Judie, Coryell

Card: Leaf Rookies 2012
Acquired: 2012, Box Breaker

Quietly Coryell Judie appeared on the scene at Texas A&M after playing JUCO at Fort Scott CC. A dangerous returner and cornerback, Judie finished his JUCO time with 7 picks, and 82 tackles. As FS’ primary return man he averaged 26.8 yards per kick return, and 15.1 on punt returns, earning JUCO All American Honors. He’d get a medical redshirt from A&M in 2009, and then show his colors in 2010 by intercepting 4 passes and recording 57 tackles. Judie also was 5th nationally in kick returns with 605 yards on 20 attempts and two touchdowns. This was good enough to help him notch second-team All-Big 12 honors at CB, honorable mention at KR, and Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. He’d have off-season shoulder surgery. A hamstring injury in 2011 hampered his senior season, limiting him to just 22 tackles. Still he impressed scouts enough at his pro day, with a 4.38 40 and his performance in many other drills. The Broncos signed him as a free agent after the 2012 draft, but he’d be cut in July with the designation of a non-football injury. He’d briefly be on the roster of the Edmonton Eskimos in  2013, before joining the AFL Portland Thunder in 2014.
