As a sophomore in 2019 he played in 11 games and logged 129 snaps for the Buckeyes. He made 10 tackles, no assists, and had 2 stops. In coverage he totaled 3 pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 77.1.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Eager to come downhill as a tackler and plays with a physical edge, and he’s effective as a blitzer.
  • Good speed in pursuit with the chase skills to track down the ballcarrier.
  • Quicker than Proctor is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
  • Reads and deciphers quickly, reacting in a flash with a nose for the ball. Jumps routes and drives fast on plays in front of him.
  • Great on route recognition and has click-and-close ability
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
  • 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.
  • While Proctor has man coverage skills, he can struggle when sitting back in zone. He’s not instinctive and struggles reading downfield routes and tracking the deep ball.

*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.
