2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Rhodes could move to safety if needed, but for now, his height and physicality are his best assets. He is great in run support and doesn't shy away from contact. Great length allows him to contest well for 50/50 balls, although he isn't a pure ball hawk. If he does allow a reception, he quickly smothers receivers and limits any further production.
Not as aggressive in pass coverage and avoids getting beat on big plays well. Plays and sticks with his assignment well if a play breaks down. Average read/react when jumping routes. Doesn't explode to the ball, but can eat up ground to close on the play. Lacks in man coverage. He must win the battle in the first five yards and does well to use his strength to his advantage against bigger receivers.
Rhodes projects as an late-first to early second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
