College Combine Results
Strengths
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
  • Good speed in pursuit with the chase skills to track down the ballcarrier.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Has good trajectory assessment on the thrown ball, breaks quickly and has decent ball skills
  • 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.
  • Has an NFL frame with strong hands, the ability to close quickly on underneath routes and the size to tackle with a thump.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
  • Lacks elite speed to recover if beaten on double move. Ducks his head and swipes too often on open-field tackles.
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Lowers his shoulder for the big hit rather than wrapping up securely.
