2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Omar Bolden, CB, Arizona State

Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden was an impact starter for three years with the Sun Devils. There are injury concerns as he previously tore his ACL back in 2009. With that in mind, he is a formidable player with excellent man coverage skills.

Bolden is talented enough to start almost immediately in the right system. He can play isolated on the outside and shows a great ability to bump and run. He's not quite as good in zone coverage, but he has enough of a burst out of his stance to make plays on the ball. Bolden isn't particularly fast yet, he can change directions very well. He's very strong in his upper half which will help him tremendously against bigger targets.

Rather than relying on instincts, he will peek into the backfield when in off coverage. He'll have to learn he can't do that nearly as much in the NFL. There will be some transition issues since he very rarely played the slot in college. Due to his strength and solid football IQ, he shouldn't have problems becoming a solid pro.
