NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter posits that FIU junior CB Richard Leonard's return ability will amplify his intrigue to NFL teams.
The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Leonard missed 2013 due to academic ineligibility but has otherwise been a star at FIU. "Though shorter than most NFL teams prefer at the position, there's no doubting his foot quickness, closing ability and competitive fire," Reuter wrote. "His elusiveness as a returner should earn him extra looks." Leonard was a first-team All-Conference USA selection last year after posting five interceptions, seven pass breakups, four fumble recoveries, a 25.7-yard kick-return average and a 23.8-yard punt-return average with one touchdown.

FIU junior CB Richard Leonard has been ruled ineligible for the 2013 season.

Leonard started just eight of the 26 games he played over the last few seasons. He led the school in kick return (29.2) and punt return average (14.2). The Panthers lost their top defender in Johnathan Cyprien, and this ineligibility certainly won't help the depth.
