Pros: Has good size and speed. Shows potential as a press corner.
Cons: Not as physical as his size merits. Is not a good tackler, hits rather than wraps. Needs to improve his footwork and awareness in zone.
Overview: Projects better as a safety than a cornerback, but not as physical as you'd like for a prospect there. Started 41 games at cornerback, with 7 career picks and 19 passes broken up.
NFL Forecast: More than likely, he'll have to stick on special teams to work in the NFL. Has size you like, but lacks the quickness and physicality to really fit well at either corner or safety. For a team that likes its corners to press a lot, he might have a shot of working on defense. Otherwise, he'll have to try his luck as a dime safety and on special teams. And I don't like his potential there. Teams will work with him because of his size/speed combo, but I don't think has the skills to really stick in the league beyond a few years.
ATL Forecast: Trent might be worth a look for the Falcons as a dime safety, but he's not likely to be able to beat out guys like Harris, Hutchins, and DeCoud for playing time. Unless he could impact early on special teams, he probably wouldn't make the Falcons roster. At best, he's probably a guy that the team could keep around on the practice squad, but doubtful he'd make any meaningful contribution.
Value: Don't draft him, but somebody is going to give him a look in camp.
