Skrine is a serious burner and ran a 4.37 at the combine. At 5'9", 186 lbs, he is a bit undersized, but can make up for it with closing speed and a knack for the game. A team captain, Skrine is an intelligent player who seems always ready to learn about the game.
He may have to add some bulk, but is arguably a third round talent in the fifth round, and is one of those guys that will do everything he can to see the field. There is a good chance that Skrine plays nickel to start, and will get a lot of snaps against 3 and 4 wide receiver sets.
Skrine isn't a great tackler and needs to become more of a ball-hawk, but at this pick, he is an incredible value. You can add strength, but it is always said that you can't teach speed or instincts--and Skrine has plenty of both.
