Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan

Donovan Warren came to Michigan with a lot of hype, and has finally started playing up to his ability. He was a solid performer during his first two seasons with the Wolverines, tallying 104 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 2 interceptions, 9 passes broken up, and 2 forced fumbles in 24 games. Those are good stats for most players, but Warren stepped his game up to the next level as a junior, registering 66 tackles, 11 passes broken up in coverage, and 4 interceptions (one of which he returned for a touchdown). Warren isn't going to be the fastest corner at the combine, but he has solid speed for the position. What's going to impress scouts is when Warren takes place in position drills. He has very fluid hips, and breaks well on the ball while it's in the air. Warren has a similar skill set to a young Darelle Revis and like Revis is great in press coverage. Warren has become a feared college defender, a guy who can take half the field away from an opposing quarterback. If Donovan Warren decides to declare for the draft in 2010, he is likely to be a first round pick. Donovan Warren has had a rough offseason. He ran a 4.59 second 40 yard dash at February's NFL Combine. He has always had outstanding technique, but this performance has raised questions about his speed. Warren hoped to put on a better show at his Pro Day in Ann Arbor, but managed to run an even slower 4.62 40 yard dash. The newly raised questions about his speed will likely knock him into the late second or early third round, where he would be a steal for some team.

Prediction: 2nd Round

I am from Detroit and grew up watching Michigan. Comparing him to a young Revis is obsurd! He is alright in coverage and could be a good pro. I don't think he's a 1st rounder at all. Randall must not have watched any Michigan games. I think he just makes this stuff up as he goes! Given, he didnt have any help from the other DB's, so I guess he is a little bit underrated.
