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.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
  • Best fit is in a zone scheme considering he lacks the vertical speed to shadow elite receivers.
Weaknesses
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Lacks fluidity and explosion. Looks unnatural in backpedal and must improve fundamental tackling.
  • Average vertical speed and he doesn't trust his skills.
  • Struggles in man coverage when he has to turn and run; hips are stiff and he doesn't transition well.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
