I guess Getty Images does not have the extensive catalog I would have expected...Albany State don't get no respect.

I know of a team that is sorely lacking in cornerbacks who would be wise to look closely at this kid. Looks like he doesn't mind tackling...

He's so fast he couldn't be photographed! Wait... he ran a 4.5?

What to do with that seventh pick? Or just give him a call after the draft. choices choices.

I don't really see the appeal on this kid. He was never tested against elite college players and his athletic ability doesn't scream "potential".

Not saying he couldn't find a spot on someone's roster. I just don't expect him to be a future starter.

This must be a picture of Prathon taken at the combine.

The 4.23 short shuttle says it all, no? I heard he had a great game against Pea Soup State. I love CB's that can tackle but, c'mon people, this is a stretch!

ha, my Colts are looking at him... hmm... maybe we are looking for the Pierre Garcon for the D.

ha, my Colts are looking into this guy... seems ok... he'll need to be brought along and built up. Looks like we are looking for a Pierre Garcon for the D.
