Floyd, who will have two years of eligibility, had 47 tackles, including 32 solo, during his sophomore year. He also had four blocked kicks, nine pass breakups and two interceptions to help his team to a 12-1 record.

In fact, Reginald Porter runs a 4.43 40-yard dash, but with an injured hip flexor? Not so much. “And you’ve gotta run full speed in football,” he said. Hundredths of a second can determine whether a receiver is blanketed or wide open, and Porter and his secondary teammates were sometimes hundredths of a second and thus miles behind Pac-12 burners in 2013. Now a healthy sophomore, Porter is part of the reason that cornerback is beginning to feel like one of Utah’s s...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Rashard Stewart took a much more circuitous route. To see his name at the top of the cornerbacks is not to appreciate his odyssey to get there. Utah State’s senior defensive back came in with an ambiguously defined role, flipped positions once or twice and had a few injuries block his path.
