2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Dwight Bentley, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette
He is lean and will have to add muscle and a physicality in his game if he ever has aspirations to cover No. 1 receivers. Bentley's future is likely as a nickel and dime corner, where he will line up inside and preferably cover smaller, slot receivers. He does play with a chip on his shoulder. Seems to understand that because of his speed, he can take more risks and fall back on his quickness if caught in a bad situation. Breaks hard and fast on WR routes.
Excels in off-man coverage, but cannot press cover well just yet. His fluid hips also assert that he'll likely end up playing inside and not outside. He's not physical in run support. Bentley does show a willingness to stay active and involved with each play but simply doesn't bring a lot to the table as a run defender. He's got good ball skills and will go up aggressively to force turnovers. Loves to jump routes and go after the big plays and interceptions.
