Strengths
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
  • Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
  • Very aggressive attacking receiver blocks and tackles like a safety.
  • Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks ideal size and frame with limited measureables and short arms that render him helpless against bigger receivers.
  • Only average height and a choppy backpedal. Not surehanded catching interceptions or punts.
  • Has a high backpedal and loses a step in transition. Plays with adequate speed but there are concerns about his ability to handle the truly explosive speedsters of the NFL.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
