Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AHKELLO WITHERSPOON: Colorado, 6026 198 4.45. Two-year starter from Sacramento, CA. Spent one year at Sacramento City College before transferring. Started 20 of 36 games. Second-team All-Pac 12 honors. Solid combination of height, length, and speed. Fits the mold of the class of corners who can dominate with his long arms, big hands, and straight line speed. Very competitive, aggressive, and short memory-type player. Will attack the ball hard as if he were the one playing offense. Quality punch at the point of attack. Shows the right blend of aggression and patience. Can make up for a loss at the point of attack. Shows the necessary catch-up speed for an island corner. Inconsistent footwork and a loss of speed when tracking the deep ball. Needs to work on his transitions and backpedal before he can be trusted alone on an island. Height and reach can only make up for so much. Average at best tackler in space. Needs more discipline. Under the radar high school recruit. Started off as a 5-foot-8 junior college corner but then grew five inches prior to joining the Colorado roster. In his senior season, Witherspoon led the nation with 23 passes defended. The arrow is pointing up for this kid as much as any player in the draft. His tools and ball production were top notch all season and there are plenty of reasons to believe his upside is through the roof. As long he takes in NFL coaching and improves his techniques, Witherspoon is headed towards becoming a household name. 2016 stats: 24 T, 1 FF, 23 PBU, 1 INT. BTR:left 5.20, right 5.12. OSR:9/ 35. Third/fourth round. (A-33, H-9 7/8, VJ-40.5, SS-4.13).
