Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DARIUS SLAY: Mississippi State, 5117 192 4.36. Two-year starter. Junior college transfer from Itawamba, MS. A big corner who led the Bulldogs with five interceptions and broke up six passes. Was well tested over the past two years by teams wanting to throw away from Johnthan Banks on the other side. Aggressive in his play and can run step-for-step with receivers. Challenged more in 2012 because of a poor pass rush. One of the biggest and most athletic corners in the draft. Smooth movement and quick feet. Good hip flexibility. Quick off the turn. Has a burst, close, and catch up speed. Good leaping ability to jump after the ball gets close to the receiver. Good range in coverage and pursuit. Good hands to high point ball. Physical in run support. A talented ascending corner who needs minimal developmental time. Will be an asset on all special teams’ coverage. Must keep working to improve overall technique. He has all the tools, but needs refinement. Will need extra repetitions in a complex defensive scheme. 2012 stats: 40 T, 6 PBU, 5 INT, 1 FR. BTR:left 4.31, right 4.52. OSR:4/35. Second/ third round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 3/8, VJ-35.5, SS-4.21).
