Defensive back Leodis McKelvin may have started out off the radar a bit because Troy doesn't play on a national stage very often. But after impressing at both the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine, McKelvin is making a big move up Frank Coyle's list of the Top 100 prospects in the NFL Draft. Get...[details]
The Good: Hefney is one of the most versatile defensive backs in this class and played cornerback and both safety spots during his college career. He is a very reliable tackler. He has good speed. Hefney also has the savvy to develop into the quarterback of a secondary who could direct everyone to the right positions and assignments. He has a nose for the ball. He is very quick with his hands and feet.
The Bad: Hefney has marginal size for the safety position. He isn't very physical. He's strictly a free safety and would need to be paired with a physical strong-side defender. Hefney needs more development in the bump-and-run technique.
Outlook: This scrappy player is a marginal top-125 prospect. He might have to settle for a role as a fifth defensive back. The Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals are interested. Hefney probably will get taken in the fourth or fifth round.
