Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
  • Reads the QB and gets good breaks on the ball. Bigger hitter than his slight frame implies. Closes quickly and generates explosion.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
Weaknesses
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
  • Needs work on backpedaling to prevent defenders from getting behind him.
