Antwaine Richardson DB Maryland Draft Profile

Strengths
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Keeps the ball and man in front of him in zone and might be a candidate to convert to safety.
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks instincts with shaky awareness, is overaggressive and too often bites on fakes and misdirection.
  • Not great in man coverage. Does not have elite speed and loses speed/gears down while turning.
  • Not consistent with his footwork, is a bit choppy in transition and is slow to find the ball on deep routes.
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
  • Lacks the timed speed to mirror and maintain contact downfield. Loses the ball on slow-developing plays and has a tendency to reach and grab when he gets antsy.
