Al-Hajj Shabazz, CB West Chester

Analysis: The 6’2″, 200 pound Shabazz was a shutdown cornerback for West Chester’s secondary last season, where he had 38 tackles, 15 passes deflected, and 4 interceptions last season for the Golden Rams. He was named to the All-Super Region First Team and was a 1st-Team All-American.

At his pro day, he ran a 4.63 forty time, had a 35 inch vertical jump, and recorded 12 reps on the bench press.

Like potentially Celiscar and Mitchell before, Shabazz will have a shot to become the Colts 5th cornerback, especially if he can prove to be a standout on special teams. Additionally, the team could kick the tires on him at safety, where he may be more of a natural fit, and there appears to be a backup safety spot up for grabs. He’ll face plenty of competition, but Shabazz has shown exceptional athleticism in the secondary and could be a potential diamond in the rough for the Colts.

Via his Draft Profile:

"BOTTOM LINE Good frame and length with an ability to make plays on throws underneath. The biggest questions for Shabazz will be his ability to carry deep speed down the field and whether or not he can improve his technique and physicality as a tackler to give him a shot at playing some safety."
