Yiadom was a bit of a late bloomer for the Eagles, not earning a consistent starting spot until his junior year. His best work came as a senior in 2017, when he started all 13 games and finished with 53 tackles, nine passes defensed and a pair of interceptions.
Yiadom helped himself at the Senior Bowl, where he showed the ability to shut down receivers in press coverage. Many scouts felt Yiadom was a mid to late-round pick going into the week in Mobile, but he could be a climber as more teams covet the type of length that made the Legion of Boom secondary tick in Seattle.
At 6-1 with long arms, Yiadom should be able to match up with the NFL's taller receivers outside the numbers. Scouts like the way he can play both press and off-man coverages, but are a bit concerned about his ability to handle transitions and feel like he might be overmatched early in his career while he adjusts to superior route-runners. But his blend of athletic ability and size figures to buy him time, and if he winds up in the right system, Yiadom might be able to contribute sooner than expected.
