Christian Holmes CB Oklahoma State Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Savvy using his hands to get to the ball without drawing flags. Willing tackler and high-effort leader.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Aware zone cornerback who is also adept in man coverage, flashing physical hand punch at the line and straight-line speed to stay with receivers downfield.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • A tough, fearless athlete who plays with a physical and aggressive mentality on the football field.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
  • Has a high backpedal and loses a step in transition. Plays with adequate speed but there are concerns about his ability to handle the truly explosive speedsters of the NFL.
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.
  • Too hands-on downfield and has suspect instincts.
