Video: Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley Interception Compilation Highlights

In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to the top cornerbacks in the 2017 draft class, I am currently putting together as many interception and pass breakup compilation videos as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Pittsburgh Steelers might select in the first several rounds.

While I won’t be able to track down every career college interception and pass breakup for every top player that I highlight in this series, I should be able to find a good majority of them for you to examine.

In this compilation video, we’ll look at Clemson cornerback Cordrea Tankersley, who will more than likely be selected somewhere during the first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Tankersley registered 9 total interceptions in the 55 games that he played in at Clemson dating back to 2013 and all of them came in the last two seasons. Additionally, he had 20 total pass breakups during that span. Fortunately, I was able to track down all 9 of Tankersley’s interceptions and as well as all of his pass breakups for you along with several replays of each.

At this year’s scouting combine, Tankersley measured in at 6012, 199-pounds with 32 1/4-inch arms. He ran the 40-yard-dash in 4.40 seconds. His vertical jump was 29.5-inches and his broad jump was 10’1″. Tankersley ran the short shuttle in 4.32 seconds and the 3-cone drill in 7.00 seconds.

    Why in the world are these QBs even throwing the ball? He allows zero separation, which is really impressive.

    Good job shadowing receivers, but a large number of instances on these highlights where he was either holding the receiver or draped all over them. Won’t fly in the NFL. That being said, if he can lose that bad form he’s got the skills to be a great outside corner. Good hands, good disruption off the line in press, showed some zone there, and quick route diagnosis.

    He is sort of grabby, for sure. But so was Burns, and Tankersley has some appealing attributes, as you mentioned. Really could see him or Conley being the pick at 30.

    Sherman is more than grabby as he practically undresses WRs. .thats why the STEelers should play more man taking advantage like other teams have been doing all along.

    Only a highlight video, but he seems to do a pretty good job of turning that head at the right time. Active hands contesting the catch mostly. Grabby and aggressive. Doesn’t look too skinny or frail. Goes up high with the receiver at the right time. Good awareness. I like him. Not sure if I like him at 30 more than an OLB, but if he lasted to pick 2 I could definitely be excited about him. Without looking at the profile, wonder how he supports the run. Is he willing?

    Corners don’t really tackle in college football anymore. I’d say he’s no more terrible a tackler than the other 1st/2d round corners.

  • Ace

    Yeah its a shame. Do you want a first round talent CB with great ball skills or a late round talent CB who can’t cover but that tackles. And don’t let Kazee hear you knock his tackle skills. Best goin.

    Another great Video, Dave.

    I really like what I see, instincts and good hand eye coordination.

  • Doogie

    Seems a bit grabby, but looks pretty good over all.

  • steelmann58

    i noticed his hands on the wr but he sticks with the wr andsome of the passes were horrible.
    that said would not mind him in the second

  • Guest12

    I really like that he has a lot of big game experience and seemed to be very active in them as well.

    Looks real good! Not mad at it!
