Ronald Darby #3, CB – Florida State

Having been named the 2012 ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year, expectations for Darby have been high since his freshman year, and he hasn’t disappointed. During the 2013 season, with 27 targets, he managed to not let a single receiver score on him.

A track star, Darby will blow up the 40 at the combine and has the speed to blanket any receiver all over the field. In addition to having the necessary speed, Darby’s fluidity allows him to be proficient both outside and when working the slot. The two areas of concern for me were his inconsistency in the run game and lack of turnovers (two career interceptions). Darby is the kind of prospect with the potential to be a value on draft day as he has all the necessary physical tools, and his flaws are correctable. His potential for a strong combine performance will keep him in day two.
