…Jeremy Lane, CB, Northwestern State.
Carroll and Schneider continue the surprises with this pick, a speedy, raw cornerback from a relatively unknown school. Per ESPN’s Mike Mayock, Lane ran a 40-yard dash in the 4.4s, and had a very good game against LSU, which may have gotten him his chance in the NFL. Others are describing him as tough, physical and ready to compete for a starting job within a year of development.
Hell, if a raw, physical guy like Brandon Browner was turned into a Pro Bowler in under a full season of playing time, it sounds like Lane found a really good home here.
