The Bengals added a DB at the end of the third round, getting the last on-site prospect left in the green room in Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee.
Ghee wowed scouts and coaches alike with impressive performances at the Senior Bowl practices and the Wake Forest pro day. He measured in at 6 feet even, and 190 pounds, ran the forty in a quick 4.45 seconds, did 15 reps, had a 37 inch vertical, and a 10’7″ broad jump.
Ghee finished his career with 36 games played, 154 tackles, 25 pass break-ups, and 1 interception. Draftcountdown.com’s evaluation:
Terrific athlete — Good size with long arms and big hands — Excellent speed with a burst to recover and close — Quick and agile — Great leaping ability — Smooth with fluid hips and transitions well — Solid instincts — Can play either man or zone coverage — Tough — Physical at the line — Delivers some knockout blows — Does a nice job in run support — Confident with short memory — A lot of quality experience.
Inconsistent — Is too aggressive at times — Footwork is very raw and will need to be refined — Not a playmaker, lacking great hands, ball skills and awareness — Misses some tackles — Tends to get tall in his backpedal — Durability may be a concern — A bit of an underachiever.
Was a three-year starter for the Demon Deacons — Brother, Patrick, was a safety at Wake Forest (2002-2006) and bounced around the NFL for a couple of years — Didn’t participate in any team activities in 2006 due to academic difficulties — Dealt with foot and knee injuries during his college career but to his credit did not miss much time — Looked like a future star as a sophomore but then regressed as a junior and senior — Very talented with a well-rounded game but doesn’t always play up to his impressive physical tools — Has Boom or Bust potential
