Ohio State redshirt sophomore CB Eli Apple's ability to constantly be around the pass "portend[s] to a strong career in Columbus," notes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.
Apple picked off three passes last season while breaking up an additional 10. These numbers stood out to analyst Reuter, as well as the redshirt junior's size (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) and knack for sound tackling. His size is a plus-plus for the position and as Reuter's fellow analyst Lance Zierlein noted in mid-July, he uses that size to "crowd receivers as much as possible and play to his strength." A former five-star recruit, the redshirt sophomore still needs to work on quick changes of direction, as those can sometimes break down into big plays because of Apple's in-your-face style of play.
