Another small school cornerback, Chris Greenwood of Albion College, impressed scouts as well. Greenwood, who was not invited to the combine though did participate in the Shrine Game, took part in Michigan's pro day and was one of the fastest prospects on the field. His numbers Thursday would make many of the defensive backs from the combine blush as Greenwood measured 6-feet, 1.5 inches and 193 pounds then timed as fast as 4.34 seconds in the forty, posted a broad jump of 11 feet, 2 inches and touched 43 inches in the vertical jump. He's a bit unpolished in his technique, yet is considered a terrific developmental prospect and Greenwood is getting consideration by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe a 5th round pick?

Found a link to some video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGKz1NiEUrw

Depends on how much the Steelers like him I guess. If they like him a lot he could be a 5th rounder.

Thanks for the video too. He's clearly the fastest player on the field but it's hard to tell if he can actually cover or if he just uses his speed to make the quarterback think the receiver is more open then they actually are. Probably the latter...

yeah his workouts are nice ... but like steel glory said coming from a small school with that kind of speed hard to tell if he can really cover ...

It all comes down to work ethic with small school players as far as the steelers are concerned.
