04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Titans' picks: Round 4/115 - Coty Sensabaugh, CB, 6-1, 189, Clemson...Sensabaugh's game is speed, as he was clocked in the 4.3s and also considers himself to be a student of the game. There is an opening for him to potentially play right away in nickel packages either in the slot or outside. - The Sports Xchange
Coty Sensabaugh was a football, basketball, and track star in high school, as well as a good student.
Sensabaugh broke into Clemson's secondary rotation as a redshirt Freshman in 2008, and observed his playing time grow to starter by 2010. Stats were 5 tackles, 1 interception, and 1 pass defensed in 2008, 13/1/1 in 2009, 31/1/1 in 2010, and 48/1/13 in 2011. Sensabaugh also played ST coverages including gunner on punt coverage.
Sensabaugh looks like a track star, with a thin build, long arms, and high hips. During his senior season, Sensabaugh was given a lot of press man coverage assignments, and provided consistently tight coverage.
As an NFL Draft prospect, Sensabaugh offers quality man coverage skills, speed, and ST contribution. Hips are smooth enough for corner duty. A bit light for safety consideration, Sensabaugh makes a good effort to tackle, but is not a strong or robust tackler. Best fit in the NFL would be with a team that uses a lot of man coverage, initially as a back-up CB and gunner. Must get stronger for starter consideration.
Strengths: Very quick, fast, and agile. Is effective in man coverage, and can turn and run with most receivers. Decent in zone as well. Had a strong senior year, improving as the season unfolded. Smart, healthy, durable, and productive - top intangibles.
Weaknesses: Is a big high hipped and lacks elite turning skills. Is not particularly strong, and can get pushed around and chucked off by larger, stronger WRs. Not a strong tackler. Ball skills are ordinary, will face guard and not turn head around. Benefited from a superior pass rush at Clemson.
