Source: USC Safety Dion Bailey Met with Panthers, Bengals
The converted linebacker is drawing middle-round grades from draft analysts. He was named second-team All-Pac-12 Conference. Bailey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at the NFL scouting combine and bench pressed 225 pounds 14 times at his campus Pro Day workout. At the combine, he had a 34-inch vertical leap.
Conventional wisdom says the Panthers will target a mid-round CB provided the first couple of rounds go as planned. Bailey isn't a speedster but more of an in the box safety? Could he put on a little weight and move back to LB? Regardless of what they plan to do with him keep an eye on him in the 4th or 5th round.
