Draft Profile: Bio
Donte Kent from Harrisburg High School was rated a 2-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Kent opted to join Central Michigan.

In 2020 as a freshman Kent saw action in 5 games and played a total of 141 snaps at cornerback for the Chippewas. He recorded 11 tackles, one assist, while adding 2 stops. In coverage Kent notched up no pass breakups, one interception, and a disapointing QB rating when targetted of 117.0.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 13 games and logged 840 snaps for the Chippewas. He made solid 56 tackles, 5 assists, and had 13 stops. In coverage he totaled 13 pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 98.6.

In 2022 as a junior Kent played in 11 games and contributed on 808 snaps. He chalked up 50 tackles, 6 assists, and added 15 stops. In the secondary Kent forced 11 pass breakups, no interceptions, and gave up QB rating when targetted of 95.6.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Does a good job getting his head around in time when playing with his back to the line of scrimmage. Has the ability to cover quickness underneath.
  • Top-end speed is good and is capable of turning and running in press coverage. Kent also shows good instincts when sitting back in zone and looking into the backfield.
  • Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
  • Explodes out of his backpedal and has the hands and coordination to force interceptions.
  • Tracks the ball well and has the natural ball skills for forcing turnovers.
  • Has a nice blend of length, speed, and quickness. He’s at his best mirroring routes underneath, showing fluid movement skills and the ability to change directions on a dime.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks a physical element to his game, and Kent doesn’t have a frame that can carry a lot of weight. He’ll get outmuscled at the top of routes by bigger receivers.
  • Susceptible to the big plays as a gambler at the catch point and as a catch-and-run victim. He’s also too reluctant to come up and make hits in run support, often focusing on the strip more than the tackle.
  • Neither his size nor his straight-line speed would be considered elite

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
