Per WalterFootball


162. Corey White, S, Samford: D Grade
I don't give out F grades on Day 3. If I did, this would be an F. No major big board had Corey White in the top 500. I didn't think he would even be a priority UDFA.
and found this:

Former Samford cornerback Corey White is considered an up-and-coming safety prospect by the NFL.
On the last day of the NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday in Indianapolis, White was up - 37.5 inches up, to be exact. That was his vertical jump. Only Vanderbilt's Sean Richardson (38.5) jumped higher among the safeties.
White also turned in the third-best broad jump among the safeties. He leaped 10 feet, 6 inches. Only Richardson (10-8) and Mississippi State's Charles Mitchell (10-7) jumped farther.
In other drills, White had a 40-yard dash time of 4.55 seconds and lifted 225 pounds on the bench press 15 times. He did the three-cone drill in 6.72 seconds and the 20-yard shuttle in 4.22 seconds.

Overview

White is an up-and-coming prospect out of Samford who has great size for a cornerback and could be moved back to safety at the next level given his skill set. He has been a consistent tackler and run defender. He could benefit from playing at the back of a defense and working toward the line of scrimmage to be more involved in run support than he would be from his corner position. He could struggle athletically at corner. Look for him to be taken in the late rounds as a project and special teams contributor.

Analysis

Strengths
White is very strong in run support, where he takes great angles toward the ball. He uses his feet to track runners and fit on them to make plays. He approaches ball carriers like a safety would, which bodes well for a position switch. White displays good athletic ability when near a receiver with the ball is in the air, but he can struggle getting to that point. All these skill sets combine to make him a stronger and more intriguing safety than corner, especially given his size.
Weaknesses
White is not a great athlete for the corner position. He is a bit of an awkward runner and can struggle in transitions. He stutters his feet through movements and in and out of breaks, which makes it difficult for him to cover closely in man-to-man schemes. He is a bit late in reacting to plays because of his slow footwork, and the same is true of his reactions when working in zone.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

Cam Johnson was projected as a higher round pick(3?), why did he fall so far?
