It's obvious when watching Floyd Raven that he's an elite defensive back. A physical cornerback, Raven brings great coverage skills to the table. Go inside for a look at Scout.com's No. 32 rated cornerback.

Name: Floyd Raven
School:
East St. John (La.)
Position:
Cornerback
Size:
6' 2", 180-pounds
Class:
2011
Recruitment:
Committed to Ole Miss
Scout.com Ranking: No. 32 CB

Scout.com evaluation: Floyd has the unique blend of a defensive back with a safety frame, with the flexibility and quickness of a little man that plays cornerback. He almost reminds us of an Eric Berry in that he's 6-foot-2 (measured at 6' 2" at 15 years old at the Scout combine in New Orleans) and has elite cover skills. If you watch his film closely, he plays very physical and wraps you up. He's also a very good open-field tackler.

Another trait of Raven's is that he's a ball hawk. He makes plays while the ball is in the air and possesses good hands and uses his eyes to turn back to find the ball while in coverage. Overall, Raven is a highly-skilled athlete with a body that all corners yearn for.
