Tennessee Titans Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 3 - Pick Number: 100 (TEN)

MVP of the 2019 Las Vegas Bowl and son of former NFL cornerback Alex Molden (Saints amongst others). A smaller cornerback likely to play in the slot - shifty and 'quick' with a great work ethic - has great instincts and football smarts and is able to do a great job of mirroring receivers - some teams may be wary of his physical attributes but he has the ability to be a great asset as a nickel back.

A corner that has safety and nickel versatility. He lacks ideal height but is compact while having good overall athletic ability displayed by an explosive closing burst, lateral agility, change of direction skills, and fluid hips to flip to assist with his very good transitions. He has ok speed although can be beaten by speed receivers. He possesses pro quickness, which is required for slot defenders. He has a low, stance and has active hands despite only being average in press situations due to having shorter arms. He plays with exceptional competitive toughness and was a team leader for the Huskies. A true competitor with all the intangibles you could ever want.

*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.
