Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned Second Team All-Pac-12 honors and led Stanford with eight pass breakups while adding 65 tackles and two interceptions as a junior. Made 22 tackles with two interceptions and six PBUs in 2016. Recorded 35 tackles, three interceptions and four pass breakups as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Nice-sized corner with a developing game. Big and engages receivers off the snap of the ball. Rarely challenged by opposing quarterbacks. Keeps the action in front of him, effectively diagnoses plays and competes to defend the throw. Stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks, locates the pass in the air and has a nice move to the ball. Runs downfield with receivers, reads their eyes and gets his head back around to locate the ball. Defeats blocks to get upfield and works to make plays against the run.
Neg: 
Doesn’t drive to the ball out of his plant. Often struggles to make plays with his back to the ball. Must improve his playing balance.
Analysis: 
Meeks possesses the size, underlying ball skills and upside potential to start at the next level. He’s one of the more underrated cornerback in this year’s draft and will be a steal starting in the third round.
