06/16/2014 - Texas' top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 5. CB Quandre Diggs, Senior...Over the last decade or so, Texas has garnered a reputation for routinely producing NFL-quality defensive backs, most recently Kenny Vaccaro, Earl Thomas and several others. The Longhorns didn't have a DB drafted last season, but with a strong senior season, Diggs should hear his name called next spring. A four-year starter, he has 36 career starts under his belt with excellent experience playing both inside and outside, often moving inside as the nickel corner on tape.

Diggs has good, not great, size and speed for the position and shows natural field and ball awareness, keeping his head on a swivel and his anticipating route combinations. At times he doesn't have the lower body burst to break on the ball in time and clearly lacks quick-twitch movements, but he plays the game with a veteran sense, leading the team last season in passes defended (10) despite no interceptions. He isn't the first round caliber player like Vaccarro or Thomas, but he has NFL skills to work with and is arguably the top defensive back in the conference. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
