2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa

Iowa cornerback Shaun Prater has mixed reviews about his long-term potential. During his time with his Hawkeyes, he was a productive three-year starter. His senior season showed a regression in his skills and he has slid down draft boards in that time.

Prater is an athletic cover corner. With the ball in the air, he lacks the instincts and 'quick twitch' ability to make a play for the ball. He does well to mirror receivers and has adequate speed to stay with them downfield. Prater does well to break on throws that are in front of him and will struggle to catch up with balls thrown behind him.

He is an average tackler who will need to work on his physicality and show a more convincing willingness to scrap with ball-carriers. Does not break down and wrap up consistently. Prater needs to improve his backpedal, although he is flexible and loose through his hips.

Prater can be a contributor in nickel and dime packages after a full year of development, though he may never be a starter.
