Overview:

Elder was productive at Miami, where he posted 158 tackles, 11.5 for loss, 3 interceptions, and 27 pass breakups. Elder has great speed, is good in coverage, is a sure fire tackler, and a play maker in the secondary. He also is a good blitzing cornerback, and very helpful on special teams as a returner. He however, is a bit undersized, is not known for getting many interceptions, and he gets run over by big backs when at the line of scrimmage at times. With that said, Elder should be picked somewhere on day 3.
