One of the prospects who's been climbing the rankings and might have flown under the radar until the NFL Regional Combine

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.

Superior athlete for his size who it appears did very well at the NFL Regional Combine running a 4.6/40 at 255 pounds !

renowned track and field athlete in Canada ... is the junior national titleholder in the javelin ... set the Ottawa record for his age in the javelin throw at 70 meters ... anchored the Thousand Islands Secondary School's 4x100 meter relay team and competed on the 4x100 meter relay team and competed on the 4x400 meter relay team
Projects as a Defensive End who could chip in as a fullback in the CFL and might make a great addition to the "Anwar Stewart Academy"... With these kinds of measurables he will surely get an NFL FA opportunity at the very least and his stock is sure to increase should he show up at the CFL combine.

Merci d'avoir partagé cette information.

Ca me fait plaisir... On est pas beaucoup mais on s'arrange !

Very interesting, thanks for posting.

Trying to steer this thing back away from money and contract BS to football :slight_smile:

Look at the pipes on that guy! You sure you didn`t doctor the photo? :smiley:

Rod Black, is that you? :smiley:

Its killing me he doesnt have a famous father!

It will be informative revisiting these profiles as we get closer to the draft. The only fly in the ointment is how many of these guys are going to get NFL looks. But I guess that comes with the territory of being a CFL fan.

Its the new normal... You keep drafting them every year they will filter back at some point for most of them. Every player I've posted a profile too is going to get NFL interest. When you look at the short term contracts these guys are signing, its actually a good thing if they go get some NFL coaching and conditioning before showing up. Instead of spending a year or two as PR and rotation guy. When they finally show they can make a contribution.
