Scouting Report: Strengths
- Quicker than Conner is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
- His ball skills are very good. Conner tracks the ball well downfield and has the hands and coordination to come away with interceptions even when he isn’t targeted often.
- Has the change-of-direction ability to mirror underneath but did solid work out of press and off coverage.
- 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.
- Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- The majority of the time last season, Conner was able to physically overwhelm opposing receivers early in the down, a scenario that won’t play out as often against NFL receivers.
- Conner plays high and tends to struggle with change of direction, and he also shows some stiffness when he has to flip his hips.
- Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
- He’ll draw plenty of flags early on with his playing style. Conner is hesitant when facing the action in zone coverage.
