Projected Round
2nd
Pos: 
Once-lowly graded cornerback prospect who comes off a tremendous senior campaign. Aggressive, fluid in transition off the line of scrimmage and mixes it up with receivers throughout the route. Plays tough, smart football and possesses next-level ball skills. Sticks with receivers down the field on crossing patterns, can stay on the opponent's hip out of breaks and drives to the ball out of his plant. Tracks the pass in the air, effectively times his pass defenses and consistently positions himself to make plays on the throw. Shows outstanding wherewithal and stays with assignments.
Neg: 
Lacks top-end speed and deep burst. Must be more consistent in his backpedal.
Analysis: 
Ya-Sin had a mini-camp grade before the season, but now he looks like a top-45 pick. He makes up for his lack of deep speed with technique, smarts and aggressiveness, and Ya-Sin could develop into a starter into a Sunday starter in the proper system.
