2020 NFL Mock Draft: Pre-Combine mock with Redskins trading down
If you look up the definition of raw in the dictionary, Noah Igbinoghine’s picture would be next to it. Well, not actually, but you get the idea.
Igbinoghine has only played a couple of seasons at cornerback. Before that, he was a wide receiver. But the Auburn coaching staff rightly thought that he’d be better on defense. And Igbinoghine has proven to be a great option on that side of the ball.
Standing at 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, Igbinoghine is a great athlete. He knows the ins and outs of being a receiver and while his technique at corner is still in development, he surely knows how to work in coverage. He figures to test well at the combine and his potential was showcased in his 2019 tape.
Despite being raw, Igbinoghine was able to hold up well in coverage in a tougher than usual SEC, at least from an offensive standpoint. That has led his stock to rise and if he tests well, he could cement his status as a late first-round pick.
The Titans could use some help at corner. Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson are solid, but Logan Ryan is set to hit free agency. And both Butler and Jackson get burned at times. Igbinoghine would add another athlete to that secondary and give them ridiculous upside. And even if he’s not ready to play a major role out of the gate, the Titans will find a way to use him.
