NFL Draft 2010 Player Profile: Joe Haden, Florida Cornerback

CB Joe Haden

Size and Statistics: 5-foot-11, 190 pounds. 218 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, 34 passes defended, eight interceptions. 2009 First Team AP All-American.

Strengths: Can read the receiver or quarterback and breaks quickly on the ball while it is in the air. Very fast, especially when closing. Cuts well, too. Haden's long arms can pop receiver at the line or reach back for a deflection. Very smooth when rolling into coverage or coming in on a blitz or run plays.

Weaknesses: The one time I met him, Haden seemed smaller than he is on the field. If I had to guess, I'd say he's closer to 5-foot-10 than 6-foot. I guess that could be a weakness.

Character: He came to Florida as a receiver, then started every game of his three year career at corner. Haden was never a problem and also offered to run the Wildcat last season as he was a quarterback in high school.

Where will he go: Top-10, as high as three to Tampa Bay or seven to Cleveland.
