Strengths Weaknesses

Russell is a good-sized specimen with the profile to match up with bigger, physical targets as well as smaller receivers who rely on speed. He is a willing run defender with NFL-level ball skills, leading the Irish in passes defended (nine) in 2013, the last time he took the field for Notre Dame.

IN OUR VIEW: After missing all of last year and taking a redshirt, Russell technically has two years of eligibility remaining, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he emerges as one of the nation's better cornerback prospects this season and top 100 draft pick.

Player Overview

After sitting out the 2014 season due to academic issues, Russell was cleared and reinstated by the NCAA to play for the Irish in 2015. And talking to those close to the program, he is "Mr. Motivation" behind closed doors as he works his way back up the depth chart.

11/23/2015 - Notre Dame's leading rusher C.J. Prosise is doubtful with a sprained ankle for the biggest game of the season, when the fourth-ranked Fighting Irish play No. 13 Stanford on Saturday with a college football playoff berth on the line. Cornerback KeiVarae Russell, the team's second-leading tackler, is out for the game with a broken right leg. Prosise has a high ankle sprain. The injury occurred when his left foot got caught under Boston College defensive lineman Connor Wujciak as he was being tackled in the second quarter of Saturday's 19-16 win.

Russell broke a bone in his leg late in the fourth quarter when he hit running back Tyler Rouse hard, knocking the ball loose with 70 seconds left. Kelly said Russell was scheduled to have surgery Sunday evening to have a rod inserted. Kelly said he doesn't believe Russell will be ready for a bowl game or a first-round playoff game, but said he might be ready to play if the Irish (10-1) make it to the national championship game. "He's one of those kids you hate to lose. He's given so much to the program. We'll have to regroup," Kelly said. - AP Sports
