Randy Phillips Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'0 - 208 lbs.|
2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Randy Phillips, CB, Miami
Randy Phillips started his career at Miami as the team's nickel and dime back as a freshman. The next year he began the year as a starter at corner, lost it and got it back for the final five games of the season. Despite not starting the entire season, Phillips still ranked second on the team with 11 pass deflections and tallied 30 tackles. It was not until the third game of the 2007 season that Phillips moved to safety. Phillips only started four games in 2007 and he still has a lot to prove in 2008, but the 6-0, 208 pound Belle Glade, Florida native has the tools to play corner in the NFL. His versatility to play just about any position in the defensive back four is also a big plus. If Phillips has a big year in 2008, he could quickly fly up the draft boards. His lack of major production at Miami is a concern, but the NFL will look past that if he grades out well at the combine and shows that he can be a leader of the Hurricanes' secondary in 2008. But if his senior season does not go too well, Phillips will find it difficult to make a big impression and be anywhere near the top defensive backs in his class. 11/24 Update: So, Phillips' senior year has not gone well. He has only played in two games and garnered two tackles. That will put Phillips out of any serious draft consideration. He is still a solid athlete who can put some injury issues behind him and get drafted at some point, but it will not be on day one of the draft.
