Ellis Lankster is loaded with talent and would've been taken higher but has a troubled past-he serves no potential as a Gunner but does as a return specialist! One of these guys will be on the final roster and thee other is practice squad at best.
Round 6, Cary Harris, FS-CB USC, 5-11, 187
Positives: Physical at the line of scrimmage, supports the run and tackles willingly. SERVED AS GUNNER ON SPECIAL TEAMS.
Negatives: Average ball skills, durability an issue.
Summary: Good-sized corner with physical element to his game. Physical style could open the door for a transition to safety.
Round 7, Ellis Lankster, CB West Virginia, 5-9, 191
Positives: Competes for the ball like a receiver, attacks it in the air.
Negatives: Inconsistent versus the run. Character needs to be evaluated (was arrested for transferring and receiving stolen property - laptop computer - completed a diversion program and was suspended three games).
Summary: Caught some interest at the Senior Bowl. <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
