Strengths
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
  • Aware zone cornerback who is also adept in man coverage, flashing physical hand punch at the line and straight-line speed to stay with receivers downfield.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
Weaknesses
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Lacks the recovery speed to catch receivers if he waits for them to arrive.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
