NFL.com published an article this week with pro comparisons and team analysis for the top cornerback prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft.
NFL network analysis expert Cynthia Frelund uses her contextual data models to assess some of the best prospect drafts and notes that the goal of her compositions is to “show some of the strengths, weaknesses and unknown aspects of the CV for each prospect, while providing perspective to approximate how team analysis departments might view the player’s potential impact on the NFL.
His comp for former Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth Jr. is former NFL corner Aqib Talib, a five-time Pro Bowler who won Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos.
Talib played collegiately at Kansas, where he was a consensus All-American.
“Computer Vision sees many similarities between Booth’s Clemson movie and Talib’s Kansas movie,” Frelund wrote. “Among all the cornering prospects in my sample of 20 seasons, both rank in the 75th percentile for change of direction, quickness of stopping and starting, and straight-line speeds in the pads. According to Pro Football Focus, Booth’s 70 passer rating helped him rank seventh in the ACC last season (at least 40 targets), while his PFF coverage rating of 78.6 ranked third in the ACC. the conference (min. 100 cover shots).
When it comes to which team Frelund sees Booth fit in with, considering things like the personnel, coaching and strategy of each team at the moment, and just what would be a realistic matchup, Frelund suits Booth. , it’s the Kansas City Chiefs.
“AFC West should be a nightmare for defenses in 2022,” she wrote. “The Chiefs, who have a lot of question marks on this side of the ball, need to specifically address the cornerback position. Kansas City holds back-to-back first-round picks at numbers 29 and 30.”
Booth is expected to be a first-round pick in next week’s draft, which begins Thursday in Las Vegas.
Many recent drafts have thrown Booth to the New England Patriots.
