Strengths
  • Fast and agile, he sticks to receivers and closes on the ball.
  • Changes directions with ease and has the frame to hold up at any spot in the secondary.
  • An athletic but narrow-based corner with a lean frame,
  • Reads receivers' routes and anticipates throws at the first down marker. Covers a lot of ground in a hurry when in space. Reads the quarterback's eyes and sees the routes very quickly, then has straight-line speed to arrive with or just after the ball.
  • Should excel as a zone defender because of his closing speed to wrap receivers after the catch.
Weaknesses
  • He's not a tenacious tacker and plays the position with a wide receiver's mentality.
  • Holds the ball loosely. Inconsistent in run support. Average tackler
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Receivers can arm-bar downfield to create separation. He's too often caught peeking in the backfield and gives ground on double moves.
