2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia

Keith Tandy is a mid-round project player playing for the West Virginia Mountaineers. He doesn't have big upside athletically, but does some things well and there is a base for him to build upon when he makes the jump into the 2012 NFL Draft.

He does best in zone coverage and prefers to open his hips up off the snap. He is fluid in his lower half and does well to change directions without losing too much speed. In man coverage, he does an average job shadowing his assignment through the route, but often struggles adjusting to the ball in the air. Tandy is sometimes caught out of position or he will take a sloppy hack at the ball. He'll need to improve his ability to swivel his head, identify the ball and make a play on it.

Tandy shows good physicality in getting after jump balls and in press coverage, but transitioning out of it can be a problem. He'll open his hips and lose inside leverage, which causes all sorts of problems as he attempts to over-correct through the route.

Fundamentals aside, Tandy has enough athleticism to be a coachable prospect in the NFL. He'll need to really buckle down and study his game, but anything is possible with a fifth or sixth round prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft.
