Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Can get up under a receiver’s chin and has the speed to flip his hips and run downfield. Bernard-Converse has the quick and surprisingly powerful hands to jostle receivers early. But he’s at his best peeking into the backfield.
  • He tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • Has good awareness and quick feet. Fluid backpedal, aggressive attacking the receiver from the snap, and flashes spectacular ball skills.
  • Tracks and plays the ball well, and has decent hands for the interception. Provides very tight man coverage with playmaking ability in zone.
  • His ball skills are very good. Bernard-Converse tracks the ball well downfield and has the hands and coordination to come away with interceptions even when Bernard-Converse isn’t targeted often.
  • He’ll line up in press at times, where he has a quick and powerful punch. His ball skills are good, and he plays with an extremely confident and competitive demeanor.
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Bernard-Converse plays high and tends to struggle with change of direction, and Bernard-Converse also shows some stiffness when he has to flip his hips.
  • Struggles to transition and drive out of his backpedal when playing off-man. Like a lot of physical corners at the collegiate level, he’s too handsy downfield at this point.
  • Bernard-Converse runs well, but he doesn’t have elite recovery speed.
