Greg Stroman, CB, Virginia Tech
Draft Prospect Outlook:
High-level producer at Virginia Tech. Smaller, twitchier cornerback who already has pro awareness in coverage and reacts quickly when the ball is approaching. Mirrors well in man coverage. Quality return skills. Potential Day Two pick. Could land in middle rounds due to his lack of size.
