Another known commodity in Houston was Virginia defensive end Trent Corney. When UVA was playing an early Saturday game, the TV crew showed a YouTube video of Corney jumping out of a pool, then another one of him doing it backwards.
"That's not all. I dunked a basketball standing on one foot. I also jumped into the back of a jeep, into a sitting position, just before the jeep took off," Corney responded when asked what other amazing athletic feats the Canadian had also completed.
Athletically gifted beyond nearly all of the Combine participants, Corney went through the Combine's measurement and skill stations with little problem and ran a 4.6 40-yard dash, which was top among the defensive linemen and all the linebackers but one -- Brown. There's little question that his athleticism is off the charts and he sees himself as a hybrid 4-3 DE/3-4 OLB. Consequently, one key aspect of being a 3-4 OLB will need some work.
"I think I've dropped to cover less than five times ... in my whole career," Corney admitted when asked what he needed to work on heading to the next level.
Corney is a bit Green Having had to backup Eli Harold for 3 years and being moved around a variety of positions over his amateur career is Trent Corney.
