Scouting Report on Ahmad Blackby Mike Farrell - 07/17/2006
An excellent athlete who has good hips and can turn and run with speedy wide receivers. Black has adequate size for a cornerback, plays physical and uses his leaping ability, good timing and excellent positioning to make plays on bigger receivers. Heâ€™s very strong in run support as he gets square, locks in on his opponentâ€™s hips and tackles in good position. Heâ€™s also a physical hitter. Black has solid ball skills and gets his head around quickly. He could also play safety in college with his ability to read the quarterback and break on the ball, but his size will likely put him at corner.
