Overview:

Conner was very productive at Ole Miss, with 193 tackles, 21.5 for loss, 2 interceptions, and 13 pass breakups. He has good size, good speed, is a sure fire tackler, and good in coverage. He is also a play maker on defense, has good instincts, is a hard hitter, and isÊversatile, as he can play safety, and outside linebacker. He does getÊmanhandledÊwhen trying to blitz, and is not know for getting many INTs. Also I am not sure where he is best suited at the next level, safety, or outside linebacker, or more of the hybrid S/LB spot. With that said, Conner is a day 3 pick to me.
