Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Reads the QB and gets good breaks on the ball. Bigger hitter than his slight frame implies. Closes quickly and generates explosion.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • While built more like a cornerback than a safety, he has the vision, range, hitting ability, and ball skills teams want at free safety in the pass-heavy NFL.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Has very inconsistent tackling technique and too often just throws himself at the lower body of the ballcarrier instead of wrapping up.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
