Overview:

Conley had a very nice career at Ohio State, playing in 41 career games, where he had 91 tackles, 1.0 for loss, 6 interceptions, and 15 pass breakups, proving to be a ball hawk, and a shut down cornerback. He has good size, he has great speed, is great in coverage, is a defensive play maker, and a hard hitter. He is also very experienced, and is a good tackler. He is not the most physical cornerback, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Conley as a mid-late 1st-round pick, where he will be an eventual starter for whatever team lands him.
