Strengths
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
  • 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.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
