has trouble getting off blocks when trying to come up in the run game, but can combat that with strength training. He has the frame to bulk up in order to more effectively play press coverage and get off of blocks in the run game. Cason is an effective blitzer from his corner position. Cason had a good combine, showing good strength and pressing 20 reps on the bench press and showed good leaping ability and explosion. He answered questions about his speed, running a 4.49 forty yard dash. He also participated on Arizona's track and field team in 2006, competing in the 200 meters and the sprint relays. Cason has all of the skills necessary to become a top flight corner in the NFL. Cason will be a second round pick in the 2008 draft and with some coaching will be an excellent player in the NFL.
