2007 Draft Profile From Alan Ball - 6'1/176 - 4.50 (40 time) - Four-year starter who posted career totals of 62/1/11 last season after 55/1/5 as a junior. Tall, thin cover corner who plays heads-up football. Effective facing the action, works well with safeties and quickly breaks on the ball. Reads the action, displays a good degree of suddenness to his game and fast up the field defending the run. Not strong at the point, has tackles broken and loses out in battles. Struggles staying with receivers out from their breaks. A developing corner who.s shown a lot of promise, Ball is a late-round selection who could be used as a nickel or dime back for a variety of defensive systems. Undrafted Free Agent
