Israel Mukuamu CB South Carolina Draft Profile

Dallas Cowboys Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 6 - Pick Number: 227 (DAL)
Strengths
  • Physical downfield and matches up well with bigger receivers. Tough and fiery with very good competitiveness. High-effort player.
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
  • Savvy using his hands to get to the ball without drawing flags. Willing tackler and high-effort leader.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Has an NFL frame with strong hands, the ability to close quickly on underneath routes and the size to tackle with a thump.
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • 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.
