Chris L. Rucker is a CB with good size, but he lacks the speed to be an impact player at the next level. His footwork needs a lot of work and he will struggle man-to-man with quicker NFL receivers. However, he is a capable zone corner. He has a good burst to the ball and is also a sound tackler. In order to be successful, he must play in a zone heavy scheme, or perhaps move to FS.

Scouting Report:


- Good height and bulk
- 30+ starts under his belt
- Physical player
- Good, strong, jam at the line
- Good awareness in zone coverage
- Active hands, will break up passes
- Long arms
- Closes quickly to make a play on the ball
- Gets involved in run support
- Gets off blocks well, throws receivers around
- Solid tackler
- Can be a good Special Teamer


- Lack of straight line speed will hurt him
- Choppy footwork
- Gets too high in his back pedal
- Doesn’t have the fluid hips to mirror quicker receivers
- Struggles in man coverage
- Doesn’t turn to locate the ball at times in man coverage
- Prefers to have everything in front of him
- May have to move to FS in the NFL
- Arrested and suspended for drunk driving

1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite
