It is hard to find a solid nickel back. Years ago, many teams did not take the position as serious as they do now. If you have a poor nickel cornerback you are going to get exposed week in and week out. LSU has one of the best nickel corners in the 2021 NFL Draft, in Kary Vincent Jr.
Kary Vincent’s father Kary Sr, was drafted by the New Orleans Saints as a big time wide receiver from Texas A&M. Vincent Jr. is going to follow in his father’s footsteps.
The younger Vincent was a four star recruit coming out of high school and was the 12 best player in the state of Texas. What makes him special? I am glad you asked, because the kid is a burner. He is a trackster.
Vincent Jr. ran a 10.07 100 meter dash at the LSU invitational, and ran the lead leg for the SEC 4×100 relay. Vincent is stupid fast, and can cover as well.
Vincent has been playing the nickel and safety position for the past several years. Heading into his final season, Vincent Jr. had 78 total tackles for 3.5 tackles for loss and 5 interceptions.
Many have Vincent Jr. listed as a safety, which I feel he can play as well, but I feel at the nickel he has more value. He reminds me a lot of Siran Neal but faster.
Vincent Jr. decided to opt out of the 2020 season and declare for the NFL Draft. LSU has struggled this year going 3-3 so far, but they had multiple studs opt-out like Vincent Jr. At the end of the day, Vincent Jr. is going to be a play maker at the NFL level. He is a freaky fast player with great ball skills.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes
Just a few years ago, teams would throw anyone on a tight end. They did not look at whether or not the player was a safety or a cornerback. They just wanted to stop a threat. Then the speedy tight end and speedy slot wide receiver came around. NFL starting looking for nickel corners that had speed and cover skills. Kary Vincent Jr. is exactly what NFL teams were looking for. A player who could cover and shadow a Tyreek Hill. Well Vincent Jr. is that guy. He is a track star with football skills. He will be a stud and a starter day one in the NFL. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
