NFL Prospect Preview: Florida Safety Matt Elam

Elam is a guy that if you have seen him play you absolutely loves what he brings.  He plays like a guy that you would want on your side if you ever got into a fight.  Elam's 4-picks and 5-passes broken up in 2012 put some numbers on his resume to go with the tape that shows his play.  His downsize is his size.  At under 5' 10", can he match up to the height he will see in the NFL?

Here is my coversation with Cody Jones of FightinGators.com on Elam

I would be SHOCKED if the Packers picked Elam.  As much praise as he has gotten, and deservingly so, if there is a GM in Football that takes guys off his board for being undersized it is Ted Thompson.  With guys like Eric Reid and Jonathan Cyprien fitting the physical mold, Elam shouldn't have to worry if Green Bay isn't an ideal destination for him.
