Overview:

Myrick had a very nice career at Minnesota, where he played in 47 games, he had 93 tackles, 8.0 for loss, 3 interceptions, and 21 pass breakups. He has amazing speed, he was a special teams standout, he is a dynamic return man, is a hard hitting cornerback, and is solid in coverage. He is also a defensive play maker, a solid tackler, and his cover skills allows his front 7 enough time to get the quarterback. On the other hand, he is very undersized, he is not known as a ball hawk, and he missed 3 games in 2015 due to a rib injury. With that said, I see Myrick as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the early part of round 4, with a chance to making it into the end of day 2.
