Overview:

Witherspoon had a nice career at Colorado, where he played in 33 games, had 72 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 23 pass breakups. He has good speed, he has good size, is solid in coverage, is a solid tackler, a sure fire tackler, and a hard hitting cornerback. He is also very experienced, and a tough nosed player. He is not known for getting many interceptions, despite being so good in coverage, and he tends to get caught up with fellow defensive backs while in coverage at times. With that said, Witherspoon is a day 3 pick, somewhere in the mid round range.
