Scouting Report
One of the key figures in Oregon State's turnaround from a 3-9 team in 2011 to a 9-4 finish last season, Poyer was a consensus All-American, a Pac-12 first-team honoree and a semifinalist for the Bednarik (defensive player) and Thorpe (cornerback) Awards. He started all but one game in his final three seasons for the Beavers and was a key special-teams contributor, averaging nearly 26 yards per kickoff return and over 10 yards per punt return. As a senior and one of four team captains, he tied for second in the nation with seven interceptions - including three in one game - and also had 51 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble. An outstanding athlete who was drafted by the then-Florida Marlins in the 42nd round as an outfielder out of high school, Poyer possesses excellent quickness in short areas and can change directions and accelerate with ease. He has great ball skill and plays much stronger than he looks. Although Poyer lacks great size, he matches up well with bigger receivers and does an excellent job reading quarterbacks to put himself in the most opportune position. Poyer was able to succeed in college with only average strength, but that could become a bigger issue in the NFL. With his lack of elite speed a concern, Poyer ran a solid 4.54 in the 40-yard dash at the combine, but he benched 225 pounds only eight times and had a 30.5-inch vertical - 10 inches off the top among defensive backs. Although Poyer has the football skills to be a first-round pick, average size and speed limit his upside and will likely drop him into the second or third round.
