2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech

Hosley has emerged into a force on both defense and special teams in his third year at Virginia Tech. At cornerback, he has 31 tackles, three interceptions, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble in eight games (all starts). Hosley is also averaging 11.1 yards as the Hokies' primary punt returner. Of course, people probably saw this coming. After playing sparingly as a freshman, especially on special teams, Hosley exploded onto the scene in 2010 with nine interceptions.

Relatively undersized especially by NFL standards, Hosley stands at 5'10'' and 171 pounds. The Delray Beach, FL native generally runs around a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.42 from that distance. He has outstanding hands and his impressive vertical leap can make of for his size deficiency in pass coverage. Hosley can get overpowered when he tries to jam bigger receivers at the line of scrimmage and he would also do well to improve his tackling skills. If Hosley decides to go pro, he could be a second-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.
