Deep Coverage

There are some rumors floating around that the Texans won't take Leodis McKelvin or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie or any other cornerback at 18. If that's the case, who else could they be looking at build the secondary? The names Reggie Corner (Akron) and Antwuan Molden (East Kentucky) have come up.

Reggie Corner

He's an undersized hard-hitting physical corner. He's not quite the physical specimen that Dunta Robinson is, but he's in the same mold. He's been the non-BCS Defensive Player of the Year and on the All-MAC team. He's had a solid career at Akron. He changed positions from wide receiver to corner. He became a starter as a junior and a leader on the Zips defense. He gave some good sound bites in his interview.

Antwuan Molden

There's a lot of varied opinion on him, both because he's a CB/SS tweener and because he's a small school prospect. Mock drafts have him going anywhere from high 3rd round to low 6th round. He put up solid measurables. has a video on him that's worth watching. He's got some real upside.

In Summary

The great thing about both of these guys is they're fierce hard-hitting corners. The kind of secondary that makes it dangerous to go across the middle or run to the flat. Either of them could be the next Fred Bennett.
