    BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Totals last year included 71/5/14 after 62/3/7 the previous year. Made a major impact as a freshman when he totaled 70/4/6.

    POSITIVES: Good-sized cornerback with a passion for the game. Remains alert on the field, diagnoses plays, and does an excellent job of reading routes. Engages receivers at the line, quickly locates the ball in the air, and displays good hands for the pick. Possesses an explosive break to the ball and quickly closes on the action. Defends the run and impacts the game returning punts.

    NEGATIVES: Stiff in his hips and loses ground when transitioning to run with opponents. Lacks closing as well as recovery speed and struggles staying with speedier receivers downfield.

    ANALYSIS: Cason is an opportunistic cornerback who.s rarely challenged by opposing signal-callers. He works hard in all areas to improve his game and is a solid mid-to-late first-round choice who could eventually start at the next level.

    Cason looks like a finisher... Of course these clips are his "HIGHLIGHTS".... Funny how nobody creates negative videos :) .....

    Can someone give me the draft run down (shockers, Highlights, who reached, who scored, who flopped) thus far. I have been in Corona at a baseball tourney with my son and missed my first, first round in a long time....Not to mention, my blackberry got *** bad service at the fields.

    Hook me up fellas.

    I still sorta have a problem with this pick because its not beef and this guy, at best, will not be more then a nickel back. i understand all the good beef was off the board, I understand there wasn't many/if anyone calling for a trade but still I don't know if Corner is truly the big need

    Yes he was. So were Kenny Phillips and Phillip Merling. Any of these three would have been a good pick. I'm not completely disappointed with Cason though.

    I don't know if I am bummed about Cason or if it's because we don't have another pick till the 5th. I was hoping we would of gone for Balmer. Hopefully Jamal will heal up good. :unsure:

    This guy is a stud, he was ranked as a top 10 guy not too long ago, but he got overlooked because he didn't have a freakish combine or superb senior bowl (Cromartie)

    Yeah, I'm not either, but would probably have gone with KP myself.

    Not disappointed w/Cason, just a little surprised. :yes:
