Scouting Report: Strengths
- Reads receivers' routes and anticipates throws at the first down marker. Covers a lot of ground in a hurry when in space. Reads the quarterback's eyes and sees the routes very quickly, then has straight-line speed to arrive with or just after the ball.
- He’s a willing and capable hitter in run support and closes fast to make plays against quick screens.
- Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
- He’s physical at the line of scrimmage, showing unexpected power in his hands.
- Willing in run support, coming downhill quickly when Kinchens has a chance to make a play.
- Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
- Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- NFL quarterbacks may take advantage of his aggressiveness in man and zone to eye up short routes and go over the top
- Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
- Plays out of control too often, laying a lot of big hits but also missing a lot of tackles along the way. Kinchens also needs to do a better job reading routes when sitting back as a single-high safety.
