Strengths
  • Plays the ball as if it was thrown for him, showing burst back to the ball as well as good timing for the jump ball.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • Closing speed and willingness to make the big hit make him one of the more versatile safeties in the class.
  • Very good athleticism and flexibility. Has plus speed for the position and a second gear with good recovery speed to make up for missed plays.
  • Has legitimate NFL-caliber cover skills. Has a quick, low backpedal with a fluid hip turn to cover receivers down the field.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks the recovery speed to catch receivers if he waits for them to arrive.
  • Not enough hip fluidity to adjust to topnotch NFL route runners.
  • Suspect technician who too often lets the action come to him and energy and effort are too inconsistent.
  • Holds the ball loosely. Inconsistent in run support. Average tackler
  • 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.
