2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Davon House, CB, New Mexico State

by Cory J. Bonini on April 4, 2011 @ 17:08:51 PDT


New Mexico State cornerback Davon House was a productive four-year player for the Aggies and should be a fairly high pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

House is a ball hawk (11 INTs) and a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. He finished the 2010 season with 57 total tackles (68 in 2009), three interceptions and a touchdown. 


  • Size (6-foot 1/2, 200 pounds)
  • Productive (11 career interceptions)
  • Capable zone defender
  • Jams well at the line
  • Davon House, draft prospect
    Taking it to the House
    Dangerous with the ball in his hands (three career interception returns for scores)
  • Enough hip flexibility and fluidity to excel in man coverage
  • Durable
  • Good work ethic
  • Speed (official 4.44-second 40-yard dash; 4.35 unofficial)
  • Has improved as a tackler
  • Strong sense of timing


  • Just average instincts
  • Relies too much on athleticism
  • Footwork is sometimes questionable and leads to added separation by the wideout
  • Overly aggressive in run support

Expected draft placement

House has the size and speed to be a very good cornerback in the NFL. He should be a second-round selection; in worst-case scenario, he still won't fall out of the third round. 

The Washington Redskins (No. 41), Houston Texans (No. 42), Minnesota Vikings (No. 43), Detroit Lions (No. 44) and San Francisco 49ers (No. 45) can be considered suitors for House in the second round.
