Demani Richardson SS Texas A&M Scouting Report

Position rank: 9
40-yard dash time: 4.55-seconds
Height: 6-1, Weight: 210 lbs
Strengths
  • Understands zone concepts and is aware of his surroundings. Reliable tackler who reacts quickly when he sees it.
  • Likely has the length and physical ability to fit in a press scheme but ideal fit as a zone defender because of his recognition skills and an above-average burst to close on the ball.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
  • Has good football awareness to read and react quickly and stay balanced and patient in space.
  • Has good body control and balance to redirect and break down in the open field.
Weaknesses
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Has an NFL frame with strong hands, the ability to close quickly on underneath routes and the size to tackle with a thump.
  • Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
