Rodgers-Cromartie had a solid freshman season, finishing the year with 33 tackles and two interceptions. As a sophomore, he had 41 tackles and a pick on the year. He became a real playmaker as a junior, picking off six passes to go along with 47 tackles. He was not tested as much as a senior, but still had 37 tackles and two interceptions on the year.
Rodgers-Cromartie is a fantastic athlete, excellent quickness, and very good speed. He can easily turn and run with receivers in and out of their breaks, and mirror them down the field. He is tall and has long arms, which should allow him to make more plays on the ball in the NFL. He is also a very good return man, and could help out in that area at the next level. There is some talk that he could project to corner or safety in the NFL.
Rodgers-Cromartie has a very thin build. He will need to bulk up in the NFL because he simply is too weak and too skinny at this point. Average sized receivers will be able to overpower him. He also relies on his athleticism too much, and may need time to adjust to the step up in competition.
Rodgers-Cromartie has always had the talent, but he blew up at the Senior Bowl. He followed that up with an amazing combine, and people realize the sky is the limit for him. He has all the physical tools in the world but will need to work on his game between the lines. His potential could make him the first corner selected, but he will be gone in the first 20 picks in April.
