Texas senior CB Quandre Diggs "should hear his name called" in the 2015 NFL Draft, writes CBS Sports analyst Dane Brugler.
The Longhorns have sent many DBs to the NFL, most recently Kenny Vaccaro and Earl Thomas, but they were completely shut out in the 2014 draft. College football doesn't return many players more experienced than the 5-foot-10, 200-pound Diggs, who has started 36 games in his career. He can play outside, or man the slot. "Diggs has good, not great, size and speed for the position and shows natural field and ball awareness, keeping his head on a swivel and his anticipating route combinations," wrote Brugler. "At times he doesn't have the lower body burst to break on the ball in time and clearly lacks quick-twitch movements, but he plays the game with a veteran sense, leading the team last season in passes defended (10) despite no interceptions. He isn't the first round caliber player like Vaccarro or Thomas, but he has NFL skills to work with and is arguably the top defensive back in the conference." Diggs is also a promising return man.
