Happy for Rhodes. I think he will be EXCELLENT for a team that plays a Cover 2....or he can make the transition to FS like Antrel Rolle.
Either way this will be a hell of a draft for FSU and shows the caliber of players Jimbo is bringing in.
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State: It is hard to find corners with size, speed and athleticism, which is why Rhodes' impressive combine workout has scouts salivating. Rhodes measured in at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds and posted a 4.43-second 40-yard dash, answering any questions about his top-end speed and likely solidifying his status as a mid-first-round selection. Additionally, Rhodes logged 14 reps on the bench press while posting a 40.5-inch vertical jump and an 11-0 broad jump. Factor in his solid display of movement skills in positional drills and Rhodes becomes an intriguing "shutdown" corner candidate on most draft boards across the league.
Dee Milliner came to the NFL Scouting Combine with plenty of hype, while Desmond Trufant was seen as a fringe first-round pick. How did they do on the field? Bucky Brooks runs through the DBs.
