Cornerback continues to be a hot position in the Minnesota Vikings’ mock draft. Of the 52 mock drafts we collected, 23 of them were cornerbacks and 3 were draftwire Luke Easterling sent to the Minnesota Vikings in the latest mock draft Oregon He was cornerback Christian Gonzalez .
Possibly the smoothest covered corner in its class, Gonzalez possesses great size and athleticism to make him incredibly attractive to NFL teams. Here’s what I had to say about him in my scout report.
“Gonzalez is an incredibly smooth cover corner. He understands how to move with receivers by mirroring, trailing, and maintaining phase. The press is where he is most comfortable, but Gonzalez is also good at the zone.”
The versatility of being good in both people and zones is a big draw, as there aren’t many people-only defenses.
