100 in 100: Joe Haden (17 of 100)

Since we took a look at how Brandon LaFell got the better of Haden in yesterday's 100 in 100 piece, I felt it was only fair to take a look at some of Haden's better qualities this afternoon.

In some of the earlier Mock Drafts of the year, a lot of folks had Joe Haden coming to San Francisco. While I never have agreed with this pick here because I feel like Nate Clements and Shawntae Spencer do a very good job, he is the best Corner in all of the Corner's that are coming out this year. I feel that if the Niners are going to upgrade our secondary next season, they will have to get a safety with a bit more range. Cornerback is not a very high area of concern, but it is still a concern as far as the future is concerned.

Haden does play with a very physical mind set and he doesn't shy away from contact. His coverage sometimes does come in to question though. If he can work on a few things before coming in to a training camp, he may have a positive step in the right direction. Haden may have the skill-set to be an above average Corner in the NFL, but at this point, it is hard for me to see him in that elite class. He takes alot of chances much like Dre Bly, and sometimes it works in his favor and other times he is exploited by it.

The Florida Junior started all three years while there. In '07, Haden as a True Freshman started 12 games only missing one due to an ankle sprain. As a Sophomore in '08, Haden started all 14 games and again only missed one game in '09 as a Junior.

Below, we'll highlight some of Haden's collegiate career with some video, stats, and honors.

 

The feed here highlights Haden's ability to make plays on the ball as I mentioned above. He has some of the tools that it will take at the next level but again, has to fine tune some of what he does negatively. This is one of those players that I see could go either way in his talent at the next level. It is always a gamble in any pick, but some players are more of a gamble than others.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTIONS:

Most have Haden going very high in the draft and some even have him going top 10, including myself. BUT, I will say that just because I have him going that high, it doesn't equate to "I think he's a top 10 talent". He will have alot to live up to as far as expectations are concerned and some times that can make or break a player.

Possibilities -- 1st Round; Chiefs, Browns, Seahawks, Bills, Jags, 49ers, Giants, Falcons
