Assessing new Colts CB Justin Tryon

9/6/2010

Many of you have asked for details on Justin Tryon, the cornerback the Colts acquired in a cutdown-day trade with Washington for an undisclosed draft pick.

He's 5-foot-9, 185 pounds and went to Arizona State and Taft High School in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was a fourth-rounder for the Redskins, 124th overall, in 2008.

I asked Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. for an assessment of Tryon and here’s what he said:

“Undersized, scrappy corner who can mix it up but isn't overwhelming physically in any specific area. Has the hips and speed to turn and run in man coverage, but probably has a better temperament for zone and keeping the action in front of him to break on the ball.”

Sounds like a pretty good fit for what Indy does.

On our Insiders page, Tryon is graded at 67 -- same as Kelvin Hayden and better than Jacob Lacey (65) and Jerraud Powers (63).
