Kaiir Elam DB Florida Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Aware zone cornerback who is also adept in man coverage, flashing physical hand punch at the line and straight-line speed to stay with receivers downfield.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
Weaknesses
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • 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.
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Has a lean, narrow frame and needs to get stronger.
