Looks like Miami has added to their cornerback competition by adding undersized but explosive cornerback Bobby McCain out of the Memphis Tigers.

McCain returned four punts for touchdowns during his career and he's widely seen as a high motor, high instinct player who can tackle well and limit yards after catch. His Combine performance was excellent as he led all corners in four of seven drill categories (broad jump, 3 cone drill, 20 yard shuffle, 60 yard shuffle).

We may be kicking a dead horse at this point, but the run on corners along with his performance at the Combine likely moved up McCain from a borderline draft pick to a sure fifth rounder and a competitor for a roster spot.
