Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has a nice blend of length, speed, and quickness. He’s at his best mirroring routes underneath, showing fluid movement skills and the ability to change directions on a dime.
  • Instinctive, adept at reading routes and anticipating throws, and strong in zone coverage.
  • Has the change-of-direction ability to mirror underneath but did solid work out of press and off coverage.
  • Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
  • Shows good instincts when facing the action in zone coverage, and Valentine has solid ball skills.
  • Has a powerful punch at the line of scrimmage and can deliver it while moving his feet. Valentine also has the powerful core and hips to stick to a receiver downfield and escort him to the sideline
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Questionable technique and Valentine gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Valentine gets beat over the top too often, and he tends to panic and get too handsy when running downfield.
  • Isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position
