Overview:

Prince Amukamara is regarded as the unanimous #2 CB prospect. Personally, I think he’s a little bit overrated. He’s a terrific athlete with great size and speed but his footwork still needs work. He gets too high in his backpedal and loses his balance at times. His ball skills aren’t that impressive and he fails to make a play at times. He’s got the potential to be good, but he still needs work on his technique and fundamentals.
