5'9, 185 pounds | South Carolina | Cornerback
Strengths: Munnerlyn is an incredibly fast cornerback who has run with any receiver. Excellent agility with loose hips. Experienced in zone coverage, even though his skill set would suggest he's a better fit for a man scheme. Deceptively strong. Can reroute receivers near the sidelines. A solid tackler for a cornerback. Wraps up nicely. Likes to hit. Will support in the run game and does a pretty decent job getting off blockers. Forces fumbles. Solid in the return game.
Weaknesses: Munnerlyn's biggest drawback is his height. He can be taken advantage of by just about receiver six feet or taller. Because of his short stature, he might be nickel back only in the pros. Had durability issues each of his three seasons in college. Needs to be more consistent with his backpedal. Will lose a step or two by staying too high.
Final word: In 2008, opposing teams rarely threw in Munnderlyn's direction. Still, he decided to enter the draft to help his ailing mother. Had he returned for his senior year, he could have solidified himself as a first-day pick. Instead, he's somewhere in the mix of corners who will go in the late second or early third round. Started in 28 games in three seasons at South Carolina.
Round projection: 3
