Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Fluid mover with decent speed and his length allows him to cover effectively downfield
  • Shows good instincts when facing the action in zone coverage, and Strong has solid ball skills.
  • Can get up under a receiver’s chin and has the speed to flip his hips and run downfield. Strong has the quick and surprisingly powerful hands to jostle receivers early. But he’s at his best peeking into the backfield.
  • 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.
  • Tracks the ball well and has the natural ball skills for forcing turnovers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Has poor recognition skills when facing the action in zone coverage.
  • Isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
