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.
