2011 NFL Draft: Wyoming DB Chris Prosinski Picked 121st Overall To Jacksonville Jaguars

This pick of Wyoming safety Chris Prosinski was a big surprise and watching the NFL Network this was the first player that draft expert Mike Maycok did not have on the board.

Prosinski was the only consistently bright spot on the Cowboys defense the past two seasons. Both of his final seasons he had 100+ tackles, had 5 interceptions during his career as a Cowboy, and forced 4 fumbles. At his Pro Day, Prosinski ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds and 4.44 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. He measured an 11-foot-2 broad jump, a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and completed 14 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press.

This is the first defensive player that the Jaguars have taken, and Prosinski has shown the ability to play the position well in an above average Mountain West league and has great speed which will help him when he is forced to cover players.

Plus, Prosinski is a special teams guy, so he should be able to see the field in some capacity in his rookie year if he keeps up those skills. Also, being a speed safety he should be able to crack the lineup with the Jags nickel and dime packages on passing downs.
