Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Sprewell tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • Has excellent ball skills, tracking the ball effectively and instinctively taking the right route to break up the play. Sprewell has the strong hands and coordination to come down with interceptions.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and has the innate feel for high-point passes. He’s willing to come up and fill against the run and seems to take pride in delivering violent hits in run support.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Has a cornerback body and needs to continue to get stronger to be more effective shedding blocks.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
  • Despite his size, he’s not an overly physical tackler. Sprewell might have to add some weight at the next level in order to become more physical.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
