Redskins selected Clemson DB Bashaud Breeland with the No. 102 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Breeland (5-foot-11 3/8, 197) started 24 games for the Tigers, tallying 8.5 career tackles for loss and six interceptions. As a senior, he was voted third-team All-ACC by the conference's coaches. Breeland managed a 4.62 forty at the Combine and 34 1/2-inch vertical, the measurables of a safety. Breeland did flash press-man skills at Clemson, playing boundary corner and displaying good short-area feet. He improved to 4.57 at his Pro Day, but ultimately is speed deficient. Breeland has a chance to develop into a lower-end No. 2 cornerback or starting free safety. May 10 - 12:28 PM

Clemson CB Bashaud Breeland ran two forties of 4.53 and 4.59 seconds at the NFL Combine.

Breeland has been praised by many evaluators after he somewhat surprisingly declared for the draft, He offers nice length and flashes make up speed on tape. He is a fringe top 50 prospect on Josh Norris' board.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl called Clemson CB Bashaud Breeland an easy mover with good range.

Weidl specifically drew attention to one play against Syracuse where Breeland located a pass and high pointed an interception while trailing the receiver. Expect the Clemson corner to receive more attention as the process goes along. He might be the best "big" corner in the class.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah debuted Clemson CB Bashaud Breeland at No. 42 on his Top-50 rankings.

"Breeland is a tall, fluid cornerback with good recovery speed," Jeremiah wrote. "He lines up as the boundary corner in Clemson's defense. In press coverage, he uses a one-hand jam and has the quickness and agility to mirror underneath routes and the speed to carry vertical routes. In off coverage, he has plenty of burst out of his plant/drive to make plays on the ball." The scribe notes Breeland's propensity to gamble and think his way out of position, but believes Breeland's closing speed generally erases his errors. Breeland is a willing run defender, but he must improve his tackling technique.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl does not believe Clemson CB Bashaud Breeland will make it far past the second-round.

"Breeland has a lot of appeal as a prospect," Weidl tweeted. "Extremely long arms, easy mover (with plus) range." Teams will put a premium on bigger corners that can slow down their opposition with length and contend at the catch point. Our own Josh Norris prefers Breeland over Stanley Jean-Baptiste, a prospect who is more frequently discussed.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah came away from a game tape session singing the praises of Clemson DB Bashaud Breeland.

"Really like him," Jeremiah tweeted. "Good size, quick feet and fluid. Can play press and off coverage." Breeland declared for the NFL draft with one season of eligibility remaining. It was a surprising decision for a seldom-mentioned prospect, but perhaps Breeland was confident about the tapes in Jeremiah's VCR.

Clemson redshirt junior DB Bashaud Breeland will declare for the NFL draft, according to Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin.

It is a surprising name, since Breeland was not among the top names listed at the position at any point this season. The redshirt junior is not a longtime performer, starting 12 games before this season. He played in all but one contest this year.
