Bio: 
Three-year starter who made 53 tackles with two interceptions and seven pass breakups to earn an invite to the Senior Bowl in 2017. Made eight starts as a junior and posted 26 tackles and 10 PBUs. Started seven games with 18 tackles, an interception and four pass breakups in 2015.
Pos: 
Developing cornerback with excellent size. Physical, aggressive and works hard in all areas. Plays faster than his 40 time and shows the ability to run step for step with opponents downfield. Relatively instinctive, quickly locates the ball and tracks the pass in the air. Stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks, has a burst to the action and willingly defends the run.
Neg: 
Slow reacting to receivers’ moves off the line and often plays catch-up with opponents downfield. Not quick flipping his hips and transitioning to run with opponents. Does a lot of face guarding.
Analysis: 
Yiadom displayed a lot of improvement last season and has next-level size, but he must improve the details of his position. He may need to face the action but comes with upside and is worth consideration in the late rounds.
