NFL Draft Report

By Joe Buscaglia

CB Conroy Black, Utah

Conroy Black, #9
5'11", 185 lbs., 23 years old
Miramar, FL
2011: 39 tackles, 4 INT (1 TD), 4 PBU
2010: 19 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 sack, INT, 3 PBU

- Excellent timed speed. Ran track in his time at Fullerton CC.
- Able to stick with receivers down the field. Good change in direction.
- Shows the ability to keep a receiver blocking in the run game out of his pads. Locks his arm and sheds the block at the right time to go after the ball carrier.

- Ball skills are of some concern. Has to play catch-up sometimes on deep routes where he's caught face-guarding. A ball that should have been picked off floated right over his head. Mistimes his jumps in a jump-ball setting.
- Needs to get more physical when he's in press.
- Only a one-year starter.

Special Notes:
- Turns 24 in October.
- His player bio with Utah lists that he can run a 4.35 40-yard dash.
- JUCO transfer from Fullerton Community College in 2009.
- Parents are from Jamaica.

Projection: 6th to 7th
- Black is going to need that 40-yard dash fact on his Utah player bio page to ring true to get himself in better standing for this year's draft. If he runs in that range, he can improve his draft position by a couple of rounds.
