Scouting Report: Strengths
  • 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.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Reads the QB and gets good breaks on the ball. Bigger hitter than his slight frame implies. Closes quickly and generates explosion.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
