Derek Stingley Jr. CB LSU Scouting Report

Position rank: 1
40-yard dash time: 4.29-seconds
Height: 6-1, Weight: 195 lbs
A five-star recruit according to 247Sports. Sport Administration major. Started all 15 games as a freshman. Started all 7 games as a sophomore. Grandfather played football at Purdue and in the Pros for five seasons before suffering a career-ending injury. Father played football at Purdue, college baseball at Triton College, and was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies.
Highly touted since high school. Through two years of college, he has exceeded all expectations. Stingley has established himself as the best cornerback in college football and will likely be a top-five pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Strengths
  • Good agility and balance when shadowing his target. Competitive player.
  • Physical downfield and matches up well with bigger receivers. Tough and fiery with very good competitiveness. High-effort player.
  • Can play in all systems.
  • Very aggressive attacking receiver blocks and tackles like a safety.
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Gets an effective jam on the receiver and has loose enough hips to turn and run.
  • 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.
  • Supreme athlete
Weaknesses
  • NFL quarterbacks may take advantage of his aggressiveness in man and zone to eye up short routes and go over the top - but overall it's difficult to find any issues in his game
