I figured by track record, size, and sytems that most GM's would have him a 2nd round maybe early 3rd round pick.
I was wondering the same thing....
IMHO... It's all because he is slow as molasses syrup. Menzies is a baller but he is not an every down corner with his lack of speed.
Also, some people see a position change to safety and there may be size and durability issues if he makes that move.
Somone is going to get a steal with him, I thought he would have already been off the board by now, but guess some NFL teams think he is too slow..... All of these CBs from the cup cake conferences are going, but a cb from the SEC that more than held his own against the top competition in college football is still on the board, that doesn't make sense, some teams are more worried about measurables than production..... Same goes for Chapman, someone is going to get a heck of a NG and he too should already be off the board if not for his knee injury. These are 2 sure picks IMO, when other teams are taking some chances on some players with question marks....

The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Dude had football speed and he makes plays. He may not run a 4.4 but line him up, and he will stay with whoever he is covering, he did that every week in the SEC. He has a high football iq, and puts up a ton of production, not to mention he us strong as an ox.....
What were his combine numbers? They can unfairly move players down draft boards
Would love to see him go to the Bucs to play with Barron. No brainer if he lasts to the 6th or 7th.

The speed between the SEC and the NFL is drastically different. He's pretty slow and there isn't an abundance of WR talent in the SEC currently. I think he's a great college corner but with his speed man to man is gonna be an issue.
Alot of smoke about him moving to Safety.
I could buy that
If he's going to be a safety he is going to have to put on some muscle.
Unfortunately, the stop watch is what is used to judge speed and not film study. Menzie is a very underrated talent. I struggle to remember a single time where Menzie was beat downfield last year.

Running the 40 in speedos and running in pads are two totally different things... Menzie has football speed, he is quick, and is in the right place. When you get to the 4th rd everybody has some type of flaw here, but at this point Menzie would be a steal... That was my point, Menzie went up against guys already drafted and he matched up fine with them, don't recall him getting beat either, plus he is great against the run and blitzing off the edge...,
Glad to see Chapman go!
Carolina Panthers just selected a corner from CCU that ran 4.66
Someone is going to be pleasantly surprised when they get Menzie. I am flabergasted why he has not been picked yet.
Id say watch out for dalls at pick 17 in the 5th. Menzie could go there.

Look for Menzie to go soon, he is falling because teams don't know what to do with him, sound familiar. He is a little slow to be a CB, and not really big enough to be a safety. So he can be a nickel corner or add bulk to become a safety. I would have like for him to go to Green Bay and learn from Woodson. I think a spot like that would be an ideal situation for him to land in.
It was his 4.63 40. He is a solid player, and will get a shot in KC.
KC loves them some SEC players. Too bad they have the best safety in the NFL pretty much
