Wide receivers have made the switch over to cornerback numerous times, look at Richard Sherman, one of the best corners in the league today. He didn’t start playing defense until after his sophomore year at Stanford, where he had been a wide receiver his first two years.
However, what might be rare is a player making that switch at the highest level of competition. That may be what Temple Owls wide receiver Robby Anderson could do, as he worked out at cornerback at Temple’s Pro Day workouts earlier this week.
“I’m told he looked good in both receiver and defensive back drills,” TFY Draft Insider’s Tony Pauline wrote. “He caught the ball well at wideout and was clean in the defensive back drills. Scouts commented that they feel Anderson has definite potential as a next-level cornerback.”
The guy can fly too, posting 40-yard dash times of 4.40 and 4.46 seconds. Although Anderson is projected to go Day 3 of the draf,t if selected, his versatility definitely boosts his stock.
